Alexandra Grecco

I'm happy as a clam! Why is that you ask? Well, because I discovered the utterly delightful Alexandra Grecco line. That's why! The second I caught glimpse of this collection I was hooked. I can't help but feel like it was made for me. It spoke to me in a way that only those who appreciate the art of fashion can understand, and Alexandra definitely speaks the language. She had "[an] unyielding desire to encourage women to play dress-up in their everyday lives" and the result is this beautiful clothing line. Her collections embrace femininity and etherealism, a perfect combination for making a woman look effortlessly radiant.  Visit her website, blog, and shop! I assure you, you will not be disappointed.

R.I.P Elizabeth Taylor

"My mother say's I didn't open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring. I was hooked ever since."
-Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor, one of Hollywoods most beloved stars, passed away Wednesday. CNN reports have stated that she was "hospitalized six weeks ago for congestive heart failure, a condition which she has struggled for many years." It is difficult to sum up a woman of her stature in a single post. She holds the record for the most appearances on the cover Life magazine. Elizabeth's magnetism was undeniable as she led her life in the public eye, but there is much more behind those violet eyes. She was a star at the age of 12 after her role in MGM's National Velvet (1944) and then went on to become one of greatest movie stars of all time, receiving Oscars for her roles in Butterfield 8 (1960) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf  (1966). Off screen Liz was known for her love affairs, married eight times but most notable to actor Richard Burton. With all this publicity it comes as no surprise that she was one of the most photographed women in history. Due to her grace, elegance, and personal style Liz became the style icon of her generation. She admirably used her notoriety to bring awareness to a number of charitable causes, and pioneered the campaign again HIV and AIDS. Elizabeth Taylor catapulted into fame; she is a legend, and legends never die.

Jarlo Spring/Summer 2011

Thank you Becky from FluorescentPR for introducing me to Jarlo's lovely Spring and Summer 2011 video Campaign. The video quite obviously peeked my interest, so I spent sometime reading about this charming collection.  "Jarlo is inspired by a love of beautiful things and a passion for collecting beautiful things." Bold and vibrant prints with a soft feminine pink deliberately dispersed throughout the cohesive collection. I want a few of these summer frocks to add to my wardrobe! They are adorable, are they not? Click here to visit the Jarlo website.

Lauren Moffatt Spring Summer 2011

Lauren Moffatt and her partner Rob Pepin met at Philadelphia College of Textile and Science, and launched their first vintage-inspired collection. Yeaaaah! Way to represent Philly Universities! She calls this season's lookbook "The Honeymooner and What She Packed". I can't stop sifting through this collection, and imagining myself in these outfits. I am a sucker for a soft color pallet, feminine-doll-like dresses, and socks paired with heels. This is my ideal Spring/Summer wardrobe. I am thinking about saving up and buying something... the only problem is it's going to be impossible to just pick one garment!
