also love Freja...haven't seen recent pics of her until today..made my day- mostly because 2 nights ago i had a dream she died in my arms...she died from being too skinny, but she was ok with it.  this recent photo confirms it was just that, only a dream.



Out To Save The World

that's how wearing a trench makes me feel..like a woman on a mission.



Anthro Another Wedding

Never. My wedding was too loverly and special to try and reinvent.Yet, had bhldn, http://bhldn.com/, existed almost 3 years ago, I would have, without a doubt, worn one of their, soon to be revealed on Feb 14th, wedding gowns. I know this even if I hadn't caught a glimpse of what's to be unveiled. Anthropologie is my most favorite store. Their whimsical looks never tire and always has me at their fingertips, so eager to buy everything! I can be weak. I can be caught in forfeited moments, such as in an anthro store or visiting anthro online or when I set out a bowl of candy in my house for guests but end up being the one with the sticky fingers. Two very real moments I am guaranteed to lose all willpower thus failing to resist such temptations. Too bad its a faux pas to wear white at other people's weddings...how else can I make one of these a) an appropriate buy and b) a setting in which a wedding dress in required for those not the bride? Perhaps I'll just have to dream up these dresses to fit one of my nieces someday.



Tug of War

between staying fresh in winter and the thick air of spring/summer blend. Free People has me longing to slip into these easy breezy fabrics
and flounce around in their fun-filled store showered in candy colored fabrics


Looks Gone Right



The name's Johnny Utah!

My brother and his little family are packing up, bidding the southern California coast a fine farewell. Life was good to them. They made a many of fine memories the past 8 years in Huntington Beach, CA. I certainly enjoyed visiting and will miss them being there. Thankfully I still have my brother Dave and Ash in that territory...Although it sucks too. What was once a one stop shop to see some of my dearest and most favorite people has now created  major travel predicaments Spreading out the family across the vast plains of this country means making more of an effort to make certain to see faces in person. They are all  well worth it, plus I too need my fix of all of them. On the other side, I am thankful. My brother Greg's move to Salt Lake City, Utah means more opportunity for their sweet family and new land my feet get to explore! I can't wait. Plus, knowing Sundance Film Festival is held in Park City, Utah, promoting independent films, my most fav kind and ones I try to support, and taking in all the lovely fashion has got me all jazzed up. And that this state has more to offer than my current ignorance knowing only about Mormon culture, mountains, and SLC Punk

I have some homework to do....
Here are some pics of  stylin attendees as well as the stars themselves at Sundance.



Lets Hear it For The Boys

I typically whiz by most photos of guys' fashion...some can be a bit too fem for me to stop and hover over. Not these. These nice looking, well dressed men were spotted during Milano men's fashion week. These were my top favorite looks.



Your Body Is A Wonderland

And going through some crazy changes. Slowly transforming from the mini est of waists to a protruding ...get in my belly! No, it's not a food baby. My best girl Ashley, a.k.a Sheit, is pregnant and going to be a momma in 6 months !! Let the countdown begin. Ashley has always, since the day our friendship began in the 6th grade, had awesome style. She takes risks, tries out trends, and is far from boring. Being pregnant doesn't mean your fashion and style have to be compromised either. It's a good thing capes, tunics, flowy tops, leggings, and boyfriend t's are in style. Which means that you can probably get away wearing a majority of what's already in your closet, until the way end, when you get super huge and bloated and all puffed out. Ew.We will tackle that issue when comes our way. In the meantime let's concentrate on you being the cutest little pregnant lady ever. Here are some go-to's for you to live in for at least the next 5 months.
7 maternity jeans..come prepped for your growing belly

over sized sungies...good to have now and after baby...disguise your lack of sleepy eyes

7 maternity leggings with expandable waist

or just plain leggings will do the trick

a full length maxi..super comfy with elastic waist

a long tunic to pair with leggings to cover your belly and your bum.
american apparel will probably have all of the above.
Cheers to you my dear lady and to the new life you are about to lead.  Even though we live across the country from each other, I'm with ya the entire way.


Where The Streets Have No Name

but a ton of fancy folks. some lovely images to inspire your weekend wardrobe decisions. you don't have to go anywhere in particular to get all fancy, just whenever the mood strikes, as seen so flawlessly done below:
simple streamlined outfit paired with the red oxfords, a masculine ladylike perfect mix. one would assume such perfection would be caught in the middle of a magazine shoot...but not for this lovely lady of Florence, just out and about taking a personal day

her jacket is amazing. i love the darker brown stripe across the chest, a wonderful break of contrast. paired with maxi skirt, playing with flattering proportions. top this lovely look off by keeping fingers toasty in vintagy glam hand muff. lovely!

giovanna battaglia always looks amazing. l the mix of browns and patterns all flow together just right. head to toe, every detail accounted for without failure.

i love her; julia sarr-jamois. i've posted about her amazing hair, yet her style is always unassuming and so awesome. point proven here.

although i would never, this girl looks pretty cool, pulling off irish gone golfing mixed with a bit of andre 3000 .


Knockin Knees Like Marcie Dahlgren-Frost

oh the planning, every little detail, the long lists waiting to be checked off, a sign progress is being made, thus moving closer to the main event, closer to the purpose of what it is all really for. Weddings. Such a production, so much angst and worry. Aiming for your interpretation of absolute perfection on this single most important day of your life. Yet behind the decorations and ball room filled with special guests, the emotions, the purpose, the guarantee to one another to be the best mate and a promise to live together forever, that promise and commitment is genuine, therefore only you can own it, making your day unlike anyone else's. But, I can attest, as a loving bystander and honored guest, Scott and Jamie, you guys threw one hell of a party. We felt your vibe and felt like doing nothing else but dance and celebrate right there with ya all night long. Cheers~
