!

Sorry for the long scilence guys, been swamped in school this past week! All I can say is I can't wait for tomorrow. I've kind of been disconnected from my beloved fashion world and spending some time right nowchecking my favorite sites and blogs, before blogging myself on something that catches my eye.Like this...? Nah. ( I forgive you because of the bag though, Dakota...and cus you're fifteen...AND cus I think the look you had in mind was good. But this isn't).

Can't wait for Oscar night fashion!
But since we have to wait another week or so, I just want to give the worst look I have yet seen at the Awards....(drumroll)
Beyonce in House of Dereon.
Why?

un: French for "one".

first thing's first, we would like to introduce ourselves. we are two sisters from lovely orange county, who grew up living and breathing fashion. and this is all thanks to our incredibly stylish, timelessly chic, haute petite mom, Joline. before she carried around a diaper bag, she toted around her Chanel 2.55's with matching 2-piece tweed skirt suits. now she reminisces as she stares lovingly into her collection of Kellys and Birkins...but more on that later.

South Coast Plaza was always the destination for family time, where I, Anna, fell in love with clothes!clothes!clothes! (no, I am not that spoiled). Sophia, the elder of us two, lead the way into Contempo Casuals and Nordstrom, and as the stores and trends changed over the years, Sophia and I stayed faithful to our LOVE - shopping.

with well over a decade of trend spotting, sample-sale'ing, bag collecting, and vintage finding, Sophia and I are happy to now find a place where we can openly talk about our addictions to the world. although Sophia and I have less than similar styles (you'll notice clearly that Sophia is sophisticated sass, as I am comfy chic), the one thing we have in common is GOOD TASTE, thank you very much.

so come by when you need some inspiration from photos of whatwewear daily, or for exclusive sneak peeks at the couture we're going to post on eBay, or to read up on what we think is the next HAUTE COMMODITY.

xoxo,

After the job interview

I went for a job interview that my sister set up for me the other day (thanks Cristina!) obviously looking boring and respectable...can't scare them off with pink tights can you?
But isn't that such a cute cardigan?
I had to take a few pictures.The Bow detail

Cardigan: I Pinco Pallino

So yeah...Am I doing this?

I promised I'd post pictures of me and what I recently bought, and a promise is a promise.
BEFORE you go on, please note that I had this idea only after jumping out of the shower( I realized I was wearing some of the things I blogged about) hence, the wet hair, the casual clothes, and yeah...that.
The pictures suck too, I took them with the webcam (stupid, lousy, uncharged camera!).
I might delete this post.

Oversized Tee: Zara
Spandex: H&M

A Photoshoot I Bloody Loved











Alice In Wonderland
By Annie Leibovitz, featuring Natalia Vodianova and, in case you've been living under a rock and can't recongize them, the likes of John Galliano, Karl Lagerfeld, Donatella Versace, Nicolas Ghesquière, Olivier Theyskens, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier, Viktor and Rolf, and Christian Lacroix. Sweet.

P.S. I CANNOT wait for Tim Burton's "Alice In Wonderland"

P. P. S. Sorry about the stuipid sizeing problems, I'm trying to get a different template, but I'm ultra picky and frightenly lazy.

P. P. P. S. Still so sad about the news. :(

Some things cannot be replaced.


ALEXANDER MCQUEEN, REST IN PEACE.
You death has left a huge hole in the not only the fashion world, but I think the world as a whole. And though you'll live forever through your art, I miss you already.

Mnozil Brass

Yesterday my family and I went to see such an amazing concert, I think we're still blown away.
Mnozil Brass are an Austrian septet comprised of 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, and 1 tuba. As posted other times on this blog, my brother is a musician, and of course we couldn't miss out. Never mind that it was totally grand and mind blowing. I mean, these guys entertain a crowd for two and a half hours, and never get a single note wrong.
They've got an amazing repertoire, ranging from classical to jazz, and throwing in some Michael Jackson in between.
Clap, clap, clap.
And they are UBER-funny....UBER.


Video included especially for Ozie(since I told the poor thing all about it and she feels like she missed out on the world, and I feel bad)

Marion Cotillard







This young woman has, in such a way that I didn't notice until it was obvious, become my favorite  actress in terms of style and elegance at the moment. 
It's reached the point that everything she wears, I just sorta stare for a few seconds and then go "wow" out loud. Every time that happens, my younger sister looks at me and says, "It's Marion Cotillard again right?"
The thing is, Marion just carries herself with such grace and pose and elegance she looks good even when she doesn't, and I can't help but admire that. Also, it's something that makes her absolutely attractive and beautiful.
One more thing, the woman channels (according to me), both in looks and fashion choices, something totally reminiscent of the stunning and graceful actresses of the silent movie era, another thing I'm currently obsessed with.
Was this sentence too long?

P.S. Combined to great clothes watching, I'm listening to Arrau play Chopin's Nocturne No. 20, and thing I just might die from and overload of beauty.




Some notes

After my epic whine the other day, I went shopping with my sisters and got me some real cute things (shoes included) spending something like 50 euro. Pretty good eh?
I will try to post pictures of all that soon enough...when I find the camera charger...cough cough.
Also, tonight I'll be posting about Marion Cotillard, as promised.
Now I'm off to work, have a good day everyone, I won't!

Mildly Obssesed...no I don't want to get better.


The classic Chanel bag is probably THE bag I've been in love with all my life, and I won't ever get sick of it. Also, because I CAN'T get sick of it if I don't have it. BLEAH THIS SUCKS.
But ENOUGH whining. ...also, I've been sitting here for the past 20min trying to write something cool and all that came out was a self-condescending wish-list. However, I found an awseome vintage store an hour from where I live and will eventually sell my soul for the vintage Chanel Tote in the display window.
Till, then, I'm off to do Chemistry homwwork.

SAG Award Winners (we're really on a roll here)

Christina Applegate in Roberto Cavalli (Superb colours, bring on the ice!)

Eddie Falco in Bottega Veneta (hey didn't Sherly Crow wear that at the Grammy's too?...update...actually she didn't. But I'm almost 100% sure someone DID and I just can't remember WHO, if anyone knows please tell me!)

Diane Kruger in Jason Wu (Wow, I say, wow. I don't know of too many people that could work that color the way she does)

Marion Cotillard in Elie Saab (need I say more?)

Nicole Kindman in Oscar De La Renta ( This just might be my favourite look of the evening)

Carey Mulligan in Lanvin (simple elegance, and with that boyish hair it's even better!)


Meryl Streep in Balengciga (rocking floral at 60? yesssss)

Drew Barrymore in Monique Lhuillier (contrary to most sites I've seen, I really quite like this dress, but I'll agree with the majority on the make-up.)

Next and last stop--Oscars! And then that's about it as far as red carpet reviews go for me.
I was NOT impressed with this year's Grammy fashion (when was I really) I won't be covering that. Too much red...carpet.
