Ok, that’s it. I need to talk to Mr. 2012. These weeks are lasting way too long! Anyone else feel like Tuesday was a Friday? Hate that.

Good thing I’ve got all kinds of exciting shtuff happening this weekend. My shopping/styling sessions with Mastercard’s Priceless NY members (remember when I told you about it?) commences tomorrow morning, followed by watching the 49ers beat the Saints with both of my brothers (what a rarity!), followed by din din with my whole fam-damily! Lucky me!

In other news, I’ve got lots of exciting goodies to share with you, some of which are featured in this post and others that you’ll just have to keep checking back for! You can also keep up with me on instagram (@runwayhippie) 0r my webstagram for you non iphone holders cause lemme tell you somethin’, I post a lot of sneaky peekies on there!

Have a fan-tab-u-lous weekend! Miss you already!

Style Icon: Carine Roitfeld

With the latest news of Carine Roitfeld leaving French Vogue, I thought it only fitting that she be the next subject of my Style Icon post. While infinitely more reserved than her Vogue Japan equivalent, Anna Dello Russo, Carine Roitfeld manages to make everything look sophisticated and elegant - a hard thing to do when one of your biggest wardrobe staples are multiple pairs of thigh-high lace up boots. While classifying someones style isn’t my favorite thing to do, I would say that Carine is the perfect example of making more conservative, business-appropriate fashion look stylish and sexy. Knee-length pencil skirts are so often misconstrued as plain, boring, and unflattering, but the way that Carine throws them together with a feminine blouse, a pair of edgy heels, or a structured coat makes knee-grazing skirts look as elegant and chic as Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday.

With a relatively minimalistic wardrobe color palette (tons of blacks, whites, and browns) one would think that her style would be dull and boring, but she’s a perfect example of how with the right silhouette and a knockout pair of shoes, a next to no color ensemble can go a long way. And since she clearly shares my love and weakness for coats and jackets, I admittedly have some serious wardrobe envy - particularly with her Rick Owens trench (pictured below, top far left).

While it’s sad to hear that she’s leaving French Vogue, I am also excited to see what she has lined up next. From all that she did with French Vogue, her skill for impeccable styling, her sophisticated taste, and note worthy personal style, one can only imagine that whatever she does next will be fashionably brilliant.
