Since I can't do an outfit post (well, technically I could & then just cut out my face) because I got this done to my face at work on Friday, I thought I'd post up some things that I've been pinning (and pining over). PS. does anyone else hate the pinterest app for the ipad? *Cringe* at the cropping - which is why I usually have to resort to pulling out the laptop to pin efficiently (oh, the horror, right?). Find me on Pinterest if you like: ilovedavee

2. Beachin' style via Vogue Brazil January 2012. 
3-6. Elle France nails the quintessential cool girl lookbook.
7. Zuhair Murad Haute Couture 2012: upped the cool factor on red carpet dressing by adding embellished leggings to an evening gown (if we can call it that).
8&9. Valentino Haute Couture 2012: holy effin' sheer, I die.

Black Onyx.

In celebration of MLK day (kinda) - I did a photoshoot with my favorite fashion dreamteam. With Maddy's vintage Canon in tow, an orphan couch Mel & Maddy found on the street & my co-worker's crazy (but effing awesome) vintage sweater - we got right down to business. Love me some good, honest styling, I could pra do this in my sleep - actually guessing by some people's questionable looks at my OOTD's, plenty of ppl probably think I do exactly that. Anyway, the final product was just so amazeballs there was no way I couldn't share these, hope you like. xx.

Holy Grail of Denim Jackets.

For once, not sharing a picture of myself but rather Mel & her new denim jacket. It's a little reminiscent of Dries Van Noten's dip dye denim shirts and quite honestly, super swoon worthy. The cherry on top of everything? - It was only $8! Holla. xx.

The lappytop has made a full comeback :) Thank the good lawd! Haven't been doing much since the start of the new year except for attending Twolves games apparently, so here's a quick post of what I wore to the game last Wednesday. Obv nothing too inneresting - just the basics. 

Thinking of possibly redoing my vanity table & my shoe shelf for 2012 - just a tinge of what's to come, including maybe a beauty post.      Now if only I could actually get the energy to do these DIY's. Happy 2012! xx.

Happy New Year!

Just wanted to wish you all a very belated happy new year. Sorry for the brief hiatus - the laptop is currently having functional issues, and someone (my brother or little nephew) is repairing it as I type this. Or at least I hope so. For now, my instagram will have to suffice as an outlet for outfit posts. Find me: youngbrokefabulous. Hopefully I can give you guys a real post next week. xx, Davee
