Leopard Nails by Sally Hansen Nail Effects

My love for nail art, leopard print, and drug store makeup all collided this weekend with a fun DIY project. It also just so happened that it was so cold out that the only option was to cozy up inside, spend probably too much time doing nails, and watching movies. These Sally Hansen Nail Effects Polish Strips are a clear rip on Minx and OPI's Chic Prints for Sephora, but they're cheaper and available at your friendly Duane Reade so I was sold. The application process was not as easy as I had hoped and I was skeptical of them even lasting through the weekend, but here I am 4 days later, still loving the perfect metallic leopard print. Next time I'll go for the denim print for a complete Texas tuxedo.

Proenza Schouler Pre-Spring 2011 Jewelry

I (with every fashion lover) am dying over the pre-spring jewelry that Proenza released yesterday. These are my favorite pieces of the small collection. I'm planning on buying the blue PMI bracelet, which isn't bad at $150, and DIYing the rest.

YSL Spring 2011 with Arizona Muse

I love the Spring/Summer 2011 YSL ads shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadinin Marrakech. I'm not totally sold on the buzz around Arizona Muse, but she killed this campaign. Fingers crossed the next YSL Manifesto features some of these images.

Christmas in Carmel: Carmel Beach

This was the first Christmas spent at my Mom's new cottage in Carmel, California. She makes the drive down the coast nearly every weekend and now I can see why. Living five minutes from one of the most beautiful beaches in California has its advantages: morning walks on the beach, afternoon jogs along the cliff trail, sneaking up onto the green at Pebble Beach, watching the sun set with a glass of wine, waking up to the sound of waves crashing, the most pampered dogs in all the world, and best of all happy family.

Tom Ford Spring Summer 2011 Fashion Show

I am so glad the full video of Tom Ford's Spring Summer 2011 fashion show was released. It was by far the most talked about event of last fashion week and now that February fashion week is just around the corner, everyone will be waiting to see what he does. The collection and entire experience looks parallel to none. As for the actual video? I could have done without so much Terry Richardson. Come on Terry, if ever there's a time to wear a Tom Ford tux, this was it.
