Remember how I said I have a blazer addiction? This is the proof.  Last month I made this fun video featuring my blazers, 17 of them.  Since creating it I bought 2 more: a Marc Jacobs denim jacket and a PBM over-sized camel hair blazer...oops! At least they were both $10. Enjoy! (My favorite part is right before the credits ;) )

And, for your viewing pleasure, here are all the outfits from my blazer challenge. (a couple are missing, but this is pretty much all of them.)  You will see a lot of duplicate items in here as well. I would have liked to have added skirts into the mix but I am too lazy to wear them on the train (gotta be more careful when sitting and getting up, and I hate being ladylike) ;)
Today I'm sharing some fun news for all you Awards Season junkies! Throughout this month one of my favorite online stores, The Outnet, will be sharing a series of videos in their "The Outnet Goes To Hollywood" series! In the videos Hollywood Insiders (Anita Patrickson & Jessica Paster, Actress Rebecca Romijn & more) will be revealing their favorite stars, designers & how to get red carpet ready. 6 videos have been released so far and you can watch my favorite below!

Stylist Anita Patrickson talks about styling Emma Watson, aka one of my favorite actresses, for the red carpet. Emma always looks amazing on the red carpet because she knows what works for her and still takes risks.

And watch all the videos in the playlist here (it will cycle through them all):
Over the next four posts I will be sharing some of my favorite 2012 photos and outfits! A nice little retrospective of the year.  Today we'll start with bloggers and my two favorite video outfits.

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

Recently I was challenged by Lucky Magazine and Marshalls in Marshalls Fall Fashion Challenge! I was sent a $100 gift card with which to find an outfit using the latest fall trends! As you all know by now, Marshalls is one of my favorite places to shop, so I was thrilled with this opportunity.  Marshalls is your go to shop for on-trend designer items at unbelievable prices. The secret is in their buyers - they are the ultimate treasure hunters and are constantly traveling around the world to find deals on the hottest items so you'll find amazing new pieces in stores each week!

Here are the trends I was asked to choose from:
  • Color - find the hottest colors of the season, like spiced orange in a variety of accessories from totes to smoking shoes 
  • Prints - get in touch with your wild side with graphic prints from animal to Aztec 
  • Ladylike with an Edge - choose from a selection of classic feminine staples that have a modern twist, like peplum dresses and edgy tops with leather detailing
I decided to keep two major things in mind while I was shopping: burgundy (my color of choice) and prints (anything!) And finally, a few tips from me to you!
  • Take pieces into the dressing room even if it doesn't look good on the hanger, it might look good on you
  • Try different combinations with the pieces you bring, you never know what great outfits you'll find
  • Don't discriminate based on size (unless it's too small.) Oversized is in so if you like something, try it out!
  • Start in the clearance section, you never know what you'll find, then move on to your favorite sections
  • And finally, play dress up with their clothes, something you never thought of wearing might look amazing!
Enough chatter, here is a quick video I filmed while I was shopping up a storm at my local Marshalls! Check back tomorrow to see what outfit I chose.

Now the really fun part, Marshalls has offered up a $100 gift card to one of my readers!

Details:  This giveaway is open to my readers in the USA and will run until September 13th.  The winner will be announced on Twitter.

Here's a video with some footage from my trip. Most of the footage is of our friend, George the Chipmunk, he was so cute. I doubt any of you (except Amber) will recognize the songs in the video, but they're from The Last Unicorn! One of the best movies ever!! If you haven't seen it, do it!

And here are some more photos from my iPhone, some were instagramed, some not. Tomorrow we're back to normal! Most are from Kringle Candle, in Massachusetts. :)
As you read this I am in the car on the way to Ohio (for 10+ hours....oy) to attend my cousin's wedding tomorrow afternoon!! She is the first in our family to get married and I'm so happy for her!  Ever since they let us know it would be a summer wedding I was trying to decide what to wear, as all girls do. This is my first wedding as an adult (the last wedding I attended to was my Aunt's when I was 7).  It's so hard to decide what to wear to a wedding, you don't want to be over or under-dressed, so the time of year and location is a big factor.

Originally I was going to wear the Oasis dress I wore to High Tea in London last summer, then it changed to the Edun dress I wore at the opening of the Harry Potter Studio Tour in March. But then the net-a-porter sale came and I FINALLY had the perfect dress, by Burberry London! I decided to dress it down a bit with espadrilles because it is a daytime wedding, I also decided on the wedges so my feet don't die...

Here is what I will be wearing, you'll get to see the full outfit when I return next week (and maybe some candid shots if I can grab them from my uncle's camera before we leave)!  What do you think? Did I do a good job deciding what to wear? And don't tell me no because I've changed my mind far too many times!

Dress: Burberry London splurge...
Wedges: Burberry (The Outnet Clearance Sale) $80
Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs (net-a-porter end of season sale 2010) gift card
Jewelry: Acanthus Gemma necklace (giveaway win), c/o OASAP watch, assorted mixed metal bangles (shown)

(An early) Congratulations to Jill and Jon!!! Love you guys! :)

P.S. I made a really quick video preview of the outfit using VideofyMe's iPhone App, watch below and please "heart" it for me! (I'm in a competition)
I have a lovely surprise for everyone today, my first video!!! While I was taking photos of my outfit on Sunday I decided to shoot some video as well and I think it came out pretty good!  I used to make movies all the time when I was younger and I originally wanted to go into filmography, then I decided on graphic design. Hopefully I'll be able to do more videos in the future. What do you think?!

I wore my new-to-me thrifted dress and decided to go for a bohemian look.  Even though this dress is really old I feel like it totally works with the current bohemian/tribal/wild print trend. I used the song Norwegian Wood by The Beatles because I think the vibe of the song goes with my outfit (at least the background music).

Dress: Thrifted $6, Denim Jacket: Mudd $8, Sandals c/o Sseko, Bracelet: 31 Bits, Sunglasses:  Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop) gift card, Watch: Michael Kors, Bag: LAUREN Ralph Lauren gift

UPDATE: Something got messed up with the video.

And here are some stills of the outfit:
One of my favorite shows in the Spring 2011 collections was Theyskens' Theory, you can see my favorite looks from the collection in this post.  Net-a-Porter has sent over an awesome interview with creator Olivier Theyskens.

The collection is also available for purchase over at Net-a-Porter, view all the pieces that you can buy here.  And here are some of the pieces I would love to own:
