huff and puff

this OAK candle is so intense. there are four aromas. and one scent is suppose to be a lovely mix of tar, gasoline, alcohol and paint thinner... here is the site for the bold and insane.

NYFW, so far

i'm here. in NY. for fashion week. Fashion's night out was totally crazy. in not a good way. the idea of bringing fashion to the public is amazing, but the hassle and craziness requites 3 tequila shots, minimum.

here are some of my favies from the 2 days of NYFW thus far:

 gary graham, nahm
peter som 
 cushine et ochs, yigal azrousel 
jason wu

yigal optic color block dress

as you all know, i love yigal azrouel. i've been stalking the optic-color block dress from their spring 2011 season and to my sad heart, i could no longer find it on their website.

so i'm sending out the SOS. any ideas were to track down this baby?

karl lagerfeld for macys

i never doubt chanel. but i had great hesitation for karl lagerfeld's collaboration with macys out later this month. though the pieces don't have the same luxury as chanel, there are a few pieces that i wouldn't mind adding to my wardrobe.

 tweed zipper dress, $129
 tweed collared dress, $129
black shorts, $79

it's all about the dress

just moved into my new apartment this week. ah, it has been a journey. my uhaul was broken into in florence, south carolina. what did they steal? my gps and my ginger ale. what? i now have an extreme love/hate (mostly hate) relationship with ikea brooklyn.

for now, i'll leave you with pictures of celebrity weddings. since ms. (soon to be mrs.) kim kardashian is getting hitched today!

missoni for target

target household items always have a place in my heart. especially those with designer collaborations. i want all of the items below. all of them, even the bike. i could learn to bike in the NY streets in heels. (okay, but the bike would look fabulous in my studio). fashionologie released the full lookbook here

nail-spiration

i love nail polish. i just wish i had the talent and patience to pull off these nail masterpieces, because i always feel weird getting a manicure. i use my hands a lot, so my manicures will not last more than 24 hours.

crystal clear

i'm so excited with my new apartment, moving day is rapidly approaching. i'm getting really into clear furniture. at first i thought it looks very uncomfortable. but they are really starting to grow on me. super modern and clean lines.


other things i'm lusting over: this adorable dog house, or rather doghaus, from bowhaus nyc.
my dog would really be adorable in it, n'est pas?
