Polyvore.. heart heart heart!

Welcome to a tell-show-enjoy post. I tell, we show, and you enjoy! Clever right?

Ever heard of polyvore.com? Well, you now have read it.... This site allows you to create collages with different backgrounds and texts or artsy model photos, and contains many many photos of different brand name clothing or otherwise/lots of pictures of clothes.

Thanks to our wundebar! (that's wonderful in German) S, we have a great many samples to show you, and just to give you a little taste, I've picked 4 of my favorites:

Appreciate, delight in, be entertained by, take pleasure in, savor, revel in, love, get a kick out of, and adore (love online thesauruses...) these inspirational collages.

Mine, mine, mine!

Ooooh! Gimme gimme gimme! It's said, "Ask and ye shall receive". So consider this my asking. Yes my birthday has passed... but that''s not stopping me!

And yes, I do realize that a couple of these items are ENTIRELY not appropriate for me to wear at my age (nothing scandalous, don't worry) but hey! A girl can dream can't she? And I do plan to grow up eventually....

♫Maybe its cooooral♫

Spring break, a love of all loves. Where did we all head off to? T headed off to Tucson to some quality time with her sister and a godmother with a head full of cascading dred(lock)s.

Thank you to the ♫Maybe it's Maybelline♫ ad for the inspiration for the title. You know T.. just giving credit where credit is due. And on that note, thank you to T's wonderful sister for taking these wonderful picturas (...pictures, in Spanglish).

Happy egg day!

Though for some, this can be a religious holiday, do enjoy a chocolate bunny today, go a-huntin' for some eggs, or simply feast on whatever you gave up for Lent. Spend some time with your family, or pull out that exquisite and snazzy Easter outfit, and go out and strut ur stuf.

Oh new york city

The Big Apple. Concrete Jungle (where dreams are made of). The Empire State. The Capital of the World. The City That Never Sleeps.

And don't forget the street fashion there.

New york city is known for so many things but the street fashion there... amazing!
Let's just be honest here. I am living out my current life in Silicon Valley, but when it comes time for college-- New York City here I come! (most likely... cross your fingers!)

Thanks to the beautiful people at streetpeeper.com, I have been able to access pictures of people who have graced the streets of New York City. Going through these pictures is awesome. There is so much personal style in the beautiful City of New York, and it's my wonderful pleasure to share with you some of my favorite finds.

A vintage(inspired) coat topped with fur for the win. Green green green! Earth week at our school, and I thought this look was very appropriate. But maybe without the fur... but then again. It's just so fabulous! :P
Just look at it! So put together, and hopefully warm... look at the snow in the background. Not a fan...

Can't you tell I just love feux fur? I don't know what it is about this outfit... It just looks effortlessly chic. Leather shorts, a plus. The small little bowtie, a definite plus. And those glasses are perfect secret agent attire. A plus.
The outfit must have taken some time to put together, but you would never know. Not exactly minimalist, but definitely less is more for this look. 

Eh meh gosh. Can I have this, please? It looks so warm and comfortable, yet clearly fashionable. The perfect outfit.
Cozy and stylish.
It reminds me of Ugly Betty's poncho... but pretty! Very very very pretty to be sure! And to match with the checkered shirt? Who would-a thunk? The whole outfit... it just looks so good. You just have to put it all together.

Ah yes New York City. How I envy you. So many shows filmed there. So much fashion to indulge in...
Silicon Valley on the other hand... mergadoodle (urban-dictionary it).

Tatler: the queen of magazines

So you have your Teen Vogue in hand, and your Nylon is on the counter. Issues of Glamour are on your desk, and God knows where your latest Cosmo went (maybe this has to do with reading it so often!) But there you are sighing, wanting the perfect magazine: a one stop 300 pages of everything a girl wants to drool over. I'm here to tell you to pack your other magazines away (forget about that missing Cosmo issue) and get your hands on the latest Tatler... preferably in a legal way!

(Here is the current issue of Tatler with Naomi Watts on the cover! Note: these images are not ours. Rights go to their respective owners.)

Now you Brits probably know what I'm talking about, but for all you other folk, consider this your first (and definitely not your last!) introduction to the Tatler.

Tatler: the name is synonymous with the perfect mix of fashion, celebrities, royals/Hons, and actual news.

Everyone from celebrities to royals have graced the cover of Tatler– from Diane Kruger to Kate Middleton and even the Queen herself.

(An issue with Kate Middleton commemorating Andy Warhol's work)

Every publication of the Tatler is filled to the brink with fashion. Its glossy pages are covered with new up and coming trends as well as this season's colors.

If these reasons aren't enough for you to pick up a copy of the Tatler, I'm sure you're not female. But I'm sure your girlfriend would appreciate a Tatler subscription as her next gift.

Trust me.
