Varsity is the new black

Designers such as Rag & Bone and Givenchy added an signature touch up to the traditional varsity jacket for a look that's hip and chic. Oversize sportswear will make a statement this fall.

"Moschino"


"Rag&Bone"


"Givenchy"


"YSL"


So, what do you think? Should designers leave varsity to the jocks, or could you see yourself sporting this trend in fall 2011?

Front Roe and centered

I have a sick obsession with anything Louise Roe is in. She is my ultimate style icon. I love her. I think she is a beautiful person both inside and out. For anyone who is unfamiliar with the beautiful Louise Roe she is is an English television presenter, model, and fashion journalist. She is notable for hosting BBC's The Clothes Show, E!’s Fashion Police, E!'s Perfect Catch, and the CW TV show Plain Jane.

The Making of....Threadsence SPRING 2011 Lookbook

I love this video. Every time I look at it, this remind me how spring/summer should be:) Really make you appreciate simplicity and the beauty of nature.

First look: Paper Crown



One of my favorite celebrities and fashion icon is Lauren Conrad. I love her looks and her line. So I felt that it is essential for me to do a post on her new line called "Paper Crown". The images are from Paper Crown's 2011 look book. I love the feel of this collection. It's very formal, pretty, and flirty. The pieces are flattering and very Lauren Conrad. I can see her wearing each and every outfit on the red carpet or for a night out which is what I love about her collection. It's runway ready and street ready.













Special Announcement

Hello all of my fabulous followers. I am suffering from a shoe breakdown. I fell in love with the Jessica Simpson "Dany" shoe. I've seen the shoe on many blogs, fashion site's, and magazine. But here is the thing, the "Dany" is sold out at every store and website that I have visited. I'm sure that I have not visited every site possible so here is where you guys come in. If any of you know where I can purchase a pair please link the site or post the name of the store. I'm aware of Jeffery Campbell's version "Foxy" But I prefer the "Dany". Please help me:) -Dawn

Tired of sunrise. Just hoping for a sunset

"Augustana-Boston"

In the light of the sun, is there anyone? Oh it has begun...
Oh dear you look so lost, eyes are red and tears are shed,
This world you must've crossed... she said...

You don't know me, you don't even care, oh yeah,
She said
You don't know me, and you don't wear my chains... oh yeah,

Essential yet appealed, carry all your thoughts across
An open field,
When flowers gaze at you... they're not the only ones who cry
When they see you
She said...

You don't know me, you don't even care, oh yeah,
She said
You don't know me, and you don't wear my chains... oh yeah,

Storms are brewing in the summer



Sixpence None The Richer

Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress.

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me down by the broken tree house
Swing me upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring, bring your flowered hat
We'll take the trail marked on your father's map

Give love another life





Goo Goo Dolls - Iris

And I'd give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight
Chorus

And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive
