what shall I wear today: halloween edition

I decided this year to dress up as a deer, and my boyfriend was a hunter. It was pretty cute and I thought it was a creative idea, considering I didn't see any other deers roaming around!

Today I am wearing:
H&M corset dress
Hand-made necklaces
Vintage fur jacket
Hand-made antlers

To tell you the truth. I was really inspired by Keith Bryce's photo shoot using antlers. It was in one of my picture folders kicking around and looking through the photos for inspiration I knew that's exactly what I wanted to be! <3

happy halloween!

Hope you little monsters are having a Happy Halloweekend filled with parties and pumpkin carving like mine! Of course I made a Hello Kitty one. Wouldn't have it any other way. <3

featured designers: Le Catogan

Going onto the webpage I fell in love. It explains what Le Catogan really means. It is obviously French, but it has history. This was the way a 17th century general fastened his hair with a ribbon. Since 1987, it has represented the intricate, delicate quality and workmanship of handmade head pieces. Seriously. I'm in love. <3

Harper Bazaar's book of fashion

Yum! I would love to get my hands on this book. It is Harper's Bazaar Fashion: Your Guide to Personal Style. It includes fashionista's and fashionisto's input from DvF, John Galliano and more. Also there will be featured quotes and illustrations from Karl Lagerfeld, Vera Wang and Michael Kors to name a few. The book comes out November 2! So next week! Here are some personal quotes from Frida Giannini and Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana.

"Personal style is about taking classic pieces and reinterpreting them to make them your own. A special ocelot-print coat and chic minibag, for example, can transform a tailored pair of jeans into something uniquely personal."- Frida Giannini

"Style is personality. It's having the ability to look at things beyond fashion and the self-confidence to transform even the simplest thing into something special. It is a natural quality you cannot learn and there are no rules to follow."- Domenico Dolce

Take it from the best! <3

photoshoot for the mood: Anja x Muse

Here's a little photo shoot for your Halloween weekend! Anja Rubik in Muse Magazine was shot by Solve Sundsbo. With her big hair and her simple Lady Gaga costuming, she looks like the Bride of Frankenstein in a very editorial, chic way. The veil, the smoke and the hair really do it. <3

Leighton Meester x Marie Claire UK

Leighton Meester is on Marie Claire UK December issue. Her photos inside feature various hairdos in a sequence of beauty shots. She is such a classic beauty that girl! <3

say goodbye to The City

Whitney Port told Ryan Seacrest that there will no longer be the reality show, The City. She says, "As of right now it doesn't really look like we're doing it anymore," said the fashion designer. As for possibility of moving the show from MTV to another network, Port added, "No, at this point it's not."

There wasn't even really a finale! Kind of choked. I loved watching it for Olivia Palermo's style! MTV hasn't confirmed anything, but it doesn't look like the show will go on. <3

rumour has it: Katy Perry's wedding dress

Katy Perry and Russell Brand are officially married and she wore an Elie Saab dress like the one above (or so it's believed). The two got married in India. They had a Bollywood banquet featuring camels, horses and a baby elephant in their wedding procession! Can't wait to see the real pics! <3

song of the day: Release Me

I was watching 90210 and came across this amazing all girl totally mod band. They have such an amazing retro feel from their style to their music. I absolutely am in love with them! This is more of an acoustic version but it's still pretty good. New band love! <3

Dita von Teese x Grazia

I adore these pictures with Dita von Teese, photographed by Richard Bernardin and styled by Alexandra Bernard. She has such classic beauty with her pin-up style. This was in the September issue of Grazia Italy. So sultry. <3

Chloe's boo boo

Love Chloe, Chloe's latest fragrance has created quite a stir amongst the ads. The model, Raquel Zimmerman is wearing an Yves Saint Laurent belt rather than a Chloe belt! Why!? Why would the stylist do this, playing fashion houses against each other! <3

H&M x Lanvin part III

Another ad has been released for H&M & Lanvin's collection!! Much more colourful than the LBDs. <3

11 year old fashion designer

Seriously, this is crazy! Cecilia Cassini designs clothes for the stars all at the age of 11. She's not even in her teens! She was on the Nate Berkius show showing off a collection inspired by a room. Check out the vid. It's a must. <3

JLo for Gucci

Jennifer Lopez and her children Max and Emme are the stars for Gucci's new children's collection which hit the stores next month. Gucci donated $1 million to UNICEF's Schools for Africa and $50,000 to Maribel Initiative, JLo's charity. <3

H&M x Lanvin part II

I mentioned a while back that H&M and Lanvin (one of my all time favourite designers) are teaming up. Well one little ad has been released, and I think these LBD's (little black dresses) are worth standing in line for... NOW that is! Just a reminder, they will go on sale November 23 but will be revealed November 2! <3

Vera Wang's Lavendar Label Footwear Fall 2010

It has been released and I already want those thigh high Vicky boots and those jeweled Gillian flats! <3

Rachel Zoe preggers

After the speculation of Rachel Zoe being pregnant, and her show with all the people surrounding her routing for her to have a baby, her brother-in-law Isaac Shachar says to InTouch "We waited for so long". So obviously that means she is! At least she will have someone to give her vintage to (if it's a girl). <3

inside Coco and James' apartment

Vogue went into James and Coco's two bedroom apartment in Gramercy Park, Manhattan and interviewed them about the history of their decor and styling. I loved the photos and of course Coco's little comments behind each one.

She had a company to build her closet because she wanted it to include drawers for jew
elry, shoes, make-up and lots of room for clothes. She admits though, her clothes have overflowed her dream closet. Look at all her YSL and Rimmel products! I guess that's what you get for being the face for them!

Inside the closet she explains her,
closet is full of a lot of vintage pieces, and everything is very random. I have Tudor-era clothes mixed in with pieces from the 1920s and 1940s.”

I love the YSL piggy bank! It looks like a purse but reads, "you've saved la rent"!

I love this couple. They seem so genuine. <3
