Christmas list & warm wishes

The time is finally upon us and my dear how soon it came. Once again it is that time of year for celebrations, family, and gifts to those you love and from those who love you.

This Christmas is feeling very melancholy thus far. No one, not even I could have predicted all of the changes I have been through in 2011. Left a job, got a new job, left that job and happy with the current endeavor I have now. New friends have come into my life while a few old ones have distanced themselves.   Overall, although 2011 has certainly not been one of the worst years of my life, I am happy to see Christmas and feel comfort in a new year approaching.

But before I get too mushy and analytical about the new year, lets take one holiday at a time and enjoy Christmas. I wish everyone of my blog followers and people who have come across this crazy little blog I call mine a very, very joyous holiday full of love and warmth.

Here is my 2011 Christmas wishlist:

Alexander Girard Hardcover Book

Beau Bo Transparent Flare Raincoat

Cutter and Gross tortoiseshell sunglasses

Darling Chiffon Lace Babydoll Dress

Kate Spade Double Bow Bangle in Black

Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in Lune Carmin

Merry Christmas my babies.

i-D Dreams & Aspirations Issue

i-D magazine has it! They have it bad! The right idea for a incredibly mod pictorial that is! There is not one thing I dislike about this retro, fantasy -laced photo shoot. The styling is superb beyond belief, the shots done in black in white with just a flash of accenting color is devilishly chic, and the clothing I pray to the clothes gods that one day I can be blessed with such fantastic fashions! With the oversize accessories, heavy mod vibe, and the doll like features of the model, this pictorial looks like it could have come straight out of  the Swinging Sixties, if the Swinging Sixties had happened in Wonderland. :)

Girl Crush! - Rooney Mara

Oh Rooney, let me count the ways! You are officially a girl crush of mine and you have joined the ranks of other girl crushes such as Cecilia Mendez, Alison Nix and Ranya Mordanova. Yes, I totally have a type, but who cares? Your slim physic, elegance, bright eyes, and of course, lets not forget PERFECT HAIRCUT definitely distinguishes you among the legions of boring, long haired, overly sexed up women.

Here is Rooney at the CFDA/ Vogue Awards on November 14  looking beautiful and Vulcan  like.

And I do believe she is wearing Nars new lip color, Train Bleu, which I have recently bought and have been obsessed with as of lately.

Here's to years of success Rooney!

Orla Kiely Autumn / Winter 2011 Collection

Irish designer, Orla Kiely, has took a turn at dark & sophisticated in her latest A/W collection. Still holding on to her youthful, playful esthetic, her current collection does seem to have grown up a bit this season.

In this collection you'll see a big introduction of darker, more seasoned colors like black, olive, charcoal gray, and variations of rust. There is also an addition of  refined pieces like high waisted pegged slacks,  sharp tailored trousers, and wide legged pants. (Because a girl can't live on dresses alone which I have recently been learning).

But of course the collection wouldn't be complete without Orla Kiely's smart tailored coats, elegant knit dresses, and alluring patterns that have put Orla Kiely's talent and creativity on the map! Overall this collection shows us that growing up may not be all that bad!
