What's The Wevther?

As if my prayers were answered by the Gods, a website has emerged that gives you your current local weather AND gives suggestions on what you should wear based off the temp/conditions of the day! W E Δ T H E R can help you when you don't feel like using your energy to crack those blinds and see what is most fitting in your closet. Clothing can be separated by male or female and includes accessories and shoes! Even better click the photo of what you like and you're sent directly to the product on its corresponding site!! Shopping made easy, who can complain?! Unfortunately for my buddies across the pond W E Δ T H E R is only available to track US weather but some of the pieces featured are from UK brands, so shop on mates :)

Free (style) November

The cold weather has finally come! And may I say it is my favorite season with all the fashion possibilities from layering, to shorts with tights, boots, bomber jackets, ear muffs, mittens, I could go on for DAYS. One of my favorite places to look for style inspiration (and snag a few pieces!) has to be Free People. Their November collection is a combination of flow-y, shimmery, festival ready, patterned must-haves that are equipped to keep you warm and cozy this fall/winter. Check out a few of my favorite looks below....

Bonjour France

School's back in session!! To go along with my goal of moving to France after graduation, I decided why not take French? I started classes last Tuesday and already I am in love with learning this beautiful language. My professor shared a video with us last class that has non native french speakers and a few celebs giving their thoughts on France and its people, etc. I was delighted to see Marc Jacobs, Roberto Cavalli, and Kanye West among the people sharing their opinions.. even when I least expect it fashion finds another way to saturate my mind!

Brittani Washington Album Debut

I had a BLAST at the Space for Music album release event, Brittani did an absolutely amazing job and looked breathtaking! I had the luxury of getting a copy of the album and like I said before this girl's got lungs!!! It's so refreshing to hear some real talent these days and to see stage presence to go along with it. I am delighted to have been able to attend and can't wait for the day I can say " Hey I got to see her live!"  If you weren't there, you REALLy missed out.

Lanvin Fall 2012

Check out the newest ad campaign for Lanvin.. my personal favorite quote is Jacquie "Tajah" Murdock — the eldest among the models — saying, "When I was 18 I wanted to go to Paris, so you could turn it around and put the eight in front and the one behind, and have 81 instead of 18." Elbaz, laughing in the background, responds, "Paris is coming to you."

Lana Del Rey for H&M

As if I didn't already dig H&M ad campaigns they spice things up (literally Lana is sooo sultry) with Lana Del Rey for their newest winter collection.

The ad was shot by famed fashion photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. In it she pouts perfectly and models sweaters, jeans, and knits.

“The mood is very L.A. noir,” Donald Schneider, H&M’s creative director, told Women’s Wear Daily.

The photographs also play up Del Rey’s other well-known feature -- her lips. [via NY Daily News]
