GUINEA PIG OF LOVE: A LOOK AT JULIA ALLISON’S PERSONAL MEMENTOS
JULY 31, 2012
BY JULIA ALLISON
This was my attempt at casual chic, standing on the balcony of my new home in Marina del Rey (the beach town south of Venice & west of LA). I don’t know if I succeeded, but at least I tried?

LOVE/HATE FASHION WEEK: MY TAKE ON REBECCA TAYLOR’S FALL/WINTER 2012 COLLECTION

This wedding – with the bride in a jaw-dropping purple gown – is just … WOW WOW WOW.

Got this email from my friends at Nanette Lepore PR today. LOVE THIS! Especially the feminine curves and peplum detail.
WANT WANT WANT!!!!!!
