February 2010 Vogue

15 01 2010

This February’s issue of Vogue magazine will feature none other than actress Jessica Biel. In the interesting feature article entitled “The Real Biel” I was enlightened by the Vogue journalist’s depiction of Biel. It is a montage of a two-day long interview sprinkled with light humor. Pretty thought-provoking if I do say so myself.

The actress also did a photo shoot mostly shot on sight in Malibu, California with fashion photographer Mario Testino. Below are some of the featured photos from the photo shoot.

The photo above definitely depicts the classic American beauty. Here Jessica wears a Ralph Lauren Collection striped cotton shirt, RRL Ralph Lauren Douglas vest, and a Slane & Slane single-braid necklace.

This photo was titles “Home on the Range”. Pretty much speaks for itself. Here Biel is in a RRL Ralph Lauren indigo-striped cotton jacket, Ralph Lauren Collection denim overalls with a Belmont blue-striped cotton shirt, and Fiorentini + Baker shoes. The photo was shot on location at Hope Ranch Animal Rescue in Malibu.

Epitome of elegance. In this photo titled “Strike a Pose”, Jessica Biel does just that in a Adrienne Landau marabou jacket, Oscar de la Renta beaded silk chiffon gown and silver rope belt; accessorized with Van Cleef & Arpels diamond earrings and bracelet. The photo was shot on location at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa in Malibu.

Jessica Biel just GLOWS in this Haider Ackermann peacock-blue stretch silk top paired with Martin Katz Beverly Hills diamond drop earrings. Another elegant shot.

I’m Back Like I Forgot My iPhone

SO SO SO TRULY SORRY ABOUT THE HIATUS!!!!

I AM ONLY HUMAN… been working my ass off and I haven’t been able to focus any attention on my blog. However, I am BACKKK ! Hope you all have missed me :-).

I hope everyone is enjoying 2010 so far! Wishing everyone nothing but bliss this coming year. My goal throughout this year is to be able to keep up a positive/productive attitude. Every New Year I’m sure many of you make resolutions to make changes but fall off by mid January. Happens to me every year… Not this time! I am really focused on making this positive change.

The best approach would start with letting go of all negative things ((genuinely)). To start it off I’ve put all the negativity that came with 2009 behind me. Holding grudges only weakens the soul… real shit. It is really hard to forgive & forget but if you can genuinely manage the “forgiveness” part I guarantee you will feel like a load has been lifted off your shoulders. By forgiveness I merely mean sincerely LETTING GO of the things that have any negative value. We can’t just forget all the bad things that happen as much as I wish we could but trust me, it is such a RELIEF to not carry any hate/anger into this year.

The next step is not allowing in any current negativity. This has to be the hardest part… but I am trying! Last but not least I think what will really makes this process effective is bringing in as much positivity as you can. This would be basically anything that could better your self. Whether it be enjoying yourself in the social aspect, studying and focusing on doing well in school, getting a spiritual connection with God, etc… anything that betters you! With that being said I hope everyone decides to join my movement in making positive and progressive personal changes that will actually last!

In the words of Jay-Z:

“Survive the droughts, I wish you well.

How sick am I? I wish you health!

I wish you wheels, I wish you wealth!

I wish you insight so you could see for yourself!”

NOW BACK TO FASHIONNNN 🙂





Let’s Get Personal

MODEL: ME!!!!

PHOTOGRAPHED BY: JJ Miller | HAIR BY: Yojanse Jimenez

So over the past year my therapist (yes, I see a therapist… no, I’m not crazy LOL) mentioned that it would be beneficial to start a blog or journal to express my thoughts, interests, etc. After taking her thoughts into consideration, I felt that it would be therapeutic to get my thoughts down on paper or on screen in my case. After months of dragging my feet at the end of September I finally made it a point to start my very own web log site… and HERE I AM! For those of you who have been following my blog it is greatly appreciated and the support shows in my blog statistics so THANK YOU :-).

Although my initial intentions for the blog were to discuss personal topics and feelings it took a different turn. Actually being seriously passionate about fashion unlike many self-proclaimed “fashionistas”, fashion became the focus. Everyone loves clothes and dressing up, looking nice, but fashion is more than clothes, its more than what captures the eye (I could go on forever but I’ll save this topic for another time). Since fashion is so important to me most of my posts have been associated with fashion.

This post is an introduction to a new side of my blog that I am launching. It will be more personal. I’ll be posting blogs about things myself and others around me go through, whether it be at school, work, in relationships or family. I hope to get more comments and feedback on these posts so I can survey your observations and feelings about what I think.

Of course I will continue to write my informative entertainment and fashion entries… but there will be so much MORE!

On that note : stay tuned for the side of “h0llywo0d” beyond the hills ;-).
