light spectrum

The colors of the rainbow mean very different things to different people.  To photographer Kerstin Zu Pan the colors of the rainbow mean one thing and one the thing only: hair.  Just look at those eyelashes!!  As you know from this and this post, I am a big fan of hair color, but I think this takes the cake.

Bonne weekend mes amis!

Star spangled, red white and blue, all American, stars and stripes: any and all of the above.

With Independence Day coming up, I have to go all out American flaggin’ it up.  Generally the forth of July means the beach, a grill, a cooler full of Budweiser- or some combination of the three (Budweiser always included). With our great American Independence day falling on a Wednesday this year, I have to wonder what will be in store.  One way or another, I will be sure to be decked out head to toe in patriotic attire.  Somebody have a keg party already!

These are a few of’s choices for the holiday. Shop it here.

inspiration from gypsy warrior

My coworker and fellow fashion blogger, Nicole introduced me to Gypsy Warrior after I was admiring her so, so cool necklace. Their goods are grand, but what I really liked was the sites “inspirational” tumblr posts.  Here were some of my favorite images.

Check out my tumblr too, right here.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Pre-Fall 2012 lookbook- hmm, yes please. I love all the kitschy props used for the shoot.

test your eyes.

I studied fine art for 2 years back in college, and consider myself pretty good at gauging color tones, tints and shades (yes, these are all different!) not to mention I compare stone colors and finishes at work all day.  So I had to see where I stood with an official color assessment.  Zero being perfect, I got a three. Hey, just because I have to wear contacts doesn’t mean I’m colorblind!  Three points away from perfection, I think I can deal with this. 

I have always been one to excel...
Test your eyes here. What was your score?

a "fancy" update

Some things I "fancy"

Ok, we have done Pinterest. We know it, we love it.  But what if you could just click-to-buy the items we find and oh-so-love? In comes Fancy, the totally updated and integrated Pinterest. Just what we need, to find the coolest stuff and be able to purchase all within the same platform. What I like about this site too, is that it categorizes thing you “fancy’d” automatically. Who have time to create all those folders? So, a photo scrapbook, wishlist, online magazine and eCommerce site all rolled into one?  That’s pretty fancy.

Use my referral so I can buy shit! Oh, and follow me while you are at it.
Happy Weekend!
