I'm in Love: Urban Renewal by Urban Outfitters

Urban Renewal is a collection at Urban Outfitters that features vintage clothing that is reworked to create new garments. The Urban Renewal collection has some unique pieces. Here are some of my favorite pieces from this collection:


Levi's Cutoff Mini



This Levi's Cutoff Mini is one of my favorites because it's not just a plain mini skirt. This skirt was made from a vintage pair of broken in Levi's jeans. I love how the pockets hang out the bottom which gives it a kind of sloppy look. This would look great over a pair of leggings. www.urbanotfitters.com
Western Halter Tunic


This western halter tunic is made from vintage westerns. I have always loved western style ,this shirt just gives a classic shirt a modern day edge. This would look perfect with dark denim. $48.00 http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/

Cinch Front Tube Dress

This Cinch Front Tube dress is made from vintage gauze skirts. It can be worn as a tube or halter dress. The floral pattern has a vibrant colors. I love it. $48.00 www.urbanoutfitters.com

Blackberry Style


Today being the first day of summer is not that important. What is important is I finally ordered the Blackberry Curve, that has been on my mind for months. I can just imagine walking down the street and pulling out my Blackberry instead of my crappy Sidekick 3. Can't wait for it to get here.

I Love Christian Louboutin Shoes!!!



My friend Laura and I recently went to the Christian Louboutin exhibit at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology), and it was magnificent. His shoes are designed to make a women look sexy and they do just that. We saw most of his collection from the most popular to designs I had never seen at all. It was a great experience, and he gives me a reason to respect him even more.
Honestly, I had never seen his shoes in person, so I was grateful to see one out of each of the pair. One day I will own a pair.
