Inspired by the Grand Gallery of Evolution at the Paris Natural History Museum, the new windows at Louis Vuitton looked back to prehistoric times to compliment it’s new pre-fall collection for their flagship’s windows.
Perched alongside casted dinosaur skeleton replicas, handbags and women’s apparel are shown in a way that captures a sense of whimsy and heritage that Louis Vuitton is known for. There are 7 dinosaur skeleton windows in all.
French Vogue has a slideshow that documents the whole process from concept to completion. It’s a remarkable project and the ending result couldn’t be more engaging. (more…)
It’s the easiest look, but it really packs a punch.
The math is simple. 3 Pieces is all it takes.
Classic+Classic+Pop = WOW (more…)
The great thing about fashion is that it’s inspiration is never limited to just fashion. Designers and stylists seek inspiration from a wide variety of sources.

Summer time means more than a few hours spent wiling away the sunset with close friends and great beer.
Have you ever seen such a beautiful bottle opener?
You could almost wear it as a pendant. The futuristic simplicity of this tiny bottle opener is so refreshing.
It’s a bottle opener made for summer evenings.
It’s just hitting the high summer mark, but part of the fun of summer is getting excited for next year’s resort fashions.
Misha Nonoo‘s Spring 14 Resort collection is the perfect mix of urban-sportstar and Cape Cod- Preppy. A rare combination, but totally refreshing.
Throughout the collection, there’s a great use of stripes, and sheer stripes, and peplums that makes the whole collection very wearable, yet futuristic and fashion forward. Who would have known this is exactly what I want to wear all (next) summer!
The Fashion Oscars are tomorrow!!

The awards honor outstanding achievements in fashion across all areas of the market; journalism, creative vision, lifetime achievement, menswear, and womenswear. To win a CFDA Award is to solidify your place in the heritage of American fashion. No small feat.
While the awards are tomorrow, check out my picks for the big awards. (more…)
Summer style is best when the defining feature is it’s effortless. On a 90 degree day, it’s simply all about ease.
Well, that…and not melting.
A couple pieces of clothing and sun-kissed skin is all you need.
I want to spend every day in the summer wearing the most basic of silhouettes, with just a bit of washed color. I’m particularly smitten with these dazed reds. They’re just bold enough, but have a softness that almost makes them feel neutral.
Following a serious case of post-adventure blues, I’m finding my pictures to be even more beautiful now then when I took them.

It’s rare for me to lust after objects.
Let alone a handbag. (more…)
One of the best things about May is new record releases that seem to always fit the change in season from Spring to Summer.
The new EP from Wild Nothing, Empty Estate, is that perfect end of Spring album.
It has elements of rainy day dream-pop, but a new energy that matches the ever improving weather. With 7 songs, Empty Estate is the perfect dose of fresh tunes.
You can listen to the whole album on Rdio. Make sure to check them out this Summer as they tour with Local Natives.
