Working at a job that requires me to be online all day is sometimes both a blessing and a curse. Curse more often than not, but surfing through blogs all day can be beneficial in the sense that I can see what people are talking about. And, of course, add to my ever-growing wish list. Here’s what I’ve picked up lately.

Cosmic:

On everything from shoes to nails to make up the galaxy seems to be on everyone’s mind and I have to say I’m loving it! Cosmic prints have been popping up on clothing for a while now, but lately I’ve been seeing it expand to everything. Cosmic nail art is also huge and if I painted my nails more often (or was any good at doing my nails) I’d jump on that band wagon too. Cosmic prints in fashion is something I’m constantly adding to my wish list, but sometimes it’s hard to do a cosmic print without looking too wizzard-y. Cosmic print leggings are one way. I’ve had my eye on these galaxy print leggings for some time now.

Oh these shoes. I saw these cosmic wedges over the summer and have been drooling over then ever since. Too bad they’re sold out because I would not even blink before ordering hand painted galaxy wedges.

Egyptian:

Egyptian style, Egyptian inspired fashion, and Egyptian themed I have been spotting with my keen little eye all over the interwebs. Specifically in jewelry, I’ve been going ga ga over Egyptian inspired necklaces.

The 60s:

If the runways shows for the Spring ready-to-wear collections showed me anything it’s that the obsession with the 70s is over and we’ve reverted to a 60s style that is completely classic with a touch of bohemian. A little more Mod and a little less Madmen.

So there it is, you know what I’ll be strutting my stuff in come this Spring. A tip? No matter how “in” the 60s are, stay away from go-go boots. That’s just something that needs to stay dead.

Until next time!

Happy Halloween!

It’s finally here! My favorite holiday. I’m sure you’ve already done all your celebrating over the weekend, but here at my office we’re having a little Halloween costume contest and munching on candy still. So in the spirit of Halloween I decided to do a little post about one of my favorite Halloween themes and fashion motifs: skulls! Yup, you can be scary and trendy at the same time! Bet you didn’t realize that.

Here are some cool fashion pieces I found, mind you, some of them are a few years old, but still fun on a day like today!


I love these shots, so elegant and yet mad scientist at the same time.

 Of course this post would not be complete without these Alexander McQueen clutches, or without Alexander McQueen period, but I’ve seen about a million DIY’s for this clutch so here it is.

I love the idea of these more than I love the shoes themselves, but there’s gotta be a better version of these out there somewhere. If you find them, tell me. I will most likely own a similar pair before I die.

Now if you don’t have a thousand dollars to spend on a clutch. Another great source of some really awesome and original pieces is Etsy! Some of my skull accessories:

Well, now that I’ve sufficiently terrified all of you, I can call it a day. Hope you all have a great Halloween and eat enough candy to make your teeth fall out!
