Wow. What a gorgeous little spread.
The angels were excited this morning as they made the announcement that next year’s annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show would be heading to London!
They broke the news during a press conference inside Victoria’s Secret’s Bond Street store in London Tuesday. “We’re pretty excited to be here today because we have this great announcement to make,” Lima said. “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the biggest fashion event in the world, for sure, and we’re very proud and honored to announce that we are headed to London this year. Yes!”
“I’d like to invite Prince Harry, if he would like to come,” Lima told reporters. The 32-year-old Brazilian beauty promised he’d get the VIP treatment, of course. “He definitely has a front row seat!” she said.
Previous shows have been held in Los Angeles, New York City, Cannes, and Miami. I remember seeing looks on the runway featuring the Union Jack in previous shows, but I’m so curious as to what the themes will be this year. And as for performers? We hope it will be better than Fall Out Boy and Taylor Swift. My vote is for Sam Smith and Jessie Ware.
I didn’t get to do too much digging around, but yesterday one of my favorite fashion blogs, Fashionista, unveiled their new look and I am absolutely loving it. I don’t think there was anything really wrong with their previous layout, but one of my biggest qualms was having to continue to scroll down to read content. If I ever felt overwhelmed, it was because of that, maybe. With the new layout, photos accompanying the articles are brought right to the front. The text is much easier to read and timestamps – oh my gosh – the timestamps are much more visible! In the previous layout, I was either guessing or squinting my eyes trying to figure out the date. That’s just not a problem with the new layout.
Fashionista.com – we give you a thumbs up! Thanks for making my fashion blog reading so much easier.
I recently stumbled upon ban.do online and haven’t been able to take my eyes of their products. Every Instagram photo of theirs is adorable and the products on their website ooze of cuteness. They all would make some of the most perfect gifts for my girlfriends. Have any of you heard of them before or even purchased any of their products? They’re a shop that I am really excited about. Here are just a few things that I would want for myself and to give:
I don’t think I have ever been this excited about shoes. I’m absolutely obsessed with DV by Dolce Vita sandals and after making my first purchase for wedges last summer, I’ve been on track to continue buying them on an annual basis. While in San Diego, I finally purchased a pair of flat sandals that I am wearing as we speak. When I received an email in my inbox from Nordstrom this week announcing that you can customize your own DV by Dolce Vita sandals, I nearly jumped out of my seat – and by seat I mean I squirmed in the corner section of my sectional at home. Granted, any pair you customize yourself can actually be bought online as is, but it’s so much more fun to feel like you created your own. Currently, I am deciding between the one pictured above (tan+yellow) or (tan+blue)

If Kate Moss’s name is on anything, everyone’s ears immediately perk up. Her long lasting relationship with Topshop has brought so much success to the retailer and there’s no doubt that it won’t happen again. Her highly anticipated collection for Topshop has something for everyone from tailored pieces to dresses that you can’t wait to wear out. Each piece is clearly inspired by the pieces from Kate’s own wardrobe. Prices will range from $70-$1,200 and available for purchase online and in stores at Topshop, Nordstrom, Net-a-Porter, and ShopBazaar.com. Here are some pieces that we’re pretty excited about:
Free People has done quite the job of selecting models for their catalogs ranging from Karlie Kloss to Girls’ actor Christopher Abbott. In their latest catalog, the brand is featuring Freida Pinto who is absolutely drop dead gorgeous. She wouldn’t be the first style icon I would think of to represent Free People, but she did well.

Madewell Leather ID Bracelet – $24.50
It took a vacay to San Diego for me to face a long-deserved shopping spree. I was a little bit nervous about how much I was spending down there in comparison to food, but it seemed to work out and I am still pretty content with all of my purchases and ultimately ended up being well-fed. But…more on that later! Anyone that knows me knows that I never wear jewelry other than the gold hoops in my ears that I never take out. Since I was in elementary, I have always had hairties on my wrist and that’s as far as accessorizing goes for me. Being with Ashley though, I was a little more inclined to try something new. I am in love with my new bracelet and since it’s black and gold, it’s easy to match with most of my outfits.
My co-workers always manage to introduce me to the latest trends here in the Bay Area and I’m super grateful to them for it. A few months ago, Nadia mentioned “Twistbands” to me, but I was reluctant to try them out since I’m so used to having just my standard black hair ties wrapped around my wrist since 5th grade. The only time I ever replaced them was when I lost one of them. This past weekend in San Diego though, I fell in love with a gold and black Madewell bracelet that I opted to wear instead of my hair ties. Obviously, this was a pretty quick transition. Not only are they super cute and come in fun colors and prints, but they also make it so that when you tie your hair up, there aren’t any creases.
When Nadia told me last week that she was placing an order for Twistbands, I decided to give it a try. I selected one pack and when they arrived today, I couldn’t have been more excited. Technically you should wear them as hairties, but I love having them just on my wrist as bracelets. With an all-black outfit today and my DV by Dolce Vita wedges, these Twistbands couldn’t have matched any better.
