IBM’s Smarter Cities Billboard Campaign

When I was kid, I used to be enamored with billboards. I liked the way they looked the way they were designed, and their purpose. Of course back then, advertisements were pretty bland. They’ve gotten a lot more interesting these days, which is why I wanted to share with you the “Smarter Cities” billboard campaign by IBM. Not only is it getting across a message, but it serves another functional purpose. Could we get this one above here in Seattle? I think the locals would love it.

She may not be a Victoria’s Secret angel anymore, but the woman is WORKIN’ it. Literally, she’s still working – she’s not ever really going to have a problem with that. These new shots for Mango are absolutely flawlesss.

Emma Stone For W

These photographs by Juergen Teller have actually been out for a couple of weeks now, but I didn’t want to post them until I had the full spread of photos right in front of me. I don’t really like the way that Emma Stone looks on this cover because though she exudes innocence, she also looks child-like and as a viewer, it feels a little bit creepy. However, I’ve always been a fan of Juergen Teller’s work. He’s the man behind all of the Marc Jacobs ad and I’ve adored his work so much that I remember even including him in my final project for History of Costume Design during my freshman year of college on how different forms and outlets will change the way we look at fashion. Advertisements were one of them.

Daria Werbowy for Maiyet

Model Daria Werbowy is a vision in Maiyet’s S/S 2012 new campaign. I really like the concept of this campaign being so simple especially since recent campaigns have appeared to be overdone in my book and at times a little “too much.” View all of the photos for Maiyet here.

One in the Same

Style blogger Tavi Gevinson and singer Cyndi Lauper are both starring in a new campaign for Uniqlo. These two women are complete opposites age-wise and career wise, but somehow these advertisements just make sense to me. It’s such an interesting collaboration, but unique in that I would have never imagined these two to be put together.

Michelle Williams For Boy By Band Of Outsiders

Michelle Williams has been a style icon dream during the last year so when I heard that she was recently tapped to be included in the Boy By Band of Outsiders campaign, I was thrilled! Boy By Band of Outsiders has always produced collections that have resonated with me, but I especially love that the simple campaign ideas are reflected in Polaroids. It gives it a very classic vibe that also pulls at our nostalgic heart strings.

Check out the rest of the campaign photos here.

Oscar de la Renta has picked up the young model to be featured in their latest Spring 2012 ad campaigns. Doesn’t she look fabulous? That dress – I want. That belt – I need! Oh and Karlie’s face – the HBIC is back! Of course she never went anywhere in the first place, but it’s the look that lets all of us know that she’s here to stay.

Fall Clothing Budgets

Lo’s Mom: It’s not a fashion show, Lo.
Lo: Everyday’s is a fashion show, Mom.

Laguna Beach

Some people enjoy the first week of school because they become restless with summer or they’re excited to be back in the learning environment. I couldn’t wait to get back so that I could show off the various outfit combinations that I had created within my new fall wardrobe. Oh yes. I was THAT girl. Not much has changed since then though except for the fact that I strive for this throughout the year instead of just the fall season.

Growing up, my mom had given me a fall school shopping clothing budget so that  I could purchase the items that I needed for the upcoming season. Though frustrating at times, it also taught me how to be a careful spender and learn the value of budgeting. Once I had hit zero, I was done until Christmas came around. These days, I no longer have that same clothing budget because I have my own job and all that. Instead, I’m the one giving myself the clothing budget and it’s going to be a small amount since my priorities of school books, bills, and food tend to be a little bit higher on the spectrum.

When I was younger, I needed to have many items for fall. I needed to be able to mix and match everything to create the max number of outfits possible. Little old me was thinking efficiency here. As I’ve gotten older, my tastes in clothes have developed more (hopefully better,) and I have found that I am more interested in making purchases that will be longer-lasting. Instead of buying the same basic tank top or tee in a number of colors, I’ll purchase a jacket for the fall that will be a bit pricier, but can be worn with just about anything. It may or may not be trendy, but at least I’ll know it’ll last me for more than just a year (since I’m not growing anymore – this is possible.) My current list of back to school items include an olive canvas jacket, a dress for the fall that can be dressed up or down and a pair of rainboots. I took a trip to J. Crew and Madewell this past weekend and found myself swooning over EVERYTHING. I rely heavily on sales though as a broke college student so I suppose I’m lucky that two of my favorite retailers are pretty great in that department!

I promise to keep you posted on my purchases within the next month.

For now, here are some new Madewell campaigns featuring my style icon Alexa Chung!
