Some essentials for spring include rompers, stripes, pastels, feminine ruffles, lingerie and lace! Heres some picks all for under $100 (for students you get an additional 10% off your purchases) and all from my favorite store topshop! Excluding the splurge which is a beautifully designed shoe by Valentino, as you can tell I'm kind of a shoe addict!!

Paint it Black
Following the huge success of White Oleander, Janet Fitch has written another best seller. This one is set in the 80's LA punk rock scene. Josie Tyrell, art model, teen runaway, actress in student films, thinks she’s found her chance at real love and entre to a greater world in Michael Faraday—artist and Harvard dropout, son of a renowned concert pianist and grandson of a legendary film composer--until the day she receives a call from the Los Angeles County Coroner, asking her to identify her lover’s body. “What happens to a dream when the dreamer is gone?” is the central question of Paint It Black, the story of the aftermath of Michael’s death, and Josie’s struggle to hold on to the true world he had shared with her. Compounding her grief and rage is Michael’s pianist mother, Meredith Loewy, who returns to her native city with the news of her only son’s death. Despite a fierce mutual enmity, the two women find themselves drawn into an eerie relationship reflecting equal parts distrust and blind need.

So, finally Forever 21 is hopping on the bandwagon and getting their first designer collaboration, and I was super excited when I found out that it's with Brian Lichtenberg; he's one of my favorite designers! He has an eclectic style, incorporates funky cutouts, and uses out-landish designs. He's very popular among celebrities too; they range from Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, and Lindsey Lohan to say the least. You may also know him for his recent design in the new Lady Gaga ft Beyonce video "Telephone," he designed her "caution tape" outfit. No news is set on an exact launch date, but it's said that they will be announcing it in the upcoming month! And above are some of my favorite peices, make sure to check back for the launch dates!
1. Padded one shoulder mini dress
2. Hooded sculpted glitter dress
3. Padded one should glitter dress
So even though I'm a little late, considering the movie has been out for a couple weeks I FINALLY got my copy of The September Issue today in the mail! The documentary revolves around the making of the Vogue September Issue 2007; and I have to say that it was way better than I thought it would be, if you havent had a chance to check it out I highly advise you to do so!

So Friday was the Renegade fashion show at Altar bar. With a mash of art, music and fashion, their mission was to bring art of all medias to Pittsburgh while bringing relief and peace of mind to Haiti. There were several boutiques and designers that took part in Friday night's activities, that I wish I could share them all with you! But for now here's some highlights from Fridays show!
While browsing Flikr, I came across this amazing artist. When I saw this piece I was totally inspired! I love the loose, fun spirit, the bright colors and dreamy quality.
And look at this fun, young beauty; with her shoes kicked off and the tea in her hands, it's representative of the feeling and lifestyle of Fashionista Barista. A mix of fashion, spirit, food and life.

My favorite part about Spring is that I can finally dust off my dresses and start wearing some floral! Anthropologie is one of my favorite places to shop; if I were looking for something new these would be my picks. If you're weary of bold floral patterns, choose a dress with a cute floral applique or add a cute floral bib necklace [just like the one in the upper right corner]!

Diors equestrian themed Fall RTW 2010 show was gorgeous to say the least. It featured ruffled pink chiffon dresses paired with brown leather thigh high boots. One of my favorite peices from the show was the oversized cardigan - coat, that was threaded through with blue satin ribbon, that's actually featured in the above picture on the bottom right.
