Hello, Armadillo.

Would you wear these bad boys?? Crazy cool {10 inch} Alexander McQueen.

Kelis attempted. I embrace a lot of fashion forward thinking, but this is a little hard to swallow.

Happy wacky Friday.

Rachel Zoe 101

Here are her 20 Wardrobe Essentials. Yes, I have been searching high and low for a nude pump, and yes, you do need to have two of the same pair of jeans, one hemmed for flats and the other for heels. She is so smart. Love her. I hope there will be a 3rd season of her show. Puh-lease, Bravo?

Say Hello

To the newest addition to my closet. Here's hoping I can look this chic whilst shopping at the market.

Can't wait to pair it with a brightly colored (lets be honest, fluorescent) tank and some sass-tastic shoes.

Get it at Anthropologie.

Sorority Row

Enjoy these words of fashion wisdom from the rush chair of a certain Cornell sorority. You will not be disappointed. All from Fashionista. Click the link if you want to read all SIX pages of rules. (Trust me, you do)

On Clothes

— Denim leggings are appropriate as long as it’s done right: aka, not from American Apparel and worn with chic, cool, chunky boots over them and a longer top.

— No satin dresses. No one looks good in satin dresses unless it’s from Betsey Johnson or Dolce & Gabbana, you weigh less than 130 pounds, have three pairs of Spanx on and it’s New Years Eve.

— No Frumpy.

On Shoes

— Yes to nice flats: Tory Burch, etc. More evening-ish, understated, patent leather good. I’m thinking mid-height Mary Jane heels, or mid-height chunky Kate Spade.

— Booties ok if you can pull them off, aka probably not.

On Jewelry

— I expect everyone to be wearing accessories. This is an important part of every outfit and can make or break any ensemble.

— Bangles need to coordinate. I’m not saying you have to wear a Harry Winston wreath, but I am saying I won’t tolerate any gross plastic shizzzz. I love things on wrists and I demand earrings if your ears are pierced.

A lovely Dolce & Gabbana Satin Dress (The model is definitely under 130lbs, don't worry)

Current Obsession: Anoraks

Not a trench coat. Not a parka. So not a rain coat.

I have one in black, but it's seen better days. Now I'm looking for a lighter, neutral color.

My options thus far:

Juicy Couture Tony Military Hooded Coat, $298

Laundry by Shelli Segal Urban Anorak, $68.90

The Juicy Couture one is my fave, but it's $298 price tag is not....I'm going to continue the hunt. Suggestions welcome!

H&M Goes Green for Spring

Lately, I have been kind of over H&M. Zara has really been bringing the heat, while H&M has been pretty lukewarm. That is, until now. They have an eco-friendly line coming to stores this spring that is equal parts sweet and sexxxy.

See for yourself.

Best Dressed - Globes Style

I was hugely disappointed with the red carpet this year. Better bring your A game to the Oscar's, ladies.

That being said, here's who I loved, er, didn't hate.

Sandy Bullock in Bottega Veneta

Olivia Wilde in Gucci (and my personal fave. can you say hot?)

Diane Kruger in Christian Lacroix Haute Couture
