Greene Goddess- GQ UK December 2012

Ashley Greene in Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit


bikini- Michael Kors

I'm not some huge Ashley Greene fan, but I couldn't get over how HOT she looked on the cover of UK's GQ December issue. I'm loving her in the pin-up look, winged eyeliner and sex hair.

What made me write up a post about this spread was the picture of her in that Michael Kors high-waisted bikini on the car. If I were 20 lbs. lighter, I would order that swimsuit ASAP. I am completely and utterly obsessed with it.

Alon Livne SS12


After seeing all of Rumi Neely & Bryan Boy's tweets, I couldn't help be curious about what designers feature their collections at Tel Aviv Fashion Week. After looking through pictures of various collections by designers I have never heard of, there was one I was especially drawn to.




This designer was Alon Livne, a fashion designer in Israel who has been in the industry since 17-years-old. He previously worked for Roberto Cavalli in Florence and trained in London for Alexander McQueen.

In 2009, he was a contestant on a local version of Project Runway, where he won.





You can probably see a pattern in what kinds of clothes I post. I love promiscuity in pieces. I love sheerness, cut-outs and provocativity. I love the barely-there essence of all the pieces and their sensuality and femininity. 

I think it's time for Alon Livne to come to the US!

Tori Praver Beach Wedding

Tori Praver + pro-surfer hubbie, Danny Fuller

Stop NOW if you are either single, tied down to a lame-ass boyfriend or just a hopeless romantic. These pictures are just going to make you go, "awww..." and result in immediate unhappiness over your now seemingly inadequate love life.

Tori Praver, model/bikini designer, made my heart melt in these photos with her pro surfer hunk, Danny Fuller.

This Pinterest worthy wedding-inspired photoshoot makes me want to fall in love, adopt a puppy and beach bum it for the rest of my life.... And now that I've realized that won't happen anytime soon, I'm going to sulk and hit up a tub of ice cream instead.




Check out Tori's swimwear line here!

I Ain't Sayin' She a Gold Digger...-Balmain RTW 2010


Balmain RTW 2010 Collection
 Now I ain't sayin' she a gold digger 
But she ain't messin' wit no broke nigga
-Kanye West

And Kanye's right- these dresses definitely don't look like they belong to any woman messing with a broke nigga.

I am OBSESSED with this whole collection. I wanted to include every look from this line, but I decided to just share (more than) a few of my favorites. As you can probably tell from plenty of my previous posts, I love the sheen and boldness of a metallic piece. Christophe Decarnin, former designer of Balmain, undoubtedly knew exactly how to incorporate gold into his collection.

Autumn is upon us, which means it is time to put the neons and bright colors away, and opt for more appropriate colors for this season. When I think of Autumn, I think of rich, deep hues of reds, oranges, browns and mustards. However, I think gold is a perfect color for this season- especially for those who love to stand out!

Balmain RTW 2012
I've been dying over Balmain ever since Selena Gomez's cover on Elle Magazine, as I have written about before. But it wasn't until Zoe Saldana's red carpet premiere of Colombiana in that iconic Balmain dress, that I decided to probe more into Balmain's past collections. Even with Decarnin gone, Balmain still knows how to create the most beautiful clothes.

Balmain Resort 2012
It's almost impossible to decide which look is my favorite. Still, I would have to say the mini dress on the bottom left is the one I'd want if I had to choose just one. What's your favorite?

Mixing Business with Pleasure- BCBG Max Azria Resort 2013




It's obvious that BCBG Max Azria's Resort 2013 line is intended for upscale women who are vacationing away from their time-consuming careers, as you can see by the bold colors and loud prints. However, I definitely see an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. 

While many of the other pieces in this collection are absolutely perfect to lounge and relax in, I personally would wear many of these looks in the office (maybe except the cut-out blue number). Blazers, dresses with nice, clean cuts and cool trousers are certainly go-to's when it comes to office wear. The colorful patterns, bright pops of neon and studs, though, give boring old office wear an edge.

Don't just be the hardest working employee in your workspace, but the best-dressed one, too!

Blonds or Brunettes?- The Blonds Spring 2013




Ok, so during my hospital visit after my car accident, the doctors drugged me out on morphine. Morphine is a narcotic drug that helps with severe pain and often times, it makes you hallucinate. 

For example, my friend Erin sees a yellow wallpaper border on in the rooms. On that yellow border, a big, black man sits in a beach chair with a yellow umbrella and points and laughs at her.

In my experience, as the doctors were working on me, I felt no pain but was fully aware that I was in the hospital. At the same time though, it was like I was transported to another world. While I was sitting on the hospital bed, I was, in my head, also in a sort of candy land world. I was running through pink, cotton candy fields in one scene, and then climbing huge dice cubes in another.

Now, many of you are probably wondering what the fuck this has to do with The Blonds fashion show. After I saw this line in State of Style on the Style. network, I realized that if I were able to wear anything in my morphine-induced candy land world, I would want to wear the collection by The Blonds! I'm absolutely obsessed with anything rhinestoned, crystal-encrusted and glittery.

The Blonds pieces look like something that belongs in a Katy Perry music video or concert show. For me though, it is something I would definitely rock in my very own candy land world.
