What is your favorite thing about boutique by Forever 21? I love how each piece feels lovely and special but not fussy. You can dress them up or layer them over more casual pieces for a truly unique feel.
One thing I love is to is sit in Barns & Noble and grab every fashion magazine there is and read them all, stare at all the pictures and tune everyone out, especially because I get no magazines while at school I've been dying! and missing out!
After seeing that wonderful short film with all the Chanel clothing and accessories made for V magazine that i posted a couple of days ago, I had to go buy a copy of the magazine! I immediately fell in love with it, as do I with any fashion magazine. V magazine caught my eye with the huge pages, colors, and wonderfully chosen fashion ads, and photo shoots. I also very much enjoyed that Natalie Portman was on the cover, and had the most beautiful photo shoot of my life; edgy, raw, masculine and beautiful all at the same time.
Theres pages of collages of celebs at parties with/for V magazine, articles about new up and coming artists/musicians/models/fashion designers. Along with all of this, there was the interview with Alexa Chung I have been dying to get a hold of, along with amazing photographs of her. See the article/interview here
What was my favorite part of the magazine? The "Pin me up, pin me down" photo shoot, based off Pin up girls - done the modern way.
Thanks to Topshop's facebook page I just died a little, some of the pieces Ms. Audrey Hepburn has worn are being auctioned off over three days in December. I know everyone loves Ms. Hepburn and would die for these clothes, which is why I'm about to hyperventilate!!!! You can see all of her clothes and accessories being auctioned off, as well as vintage Chanel bags, shoes, and other designer dresses/clothing. I'M DYING! Take a LOOK!

I recently came across Sonic Fabric, this awesome fabric company makes fabric out of 50% recorded audio cassette tape and 50% polyester thread. The fabric ends up looking metallic and shiny, and the best thing about it? It's actually listenable! You can make a listening device and listen to your fabric or if it's something already made, your clothing!
Every day I receive the Zoe Report in my e-mail, and "I die" a little. Rachel Zoe sends out an email to her subscribers letting them know about a new item in the fashion world yet to be discovered and can be the new trend, she explains why the item is great and then goes on to usually show you an item similar that is less expensive. Here's what the e-mail looks like,
it's a pretty great way to know what's in, or what's up and coming
I'm shaking with anticipation to see An Education Thursday for my one year anniversary with my boyfriend, I fell in love the minute I found out it took place in London during the 1960's, it was plus for me to find out it was a love story of a teenage girl (played by Carey Mulligan, who reminds me of Audrey Hepburn and Zooey Deschanel) and an older man (Peter Sarsgaard). The costumes are simply amazing, take a look.
As I'm sure you've all heard already, Luella ceased trading. Club 21 has decided to not invest anymore in the company. "I love the Luella character and hope that after we have survived this challenging time the Luella girl can have an exciting future ahead of her, whichever incarnation she takes on next. We have a number of options open to us, and are considering these over the coming months." - Luella Bartley
