Happy New Year, my dearest readers! Hope 2010 brings you all that you wish for! Hope you are spending tonight with the people that matter, and doing things that you love! Have fun and be safe, wherever you are! Thank you for your comments and emails! See you next year!
Ok, so it’s not Jake Sully aka Sam Worthington, it’s Jake Sully – the Na’vi alien. I have a thing for a blue cat-like alien. Don’t judge, he is very hot in the movie. Tall, lanky, muscular, blue…Have you seen Avatar yet?
I promised that I wouldn’t do one of those “Best and Worst of 2009″ posts, but I just cannot resist announcing Style Blog’s favorite Style Fille – Diane Kruger! I love her style on her days off, I love her style on the red carpet, I love her style walking around with her lovely boyfriend…I just find it…effortless, which to me, means a whole lot more than put together, flawless, or whatever else. Kruger and Jackson are also my favorite Holly-couple of the year (the way he looks at her…ooh la la!), and Diane was in one of my favorite movies of the year too – The Inglourious Basterds. Safe to say, she had one fabulous year! And to commemorate that, here is a walk down a memory lane in my fave photos of Diane and Joshua.
So Christmas came and went, and so did Boxing day, and I didn’t really buy anything. I simply refused to fight for things in stores, when I could just shop from the comfort of my own couch. So when I said I didn’t buy anything, I meant, not physically. I ordered three new pairs of Aldo shoes at extra 30% off online and am waiting (impatiently) to receive the two pairs (Gaser and Stinehelfer below). Alamin (above, and my favorite of the three) was unfortunately cancelled due to…? Not sure. Le sigh. I’ve been pretty obsessed with Aldo’s website lately. So many shoes that I would love to have. And with their low prices, it’s a real threat to my wallet. These are my current faves. Want to have that Alamin pair so badly! Why, oh why, did you have to be sold out, Aldo? Why my order? Why??? Anyway, hope your shopping day went better than mine.
Gaser, currently $69.99
Stinehelfer, currently $38.49
Roessner, currently $41.99

It’s finally here! December 24th! After months and months of preparation, I am finally done Christmas shopping, decorating, baking, cooking, and all that jazz. Am now allowed to sit back and enjoy the holidays. Well, sort of, since I still have to work today…but starting tomorrow, I am officially on a mini-vacation!
I hope you all are having an amazing holiday season, full of wonderful moments shared with loved ones. Hope your gifts are everything you wished for (or at least include a gift receipt)! And hope that this Christmas/Hanukkah/whatever brings you only happiness and no (or very little) stress! Thank you all for reading! And Happy Holidays!
PS. If you are braving the malls on Boxing Day…first of all, you are a very courageous person, and second of all…good luck!
So I will probably get a lot of flack for this one from the guys, but to me, this outfit is amazingness! I adore Chloë’s ability to pull anything and everything off with such ease and confidence. On me, for example, those pants would look like pajamas from hell, but on Chloë they are styling perfection. What do you think? Love or not so much?

Who doesn’t love a sale? I sure do! Once the pieces that I’ve wanted for a while and didn’t allow myself to buy go on sale, the regular rules of Shopoholics Anonymous do not apply. Common sense, really.
Got these great, comfy skinny black jeans with studded pockets at H&M and I am loving them! The waist is slightly higher than I am used to, but in the winter I am not about to bear my stomach anyways, so it works. And as you can see, I’ve been addicted to my H&M circular scarf too. It’s the perfect cozy winter accessory. And lately, I am all about the cozy.
I’m wearing: Scarf, Denim Shirt, Jeans – H&M; Necklace, Shirt – Forever 21; Boots – Guess; Purse – Miu Miu
Or does it? V Magazine’s photoshoot, featuring a plus-size model Crystal Renn head to head with a skinnier colleague Jacquelyn Jablonski wearing exact same outfits is trying to tell us that it doesn’t. But with various immature comments, criticizing Renn, or even calling Jablonski, who is 5’9″ and measures 32/24/34, ”curvy”, it is painfully clear that this industry is not size-blind.
Having said that, a major magazine, showcasing beautiful and healthy girls wearing non-sample sizes, including a shoot photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, who has once famously proclaimed that “no one wants to see curvy women”, is perhaps yet another small step in the right direction. Until then, we have these gorgeous photos of Crystal to prove, that beauty surely does come in all sizes and shapes.
More photos after the jump!
Who hasn’t received a bad Christmas gift? From bad wine to useless tools to bad chocolates, most of us have seen it all! So when I saw Style List’s guide to banned gifts (ones that will surely be re-gifted or forgotten or land you in a doghouse), I knew that I had to share it with you! The list is dead-on, and the alternatives offered are definitely much better substitutes to things like Fruit Cake (though Bacon Jam will never make it on my list). So if you still have some shopping to do, read on, and whatever you do, remember that, as cliché as it sounds, the worst gift you can possibly give is one without any thought put into it.
As it appears, messy hair, fuzzy and jersey sweaters, simple make-up, and Vogue meets PE class styling makes for an awesome “inspiration shoot”. Next time I roll out of bed and go to work without brushing my hair, I’ll be blaming Alexander Wang and his bevy of beauties.
