»· Style Icon: Miroslava Duma ·«

October 12, 2011

During New York Fashion Week I saw a girl wearing this Derek Lam cape jacket and ferociously stalked street style blogs until I found out who she was/where I could get that amazing jacket. Her name is Miroslava Duma and her style is the pinpoint of what I deem as perfection. Sometimes boho, sometimes minimal and chic, sometimes straight up glamorous, Miroslava never falls into one style category. Amen!

She used to be an editor at Harpers Bazaar Russia and now does freelance work for a number of editorials but honestly, this girl should add stylist to her resume. She’s not afraid to combine Zara with Christopher Kane (two of my favorites) and I love how she knows hot to dress for her body. I seriously have bookmarked at least 50 photos of her outfits, but this collage is a mash-up of some of my favorites.

Happy 2nd Birthday to Runway Hippie!!

What an amazing year it’s been! And I have all of you to thank for it! This past year has truly been inspirational for me - never in a million years did I think anyone would care about what I put up on my blog and to be honest, I’m still amazed by it. Thank you for all of your incredible support and loyalty, without you I’d still be working at a miserable job, feeling uninspired and depressed.

So many wonderful things have happened this year and I can only hope that they’ll keep on comin’!

Now, before I go out and celebrate, I thought I’d post a few highlights from this past year and then I command all of you to go out and eat some cake and enjoy the weekend!

The actual kickoff date to summer is practically here and I couldn’t be more excited. Along with a fair amount of rooftop parties, outdoor barbecues and waterfront concerts, I will be spending most of July along the shore just like last summer. I can already hear the strumming grasshoppers, taste the delicious barbecue and smell those quintessential summer smells like bug spray and suntan lotion, both of which I use heavily. PROTECT YOURSELF!

I love summertime in New York because everyone emerges from their apartments ready to bask in the “outdoors,” otherwise known as Central Park, apartment rooftops and sidewalk friendly restaurants. However, I’m not sure I’d love it as much if I didn’t know I could escape the humidity for the month of July because let’s face it, that humidity is m-e-a-n, MEAN. But, in the spirit of positivity and summer adventures I bring you a photographic journal of what I’m most excited about in these coming months:

Whirling Dervish

May 9, 2011

I’m totally digging this new mid-calf length skirt trend. Don’t get me wrong, I still love me some minis, but it’s nice to be able to bend over in a skirt without the worry of flashing a little cheeky cheek. I tried this skirt on at Madewell last week but decided to think about it for a few days before buying it. But after an entire day of daydreaming about whirling and twirling in it, I scurried back over to Madewell a mere 24 hours later and wham bam thank you ma’am, it’s now mine forever and ever! I can already think of several different ways to wear this skirt, both day and night, and thus have zero regrets about my purchase. In fact, I think I’ll go put it on with a white t-shirt and some strappy sandals RIGHT THIS MINUTE! Aurevoir!

30 Pictures

I think one of the funnest things about reading blogs is the little glimpses into other peoples lives. A few weeks ago one of my favorite blogs, For Me, For You posted a series of 30 photos of people, places, and things that hold specific meaning in her life and it got me thinking about what 30 photos I would post. It definitely took longer than I thought it would but I enjoyed every minute of digging through my photo archives finding and appreciating things in my life that I don’t spend nearly enough time cherishing. Here’s my whack at it, and I definitely recommend doing the same!
