J.Crew... About A Shoe

My BFF and I just so happen to be planning a trip to Italy this year, were thinking September... (more on that later), which is why when I came across this video I got even more excited about planning my trip.  Now if only I could get a visit to the J.Crew shoe factory on my itinerary, I would be set. I so want to be Jenna when I grow up.  sigh... watch the video below and you'll understand.

Dreaming of foggy mornings...

Growing up in Northern California, fog was something we experienced quite often.  I remember when I was little and we would make the 4hr drive down to my Grandma's and there would be times when we couldn't even see the hood of the car, the fog was so thick.  It was scary & exciting all at the same time.  There is something about fog that is so mysterious and romantic.  Fog can make you feel like you stepped into a 1930's mystery set in London on a raining night.  In my opinion, foggy nights are what dreams are made of & foggy mornings are the icing on the cake.

Green With Envy - Golden Globes 2011

Another fashion trend that did not go unnoticed on the red carpet tonight was the fabulous ladies making those in their path "Green with Envy". Angelina Jolie-Pitt wearing Atelier Versace (I have to say, I am really loving this long sleeve trend on the red carpet as well);  Elisabeth Moss wearing Donna Karen; Mila Kunis wearing Vera Wang;  Catherine Zeta Jones wearing Monique Lhuillier.

All About Neutral's - Golden Globe Fashion 2011

I have to admit that when it comes to awards shows, the Golden Globes are kind of a bore for me.  I watched for all of five minutes, before I had to switched to Desperate Housewives for a little Sunday night entertainment.  However, I have always been and will always be a fan of the red carpet! 

There were for sure a few stand out trends for the night "Lady in Red", "Green With Envy",  "Sexy in Black" but my favorite had to be the lovely ladies that were "All About Neutral"! My favorite of the night was Anne Hathaway wearing Armani... sleeves, backless and sparkles!  Need I say more.... She looked absolutely stunning.  

Sandra Bullock looked age appropriate, wearing Jenny Packham.  Lea Michele seems to have found a silhouette & designer that works for her,  wearing Oscar de la Renta. Jennifer Lopez, looked like a modern day princess, wearing Zuhair Murad.  Dianna Agron had a slight Old Hollywood  glam feel, wearing J. Mendel.  Scarlett Johansson wearing Elie Saab.  Not what you would typically expect but it works in her favor.  Then there was Emma Stone wearing Calvin Klein rocking a very understated look, the true definition of "simple chic". 

What was your favorite trend of the night?

Truly Inspiring! " A digital park bench"...

After watching this 10min mini documentary on"A Visual Life" on The Sartorialist, I was in complete aww! This is the most inspiring video I have watched in a long time! I assume you are all familiar with The Sartorialist, but if not, even more the reason to watch this mini film as you will soon never forget. Scott Schuman is a true visionary and we as in the blog world and fashion world alike are lucky to have him.  He compares his blog to "a digital park bench" from which you can visit daily and people watch, no matter where you are in the world.  For anyone who is creative and especially for anyone who is trying to create their own "digital park bench", "A Visual Life" is a must see.  Do yourself a favor and take 10mins out of your day and get inspired! I promise, its worth it! 

Now I just need to figure out how I can get on The Sartorialist?  A girl can dream, right?!... If like me you dream of being approached by Scott one day and not because he needs you to move out of his shot, then read below.  It just might land you a spot on The Sartorialist one day, you never know. ;)

Yarn & Needles.... Christmas Holiday Hobby

Knitting, crocheting, which ever you fancy... playing with yarn has become some what of a Christmas holiday hobby for me.  For the past few years, when I go home for Christmas, my first stop always seems to be to pick up some new yarn at the local craft store.  This holiday was no different, except for the fact that I started a little before the holiday this year.  

I am totally in love with this knitting editorial for Vogue Girl Korea, October 2010 via dustjacket attic , which served a my inspiration.  But lately I have to admit I have been way more in to crochet.  It sounds a little more old lady I know, but  it just seems to work better for me and if it works for you then that's all that matters.  

Check out my "Yarn & Needles" pin board over on pinterest for more knitting inspiration! 

Here is a pic of my latest creation, which I am super proud of!  I crocheted this lovely beauty using three different yarns, crocheted as one.  In then made it long enough to wrap around twice and secured it with four real wood buttons to create a cowl effect.  I also secured the inside with clear buttons to keep it all in tack.  I think it turned out rather lovely, for an amateur!   What do you think?

Now for the New Year  my goal is to learn how to follow a pattern and create something a little more advanced... a hat perhaps or maybe some really cute socks? The possibilities are endless!

Quote Of The Moment...

Here's to believing in dreams AND making them happen! 

Happy New Year 2011!
