Digging up Kylie Minogue’s old videos on Youtube today,   I was reminded of how much I love the video for Slow.  All the colors, hot bodies and Kylie’s red lips.  It’s so fresh right now with all the colorful frocks from Gucci, YSL, even Zara at the moment.  The trend is also dead on for face and nails.  Images via FGR.

Watch it and you’ll be bidding summer a warm vibrant welcome…if only all swimming holes were so sultry.


Third Date with Willard.

I’m obsessing over the Fox Dress from Deyrolle + OC.  This is how I’d rock it on my fantasy date with Willard. We could take a stroll with Ben through a field…

Two of my favorite shows so far are Vena Cava and Band of Outsiders.

I’m loving on two small touches that each brought with them.

Vena Cava – the silver and gold modern plate necklaces caught my fancy.

So modern and so not in my normal repertoire.

I was inspired to add something new, so I found this lovely girl on Etsy for a solid $19.

Band of Outsiders – boots with RED laces.  Rugged red laces.

There are tons of options online, as well as at your local JCrew men’s dept.  All for a solid $4.

Both of these items will spruce up my look.  My black stand-by lace up boots will get a nice lift and my neck will have some fun.

It’s been a little since I can really remember coveting an entire collection from just one designer.  I think of tom ford or chanel…of course at times it’s been marc jacobs…stella mccartney, chloe.

currently I’d sell off my first-born for everything from the miu miu spring/summer 2010 collection.  well, not really, but I’d come pretty close before my conscience would sink in.

if you’d described to me that there were aspects of figure skating elements and cat prints involved, I would’ve thunk you crazy…but that’s just exactly what it is…and I HEART IT ALL.

Alison Lewis always has the best videos each collection.  The last one consisted of running around in pretty under garments, pretty dresses, vintage luggage & chugging champagne out of the bottle.

the latest is set at the fair, summer at its peak, cute light dresses and lots of color…oh and vampire teeth!  hooray!

check out the video here. click on video.

my favorite thing about Nine.

Marion Cotillard is on the more elusive side unless she’s posing on a red carpet.  I tried to dig up as many photos of her in more casual attire…b/c I just love her relaxed, functional style.  I’m happy to see she is never without a propper topper AND diggin her with cute bf Guillaume Canet.  Towards the end here…I had to throw in some glammed up Marion.
