Something about spring just gets me in the house-hunting, decor mood. I’m not sure if it’s because my lease is typically coming to an end around this time, but this morning I scoured the internet for apartments. There are still 3 months left in my lease. I’ll just say I’m a go-getter.
Although my home decor is fairly non-existent, being just out of school with no real property to call a home, I can’t help but imagine how I will style my humble abode. And believe me it will have to be humble considering the prices this city. Elle Decor features a look inside Jessica Stam’s NY apartment, and let me tell you it’s nothing short of amazing. Purple being my fave colour only make the designs, by Rafael de Cárdenas, even more perfect for my taste. I also love the use of wallpapers and vintage inspired furniture pieces.
I’ve started a collection of decor ideas on Pinterest (an online categorized bulletin board, much more space friendly for those with limited square footage). Follow my pins and share yours, and we can all become a little more inspired.
I know I know, another model/celebrity fashion collaboration. This is one is different though I promise, because Canadian beauty Jessica Stam co-designs with Rachel Roy. Stam has designed 5 unique pieces for RACHEL Rachel Roy ($49-$199), and each of them, as persisted by Roy, are looks that Jessica can see her friends wearing. This Great White North Supermodel, and one of my faves along side Daria, describes the looks as nautical meets military. This seems to be the trend in the coming season, but if you only want to invest in a few essential pieces, go for these designs. Sometimes less IS more!
The collection is available at Macy’s at the end of this month (now).
Ever wonder where models go when they have been deemed “too old” (but really 22 years old), “too fat” (but really 120 lbs), or “too last season”? Well now the retired beauties can find life after the runway at ARC NY Talent. Founded by Ryan Brown and Lorenzo Martone (Marc Jacobs significant other), ARC is an agency that assists with the extracurriculars of a model’s life both during and after their time in the spotlight. Think of it as a PR and branding company for the supermodels who may no longer be so super… Cindy Crawford and her home décor line, Tyra Banks and ANTM. Yes, one would think that making millions of dollars in the couple of years during your so called “prime” would be enough, but apparently these ladies strive to be much more than a pretty face.

just saw this baby on tv…pretty sure it’s one of the first ALDO shoe television commercials. interesting, interesting.
Jessica Stam: Canadian, we like it cause we’re all patriotic right now and whatnot.
and hey, we like their shoes too!
for the time being Anna Wintour is renting out André Leon Talley…and the first to scoop him up? Tyra Banks and the judging panel of America’s Next Top Model! T-Banks has been wanting André on the show since the early days, but he has only just agreed and has been signed on for at least 3 cycles, where he will bring a little sophistication to the show (so he claims). while Anna Wintour sends wishful words “I think his latest adventure sounds like a lot of fun and I look forward to watching him on the program” i’m pretty sure we all know that somewhere in the Vogue-empire Grace Coddington is being punished for the loss of the editor-at-large…
this all being said we will no longer be graced with Miss Jay Alexander’s dry wit, BUT Whitney Port will be a guest judge in the upcoming season. ANTM Cycle 14 begins March 10, cross your fingers that Tyra can make a comeback after recruiting all those short children from last cycle. pretty sure supermodel and <5’6 should never meet again, and if so Tyra will have a lot of smeyes-ing to do to keep the audience intrigued…
