Ahh Dior. I hold a special place for Dior, I really do. The first designer bag I ever bought was a pink saddlebag with silver coins dangling from the hem...so gaudy and ostentatious yet somehow so perfect. I still have it, though I've put it through the ringer and actually really ruined the hardware. After purchasing, I was informed by my mother that my favorite outfit as a baby was a light purple Dior striped collared shirt....how chic?!
Even though I've seen them all, I watch them anyway because I really think they are one of the healthiest and happiest relationships I've seen in a while... and truth be told, I totally bought her "Think Like a Guy" book while perusing the self-help section of a Barnes & Noble one rainy Sunday. Ok that sounded pathetic. But really, it was a fun poolside read, and I read excerpts to Novio who probably thought it was completely ridiculous. Either way, there's no harm in watching (or reading) fluff once in a while!

On a lighter note, I embark on my own travels FRIDAY. Home, sweet home! I am actually counting down the days, and I haven't felt like that about a trip home in a while. Friends and family are just what I need I think.

Ahh Norway. Love. Where I was born, so I guess I'm partial.
This year, V Magazine's model contest winner is the 15 year-old Nordic beauty Lea Groesland. In standard Norwegian style, (Scandinavian altogether really), Lea has pale blonde hair, bright blue eyes, and milky white skin.
Making me uber-jealous: the Alexander Wang wardrobe she gets to prance around in for the spread.........so unfair!
I LOOOOVE this Lanvin dress from the Spring/Summer 2010 runway show. Also, what is so great in the styling is the HAIR! I love the hair, all big and thick and plopped down square on top of the model's heads. How fun!
Of course there are other great looks from the show, but mostly on brunettes, plus I love the shade of this emeradly-green contrasting with bright white blonde hair. And her skinny little legs! Ah, jealousy.
They put on a great show, of course, but my friend Kate and I had just as much fun after the show playing dress up....meoooow
