What do you think?

of my new school bag?
The straps are longer than they appear...
It's from Liz Clairborne,I bought it from TJ Maxx(you should go).Guess how much it was?only $29.Talk about a bargain!It's a heritage mosaic.I was drawn to it because it's gorgeous,duh,and it was simple and classy.It can go with anything,you can never go wrong with a black handbag.Do you love it or do you love it?

Rate on a scale from 1-10...

First off, I love her hair and makeup.It's very retro and classy.I must admit the plaid pants have grown on me.I love them but, I could never pull them off.I don't like the gingham scarf.It doesn't flow with her other garments.Also the clunky platforms made me cringe.What made these shoes popular in the 90s?!I think classic black pumps would make the outfit complete.I'm on the fence about the bag.

Minus 2 for the shoes and scarf and .5 for the purse.So I'll give this outfit a 7.5.

Would you wear these trends?

Gray T-shirt Dresses

Diane Kruger, Kristin Cavallari and Rachel Bilson
From the red carpet to the streets, these comfy jersey dresses get a major boost from belts and scarves.Keep it loose and flowy or it gets t-a-c-k-y!

Baggy Jeans

Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham and Sarah Jessica Parker
Leave to the "gangstas".

Lace rompers

Shenae Grimes,Rihanna and Thandie Newton

Scarves on purses

Heidi Montag, Jennifer Aniston and Eva Longoria Parker
Well,it's one way to add pizazz to a boring purse.

Checkered Shirts

Ashlee Simpson,Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Conrad
Gingham gets a cool update with open necklines, colored backgrounds and skinny jean bottoms.
I would wear gray t-shirt dresses,checkered shirts(I already do).I must confess I did the whole scarf on a boring purse thing in '05!
Ah,I feel better.

Is Fall here yet?

I know some of you are holding onto summer for as long as you possibly can.But for the others who despise the sun&heat.Here's a couple of street style pictures to get your fall look started.










I NEED boots like this.

September Vogue-Keira Knightley is the cover girl...

It's a weird pic,right?
Keira Knightley is the cover girl of the much anticipated September fall issue For Vogue.The September Fall Issue is the magazine to pick up.It's jam packed with runway looks,trends and lovely interview with Miss Knightley.The cover headline reads that Keira is a “fashion star, pirate queen, history’s sexiest Duchess.” Her new film The Duchess actually opens in the UK on September 5 and in limited release in the USA on September 19.

The 23-year-old British actress last appeared on the June 2007 cover, which was the second-lowest seller of that half of the year. It sold a mere 405,000 copies.

Other September cover girls include Penelope Cruz does Glamour, Jessica Simpson does Elle, Blake Lively does Cosmopolitan, and Vanessa Hudgens does Teen Vogue.

The Girl of the week...


Name: Rhiannon
Age: 15, 16 soon!!!!

Where are you from: West Palm Beach, FL

Describe your style in three words: anything and everything
Can I exceed three words? My style is everything, every word of the day I have ever received via email, every celebrity picture I have seen, every picture I have taken, every art museum I have been to, NYC, Miami. I will find something at a store and even though I know nothing matches with it now, it will one day be the final piece to a perfect outfit. I am grunge, girly, comfortable, crazy, boring, classy, everything.

Quote to Live by: "I always tell the girls, never take it seriously. If you never take it seriously then you never get hurt. If you never get hurt, then you always have fun, and if you ever get lonely you can go to the record store and visit your friends. - Penny Lane, Almost Famous

Fashion is.... an art, a form of expression.
Your style inspiration/icon: Probably Jackie Kennedy Onassis. She was so classy and well put together and just amazing. Jane Asher too, and most 60s, 80s fashion icons. Now a days I like to look towards the Olsen twins, Keira Knightley, and Rachel Bilson for inspiration.

Your favorite piece is... my white v-neck, it ties into everything! I have at least five just in case!

What are your TOP 3 spring/summer must haves? Cute sandals (especially gladiators), light summer dress with a belt around the middle, can i add a gigantic purse to keep everything in. who knows when we are going to the beach!!!

Any shout-outs? Florida

What do you think about Rhiannon's casual yet trendy style?
Sound off!x
Congrats Rhiannon!
