Hey Brah

 1. Athletic: T by Alexander Wang V-Cut Bra Top, $65, at Ronherman.com
 2. Retro: Stella McCartney Tilda Playing Underwire Bra, $88, at Net-a-porter.com
3. Bright: Passionata Oh La La Demi Bra, $66, at Journelle.com
I have always loved lingerie of all kinds, but that doesn't mean I'm good at picking it out for myself. I could ogle fancy, frilly, or dramatic bras all day long, but despite what I lead myself to believe, I have big boobs and cute bras don't work on big boobs. I'm in the market for some new lacey bits and these three actually look like they could provide some support in addition to looking cute. The Alexander Wang one is just for me, though. No guy wants to see that.

Chanel 2011 Cruise Nails It

Chanel Beauty designer Peter Phillips created a new shade of powder blue for Chanel's 2011 Cruise collection, which debuted in St. Tropez yesterday. This could definitely be the new Jade, although I have a feeling the nail polish sell-out buzz might have passed. That said, it will be mine.

When One Isn't Enough

I may already have a cut-off denim vest, but that doesn't stop me from wanting another. (My current is one I DIY-ed from a denim jacket I picked up at Goodwill. I am, of course, the only person who goes into Goodwill and comes out with J.Crew.)

Which do we like, Gap's Raw-edged Denim Vest or J.Crew's Denim Vest? Neither, they're both Man Repellers? You bet they are.

Rachel Comey Hiking-Inspired Bags

Rachel Comey Barbells Backpack, Rachel Comey Puddle Drop Backpack, Rachel Comey Tarpalin Weave Utility Clutch, Rachel Comey Barbells Utility Clutch

I am 100% smitten over these Rachel Comey bags. The hiking-inspired shapes designs gained a lot of attention when she showed them in her Spring/Summer 2010 show and they've finally hit stores. I have a major soft spot for anything that involves hiking shapes, fabrics, or styling because I grew up going on hikes nearly every weekend and spending vacations camping. When I was little I sort of hated it, but now I appreciate how awesome it was and really miss it being in New York. A lot of the gear we used were things either passed down from my grandparents or that my parents had used when they were young, meaning everything was perfectly '70s and retro. I made them keep as much of it as possible, but it isn't really wearable in the every day. These bags make it possible, which is why they are top of the list for my summer must-haves.

Wiksten Spring/Summer 2010

I love Wiksten's Spring/Summer 2010 lookbook. The beach (at Jacob Riis Park), the red lipstick, the jumping, and the smiling all set the scene for a perfect summer. The small collection is surprisingly Opening Ceremony-friendly with cut-out shoulders, tank top button-ups, and tribal prints, but since each is made in such small batches, you really will have something unique. The dyed tank dress is my favorite, but if I could have it all, I would.

Met Ball Best Dressed: By Designer

1. Louis Vuitton
2. Joseph Altuzarra
3. Calvin Klein
It's a bit late for a comprehensive list of best and worst dressed for last night's Met Ball, but I can say that one of my favorite reasons to watch the red carpet is to see how one designer dresses multiple celebs for the same event. My favorites from last night were Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rachel Bilson in Louis Vuitton. They looked fairly similar, but took LV's new buxom look straight off the runway perfectly. Joseph Altuzarra got a lot of buzz last fashion week, but he hasn't hit the mainstream just yet, so it makes sense he dressed models Anja Rubik and Karolina Kurkova. Calvin Klein also did an expert job with his two clients, Zoe Saldana and Diane Kruger. Both women are always exceptionally well dressed when they hit the red carpet and that held true last night as they both looked stunning in classic Calvin. MIA and Zoe Kravitz both looked great in Alexander Wang, but the whole "for the Gap" thing is so confusing and obnoxious, I left them out.

Lunch at Roebling Tea Room by Lauren Moffatt

Lunch at Roebling Tea Room, a collection by Lauren Moffatt. Seriously? I'm not sure what all this denim has to do with the Williamsburg lunch/brunch/dinner spot, but it is sort of cute.

Do you think she knows Bill Murray's son works there?

La New Yorkina at The Hester Street Fair

Things I can speak highly about: La New Yorkina's popsicles at the Hester Street Fair. They are simply beyond. I'm eating the coconut here, but the passion fruit is amazing as well. I could go to the fair every weekend just to pick up a pop.

Take a closer look at my floral, Erdem-inspired nails!
