>> Model and girlfriend of Jamie Hince from The Kills, Valentine Fillol-Cordier made UK Harper's Bazaar's annual best-dressed list. Her outfit really caught my eye -- the coat with the red collar and big buttons, the black tights, the red shoes, the casual makeup and hair. Excited to have found her, I looked around for more pictures -- surely this couldn't be her only great outfit if she made a best-dressed list. But no such luck -- the only pictures I could find of her were from photo editorials -- no candids, no nothing. Looks like Valentine likes to stay out of the spotlight. But keep your eye out for her -- and I will as well. She looks like she has potential.

>> I've had the April 2006 i-D in my possession for a while now, but I haven't reported anything on it yet because I've been letting this editorial, "In Suburbia," roll around my head for a bit. The styling by Heidi Bivens caught my eye because it can actually be translated very easily into everyday wear.
From these two pictures, I took away four things:
1) Cardigans, cardigans, cardigans. I've been feeling this way for a while, but this just cements it -- cardigans are back in a big way. At least in my wardrobe they are.
2) I need a matador-inspired jacket.
3) Wearing a rosary as a necklace. I've been looking for a good rosary to wear since last summer, but haven't found anything I was happy with. Seeing one in this picture reminded me that I need to keep looking.
4) I need me a nice tiered dress -- ever since the Marc Jacobs spring 2006 show I've been on the hunt. But I am in absolute love with that green lacy tiered dress by Julien MacDonald.
Moral of this story? Ebay, here I come!
