FashionSquad's hott palazzo pants with red platforms, a bright green satchel, and a sheer white top. Wish I could strut this outfit in my chilly city.

Curious to try this lightening spray, terrified it turns your hair brassy, but could save me some dollars that usually belong to the salon.

Love this knot pony look from The Beauty Department (Lauren Conrad & Friends' new beauty blog that offers tips, tricks, and obsessions)

An Apartment I Could Only Dream Of

So the blackhole I call my apartment decided to swipe my MacBook charger out of my wall, I've seriously gone crazy searching for it. I gave in and ordered a new one and literally turned my computer on seconds ago and feel like I've missed out on so much and one of the first things that caught my eyes was the post on I Love Wildfox showing pics of Gwyneth Paltrow's Tribeca Apartment (see below). 

A plethora of white with fur rugs I could nap on, not to mention a couch swing in the living room!!! The bedroom is something I could only dream of with a gorgeous four post bed, chandelier, and double doors to the closet. Maybe one day I'll live in something like this but unless I can contain my spilling problem, I'd sadly ruin something so beautiful so quick. Oh Gwyn how jealous am I of you and your hot bod not to mention your new singing voice. 

I'll keep dreaming...

One of my favorite days to promote the amazing shoe collection of TOMS. Support TOMS by going barefoot or virtually barefoot if it's impossible to spend your day barefoot like me (walking around Wrigleyville during a Cubs game plus attending a concert that request shirt/shoes means I recommend the latter).
TOMS is a company I've supported for years, an organization that gives third world country children the chance to have shoes (a basic need) to walk to school and more. They are not only my favorite charity to support, but my growing TOMS collection are the most comfy flats that I've ever worn plus I receive compliments every time I put them on. 

Here's a picture of the Swank team in 2009 supporting ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES. I was able to walk with the community barefoot to support TOMS. "Drop TOMS, not Bombs." (via Swank Boutique)

Representing my TOMS at the ballpark! GO CUBS GO!

Film Inspo

FACTORY GIRL: My number one favorite movie that not only includes a glimpse of the peculiar yet brilliant life and factory of Andy Warhol, but how he used and abused his socialite muse, Edie Sedgwick played by the breathtaking Sienna Miller. The art, the fashion, the drama, and the cinematography hook me every time I press play.

Though Edie wears sheer black tights, underwear as outerwear is back in trend whether it be a sheer blouse revealing a bra or as pictured on CHEYENNE meets CHANEL a long black sheer dress by LF. Hayden Christensen plays Bob Dyaln although they never reveal his name, what girl wouldn't fall for his sexy voice, mesmerizing lyrics, and ability to rock the harmonica and guitar. Why not put him on your shirt to show your love with this She loves Bob Dylan Singlet by Spell Designs. And last Edie never left the house without oversized earrings weighing her down, these feather earrings from ModCloth will accenuate your boho look without stretching your lobes. 

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE : Second all-time favorite film that takes you on a trip(literally) of the Beatles music and how the war, drugs, and everything else going on in the world affected their changes in music. A musical(don't let this stop you from watching the movie) that involves the talented Evan Rachel Wood and dreamy Jim Sturgess who battle loss, mind-altering drugs, effects of war, and of course the ups and downs of love. Their hippie style paired with the greatest Beatles' songs make me wish I had a time machine to relive this era.

Sisters who are obsessed with searching for the top vintage items in SoCal, resell their finds on When Decades Collide. Their selection will not break your bank and allow you to display your love for any decade. Also pictured above a dress and western tooled bag by Free People who also has an amazing collection of vintage items. Although a little more pricey, one can find the exact style that is portrayed in this film. 

ALMOST FAMOUS: I think everyone can agree that this movie is in almost everyone's top five. Not only another hit for its choice in music but the fashion along with Kate Hudson's depiction of a true "band-aide" makes me fall in love time after time. Penny Lane is a character that we are envious of and also feel for when being a music groupie hits hard if you fall in love with the married lead guitarist, Russell Hammond.

Re-create your own Penny Lane style with these Woodstock Shades from NastyGal, paired with a cropped lace top from Hard Couture, and finally her famous Shearling Drape Jacket in Camel from once again NastyGal.

These are my go-to movies for style, fashion, and music, what about yours?

Enjoy, Viktoria
