chanel and daria

chanel s/s 2006

chanel f/w 2005

I'm pretty sure that Chanel's f/w 05 and s/s 06 campaigns are my favorite ads of all time. The backdrop of new york for fall and the cleanliness and palm trees of LA are the perfect settings for each season and daria's simple yet striking beauty seems to flawlessly fit in with the usual Chanel acetic. I've stolen the fall ads out of my catalogued Vogues and Bazaars in order to have them framed in my room... somehow I never get sick of them. Ere go my decision to post them, for my and your personal enjoyment.

spring fever

bombastic balmain: rocker-chic touches i'm dying for
totally wishing these were the Chanel ones from resort 2007...
it's pretty obvious what these are channeling... Christophe Decarnin is my hero.
these are kinda amazing... and perfect price for a style this loud
zippers, grey and black, pockets... what more could a girl ask for?

phenomenal pastels: totally loving blush pinks and nude accents

american apparel denim skirt in light apricot... perfect for dressing up or down
so needing this bag: ideal for beach bumming or toting my work essentials
the trifecta of skirts: tulip shape, high-waisted, zipper closure. done.
minorly obsessed with this tank: alexander wang in front, VPL in the back, wonderfully brought together by MK&A. oh if i only had $200 to drop on a tank top right now...


spring break mentality

living in florida gives the illusion that i'm perpetually on spring break: the weather is beach-worthy 95 percent of the time, palm trees everywhere, and flips flops are the most preferred and socially accepted form of footwear donned by most inhabitants. Unlike most floridians, this michigan native still clings to her ankle boots and black tights when the weather even so much as hints at being under 65 degrees. however, it has officially become that iconic time of year for people who choose to live outside of the tropical bubble: spring break. While i only graduated college a mere 2 months ago (wow it feels like longer) i almost feel like i'm too old to try and blend in with the plethora of college kids now invading my town. Luckily, my best friend jesse comes in two weeks to visit therefore giving me license to indulge and appreciate the beach bum lifestyle. Until then i'm depending on these pictures to help put me in the spring break mindset.
