So here's a little background on this post, I am obsessed, in love, and idolize Zooey Deschanel. I love her style, her hair, her eyes, her voice! She's amazing... ANYWAYS, I'm sure you all know she's in the band She & Him with M. Ward (one of my most favorite singers), and they have a new album coming out in March so naturally they are going on tour (yay!). I tried and did not succeed with getting pre-sale tickets to the show in NYC, but my wonderful boyfriend woke up when I had class and managed to get tickets when they went on sale to the public! So I am officially seeing my idol, Zooey Deschanel preform with M. Ward on March 30th, as you can tell I'm over excited and crossing my fingers that I can somehow meet her.... (I would cry probably)
so back to my post....
Zooey pictures for you:
She's gorgeous, and has the best clothes!
In other news I want to thank Kelsea from Kelsealaurel for the Best Blog Award! She has a wonderful blog mainly for nail polish colors, she gets the greatest colors!

Havin' a blast thinking about the summer, the beach and bathing suits. Especially vintage inspired suits, high waisted bottoms, cute little tops, or one pieces with little shorts at the bottom. In classic colors, polka dots, or cute prints. How wonderful does that sound? Someone bring me to Hawaii, I need the warmth! While I'm waiting here are some of my favorite pictures of vintage suits.

I thought it'd be fun to post about my blog name 'Marissa Explains It All'. If you were a kid in the 90s, you loved the nickelodeon show Clarissa Explains It All, naturally it was my favorite show. She was the coolest kid on TV and had the best wardrobe ever, duh. Crop tops, prints, biker shorts, leather, neon colors - how much better can it get? Well, for Valentine's day last year my boyfriend made me an album cover that was supposed to be for a vinyl and had a mix CD inside, what was the cover? A picture of me with the saying "Marissa explains it all"
The infamous first picture from my present
After seeing this I feel in love of course, and when I decided to make my own fashion blog for more personal use (I also have a blog with two of my friends Q. and C. The Triple Thread) I knew I had to use this name with the encouragement of my boyfriend (thank you Greg!). He made my header, used the same font as Clarissa had in her logo/theme song and I was set!
Here is some rockin' pictures of Clarissa
Sorry these aren't the best quality, I'm pretty sure they are all screen prints!
None the less, they are wonderful!
I hope you had a laugh at this post, back with vintage inspired bathing suits tomorrow

Recently I've been inspired by vintage fashion and icons, well not recently... I'm always inspired by vintage anything. It's been even more this week because my art history teacher was talking about analyzing a picture or work of art and being able to tell when it was made or taken by symbols, clothing etc. She used a picture of Jackie O. (Kennedy) as an example. This reminded me of how much I love her, so I had to show you some of my favorite pictures and more things inspired by vintage and her.
I also found an editorial a couple of weeks ago that I thought I'd never post about but it's pretty vintage inspired and looks like Jackie O's style with a modern twist, so now I feel the urge to show you that as well. It's called Cote d'Allure from the January 2010 Vogue Germany, with Madisyn Ritland.
To see the whole editorial and details visit The Fashion Time Magazine
ANNND I also stumbled upon Julia Bereciartu's collage work, and I absolutely love it. Thank you Lauren from Lofting Odysseys for sharing! There is even some with Jackie O <3
I hope you enjoyed all my new favorite vintage inspirations!
Back with an outfit post probably tomorrow
