Trend Alert? Half-Shaved Head

I didn't like it when Cassie did it, and I'm not too sure if I like it now that Rihanna's done it. Although Rihanna's following the trend that many famous femmes seem to be doing, it actually doesn't look bad on her (but there's only so much that I can take of Rihanna trying to validate the fact that she's edgy...WE GET IT, RIHANNA!).

Now that a few ladies have "made the cut" (including Elle style director Kate Lanphear, British model Alice Dellal, Carmen Electra, and former Mtv VJ LaLa Vasquez), I've concluded that this half-shaved head look only looks best with short hair, and NOT with long hair like Cassies' (which reminds me of My Little Pony).

So ladies (or gents), if you're brave enough jump on the "half-shaved head" bandwagon, please make sure that 1) you have the right face shape to carry such a short cut, 2) you have a pretty face, 3) you have a pretty head, and 4) you exude tons of self confidence because it's going to take A LOT to pull off this do.

Blazer, silk scarf, seersucker, and great legs...what more could you ask for?

OBSESSED: Lykke Li



I don't know what my current obsession is with this girl and her music. Like everything else, I don't really have an explaination as to why I like a lot of things. But she's good, and thats all that matters.

How to Get Shot by the Sartorialist




This is sooo funny. My friend Ayesha came across this, and I think it's the best thing I've seen in a long time...the sad thing is, I may actually try it out!

Andres S.

Me being bias again...I promise for next week I'll try to find a look that's so not my style. I just couldn't resist when I saw this today. And the fact that it's titled, "Ferris Bueller will never have a day off again!" made me like it even more. Thanks Andres for making me feel like I'm not the only one out there who dresses like an 80s teen from a John Hughes film.

OBSESSED: STYLISTA, ep 1









I liked this show when it aired on the CW last Fall...thought I'd introduce it to people who didn't or haven't watched it.

It's On With Alexa Chung


Awhile back, my friend and I were watching MTV, and a promo for "It's On With Alexa Chung" came on. He asked me who she was, and I honestly didn't know. I had seen bits and pieces of her show before and it was okay, but it was nothing to jizz in my pants about. But as I watched more and more of her show daily, I began to really like the show and Alexa Chung. She has awesome style, and everyday I look forward to see what she's wearing.
Her great sense of style may be due to her being a former model for both Elite and Storm Models, and also having a successful career as a host and fashionista in the United Kingdom. Now that she's here in the United States, reviews have been mixed about her and her television show, but I think a lot of people just don't understand her sense of humor. She conducts offbeat interviews with celebs, and plays silly games and asks them off-the-wall questions.
She's also very witty, and has a dry sense of humor, which is why I think I like her so much. If you haven't wathced her show yet, you really should check it out. Catch "It's on with Alexa Chung" on MTV, 12pm everday.
*BTW- did you know she's half Chinese??

D&G S/S 2007: Inspiration



I know this collection is more than 2 years old now, but I don't care. This is certainly inspiration for whole "Indian Summer" theme. Now, if only I owned every piece from this collection...

faux pas: Christopher Kane Monkey Tee


I'm all about embracing current trends and hot, new, "it" items, but I'm sorry to say that I absolutely desteste the Christopher Kane tshirts that almost every fashionista and celebrity is sporting. I don't know if I'm missing something or what, but I don't understand why anyone would want an all-over print of a gorilla, a chimp, or a baboon on a tshirt. And the fact that this shirt retails for over $300, makes me want it even less. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Christopher Kane's work, but this is something that Idon't think I'd be caught dead in.

There's not much that I can say about this look except that I just simply like it. It's one of the best I've seen all week, and all of Andy's looks are great. Check out her blog Style Scrapbook at
