Nasty Gal December 2011 Lookbook

Come spring, I will LIVE in this outfit on the right.

Purple pants are the perfect pop of color during the colder months.

So eighties.

Cannot get enough of this outfit.

Givenchy Spring 2012 RTW

A great change if you're looking for something other than pastels and brights for spring. Solid white, black, military green, metallic silver, and nude sequins. Thus is this collection. Fierce.

Jill Stuart Spring 2012 RTW

The colors in this collection are so quintessentially spring! I'm so impressed with the bright oranges and the salmon colors, can't wait to experiment!

Never Gets Old

I'm instantly happy when I hear this song, no matter where I am or what I'm doing. Reminds me of the 90s too...ah childhood.

Harper's Bazaar Russia Janurary 2012

Love this spread, it's so posh and graceful. Kate Beckinsale looks like a young lady-in-training. Photography by Katie Bleacher and Dean Everard and styling by Kira Shtranikh and Natalia Alaverdian. I will never cease to adore class and femininity. красивая.

Gisele for Versace S/S 2012

They really need to release more images from this collection. So fierce. Nice to see that my all-white obsession from this past summer is still fair game for the next! I love me some white.

Currently Obsessed With: Plum Lips

Why there aren't more people trying this trend is beyond me. I guess it's not for the plain-janes of the world, but that's precisely why I love it so much. The plum lip is a statement like no other, even more daring than the red lip in my opinion. Also, it works great for the cold months. So, be daring and take a chance. Estee Lauder and Yves Saint Laurent both make awesome plum lipsticks. Try some on during your next trip to Sephora! You won't be dissapointed.

Scarlett Johansson looks great in plum lips for her D&G ad.

Megan Fox

Miranda Kerr

Ashley Olsen makes the plum lip mature and lady-like with jewels and lace.

Rihanna somehow makes it work with an all-black ensemble and shades.

Harper's Bazaar Spain January 2012

Candice Swanepoel, you could not have made this cover any more sexy. Wow. So in love with this pic, it's so powerful and glamorous. She's rockin' Balmain like nobody's business and letting the bra (which matches the heels) peek through. Her pose and facial expressions just exude power and determination. Iconic. Photographed by Koray Birand.

High Angels

The photography work for this spread was so fantastic, I just had to post it and share! So artistic and ethereal. I usually don't like closeups for high fashion, but these just work. I'm so borrowing some of these makeup techniques to wear for the holidays and all winter long!

Knuckle rings are everywhere.

Love this. It's like she's a fallen angel that's maintained her halo.

This makeup is gorgeous.

Cameo Lover

A friend introduced me to this artist today. LOVE this song (even better than the vid, in my opinion). Her music has a holiday-jingle feel to it, which makes it perfect for the next few weeks!

Go hard or go home

I've been working out to this song all week. SO appropriate for the type of mindset everyone should adopt at the gym: go hard or go home! Stop taking up space if you're not going to do work!

The Suite Life

This spread makes me so happy. I love how there is an element of glamour and comfort in every picture. I can't wait to be done with finals so I can finally start enjoying the holidays. I'd be happy to rock any one of the dresses in these spread at holiday parties! Photography by Hasse Nielsen and styling by Sassie Bare for Cover Magazine #72. Images via FGR.

Glamour = sequin dress
Comfort = chaise

Again, the dress provides the glamour and contrasts the deep, rich color of the magenta rug.

The juxtaposition of elegance and youth also makes this spread amazing. Love.
