Penelope looks amazing in Azzedine Alaia at the Independent Spirit Awards last night. I love the unexpected monochromatic brown at an awards ceremony- a unique choice.

love bj

I don't have time to keep up with all the runway shows during this fashion week, but I do check in with Fashionista. Today they have some great shots from the Betsey Johnson presentation. I just adore Betsey. I love her energy and in-your-face girliness. She makes hot pink leopard look wearable AND fun. Going in to a Betsey store is always a thrill. Here are some of my favorites from the post.

Part punk, part femme, all ready for a good time

Big, red roses + leather cuff + lace = win. I would like to see the dress minus the corset, though

Sequins are always a winner, and I am very partial to the shorts + tights combo. Makes me want to mix all kinds of colors together.

Must find a sequin-lapel jersey tux jacket!!! Definitely my favorite piece from the pics.

walk it out

Getting through this last stretch of winter weather takes a lot out of us. For me, any little psychological boost I can find is needed to hoist me up from the brink of constant grumpiness. When I am walking through the sludge and slush, and the bus is 15 minutes late again, and the sun just can't seem to peek through the clouds, a good song really helps get my mood right. As I walk the last few blocks to class, I can strut along with the music and forget about all the lame crap that winter brings.

Here is my FORGETTING WINTER walking mix:

F**k Me Pumps - Amy Winehouse
Poker Face - Lady GaGa
Could You Be Loved - Bob Marley
Piece of Me - Britney
Candy Shop - Madonna
Float On - Modest Mouse
Got Your Number - Nadia Oh
Whatcha Think About That - Pussycat Dolls
Disturbia - Rihanna
Dreamworld - Rilo Kiley
Trouble - Britney
10 Dollar - M.I.A.
Forever - Chris Brown
Golden Years - Bowie
Elevator - Flo Rida
Rich Girl - Gwen & Eve
Someone Great - LCD Soundsystem
One Week of Danger - The Virgins
Seize the Day - Newsies (really! -but you could substitute King of New York if you'd like)

best boots

These boots were my Christmas present to myself.

Just like every other Gossip Girl fan, they've been on my radar since Serena wore them in the first season. I finally found them at a good price and in black leather, and I've been wearing them an almost inappropriate amount since they landed on my doorstep. I was hesitant to buy them since they are pull-on, over-the-knee, but my sister (who bought Serena's exact pair last year) assured me they were easy to wear and so worth it. I agree and highly recommend these to anyone-- but watch out, they have no traction on the bottom. No traction + snowy ground + walking in the bus aisle when the bus starts moving = I think I may have broken my tailbone.

Someday I will remember to take pictures again! Happy Superbowl Sunday! None of the teams I like made it this year, but it is an excuse to have friends over and eat junk food!

my favorite

I'm excited that SNL is actually bringing a musical guest that I love. I have seen Jason Mraz live 3 times and it will never get old. He has the best voice I've ever heard.
