“Try to keep your mind open to possibilities and your mouth closed on matters that you don’t know about. Limit your always and your nevers. Continue to share your heart with people even if it’s been broken. Don’t treat your heart like an action figure wrapped in plastic and never used. And don’t try to give me that nerd argument that your heart is a batman with a limited edition silver Batarang and therefore if it stays in its original package it increases in value.”
– Amy Poehler
“She grew up in an Indiana town
Had a good-lookin’ mama who never was around
But she grew up tall and she grew up right
With them Indiana boys on them Indiana nights”
– Tom Petty, ‘Mary Jane’s Last Dance’
Earlier this week, I was feeling pretty patriotic. Such unexplainable mood swings often call for outfit changes – hence the flag-like colourblocking combination above.
Blue jumpsuit with heart-shaped pockets (worn unbuttoned and pinned in the back to mimic blue separates), red blazer, white platforms.

”Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of others’ thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ thinking drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
– Steve Jobs
“Almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
– Steve Jobs
My heart suffered a beautiful death while viewing Elie Saab (also known as the faultless epitome of Parisian chic). The peplum-heavy Fall/Winter 2011 collection featured updated Belle du Jour showpieces, enough red-carpet variety to singularly satisfy E!’s Fashion Police, and a colour palette I would emphatically live in (aubergine dresses that could trigger a panic attack). Paying special attention to the deep plum delights, it is clear that these are the gowns of our generation. See the top five looks below! View Post
