A Scent to Remember

It's a good time to be a perfume this days, Issey just created his "A Scent" fragrance, J.Lo is advertising her new version of Glow "Now influenced by motherhood"(whatever that means), and Viktor Rolf is adding a new scent to their collection. Always ones to jump on a trend bandwagon Revlon- wait hold on, Revlon?- yes Revlon has come up with scented nail polish. Oh yes, I'm quite serious the scents including Coconut Crush, Mad about Mango, Pretty in Papaya, Raspberry Rapture, Passionate Fruit, No So-Blue-berry and Sublime Strawberry. Cosmopolitan claims the $4.79 polish is "subtly sweet" and will last for a few days.

I'll be honest with you, for some reason anything other than your basic glossy polish gives me the creeps. OPIs new matte collection is definitely not one I'll be brushing on my nails, especially since you can't wear lotion while wearing it, and this scented polish is not my thing either.

I'm interested in hearing what you all think though.
Keep me posted,

New Fashion Icon

With my new bangs I have been searching for different inspiration, and now currently obsess over the style of Zooey Deschanel. Looking through past issues of my beloved Domino Magazine (how I miss it) I stumbled upon a segment of Zooey Deschanel and her home in the February 2009 issue. I love her euro-preppy-chic outfits and the color combinations are just fantastic. I'm a big fan of this yellow and navy dress- note to self purchase navy tights in the fall- as well as the white cotton dress she wears with a red belt and red tights.
For more from this photo shoot you can look at the discover interior blog, since Conde Nast closed down Domino's website, or check out the February 2009 copy at your local library.

Beat the Heat

Working upstairs our boutique gets so hot in the summer, so I need to wear simple easy dresses to stay cool. I'm not a fan of over air conditioning (contrary to 99% of Americans) so breezy dresses like this are great for dealing with the summer heat. Near the end of the day my shoe broke and I had to walk around the shop barefoot, at least it went with this bohemian style!
And my style tip this post is show off your legs this summer! With what little summer us in the Midwest have been having its time to show ourselves off, tastefully ;)
