LL Bean

I love LL Bean. Maybe not the most fashionable of brands, but I've been known to cart a boat and toat until it has holes, and good luck trying to get me out of my wicked good slippers (Seriously if you dont have a pair BUY THEM NOW. nothing is better on a rainy day than those puppies)

But LL Bean's reputation for mom-wear may just be changing with this announcement- It's launching a new line, called LL Bean Signature. I've only been able to see some small photos but I'm at least curious to see what this stalwart brand is introducing.


It's time for me to confess my love of all things striped. I've got quite a few hanging in my closet, and an ungodly number saved on my desktop. I was thinking of having just one gigantic stripes post but i figure why not space them out a little bit and make my love of stripes a regular feature?

To start us off we've got The Sartorialist's assistant Tracy. I love her classic pairing of the stripes with the cropped black pants but what really makes the look is the dotted scarf she throws on top.

Like oreos and peanut butter....

Erin Wasson and J. Crew? Yes please


What perfect basics. Great loafers, perfectly worn in jeans and a great oxford. Classic

Because I'm just about the luckiest girl in the world I was able to attend a couple of the shows at paris fashion week. My first one was Karl Lagerfeld and I couldn't think of a better way to start it.
I saw rihanna's smile at the dresses the closed the show, the dresses with the beautiful metallic details. But what made me smile were the beautifully tailored dresses that experimented so perfectly with volume. I wasn't close enough to see the details like guitars on the sides of the glasses and honestly I'm kind of glad because I feel like they distract from the great clean lines of my favorite pieces. I'm still dreaming of those jackets that swooped back up, the flowly shorts, and that exsquisite white dress. So light, simple, so perfect.

this image of mary kate steinmiller has been on all the big blogs. And as a major teen vogue fan I'm loving it.

back from when she was still an intern at teen vogue:

the row

Year after year I find myself returning to this video. When it first came out I watched it maybe 100 times, if not more, and run around my closet trying to make my closet into something like this video. Years later this is still how I want to dress.
Studying abroad, I'm particularly attracted to these simple perfectly-cut basics. The pieces you reach for over and over and work into a million different outfits. Theyre transitional, they're flexible, they can go out, they can stay at home.

photos are from starbucks and jane austen (and they get bigger when you click on them)

Vogue Nippon

these aren't exactly new photos but I'm really loving the look of the vogue nippon crew. I think it's great how the staff of each magazine seems to have a distinct personality. There's the black, spidery French Vogue, and the cheerful, colorful, ecclectic Teen Vogue. Vogue Nippon seems to be sharp, sophisticated, yet not afraid of some color.

cat deeley

Who is Cat Deeley? The host on So You Think You Can Dance (don't judge me, i occasionally watch trashy tv). Wouldn't expect her to be super stylish but I think she's looking pretty cute in these images

(don't you love her hair?)
