Of the moment girl crush: Alexa Chung

Too apropos, no? I think that after a short while/ hot second her name and her rep will go down in flames due to overexposure - I don't really care though - she is uber chic, amazingly funny and charms the pants off of Bradley Cooper. No dice. No, DIIIIIICCEE.

Who says 16 is so bad?

If you ask me, super-blogger, Jane Adridge makes post pre-teen/ mid adolesence look pretty damm near appealing - if I had her mom's closet and the same shoe allowance, I don't know if I would ever complain about awkward acne (the condition not the lanvin for acne denim the chick owns), oddly shaped body parts and prom dates.

Mrs. John L. Strong - wowo!

I adore Mrs. John L. Strong's stationary, so it's only natural that her bookmarks are worth noting as well. In 5 assorted prints, they would act as a beautiful hostess gift (for a book party perhaps), or work as a darling little treat inside stockings, atop gift baskets or alongside a good read atop your own night stand. With stores in Manhattan and retailers such as Barney's New York promoting the goods, you have no excuse as to your shopping delay!

Stella McCartney has always been an all time favorite of mine - as both a person and a designer. I appreciate her subdued feminine aesthetic and continually work towards recreating the sharp, tailored extras that provide a bit more edge to the lace and dainty details of some of her RTW. Ms. McCartney's Fall 2009 Collection was certainly no exception, proving that a little bit of lace goes a long, long way. I certainly haven't been one to shy away from a garment due to the price tag, but this was the first collection (with singular looks or pieces) that I could rationalize spending over 3K for. I know it sounds like a lot of money - but to me, it's an investment of a lifetime.
