My Nail Polish Collection

I finally got around to photographing my nail polish collection. The amount I have is actually a little bit embarrassing. Also, I'm on the hunt for some kind of wall rack to organizer all of them. If you know of any let me know!

Grand Total: 86
Plus after I took these photos my room mates sister showed up with 2 gift packs of Orly polishes she had found at Winners so now the number is actually....96

Girl of the Blogosphere: An

Name: An

City: Los Angeles
Occupation: Blogger

Who is your fashion inspiration?
Who isn't my fashion inspiration?! I don't think I could ever pinpoint a specific person or even a specific group of people. I love and constantly keep up with celebrity fashion as well as street fashion. I love regularly reading fashion magazines, celebrity blogs, fellow fashion blogs as well as sites like Lookbook.nu and Chictopia!

What is one thing you always carry in your bag?

My camera. I'm obsessed with taking photos of food everywhere I eat at and you never know when you'll stumble into the perfect backdrop for a quick outfit blog post!

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
Oversized chunky knits. I've recently purchased so many, I'm terrified about finding the closet space to squish them all into! I love incorporating oversized anything into my outfits whether it's a bag, accessory, ridiculous platform or particularly right now, sweaters. They're so beautifully warm and cozy as well as very chic. Perfect combination!
What is the current trend you dislike the most?
I'm not sure there's any trend I dislike - mostly because I'm terribly indicisive and constantly changing my mind so if there is anything I dislike right now, chances are I'll end up falling in love with it later. A particular trend might not be so attractive to me but worn a different way or styled with certain peices could possibly make my heart skip a beat.

Why did you start your blog?
I've actually had many many many blogs in the past. Some were just about my daily life, some about love and others about my views on controversial topics. I've basically always enjoyed having an outlet to express my thoughts and opinions. Unfortunately, none of those stuck. I always ended up having writers block or just getting bored of it in general. Fashion has always, always, ALWAYS been my love and passion and I've followed many fashion blogs in the past. Combining the two was just plain perfect and something I enjoy and love doing. It's the perfect outlet for me to express my love for cute clothes, awesome shoes and yummy food.
Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?
My ever so patient and supportive husband takes them. I've got to give him a lot of props for enduring strange looks from passerbyers and my need to take so many photos!
How would you describe your style?
I don't think I have a particular style. My style really depends on my mood for the day. I can be extremely girly one day, preppy another and totally dark and edgy the next. I dress how I feel and what I'm in the mood for. I would certainly say my style is focused around my shoes for the most part!
What is one thing you are dying to buy this winter?
Every winter, I've wanted to buy a pair of super cute ear muffs but never get around to it. Living in Southern California, I never really have a true need for it except when I'm out late night strolling around a Christmas light enthusiastic neighborhood with friends or in line for a ride at Disneyland in 50 degree weather shivering (which is usually when I remember that I really should get a pair). This year, I am determined! There is nothing more fun that a big pair of furry ear muffs! :)
Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?
My personal style history would prove both but shoes have definitely been more prominent in my shopping habits the past few years. Actually, hands down, shoes. They are my weakness!

What is one thing that you regret buying?
Absolutely nothing. I shop from my heart (which is quite dangerous now that I think about it) so I usually love everything. If I don't, I always find a good use for it that I will love!
If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
Is this a dead or alive question? Well, to make it simple, I'll assume alive and my answer would be Sarah Jessica Parker. Sex and the City will forever have my heart.
What is your favourite vacation destination?
New York City - although I love a good vacation resort or beach, I'm much more a fan of a vacation in a big city and NYC is it. Delicious food and incredible shopping - what gets better than that?!
What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
I once wore 5 inch platform heels on a spontaneous trip to Universal Studios with my family... and I survived.

Adriana Castro Mini Carriel

Adriana Castro is a Colombian designer based out of Miami and I always manage to fall in love with something when I am browsing her website. I'm half Colombian and when I started blogging I was living in Bogota. Thanks to my heritage I always like to see a Colombian making waves in the fashion world. A carriel is a traditional satchel worn by men and is typical of Antioquia, the region of Colombia that my mom is from. I love this fun and modern take on the traditional bag. I usually gravitate towards bright colours but I think the brown python is my favourite!

What do you think?

You can buy them through Adriana Castro for $985-$1390

Butter London The Black Knight Nail Polish

I received this Butter London polish in the mail just after Christmas and I couldn't wait to try it out. I'm going to say that it looks better in person than it does in photos because I feel like this photograph just isn't doing it justice. It is a very pretty black base polish with lots of blue and pink glitter flecks. I'm a little bit addicted to glitter at the moment so I loved trying it out.

What do you think?
