Rock the Mens-Wear and Yet Embrace Your Girly Side



Hello girls! I was recently checking out www.elle.com and came across a few good finds. Have you seen Jamie King in any magazine spreads for a while? I know I haven't seen this model turned actress do any fashion spreads for quite some time. So I thought I would show you a few of the pictures from her menswear-inspired photo shoot from EllE

What do you think?


I also noticed they had an article about how to dress like a Gossip Girl (the college years) Just a glimpse into what their style is going to be this season was great! Don't these girls look amazing??







I just wanted to highlight a few items that Elle suggested. These are the ones that really captivated my attention.

First this Valentino tote! Isn't this sparkly goodness just fabulous? Price tag: $4,695! So this won't be a purchase this blogger will be making any time soon, but a girl can dream, can't she?


Next, are these cute Chloe suede lace-up ankle boots. Price tag: $695! Would you spend that kind of money on shoes? I couldn't let myself to that!! And say that I had, I don't think I would ever wear them, in fear that I would ruin them some how, and then all that money would be down the drain.....lol

This next one, is from Anna Sui, it's a playsuit. Price tag: $515 I thought this was pretty and fun, this one was under Serena's wardrobe ideas.




I also wanted to mention Lady Gaga's outfit below. Besides the sunglasses, Her whole outfit is from Marc Jacobs 2010 collection. Sunglasses are from Alexander Wang. Although I wouldn't wear that much ruffles this outfit isn't so bad, in fact it's tame in comparison to what she normally puts together. I like the golds shades!





Well, I better get going for today, believe it or not I really am trying to keep this blog updated, but sadly I can't find too much free time to do so! But again, I will try to do better! I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful day!

LOVE the How to Dress Like a Gossip Girl (the College Years) feature. Though I really can't see it being easy to wear heels while strolling about campus. The Anna Sui playsuit is divine. Really, she can do no wrong! :)

I love the Jamie King pictures. Love the way the mens wear was put together. Wearing heels on campus... I wish I could, but I always regret half way going to school and have hard time the rest of the day. I totally understand about not having time. but I enjoyed your post!!

I can't wait to read the How To Dress Like A Gossip Girl. I haven't seen the new season yet (it starts next week for me), but I can't wait to see what all the girls are going to be wearing.

i loved the editorial and also when girls dress a bit boy-like with femenine touches, it's all about androginy.


about gossip girl...it's what i love most about the show (and blair/chuck relationship) the ouftis and amazing shoes they get to wear.
