This just might be one of my favorite looks from all of NY's Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear Collections. And, surprisingly, it's from Kate Spade.
But I guess my attraction to it is not so surprising, given this piece from my own Fall 2012 Senior Collection:
What can I say? I'm all about the trend forecasting.

Whenever I hear people speaking in a different language, I often think about how beautiful it sounds (French, Spanish, Italian) or how interesting and complicated (Chinese, Thai, Arabic). Which then leads me to think about how ugly and flat I find English. Especially American English. So I've always wonderdered, how does English sound to non-Engish speakers?
Well, here's a short video called Skewl that tries to show just that. I'd say it seems pretty accurate. Sadly, it only confirms my thoughts on the language.
Spotted on Cup of Jo.

Away from loved ones this Valentine's day? Why not send them some love in the mail! Oh Happy Day! has a simple tutorial for these adorable Mailable Valentine Garlands. Just cut up some letters, string them, and post!
P.S. A new year's resolution I just decided on is doing more of my own DIY's on weekends. There's a whole world of arts and crafts projects out there and I need to get my hands dirty more often.
A little glitter and glue does that heart good.

Fun Fact: St. Louis has the second biggest Mardi Gras celebrations in the world. WOO! So to accompany such an event, I decided to try out my new Mily Makeup Simply Liners eyeliner stickers, both the winged purple liner and the more eccentric ones, paired with a jeweled bindi sticker and some gold leaf.
I was worried they would feel stiff and uncomfortable but surprisingly once they were on I couldn't feel a thing! I didn't have to worry about smudging or rubbing off, and at the end of the day I peeled them off and set them aside for another day. I would highly recommend them- I received many a compliment from my fellow Mardi-Gras-ers.
