Dear Creatures has the most adorable and comfortable looking clothing. Perfect and simple. Not to mention that girl's hair & lip color is so good.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I know I did!
ps: i started savannah street style up again but now i'm going to be doing more of a mix of photos and also features on different places/things to do in savannah. so check it out :]

last night was so good in general but before i went to bed i checked my email to find some very special news. i'm officially an intern for summer 2011 in nyc for one of my dream companies. i'm terrified and thrilled, just the right mixture of emotions. while i'm a bit nervous coming out and saying the company's name on here, i will give you hints above.
there has been a couple of reasons why i can't stop smiling lately but this certainly is another reason added to the list.

if you haven't noticed, i chronicle a lot of girl/style crushes on this blog. it's a celebration of all things pretty so of course i'm going to include women that i look up to. so in my 'world of girl crushes' (like you don't have one? plz.) crystal renn obviously reigns supreme. she has been a topic on this blog quite frequently.
last week when I was leaving an interview in manhattan, i headed towards topshop on broadway and ran into her smoking a cigarette in all black with the most perfect chanel 2.5 bag. she looked thin so let's quit calling her a plus size model. hopefully she's okay and would look better with another 10 lbs but who are we kidding? she's where fashion should be headed and is heading.
the alien-esque emaciated 14 year olds are a dime a dozen. the real women are steppin' out. it's apparent that although nothing is going to completely change, it's on it's way to changing a bit. it's even seen in a lot of designs, such as recent prada, gucci, and louis vuitton. hunched over, boney and weak looking models will come and go. they're doing their thing but it's not what women want to see. women (not to mention men) want to see other real women. and while crystal renn certainly isn't plus size anymore, everything about her (especially in these pictures) represents something I and many others want to see more in fashion. it's almost reminiscent of the early 90's era of 'the supermodel' with striking characters like cindy crawford, linda evangelista and christy turlington. the styling & hair in this shoot? come on.

we all know and love her mom carine, but julia restoin roitfeld is just as great. i (obviously) love her use of tons of black mixed with more feminine pieces. like her mom, she's the quintessential cool & smart french girl that looks like she doesn't really give a fuck what you think.

there's something about charlotte dellal that i really love. she pulls off this almost rockabilly old glamourous look, perfecting the use of leopard print (without going into cat lady or teresa giudice territory) with the greatest lip color each and every time. I wish I could figure out a lipstick color that doesn't make me look 1. dead, 2. like i just ate an ice pop or 3. crazy.
ps: yesterday was an exciting fashion day. i got to meet one of my idols in the industry (i'd name names but i'm afraid they might find this and think i'm too much of a fangirl), i saw crystal renn on the street, met another great fashion person that i literally wanted to be friends with and I discovered a great new area of brooklyn I had never been to. other exciting things have been happening too. let's say i've got some decisions to make. putting myself out there has been stressful but it's been paying off. looks like i'll be spending my summer in nyc.
