This blazer is a purchase from Chinatown. The stores name is Amsterdam, and they don't have a site I can link you too unfortunately; however, it does give you a reason to go to New York! It only cost me $20!

So yesterday Elisa and I went around in search for some cute outfits for our trip to New York City tonight, and we came across the H&M Garden Collection. I've heard about it and have seen a few pictures from their look books but wasn't all that impressed; however, when we got there last night I couldn't look at anything else! Every piece in the line is so cute and floral and girly. Above are a few of my favorite pieces. I was kind of bummed they didn't have the strapless red sweetheart dress but there's always NYC! For those of you that aren't familiar with the Garden Collection, it was just revealed last month and it is an eco-chic line made from recycled polyester, organic cotton and organic linen.

With the warm weather finally arriving it's time to sport those sexy summer shorts! Above, theres a few tips on what styles better fit your body type. All of the shorts shown are from anthropologie (one of my favorites), jcrew, and saks. My personal favorite are the pink pastel bermudas that you can find over at Anthropologie! Also make sure you check out the exclusive video over at vogue for the latest in the trends for summer shorts (with lots of cute picks from h&m)!

If I told you I wasn't a sucker for leg warmers, or anything dance wear inspired, I'd be lying. When I put on this yummy grey sweater it reminded me of the days I spent in ballet, layering my warm ups and tights and leotards. The cozy, casualness of dance attire has always made me feel at home. So when the stars aligned-mysteriously perfect fitting sweater, rainy, grey skies and the never tiring desire to cuddle- I chose to channel my ballet days and pirouette in the rain.

I was so happy to finally see that the Sex and the City 2 trailer came out the other day! I've been watching them for years and have been waiting for the second movie for whats seemed like forever. The preview and the fashions look like its going to be even better than the first (you won't even believe what ex-boyfriend Carrie runs into)! So heres a quick peak at the trailer for all you fashionistas !

I love creating unexpected juxtapositions, like this combo: a frilly blouse vs. a menswear inspired vest and bf jeans. I wanted to be warm on this rainy Spring day, but I didn't want to compromise cuteness. So I wrapped my legs in jeans and brought interest with a detailed top and a funky hair-do...something I usually skip. Take a good look at the bow on my blouse, its right where a man's bow tie would be...subtle huh? ;)
I loved my girly '50s inspired feather hair clip! I got it in a goodie bag! I go to school with the girl who made them, Talia. She said it was super easy! Just glue a few feather on a big hair clip and...tah dah!

You know those little shops and diners you randomly stumble onto and they end up having amazing food and you wonder why you've just now decided to stop there? Well this past weekend I was on the Southside and I've heard alot about this restaurant called The Zenith, I finally decided to stop in to try it since I was passing by and I have to say if you havent went yet this place is a must! The Zenith is an art gallery/ vintage shop/ restaurant so what's nice is while your waiting for your food you can shop. The other thing about The Zenith is that they're menu's all vegan! The restaurants even filled with funky antique decor that you can buy right down to the chairs that your sitting on! I decided to get the peanut noodles with almond french toast (and blueberry topping!) with a cherry iced tea, even if your not vegetarian theres something on the menu for everyone, you can check out the menu and hours here! Theres been alot of great reviews from the place such as the one that was on sweetcakesandmilkshakes.com which used to be based in Pittsburgh, so make sure you stop in to try it I promsie you wont be disappointed!

One up and coming designer to watch is Jason Wu. You may have heard of him, not too long ago he got a lot of attention when Michelle Obama wore one of his gowns on the inauguration night. Here's a peek at his Spring RTW 2010 show; the collection features very electric colors and abbreviated hemlines. Wu wanted to recreate casual, everyday pieces of American sportswear: like the denim silk rompers resembling the 40s, and the tulip skirt with a black tee, and the striped multi-colored Swarvoski crystals. Designers are all about reinventing the 40s, but Wu does it awesomely!
