-- a bit obsessed--

SJP knows where it is! She showed up wearing the impeccable duo of McQueen and Treacy at the Sex And The City premiere. ( I can't get enough) The perfect no fear fashion to mimic  that of Carrie Bradshaw.  Bravo.

yesterday i posted a blog on philip treacy and his gorgeous hats. well today , to my utter excitement, i found an article that announced a movie about isabella blow, treacys muse. isabella was a fabulous fashion icon until her tragic suicide. she was associated with vogue and from that she became assistant to editor-at-large andre leon talley and hob nobbed with some of the most glamorous people in the world, including: best friend alexander mcqueen, andy warhol, daphne guinness, anna wintour, and joan collins. her story is epic, and her fashion prowess was flawless. her passions inspired  her growth but they also tormented her. i hope this film portrays her with justice.

--introducing taryn--

 I met Terese a while ago at work and we became friends in fashion.  I miss seeing each other’s outfits every day and sharing tips and giant fails that we have seen recently.  I’m into classic and classy fashion; and no, they are not the same thing.  Ruffles, polka dots, bright colors, wings (NOT to be confused with butterflies), and flowers are my staples.  I also have an embarrassing v-neck t-shirt addiction which I have vowed to remedy this year.

 I love many things and call everything my favorite.  I’m going to school, running a lot, and just being me and constantly redefining who that is. But I have three big, fabulous loves: my husband, my car, and diet coke...so, here are a few of my favorite things!  (Don’t be jealous)  Love you T!

...introducing sarah...

Hi Terese's Blog! My name is Sarah:

My interests include politics, international relations,anthropomorphizing religion, spinning around in the kitchen (see picture above), holding other people's babies, taking pictures of stuff as I'm driving by, riding my beach cruiser, and traveling the world. I just joined the Peace Corps and leave for Eastern Europe in the fall. My eyes are green and I like the summertime.

Terese is one of my best friends. We met in the fall of 2008 when we worked at the same place. We weren’t friends at first. She didn’t like me I think. But like all works of fate, we realized we were meant to be together. This lady has been with me through it all: an engagement, playing UNO, planning a fabulous wedding that never happened (seriously though it would have been a fabulous event), the aftermath of a giant breakup, running into my Mormon friends during a drunken movie theater incident (pouring wine into water bottles can be dangerous in terms of unknown consumption potential), etc,good times,etc. And that is my ode to Terese…

Anyway, I was given very little direction as to what this guest post should be about. While I do love fashion, I can’t say I’m too particular or care much about owning designer stuff and if I wear something that costs more than 30$ I start to feel anxious that I’m going to ruin it. But my basic fashion philosophy is to wear what you love, wear what you feel comfortable in, wear what you can afford (my dad instilled a healthy respect for frugality in me at a young age), and lastly wear what makes YOU feel like you.

So, without further overly-worded ado, here are some pictures of me just being me in my clothes:

I have enjoyed making this instant human connection with you! Huzzah!


The Celebrity Cover Backlash

 I found this great article and it made me super excited. For awhile now I have been totally bored with magazine covers and their choices when it comes to models, interviews, etc. When you compare european covers to the american market it becomes blatantly obvious how commercial american fashion magazines have become. there is no edge, no appeal...nothing new and daring. than... i found a similar blog on cocoperez that made it clear... celebrity covers might be on their way out...

who does it better...models or celebrities?
