I pulled these shots from a killer editorial just published in Vogue China's August 2011 issue titled Boy Meets Girl. The Nikes grabbed me because I just purchased a pair and have found myself wearing them with everything.  I love how they were used in this shoot.  You can check out more of the Boy Meets Girl editorial looks here.

Lee Storm Rider.

When I was in junior high, a Lee Storm Rider was a must item in your wardrobe. I don't know if it was a general trend or more of a western Calgary thing, either way I remember it fondly. I was reminded about the jacket when I came across the top photo featuring a Storm Rider inspired Isabel Marant piece.  I went in search for more Storm Rider images and I kept coming across these fantastic film stills of Marilyn Monroe's wardrobe in the Misfits. I am definitely tracking down a vintage Lee for fall.

Dirty Dancing.


This hot weather has me thinking of summer film clothes. I always loved Jennifer Grey's bodysuit (swimsuit?) and jean shorts combo she rocked during the dancing on the bridge montage. Some fun inspiration in these shots for a few dancer-esque wardrobe choices.  It looks like "baby" was rockin' the sheer skirt ages ago.

Jil Sander for Uniqlo.

A preview of Jil Sander's last collaboration with Uniqlo. I really love that coat.

Folding fan.

I bought a Japanese folding fan a few years ago at a vintage shop and this pic just reminded me about it. What a perfect accessory for this week. Folding fans are like silk scarves, their color and design can make a look all the more interesting.

Ellery is an Australian label founded by Kym Ellery who was formerly a Market Director at Russh Magazine. I didn't know about the label until I came across their most recent spring lookbook, which is amazing. The collection's strong structure, bold shoulders, and metallics give it a tough armor like quality to me. I was watching Game of Thrones recently and some of the men's wardrobe actually reminded me of some of her pieces. You can see more of the label's killer collections including this one via their site.

I have quite a soft spot for the backpack.  For me they are a must because I walk most places, but I've always liked the slightly nerdy, personal touch it brings to a look.

DIY biker shorts.

I have been seeing more and more DIY (do it yourself) posts these days. Some are more crafty than I can handle but when it comes to the simple snip of the scissors, that I can do.  My American Apparel sweats just recently met the fate of my scissors and now I think my leggings are next.

This shot reminds me of a black shirt dress I owned from Club Monaco in my late teens.  I remember it being the perfect hot weather uniform. An easy thrown on that was so comfortable but still really sharp. I love how strong and confident this woman looks in it, she could almost pass as security detail.
