Review: LC's Urban Outfitters Jumper


I thought Lauren Conrad looked super cute and causal shopping at Barney's in Beverly Hills and made it my mission to find her outfit.  I was happy to find out that her jumper is from Urban Outfitters by Kimchi Blue and retails for only $42!   

I went on my lunch break to try it on and it is SO short! Not sure if I would feel comfortable walking around in it all day...trying to work up some courage.  J. Crew's "Forever" Cardigan in Heather Grey would be perfect with it and then of course my beloved Miu Mius.  Mission complete.

My New Favorite Stylist: Nicole Chavez

I was so happy to see Nicole Chavez on whowhatwear.com today! I totally love the way she dresses her clients to best reflect their personalities.  Some of the lucky ladies she works with are Rachel Bilson, Kristen Bell, Scarlett Johanson, Katherine Heigl, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Brittany Snow, Jessica Simpson and Catherine Zeta-Jones.  She has also styled Carrie Underwood, Miley Cyrus and Hilary Duff...So basically half of Hollywood :)


Here are just a few looks styled by Nicole... Katherine Heigl at the 2007 Emmys in Zac Posen (one of my favorite looks ever!), Kristen Bell at a recent Cosmopolitan magazine party and Rachel Bilson at the 2009 MET Gala:


Hopefully I can share some exciting news regarding Ms. Chavez soon...To be continued!

♥ Recent Outfits

Hmm, it seems like an intervention might be needed soon because everything I buy or that's on my wish list is some sort of floral print :)

Outfit #1: Current/Elliot Denim Jacket, Parker Floral Dress, Tory Burch Flip Flops

Outfit #2: Tucker Shirtdress paired with Miu Miu Heels...this is now my "lucky" outfit for a certain reason

Happy 1 Year Phillip Lim!

So jealous that I was not invited to the 1 year anniversary of the Los Angeles Phillip Lim store.  Not only is he my favorite designer but some of my favorite fashionistas were there.  Rachel Bilson looked sexy and edgy in a rose gold Phillip Lim suit and detailed, black top.  I also adored Willa Holland's (from the O.C.!) look- love that she mixed the two prints together with a basic black skirt and nude heels.  Maybe next year I will get to attend...I can dream, it's my birthday week!

Hanky Panky Sale

Just wanted to share some of the Hanky Panky Low Rise colors that are going to be on sale during the Nordstroms Anniversary Sale starting this Friday the 17th.  There were a few other low rise colors to choose from and also a bunch in the regular style.  The lady at my Nordstroms let me preorder tonight and take them home with me so I don't have to make another trip back!  I would definitely try to preorder because the cute colors sell out fast during the sale.

Originally $18, on sale for $11.90 or 4 pairs for $45.

Recent Purchases

Today I went shopping with my Mom at the South Coast Plaza Mall and came home with some great things!  We were looking just for fun and also to get some ideas about what I want for my upcoming birthday: Trying to decide between two things (hint: a necklace or a bag)...

Miu Miu shoes on major sale at Barneys ($240 originally $600!)

Gryphon skirt from Intermix

Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent dress from Intermix

My favorite duo: Make Up For Ever HD Foundation (#125 Sand) and HD Primer from Sephora

Also picked up two pairs of Hanky Pankys (FYI Nordstroms has them at the Anniversary sale this Friday for approximately $11 each).

Opposites Attract

WOW! I am totally in love with both of these Christian Louboutin shoes even though they are total opposites of each other.  I love the bejeweled ones (pictured above) but the price tag is completely outrageous ($2830!).  The studded, peep toe pumps would be perfect to spice up an outfit for fall (available for preorder for $895).  Hopefully these will end up on sale!

"LOVE" It: An Early Birthday Present

Nothing puts a smile on my face like a little red box!  I decided to treat myself to an early birthday present and support a good cause by picking up one of the limited edition 2009 Cartier Charity Love Bracelets.

The bracelet features a rose gold charm with a diamond in the "o".  The cord it's on can also be changed at any time for free and there are about 25 colors to choose from!

I picked The Breast Cancer Research Foundation as the charity to donate to with the purchase of my bracelet.  The sales lady also included a couple of cords for fun in case I wanted to try to change it myself (I got red, plum, pink, orange and the white cord it came on).  "LOVE" it!
