just. wow.

kelly wearstler’s accomplished quite a bit–playboy “playmate of the month”  turned big time interior designer and now, fashion designer as of spring 2011.  of course, being married to brad korzen of viceroy hotel group doesn’t hurt either.  my company has worked with her studio on a few viceroy properties and i’m especially a fan of the the 7th floor of department store bergdorf goodman.  i forgot to visit the last time i was in nyc, but i will make sure to go this february when i’m there.

she’s really translated her hallmark whimsical style into fashion apparel successfully.  but her marketing team especially is doing a fantastic job.  the  upcoming look book shot by jamie beck of from me to you fame featuring kelly framel of the glamourai notoriety in malibu is just stunning.

i apologize for the many photos, but there are a lot.  and there are so many good ones.  and what would a nod to jamie beck be without a cinemagraph?

and speaking of jamie, how cute is this post on her other half?

missoni for target complete lookbook

the complete lookbook was posted on their facebook page.  in addition to the pieces i liked and posted previously, i also like these:

sweater

skirt, even if it's plain

kimono top thing

bottom right, like happy socks

the striped one

top right brush bag

clips

bobby pins

these are for girls, but i like them better than the women's version

another pretty pillow

love these

fiery!

frame on the right

art prints

cute stationery

still cute

as i expected, it’s mostly the house wares and accessories that i like…and the stationery!  i think i’ll pick up at least one scarf, the shaker/martini glass/tumbler set, the pillows, the frame, the set of art prints, and some stationery.  what’s everyone getting?

the collection hits stores september 13th…this will be a popular one.

high fashion meets high art in christian louboutin’s fall 2011 look book

i’m loving (and geeking out over) christian louboutin’s fall 2011 lookbook!!  this lookbook, which is photographed by peter lippman, is inspired by classic portraiture style and features recreations of iconic paintings.

art history is one of the few classes i got an a+ in college so i’m pretty stoked.

i want to shop

i’ve been wanting to buy some wide leg trousers for so long now.  why is it so hard for me to find the perfect thing?  with the 70’s in style, i would think it’d be relatively easy for me to find a good pair.

this is my first time playing with the shopstyle look.  it’s not exactly the perfect outfit i have in mind for my wide leg trousers (whenever i get them), but pretty close.

 

i’ve never understood why it didn’t list every piece…but in case anyone’s wondering: tom ford sunglasses, j. crew cuff, alexander mcqueen knuckle duster, and mcq wide leg pants.
