Ru la la...

I'm jealous of Rumi's collection of vintage Chanel handbags. If you're not familiar, Rumi is a fashion blogger (fashiontoast) who became so popular that she is now featured in top fashion magazines around the world. She was recently in Elle Japon (she is 1/2 Japanese, 1/2 Caucasian). She singlehandedly invented "outfit posts," taking pictures of her daily outfits and scenery. Take a look at the fashion goddess that is Rumi:

Love, Chloe*

Chloe Sevigny has been on my radar for a long time, ever since I was promised an interview with the Big Love star and then, an hour prior to the Q&A session, was notified that she was unavailable. Fast forward two years and here she is a huge tv/movie star, Golden Globe winner and fashion icon. Here are a few outtakes from her recent Elle UK pictorial. Her unconventional beauty makes her the perfect modern icon. These shots are gorgeous - fun, fresh and romantic all in one.

Kim Kardashian - Out & About

It's no secret that I love Kim Kardashian's style, but I have to give credit to her stylist, Monica Rose. Check out this flirty and feminine outfit that she put together for Kim's QuickTrim meet and greet event!

Top: Madison Marcus
Skirt: BEBE
Shoes: Pierre Hardy

I love the shoes! So fresh and modern, they're the perfect ways to anchor an overly girly ensemble. They're definitely on my wish list!

Beach Bombshelle

Can you say fabulous?? Model Hana Soukopova looks fierce in Marie Claire US in Chanel, et al. But, really, can you get past the Chanel?

One day in the future, I can see this happening: sitting at the Ritz in London, perusing my latest editorial with Karl, Claudia or Donatella, sipping on Earl Grey (I prefer vanilla caramel) and adjusting the feather flourish on my fascinator. My stilettoed feet will be primly crossed underneath my Louis XIV perch as I reach for the last scone. "Another bellini, please!" I cry to the garcon to cleanse my tannin-tinged palate, much to Unkle Karl's dismay. "A calorie is a terrible thing to waste," he says, raising a proverbial (and literal) pinky at my thinnocence. 
While those days might be a long, long time away in the future, I can get a glimpse of the potential nosedives I will take into rosebud, jasmine and dandelion-scented waters among the chicest company in the world. German novelty gift company Donkey Creative Lab has developed Prêt-à-Portea, a novelty teabag collection featuring fashion's most famous faces. The collection has been thought to have been named after the popular afternoon tea time at the Berkeley Hotel in London that serves fashion-inspired fare on designer china, natch. Across the pond, Naomi Campbell (at a lull in her phone-throwing career), Jean Paul Gaultier, Donatella Versace and Claudia Schiffer will join you for a spot of the good stuff in any setting - and won't fuss about the stale scones or flat champagne. If only they could infuse my hot water with words of wisdom, a Yves Saint Laurent handbag or a contact or two from their Rolodex...

Inside Celebrity Homes: Christina Aguilera

We're all fascinated by the lives of celebrities and often get glimpses inside their worlds, but rarely inside their homes. Their most personal spaces are so mysterious that just a little peek gets me excited! I came across Christina Aguilera's new home - I believe she and her husband purchased it from the Osbournes a year or so ago. Anywho, check out this Tim Burton-esque whimsical and macabre funhouse that she undoubtedly had much influence over. Not sure how I feel about the creepy crescent moon hanging out - disdainfully - in her young son's nursery, but a part of me gets it.
