Completely Gratuitous Outfit / Jeans and a Blazer for Work

What I’m Wearing
J Brand Skinny jeans in indigo
Pink Blouse: Forever 21 …seen here
Brown herringbone blazer: Vintage Ralph Lauren …seen here with same jeans
Pearls: two long strands, tied. Vintage, grandma’s
Peep Toe Pumps: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Sunglasses: Tom Ford
Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Every time I watch The Hills I think the following . . .
1. Heidi looks NOTHING like she used to and Spencer is the biggest douche on the planet.
2. Why doesn’t Lauren do something about her mustache? I mean, seriously, I don’t like waxing either {so I usually tweeze} but I’M NOT ON TELEVISION!!! Wax it girl.
3. Brody is getting hotter
4. I don’t hate LO as much
5. Why do they wear SO MUCH MAKEUP? …it makes their faces look splotchy and dirty.

So last night I was complaining to my husband about my skin breaking out and he says to me “You look better without all that makeup on your face” .. I said .. “But I can’t wear eye makeup and not face makeup …it doesn’t blend well, I don’t like the way it looks” …to which he replied “Well, it looks dirty” …um, what? …I look dirty like those Hills girls and I don’t even know it? …no. I think he’s wrong. lol. But I do think it’s time to wash my brushes.

    You always look so gorgeous and glamorous in your shots- and NOT AT ALL like the pancake-make-uped girls on The Hills. Love your brownish gray blazer with that pink shirt!

    ahhh a good brush cleansing is the best! and i doubt you look dirty, men just dont understand makeup. i dont feel “finished” if i havent put anything on my face

    Your are so incredibly fabulous.
    And I completely agree with everything you say about the hills – especially #1!!!
    Heidi looks nothing at all like she used and spencer… ugh, don’t get me started.

    you look far from dirty…and far from the girls on the hills. you are always fabulous! and like belle said dont get me started….about the hills/heidi

    i just recently had the same problem serious break outs and i thought it was time for proactive..but it could be from stress..the weirdness in the weather and i changed my detergent and things have started to calm down a little. and most definitely a little good brush cleaning always helps!

    you don’t look dirty lol!
    you look great 😀

    my boyfriend prefers when I don’t wear make up, but I feel nude when I don’t wear it!

    thanks for your nice comment on my post.

    I don’t think you wear too much makeup. Maybe you didn’t blend well enough along your jawline or something that day….?

    And why do you watch The Hills? Lol. I can’t stand that show. So incredibly fake.

  • lily.splendor

    April 30, 2009 |

    Hilarious. I’m on the same wave as you when it comes to The Hills except I always liked Lo. I guess there was a period where she was not so nice? I must’ve missed those episodes.

    Your Hills thoughts had be crackin up! But I agree. Heidi looks so over done all the time, I miss her natural beauty.

  • Couture Carrie

    Love this look, especially the pumps… You must have the most amazing closetful of shoes! The hair looks fab as ever (do you mind if I ask you how many times/wk. do you wash it?).


  • Jasmine

    April 30, 2009 |

    ugh. i totally agree. spencer is SUCH a douchebag. i can’t stand that little skeezy prat.

  • Julia

    April 30, 2009 |

    Okay, that second shot is front cover-worthy 🙂

  • Nil

    April 30, 2009 |

    I don’t wear face make-up too and I’m sure you’d look divine without it too. I just love your style looking hot as always 😉

  • Hanako66

    April 30, 2009 |

    Brody is so hot right?!!!!

    You look fab…love the second shot:)

  • Megan

    April 30, 2009 |

    OK I agree with EVERYTHING you said about The Hill’s. And why oh why did Heidi marry Spencer? I think its so sad!

  • drollgirl

    April 30, 2009 |

    Your outfit is fab, and I want your hair! So pretty. Your thoughts about The Hills are right on. Not sure how great it will even be next season w/o LC.

    xo, Becs

    April 30, 2009 |

    all i wear is a tinted moisturizer and black eyeliner and kev always tells me i look better without makeup.

    so interesting.

  • Hello Lindello

    April 30, 2009 |

    I love this look. REALLY digging the blazer!

  • Brett Alexandra

    April 30, 2009 |

    Yes, Heidi looks completely different now. I don’t like it. Brody is DEFINITELY getting hotter! I need to keep up with it more. That is sad that it’s the last season.

  • Chrystina

    1. You are so completely amazing, your style is incredible, and you are always always just flawlessly gorgeous. You kill me all the time – I LOVE it haha. <3

    2. You are completely right about the Hills, every single one, but number 1 on that list is so so so so right haha. Ugh, I wont get started!

