prep time.

am i the only one going back to the days of hard-core... preppiness?

i hope so, because then when i save enough to buy a ralph crested wool blazer, there'll still be a few left in my size.

but seriously. lately, my eye has been glued to light blazers, crisp seersucker dresses, argyle cashmere cardigans, loosely cuffed slacks, and loafers. its all so adorable and crisp and bright and clean. and it feels so great after months of pashminas and jewel tones to be able to don a thin striped blouse and pencil skirt with pride. (a la j. crew, below)

stretch sateen pencil skirt, $88
striped 120s kensington shirt, $68

why, why, why?

why must someone have to pay when they take two days off of school? i have, today alone, two tests to take after school. pity me.
but for now, enjoy diane von furstenberg's 2008 ad campaign. i absolutely love it.

the princesses' inspiration

lately, we'vebeen inspired by the new (and not so new) collections from our favorite designers.
B has been intrigued by jovovich-hawk and erin fetherston. they are both so girly and inspired by love. fetherston was acutally inspired by juliet, as in romeo and juliet for her recent line at fashion week (according to vogue tv). so sit back, relax, and fall in love.

so mod and so wearable! that color scheme is muted, but still vibrant because of the contrast between the black tights and the patterned dress.

EDGY. RUFFLES. what more do you need?

i think it is so difficult to put together a black ensemble and make it not look too dark or too gothic, but jovovich-hawk perfected the black european look with elegance.

although their new line is amazing, i think their best line was their spring 2007 line.

this is my absolute favorite ensemble! its so girly, and so wearable it makes me want to cry. its so ahead of the times... this is something i'd wear now and forever more.

again. so feminine.

my second favorite outfit:it really carries itself with minimal details.

you can really see the juliet inspiration in some of this ensembles.

the color is breathtaking. it flows and glows. the contrast between the color of the dress and the black tights is stunning.

can you see the juliet inspiration? i am in love with the headpiece.

i love how fresh this ensemble looks! the tights pop brightly against the muted pallete of the floral dress.

this reminds me of that haunting lanvin ad, but more youthful and wearable.
