Party in the NYC.



If you're a sensible human being, you're probably already following me on Instagram or Twitter... Or if you're one of the lucky 400, my friend on Facebook and already know that I'm in New York City interning for the summer for a PR firm as a "Vera Wang/Joe Fresh Intern".

To be honest, the pictures above are a lie. I do not <3 NY. When I got here, I kind of hated it, actually. The subway system, walking in the wrong direction, the excruciating heat or the endless downpour of rain-- those are some of the things that make it in my WHAT THE EFF, NEW YORK list.

However, when my 2 best friends, Miranda and Sam came to visit, we did all the touristy shit and wearing those tacky, nasty I <3 NY 4 for $5 t-shirts was one of them... except we made it look much, much better.

Sam had hers cut into a crop top & paired it with a pair of my Levi's high-waisted cut-off denim shorts. I cut mine into a low side muscle-tee and paired it with a blue lace bandeau top & my favorite studded cut-off denim shorts. Miranda cut hers into an off-the-shoulder fringed top with her cut-off True Religion denim shorts. All of us paired our ensembles with our matching Jeffrey Campbell glitter Litas.

While NYC might not be my favorite city in the world, it definitely is a picture-worthy place.

Gucci Premier's Blake Lively


If you haven't already heard, Gucci just announced that they have a new perfume- Gucci Premier and Gossip Girl's Blake Lively is the flawless face that represents it. I've known this for a couple weeks now but I kept my little mouth shut. :)

Here are some pictures of her in the latest Marie Claire issue:





I hate to say it, but she is literally perfect. She is tall, has legs that go on for miles, shacks up with Ryan freakin' Reynolds, and just received the whole effing spring collection of Christian Louboutin's latest line. Kill me. 

Because of her character as Serena Van Der Woodsen (I read all the Gossip Girl books & I have always been TEAM BLAIR), I have a strong dislike towards her... but more in a I-Wish-I-Was-Her torturous envy rather than She's-An-Ugly-Betch hatred. 

Ugh- I can't take it. I want a body transplant.

Let's all take a moment of silence for Selena Gomez's innocence. She is sooo not a Disney poptart anymore. She looks absolutely gorgeous and stunning and sexy and hot and grown-up. I can't take it. A fellow intern of mine, Pedro, commented about it saying: "She looks a little Mexican, though... No?" Selena definitely does- but in a good way. She's one of the only Disney stars that doesn't make me want to rip my eyes and ears out for so I love it.

I've already written about Dolce & Gabbana's embellished mesh corsets numerous times (once on its own and once in a Mila Kunis post), so instead I'm going to comment on the Bailmain embellished lambskin top. It is simply to die for and if I had it, I wouldn't ever take it off. And seriously- her super suggestive pose in the Vera Wang bra?! No wonder there is "one less lonely girl" (Justin Bieber reference. I had to.)

Heavy Metal

 
 
 

I. am. in. love. -- with everything in this Cosmopolitan spread in their July 2012 issue. If you've read any of my other posts, I am in complete awe of anything metallic. Whether it is a crop top, shorts or bolero, anything with sequins, shiny, metallic, leather or beading makes anything instantly glamorous. The Moschino dress in the 2nd photo is so Joan of Arc meets high fashion. The gold plating is gorgeous and makes me want to be my own knight in shining armor. I am seriously mad over metallics and am disappointed in myself that I hardly have any in my own closet. I'll have to keep this in mind when I leave to New York tomorrow night for the next couple months. Whoever the stylist was for this shoot- thumbs up.

Charlize Theron as Ravenna in Snow White & the Huntsman


Charlize Theron is an effing goddess. I just watched Snow White and the Huntsman and I could not prevent myself from salivating every time Charlize Theron as Ravenna came onto the screen. She is so fierce, so bad-ass, so beautiful. They should have called the movie Queen Ravenna because that is who stole the entire show. I'm not going to even go into her impeccable acting, as that is not my forte. Just as amazing as her acting, though, were her costumes. Holy. Shit. They were gorgeous. I could barely follow the storyline and plot because I was so mesmerized by the intricate costumes.












If you have any sense of what is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, you probably have been holding your breath for the past couple minutes while scrolling through these pictures. Like... right?!? Colleen Atwood, the designer of these costumes (and also a 9-time Academy Award nominee for costume design) is a mother effing genius. If I looked 1/10 as good as Charlize Theron does in the movie (and in real life), I would sacrifice the souls of young women in order to maintain immortality and beauty and use my looks to manipulate men into acquiring a kingdom, too. Except... If I were Queen Ravenna, I sure as hell would not have Kristen Stewart (Snow White) get away. At the end of the movie, I for sure would have had that pasty girl's heart in my hand.
