paper crown.

lauren conrad introduces a lookbook for upcoming line, paper crown.

full of minimalistic looks, fashion forward pieces mixed with everyday basics and lots of neutrals, blacks and feminine prints.

lauren may have had her future mtv show cancelled [apparently mtv felt it was too "high-brow" for their typical audience- lauren wanted complete control over what would actually make the cut on her fashion oriented show], but i truly believe she will still come out on top.

with what looks like her best work yet, lauren sticks to what she knows will look beautiful on women - simplicity, feminine cuts and basic, yet edgy designs. whether it's a sexy pair of leather leggings and a billowy blouse; a etherial floor-sweeping maxi gown; or silhouette-flattering shorts paired with a blazer, LC [as she is better known by her loyal fashion pack] has designed something to satisfy everyone.



this collection really impressed me, partially because it reminds me of one of my favorite stores, aritzia- the whole minimalist, neutrals, boxy meets sexy vibe, and one of the lines i regularly lust for, the row- mary kate and ashley olsen's more urban, sophisticated, edgier line.

my favorite looks are:
1- the brooklyn jacket and abigal maxi skirt (second from bottom)
2- the ryder blazer and hudson leather short (first look)
3- the camilla sweater and dakota leggings with black hat (sixth look)
4- the ella gown in floral vine print (seventh look)

i can whole-heartedly say that i will be counting down the days until this line becomes available.... apparently sometime this coming autumn, which is safe to say, not nearly soon enough.

headmistress s/s11.

if there's anything a self-professed, modern-day hippie [much like myself] adores, it's feathers, headbands, rings and turbans.

thank goodness for jillian wood, of headmistress, who satisfies my bohemian accessory cravings. this spring/summer 2011 she has made many a boho dream come true with her gorgeous and unique designs.
here are my top three lust-worthy pieces:

the addie headband

the edith demi-turban
the joan double feather ring

wow's everyone at new york fashion week.
