what’s in, what’s out {an update!}

13 November 2009


what’s {IN}

Winning “Best Dressed” for Senior Superlatives with an equally stylish friend & counterpart!

Watching JuicyTuesday. She is, undoubtedly, one of my favorite YouTube gurus I’ve yet stumbled upon. I adore her honest and lighthearted personality, her unbelievable collection of bags (Gucci is my absolute favorite bag designer, without a doubt!) and shoes, and her makeup (obviously).

Blogging via my Tumblr, Smoke and Diamonds. Something about the brevity and clean formatting of the server is almost therapeutic.

My patent peep-toe pumps. Three inches of black beauty and pure comfort, they are undoubtedly my ultimate, to-go-to (a.k.a. everyday) shoes. I must go back and purchase another pair and its closed-toe sister, for the sole and cap of the heel are beginning to wear out. The best part about these babies? Only thirty dollars at Payless Shoe Source.

Mario’s new album, D.N.A. My two favorites are “Get Out” and “Thinkin’ About You”; both have been playing blasting (on repeat) during my driving excursions to and from school. There is an inexplicable quality of smooth sexiness in his style that makes me swoon. I suppose you could say I have harbored a crush on him upon hearing Go! and seeing him in Step Up. Le sigh.

Boys. No explanation is needed for this, obviously. (;

Experimenting with makeup. I’m still not a proponent of  personally wearing makeup everyday. But the occasional bits of dolling up are quite fun for the girly girl within and browsing through and MAC’s website keep me entertained during my bouts of procrastination.

The stylist/wardrobe director/ costume designer behind 90210. G e n i u s . Silver always looks impeccable, whilst I drool and lust over her wardrobe.

Honorable Mentions: Metrochic nail varnish; Cupcakes & Cashmere; watching incredible dance crews; my morning bagel-and-cream-cheese-with-coffee breakfast; peachy nude lip glosses; my iPod; my winter blankets.

what’s {OUT}

This ugly weather. I’m not quite a perky sunshine-all-day-everyday type of a girl; a bit of rain and thunderstorms are appreciated. But this drab grayness of random spurts of rain does seem to affect my mood lately.

So much work, so little time. Self-explanatory.

What are your in’s and out’s?

bisous, xx

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while, and its super cute! Congrats on the best dressed honor!

  2. 14 November 2009 1:13 am

    Hmm.. what’s in for me is: legwarmers, tight, Gossip Girl girl nights, face masks, wearing bright colors in winter, and red lipstick. Outs are too much bronzer, sickness, and mushy leaf piles.

    so agree on the weather being OUT.

    Congrats on the well deserved best dressed win x

    Fantastic as usual ! I agree about Silver’s style, it’s cute !
    What’s in to me is to have more time to hang out with friends and party lately !

    great post, darling!
    have a lovely weekend, xoxo

  7. 14 November 2009 10:53 am

    I agree that experimenting with fun makeup is the absolute best! Hmm as for mine…

    IN: Sunny fall weather, cozy boyfriend jeans, taking pictures, statement lipstick, vivanno smoothies from starbucks, sleeping in

    OUT: being at school until 9 for rehearsal or until 10 for performances..

    La C,
    I’ve been dying to call you Lacy for the longest time, would that be o.k.?
    Anyways……..I love the idea of those black patent pumps.
    On my “Love” list:
    Looking at the brightly colored leaves through a gray and rainy day.
    Listening to James Taylor while sipping on good coffee.
    Finding my favorite zip-up hoodie, hanging in the closet, right where it should be.

    – Belgian milk chocolate w/ almonds
    –, they have video interviews with fashionable people, it’s gotta be one of the best fashion sites on the web.

    – Writing essays, boo!

  10. 14 November 2009 1:48 pm

    hate this weather too!

  11. 14 November 2009 5:04 pm

    Love your “ins”!

    My ins: Finally being able to bust out all my winter scarves/sweaters/etc, drinking hot cider by the ocean, fall leaves, wearing my hair wavy, bubble baths, spending way to much time watching Gossip Girl + The City + 90210 ♥

    My outs: Homework :\

  12. 14 November 2009 6:36 pm

    Congrats on winning Best Dressed! My current “ins” are soft, purple eye makeup, dark nail polishes, awaiting the Rodarte for Target collection, and my favorite pair of Citizens for Humanity jeans. My current “outs” are missing camp, too much to do in too little time, and impending winter!

  15. 15 November 2009 5:06 pm

    i agree, time is my enemy too!

  16. 15 November 2009 6:34 pm

    I definitely agree with your in’s! (except the 90210 thing, I really have not watched it yet, and Im not about to start ahah)

  23. 17 November 2009 2:47 am

    I wish I can have your weather right now. My city is too warm to be doing anything.:(

    Hmmm, this is fun!
    In: All thing black and white – I die everytime I log onto Net-a-Porter

    Congrats on being Best Dressed! I fear I won’t be Best Dressed this year… I’ve worn sweat pants far too many days this year!

    Lovely post!

  31. 9 December 2009 6:56 pm

    Haha i totally agree with that bad-weather-thing! In Sweden it rains almost every day. And you get so bored with your clothing since you freeze your ass of in anything you wear! It sucks living here haha ! 😦
    Hope you are allright, i’ve missed reading your blog.

    • 9 December 2009 6:57 pm
