  • French Vogue Inspired Photoshoot

    Over the past weekend, my good friend Zoe Tapp and I had a little photoshoot. Since I’ve been wanting to do a stylized shoot for a while, we decided to just go for it. I styled everything, from the hair to the make-up to the outfits. Then we hit the streets of Downtown Seattle (including the Westin Hotel) and starting snapping pics.

    The inspiration comes from flipping through the editorials in French Vogue – crossed with the latest Urban Outfitters catalogue. I loved how nonchalant the photos were in UO, and I loved the dark, sexy vibe from French Vogue. Those two things combined gave me the idea for the type of shoot & styling you see in the pictures to follow.

    I hope everyone enjoys this – if you want to see the full set of pictures, click here. As always, let me know what you think! I’ll be bringing you more stylized photoshoots soon :)




  • Friday Favorites

    I am really trying hard not to let my shopping addiction get the best of me. So, instead of going out and buying all these AMAZING items this weekend, I’ve decided to virtually buy them and show them off on my blog. (But we all know I’ll cave and go purchase some of these items…soon).

    Enjoy & let me know what your Friday Favorites are!

    ALSO: I just started an Etsy shop for the Chic Curve where you can purchase vintage pieces I find around town. Check it out here and use the coupon code “TWITTERFRIENDS” for 10% off anything! Keep checking back, I’ll be adding some great stuff this weekend.





  • Vintage Gold Stuarts & Crazy Thrifted Blouse

    Shoes & Shirt: Vintage, Necklace: H&M, Bracelets: Nordstrom & Vintage, Lipstick: Schiap by NARS

    I’m obsessed. Completely obsessed with my new vintage gold Stuart Weitzman pumps that I found while vintaging for $7! So I decided to just make it vintage day, and threw on my bright rose print button down with the gorgeous shoes.

    Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the shirt, the shoes and the entire look. I love the whole vintage, oversized, open-button-up shirt look, but not everyone is a fan! Tell me what you think in the comments, and then head to your nearest thrift/vintage store to find some treasures!

  • Rebecca, the Gold Chain & Blue Stripe

    Today’s post will be short & sweet (mainly because I have too much work to do for my day job, but want to keep the outfits coming!).

    Notice the post is named Rebecca – after the first reader who guessed how I got my hair up in that full, huge bun (from this post). My secret is long, thick locks (my hair is pretty short, and thin). My secret is a little sponge-like donut that I picked up in Ireland after seeing herds of girls passing by with PERFECT buns on the tops of their heads. I just kept thinking – there is no way that is their real hair! You can pick up one of these hair donuts at any beauty supply store, or online.

    The gold chain, which I like to call my “gangsta chain” is from H&M last summer. I stole it off of a manikin, since it was the last one, starting my “thug rampage” induced by the gangsta chain. The top is from Zara in Italy, jacket is vintage, shoes are Steve Madden flats. Pink Lipstick is YSL “Rouge Volupte” and its one of my favs :)
