I thought I would do another post inspired by my day at the Art Institute of Chicago. Claude Monet has always been one of my favorite artists, and seeing my favorite works by him in person was truly breathtaking. I love the pastel, muted tons of his pieces and decided to draw inspiration from them for my clothing choices. Who thought impressionism could leave such an impression on me? xoxo, MS
Now that award's season is in full swing, I am a happy camper. I love vegging on out my couch in front of the television to catch all the award's season fashion! The Screen Actor's Guild Awards takes place on Sunday so I thought I would quick give a run-through of my favorite looks from last year's show. Enjoy! xoxo, MS
I stumbled across this etsy shop while looking for pearl jewelry. Not only did I find a few pearl goodies, but I found a bevvy of butterflies and other whimsical treasures. Which Goose is owned by Emily Zych who left her day job to create these beauties! Not only is the fact that she is doing something she adores inspiring, it's the fact that everything she creatures is so fabulous. All the beauties in her shop make me nostalgic for spring. Not only do I love everything to do with butterflies, but I also love curious little nature-inspired valuables and vintage finds.
I love your shop, Emily! xoxo, MS
A pair of rainboots were always something that I longed to have, but never really thought they were necessary. The few pairs that I have ever tried on were always big and super uncomfortable. They had no support and made me feel as if I was wearing a firefighter's pair of boots. Totally un-chic. But after walking to class/work in the winter in my Uggs, I decided rainboots are essential. Ruining a pair of shoes because of walking thru a slushy mess isn't fun. I found some great, comfortable rainboots with matching fleece socks and insoles. These make me want to hop, skip, and--dance in the rain! (and snow, slush...) :)
I managed to make it to the Art Institute of Chicago yesterday and was pleasantly surprised to find out it was a free admission day. And that was just the start to a fantastic day filled with many surprises. The Art Institute is home to some of my favorite pieces of work. I have always loved art, and something about seeing paintings that I have gazed at in books in person is truly breathtaking. I thought it would fun to take inspiration from some of my favorites and create looks based on them. So here are a few of the beauties that call Chicago their home.
Jackson Pollack's Greyed Rainbow

I felt like these L.A.M.B. Quintessa sandals really matched the graphic quality of the piece.
So as expected, Gwen's ad for L’Oréal Paris was fierce! Not only did they feature her in a series of traditional-Gwen outfits, think ties and houndstooth, but they also played a little ditty similar to 'Hollaback Girl.' I can't wait to see a series of print ads of this collaboration. If anyone should be selling lipstick, it's Gwen Stefani!
Just wanted to write a quick post to give a shout out to my love, Lucy. Even though i'm living fabulously in the city, I miss her dearly! Not only are out-of-this-world clothes and accessories the inspiration for my blog, her spunk and sass are too. I love you, Lucy! xoxo
For today's etsy pick, I decided to go with another vintage shop! I have a certain obsession with vintage clothing that I will never get over! Jess James Jake Vintage has a good collection with a variety of different pieces. Here are a few of my favorite items from this fabulous shop! :)
Well award's season is in full swing and tonight is the Golden Globes. I love love love awards season. Mainly, I love it because of the gowns. GG night and Oscar night always bring out the best in fashion! Well now that I have seen it all tonight, I will pick my favorite look of the night. It's no surprise that it's the ever-stylish January Jones. She's the new face of Versace so it's no wonder she wore this stunning red dress by them. As a runner up, i'd have to say Sandra Bullock in Jenny Packham. How lovely!
