watercolor paris

Shoes: Nine West
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Sunnies: Prada

I'm not sure what is on this graphic tee, but I LOVE, LOVE it. It reminds me of a watery version of Paris or an equal caliber city. It's so romantic and troubled at the same time.

on a clear day

Striped tunic: American Apparel
Leggings: American Apparel
Chelsea boots: Urban Outfitters
Skull scarf: Alexander McQueen

This is what over-editing does to a photo. Sorry so blurry. I love playing with the effects on different photo editing apps. Sadly, this was the last "cool" day for a long time. I don't mind summer, but I am definitely counting the days until fall.

moody chanel

Sweatshirt: American Apparel
Studded shorts: BDG
Chelsea boots: Urban Outfitters
Bag: Chanel

I absolutely love Snapseed for the iPhone. It makes my pictures look extra grungy and brooding. This picture was taken outside of a grocery store, but it looks like an amazing run-down building.

best dressed: cfda

The CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) awards were earlier this week, and of course, the most exciting part was seeing what the attendees were wearing. Overall, I wanted to see more drama and more risk-taking, especially given the lineup of fashion all-stars. But there were some absolutely STUNNING looks from the evening, and I've narrowed down my favorites.

Joan Smalls in Michael Kors

My absolute favorite look of the night. Model Joan Smalls looks absolutely killer in a fresh, simple high-low dress with beautiful gold accessories to top it off. She looked like a Calvin Klein ad from the '90s. Simple and gorgeous.

Arizona Muse in Diane von Furstenberg

I love the unexpected element of the high boots with the mini dress. It's chic and very mod. 

Jessica Chastain in Prabal Gurung

Of course I had to pick Miss Babecity herself, Jessica Chastain. The always-gorgeous actress glittered in a shimmery dress with a cape and gold heels. I didn't get the best picture of her face, but her makeup was absolutely flawless as well.

Zoe Saldana in Prabal Gurung

Another knockout in Prabal Gurung. This dress was made for Zoe. She looks so high-fashion and insanely beautiful. 

Rachel Zoe in Rachel Zoe :)

The glamorous, exuberant Rachel Zoe shimmered and shined in a sequined gown designed by her. I would've expected nothing more from the always-fabulous designer. 

Jessica Pare in Jason Wu

The lovely actress was simple and fun in this electric pink and lace dress. I love the collar and the hair is perfect with it. 

The Olsen twins with Lauren Hutton

The three people that define personal style and effortless chic posed together in very different, but amazing looks. Hutton was cool and relaxed in a crisp white suit, while Mary-Kate (left) and Ashley (right) wore their designs for The Row.

sun settings

Boyfriend shorts: BDG
Necklace: House of Harlow 1960
Spiked 'Beatrix' flats: Sam Edelman
Round sunnies: Prada

It was a very lazy day of lots of sleep and no makeup. The giant Prada sunnies make up for a lack of mascara though. This look was tweeted and favorited by House of Harlow! Then they proceeded to start following me. Super awesome! Truly an honor, as I love HOH.
