Art and Ghosts

Last night I spent some time on the fabu site, Etsy.com, to find some fun art work for my new apartment. I came across "Art and Ghost", an artist from Manchester who does fabulously magical prints inspired by fairy tales, mythology, and nightmares. They are really quite eery. See more of her work here.

Under $101: Romantic Afternoon

As spring turns to summer it is about time that we get the romance back in the picture. I love a warm summer afternoon spent strolling the city with my guy. I want to feel as cute and comfortable as I do just lounging around in my apartment.

A trapeze dress and cute sandals will do the trick, just polish the look off with a bunch of bangles and I'm all set. Only $98.79 with change to spare.


Fabu and Faboo Looks of the Day




I love Calista Flockhart's classic outfit with a touch of bling off the gold waist cinching belt.

Paulina Rubio stole the vest off a plastic cowboy and paired it with some hooker boots.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Dolce Gabbana Party Edition

Beyond Sharp. Wouldn't it be lovely if all men dressed like this?
Appealingly gaudy.

Several faux cheetahs were slaughtered for this bed sheet?



All About Me Today

I got to thinking that perhaps it was not fair of me to critique everyone else's looks without subjecting myself to the same treatment.
Wearing Today:
Cream Cropped Peacoat--Urban Outfitters
Peach Linen Trapeze Dress--Forever 21
Faux Gold Leaf Pendant--H&M
Light Gold Ballet Flats--Steve Madden

Fa-BOO Look of the Day: Maggie Gyllenhal



So many looks gone horribly wrong Maggie G. The cropped jacket would have looked fabu with a long slim tank and skinny jeans. The shorts and blouson tank would have looked fab with some shimmery flats and a chic headband. That hat would look good...on my grandmother. So I say Fa-BOO to you MG. I expect so much more.

Cameron Diaz Rocks the Look of the Day


I love this look that Cameron Diaz brought to the Shrek 3 Photo call in Tokyo. Seriously, I realize you have to be a beanpole to pull of the cropped fitted blazer with skin tight slim cut jeans. But CD demonstrates such edgy and effortless style. She is definitely the look of the day.

Beach Bag Steal



Love this bag for the beachy weather that has arrived in the windy city. I found it while perusing Target this afternoon. It is beyond oversized and can easily fit a large beach blanket, snacks, cover ups, sunscreen, books, and everything else you will need on a Saturday morning beach trip.

Seagrass Tote - $12.99

Ruffles Are Not Just for Pirates

I love the ruffle blouse look for summer work and play. I thought this post was fitting seeing as Pirates of the Carribean came out this weekend and we all know that pirates love to wear their ruffles. LiLo rocks it perfectly as she seeks paparazzi attention at the Ivy.
