Are Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson not the cutest couple in the world? So much so that it doesn't even bother me that they both are wearing stripes. Kinda wish I was at Coachella (can you believe it is going for another weekend?) with these two love birds. Hope they won't mind me awkwardly staring at them the whole time....

Song on Repeat: "Somebody That I Used To Know"

I heard this Gotye song awhile ago and instantly loved it (they sound like the Police!) but it wasn't until today that I saw the video and really listened to the words. Now I love it even more and will listen to it on repeat for the rest of the day. Well at least until I go outside and enjoy the much needed New York sun. So good, right?

It's All About the Angles

So I have been in a bit of a slump lately (resulting in minimal blog posts, I'm sorry), I'm certainly not trying to wallow in it but I'll admit that my inspiration has been lacking. But I'll have you know, I am 100% (!!!) ready for it to be over. Positivity, yes, positivity! So one of the happy things that has happened to me lately that should help shake it is one of my friends gave me his old camera. Old to him is amazing and new to me,  I have been wanting a "real" camera since I started this blog and this one is perfect. 

So I fancy myself a good documentarian but not necessarily the best photographer, but this bad boy may help with that. I do spend a lot of time looking at beautiful photographs and try to learn from them and feel myself developing a better eye. So on to the real subject of this blog entry: look at these two photos, both of Caroline Sieber during Paris Fashion Week, both shot by talented street style photographers probably within seconds of one another. But don't you think one is significantly better than the other? The top shot shows a bit of her face, more of those fabulous shoes and although it may not have as much of a billow of wind in the skirt and in her hair, I like it so much more. It captures all the right angles, and photography is all about the angles. It's all about timing as well, and I am sure if the Sartorialist's (yes, the not as good, but still good, shot is by him) caught her a moment before or after, his photo would have been as perfect as Candice Lake's. 

Or am I totally wrong and it's really just personal preference? Which do you like better?

P.S. Pink and blue, digging it.

Dream Coachella Outfit

If I happened to be heading out to the desert with all those Hollywood hipsters this weekend, this long dress and lace crop top would be it for me. I think a version of my own lives within my closet somewhere and I certainly will break it out once there is some consistent sunshine in this city. Prospect Park, anyone? Wouldn't mind the bearded man in the floral shirt as my accessory either.

Salvador Dali, 1954.

Still Obsessed...

...with the peekaboo of skin crop top look. I blogged about the trend here and wrote an article about it here and I'm still not sick of it. Miss Gomez pulled it off pretty perfectly (well for a young pop sprite like her) last night at the Kid's Choice Awards. And if I was a young pop sprite like her I might wear this the next day. Super cute.
