let the sun shine...

High waisted jeans, a floral crop-top, and a romantic ruffly vest have all the makings for a fashion feat of hippie proportions... one love.

that makes scents!

As a longtime lover of nail polish, I'm super stoked about Revlon's Fruitful Temptations, a limited-edition collection of** OMG** scented nail polishes! That's right my friends, get ready to kick it old school with an array of 8 shades that smell deliciously like tropical fruit when dry! I myself am super stoked to experience lightly perfumed digits and the sense of nostalgia that they evoke... Back in the 8th grade I bought a vanilla scented top coat from Claire's that I applied religiously until my little flower-adorned bottle ran dry... I remember being heartbroken to discover that my beloved enamel had been discontinued, and cursed my wretched fate when I couldn't find a suitable substitute. A good decade or so later, and my prayers have finally been answered! In such tantalizing shades as Coconut Crush, Mad About Mango, Pretty In Papaya, Sublime Strawberry, Raspberry Rapture, Mon Cherry, Passionate Fruit, and Not So Blue-Berry, the 13 year old girl inside can finally have her scented nail polish and wear it too...

the ultimate stydol: Louise Ebel

I'm so in love with Louise Ebel's style that I've decided to elevate her to ultimate stydol status... sorry Alexa! Every time I see a photo of her I fall deeper and deeper in love with the chameleon-esque looks she creates, which seem to constantly fluctuate between Victorian goth and geek chic aesthetics. This Parisian beauty is an art history student with a killer blog and a penchant for vintage clothing, which makes her a girl after my own heart... oh Louise, how I love thee!

look of the day...

I'm loving this fur vest (rawr!) over her simple dress, which she expertly accessorized with a statement belt, patterned tights and killer boots... As far as I'm concerned, this outfit is gold. Period.

les beaux-arts...

accessory stydol...

Although Alix of Cherry Blossom Girl fame constantly produces drool-worthy outfits, the thing I admire most about her is her amazing, and seemingly vast, accessory collection. From gorgeous bags to designer shoes and fabulous jewels, Alix is always sporting amazing pieces that reflect her wicked personal style. Here she rocks Grey Ant Sunnies, Givenchy heels (not fair!) and my dream bag- the Chanel 2.55. Needless to say, I'm a little envious...
