Caution: Curves Ahead

V Magazine released an exclusive preview of their Spring 2010 Preview Issue to www.models.com, which will hit newsstands on January 14, 2010.

The first editorial, photographed by Terry Richards,
focused on the idea of "One Size Fits All"
by creating similar compositions of an average sized model + a heavier-set model.

Their second editorial, "Curves Ahead" by Solve Sundsbo,
is completely focused on curvy, plus-size models.
Take a look + tell me what you think!

new purchases

I went to the mail today and found some cute things at Forever 21!
I normally hate shopping there because once I get home,
I hate everything I bought...
but today I was rather pleased with my purchases!

studded suedette flats, $14.80

beaded pleather vest, $27.80

striped double knit skirt, $8.50
The skirt I got in black, with white stripes

Tonight, I'm going to dinner with my dad + sister
at Steven Starr's mexican restaurant, El Vez,
in Philadelphia.
I love their food!

I'm going to wear my new striped skirt with polka dot tights,
leather moto boots, and my rather-recently purchases
electric blue Kimberly Taylor silk "Renna V-Neck" from shopbop.com!
It looks so cute!
I want to post a pic, but my camera is terrible with details,
so it does my outfit no justice! =[

I also order the plaid Mackage "Aura" Jacket from shopbop.com
at 30% off, so it should be arriving soon!
I'm so glad that I got it because it has been on
the back of my mind for months now!
I wish I came today, so I could wear it to New York City
tomorrow since it's officially FREEZING out!!
Ahh I hate the cold



My Christmas wishlist

Merry Christmas Eve and happy holidays!
I hope everyone gets what they've been hoping for this year :)
Here's a little glimpse of my wishlist for the upcoming season...

As much as I love the luxurious furs + coats, knee-high boots, and
anything black, leather, or studded from Fall/Winter 09,
I just can't wait to shop for Spring/Summer 2010!

After seeing W's editorial and reading WWD this week,
I noticed that the upcoming season's fashion + accessory trends
consist of soft, feminine pastels
that are saturated with an edgy vibe.
This is a continuation of the the edgy rocker look
that was prevalent this fall.
I'm very excited for spring, particularly because this
rough trend is still going to be powerful
during the lighter summer days.
These following items (plus a great face peel to get rid of all that dry winter skin!), I think,
are great pieces for spring
because they can spruce up any pretty outfit with a edgy touch!

Every story has an ending...

...but in life, every ending is just a new beginning
Sadly, today, Brittany Murphy suffered cardiac arrest and past away
at the age of 32.
I'm so upset! She was so sweet and a good actress.
Ahh, I can't believe it!

calling all angels

So a couple weeks ago was the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show, my favorite thing
to start the holiday season!

If you sadly missed the energizing + highly animated show, 
here is an assortment of photographs
of the heavenly gorgeous angels!
