Unflatteringly Olsens

I don't get their outfits lately? I know they were known for their 'chic hobo' look of oversized clothing (synonymous with eating disorders), but whats the deal in these photographs of late??? Ashley wearing that gray sweater just looks like some kind of homebody who never leaves the house and wears only sweats. Usually if you're wearing a really big loose top you'll team it with tighters bottoms; otherwise risk looking like a bum. Their clothing line is very beautiful, how come they didn't reflect it? I think I'm growing away from the Olsen's style lately, and following more Alexa and Chloe.
Pick up your game ladies! There's a colourful world of clothing out there, and you used to look so fabulous in them.

Chanel Clogs and Socks

I love neutral earthy colours and those Chanel clogs and the brown platform sandals with socks. Cannot wait for the cooler weather - it's been cooling down lately because of rainfall. Hurrah for the beginning of Autumn (soon) and then Wonderful Winter!

Vintage Abbey

I adore both outfits. Perhaps the second on the most, as I'm not particularly a huge fan of massive layers and clashing textures. Simplicity is my calling.

So Great S&B

Absolutely in awe of their AW 2010 collection titled "Tomorrow The Great"; and inspired by Alexander the Great and all that Roman Empire-esque beauty. They featured a lot of beading and embellishments of shells and studs giving that 'tre cool' feel that S&B always deliver. Black, White, Gold and Silver were the colours chosen (swoon) making each piece very wearable and classic S&B style.
 The jackets are amazing; and those cut-out-bolero-style-tops are so adorable (must buy!)
Standing Ovation!!

Backup Your Stuff

People - one word of wisdom from me: 

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU BACKUP ALL YOUR FILES (photos, movies, music, memories) onto something other than just your laptop (ie. websites, external hardrives). Mine crashed (thanks VISTA) and I lost, everything. All my old memories from years and years, documents, movies, music.... the only thing managed to save was all my University files (lucky). So please make sure you upload your photos onto personal websites (ie. Myspace, Facebook, Photobucket, Tinypic), I lost all mine, except for the ones uploaded onto those websites (thank god I love to upload photos). Needless to say I was incredibly DEVASTATED, my poor boyfriend had to deal with my sobbing for an hour. I pulled myself together and realised that I should have known better than to trust a laptop as a sole memory device. I will forever print my photographs and upload them to external websites for safe keeping.
Much love,

Dearest Alexa,

Please don't ever change. We adore your taste and whimsical ability to make anything look chic. You aren't some bimbo with fake breasts or fake tan or fake personality. Please keep up the brilliant work of always being yourself.
Yours truly,
Cat & Liz

I took this personality test on SimilarMinds.com; these were my results. I've taken the same quiz about once a year over the last 4 or 5 years and it's interesting how much the results change from year to year. For example, when I was 15- I found I was a lot more reckless, immature, disorganised etc. than I am now-- possibly because I have matured alot over the years. I have always had the same level of creativity and the need for artisitc expression and I also usually have the same result in my dislike for authority and being controlled. However my independence and orderliness has definetly risen. There are other fascinating tests to take on this site as well. Love Liz. x

Teenage Dreams

This photoshoot reminds me of when I was about 16, especially the bedroom photograph. Teenage rebellion; Tallulah Morton does it well.

Romeo, Romeo

Such an inspiring and beautiful film....


Currently addicted to Weeds, its an awesome show-quirky & hilarious. Love the guest appearances from M-k & Zooey Deschanel.

Eric Clapton,
and Otis Redding.

Alexa for Madewell

Alexa Chung debuted her collection for Madewell and boy it didn't disappoint! I love every item in the collection; and that's a rarity for me! Can't wait to check out the prices of items. Velvet is definitely the next 'IT' fabric. Definitely getting alot of wear from my brown velvet vintage blazer this winter (too hot lately)
