Style Icon: Kerry Washington.

Sorry againnn for the lack of updating. Ugh, where does the time go? It's already June, and I still have yet to work, and my funds are running considerably low. Being a 21st century kind of gal, I refuse to let J pay for all our dates, and while this does make me feel considerably independent, it is also burning a hole in my bank account (I had to have my mother transfer funds the other day because I dropped under $100 in my bank account - I have NEVER done that before!). Don't get me wrong - it is very nice when J pays for an expensive dinner, but I don't know, I just feel bad having him do it allll the time.

Anywayyy, I try to spend some time before bed going through my stacks of magazines, that I haven't found the time to enjoy out in the sun lately because of the terrible weather the past few days that just seems endless. My magazine collection up in my room was absolutely piling up - to the extent that not even the three designated baskets I have in my room for magazines were overflowing onto the floor - something my mother was not too pleased about. I don't know why I was even hoarding them, but anyway, as I flipped through them before sticking them in the recycling bin in the kitchen, I came across quite a few pictures of Kerry Washington, and was seriously blown away by how gorgeous she is, and how impeccably dressed she always seems to be.

Honestly, I couldn't even recognize her from her character in Save the Last Dance. I think she is such a beautiful, intelligent, and tres, tres fashionable woman (and when I discovered she was a fellow Obama supporter, hello, love her even more now!). She was in Ray, where she portrayed the wife of Ray Charles, and did a beautiful job in it (and was nominated for a SAG award for her portrayal).

Her style appears to be pretty classic, but with fun twists. I honestly can't imagine her being on any worst dressed lists, everrrr.

I know this is a little different, but I still actually like it on her a lot. Could I pull it off though? Never.

I'll catch up on all your blogs hopefully by Sunday - I'm going to a wedding with J tomorrow (I promise lots of pictures - I got the most adorable dress!). Enjoy your weekends, I adore and miss you all :)

Currently listening to/watching: Gossip Girl - I DVRed the finale, and finallyyyy caught up on all the episodes. Seriously, I already can't WAIT for next season, and lovedddd the finale. I know I'm very far behind, but what did all your other Gossip Girl fans think?

Australia's non-cable channels haven't got gossip girl... :/
So right now I've only seen season 1, and I'm dying for season 2 to come out so I can buy it and catch up on everything... grrrr.
I'm a fan of the yellow dress with the black and white flowers on the bottom. VV nice. :)

Kerry Washington is absolutely stunning. Thank you so much for reminding me about this particular actress and her flawless sense of style.

Although I don't know much about women and their fashion in general, I can recognize that this woman can dress with style and grace. I personally enjoy when women wear clothes that look neat, classy and sleek, and you my darling, I feel, dress this way. You can pull off all of these styles you wickedly fierce wonder. I looooove your body. You are just the right size (although all sizes are beautiful) and your legs are hot. Man... if I were straight...

Hope you're enjoying your weekend and I'm glad the sun finally came out for a peek. Soak it up my darling...

Besitos para siempre

Hey Allison. Thanks for the feedback on my blog. It was great hearing from you. It was also wonderful to see a new post from you. I had missed seeing any new blog posts from you.

I'm sorry to hear that your money is running so low. That's a shame. I know that feeling. Good luck with that. I hope it works out.

I love the photos of Kerry. She's incredibly beautiful and stylish. It was nice to see all of those. Take care. I hope you've enjoyed your weekend.

I wish my parents could transfer some money into my account lol, I've been hovering around the £0 mark for months now! Kerry Washington is SO amazing, and I didn't even realise she was in Save The Last Dance...I'm going to have to watch it again just to see her lol. I like the fact that she takes those little risks, but still looks stunning :)

The structure of that first outfit is so fantastic, and I love the colour! And wow, the third dress is so pretty :) The fifth, silvery grey one is stunning. Oooh and love her in the long yellow dress! And yay for Common, he is so awesome.

Hope you've had a beautiful weekend dear :)

I think that it should be equal pay for dates. My closet is complied of probably every issue from Spin, Wired, The New Yorker, Boho, and Nylon. Save the Last Dance is definitely one of my favorite classic films.


Charmaine said...

My magazines piled up too. Finally I decided to cut out the images I liked best and create this elaborate collage on my walls with them and recycle the remains of the mags.
