Obsession: Fur & Feathers

I've just recently heard about Zara opening it's US online shop & I have been freaking out ever since. My friends & I are planning a trip to Atlanta to go to a football game at the end of next month, so I was planning on stopping at Zara. However, now I can get what I want sooner since their online shop will be opening on September 7th. So soon, I know! I have been obsessing over Fall (of course) and what I want to wear. I'm very indecisive, but one thing I know is this: I will be in fur and feathers. And Zara has the perfect furs & feathers. I'm so excited! I don't think I have ever been this excited in my life lol. This is what I want for sure:

I'd be the happiest girl in the world to own any of these. 

Side Note: How cool are these leggings? I'm also becoming obsessed with cosmic clothing! If only I could own the Christopher Kane Galaxy collection..

You Are Now Watching The Throne

Jay-Z & Kanye West’s Watch The Throne album has dropped & Twitter and Tumblr alike  seem to be in love. As much as I am against hyping things, I  am inclined to agree with the majority.
There are some songs that I’m not obsessed with. But what I don’t love, I at least like.
Some of my favorites are obvious ones that are most likely held in common with my fellow Kanye & Jay-Z lovers: Ni**as in Paris (“You are now watching the throne, don’t let me get in my zone.” New getting ready song.),  Gotta Have It, That’s My Bitch, Welcome to the Jungle, & of course Who Gon Stop Me (“Now who gon stop me, huh?”).
What I am most surprised by is how much of an impact Murder To Excellence  left on me. The song basically describes how there aren’t that many “black elite” and how we as African Americans should try to help each other get to the top. I definitely agree with that message. So now that is one of my favorite songs. There’s something inspiring about  having those two men, men of the black elite, tell us to aim to get where they are. And that’s just what I’ll do. Try & be better in every aspect of life.
If you haven’t heard Watch The Throne yet please make arrangements to do so. You won’t regret it. You might even come out of the experience with a new perspective on life.
“I’m definitely in my zone.”

About to Make Em' Tuck Their Whole Summer In

Summer is nearly over & I have yet to fully embrace it. So this weekend I decided to make an effort with these printed shorts. If you've been here before, you know that I absolutely love Fall! And that's where my thoughts are now. I always get so excited & this year isn't any different. However, it's only fair to give Summer a chance before it's over.

The Marc by Marc Jacobs iPhone 4 case just came in the mail & I love it! There are a lot more new ones and I want them all!

Essie's Haute As Hello 
Along with what I'm currently reading.

Sunny days are turning into never ending rain storms. I'll just turn the ac up, swaddle myself in a dozen blankets & watch Mad Men, while drinking hot tea; until it's Fall's turn.

Stylish Sisters

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen have always been an inspiration to my style & also my life. Their style is beyond words. I was recently looking at pictures of them that are very old, but their outfits in them still amaze me. That's one of the reasons they inspire me so much. They wear things that, a year (or decade) later would still be the most stylish ensembles ever. They know how to chose timeless pieces that will work for them forever.
