Headed to the LA County Fair last night, where we ate like shit, acted like children, and all that fun fair stuff. Decided I do not like ferris wheels (realized this mid-air), but I do love county fair people watching… Oh, and apparently taking pictures that make the fair look deserted.

What’s your favorite carnival food and ride?

Mine is funnel cake or chocolate covered banana and the haunted house (or the tunnel-o-love, which may or may not only exist in movies).



Beanie: Urban Outfitters ($10 in-store); Dress: Vintage; Shoes: Alice + Olivia for Payless

This was pretty much my Coachella ’09 outfit minus the shoes. And speaking of A+O for Payless, I would really like this bag.



and apparently they heart me back (well, at least Sinead does)!

Thanks Missbehave! If I had less pigment in my skin, I’d so be blushing right now.

PS – How great is this cover!? I want to style a Missbehave shoot asap! I can’t wait to see how they conquer going digital – I’ve heard the new layout is ten kinds of amazing!

letterfromtheedSo… here it is –! Worth the wait? Here are some things of note:

  • rotating header (changes with every couple of loads, and the collages will change monthly)
  • french vogue theme! nuff said.
  • New DIY post to kick things off below
  • if you find any kinks, please let me know
  • if you link to me (or want to) please update to the new address
  • still updating the blogroll – if you’d like to exchange links, drop a comment/email
  • still taking questions for future Q&A posts – email me!
  • super special thanks to KP for bringing my design to life!

YAY! Let me know what you think in the comments! xo


Here’s the super-sneak peek at the new blog layout that myself & KP have been working on, alongside my inspiration (and my messy desktop)!

My inspiration for the new layout is French Vogue‘s “une fille un style” section, where they highlight the life & style of influential creative women. I definitely hope to be in this section one day, but ’til then, this is my little fantasy version. The photos will change each month, so you’ll see a slightly new layout each month, kind of like a real magazine (see what I did there?).

I’m hoping to have it live this week as I’m (still) itching to be back up & posting. I have lots I want to share (including adventures with miss Gala Darling who is staying with me while in LA)!

I’m admittedly terrified of change… but who couldn’t use a nice clean slate from time to time?

So – what do you think??
