Rachel Bilson can do no wrong. I fall even more in love with her wardrobe every time I see her. Did I tell you I ran into her at a Halloween pop-up shop? Gaaaahhh! I think I blushed while trying to keep it cool and not get caught checking her out. I tower over her both in height and width. I imagine her wearing this dress while hosting a fab dinner party using these vintage plates in her gorgeously glam, girly place.

Dress Love

5 Oct


{ring, ring}

Hi, can I speak to Rachel?

Who is this?

Irene. I have a blog.

{dial tone}


{knock, knock}

Rachel. Rachel Bilson. Rachey Rache, you answer your own door. So humble.


I came to ask if I could have your dress. And be your friend. And maybe make-out. But I completely understand if you’d just prefer to give me your dress. I knnoooow you’re never going to wear it again.

Don’t look so scared. I’m harmless. Really.

Uh, I don’t think it’ll fit you.

But you don’t even know how moderately hard I’m working to lose my excess mom hips. It could fit.

Besides, aren’t you beyond flattered that I would hunt down your house? Cute door, ps. It matches the dress, I want you to give me.

I like Your stILe

8 Apr

I needed to reload on concealer and headed to my nearest department store to acquire some. The one I usually wear was out of stock and so I had to purchase a different one. Sometimes I think the person behind the counter makes this up so they can try to sell me more make-up I don’t need. According to this salesperson, I was told the area around my eyes were dry and recommended I buy eye cream along with a new concealer. As she applied both items, she said to me, “I like your stile. It’s cute.” She seemed pretty genuine even though she may have only said this to try to upsell me. Either way, I was flattered and took it as a compliment. Her comment reminded me of all those who I think have great stile and figured I should document this in a post.

In no particular order, here are those chicks who, at some point or another, influenced the way I dress.

Olivia Palermo: She was singlehandedly the reason I continued to tune in to The City. Whitney Port’s stile came in at a very close second, but it was Olivia’s classic stile that made me wish she was the star of the show.




Nicole Richie: She was the first person I caught wearing the coveted red sole. If I remember correctly it was when she was headed to court. Yup, personal issues aside, her slingback Loubs made me go out and purchase knock-offs and put her on my personal fashion radar. She was the master of headbands and scarves.




Even in a simple white t-shirt and jeans, she looks chic.


Ashley Olsen: Growing up, I watched TGIF every Friday strictly for Full House. Never did I think little Michelle Tanner would be one (two) of the most influential stile icons of my generation.


She makes it look so easy.




Rachel Bilson: I was never a fan of The OC, so I don’t really remember how I became a fan of Rachel Bilson’s stile. All I know is I love how simplistically stylish she is.




Miroslava Duma: Before finding out she was a Russian “It” girl, her stile stopped me in my tracks and had me search for more outfit posts. I love the way she can transform herself from youthful girl to completely classy, elegant woman.





Show Your Stripes

1 Mar

I just realized I have a strong affinity for stripes. I get all goo goo ga ga when I see a black and white striped shirt. Sometimes I even venture out and buy blue/white, navy/red, or gray/black.  I’ve had several in my recent life and tend to gravitate toward more as soon I see a display of them inside a store. I haven’t quite figured out the reasoning behind it nor does it really matter, I suppose. Clothing wise, I prefer horizontal stripes even though they must be worn with caution (don’t wanna look too wide now). But indoors, I sway toward vertical stripes as they lend a more sophisticated look.

I share with you some fashionable horizontal stripes and some vertical stripes for the home.

The ever so stylish Kate Moss in Balmain.

One of my other stile icons, Rachel Bilson. I would wear either outfit in a heartbeat.

Ashley Olsen always knows what’s up.

Wearing my striped tunic from Zara.

As tired as I am of the belt-around-the-waste look, Kate Moss makes it work

’cause, well, she’s Kate Moss, but not cinching it bothers me less.

And now for some vertical stripes.

A striped sofa – marvelous.

The striped roman shades add that extra punch to this otherwise mellow room.

Beautiful entry. Could those stripes be any more crisp? The zebra pattern adds a great extra element, making things more interesting.

A whole lot of dizzy going on. The mix of horizontal and vertical stripes prevent one from going entirely crazy.

If you’re not ready to take the plunge into striping your walls, a

headboard is a fun alternative.

What a lovely photograph. These stripes create a circus tent-like experience without the raucous.

Remember this vignette I created a few posts back?
