There is something very satisfying about finishing a pot of face cream



If you know anything about accounting you will notice a very silly mistake I made in the second line. Haha!

Girl of the Blogosphere: Ellen H.



Name: Ellen H.


City: LA

Occupation: Aspiring law student









Who is your fashion inspiration?
I'm a bit fickle about that -- right now I'd say Freja Beha Erichsen, fashion blogger Lulu from luluandyourmom, and my always well-dressed group of girlfriends.








What is one thing you always carry in your bag?
2 or 3 tubes of chapstick. I'm always losing them!

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
I kind of love everything in red or berry right now, and i love that the deeper, more vibrant version of the classic red lip has returned for fall.

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
Wide-leg pants!! They're still around! I mostly can't stand them because I look ridiculous in them, hah.

Why did you start your blog?
To pull myself out of a sartorial rut, you could say. As I've been studying for grad school entrance exams, I've started to live in just sweatshirts and shorts and I figure if I've got a blog to take photos for, maybe I'll be more motivated to dress myself better on the daily.




Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?
One of my girlfriends, Sarah Kimbrough, and recently my budding photographer friend Stephen Chou has been using me in his photos to pad his portfolio as well.

How would you describe your style?
Capricious, fickle, comfortable. Slouchy. Lazy. I just like to look put-together with the least amount of effort possible.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this fall?

THIS carryall and THIS berry-colored bag. Marc by Marc Jacobs never does me wrong :)

Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?
Both!

What is one thing that you regret buying?
As much as I love YSL, I kind of regret purchasing the YSL Belle du Jour clutch in all black. It kind of fades out against everything I pair it with, unfortunately.




If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
I'm the fraudulent fashion blogger who doesn't reeeeally keep up with the industry itself. Is that treasonous to say? Haha, but I guess off the top of my head, I'd say Alexander Wang because he's been inventing and re-inventing this lazy model chic look in all his clothes that i just can't get over. I own a million slouchy things from his T by Alexander Wang line.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
I went to the Bahamas this past summer, and I'm in love with the islands now.

What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
I used to write for the school newspaper in high school, and I once wrote this really scathing review of Brooke Hogan's (that's right, Hulk Hogan's daughter) premiere musical venture, which I recently rediscovered in a trunk of old things. I have to say, it was quite hilarious. For many reasons.

This Week in iPhone Photos


A little treat from Lush.


What I look like after sewing class.


Do you know how hard it is to find a plain black tote that doesn't cost a million dollars? So I settled for this one from The Bay.


My first sewing sample. My lines are PERFECTLY spaced and PERFECTLY straight. (extreme sarcasm)

Essie Topless and Barefoot

This week I reached for a nude colour I picked up over the summer. I rarely wear nudes and I think it is good to change it up every once in a while. I really like this nude because it isn't too pink and it isn't too brown. It is somewhere in the middle and I think it works well with my fair skin. I also decided to take a second photo in natural light so hopefully you guys can get a better sense of the colour.


What do you think?

Girl of the Blogosphere: Popsy


Name: Popsy

City: LondonOccupation: Student
Blog: Popsy




Who is your fashion inspiration?

I'm always inspired by people I see on the streets and how they put things together on a cheaper budget, and crazy woman Anna Dello Russo is my hero! I hope I have the guts to dress like her when I'm older. My mum also dresses beautifully for her age and manages to pull off sophistication like I never can!

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?

I always carry my yellow leather notepad and a pen for scribbling down ideas and thoughts that I get during the day.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?

The polka dots at Marni and Marc Jacobs have made me very happy- wearing polka dots always makes my day a good one!

What is the current trend you dislike the most?

Flared trousers circa the 70's. I don't care how on trend they are, they will always make my legs look like tree trunks.

Why did you start your blog?

I wanted a place where I could openly be 'me' and share my thoughts and aesthetics with other like-minded people. As a schoolgirl where my day is spent learning geography and latin amongst other mind-numbing subjects, it's nice to have a creative outlet where I can indulge in just wearing nice clothes and talking about them.



Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?

My mum takes my photos, which she is still trying to get the hang of, a lot are upside down or with my head chopped off, but we're getting there! I use my brothers camera, much to his dismay!

How would you describe your style?

Inside I secretly want to be a parisian, who wears catty eyeliner and messy hair a la bridgette bardot, and dresses like pheobe philo. So I guess that's kind of my style, mixed in with vintage and some 60's references.

What is one thing you are dying to buy this fall?

Everything from Miu Miu, plus a black shift dress and some leopard print brogues.


Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?

I'm not really a shoes or a bag kind of girl. I wear minimal accessories because I like simpilcity.

What is one thing that you regret buying?

I can't think of anything I regret buying, because if I buy something but then don't get much wear out of it, I normally DIY it into something else- like a pair of bright pink shoes i DIYed into beige ones with black bows that I am now in love with- I post a DIY every friday on my blog if you're interested!



If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?

I would love to meet the Rodarte sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy. I know it sounds cliched but Rodarte is a brand that literally takes my breath away, I am in awe of them for being able to create such beautiful pieces with such interesting backgrounds and inspirations.

What is your favourite vacation destination?

The beach, but I would also love to visit Sweden because I'm in love with scandinavian interiors, and swedish brands like swedish hasbeens and Acne.

What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?

I've been obsessed with the idea of owning a dog since I was little-I used to pray to God for one when I was a kid!
