“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

~Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel was a pioneer when it came to elegance and sophisticated French fashion.She gave women that breathtaking allure with her attention to simplicity and her trademark Little Black Dress, which has become a staple. Chanel has made an impact on my life and Karl Lagerfeld has continued to do so, one of my favorite shows to date is the Fall 2011 runway show. So when our vintage buyer sourced some rare Coco Chanel vintage jewelry, I was a little bit taken aback. They sure do dazzle with elegance!

I've been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

Post image for Thursday Poll: Volume and Print

The Free People girl is not one to shy away from a statement. She’s bold, she takes up a lot of room, and she’s not afraid of color. She likes to push the limits, and that’s exactly why we have the most amazing collection of printed voluminous pants on the site right now. These pieces flip the rules on their head, and draw attention to the bottom half of an outfit. A few, with their flower child bohemian vibe, live in the Nouveau Boho trend while others are funky and psychedelic. We’re loving the can’t-miss-it look. Which statement, printed bottoms do you like best? Read more »

The last pant the slouch pant seems to me that the 80's are back and they just look to me like they shrunk. The bell bottoms 70's were way cooler time of fashion and the collate pant reminds me of Thai pants but with a twist. All look super comfy and a nice switch from the usual.

I really like all of them besides tiki pant.

“In this modern age everything, everywhere seems to lead the senses outward and away from oneself.  Don’t be afraid of quiet. Find the time for peace and introversion, and life will have new meaning.”

 ~ “The way of Tea” by Aaron Fisher

This Holiday I spent some quality time with my family.  They flew here from Wales and brought with them a new light; I took a step back and soaked in some quiet – we  took peaceful walks  around New York where my eyes were wide open looking for unexpected beauty. And, we snuggled on the sofa with our tummies full of hearty foods until we drifted asleep. Christmas goes way too fast, don’t you think? But hey, another celebration is soon to come, New Years Eve and then a brand new year to look forward too!

I have a special treat for you today! The amazing Dennis Lanni, who has done the hair for a number of our catalogs (including May and July, pictured above), demonstrates how to do one of his favorite braid styles on model Noot Seear. Hope you like!

I'm I the only one that's totally lost? When he "turns" or "twists" the braid around, is he simply turning it, or is he flipping it over and turning it. Help:(

I’ve been meaning to write about this album for a couple of weeks now – it’s pretty much been on repeat since I first listened to it. The Year of Hibernation is the debut album from Youth Lagoon, aka Trevor Powers (a former urban employee!) who has seen incredible success from the LP, which he recorded in his bedroom.  Read more »

Best gift? My dad saw here on the blog that I wanted a vintage camera strap, so he gave me his old one that he has had for years :)

Also really loving this book of photography by Linda McCartney – it begins with her life as a rock photojournalist who was house photographer at the Fillmore East and photographed legends like the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, The Doors, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, before meeting and falling in love with Paul McCartney.  Paging through the book is literally like a glimpse into her life as she saw it through her camera lens – really beautiful.

You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation however I find this matter to be really something which I feel I'd by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am taking a look ahead to your next submit, I will try to get the dangle of it!

Your blog is absolutely amazing! I would love to see some cigar post on here because I am an avid follower!

Dress your eyes with a dark eye shadow and smear on some pretty light pink lip gloss. Spray a touch of Coco Mademoiselle around your neck,l and finish the look with a great cuff. Ready to Celebrate!

Our buyer loves this dress because: “the fabric. it’s great quality and body con in all the right ways. Long sleeves make it feel like you’re not showing too too much”

Be Devilish in Red

Our Modern Day Flapper Dress is sexy but sweet. it swings delicately from your body. To get ready in this dresswe want to be in a kind of sexy mood. Burn a Baies Diptyque candle to set the mood and listen to Fleetwood Mac,drink red wine and dance around the room.  Spot your lips with a subtle lip colour, accessorize with a few bracelets and a signature ring, and you’re ready for a romantic night!

Our buyer loves this dress because: “great color options, we can totally see this all dressed up for NYE. A modern flapper look with faux fur, heels and lots of accessories!”

Stand out in the crowd

Our Sequin sway dress is a show stopper. to wear this dress you have to ooze confidence. Get in the confident mood and listen to Led Zeppelin, enjoy some Champagne and wear a sexy scent like Tom Ford Back Orchid. Paint your nails a sparkling black and be sassy! Be ready for a night out on the tiles.

Our buyer loves this dress: “Great option for a little sparkle. We love the open back for a little added sex appeal”

Post image for Crispy Sage-Sprinkled Latkes

Every year I look forward to latkes for Chanukah. In my family, we always ate them for the holiday. I remember one year when my mother was working at a local newspaper and she made an entire array using all types of potatoes for a review. It’s a fond memory of mine, and now that I’ve moved out of my parents’ house I still need them so much that I’ve taken on the task myself. Read more »

Dorothy Blevens -Jan 08, 2012, 9:38AM
These look sooo good. I have been on a diet and couldn't have any this Chanukah. Alright, I did have one, but I wanted a whole lot more! Four more weeks; can't wait to try these!
Christina -Dec 26, 2011, 1:18PM
This looks so tasty. And I love that you made them extra crispy! Check out my eggplant parm I made for the holiday weekend! http://becauseofmadalene.blogspot.com/
