Buckle up stylish friends, velvet isn’t going anywhere. It’s only getting brighter and more interesting with every passing day. While crushed velvet has been the center of attention for a few months, burn out and printed velvet is quickly taking over the stage. One of my favorite trends at the moment though, velvet and mesh combos.

What is your velvet inspiration?

Utopian Eyewear

denim-outifit-minneapolis-fashion-blogger denim-on-denim-look-being-zhenyaHaving been taking back roads to work for the past couple of weeks, I noticed a development, a big cluster of identical houses, and town homes tucked away behind Excelsior Boulevard. And for some reason it reminded me of Pleasantville. Even though the connection is completely off, now that I think of this whole establishment, it’s more of a Zamyatin “We” scenario. Anyways, last weekend Sam and I walked around and explored those few blocks of identical living.

It’s also this time of year, when sunglasses become more of a necessity than an accessory. And I am shopping for new eyewear. There are so many options, like these by Ray-Ban – from colorful to mirrored, I know they’ll have my eyes covered. rayban-sunglasses   I also love these Tory Burch ones, good cat eyes are really hard to find! Tory-Burch-sunglasses And, finally, I couldn’t leave this eclectic, futuristic and altogether out of this world eyewear by 3.1 Philip Lim unnoticed! 3.1-philip-lim-sunglasses Which do you like the most? Which ones would you wear? What shape sunglasses do you prefer?

Уже несколько недель подряд мы ездим на работу обочными путями. Все потому, что везде ремонт, и все перекопано! И конечно же я не могла не заметить район, состоящий из почти идентичных домов. Мне сразу вспомнился фильм Pleasantville. Хоть я и понимаю, что тут все напоминает книгу Замятина “Мы”, с ассоциациями не поспоришь. В прошлые выходные мы с Сэмом решили обойти эти утопические кварталы.

Наступает лето, а значит солнечные очки переходят из разряда аксессуаров, в разряд вещей первой необходимости! И я присматриваю себе новые. Очень понравились очки от Ray-Ban, особенно зеркальные. Отличные очки есть и у Tory Burch, хороший кошачий глаз найти очень сложно, а в этой коллекции у дизайнера несколько пар. И, напоследок, я обратила внимание на 3.1 Philip Lim – эклектика и футуризм в одном флаконе.

Какие очки понравились вам? Какие бы вы надели? Какую форму очков вы предпочитаете?

Tory Burch Diaper Bag and other events of the week!

Alright, so from Johnny Weir getting married, to the new season of The Bachelor and the Biggest Loser premiering this week, somewhere in between I found out that Tory Burch makes diaper bags! The ones that look like this:

Which I think is absolutely amazing! So if you ever have kids, dear readers, make sure to put this baby on the baby registry! Get it?!? LOL

In other news, Kim K got a hair cut! I bet $1 that these bangs are clip-ons 🙂

What? You don’t believe me that clip on bangs exist? Well they are available on amazon, and they are on sale!

And finally – out of all spring trends that are falling from Fall 2011, these two are my favorites:

Polka dots

 and bright pants:

But my favorite fashion looks still come from Lookbook.nu!

Have a good week everyone!
