After I read this on Perez Hilton yesterday, I dusted off my Clueless DVD to revisit some of the trends that made the movie so special. I’m still undecided on whether a remake would be a good idea, but it was fun to see how one of my favorite parts of the movie has become a reality.
Remember Cher’s virtual closet that picked out her daily outfits? Closet is a new app available for the iPhone and iPod Touch that helps categorize your clothing so that getting dressed in the morning is a snap. Whether you use it to separate your wardrobe into sections (I’m thinking bubble skirts, tulip skirts, pencil skirts…you get the idea) or tag pieces as favorites, it’s a great way to save time and keep tabs on what’s in your closet. Now if only I could get my hands on a yellow plaid skirt suit, I’d be set.

In my very first blog post, I mentioned how spring has always been my favorite time of year. While that’s true to an extent, I’m rather fickle when it comes to deciding, so I’ve started a new section dedicated to all of my favorite aspects of each season. Since spring is in full force here in L.A., I thought I’d kick things off by sharing my passion for warm nights and cool, easy dinners.
This Citrus Sangria took mere minutes, but added a refreshing complement to our light meal.

What’s your go-to dinner when it’s still 90° at 7:30?

During warmer months, all of my pumps/ballet flats/boots are shoved to the back of my closet to make room for my collection of sky-high wedges. Not only do they add a few necessary inches, but they’re remarkably comfortable. I’ve probably tried on Cynthia Vincent’s Luella wedges a half dozen times, but simply cannot spend the $400 amount that has not budged since I first spotted them (believe me, I check that often). That’s why, when I saw Aldo’s Brozek, I was ecstatic. I’ve yet to see them in person, but I’m fairly convinced that they’re just the perfect alternative for which I’ve been waiting.
EDIT: Thanks to Kristy for alerting me that the Cynthia Vincent wedges are now $218 on BlueFly so if you wear a size 9 or 9.5 and love the shoes, you’re in luck!

When I was little, my grandparents bought me a Mexican sundress with pink frills and yellow flowers that I worshiped. I’ve long since grown out of it, but when I spotted this embroidered blouse at the flea market, I swooped it up right away. It’s absurdly baggy, but when tucked into some wide-legged trousers, it adds a festive touch to a formal look.
