One thing I love about being an adult is the ability to design and decide my own vacations.
You see, I’m turning 28 in August of this year and after much deliberation and doubt and a whole lot of “I’m too old to celebrate my birthday” thoughts, I have decided on not only WHAT I want to do for my birthday but also on where I want to be.
And that where happens to be in the desert. Palm Springs to be exact. The crazy hipster haven of The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs to be even more so.

Just picture it. Sun, fun, drinks, cabanas, fire, food and poolside shenanigans. Baking in the delightful haze of cheeseburgers and frozen liquor treats. All this and more I could not resist.
Now there’s only one thing left to do, chickens.
Plan the outfits!
Get ready for the hot, hot heat!
It’s Wonderful Wednesday.

Living in Los Angeles amongst both the rich and the famous, I am presented almost daily with a double edged sword of delights and disappointments.
We have amazing restaurants with amazing food that are sometimes so amazing you have to wait a fortnight before you can actually eat in them.
The streets are littered with beautiful women and the odds of seeing an actual celebrity can go from slim to none to almost unavoidable with the change of a zip code.
And, most importantly, we have every shop you could ever want and every shop you could never afford to actually shop in.
One of those shops just happens to be one of my favorites.
One of those shops is Chanel.
Even though I love the crisp, clean lines and posh quilted loveliness this super luxe brand has to offer, I’m in no position to pay super luxe prices.
However, through the wonders of Forever 21′s copy cattish homage items to Chanel, we can all indulge our silly desire to look like skeleton puppet genius Karl Lagerfeld’s dream girl.
Leatherette Rose Bag: $19.00
If you can’t afford Rodeo Drive, why not just take a stroll down Front Street?
Take a walk with me, ladies. It’s Wonderful Wednesday. Continue reading
Everyone seems to be up in arms over Zooey Deschanel right now. Maybe it’s the overload of her kewpie doll cuteness now on full display in “New Girl” that’s brought it about.
Maybe it’s the baby voiced, chunky banged, big eyed wonder she seems to live inside. But whether you want in to her kitten filled world of cotton candy rainbow clouds and farts that smell like fresh blueberry muffins, or you just want to strangle the shit out of her, odds are you probably have an opinion.
As for me, I’m torn. Part of me is insanely jealous of her seemingly innate ability to be approachably beautiful. And yet another part of me feels like gouging my ear drums open with a blunt breadstick when I hear her bored baby talk voice.
But there is ONE thing I DO love about Zooey (with two o’s for EXTRA “awww”) - here unabashedly out there affinity for all things adorable. Which brings us to today’s special post topic,
“What Would Zooey Wear?”
Floral Bow Ring: $3.80
The cute is coming. Continue reading
