oscar glam

hollywood’s big night
where the red carpet really IS the best part
and my favorite ladies
did NOT disappoint…
gywneth was STUNNING in calvin klein.
this IS modern glamour
and the stick- straight hair was perfect.
mandy moore
ummm… WOW
she. has. arrived.
helen mirian
is H.O.T.
seriously… SO proud with that stunning white bob
and fircely funky dress
sandra bullock
i just adore her.
not my most favorite look on her ever
but she ROCKS it
and speaking of red hot mammas…
hello, penelope cruz
and her 4 week post-baby bod.
reese witherspoon
all hollywood glam
love the emeralds with the black + white
halle berry
make up. hair. dress.
mila kunis
in that stand-out lavender
which was gorgeous on the red carpet
michelle williams
and her insanely feminine bob.
did you watch? what were your faves?!

classics redefined: l.l.bean

new england roots run deep.
l.l.bean goods are most likely part of our DNA.
i honestly don’t think i know a baby born without a monogrammed boat + tote.
but as good (oh, and they are good) as the “l.l.bean boots” are,
the woman’s jeans,
are that sad.
the clothing fashion… lacking.
until now.
introducing: l.l.bean signature.
(can you hear the angels singing?!?)
the classics. re-worked. new styling. new fit.

and, you?
of COURSE i will come on your boat.

but it is because i love your sweater.

and, as any cape codder knows,
l.l.bean is always better misted in a sea-salt spray.

classic redefined: hudson bay blanket

can you even imagine a more perfectly cozy spot to curl up with a good book?!
total perfection… the teepee inside, the built-ins LOADED with books, even a surf board to remind that winter will end.
the cherry on top?
cozy. preppy. a little bit vintage.
and check out this fun use of the classic…

i adore ottomans upholstered in kilim rugs, but THIS is cozy too!

but when rachel bilson (whose style i can totally relate to) stepped out during the olympics in this coat?!?!
the classic. reinterpreted by smythe.

love. love. love.
oh, how good would this look with frye harness boots and skinny jeans.

sweet sixteen

cover girl on december’s teen vogue, and just shy of her sixteenth birthday, dakota fanning is back in the spotlight for a role in the newest twilight film.
i suppose it’s still early for her, but isn’t it refreshing to see a young a-lister famous for their work, rather than their DUIs and sex tapes?
i’ve always been a fan, and i think these pictures are GORGEOUS and, age appropriate.

looking very kate hudson

still a little bit, “little girl”

pure chic-ness
