I have been suffering some strange symptoms as of late, and it all began after reading Twilight. I consulted my physician, and he gave me this thoroughly scientific explanation for my disease.
Twilightis: a highly contagious virus contracted through contact with the "Twilight" series by Stephenie Meyer. Anyone is susceptible to this virus, but the strain seems to be especially prevalent among young women, typically among the the teenage set.
Symptoms include: dark circles under the eyes from nights spent flipping one more page after one more page, frequent excursions to a book retailer to fill the void left after completion of one of the novels, obsessive checking of blogs and other web sites devoted to the series, defending to the death one's position on either Team Edward or Team Jacob, difficulty sleeping due to dreams about Edward Cullen, difficulty concentrating in an educational environment due to daydreams about Edward Cullen, difficulty paying attention to living boys due to fantasies about Edward Cullen
Remedies: While a cure is unknown, there are a few suggestions to bring the afflicted back to reality. This includes reading something unromantic and serious, such as a World History textbook. Another option includes finding a dark, damp hole in the farthest corner of the world where there is no such thing as literature, television, or teenagers.

Juniors Valedictoria Crew Forks is a wet and chilly town on the Olympic Penninsula. I know if I were her I would be reaching for a cute and cozy sweatshirt all the time (especially cuddling up with a cold-as-stone vampire boyfriend).Juniors Football Pant When Bella is chilling in her room with Edward, she forgets to bring her silky PJ's. Instead she pulls on a pair of sweatpants with a t-shirt. She still looks tempting to Edward though!
Juniors Football Tee Bella isn't much of an athlete, she wouldn't want to risk breaking ANOTHER bone, as accident and disaster prone as she is. That doesn't mean she wouldn't want to look sporty-and a football tee like this would do the trick.

Maybe it's the hype, maybe its the gimmick, but I can't get enough of these shoes. First off, they are incredibly comfortable and have just the right width to support your feet when walking. They are also supposed to tone your legs by tensing the muscles in your calves and thighs as you walk. I believe I can vouch for this because the first day I wore them my legs were sore by the time I took them off. This reassured me that there was "something" going on. Now even when I'm having a lazy-day I can feel like I'm somewhat of a Spartan, even if the only thing I am hard-core about is taking it easy.

As a side note, I am constantly impressed with the talent that Target acquires. Always on the cusp of major success, the designers are never over-exposed and the designs are always fresh. Keep 'em coming Target, I need my GO International fix just as much as my daily java.

Oh Anna, your pieces make me want to be magically transformed into a beatnik-hippie-princess. There were patterns everywhere, colors straight out of a fairytale, all mixed together in a perfect collage of textures. The art noveau-inspired prints struck a cord with me, calling to mind 19th century posters and the artist Mucha.
3.1 Philip Lim
Lim, the current"It" guy of the fashion world, created a collection filled with a variety of colors and textures. The predominant influence seems to be Russian in the rich colors and brocades. His coats were all gorgeous on their own but would also complement a wide wardrobe, making them future covetable items.
Wang is the bad-boy rocker rebel of my small review. His body-consciouncess collection stood out against the more austere collections of other shows. The leather, gritty metallics, stark black, and clingy jersey all have an in-your-face attitude that should make him popular with pop tarts and rockers alike. I love the black and beige dress especially, which could perhaps herald a trend of black with neutral hues for the fall palette.

Feeling inspired by the fabulous eye makeup at Proenza Schouler, I got a little creative. Its what I do when I've got nowhere to go and nothing to do! This looks intense but can be adapted to everyday life as long as it's sharp and controlled. By pairing this with an otherwise neutral face, the look is eighties-meets rocker-meets mermaid!
Here are some of my for an intense look suggestions:
For a more subtle take:
