Street Style Bazaar

One of my favorite Harper's Bazaar shoots ever is this one photographed by Tommy Ton (you may know his blog Jak and Jill or you may have seen his fashion week coverage on It's styled (brilliantly) by Bazaar's Joanna Hillman.

I'm in love with every photo.

Check out the rest of the photos here or in the August issue of Bazaar.

Retro Modern

I hope you all got a chance to see the shoot with Elle Fanning in the July issue of Marie Claire. I'm still referencing it for ideas. It was such a great retro/60s style shoot (ie Tons of Prada!).

Lovely, right?

I never go online and look at items I can't (by any means) afford. It's absolute torture to do that. I limit myself to salivating over expensive wears at work and on magazine pages. Beyond that I try to stick with sites and items that fit in my budget.

So naturally, when I visited to check out which of this season's fantastic Miu Miu's would make it to retail, I had to pick some favorites.

 A version of this shoe have been all over the glossies. I particularly love this version. Bows and sequins are irresistible to me.
 These are simple, everyday kind of pumps. If you don't mind shiny shoes during the day, that is...

These are Prada and are pretty much the perfect fall shoe. Classic black and a chic touch of leopard. I would wear these out, if I could get my hands on them!

What items are you lusting after for fall?

Summer Love: Orange

Summer time is great for so many reasons: the weather, the dresses, the shoes. Come on! Aside from the stifling heat where I live, the getting is generally pretty good in the summer.

My uniform of choice is usually a sundress and wedge sandal combination.  Why complicate things with scarfs, jewelry, and belts, when simplicity does the trick?

Sorry for the many pictures, but I love the lighting. And I paid for it because it was over 100 degrees when I was taking these photos.

But down to business: I got this dress at Target for less than $10. Sometimes it amazes me that people can't see the possibility in a simple cut and a fun print. But, then again, how on Earth would we ever score great sales on underdog pieces?

The shoes are from Payless, which I think I scored as a part of their famous BOGO sales. I've never really considered Payless as a shoe option, but I've really liked and enjoyed wearing some of their shoes over the past few years. They wear pretty well!

 I had to include this last one as a blooper because I almost fell while trying to take it. I'm surprised I'm still smiling in this photo. But after all it is summer and that's something to smile about.
