love this diy turbanish-headwrap!! my friends posted it on my fb wall and it is a def must recreate!! check out the instructions here it is super easy to make! [imagine it in all black velvet... !!!!!!]
my fav is the first one, from Anarchy Street that's $102. the second one is from f21 obviously the more wallet conscious version. i'm in the works of making one myself, hopefully it'll be done soon and i'll post pics!

2. Orlando Bloom
i dare anyone to tell me this man isnt amazingly gorgeous especially in Pirates at Worlds End.

my girl Kadie was promoted last week to store manager...CONGRATS GIRL!!! so a few of us decided to go to an art show to celebrate...but never made it there, had a few beers and a lotta laughs though!!! :)
top: lf (sale) ; jean shorts: ag ; hat: anthro ; lipstick: kat von d, backstage bambi ; shoes: target (old)
after seeing these shoes over and over on countless of other bloggers, on websites, and in stores, i feel that i just finally need to give in and own them! the Jeffrey Campbell "Lita"- they come in 11 colors that are all fabulous, but i think i would go with the brown...they look fantastic on and i have read many reviews about how comfortable they are. try on at your own risk!! ;)
saw these on solestruck but i know they are also sold at lf stores, for try-on and fit purposes.
just doing the usual blog checks for the evening and one of my favs, Gemma from "Fade to Black" posted one of the many articles that her and like 7(exaggerating not really but...) of my other fav bloggers were posted in...check it out, if you havent read these chicks blogs already get on it! they have great style and ideas to get inspired by!
speaking of inspiration, during my lunch break today (while freezing my butt off in our arctic breakroom) i became obessesed with the fact that Alexander Wang has a bag called Angela! (my name incase you didnt get that) im sure im very late with this news but i have just recently became a fan of his. I need to own this!!!!
i am also in love with these flats....
flats by Valentino, $975 ; bag by Alexander Wang, $650
so excited that it is officially fall! although we dont really have a change of seasons in florida its nice to know the heat will soon be gone!!! took Rex for a walk the other day and had the bf take some pics of my fit! :)
through last month and this coming month many Anthropologie stores will be hosting an event called Sit, Stay, Love. An event to help animals in shelters that need and deserve loving homes to be adopted. I work at the Anthro in Boca Raton, FL and our event is being held this Saturday from 12-4pm. We are working with a local non-profit organization called Chesed Rescue and hopefully we will find homes for these dogs! If you live in the area, or even if you dont, check out your local Anthropologie and see when they are hosting their Sit, Stay, Love event and spread the word! The more people that know about it the more possibility there is for adoptions! <3
so after months of seeing one of my fav bloggers, Gemma from Fade to Black wearing Kat Von D's lipstick "backstage bambi" i finally bought it! i tried it on in Sephora today during my break from work and decided i had to have it!!!!
i love the bright color and with lots of eyeliner it makes a really cool and easy-to-do look! ;)
lipstick: kat von d- backstage bambi @ sephora $18
i live in South Florida so this passed weekend a few of my girlfriends and i decided to take a day and a half trip to South Beach! we had a blast, we stayed at the posh Gansevoort hotel on Miami Beach and had lots of good food, drinks, and laughs! we also saw Busta Rhymes at the roof-top pool [random i know but i was so stoked!] and we tryed to secretely stalk and snap pics of him :) Saturday night we had dinner at STK which is a restaurant inside the hotel. they have great everyday american food with a bit of a "fancy" twist added to it. After dinner we went to LIV which is the popular club down there that is inside the Fountain Bleau hotel and ended at Louis which is the club inside the Gansevoort. Warning: South Beach is tons of fun, it is not fun for your funds $$. here are a few pics from the hotel of drinks, busta, and food :) ill post outfit pics when i upload them!
