Remember Now

Ever since watching Kaiser Karl's "Remember Now" [see it here:], I have become enamored by actress/model Elisa Sednaoui.

Brimming with that je ne sais quoi only an Italian who grew up in France could have,  Elisa's style screams minimalist chic. And how could she not have incredible style, considering Monsieur Louboutin is her godfather. And as if she couldn't get any cooler she also grew up in Egypt!(i.e. my other home!)

Jealous much? I know I am. Check out some of her incredible closet and style mantra here...

Georgia On My Mind....

...Or at least Karl Lagerfeld's...
Chanel Campaign


Imagine wearing a dress that is so good you could eat it. Funnily enough this was the reality at the Annual Fieldston Fashion Show.
I'm currently studying for my summer exams and am slowly leaning towards the latter in my love/hate relationship with school. However I was intrigued to read about a very interesting project that takes place in Ethical Culture Fieldston School in the Riverdale (in the Bronx).
Over one year 88 students had to create an outfit out on anything BUT fabric. Using a few mousetraps, dozens of Capri-Sun juice pouches, 50,000 beads, one plastic picnic table cover, Legos, a stack of Sports Illustrated magazine covers, some beach balls, fake money, real money, Pokémon cards, metal washers, roof insulation and 1,700 condoms they bizarrely managed to complete the task.
Quite frankly I don't know how they managed to do all that AND juggle school!

Check out some of the AMAZING work here....
(my fave is the jelly bean tiger mini dress....mmm.....)
