Red Carpet Fabulous

Fall means a lot of things, fashion week, our favorite tv shows come back, a new school year, and of course AWARDS SEASON! This past Sunday was the opening show of the season, the 2010 Emmy Awards, and like always the fashion was the most exciting part for me! You know I have to choose my favorite looks of the night!
Lea Michelle is becoming my new favorite it girl! She looks STUNNING in this Oscar De La Renta navy Gown. Perfect for fall!
I have decided that one-shoulder gowns are my favorite! Emily Blunt looks gorgeous in this lavender Christian Dior gown.
As if I didn't envy Kim K enough already, I do now! This Marchesa white grecian styled gown is absolutely beautiful and she is wearing over 2 million dollars worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry!

I couldn't forget the sequins! Claire Danes is sporting a Giorgio Armani Prive gown and she looks awesome!

Everyone looked amazing, but I definitely vote Lea Michelle as the best dressed of the night! Her Oscar De la Renta gown was to die for and she wore it so well!

So until next time... Live Stylishly

Kollege Cooking



While I am no chef, I am slowly learning to cook, very slowly. I am always someone who loves to read the newest blogs as well, and when my friend Stefanie from school told me about the blog she and her boyfriend created, I knew I had to check it out! 

Stefanie and Michael created the blog to document their college eating lifestyle around their home city of Tempe, AZ. It has a very Julia and Julia feel, except its her and her boyfriend!  She and Michael talk about all the different restaurants to eat at in Tempe, and they aren't the ones we always think of, especially since Tempe is the home to Arizona State University. 

The blog is so well written and makes you hungry just looking at the awesome pictures. This blog is definitely stylelista approved! From their restaurant recommendations to even their easy to make recipes, this blog is definitely a stylish read!

All our dreams can come true.....

For as long as I can remember, I have begged my parents for a Chloe Paddington handbag. Every Christmas I write it on my list, not really expecting it, but hoping that maybe I will get lucky and it will show up under the tree. 

Well of course for the last 7 years it hasn't showed up, but I had a dream recently that my parents finally gave in and purchased that handbag that I have been eyeing for oh so long. In my dream, my parents gave me the coveted brown handbag in the most gorgeous gift box ever, I was showing it off to everyone, of course then I woke up and was bummed that it wasn't real. 

What I love about this bag, is even 7 years after I first saw it, it is still in style, which most handbags can't do. No matter what season it is, its the perfect handbag. I have been told that you're dreams are usually precursors for what is going to happen, so does this mean that the precious Chloe handbag will soon be mine!? I sure hope so!

I don't do fashion, I AM fashion....

Coco Chanel wrote that quote, of course she is fashion! For as long as I can remember Chanel has been my favorite designer with Chloe and DVF in second and third place. Growing up I used to tear out the advertisements from my fashion magazines and post them on my bedrooms wall and Chanel was always the ad that stood out the most. 

While I was going through the various September issues of my favorite fashion bibles, the Fall 2010 advertisements for Chanel gave me deja vu to all the years I have admired Chanel. I thought I would share some of my favorite stylish Chanel advertisements from various seasons!

Sumptuous Fall Fashion....

So the bible finally came, The September 2010 issue of Vogue. I look forward to this every year, and once again Anna Wintour didn't let me down! 726 pages of pure fashion, which included every designer's new fall campaigns. The fashion in this issue was out of this world, and made me so excited for fall and completing my wardrobe! 
Halle Berry graced the cover this year and she look simply gorgeous with her new short bob haircut that fits her so well! From Giorgio Armani to Marc Jacobs, Halle wore every gorgeous couture gown with so much confidence!

Walk a Mile in These Shoes...



With Fall right around the corner, new wardrobes are a must! It's time to pack away those summer sandals and bring out the boots and ballet flats that have been collecting dust this summer! I know I can't wait to wear some of the new ballet flats so I thought I would share some of my favorite shoes for Fall!



Jeffrey Campbell

I just bought these amazing flats yesterday and they are so perfect for the fall trend of khaki and browns!


Steve Madden

These Steve Madden suede boots are perfect with skinny jeans and a cute tunic!

So there you have my show obsessions for fall!

So long California.....

So yesterday I returned from a long weekend in California and I must say, nothing is better than life on the beach. I got to spend 5 days lounging on the beach, shopping at South Coast Plaza, and going to the happiest place on earth, DISNEYLAND! I must say no matter what age you are, Disneyland is simply the best. I loved being able to channel my inner child and have a fun filled day with my loved ones!

A fashionable life...

While I rarely write about interior design, when reading the September issue of Harper's Bazaar I knew I had to share Jimmy Choo footwear creator Tamara Mellon's beautiful New York apartment! Every room in her house is fashionably decorated and the best room of them all, her closet is extraordinary! In each photograph Tamara is dressed in couture with the beautiful backdrop as her home.
I love this photo of Grace Kelly by Andy Warhol, it fits so well with the theme of Tamara's house.

