A SURPRISE

LITTLE FINDS
I went for a little bit of general thrifting at the Salvation Army today and came accross this great Givenchy bag/large clutch. It doesn't have any straps so I'm going to use it as a clutch, I hope it's real.



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

NARCISO RODRIGUEZ RESORT

The orange dresses don't feel very resorty to me, but i like them regardless. I could find something similar at Le Chateau, perfect for a night out with the right shoes.

STELLA MCCARTNEY RESORT
I love sail boats and birds, the whole nautical look. I've been looking everywhere for ages for a nice sail boat dress, but I haven't been able to find any. I've been looking for one for so long that I'm tempted to save up for this Stella McCartney one, maybe I can find it on eluxury?

The pants with the stripes remind me of a police uniform, but I like it. I suppose you could do a legging with this kind of stripe?


BURBERRY PRORSUM RESORT
SAME EXPRESSION?
Tyra would not approve, why does that model have the same horrified expression in every picture?


She's so tall, combine that with her expression and I might be scared of her coming to attack me in the night.

H & M FALL WINTER 2008









What do we think? The individual pieces are quite beautiful and well structured.

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

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY IN TATLER


She looks a little less snotty for once and like she's having fun. I like how colorful the pictures are, these are great.

Oh my, I wish I had the confidence to wear neon leggings like these!



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

BILSON - DKNY


Rachel is modelling the line she designed for DKNY. I can't wait to see some good pictures of it.

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


LINDAY LOHAN IN
LOUIS VUITTON SPRING/SUMMER 2008


I really like this outfit, I wish I could own it for work.



She really needs to dye her hair dark again, she looked much more beautiful and normal.

CELEB LOOKS


KATE BOSWORTH
Love the red Chloe boots!

I heard Orlando wasn't into her high maintenanceness.


M.I.A.

I really love her dress here, this mint green color is universally flattering.


KATE MOSS
In Marc Jacobs.


KATE LOST SOMETHING...
She needs to keep her shit glued a little more tightly.



SPEIDI
She cannot be fucking serious about that top. She's practically posing for the camera's in those pictures, I mean this is the girl that gets paid for fake 'candid' photos of her and Spencer. RIDICULOUS!


LINDSAY LOHAN
I like her simple gladiators.


ALMUDENA FERNANDEZ
OMG, I love her dress, but you have to have a small chest to wear it the way she does.


ALICIA KEYS
This is the best she's looked in a long time, normally she can't get it right to save her life. Maybe she finally hired a stylist?


HEIDI AND SEAL
There are so many different style gladiators out right now, I want a black pair like Heidi's.


MISCHA BARTON
I think she could lose the boots in the first picture they remind me too much of Britney Spears. I don't mind both overall looks.



DITA VON TEESE

She speaks for herself.


JENNIFER LOPEZ
I love the whole flower in the hair look, I remember when it was really trendy a few years back. I wore it a lot when I was in Fiji last November, now that it's summer I might consider starting again.


SELITA EBANKS

This is the perfect combination of gold and pink.


ASHLEE SIMPSON
Wow her baby is really growing.


JODIE SWEETIN

Wow she just had a baby two weeks ago and she's already on the red carpet? In a crappy dress no less? Maybe she's trying to make a point that she got her bod back.


ALEXA CHUNG
She can do no wrong. I don't know if her bag is vintage, but it's quite cute.


LILY ALLEN
This outfit with the skirt would have been really cute if it wasn't for the flip flops, but I'll forgive her since she just got her nails done.


MOLLY SIMS

She looks like she belongs at a party in Mexico. Cute though.

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^aww thanks, that's so sweet.

Miss White said...

That feathery head/ear thing that Keira is wearing looks amazing. Your bag is a great find too, fingers crossed it's real!

JuliAM said...

h&m?! wow. how amazing is that little gray dress?!
i hate heidi lol...if you want more privacy i'd suggest you stop inviting the paps to staged photo ops

coco said...

I am really not into the pink hair on Lily, I wish she would go dark again.
And I am in love with the Stella resort collection, I want it all!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi jen-loving your post!! I would say this bag is for certain genuine-I used to wear Ysatis perfume by Givenchy years ago and perfume houses are in the habit of making bags as giveaways-this one is an absolute find, I love it!! I also love the marc jacobs on Kate!

Siljesfashion said...

Such a great post. First out, great finds! H&M has some great stuff for fall per usual. Heidi, such a bore. Funny with the pictures of the Olsen transformation. Love the dress Fernandez was wearing,so etheral and sexy.

sara said...

That's one really nice clutch.
I agree with you on the Stella Mccartney sailboat dress, it's so nice!

x sara o

hannah said...

i love that clutch! it is very chic and classic. im quite jealous right now.

jellofer said...

