Pencil

I love pencil skirts. They are a good go-to when you aren't sure what to wear and they tend to make your butt look fabulous. Today, I'm highlighting some pencil skirts that go beyond basic.I love the color on this Robert Rodriguez skirt. The leather coating is pretty cool too. This would make a simple white blouse stand out. I love Loft because there is always a sale and they have a great petite section. I like the snakeskin print on the Loft skirt. It's cotton so it'll be comfy too.

If you read this blog with any frequency, you know that I love anything that sparkles. It should come as no surprise that I adore this ASOS skirt.

Do you like pencil skirts?

Stripes

A friend came home for his spring break and I wore this to see him.Top- Forever 21, Skirt- Dont know, Bag- Marc by Marc Jacobs,Shoes- TargerI really like this bag. I'm borrowing it from my mom because my usual bag is broken. I love the shape on it. I tend to use rectangular bags so the round shape is a change.
I think stripes and leopard look great together but I tend to think anything looks good with leopard.

Joan

Joan is my favorite character to watch on Mad Men. She's a pretty cool lady and has wonderful clothes. In honor of Mad Men's return I'm counting down my 5 favorite Joan dresses. 5. This is a cute little dress and I love the scarf draped down her back.

4. This is her Christmas party dress. I love the color and the bow in the back.

3. She doesn't usually do prints. I think the applique on this is great. This dress looks wonderful on her.

2. That collar is fantastic.
1. This is the prettiest dress. When you think of Joan Holloway you picture her in this dress.

I really love how the green extends to the heel on the Ralph Lauren sandals.
The snake skin effect on the Miu Miu shoes is awesome.

Anna Dello Russo

Anna Dello Russo is the creative director of Vogue Japan. I know a few personal style bloggers don't read magazines but I think you guys will love her. She's kind of the anti-Wintour. Dello Russo takes risks and has so much fun with fashion! Her style may not be accessible (she wears runway looks and has a separate apartment for her clothes) but she sends a message of wearing what makes us the happiest. Whenever I feel uninspired in my dressing I tend to look towards her. I love this Prada look! She even has the tail light shoes. This is from Dolce & Gabanna. The dress is wonderful but what really sells the look is her smile.Anna Dello Russo is known for her hats. I like this one because it uses her initials. Feathers and yellow need I say more?
Who are your style icons?

Fashion Feelings

When I saw the hand printed dress from Diane Von Furstenburg for Fall 2012, I fell in love. I was also instantly reminded of the hand pants from Comme des Garcons Fall 2007. Sarah Mower describes the pants as, " an adolescent's dream of a virtual boyfriend." Why can I remember these pants after all these years? I guess it's because they make me feel nostalgic for something I've never had.

In my mind the best clothes make you feel something. Clothes from the runway can make you feel excited because you never seen anything like it. Or you could just gasp from the beauty of a couture gown. Vintage makes me feel nostalgic for a "simpler" time. I couldn't have lived back then; I have an old soul but I am no domestic goddess. Clothes I own have memories. The dress I wore when I was disappointed, the outfit I wore for Gaga, the dress I wore when people threw their trash in my bag. Sometimes when clothes have bad memories, you may forget what you're wearing and not connect the two or you can try to make a new better memory in the clothes. I guess what I'm trying to say is fashion isn't frivolous. It's connected to us emotionally.

Do you have any clothes that have memories attached? Good or bad?
