Laura: Celebrity Style

It's been lovely weather and the celebs have been out and about again! Here's some great style from all around. :) Kirsten Dunst in Miu Miu! I reallyreallyreally like this bathing suit that Taylor Swift is wearing! I wonder where she got it..., this new hair color is certainly a good thing for Kristen. She also looks much more relaxed in this more edgy style! Ditto... Drew Barrymore has the perfect summer outfit! Katie Holmes on set for a new movie about the Kennedy's. Three guesses as to who she's playing? ;) Rene's simple blue dress is quite stunning. Not to mention the shoes!

Christy: Don't wear anything I wouldn't.

I still need to work on my timer shots. I tend to stand a little to the left or right of where I want to be.
I Like the combination of the green necklace/belt and the blue skirt but I realize that maybe grey/green/blue aren't always the best colours to put together.


I took one shot in my enchanted garden of a backyard. At least this time all of me ended up in the shot and not just my hip or shoulder.


I realize this outfit is very simple but often when it's hot in the summer I simply don't want anything heavy.
On an unrelated note my bike is fixed so I am able to ride it again. It is very very ugly though and really not worth taking pictures of. I find that a lot of bloggers have beautiful old vintage bikes in bright sassy colours. This is not the case for me sadly.
How was your weekend?

Thrifted K-swiss skirt, belt from Russia, necklace I received as a gift and tank from smart set.

Laura: Celebrity Style I don't usually go wild over Katy Perry's style, but I'm actually loving this bright & bold cat print dress! Helen Mirren can never go wrong! I'm assuming this 30's style outfit Evan Rachel Wood is wearing is for a film role? Another chic, lady-like assemble by Anna Wintour... Kirsten Stewart, looking surprisingly chic and poised! I'm loving Katie's casual look! Those high-waisted jeans are intense, but she rocks them! Vodianova steals the show in this glam purple number! I'm loving her necklace! I kinda really love Kirsten Dunst's shoes :D One of my favorite looks--Emma Watson's LV corset top with boots and denim shorts. :D She looks stunning!

Laura (again)

OK, so this is maybe a bit more of a fall outfit--at least those tights are! I was boiling. But it looked darling, and hopefully you can't tell I'm dying of heat.
I got these shoes today at a thrift store. They're super comfy and chic!

This is one of the skirts I altered yesterday. It doesn't look much different except it sits higher on my waist.

Laura: 100th post!!

Go us!! This is the 100th blog post! When we started this blog back in November I totally thought it wouldn't last past December, at the most. My previous blogs had the grand total of 3 posts, tops. But here we are! And we actually have readers who aren't ourselves :P So, hope you're enjoying!

I also found some inspiration and managed to rustle up a half-decent outfit (above). No, it's not super exciting(hence my unexcited expression) but I figured it was post-able :P

Today was spent sewing--I discovered that for a long torso/short legs, most of my skirts were incredibly unflattering--sitting low on my hips/past my knees. So I put tucks in to make the waists smaller, and hemmed them. They pretty much turned out amazingly, especially considering I pretty much eye-balled everything and didn't use any pins. :P And I'm planning on looking around a few second-hand stores tomorrow, so I may dig up some more things to alter. I'll be sure to post about those soon.

So in the mean time, here's a post from me that Christy has been begging me for :P See ya soon!

P.S. Here's some cuteness :) my (newish) ferret Sabine, checking out my teddy bear Hermann!

Christy: Death be not proud.

I got a job!! It's at a day camp. I'm really happy even though I wanted to work retail this summer. At least working at a day camp is something I'm really qualified to do.

Today I got coffee with my friend and then we went on a rambling walk through the city. We eventually came to the mountain (large hill) and decided to walk through the graveyard there. Even though It's a little creepy I really like Cemeteries and find them really peaceful places.

I realize this isn't fashion related at all but I wanted to share my pictures of the graveyard. It was so beautiful and quiet in a mysterious old kind of way.


The mausoleums were especially beautiful. The architecture of the dead can be uncannily beautiful.


The whole graveyard was lined with trees and flowers and the shade was a welcome break from the hot sun. This path was especially beautiful and looked perfect for a contemplative walk.

Have any of you ever walked through a graveyard ?
On a more fashion related note my inner sock lover was delighted by these socks from the fall miu miu collection.

I like knitted socks and this shade of charcoal can go with just about anything.

Christy: Summer but not slimmer

Oh grease and fat! what a complicated relationship i have with you. One day it's love and the next it's guilt. I always envision myself exercising more in the summer but in reality it's the other way around and it's winter when I do regular exercise. Lately, Instead of exercising more I spend my time with friends or in pursuits like reading and lounging around drinking lemonade, which are infinitely more relaxing.


There I am surrounded by flora in my back yard. I'm supposed to have started weeding the massively expanding garden but as of yet I haven't gotten a start on that.
What I wore today: I realize the miss matched socks really don't work but I was wearing my keds for most of the day.
Outfit details: Blouse- Thrifted, Shorts-H&M, belt-vintage,

Christy: Pretty summer inspirations.

I made some changes to our blog. Changed the header and added a few things to the sidebar. What do you guys think? I wasn't sure about the header.

I love lookbooks. Especially whimsical summer ones. I saw these Sretsis images on someone's blog (I'm very sorry I don't remember whose) and I fell in love with the crisp elegant basics and unexpected frills. I was also won over by the animals who are inexplicably part of these scenes. I wanted to share a few of my favorites
I love the light airyness of the half blouse with the black skirt.
This jacket dress is beyond cute with it's girly skirt and tailored top.
This is very nearly my favorite summer dress I"ve seen for a while. I love the interesting tailoring and the sweet bows.
This sophisticated outfit is only made better by the fox.

As soon as I have a bit more money I want to invest in some light summer clothing inspired by these looks. What has been your biggest summer inspiration?
