I've been sporting a classic red on my nails for the majority of this winter. The red seems modern in comparison to the blacks/purples that everyone and their mother is wearing.
The red goes great with what has become my uniforms this winter- classic ripped blue jeans, white button-downs, black blazers, slouchy gray sweaters and sailor striped tees.

But looking at all the images coming back from fashion week, it's clear that the same great, bold red would look really really good on my lips as well. I'm a little intimidated by the idea, and am completely clueless at how to pick the right shade, but as soon as I have time I'm going to trot on down to the not-so-close closest department store to evaluate the options.

Teen Vogue Twice

More of the Teen Vogue Team
FW 2010 shows

Update: So after some googling I found out that Joanna Hillman has moved over to Harpers Bazaar where she is working as Senior Fashion Market Editor (the same position she held at Teen Vogue). But as a Teen Vogue Alum, I feel like it's not completely unjust posting her images alongside those of her former co-workers.

How great is this ad? As a lifelong rider I like the equestrian element, but I love the timeless appeal of the rayban sunglasses.

Maya Villiger

I love this post at Maya Villiger's website Turned Out. I feel like it really represents the direction in which I find myself moving- simple, classic. Stripes, denim, black.
And what a great name- who doesn't love croissants and chanel?

By the way, if you haven't checked out her interview on Jack and Jill I rightly recommend it. It is aamazing.

p.s. just for kicks- a video of her!
p.p.s one of the images in her collage I featured in a recent post
