Acne Paper Sweden Cover - Issue 12

There is something magical about this cover.  Anais Pouliot's face is captivating surrounded by messy pulled back hair and a classic black turtle neck.  No doubt, all of Acne Paper's covers are intriguing but this one is especially mesmerizing, a stunning example of how beautiful simplicity can be.

Accordion Pleats

Accordion pleats are so beautiful this season. They look simply fantastic billowing in the wind.  I'm especially drawn to those of a midi or long length and always with a high waist.

2012 Resort Color Trend Report: Yellow

Personally, my favorite color is yellow so, needless to say, I was very pleased to see so many entire outfits in the 2012 resort collections centering on this color. Although, ironically, I can't say that I actually own any yellow clothing.  Below are some of my favorite yellow looks, but my very most loved piece is the first dress by Pucci.  I would love to incorporate it into my wardrobe to add a little bit of bright to my style. Which is yours? How much yellow do you wear?

China Numéro # 9 Cover Shoot - July 2011

This amazing shoot features the gorgeous Du Juan Photographed by Tiziano Magni.  I would have never associated grace with fishnet tights but this former ballerina is extremely alluring in these shots exuding extreme grace, confidence, and elegance.  There is such an exquisite delicacy to Du Juan and I'm hoping to see much more of her in the future!

Cynthia Rowley's 2012 Resort Collection

Below are some of my favorites from Cynthia Rowley's 2012 Resort Collection.  I especially love the dreamy yellow skirt paired with the simple shirt.  And what's not to love about the quirky dinosaur theme.  Dinosaur tooth necklaces, background dinosaur mural by Josh Smith, and semi-creepy dinosaur attack lookbook.  Check it out on here website
Also, I just realized that I chose only the looks modeled by Marina Jameson over Kat Hessen....very strange!

Also E.L.F. makes a great stain that gives an awesome matte effect.  Just use without the included gloss!
