All Hail McQueen

Sarah Burton's S/S 2011 Collection for Alexander McQueen


*I apologize for the inconvenience, I have replaced the original video that wouldn't work with the full version from YouTube! For some reason, the original video said that the video was currently unavailable.. But if you want to see the original video I posted (the shortened version), it still works on W Magazine's website! I have posted the link if you would rather watch that one.

     Here are some outfits I liked on Chictopia. I've always been a huge fan of neutral colors. I would say my style in clothing is very boho-chic with grunge undertones. Layering is a must & I love oversized button up shirts!

Lanvin x H&M

I like Lanvin, but for some reason I honestly was not so excited for the Lanvin x H&M collaboration that came out today. I only found 2 pieces in the collection that I would actually want to buy - which is the faux fur jacket & the red heels! They are both so stunning & I'm definitely going to be saving up my money for them!

I wanna hear what you guys think about the collaboration!
Are you guys excited for it to hit stores?

Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston

I've always been fascinated by the decade of the 70's so when I heard of this documentary I, of course, became unbelievably excited. I first heard about it yesterday as I was reading through the November issue of the Elle UK magazine (I know, pretty late since it premiered in April). This documentary presents his rise as a legendary designer which later led to his devastating fall in the 80's. Roy Halston was not only known as America's first celebrity designer but also the fashion icon of the decade. As said by Elle magazine, "Halston was a talk show regular, a Studio 54 staple, and a close friend of Andy Warhol and his entourage." He lived the glamorous lifestyle, full of dancing, discos, and parties. I'm amazed by Studio 54 and extremely jealous of anyone who has ever had the opportunity to experience it before it shut down, so I'm very eager to see it come back to life in this movie! Plus, I can't wait to see Halston's extravagant life secondhand so I'll definitely be watching this asap :)

Team Pacquiao

     Last night's Pacquiao VS. Margarito boxing match was so intense! I was actually pretty nervous at the beginning because Margarito was bigger & taller compared to Pacquiao but I'm so happy he won!! Even though I did feel bad for Margarito's eyes afterwards haha..

     On a side note though, I've recently became obsessed with brown nail polish lately! I don't know why but I can't get enough of it. I'm not just talking about any brown nail polish either, I'm talking like.. dark brown nail polish. I'm definitely going to be wearing it a lot throughout the Fall, as well as red nail polish (duh, it's my all time favorite haha). I'm in love with OPI's "Mauving to Manitoba" and "Vodka & Caviar".

Musical Eargasm

     Okay, so I've been lacking on the posts - the past couple of weeks have been hectic! School isn't getting any less stressful unfortunately, plus more & more things are popping into my life, keeping me busy. My Halloween weekend was crazy & fun, however I didn't really take much pictures. The weekend after that, or in other words, last weekend, was definitely memorable.

     Last Friday I went to The Rave in Milwaukee to see rapper J. Cole!!! He is most definitely one of my favorite music artists & it was so cool to see him live - he is SUCH a good performer too so throughout the show I often caught myself in a daze, just watching in awe haha. ♥

*Excuse the horrible photo quality! That's the best one I took from my not-so-great digital camera in the dark.

     It was slightly sad to see one of my favorite months come to an end, but I love November as well. It's that time of year when everyone prepares for the Winter & gets into the holiday spirit :) I've seen people getting a head start on their outdoor Christmas decorations & it definitely puts me in a good mood.

     Plus, if you have a similar taste in music as me, you've probably found November to be a month full of musical excitement! I mean first of all, Weezy was released out of jail on the 4th!!! Then Kid Cudi dropped his 2nd album, Man on the Moon 2: Legend of Mr. Rager. J. Cole's new mixtape, Friday Night Lights, comes out today. Then later this month, Kanye's gonna be releasing his new album called My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I mean COME ONNN, is that not a musical eargasm or what?!

     Right now, I'm just freaking in love with November haha.
