Don't get me wrong I love reading the Pipline, it's a daily ritual of mine. However, amids my usual routine i came across this post. It goes on and on about these cut out leggings by Black Milk, and I started laughing to myself. I was extremely amused at this point and naturally clicked the link to see how much this so called "new look" for leggings, according to Pipline, was going for...50 dollars? really? The reason why I found this post about Black Milk so funny, was because about hmm I'd say about a month and a half ago at least I made these. And by these i mean the leggings. Now I didn't sew the leggings myself or anything but I bought plain black ones for about 12.99 and cut them myself. I have been meaning to post a picture of them but have been seriously slacking in taking pictures of my outfits. Now I know I should hurry up and post my pictures before someone else says they thought of it first. ;) Moral of my story, I highly suggest you do the same and buy cheap ones and cut them yourself, rather than spend 50 bucks.

Ayush Mahesh Khedekar, from Slumdog Millionaire, and leading Indian actrees Nisha Harale-Bedi wearing a Mont Charles de Monaco limited edition "Lady Chérie" handbag in red satin on the fourth day of the 62nd Cannes Film Festival. Former Miss France Rachel legrain Trapani has brilliantly decided to wear a limited edition “Lady Eve” clutch in black satin on the red carpet on the fourth day of the 62nd Cannes Film Festival. Mont Charles de Monaco handbags are so classy who wouldnt wanna sport one on the red carpet?
'Pepper and Pistol' is a women's wear line that's major focus consists of prints and feminine cuts, all pieces have different details and finishing. The name 'Pepper and Pistol' (and might i add, the first thing i said to myself when coming across this line was "what a great name!" no lie!!) comes from a German tale that embodies the combination of two elements FASHION + GRAPHIC creating something innovative, wonderful, and absolutely beautiful. If you didn't know already I'm a sucker for vintage circus, i would kill to work on a retro circus inspired fashion shoot. So as you can imagine i died when i came across this line, having my very on vintage circus inspired clothing in MY closet! its a dream come true, is it possible to fall in love with clothing? or should i be asking-is it normal? hahahah

Nothing says summer is on its way, more than a Popsicle dripping down the side of your hand. Model Agnete Hegelund watches as the Rocket Pop slowly melts with make up to match. Photographer Jason Nocito rich and vibrant colors makeing this shot even more eye poping. This idea is so clever I just can't get over it! photocred: Refinery29.com
This past weekend I discovered the best vintage stores in Philly... Sioux Zanne Messix

My dear friend, Ariel (below left, and her friend Emily right) created a awesomeeeee outfit that was to cool NOT to post. She designed the outfit at a college called West Chester Community College. Ariels assignment was to make an outfit entirely of recycable materials, "Going Green" in a high fashion way. "the top is made out of duck tape; my friend had a tank top on so i just duck taped the hole thing and tucked her strapes in; the belt is made out of a garbage bage; and in the back which you cant see theres a huge bow; and the skirt is made out of newspaper which i glued to the garbage bag belt then wrapped it around her waist;and the bow is made out of some kind of wax paper (the white part) and the inside of a cheese it bag (silver part) and the middle is duck tape" To be quite honest, this dress is far better than the project runway episode with the same challenge. GREAT JOB ARIEL! looks awesome! model: Christina Berardi

These 3 stores i went to, talk about hidden gems!!!!!!! i'll post ALL about it first thing tomorrow! i have to alot of picture taking to do... untill thennn... xo
