Gemma Arterton

This girl. So hot. Minus the cig, I'm down with her 'just-rolled-out-of-bed', mid-day stroll styling.  She is actress Gemma Arterton, best known for her roles in Quantum of Solace and Prince of Persia. Love her look.  In this instance, her clothes are rather simple and don't measure up to the sex appeal she exudes.  It's this kind of visual irony that draws a following (i.e. men!). Aren't I a good student?

Winking Wisecracker Jar

I like this snow owl cookie jar from Anthropologie. I'm not much of a cookie person, but I do have fond childhood memories of my grandmother's cookie jar. As a kid, after school meant Saved by the Bell reruns and snacking on my grandmother's freshly baked peanut butter cookies while I waited for my parents to finish work.  Sugar and Zack Morris was and still is a great way to pass the time. This cookie jar would look cute perched atop my fridge.  Grandma would have agreed.

DVF Pre-Fall 2011

These looks from Diane von Furstenberg's pre-fall 2011 collection make me feel all sorts of good crazy.  So classic, so chic.  I'd want to be dressed exactly like this if I were a big shot movie star photographed walking through LAX.  I know, pathetic.  I blame those darn-right addictive "Stars' Airport Style" photos. (Thank you People.com!)  The mustard and teal pairing is gorgeous. Bravo DVF!
