a move

followers and friends! Fashion-ooosies ceases to exist. but I've started a different blog called bouche de becker. it's full of food, fashion, and other good things. just with better photos. see you there!



whip yo hair


so i cut my hair! what do you think? it's pretty drastic and a little bit crazy, but so far I'm pleased as a peach. it really just adds that extra oomph to my style.

because of this sweaty, sticky heat i have put my jackets and pants in a 'no touching' zone, meaning i will not wear them, go near them, glance in their general direction . . . etc. it's too damn hot! now is the time for short hair and sundresses  and  fun fun fun. . . 

vintage scarf, h&m dress, michael kors sandals, tiffany necklace (gifted)

bizarrely, i did not buy a single item i'm wearing today, and most of it came from my mom (the shoes and scarf were hers in the '90's and the dress was a gift i received.) now that dress, although cotton and relatively simple/shapeless, i just adore. the pink is so bright and girly! how can you not smile at those awesome dots? i did consider belting it (an hourglass figure's go-to), but as i recently read in a vogue article, the key to french style is to have enormous restraint. so this is me "restraining." C'est tres chic, non?


spanish rose


i adored my surprise european-themed date downtown! we dined on some wonderful italian food from vespaio, followed by woody allen's latest lovely film 'midnight in paris' and all the while i looked sort of like a spanish flamenco dancer. i may be euro-confused?

so it's about time for a new 'do, and i've been eyeing with envy this cute little bumble and bumble gem. i love my curls (and limited hair fuss) but the bangs and the shortness of the cut i'm afraid might overwhelm my super round face . . . what do you think? can i pull it off?




this summer i am all about sunshine and color, but of course with a little punch. this body-hugging white dress perfectly captures that feeling with its vibrant flashes of magenta and green across the front. it's like a modern painting almost; chic space-age cuteness.

woman about town


 a token night off from my current, incredible job led to a quiet dinner with the bf. korean food and gelato, mmmmmmm.

zara bag, elie tahari coat, vintage nude slip, pour la victoire heels

i love the slight pinkishness of those nude sling backs. so girly and sexy at the same time, they go with everything in my closet. it's like gaga says, you just can't go wrong with glossy, tight leather.
