Take a Knee

...is what Grandpa would say just before telling me the silliest story that made no sense at all.

Okay that's a lie.  The only knee I sat on was my mom's best friends gorgeous son when I was 7, and Santa whom I never believed in in the first place.  If I did sit on Grandpa's knee however, I'm sure he'd be rocking a more masculine version of this adorable cardigan from Leifsdottir.

Pretty sweet right! The mix knits are so unique giving it a bit of an equestrian feel.

Tracy Reese is killing me over here...

not because that <----- photo is so damn blurry.. and I apologize for that, 

         but for the cutest, modern retro
I love her however for decently pricing them, both at $178.00 each.  They're from her Plenty line and they are  lovely!

 (but found it @ Mintjulep.com for $170.00! :)  ehehehe)      http://store.shopmintjulep.com/plenty-by-tracy-reese-intarsia-v-neck-sweater-in-multi.html

I Just Wanna Luv Ya......Baby

Lordy-be... Justin Timberlake must be doing something right with that label William Rast because these boots are pretty amazing!

Obviously I have a type when it comes to shoes and boots..ie.. I like them either Black or Congac, and I guess these aren't that much different from my usual...however,

are we noticing the wing-tip detail at the toe!!
GENIUS!  Man... I need these ones!

Talk about a sad attempt!

Almost everything about this dress is boring with an exception to the draping in the back and ruching on the shoulder.  The front is so hideous and the color is drab.. it's pretty ridiculous.

Sweater Etcetera

Man I love a good sweater.  I'm aware that the last night I praised on it was pretty much the same color as this one by McQ, however different detail.

                                                      I love a good cable knit sweater

and this one has all that I could ask for and more.  I'm normally not a fan of any kind of asymmetrical design, but this one doesn't irritate me as much as others have in the past.  I'm pretty sure it has to do with the knit.

So Goregous.... gotta have it!...which means I gotta wait for a sale!

One Word


 Whether these fuglies by Derek Lam, or these ones below  by Won Hundred being sold @ NeedSupply.com for for $270.00.                                     
It doesn't get uglier than this.  Just because the big designers are doing it doesn't mean it's fantastic.  I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who feels this way. Lets be honest editors.. these shoes are crap.

There's Hope Yet

I'm all for saving the planet and finding sustainable ways to live.  Eco fashion however has not proven to be a hit unless you have the resources of Stella McCartney. Usually I see a pullover, a tee, some loose fitting pants that look like they should only be worn to a Woodstock concert.  So obviously when I saw this trench coat below...
...I was pretty surprised. It actually has style!, and the military design with it buttoinging on the side is so cute. It is brought to us by Covet and is available at ShopFutureStandard.com     If you heard of the website you know they're all about doing good for this earth and are a memeber of 1% For the Planet.  You can currently get it on sale there for $190.95...do you part!

Shades of Grey

Oh 126King... it has been sometime.  Fashion Week is over and since I'm not cool enough to be invited to anyone's fashion show..hint hint John Galliano...or at least Gwen Stefani.... I will be doing my usual sweep of all the shows pictures on Style.com. Sad I know.. but it's all I got.

Today I'm gushing over the cutest Embroidery Beaded Dress from Forever21

I'll admit, this dress is pretty impressive for a low end trendy brand.  It's from their Love21 collection which explains the maturity of the dress.

The length is perfect for a 
summer bbq and it can be uber dressed up with a banging pair of heels and maybe something draped over the shoulders.  I am seriously loving this dress!  $37.80 ladies.  It is on my list.
