Amelie is by far one of my favorite movies of all time. I've been having it play in the background all weekend because it just makes me so happy. Everything about it just warms my heart. If you haven't seen it, I hope you go on over to Hulu and watch it (for free!). The soundtrack is absolutely beautiful as well. I love listening to it while it's snowing or raining outside!!

nyfw - jason wu

I've been following NYFW like a hawk now that I have this wonderful app on my iPhone called FLIP. One of my favorite collections so far was by the phenomenal Jason Wu. The bold colors and cuts were so beautiful and the silhouettes were so glamorous yet tough.  I know these days liking fur is such a faux pas, but I love it personally. Yes, I completely understand all the negativity that comes from it and how "wrong" it could be but in fashion, it adds such an elegance and beauty. One of my favorite looks in this collection has to be the maroon coat trimmed with fur. The main reason I think I loved all the looks was because they were tough and hard but at the same time, very lustful and elegant.

Have you been following nyfw?

My darling friend Dani's apartment reminds me of a cute vintage boutique! She moved to this beautiful studio and I love what she did with the space. I love the little treasures she has, the postcards, the scarves, jewelry, and the body form & mannequin head she has! It feels like you're stepping into a pretty store!!
