I’ve been using Instagram for awhile now, and even though my iPhone 3GS doesn’t take stunning snapshots like the 4S, the app can make your life look so much more beautiful than it actually is.
Stay up to date with my Instagram photos on Followgram, or by searching for modeandthelike on your phone app!
I’m really into the whole androgyny look à la Dolce & Gabbana right now, so this spread completely encompasses my current style mood. I love that you can find old fashion shoots that still feel so relevant despite a season, two seasons, or a decade having gone by. I also detect a little Woody Allen and grunge in there, which is excellent. And you can never have too much grey.
I’ve slowly but surely been reading through all my September issues (consisting of Elle, InStyle, Vogue, Teen Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, 7×7, and W, shown above). Surprisingly I’ve tackled most of the magazines and am down to Vanity Fair, 7×7, and W, with which I’m more than half way through. In addition to the stunning shoot above (I love the shirt, and the hair!!), I thought I’d share a few photos of things that I’m excited about. This includes the golden Zina Kao necklace that I recently purchased resting comfortably on the page up top. I bought it in a Calistoga boutique called Zenobia; I used to work there, and visit frequently because it has a gorgeous assortment of jewelry, cute clothes and shoes, and other goods. If you’re ever in Napa Valley, I suggest you check it out; there’s also a great little café next door called the San Marco Espresso and Bake Shop, with ice cream, pastries, and (obviously) coffee.
Fall fashion is in full swing. I love all of these mags deeply. Could not find September covers of Nylon or Fall covers of V or i-D anywhere, which frustrates me. Harper’s Bazaar and I are on good terms as well though I can’t really stand their cover this month so no go. Also not the biggest fan of JLo, but VFair is VFair.
PS: Did anyone else notice that Kristen Stewart looks AMAZING!??! Eye makeup and brows to die for with lips plumped and hair pumped to the max.
