runway. review.

Kate and Laura Mulleavy have been everywhere lately (see: Vogue's article/interview with the sisters about their new healthier lifestyles). The sisters behind Rodarte are causing quite a stir within the fashion industry, and with good reason.

The pieces in their Fall 2008 collection are a dazzling.muted mix of deshevelment and polish; two parts street, one part couture, one part g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s. Everything from the tulle ballerina dresses to the white fishnets was deconstructed. Their clothes are not only new and exciting, they have the ability to make you completely rethink the way you dress: the Mulleavy sisters are sort of like the Arakawa and Gins of the fashion world.

If I had to describe their fall collection in two words? toxic mermaid.

(yes, that's a compliment)

bright. looks. for. spring.

I don't like Jennifer Lopez - at all - really.

But her $12,000 Zagliani Crocodile Puffy Satchel and Christian Louboutin platforms are to die for!

look. of. the. day.

Nicole Richie. Black pea coat, striped tunic, Christian Louboutin black patent Miss Boxe wedges, Chanel bag and sunglasses.

kids. choice. awards.

Maybe this is naive, but I can't imagine that I'm the only person who thought that most of the attendees were inappropriately dressed for a kids' awards show:

Jennifer Love Hewitt seemed to be the only who looked appropriately dressed and totally cute!!

who. I. want. to. be...{in my next life}

Daria. Werbowy.

look. of. the. day.

I have to say that I would normally not put Victoria Beckham in the category of "people I'd like to dress like." She's at least 20 lbs. too skinny (why doesn't she just tip over when she carries such large bags??) and this makes and her wardrobe seem alien.

But today up popped a pic of her looking - gasp - like a (relatively) normal human being:

Miu Miu bag.

trend. report.

Lesa Wallace handbags @ Couture Candy:

inspired. by. lovely. little. trinkets

About a week ago I was gifted the loveliest thing: a tiny little box that was lovingly decoupaged with the most adorable things (and some of my favorites!): a pretty bird, a teacup, and black and white damask:

I thought that I would share it here, and share a spring outfit inspired by it!

I adore.adore Sarah Michelle Gellar - she always looks so terribly cute, and while I don't know her personally, she seems like a genuinely delightful person. Last night she (along with a slew of other Buffy alumni) attended the The Paley Center Buffy reuinion, dressed in an ultra Spring-y Chloe frock:

Some other lovely Chloe dresses that would make for a great spring:

ick. day. 2.

I have to admit that I've never actually watched Gossip Girl, so maybe these clothes look much different in an episode...but I doubt it. As far as wardrobe goes, does Leighton Meester have "frumpy," "granny," and "ugly" written into her contract?

newest. favorite. designer

I came across the name Juliette Hogan as I was looking for a Hogan bag (she doesn't design these); I'd never heard the name before. So I took a peek at some of her pieces and instantly fell in love.

Her pieces are elegant, but not fussy, and in colors that will always be in style. You can find out more at, but to give you a taste, a few of my favs from her spring line:
