If I had the budget to create my dream wardrobe it would look a little bit like the above. Primarily black (I'm told this is both predictable but endearing); silky fabrics; split skirts; blazers and of course the perfect LBD. 

My top 10 essentials list for every wardrobe:

27 September 2014 MAN CANDY: JCB

A man of many talents (he's a model, musician and actor), he's not only a British god but he rocks a nose piercing like no other and has a charming personality to match. 

Ladies, I introduce you to my newest love, Jamie Campbell Bower.

26 September 2014 I want what they're having

Feeling some Dalliance Magazine inspiration over these ready to wear/previous time era grunge/friendship group/street kid inspired editorials.

How on point is the styling in each image, as well?

 I've been seeing a lot of Louis Vuitton's Resort collection popping up in numerous editorials. I suppose the collection really is a stylist's dream. All those belted coats, varying materials and experimental dresses can lend itself to numerous editorial pitches. 

24 September 2014 girl crush: zoe kravtiz

7 reasons why Zoe Kravitz is most definitely my current girl crush:

1. Her style. With her signature circle sunglasses, slip dress and 90s prints Zoe nails the whole grunge free spirit look. 

2. Beauty chameleon: At only 25, Zoe has tried as many hair styles, as people have had in a lifetime...Front fringe, platinum blonde, choppy fringe, bob, jet black, light brown and long and long, flowing mermaid hair just to name a few. 

3. Having only been acting for less than 10 years, her resume is an impressive one including titles such as Divergent, X-Men: First Class, The Brave One and No Reservations. 

4. Friends in high places. Having fronted Alexander Wang's 2010 campaign, the pair have since been spotted hanging out at fashion week parties, with Zoe wearing numerous Wang designs. Favourite designer, and my favourite actress as his muse? Talk about a power couple. 

5. In case you haven't heard, Lolawolf is Zoe's new band. With relaxed, electronic tunes and soulful songs, the Brooklyn based band (comprised of Zoe, James Levy, Raviv Ullman, Jimmy Giannopoulos) are supporting Miley Cyrus in her Bangerz World Tour. 

6. Hailing from rock star royalty, with Lenny Kravitz as a father and Lisa Bonet as her mother, it's no question where she gets her cool factor from. 

7. Last but not least, her bubbly and easy going personality shines through each interview. Just type into Youtube 'Zoe Kravitz' and you'll see what I mean.

8 September 2014 endless summer

Images from: slim aarons | | pinterest | 

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” 

Summer: a time where crisp whites against tan skin is mandatory, where beaches are begging to be explored and a time where life really starts becoming how it should be. 

In two months, or so, I start my last summer of high school, and somehow I have placed this pressure on myself to experience the best summer yet. 

Although sailing around the Mediterranean and tanning in Capri isn't exactly likely (unfortunately!) I'm making a promise to myself to live every day like it was my last, a mantra I really believe in (yet barely follow!) I want to create  the kind of memories you recount years down the track, laughing at the fun times you had when you were young, ambitious, and ever so naive.
