Happy Halloween!

I loved my post from last year so much that I'm reposting it today - it's just too perfect!  Have a great day (here's a Halloween song from Yo Gabba Gabba that I can't get out of my head to get you in the spirit!)

(originally posted 10/30/09)
Oh, I do love me some Halloween!  Here are some of my favorite images from Tim Burton's Magical Fashion editorial in Harpers Bazaar recently (photographed by Tim Walker).  I was looking through the magazine and these literally stopped me in my tracks.  So beautiful!  They are celebrating Tim Burton's retrospective at MoMA.  I would love to see that.  Enjoy and have a Happy Halloween!

My Five - Hermes Spring 2011

Here are (a few more than) five picks from Jean Paul Gaultier's last collection for Hermes.  Enjoy!

Lots of Kelly bags shown, don't recall any Birkins on the runway. Might we be seeing a shift towards the Kelly? (I still prefer the Birkin or the Lindy over the Kelly, in case you wanted to know - ha!)

 A little "transparent crocodile" - seriously (jacket and bag)...

Happy Weekend, some tags and an Inspiring Blog Award!

Hope everyone has a lovely Halloween weekend!  I've actually programmed posts for Saturday and Sunday (a my five and special Halloween post).  It's been one heck of a week with a midterm and a written project due, but I fit it all in - whew! 

I just love getting awards, I eat it up (I'm shallow like that - lol!).  Anyway, the super awesome Katie over at Fashion's Maven gave me An Inspiring Blog Award!  Yay!

1. Post this award (and the icon) on your blog.

2. List 3 things/people that inspire you.
My daughter and family

3. Award 5 (or more) other blogs that you believe are an inspiration for others.
Bon Chic Bon Gastronomique
Merci Blah Blah
Dressing Mommy
Sogni e Sorrisi
Fashionably Southern
Trend Wisely
and many, many more...pretty much any one in my sidebar is inspirational!

4. Let these bloggers know they won this award.

I got tagged by the adorable Kelly at Dressing Mommy!  Here's how it works: I answer the 8 questions that she asked me, then I come up with 8 questions of my own and then tag 8 of you to answer my questions. Here we go:

1. What is your ultimate vacation destination?  Hawaii, we went there for our honeymoon and I'm hooked.  I've been a fair number of places, but Hawaii is my favorite (yes, even more than Paris)

2. What did you want to be when you were growing up?  Fashion designer.  My apparel classes in college killed that dream, I stunk at the technical side!

3. If your life was a TV show, what would your theme song be?  That's hard, I really like the iCarly theme song (so positive and optimistic), as for an actual song, I honestly don't know.

4. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?  The ability to just transport somewhere instantly so I would never have to step on a plane again - lol!

5. Sneakers or Stilettos?  These days, flats.  But I have some killer stilettos in my closet waiting, just waiting....

6. What is your favorite holiday and why?  Halloween, I just love the whole vibe.  Thanksgiving is a close second (hello yummy food!). 

7. If a genie granted you three wishes, what would they be?  That our house would sell, win the lottery big time, and to live life without fear ( I should have said world peace, I know)

8. What is your drink of choice?  Diet Coke or water

Here are my 8 questions:
1.  What's the last item of clothing you purchased?
2.  What's your favorite TV show?
3.  What's your favorite color?
4.  How many pairs of shoes do you have?  What percentage do you wear regularly?
5.  What's your "go to" item of clothing - the one you seem to throw on time and time again?
6.  What time do you usually get up in the morning?
7.  What's your guilty pleasure?
8.  What would be your dream job?

I also was tagged by the lovely Ms. Givens over at Trend Wisely to list my 10 favorite things (in no particular order).

1. My family
2. My friends
3. Blogging and blogs
4. Shopping - anywhere, anytime and for anything
5. My crap reality TV shows
6. Magazines
7. Fashion
8. Cupcakes
9. Diet Coke
10. Social Networking (what did we do before it?)

Instead of tagging people for these last two items, I'm going to throw it out to everyone who wants to answer the questions and/or list your favorite things.  You can do it on your blog or in the comments section.  Have fun!!!

And just so you get a bit of fashion for today, here are a couple of looks from Missoni's (extremely colorful) Spring 2011 line:

Uniform Dressing 3:4

Well, it's the final week for our little black dress and oh what a month it's been (check out week 1, week 2 and week 3 if you missed them).  I'll end it out with more fun looks, the best part of this month has been seeing just how versatile this one dress can be.  Talk about bang for your buck!  Enjoy!

Stay tuned because next week begins another month's uniform!

Hunter Green + Grey Goodness

I've been seeing lots of hunter green paired with grey out and about right now and I must admit I love it!  I'm not the biggest hunter green fan, this is mostly due to the fact that this sort of green was insanely popular with the middle to low-end upholstery crowd I began my career designing for.  So much so that I could not stand to look at another navy, hunter green, and or burgundy fabric (especially plaid).  It was all too much.  I'm not sure if I will ever warm up to it in my home decor, but I'm certainly warming up to it being in my wardrobe.  Here are a couple of examples of how I would like to wear a little hunter green and grey!
