Ingenue Collection

It has been said that Albert Einstein wore the exact same outfit every single day and had a closet full of the same, shirts, suits, ties, socks and shoes. Now wearing the same outfit everyday would be a little dull, but what about the same colors? Having a closet full of various styles but all in the same colorway may actually work! By having the same colorways you can create a signature look for yourself and getting dressed would be a breeze!  It's very Einstein but without the repetition- now that's genius!

The first brand I would fill my closet with to achieve this color uniformity would be Los Angeles based label Ingenue. Not only are their designs darling, but they have incorporated the chicest of color combinations into their collection- black & white! Having a closet full of Ingenue's girly, Valley of The Dolls inspired dresses, rompers and separates would be the epitome of color coordination perfection and retro sex appeal! Very smart.

Amber Anderson for Harper's Bazaar Espanol

Here is a editorial straight out of my Mod pop-art dreams! Beautiful Amber Anderson is photographed by Benjamin Kanarek for Harper's Bazaar Espanol May 2011 issue. This editorial pops with beaming colors, lively prints, and Miss Anderson looking like a very swinging kitten! This illuminating pictorial makes me want to load up on orange lip gloss, trim my hair, relish in bright colors and all around (try to) look as fab as Amber.

Separated at birth?

Well more like separated by a few decades. It amazes me that young celebrities like Lily Allen and Daisy Lowe have dopplegangers who were born a good 30 years before them. The physical similarities are uncanny. Kate Bush and Daisy Lowe have the exact doe eyes, sultry brown mane and even similar pouty smiles. As where Lily Allen and Billie Davis have the same big, round dark eyes and thick 60's vibe bangs. I love them all and just comes to show you that old can be new again and great beauty transcends time!

Kate Bush born 1958, Daisy Lowe born 1989

Bille Davis born 1945, Lily Allen born 1985.

Happy 2012 from Ahoy hoy!

A very happy New Year to all! My New Year resolution for 2012 is to drink more water and to write more blog posts. I chose easy things that are more achievable than my real goals of a 150K salary and to grow to be 5'10 in height. (Girls get a second growth spurt at 27 correct?)

Here's to 2012!
