New Years Resolutions from Wang, Wasson, and More!

Happy New Year! Do you have any New Year's Resolutions? Alexander Wang, Erin Wasson, and other fashion designers do! I put my favs below, and you can check out more resolutions from the fashion community here.

Alexander Wang (Alexander Wang):
"Hmm I haven't really made any new year's resolutions - I find that its better to surprise myself than to have expectations I can't keep. But I guess if I had to make one it would be to eat more organic… no junk food. Except for maybe pineapple buns!"


Erin Wasson (Erin Wasson x RVCA):
"Next year, I'm definitely devoting myself to saving and adopting more animals. I will be on a crusade to do as much as I can. Yes, I can only imagine how crowded my house will be by 2010!"

Lisa Mayock (Vena Cava):
"By the end of 2009, I'd like to learn enough Spanish to be able to chat comfortably with the dude who owns the bodega downstairs."


Abigail Lorick (Lorick): "My New Year's resolution is to get health insurance. And to be more selfless."

Melissa Coker (Wren): "To spend more time at nice places like Griffith Park and the Huntington Library. And to eat more Omega-3s."

Elizabeth Yarborough (Yarborough Jewelry): "I have made many, many resolutions for the new year. At the top of my list is reading, which has fallen by the wayside recently. In 2009, I resolve to shut out the world and read for at least an hour every day, starting in January with some stuffy English Lit."

Wendy Mullin (Built by Wendy): "Go more places, stay longer."

Parisian Perhaps?

Hat: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Necklaces: Margo Morrison + Heart Necklace from BF
Long Tank Top: Gap
Cardigan + Tights: Urban Outfitters
Boots: Nine West Cuzza

I had my boyfriend take a quick outfit pic before we left to go meet up with some friends for coffee and a movie. We saw Seven Pounds with Will Smith, which I absolutely loved, but it is really intense for basically the whole movie so I'm kind of exhausted. Also, I'm sorry about the red eye and the overall quality of a lot of the pictures I take, my camera is in the process of dying and I'm just too busy/poor to get a new one. As soon as I get back to school though I will be trying to teach myself how to use Photoshop! So expect me to be less red-eyed and possibly 10lbs lighter in future pictures (just kidding about the 10lbs... maybe?).

Hayden-Harnett for Target Available Now

Christmas might be over, but Target just keeps on giving! Today is the official release of both Hayden-Harnett for Target AND Thakoon for Target (check out my review here). I previously posted pics of the Hayden-Harnett collaboration here, and you can check out the whole collection at Target's website. What do you think? My favorite bags are the Hobo bag in black and the Double-Flap bag in brown (both pictured below), but I want to check out the quality of the bags in stores before I buy any. Are you planning on buying anything from this latest Target collab?

Welcome to the Bright Side: Hot Pink Tights

Paris Hilton has done it again. She was spotted wearing hot pink tights in 2007, and now they're everywhere! Of course, various fashionistas have found different ways to style hot pink tights (arguably much better ways than that shown above) - check out some other stylings below. I am loving this look, in the middle of such a cold, dark, and dreary winter full of greys and blacks this burst of pink is just what is needed! I think I'll be stopping by Express this weekend to pick up a pair (for less than $5, it'd be wrong not to).

Margo Morrison Rainbow Moonstone Necklace

The day I left to go home for the holidays I received my Margo Morrison necklace in the mail. It is so beautiful, I just had to share it with you all! I won it from a Gossip Girl contest on CelebStyle (check the post here) - it is the Rainbow Moonstone Necklace that Blake Lively wore on episode 2 of season 2 of Gossip Girls (of course not the same one she wore - I wonder if she got to keep hers?). Anyways, it's absolutely stunning. These pictures do NOT do it justice! The stones are white, but they reflect the colors that you're wearing such that they take on different tones in different environments. Basically, this necklace goes with absolutely everything in my closet! Also, it's really long so you can drape it around your neck in a million different ways to create a million different looks. If you would like to check out more of Margo Morrison's one-of-a-kind jewelry, click here for her website - and get ready to drool!

Thakoon for Target has landed!


It doesn't officially release until tomorrow, but online and in many stores the newest Target GO International collaboration is available! The Thakoon for Target line consists of dresses, skirts, sweaters, tanks, and bathing suits (ahh summer already?!) in flowery prints. I'm not really blown away by this collection, judging from the pictures online, but I plan to check it out in stores this week and see if it looks better in person. You can check it out by clicking here or going to Target.com and searching for "Thakoon", and by tomorrow it should be available at their GO website and in all stores. And don't forget that there is free shipping at Target.com with orders over $50. Happy Shopping!

Edit: The official Target link is now up here!

New Years Eve Looks

Christmas is over, now it's time to plan your New Years Eve outfit! I love New Years Eve, because it's pretty hard to go overboard with the sparkles and sequins on a night like that. The more shimmer, the better! I mean, you are competing with a giant multi-colored crystal ball of lights, it's hard to look overdone in comparison. By the way, the picture above is of the new ball this year - it is made out of 2,668 Waterford Crystals, and is twice the size of the ball used last year. I can't wait to see it! You can read more about it here.

Anyways, on New Years Eve my motto is the brighter the better! So here are some sparkly options for next week - with prices ranging from $38-352, there's a look to fit every budget! Any favs? And do you know what you're wearing this New Years Eve? Do share!

I like your style: Xiaoyi Dai

When looking at pictures from the red carpet at Vogue China's Icons Awards earlier this month, I stumbled across model Xiaoyi Dai in some kick-ass boots and an incredible necklace, both of which I now long to own. In case you didn't know, in 2005 Xiaoyi Dai won China's Top Model, and she has recently signed with Elite Model Management. Random fact: she's also a fencer! Anyways, I really love her style, and she's gorgeous. Check out some of her work below from Singapore Style Magazine (Sept. 2008). Click on the pics to make them bigger!