    3. Guys, no matter how long they see it, cant get used to makeup I’ve noticed. They dont “understand” what its really for. While I highly doubt you look dirty , I pretty sure your hubby loves you right when you wake up in the morning, messy hair and no make-up.. 100% you, no cosmetics help, and thats because you are naturally absolutely breathtaking. And thick makeup is probably overwhelming for a guy…. they just dont understand what WE think it does for US. And that is ok. Because you know you look good, and he knows you look good 😉 Makeup or no makeuo!! <33

    You are fabulous. Simple as that.

  • Chessa!

    April 30, 2009 |

    LOL-I don’t watch the Hills but I agree with all of the things on your list I might as well know about everything from all the freaking tabloids and blogs I read. yes, wax that freaking “pedro” like my hubby lovingly refers to mine…he says it’s ok for him to say it even tho I find it completely offensive bc I’m Cuban and Argentinian. I prefer to call it my “burt reynolds”…as for “dirty face” – first of all, that’s hilarious…sorry! it is! But I get it too…I just cleaned my brushes bc I suffered from dirty face and randomly started breaking out too. It’s better now.

    I love your outfit! Especially the pearls and that top, they go perfectly together

    Your hills bit cracked me up!! Every time i watch it i think

    1. Heidi looks NOTHING like she used to and Spencer is the biggest douche on the planet.
    2. Why doesn’t Lauren do something about her mustache? I mean, seriously, I don’t like waxing either {so I usually tweeze} but I’M NOT ON TELEVISION!!! Wax it girl.
    3. Brody is getting hotter
    4. I don’t hate LO as much
    5. Why do they wear SO MUCH MAKEUP? …it makes their faces look splotchy and dirty

    great minds think alike :]especially number 2, it drives me INSANE

    lovely blog as usual xx

    April 30, 2009 |

    could spencer be any more of an asshat? i don’t think it’s possible. i need to watch the hills ASAP to see the lauren ‘stache. i can’t believe i’ve never noticed it! your shoes are great 🙂

  • Fabi

    April 30, 2009 |

    I need that RL blazer in my life! It is like the perfect piece for any closet, so jealous 🙂

    that is hilarious..I randomly watched one episode the other night and did a double take at LC’s stache. I asked my husband and he said it probably was a dirt smudge. Men.

  • TeachingInHeels

    I completely agree about The Hills!!! What is with Speidi looking so crazy different and why can’t anyone tell Lauren about the mustache?!

    Cute outfit too 🙂

  • Tiffany

    May 1, 2009 |

    so funny about Lauren’s moustache! I’m always yelling at the TV when I watch the Hills telling her to invest in some wax strips.

    I heard that they have makeup artists do their makeup before their “scenes” so you would think the makeup artist would say something about the ‘stache!

  • Joelyne

    May 1, 2009 |

    you look absolutely gorgeous!

    I’ve been charting the evolution of L.C.’s ‘stache for awhile now. It fascinates me. I’m pretty sure she didn’t used to have it, which means either a.) it just recently sprouted, or b.) she’s fallen off the waxing wagon. I wonder which one it is…

    Sometimes I think about The Hills too much.

    Your skinny jeans are fab! Do you have any recommendations for skinnies for a girl (me!) who has slim legs, small waist but not so slim hips.. all the skinny jeans I try make me look like an inverted triangle!!

    Heidi used to look lovely. She now looks like a living barbie doll!! So preened and primped!

    my outfit today is inspired by yours…except my feet are DIEING! i generally dont wear really high heels to work since i have to walk from the train, today i tried it…at least i feel hot!

    now off to peruse ur outfits for some inspiration for an event i have tonight 🙂

  • isabelle

    love your top and necklace!

  • Kelly

    Love the pearls. Very cool. I am so with you on the hills… My friend and I talk about Lauren’s stash all the time. I think it is from the sun?? Maybe she needs to stop tanning.

  • Sol

    May 1, 2009 |

    hahahah those are the exact same things i think when i’m watching The Hills too.
    i think that once you start wearing make-up, it kind of snowballs into an addiction of wearing more and more. i’m the complete opposite, and don’t wear any make up, and that’s not good either. but you know what they say, less is more, and this applies to make up too imo.
    you’re really gorgeous, so i don’t think you’d need much make up to look good 😉

  • Anna

    May 2, 2009 |

    I LOVE this outfit! 🙂

  • Krista

    Im just glad Lauren is finally washing her hair before she is on camera now. One step at a time, I guess.

    We canceled cable because my fiancé knew the awful people on the Hills entranced me with morbid fascination, but they also made me very, very cross. They are all bad people and they shouldn’t be glorified or famous. LC has no designing talent, LO is an instigating whiny bitch with big doll eyes, and Heidi and Spencer are no-talent dicks who ride everyone’s coattails and credit their talent… UGH.

    OK, I’m getting angry now. Why can’t TV glorify people who actually do good and contribute to society instead of people who do nothing and make intelligent people angry because they (celebrities) are so fucking useless?

    And yes, I agree, they look dirty.
