I'M BACK I'M BACK I'M BACK!!!

It's been such a long time coming, I've been complaining to my poor boyfriend about missing blogging and fashion in general. The whole move back home to Canada was pretty hectic especially with the stops in Fiji and LA. Fiji was amazing and relaxing, but in LA we got lost going to a lot of places so it ate up the time I had there. We didn't get to see and do as much as we would have wanted, but I know I'll be back again soon.

Landing in beautiful Fiji.

Sheraton Resort, Denarau Island, Fiji

We got lost and somehow ended up on the pacific coast highway on the first day.

I really wanted to go to Ketchup to see what everyone was raving about on "The Hills", but they were closed for supper due to a quiet night so we ended up getting drinks at the bar. It really is nice inside the whole place glows!

The Scene on Hollywood boulevard.

View from Griffith Park

Venice Beach!


Flying out of Chicago on my way home, I got some great shots, amazing how well planned the city was!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After a couple of weeks of looking around we found this great apartment right downtown. I gave it a bit of a makeover and now I think the place is really starting to feel like home.

BEFORE






AFTER




------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway, onto what I've really been missing out on this last month, celebrity fashion! I love all the inspiration that the Olsen's provide for me, how do they do it? I guess when you have millions of dollars like they do, it's not hard to look good. What I like is that they they mix cheaper to find pieces with high end ones. The main thing I've learned is that I need to do more is to accessorize, it really seems to make their outfits.





------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nicole proves that just because you are pregnant doesn't mean you can't look stylish. She's been looking better then ever . If you look at what Nicole wears it's always simple pieces, stuff you can easily find at your local mall. That's what I love about her style, how acheivable it is.




------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

love the Photo shoot Lilo did for her Tango movie, her look is very Bridget Bardot and the clothes are gorgeous, she hasn't looked this good in an age. But I bet there's a whole team of people behind her running around to make this happen.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Though Keira has a bad case of the verbal diarrhea, after the Olsen's I admire her style the most. She's always flawless, and hardly ever makes a fashion mistake. She would look better though if she ate a little. It always looks like the clothes are wearing her but she's not wearing the clothes (Image 2).



^ I want black boots like this!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After disappearing for a while, Mischa Barton is back on the scene. Why doesn't she just stick to modelling? She's better at it then acting. I'm a little turned off that she went back to blond, the brown hair made her look more regal.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I thought this post needed a little trash. Just when I thought she was changing her ways and looking better...


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nobody does glam better then Beyonce. I'm kinda over her style though, it's always the same I'd like to see her in a nice casual outfit.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I love Bow Wow and Omarion's style, I'd actually wear a lot of their clothes in my size!

As beautiful as Alicia Key's voice is, I've noticed over the years that this girl has no fashion sense. It started out okay with the top half, but then she had to ruin it by giving herself an almost camel toe. Didn't she look into a full length mirror before she left?

I'm really starting to like Rumor Willis style, she's really improved the last few months, but was ruining it with that ever changing bad hair of hers. Thank God she got herself a weave over the week, big improvement.


Mahalo fashion,
Jen

Huge Post!!

-I love the pictures from above
-and the before-after of your house, it definitely looks cosier!
-and what in the name of lord is Alicia Keys wearing??lol
-Mischa Barton sucks for changing her hair
-I dont think that Keira doesnt eat, its just her body type.
-Nicole's baby bump makes her look so much healthier, and has not stopped her from being stylish.

MENTAL (Sage) said...

she does..and thats the bad thing because lots of times what she ends up wearing, just isnt right..

deexdeexdreamer said...

yay! im so happy ur back!

misha's blonde hair isnt half of it, did you see that horrible cowboy-poofball contraption she wore to her premiere? it looks like without miss zoe, mischa hasnt a stylish bone in her...bones!

p.s. yay for cropped biker jackets!

Jay Cam said...

atlanta social said...

Those Fiji photos are amazing.

The Clothes Horse said...

And you're back with a BANG! Yay!
I'm loving Keira's choices (finally someone realized that Rodarte had an amazing collection). Nicole is being a great stylish momma. And Beyonce is b-o-r-i-n-g me.

Kaye said...

hey babe- SO GLAD to see you back! Sounds like you had a fab time! I've missed you...

the Olsens style is quite interesting and quirky but I love Kiera's 3rd and 4th pics. Such good menswear influence!

Jen (MahaloFashion.Com) said...

MENTAL (Sage)- yeah i can't believe she dyed it back, she looked so much better as a brunette as for alicia i don't know what's going on with that girl!


deexdeexdreamer - I haven't seen it but I'll look for it now!

Jay Cam - I hope I get to visit there someday too!

Secret Agent said...

Jen! How's it going? Man...I've missed you and your blog and you comments. It's great to have you back. Cause, even tho I know not much about fashion, I still read your blog and enjoy it quite a bit.
You went to Ketchup?! Did you bump into an old rival and order them drinks, but was later rejected? Haha... your apartment's looking awesome!

coco said...

YEY YOUR BACK!!!! THIS HAS MADE MY WEEKEND!!!
I really really missed your blog! I can't belive you went to LA that is sooooo exciting, its where I want to live, I'm not ashamed of the fact I am completely obsessed with the American Dream
I would love to live exactly like Nick and Jessica in Newlyweds (excpet obviously with better clothes and a less cheesy husband!)
you must have had an amazing time
Also Mischa's shoot kind of bothered me, she's back to blonde now but still isn't looking any better
And Beyonce looks horrible for every event I think, but her casual style is ok.
And your apartment looks lovely by the way, very cosy!
x x x x
oh and the project has actually already gone up (it was the 50 best dresses of the year)but there is actually something else going on now which I will email you about!

coco said...

Oh wow.We can see that you've got a lot to say after those weeks. It's like you've collect all those words and pictures to give us all that back that we've missed all the time since then.And you did it well, Thank You for it :)

Hey! I love Mischa, the Olsens, and Nicole Richie. Tara Reid has not changed at all- She's even hosting a party that is fund raised by a porno company.

Beyonce really does need to switch it up. She always has on the same sorta style, it would be refreshing to see her in some kind of glam sweat suit.

Great blog!

fashion evolution said...

Welcome back! It's great to see your getting settled in and I'm sooo jealous that you were in Fiji, amazing!

Lynn said...

Lucky you!! Pics of Fiji are amazing. You're apartment looks well on the way. Post more 'work in progress' pics ;)

Romeika said...

Welcome back!!! Nicole looks so good, i should save all of her pics and then someday, if I ever get pregnant, I could copycat her heheh kidding ^^

Keira has a great fashion sense, but I also agree, she should eat!!

Hailey said...

I totally agree with you re: the Olsens and accessories, they are affordable and make a huge diff! I always add one more before I leave the house (but wasn't I supposed to take one off....?). Scarfs and huge necklaces are the best!~

jellofer said...

Wow, those are some great photos, especially of Fiji (I'd give ANYTHING to be there right now)! And thanks for the comment on my blog :)

I'm kinda amused that I am also "Jenn, 22, and a Canadian" as well ;)

Miss Woo said...

You are back! Yaaay, where would I be without your dose of Olsen pics;) The more I see those Wayfarers, the more I want a pair..
