To follow up on the popular 1920’s post I thought I’d blog these two snaps of Gemma Ward and Amy Adams in costume on the set of the remake of The Great Gatsby.  So beautiful, especially Gemma’s costume in all of its intricately beaded glory.  I’m dying over her hairdo as well.  Maybe its time to resurrect some 20’s hairstyles as well?

My hair’s a bit of a mess but I thought it would be a good moment to show off my JC Busteds.  Comfy, ridiculously high platforms, patent leather, and buckles.  Yeah, they were a good buy…

spiky balls

(Jagger Edge iPhone Case)

So this isn’t exactly an outfit post but my crazy face is in there so I think it counts?

I was way excited to get my Jagger Edge iPhone case with flail ball charms.  The quality of the leather is great, and although at first I was really torn between the black leather and the gunmetal leather, the gunmetal leather really turned out to be the perfect choice.  And I’m much more inclined towards silver accents with gunmetal, so it all turned out swimmingly.  Flail balls also act as impromptu stand, which has been useful.  They could possibly be used in self-defense but I haven’t tried that out yet.  Yet.

versace for h&m

Had a paper and a life to tend to last night and I had a good feeling Versace for H&M would be mostly gone by the time I ventured out today around noon.  Not only was I correct, but apparently they sold out of EVERYTHING within an hour at the Americana at Brand.  Not too shabby, Donatella!

That said, I mostly had my eye on the metal mesh dresses and the black and gold skirt/leather jackets which I had a feeling would not be obtained without an early attack on the store.  I would be more crushed, but at $300 for the dresses etc I think my money will be saved and spent on mainline pieces from brands that I love as they go on sale for the holidays.  Or the off chance that an ebay sale on one of these V for H&M pieces isn’t astronomical…

New outfit photos tomorrow!

PS Forgot to add that I stopped at Madewell and discovered many pieces from the Alexa Chung line were on sale, sweaters were just below $100 and that gorgeous pajama top was $200.  Go snap them up!