Tamara has more than 1,000 pairs of shoes! One day that will be me! :)

This living room reminds me of something you would see in the movies! I love! Definitely stylelista approved!

Peace, Love, and Juicy Couture

So along with my nail polish addiction and clothing addiction, I am addicted to perfume! I literally own like 15 bottles and my dresser is filled with various bottles of great smelling perfume. With my job at Ulta, I am always smelling the newest scents coming out and one of my favorites is Juicy Couture. I own the classic Juicy, Viva La Juicy and Couture Couture and when I saw in the latest Marie Claire magazine that they are coming out with another new fragrance, I jumped at the fact to add to my collection.

Peace, Love, and Juicy Couture is the line's fourth fragrance and from the samples I have smelled, its going to be yet another knockout! The advertisements are of course mind blowing. With the Baroque feel with Marie Antoinette in the background, I literally can't wait until this new scent is in stores this September! This is a scent that is stylelista approved!

Land of the Free...

So I had an interview with Free People recently and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I am offered the position. I love this brand not only because it is part of the Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie but because the style reflects my own person style so well. I thought I would share some of my favorite items for Fall, must haves for any stylelista!


I am a sucker for cardigans, especially long ones and the fact that it is in purple is a double plus!

I keep coming across this lace top and I think its because it is something I am dying to wear! So perfect with a black tank and skinnys!

If you read my blog, you know that I love floral prints, so this floral dress is a must!

With fall means we can bring out our boots again! These tall boots are the perfect addition to my collection!

While I could go on forever, those are my must haves for fall from Free People. 

So until next time... Live Stylishly

Stylish Fall TV Series...

I think the theme of August should be the countdown to Fall! The month of August means Summer is winding down and Fall is about to be in full gear. Of course with Fall means my favorite tv series return from their summer breaks and after waiting anxiously I will finally discover what happens after the nail biting season finales left me itching for more.

Gossip Girl, will Chuck Bass survive the fatal gunshot after his fallout with Blair?

90210, will Annie finally confess what she did over a year ago and come clean to everyone?

Now fall also means new shows and the CW like always is introducing shows that are sure to be stylish hit!

Hellcats is a show about a girl vying for a spot on the infamous cheer squad, Hellcats. It features Aly from Aly and AJ and Ashley Tisdale. The show looks pretty good and will hopefully be kept for the whole season!


So while those are only 3 of the many stylish shows returning, I will for sure be setting my DVR to catch those must haves!

So until next time.... Live Stylishly


It's all about the youth!

While this year marked the end of my teen years, I couldn't help but get excited for The Teen Choice Awards 2010, mainly because of the fashion! It's really the only awards show that isn't a formal event, so wearing a flirty mini dress with eye catching heels is the norm! The style on this awards show reminds me so much of my style so I of course had to share my best dressed, some you might be even shocked they made the cut!


My best dressed of them all! Selena Gomez! Her BCBG White Mini Dress is insanely gorgeous and with Selena Gomez's adorable style is fits her perfectly!

Lea Michele in her Naeem Khan green mini is paired perfectly with her beach waves and wedges!


I must admit I am secretly a Hilary Duff fan! I think she is probably the most down to earth actress and her style makes me incredibly jealous! The bride to be dones a Herve Leger mint green dress. Her necklaces had me in awe! Such a perfect combination!

I couldn't forget B, aka Leighton Meester. In her Emilio Pucci white lace dress paired with of course Christian Louboutin heels I had to include her!

So until next time... Live Stylishly

White Macbook

Starbucks Iced Green Tea, drink for champions!

Thank goodness California and the beach is calling my name next weekend.

Fashion is in the Air...

So August means a lot of things in fashion, the countdown to fashion week, the thought of fall being right around the corner, and of course September issues of our favorite fashion "bibles" are released. I received my first September issue today from Marie Claire and it had Mary-Kate Olsen on the cover. If your like me, MK and Ash have been my favorite for as long as I can remember and their sense of style is beyond amazing to me. This issue only featured MK but of course her sister was right next to her during the interview! The 10 page spread featured our favorite twin wearing some of the most spectacular designs from Marc Jacobs to Chanel to the legendary Alexander McQueen. 
I love how in the article is she talks about how her birthday is right around the corner and how she and her sister feel like they are turning 48 instead of 24 due to the fact that they have been in the business since they were 9 months old. One of my favorite quotes is when she admits, "Sometimes Ash and I have to bring each other back, or push each other more. It's really helpful to have another half; were constantly checking in with each other." It reminded me of how important our relationship's our with our siblings really are. So my stylish tip, go pick up this issue and all the other amazing September issues!
