Romeo climbs into the garden of his beloved and tells Juliet ‘With love’s light wings did I o’erperch these walls, for stony limits cannot hold love out.’

Most females (and men) out there are in awe of the beauty of the Victoria’s Secret angels, as well as the creativity shown in each of their annual fashion shows.

Taking some fashion inspiration from them, along with the genius known as Sophia Webster, angel wings are a beautiful complement to the season’s ethereal mood.  From earrings to vests to heels, and from angel to butterfly to dragonfly wings, these romantic details add a subtle feminine touch to any outfit.

Hair How-To: The Low Messy Bun

Messy buns, the simple go-to hairstyle of celebrities, businesswomen, and the rest of the female population alike, look effortlessly chic and carefree.  Meet the low messy bun, a quick variation of the classic mess, yet with a new element of the same bohemian vibe.

Camilla Pihl

Use a texturizing spray (I highly recommend the cult classic from Oribe) to create beautiful beach waves.  Then, gather all your hair from behind, fold in half, and use a hair band to secure the bun.  Voila!

Street Style: 7 Quintessential Fashion Accessories

The most popular staples in fashion right now:

celine phantom & valentino rockstuds

1. The Bag:

The Celine Phantom Bag

celine

The days of the street style starlet clutching her Chanel 2.55 quilted bag will never be gone; however, the oversized (and mini!) Celine Phantom bag somehow turns any regular outfit into a fashionable masterpiece.

2. The Heels:

Valentino Rockstud Heels

valentino rockstud heels

From diamond-encrusted to black leopard print calf-hair, Valentino Rockstud heels are a street style starlet’s best friend.  The cage gives off major sex appeal, while the pointy toe elongates legs, all while looking amazingly chic, which makes for a heel that men and women both adore.

3.The Cashmere Scarf:

Burberry Scarf

burberry

Cozy and chic, this scarf is classic.  It looks perfect paired with a Burberry trench, and perfectly edgy when combined with a leather jacket.

4. The Belt:

Hermes ‘H’ Buckle Belt

Originally we were coveting the Birkin, but now there’s an obscenely long wait list for the Hermes “H” belt.

5. The Silk Scarf:

Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf

This classic skull scarf is the epitome of Alexander McQueen chic.

6. The Watch:

Bulgari Serpenti Watch

This modern reinterpretation of Elizabeth Taylor’s vintage Bulgari watch quickly became the new arm party.

7. The Random Coveted Accessory with Eyes & Fur:

Fendi Buggies

These little grumpy looking furry buggies quickly sell out every season since they emerged on the street style scene, and are only getting more and more coveted.

Street Style: The Man Bag

A recent trend I’ve noticed is the Man Bag.   Sure, men have carried around briefcases and backpacks for centuries, but the man bag seems to be replacing both.  The reason for this is because bags can carry more than what you can fit in your pockets, a brief case is a bit too formal, and backpacks are rather inconvenient- having to unstrap and stop to get something out is anything but easy.  The Man Bag is especially helpful for New York City, where you learn to expect the unexpected.  Check out these photos of some awesome Man Purses, er, Bags I snapped recently while wandering around West Village in Manhattan.
