I just uploaded 200 songs into iTunes from some CD mixes I made in September 2007 and it all brought me back to that year. Music plays a huge role in both my happiness and inspired thought.

With their unisex oversized sweaters and linen rompers, Grammy Label is sure to be a hit for 2011. Grammy Label helps promote musical art and education, embracing the mission of the Recording Academy, a not-for-profit organization. Join the band, and keep the music alive.

Fashion Magazines

Fashion magazines

I have bookshelves, and some trunks, stocked with issues of ELLE (my favorite!) Vogue, Nylon, Marie Claire and Allure. I covet the International and September issues the most. I even have Teen Vogue and Elle girl issues conserved from many moons ago. However, when traveling, considering I treasure those aforementioned and dare not bend them... I prefer stashing Life & Style, In Touch, Us Weekly, People and Vanidades in my bag. Are you like me? Or am I alone in the fashion magazine/tabloid collecting obsession?

Then I'll jet back East for New York Fashion Week. Let me know your favorite dining and shopping haunts on both coasts. I hope to see some of you around.

Have a great Wednesday!

Vintage Coat, Winter Fashion

When I got dressed for dinner last night, I was apparently dreaming in French. I am very much so inspired by navy blue stripes as well as vibrant red pieces. I am fond of both Isabel Marant and Balmain. If the two lines merged into one, I would easily wear every single piece. The only thing missing is a Chanel matte snakeskin classic flap bag in red on my arm.

Who is your favorite French designer?

I had my eye on this Cape for a few days when it sold out. I felt so sad, until Christmas day. That's when I opened a big box from my best friend to find this lovely garment inside. A staple for years to come. Something about hiding out from the harsh Winter winds under an oversize khaki cape sounds like bliss to me.

P.S. Thanks for the Feature, Fashiolista.

I always fall for three things: chunky knits, clean-cut boys and oversize rings. This beautiful ring was sent to me courtesy of Alex and Vina. I chose a dark Agate stone for Winter, one that I can happily mix into my Spring/Summer wardrobe as well.

fingerless gloves, etre touchy

I've received quite a few emails inquiring about my collection of fingerless gloves. They are by Etre Touchy and I love them. I first learned about them in Winter 2009. It's been a year now and I'm still a huge fan. I like their edgy style, comfort and color coordinated prints. They're fashionable and functional. Instead of being completely fingerless, only the index finger and thumb are exposed, allowing for easy texting and twittering. My fingers stay warm, yet I can still operate my ipad or cellphone with ease.

I wanted to let all of my lovely readers know how much I appreciate your feedback. Not one of your comments or emails goes unnoticed. In fact, right after work, my favorite part of the evening includes sitting down to read each and every one. I feel as if I have a great group of friends in all corners of the World. Thank you for making me smile every night. Your taking the time to comment, really means a lot. I love you guys.

Remember this sneak preview post here?

According to Spirit Hoods, those with a Wolf spirit are fiercely loyal. When I first selected the head adornment, I was drawn in by its tawny gray and subdued brown color scheme. I never realized that I was actually identifying with the spiritual element. I'm a very loyal person, then again I'm also a Virgo. That could be why. Wolves are hard workers, team players and work well in groups. The wolf is a social animal and great communicator, often teaching those around it.

Now I ask you, Team Jacob? or Team Edward? I had to.....
