Darlings, this post is like a library book…way past overdue. And I’m not going to address the elevator scandal overshadowing the fashion because I’ve heard about the Beygency. The theme of this year’s Met Gala 2014, was a tribute to Charles James, who according to WWD is “America’s best-known couturier.” This being the case, you would expect a lot of classic, opulent and elegant ball gowns of the socialite variety.
While I don’t know if they necessarily evoke the theme of this year’s event, these are my faves. There are a lot of crop top combinations and slinky silhouettes which is très 90′s. Enjoy!
I have been championing the maxi length and crop top/bustier combo for a while now. I think it’s going to hit mainstream this year. (fashion prediction) TRUST.

You know how you see women wearing running shoes en route to work, then changing to high heels? Promise me, you’ll never be that woman. God invented ballet flats for a reason. And this season, the D’Orsay flat is hitting the mainstream.
This style of shoe is named after Count Alfred d’Orsay, a 19th Century gentleman about town and an artist friend of Lord Byron. The cut-out sides were introduced to accommodate wider feet but this style has been widely adopted in women’s footwear. Made with a vamp that curves around closely to the foot, exposing the instep (ahem shoe porn). While we see this a lot in high heels, last season Jenni Kayne‘s version of the D’Orsay flat has made this one beloved look to watch!

A girl needs to dream. A girl needs to dream about a bright sunshine-y day without rain or sleet or snow. A day without salt stained boots and static-y flyaway hair. Of turquoise waters and itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny bikinis. Having gone on a warm December vacation, my hopes were high for a quick segue way into Spring. Since that hasn’t been the case, I’ll settle for Summer Beach Dreams.
I have already planned out my travels for the next year (because a girl has got to see the world). Well, if you’re a follower of the LC, you know how I feel about a gypset wardrobe. If it were tropical here, I would be wearing a caftan walking down the sidewalk. Some summer loves to keep you daydreaming… *lesigh

I blame my friend S for my ruin. She gently twisted my arm and we bought stellar tickets to Beyoncé. She only gets reallyx3 good tickets to concerts. She wants to see them up close and personal. She wants to see them sweat. But now that I’ve been spoiled, I can’t go backwards and every time I get tickets to something, I need to be right up in the action. Slippery slope and it’s what I like to call a shame spiral.
Of all the bands and artists I have yet to see, I put it out there that I would like to see Lana Del Rey. Lo and behold, the universe delivered in the form of a Live Nation alert. So I bit the bullet and I’m going to see her do her gangster-Nancy Sinatra thing in the Spring (a rhyme).
Here is a playlist of my faves on repeat… She will be releasing a new album in 2014 Ultraviolence
- Summer Wine – with James Barrie O`Neill (cover of Nancy Sinatra = fun!)
- Blue Velvet
- Ridin`- with ASAP Rocky
- Bel Air
- Bonus: Link to her short film Tropico

“Are you happy to see me, or are those printed pants?” haha. I thought that was pretty clever. Darlings, the fashionistah adventuress among you, let’s huddle close to stave off these mean winter blues. Even though it’s supposedly Spring, the double digit sub zero weather would have us believe otherwise. While I can’t wear any of my fab Spring/Summer finds just yet, I am amassing a secret arsenal of veryx3 fun outfits to sport galavanting whilst vintage shopping, having drinks al fresco or at a friends’ barbecue.
One of my favourite up and coming trends for Spring is the printed pant. This Spring promises to be bright and colourful with a throwback to retro silhouettes. Forget that we just had a blizzard mid-March. Are you excited yet? Can your wardrobe handle it?

Besides daisies, plaid and 90′s nostalgia becoming all the rage, everyone is all about Jared Leto and his lustrous manlocks. For those of us who are
old young enough to remember, his claim to fame was starring as Jordan Catalano on my So-Called Life. He was the quintessential aloof pretty boy leaning on walls, distracted, being reallyx3 attractive from all angles, object of Angela Chase’s unrequited love and the bad boy of our collective dreams. He had a few years where he pursued his music with 30 Seconds to Mars and we all forgot what a sexy babe he is.
But he’s been drinking the blood of innocents and that’s what you look like when you’ve made a pact with Beelzebub. Some of his memorable looks today and yesterday. Enjoy!
