I’ve been seeing a lot of similarities between the Fall 2012 Isabel Marant ready-to-wear collection and what’s in Zara right now … coincidence – I think not. This modern frontier theme is just what we need this coming season and the collection couldn’t be more fitting for Marant’s second U.S. store opening on Melrose this September!!

It has always been a dream of mine to visit Salvation Mountain, so when the opportunity arose, I leapt. This love inspired mount is not only a visual masterpiece it’s a proclamation, in epic proportion, to the greatest love story known to man. The late Leonard Knight devoted his life to creating this work that professes his simple yet powerful message: “God Is Love.”

Watch “A Story of Love” here.

I surely don’t hate Juicy Couture’s Fall 2012 campaign with model, Karlie Kloss. Kloss takes a kick-ass approach to reclaiming California cool all to the beat of LL Cool J’s, “Going Back to Cali.”

Get’em girl!

Leather Edit

I am so craving leather pieces right now … can’t you tell? Need leather, want leather EVERYTHING!! Anyway, these are my top favs on my radar currently.
