My package finally came today! I have been eyeballing this piece for months now and was extremely excited when I saw it was on sale so I just had to buy it! It is absolutely fabulous! Thank you HSN.com

The leaves outside are starting to change. I'm glad I get to be back in Portland for fall season, it is simply gorgeous this time of year. I'll make sure to take a lot of photos !

wish list

I was just playing around with polyvore and thought I might as well make a wish list collage of a couple of items I want to add to my closet. I tried on a pair of current elliot boyfriend jeans while shopping in Aritzia and fell in love with them. They aren't a pair of jeans I would wear as often as my others but they would be absolutely perfect for traveling from airport to airport - plus they would just look sassy with a loose fitted white tee for the days I don't really feel like being too creative. Then I am just a sucker for plain T-shirts, especially Alexander Wang tee's. Jeffrey Campbell shoes and a studded Rebecca Minkoff purse - that is it for now, Im sure in the next couple of days my list will be a page long.

layers everywhere

I am so excited for this fall season, layers, layers, layers, and some more layers!

I just realized that I don't have a day off until next sunday, oh well, I guess I have to keep up with my spending habits somehow!

I just added all three of these shoes to my wish board, everything I had on there before has been checked off so therefore it's time to add some more goodies!

Jeffrey Campbell & Dolce Vita

I also really want these bad boys by Jeffrey Campbell
All three pairs would look fabulous in my closet.

I wasn't feeling very creative today but I am so thankful for my dolce vita shoes, they bring my casual day wear combo to the next level - so I don't feel completely underdressed - and might I add that they are extremely comfortable.

A couple Spring 2010 Ready-To-Wear looks that I have fallen in love with:

(Erin Wasson X RVCA, Charlotte Ronson, Cynthia Steffe, Dennis Basso)
I love all the soft colors, especially all combined!

(Jill Stuart, Phi, Threeasfour, Alexander Wang)

(grey tee zara, dark wash skinny jeans zara, dolce vita wedges, purse zara)




I have already discovered what I want my new years resolution to be - grow out my hair so I too can master the fabulous loose sided braid, it is absolutely gorgeous yet so simple!

loveloveloveeee it!

and might I add that Alexander Wang's 2010 sporty spring collection is to die for.


Faux Fur

I applied for a apple credit card today, got denied. I guess having some existing credit would help out a tad. I just really want a new computer but it looks like I have to be patient - not my forte. Today has not been very eventful but the overcast weather is rather nice. I guess I'll spend the rest of my day catching up on all the spring 2010 fashion shows and drooling over dolce vita shoes I have been eyeballing for weeks now. I ordered some more nOir jewelry yesterday and I am ready for it to be here already, but again I need to be patient.

P.s. I just realized my pants need to be ironed, that's embarrassing hah.




It's been years since I have been to chicago and I forgot how amazing it was. The wedding was beautiful, the shopping was fabulous, and seeing the McCaffery family was the best part. Back to reality this week.

Grey, Black, Silver

I really liked the lighting in the Gap dressing room so I thought I might as well capture what I was wearing, hah. I was trying to go for the Haider Ackermann look, with a lot of draping of fabric and bold boots. I absolutely love the sweater I got - seen in the photograph's - it is the most amazing piece of clothing I have purchased in a long time. I have worn it with almost everything these past days, plus it's great to wear just around the house!

I really miss germany, I think I am going back for Christmas - just in time for all the Christmas markets and Gluhwein!

here comes fall

It rained a little today, so therefore it gave me an excuse to wear my new scarf, it was great. The weather is supposed to be in the 60's this week - bring on the layers!

seventeen more days until fall!

last days of summer

Today is a good day. I am finally over my jet lag, purchased about five different types of allergy medicine - for adults and children - I couldn't make up my mind obviously, but I can breathe the fresh air once again! I am still on the look out for a nice cruiser bicycle, I have to put the most adorable bell I bought in amsterdam to good use!

I think I am going to paint outside on my patio, it is too nice of a day to sit inside.
