At times like these, I wish I could throw down $200 dollars like it was nothing for this gorgeous tiger dress from the Kate Moss for Topshop’s Christmas collection (that by the way, sold out within minutes). Or at least $100 for that gorgeous triangle rock dress, or that amazing fur stripe gillet thing. I am all sorts of jealous for any girl that managed to snatch up this dress; send me pictures please, because I am sure this is even more gorgeous in person than it is in pictures.
Love. This. Girl. (especially her haircut)
1. I bought 200 pyramid studs for MJ and I to play with. I’ve been playing with the idea for awhile after seeing so many fashion bloggers give it a go and get fantastic results, but it wasn’t until I saw Rachel Bilson’s teen vogue cover that I was convinced I needed to give it a go. It’s actually a lot harder than I thought; very time consuming and thumb damaging :( But I’m convinced it’ll be worth it in the end, I’ll show you guys my results when I’m done.
My attempt at the shredded tee, following Camille’s directions in her DIY post that I mentioned last time. It’s about 25 percent done. This project I’ve got going on is super time consuming too, no wonder the real one is 400 plus dollars. The labor that goes into this (if its done by hand) is incredible. With all the work I’ve been putting into this, I’m starting to feel like a sweatshop worker, but I keep telling myself it’ll be worth it in the end (:
Hey! I guess this is my introduction…
Who are you?
My name is MJ, sophomore in college, aspiring hotelier/stylist/songwriter/pianist…
2. What is your look?
It varies. But I guess I’m really into the grungey sex hair smoky eyed look- except I don’t actually look like that every day (unfortunately). But there are times when I’m into the classic simple looks a la Kate Lanphear or Hilary Rhoda’s look in the Estee Lauder Sensuous perfume ads…
I know a lot of bloggers have been long awaiting Camille’s DIY on shredded tees ever since Erin Wasson was seen fiercly strutting around in one by Racquel Allegra. Unfortunately, buying the original (I think it costs around $400+) is a little (or a lot) out of our price range, and luckily, Camille has saved our lives (and our wallets) once again, go check it out here! The results turn out amazing. If you don’t know who she is, that’s crazy talk. I’m off to try it out myself!

I realized that MJ and I never really introduced ourselves–I think our first post jumped right into our inspiration boards. We probably got a little too excited (: I’m going to do mine first (MJ is currently catching up current events next to me) and MJ will probably do hers later tonight. Anyhow, this is just a small get to know us post, in case you were interested.
1. Who are you?
Chel, college student, marketing major, I blog here (:
2. What is your look?
If you took a look in my closet, most of what you’ll probably see is black, gray, brown, white, black, blue. I love dark colors; I’ve been trying to add more color recently though. I like the just rolled out of bed, wearing oversized shirt look. Skinny jeans, ripped up. Blazers and tights. I think you get the picture.
For those of you who don’t know, MJ is actually a contributing writor for the Supermelon (: She’s already written many many articles for them, but she recently did an amazing piece on wearing fur and all the amazingness of it. I’m love love loving fur right now; especially watching all those Rachel Zoe episodes. In anycase, please check it out ! She’d love some feedback and love!

I love the Stockholm Street Style site (among many other street style sites), all the girls on there are gorgeous and always styling. I’m always in awe of their impeccable outfits, but lately, maybe its the weather, all I can stare at, other than their boots, are their wonderful big slouchy scarves. I especially love the chunky light orange scarf and the way the girl on the far right draped her big wooly scarf around her head. Who said scarves couldn’t also be used as a hoodie? In any case, these stylish Swedish girls have convinced me that I need colorful scarves, namely a light orange one, now now now! And I remember seeing a similar huge black scarf at H&M last weekend, so I’m definitely going to go pick one up soon. As for the orange one, I’m eyeing this one from forever 21, unless I find a chunky-er one soon with a lighter orangey color. If you know where I can find one though, please help!
