MizzJ said...

Those candy stripe shoes are so saucy! The new header is pretty fab too.

Keith said...

Great pictures. I loved them all. I hope you had a wonderful holiday. Cheers!

la petite fashionista said...

ah yes, this is making me excited for my 4th of july outfit! (although i'll be in paris over the 4th so it won't be quite the same)!

I think it's interesting that Chanel does so much with the stars & stripes yet is a French label.

Fifi Flowers said...

I'm all for the stripes as long as they run the slimming direction!
Hope you enjoyed the long weekend!

Romina said...

Your blog is vibrant. I shall bookmark it. How did you get started??

Stars and stripes are both so much fun to wear. I particularly like the Ralph Lauren stripes dress.

KIRAFASHION said...

I love it too! We feel like stars!

Anika said...

Hey CC,
Love the new header :)
Also, very taken by stripes and stars (although potentially not together but I'm happy to be disproved about that one).

In particular, that Bird Gerhl dress caught my eye. Me likey. Alot!!

Hope you're having a fantastic week, m'dear :)

stylewithbenefits said...

First off, LOVED your interview at Under the Sheets. I felt myself nodding throughout in agreement. I share your love for skinny jeans and think you're right on about east coast vs. west coast style. :) I'm loving the first pic here.. and now want a body con red and white stripe mini! I kept staring at that pic because she's so well styled!

xo, Becs
