Tourquoise Jewelry: My New Obsession
So lately, I have had an obsession with turquoise- turqouise necklaces, turquoise rings, turquoise bracelets... anything and everything turquoise! This bright summer color pairs perfectly with almost any color but goes especially well with black, magenta, coral, pale pink, and white. LOVE.

M I L E Y:
the girl you love to hate?
or hate to love?
From grinding on baby Justin Bieber in her "trailer trash" get-up to dirty dancing with 46 year old producer Adam Shankman... In my opinion, she's taking this whole "growing up" thing a bit too far... although, most of my "dislike" for her most likely roots from the green monster: j e a l o u s y. I mean who wouldn't want to be practically a billionaire at the mere age of 17? just sayin. I think maybe her gorgeous boyfriend (and co-star in The Last Song), crazy success, excessive wardrobe, dream job, and extravagant hollywood lifestyle might also have something to do with my jealousy.
Although her fun-loving and super outgoing personality sometimes translates into being obnoxious and over the top, I, for one, am also guilty of being a Miley fan at one point in time. I kind of love her and hate her at the same time (if that's even possible). I mean, come on, you can't help but to sing along to her upbeat songs like "7 Things" and "Party in the USA,"and every now and then I catch myself watching and laughing out loud at an old re-run of "Hannah Montana."
Oh! and after seeing The Last Song for the fourth time in theaters, I couldn't help but fall in love with her character and the whole romance between Ronnie and Will. So CUTE.
Still, with this in mind, lately it seems as if she is trying to pull a "Britney" when clearly she's still a young Disney teen. Her outrageous and slutty new outfits and her racy new songs just don't seem like a clear progression as an artist who, just yesterday, sang innocent songs like "Best of Both Worlds," "The Climb," and "Party in the USA." In my opinion, you can't really go from singing clean cut Disney songs to "Can't Be Tamed" overnight. Lately it seems as if all the fame and money at such a young age is just getting to her head.

In addition to providing their audience with a satisfying amount of juicy drama, the drama queens of "The Hills" also served as fashion moguls for girls worldwide. Personally, half of the reason for watching the show was to see what chic outfits, handbags, hairstyles, make-up, and accessories these girls were sporting on each episode.
Audrina always added that rock 'n roll flavor to "The Hills" with her leather jackets, faded skinny jeans, smokey eyes, messy hair, and ultimately her "on again, off again" notorious boyfriend: Justin Bobby. On the other hand, Lauren provided the chic and somewhat girly wardrobe by wearing her adorable sundresses, oversized sunglasses, braided hair, and high heels.

Mixing Rock & Royalty
Although there has always been a special place in my heart for things such as sweet sundresses and feminine skirts, lately I have been inspired by the girly yet edgy princess look. With this look, one can embrace one's femininity yet still maintain a rocker chic look. By mixing pastels, lace, florals, pearls, and ruffles with things such as boots, leather, grungy hair, and smokey eyes, one can obtain an exciting style. Personally, this sharp contrast of rock and royalty works to create a very chic and balanced look.
Even something as simple as pairing a blazer with a girly sundress or pairing a flowy top with a pair of leather shorts can give a whole new feel to a simple feminine outfit.
