Fallen Angel...

 Aaliyah | 2000 MTV VMA | Roberta Cavalli gown

August 25, 2001, one of my fave artists Aaliyah passed away. I always admired her style, humble nature, and envied that hair!! She carried herself with class & almost never would you hear a negative word uttered about her. Aaliyah was a triple threat (singer, actress, dancer) on the rise to greatness! Forever shall her spirit live on....Baby Girl you are One in a Million!!!

My fave song:

J.A. Slays....


 Jessica Alba | Machete Premiere

LoL...Finally back from my bloggers block! As requested, I'll start posting some celeb style looks I love. If I was a Rich B*tch I'd be wearing Balmain and Louboutins on the reg (eff this vintage sh*t...i kid!). However, I am not (as of yet) so I'll keep scouring the net looking for replicas! Excuse me while I gag...bc Jessica Alba is killllllin IT!!!! Wurk Bish.

Currently having some sort of bloggers block (my version of writers block) LoL. I'm not going to just post anything for the hell of it...so bare with me as I get my ish together...quality over quantity here...


Things that bother me:
x. Image quality...(what I wore) I neeed a SLR BADDD! Thinking of throwing the outfit posts on the back burner until I could showcase them properly.
x. Drive by posting...I will not tolerate the "nice blog", "cute outfit", now visit my blog @ www.____.blogspot.com. I take the time to post meaningful, short but sweet comments on others pages, I'd appreciate the same respect.

On a brighter note...
Those who have been rocking with the best, knew firsthand that 2/3 of Z.Looks landed on the Most Viewed List (2weeks straight...&counting) on Ny Mags The Cut Blog. If you haven't got a chance, you can view them here & here. I'll be posting look #2 images very soon...

In the meantime...
Check out new purchases, inspirations, ranting, & updates via Twitter
I'm on Facebook more than anything (my addiction is worse than crack...), so if your looking for exclusives be sure to "Like" me  = )

Paint the town...RED!






1.Dree Hemingway | Harpers Bazaar Sept2010
2.Giorgio Armani | F/W 2010-11 Ad
3.MaryKate Olsen | Marie Claire Sept2010
4.Fashion Blogger| Raez

As you all will soon learn if you haven't already, is that I could care less for trends. I'd rather make my own/discover something new the "cult" isn't currently following religiously. Most recently, I've been in love with the color red in a structural/ flowerish-type form. OoH! How I can't help but to like all of the pieces featured above; but when it comes to the overall styling, Raez tops the cake! Her look has more character than the others...It's simple, yet not overly styled (ie MaryKate) or too plain (ie Dree,Armani). I'm still on the hunt for my own piece of "structured red" but in the meantime, I'll leave this post feeling a little "inspired" to create something one of a kind & totally Z.

I have really been into simple color palettes lately; blacks, whites, and grays to name a few! As well as garments layered over sheer pieces. When I ran into Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason F/W 2010 Collection on the net I couldn't help but to love the looks showcased. Above are 5 of my faves that I would personally wear.

Note:
Their designs draw from an artistic stance, with additive influences from nature and technology. Always prominent in their collections are men’s tailoring and ethnic textile design. What I like the most is the architecture of the garments, they're soft yet structural. In the lab, Ostwald holds down the color and print side of things while Helgason takes care of the silhouettes. Together they create *perfection* which has been featured in Vogue, Elle, and worn on fashion mavens like Rihanna and Daphne Guinness.

You can check out their full bio here as well as the entire collection. How do you feel about the pieces?

Dree Hemingway rocks it out in the latest issue of Vogue Nippon...I love the combination of bold color, shimmering skin, and her long luxurious braided hair. The insane makeup and picture perfect tresses can be credited to Eugene Souleiman. Nathaniel Goldberg shot the amazing pics. I wish I could find someone to add a few extensions and braid my hair exactly like that...Dree pulls off these extreme looks effortlessly.

Perfect your Stroke...



Known to create some of the most beautiful nails on the runway, Sophy Robson shows you how to get one meannn CHANEL mani!

Personally, I have a bad habit of biting my nails,(I suck at painting them also). To help kick that sh*t to the curb, im going to start getting my mani professionally done. I'm def not ruining $10.00 painted nails...

If you're not as bad as me, &have a lil time on your hands; Giving this video a try is well worth it! ; )

UPDATE: I've been practicing painting my own nails, & I must say i'm getting much better! Its all in the stroke babyyyy! ; )

Also, many times I don't have the perfect "match" for the item...so I'll just wait to debut when everything is seamless! ; )

I chose to highlight Christine's looks because of her outstanding minimalistic style....I love the fact that she can make dressing solely in neutrals look fashionable. Not only are her looks somewhat simple, she dresses comfortably too!! What I adore most about her is that she is a repeat offender! LoL. She manages to wear the same heels and blazers & make them work effortlessly w. other key items in her wardrobe. Hopefully today you leave a lil inspired to try one of her looks. xo
