In the Dead of Winter

Music Update--
[top left] Regina Spektor (Us, Eet, On the Radio) -
Love, love her. Her voice is very unique and her easy melodies will have you singing along in not time. The song "Us" was featured in 500 Days of Summer, which has the BEST soundtrack. Worth checking out.

[top right] Emiliana Torrini (Jungle Drum) -
This song is amazing. She also has other songs that are very easygoing (different from this jammer).

[bottom left] Ashley Tisdale (Crank It Up) -
I know what you are thinking... Ashley Tisdale? But, her newest album was a shock to my system. Though I previously liked her song "He Said, She Said," on this album, I liked the majority of the songs. It still is a typical Disney star album, but in an enjoyable way. Great party song.

[bottom right] Keke Palmer (Bottoms Up) -
.... and Keke Palmer? This song is perfect for parties, which is crazy to be coming from Keke, but I'm not complaining.

Other Notables-
[1] A Fine Frenzy

My Newest Favorite Things--
Flickr Widget  [apple download]
Being an avid Mac user, I love clicking through the newest widgets. When I saw Flickr on there it caught my eye immediately. Now, every time I open my dashboard (obviously to waste time on Soduko or building amazing domino tracks) I see a collage of some great Flickr picks. Love love love.
500 Days of Summer    [imdb]
This movie is AMAZING. It made me laugh and I want to memorize every single line so I can use it in everyday conversation. The soundtrack is playing nonstop and I'm going to see it for the second time today =)
Schedules came out for the school year (already) and with my double math/science courses I have a feeling I'm going to be dying this year. Fun fun fun... 
At lest I know what I'm wearing on the first few days already. =) Oh the greatness of working at a clothing store...

Summah Time

Teen Vogue's Elana Fishman           [altamiranyc]
Don't these make you want to have a tea party on a beautiful day?
Well, that's what I thought of.
I was really excited when I saw the Moschino Cheap&Chic e-mail in my inbox. I clicked around and yes, they 
do have some adorable pieces, but otherwise I was unimpressed.
Left: Women's Full Length Jacket ($459)
Right: Women's 3/4 Length Dress ($597)
(PS- I'm not sure who is going to want to spend $192 to have "Moschino Cheap&Chic" written across their chest. [link] )

Meg&Dia are awesome! I can't wait till their next album comes out. Lately I've been listening to Setting up Sunday + Cardigan Weather all the time. Hope you enjoy =)

Spring is creeping out...

Design Sponge    [link]
OMG. That's really all I have to say. Today was the most AMAZING weather. I went rollerblading for about an hour. I would have gone to the beach if it wasn't so freaking windy in Ocean City. Anyway, all in all, a great day!
Lulu's new items (as of spring 09)   [link]
Love Moschino sandals   [link]
Hope the weather around you gets as great as it coming to around me! Ciao!

The Black Mannequin!

Angelina Jolie looking amazing in Paris.    [x17]
The City-
This episode was GREAT! Such a cliff hanger... mentioned on Fashionista + New York Magazine.
-Why is Olivia just SO cute in the
furry vest? She's probably the only person that can pull that off. 
-Allie is really pretty. I really don't know why I didn't see it before.
-Whitney sure does get into a lot of stuff, but I felt like Olivia 
was a little cold when she said to stay out of it, even though 
it probably would have been better than confronting Jay(?).
-I think Adam is full of crap. Allie, come on.
-I really wish the episodes were longer. So much left hanging over...
BTW- LOVE this from NY Mag.
Recent Purchase-
I'm SO excited!!! I just bought a full-blown mannequin! When I saw it on ebay, I just needed it. I can't wait till it comes and I can dress it up. (Is that weird?)
I feel horrible for Alexandra Tomlinson who fell at the Chanel show. Here are a few of my favorite pictures of her:

Inauguration Day!!! (+ The City Update)

Inauguration Day 2005      [source]
When I checked my e-mail this afternoon, I opened up this cool link to this wordle of Obama's speech. I'm really glad we were allowed to watch it in school! So here it is:
The City-
1- Erin's coat in Central Park is gorgeous! I LOVE it!!!
2- Whitney's grey sweater headband is not very attractive at all...
3- Adam is totally cute, but I'm so confused by his and Allie's relationship confuses me so much. He was so into the girls at that club and the next day he picks her up at the airport and tells her he loves her. Ugh. Then, they were SO cute together in the car after he told her about it (a very vague version).
4- I'm still iffy on them, but I love that all the girls had that talk with her and confronted her about Adam.

Vintage Couture- 
I love the selection of vintage dresses, jackets, shoes, and everything else that this site offers. Clicking through, you can pretty much look into the past. Here are a few of my faovrites:
[Scherrer Tile Overlay Pouf Dress- sold]
This is on my daily click through list (I have to update my sidebar). Enjoy the collage of some cute ones:

Something old. Something New.

Morrison Spring 2009          [link]     [source]
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, everyone loves it. Ashley Banks (played by Tatyana Ali) was always my fashion icon (even thought Hillary had the attitude).  Here is a glimpse of her past fashions:
Selena Gomez-
She is probably my favorite Disney Princess (though unfortunately she did the singing thing- I think that those who don't sing shouldn't try just because they have expensive equipment to make them sound better....). At the premier of Hotel for Dogs (January 15th), she looked completely adorable and stopped to sign some autographs. Love.
Barnes & Noble-
Since I live in the middle of nowhere (our closest mall is a half an hour away), there isn't a Barnes & Noble anywhere within an hour of me. I would have totally travelled for it too, because of this bag. I don't care if it's a "knockoff," it's adorable and functional and I want it.
World's Best Bookbag- Natural+Green Canvas w/ Web Handles

The City Notes-
[Source- MTV]
(January 12th)
1- Whitney's gold studded shoes at the DVF party. Oh man. Love.
2- Chris is CUTE! (But Jay? How could she just... have lunch...?)
3- Erin + Duncan just have an awkward relationship...
4- I want Whitney and Jay to work. I really do. But, I just feel like she is screwing herself over there. (Even when he asked her to be his girlfriend? I expected her to just be happier.)
5- Jay is possibly the cutest person ever. Period. I love him. That dinner killed me... So adorable.

Here are a few of my new favorites from MINT
Martin Luther King Jr. Quote-
"If you can't be a sun, be a star. For it isn't by size
that you win or  fail. 
Be the best of whatever you are."

Enjoy the holiday. (I know I'll be enjoying the three day weekend!)

Lorick/Lover Spring Collections

Lorick SS09    [link]
I'm wishing wishing wishing for warm weather. Winter is such a bummer in Ocean City. Especially in school, when I'm staring out the window at the freaking Ferris Wheel. So, I'm ogling so many dresses that I just had to share some favorites with you!
Lover- They have such sweet dresses and outfits in their spring collection. I'm completely in love.    [Link]
(More Lorick...)