I am definitely looking forward to the fall stuff at H&M (of course) and so I hear H&M is FINALLY opening in Ottawa, you must be excited!

That thrifted Givenchy bag looks hot!

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

^ Oh believe me, I'm over the moon. FINALLY.

Nay'Chelle said...

Givenchy find: Amazing! Real or not I would use it

Narcisco Rodriguez resort: Beautiful pieces

Burberry same faces: Wow, that's pretty funny I hadn't noticed that.

H&M Fall/Winter: I must find a way to get to an H&M. Those were gorgeous. They need to have an online store, the closest to me is 3 hours away in Canada.

alloftheabove said...

Great clutch!! Don't you love scoring things like that? It's a great feeling!

miss hautttefashion said...

keira knightley does look a lot less snotty.

okay so i had a dream last night that i was cleaning out my closet and i found a a pirate style treasure chest! and inside there were lots of clutches, like the one you found.
haha it was a weird dream, maybe its a symbol for something..

Make Do & Mend said...

Good thrifting!
Can not believe KM looked so good - good old MJ he does a mean dress! Love the hair bit tho....

deexdeexdreamer said...

beautiful beautiful clutch!

CoutureCarrie said...

Fantastic post! I am so glad that super bright leggings and tights are still on trend for fall. Great Olsens montage! Big kiss, CC

Ida said...

The clutch is absolutely fantastic. I love every little detail of it!

And for the first time, I actually like Lindsay. It can only be LV's fault:)

Jenny H. said...

you have the besttt posts.
so much information in one post!

lovee the rachel and kiera pictures.

(R)evolver74 said...

Love the overall H & M looks, but really need to see everything in-store.

Giselle said...

That bag/clutch is really cute! I'm sure even if it's fake, if you can't tell no one else can either. But good job with that find! :-P
also...gotta love the olsen twins. I don't care what anybody else says! haha

She's Dressing Up said...

Love the clutch, MIA's dress and Misha's fringed, purple vest!

Savvy Gal said...

Know what you mean about Burberry ads but love the classic pieces. : ) I just found 2 bargain Burberry dresses from Neiman Marcus today.

said...

I love your clutch! I got a Vintage one a few weeks ago for $40 looks almost exactly the same as your but it isn't Givenchy, unfortunately. But pretty still. Can't wait to use it on a night out.

Thanks for your comments by the way. They put a bright smile onto my face! :)

Times of Glory said...

The clutch looks really good! I adore vintage bags, very classy! God, H&M gets more and more high fashion, at least their ads look like so! I really like those colourful and pretty pictures of Lindsay Lohan in Louis Vuitton xxx

Danz said...

First of all, fantastic clutch! It's just beautiful!

The Burberry model needs to work on her expression but her legs go on forever! I love the outfit with the long trousers!

The pictures of Keira are colorful but she does not look like she's having fun! She looks a bit lost actually...

Is it just me or does Lindsay totally look like Megan Fox in the first LV picture?

I love MIA's spirit and style! She's so fun, love her!

Heidi Montag is a colossal waste of time.

Alicia's skin looks a bit strange to me but I'm not sure why.

Dita looks flawless, I'm always amazed that she does her hair and makeup by herself.

Emily said...

Great photos! Though SJP can typically do no wrong in my eyes, I absolutely adore Julianne Moore's ankle boots! As for your question as to how I landed a gig at Teen Vogue, I basically stalked the HR department for my entire senior year in college and finally convinced them to interview me! It was an absolutely fabulous job with lots of perks so if you have any other questions, lemme know! Also, you've been linked :)

The Stylish Wanderer said...

heidi and then cassie.

The olsons could be very pretty if they didnt stick out their lips and just smile regularly, they look like aliens with those big glasses

SKYLA said...

your blog is so good just keeping up with the celebrity style/news etc. i'm not into buying all the tacky magazines but your blog makes it fun without the tackiness.
anyway, i swear ashlee S. only just announced she was pregnant and now she's got a speed bump under there! times goes so quickly...

Imelda Matt said...

They were crack heads in 1991 and they're crack heads in 2008. I just wanna slap the mong right out of those twins!

Dani said...

The Givenchy clutch is a really great find! And I love the bilson dkny!!

alloftheabove said...

i loveeeeeeeeeeeee the bag. good find!!

<3 AC

copperoranges said...

I heard MIA isnt performing anymore! Shame shame! I agree there are so many diff types of gladiators .. I like Heidi's as well.

WendyB said...

Great post.I love those Chloe boots.

Daphné said...

I love the Olsens!I was just watching an episode of "Two of a kind" the other day, I used to LOVE that show when I was 14 or 15!
Alexa Chung's outfit is gorgeous, you're right : the bag is really cute!

Carolina Lange said...

I love Stella McCartney's resort collection!
