vagabond



We all love vintage, right? But, if we aren't Rumi, Karla, or Rachel Zoe, we don't live in it or have the ability to shop and afford it. Online vintage stores are becoming more common, but Vagabond NYC is different- it's not ridiculously priced, but they have stunning stock! I would wear everything on the site in a second. The lookbook on the page is even more gorgeous, it's better than a W editorial spread.



They're based in New York City and boasts a wide range of collectible designer vintage with a contemporary spirit. Two stylists, one a Vogue alum, use their insight on current trends and fashion history to provide what they hope is a unique vintage experience. They felt there was a lack of vintage online that was exciting, where everything wasn't $5,000, with offerings for everyday life that were on-mark. Vagabond also offers free shipping everywhere!

Another hot one. My hands are so overheated just typing this. GRAR!

just a lil bit longer

One more week, and then I can return to being a committed blogger again. I have some fun things to show off- get ready!

It's so disgustingly scorching hot in school. I've truly never sweat so much as I did today. Ech!




i love the reflection on the left!

ring rang ring

I got this awesome ring from Transformational Jewelry today. It says love all around it, and it goes really well with my other rings and bracelets! I put it on immediately and haven't taken it off since.


(it's on my right index finger)

The Love All Around ring is great, and has an even greater message behind it!



[Studies] show that words such as “love” and “gratitude” can cause amazing and beautiful structures in water. If the human body is made up of 75% water, then wearing the right words and phrases could have a dramatic and positive influence on your body – all the way down to the cellular level. Using words and phrases that express the qualities you wish to develop in your life gives you a multi-faceted way of focusing your thoughts and energy.
This ring is the perfect way to focus your energy on creating more love in your life, for yourself, for your family and friends, and for everyone and everything around you. Use it to guide your emotions, build a practice of affirmation, and begin to experience more of this amazing quality in your life.
Hm, interesting, right? Well, if you love the ring only becuase it's pretty and looks fantastic, that's ok, too. :)

Visit Transformational Jewelry to order this ring. Huge thank you to Inna!

20090425

you're it

I was tagged by the adorable Saray! Here goes...

Rules:

1. Respond and rework: answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
2. Tag 5 other un-tagged people.

The Questions:

What is your current obsession?
Well, I'm preparing to chic-ify a dorm room, so studding, collaging, shopping for fun comforters and furniture....

If you had to wear one accessory for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Hm, I would say jewelry- either a great chunky ring, statement necklace, or long earrings. Statement pieces obviously run my life.

Do you nap a lot? Never. I go to sleep very late, and wake up extremely early, but I don't remember the last time I napped.

Who was the last person you hugged?
My friend Jasmine!

What’s my favorite dinner?
Do I have to choose just one? Fine, pretty much any Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese, or Italian dish! Oh, and a really ridiculously delicious dessert. Mmm...I love food.

What was the last thing you bought?
Two maxi-dresses from T.J. Maxx.


What are you listening to right now? OMFGG: Original Music From Gossip Girl

What is your favorite weather? Spring. Not too hot, not too cold, still breezy and nice.

What's in your bathroom cabinet? There's 4 in my bathroom...I have nail polish, hair products, vitamins, Advil, lotion... I could go on for hours.

Say something to the person/s who tagged you. Saray- you're adorable and I love your corkscrew curls! Plus, you have a rad header. ;)

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? I haven't traveled enough to answer that, but of all the places I've been, I think Florence, Italy. It's just adorable and so much fun.

Favorite vacation spot? I want to vacation all through Europe!

Name the things you can’t live without. friends, internet, chocolate, jewelry

What is your favorite tea flavor? Green tea, with nothing in it.

What did you want to become as a child? I went through so many phases- actress, guidance counselor, psychologist, and now, I want to do fashion marketing or advertising.

What do you miss? Having time to complete everything I want to do in a day. Stressless days.

What are you reading right now? Old School by Tobias Wolff.

What's your favorite brand of jeans? I don't have a favorite. I hardly ever wear jeans, so I can't be biased. Forever 21 is my favorite store, though!

What designer piece of clothing would you most like to own (new or vintage)? Only one piece?! Ahh! Well, I definitely can't pick one, but I would love these Fendi dresses I saw in Rome!


Would I live my life differently to how I do now? Sleep more, exercise more, waste less time.

What would you like to get rid of ? Things I have to do. If I only did the things I wanted to do, everything would just be easier!

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? California. Gorgeous weather, great shopping.

Which language do you want to learn? Italian.

Who do you want to meet in person? Garance Dore.

What is your dream job? Styling at a fashion magazine.

What is your current occupation? Student.

What is on your bedside table? A huge pile of magazines I haven't read yet, tissues, water, and lotion.

What is your most challenging goal right now? Finishing out my last 3 weeks of high school.

What is your weirdest obsession? Eating strangely random foods, having an extremely specific routine, and, to everyone except for my fellow bloggers, blogging! Nobody understands why I spend hours on the computer!

What are you wearing today? Black leggings and a big t-shirt. So comfortable for lounging around!

Why is today special? I'm finally posting again (I know, I know, I'm sorry!). I have time to just hang out.

What's you favorite sport? Yoga, I guess? I don't really do sports. :P

How tall are you? A wee 5 foot 1! I'm a little one.

I tag... The Encyclolydia, Stylish Wanderer, Love Maegan, Holier than Now, Happy Because, and Park & Cube.

I can answer any other questions you have!

It seems like Australia has is all- beautiful beaches, the most awesome accents, stunning people, Nemo,...and Australian Flavour, a stupendous online boutique. Sure, I live across the world, but I can admire from afar, can't I?



I receive an email from them every few weeks with the latest items on the site and how to style it. A celebrity rockin' a similar look is often included, as are other items from different stores, live American Apparel.

After seeing so many cool ensembles, I decided not sharing would just be cruel.




If I lived down under, I would totally be ordering this completely perfect vest! Someone wanna buy it for me? :)



And, of course, the ubiquitous shirt dress. I've been looking for one without much luck...and of course they have an adorable one!

Living in the states makes the prices better, but the shipping is killer. For you Aussies, visit Australian Flavour NOW!

  • Anyone know of good reward programs to earn Amazon gift certificates? I have a few things on wishlist over there that would like to come off the wishlist and into the shopping cart!
  • I plan to supply some good postage this week, but the next two weeks are going to insanely busy. I'm directing a one-act play...it's hilarious. And keeps me busy. Hang tight if I'm not giving you much quality. I need your support at this time. :)

The adorable and amazing Saray of My Idea of Fashion asked me to design a new header for her! I was so happy to do it, and after many (many!) samples, brainstorming sessions, and deciding between a statement making photo header and an equally impacting simple text header, we together chose this. Go to her site and check it out!



If any of you would like me to design you a header or help you design one, just send me an email at fashionfille@gmail.com. I love doing it almost as much as I love doing you guys a favor! :)

As I become more involved in the blogosphere and earn more experience, my tools become dated and I grow out them. Thus, I desperately need a new camera. Right now, I'm using an Olympus FE 230. I'm not sure how much I would spend, I guess under $300 or so? How much do great cameras run? I would be using it for outfit shots, in social settings, and photographing items to sell online. I would really like to get a high-tech one, but I don't really know what i'm doing... anyone have some good experience with this who can help me? Leave a comment with suggestions, and if you have any more questions or would just rather email, shoot me a message at fashionfille@gmail.com. I'm counting on you guys!
