With all the fashion week (or month) madness going on, it’s difficult to pick one designer as my favorite but I must say, Alexander Wang is up there for me. If my pajamas looked anything like that, then I would be strutting around in them all day long. Of course it doesn’t hurt that Victoria’s Secret beauty Behati Prinsloo is the one strutting in them down the runway. As for the cropped pants and tank top, can you say ‘perfection’? It’s safe to put those pants in my “must-have” list for the spring!

Here are some pictures from my recent excursion into the city with my family. After months of hearing about the famed chocolate chip walnut cookies from Levain bakery on the Upper West Side, I was finally able to get my hands on one and I can assure you, the trip is worth it.

I can’t believe my internship with Harper’s Bazaar is over. This summer has flown by and in two short weeks, ill be back in the all-too-familiar Happy Valley. As a goodbye present, I got a pair of the cutest Chanel sunglasses and a black Elie Tahari purse. I haven’t used them yet  (partly because I’m afraid of damaging them in the slightest and partly because I haven’t been anywhere worthy of them) but I definitely will soon. Thankfully, the September issue finally arrived in the office on my very last day. The tomb-sized issue is absolutely GORGEOUS with SJP on the cover wearing Chanel. For now, I’m spending my days reading some September issues and relaxing before I head off to my very last semester of college!

I recently watched the entire OC series from beginning to end for the first time, yes I know I’m a few years too late, but hey, better late than never! One song really stuck out and that was Meredith by the English band Oceansize. It definitely has a very “chill” and “trippy” vibe which both really captured my attention. In case you’re in the process of re-watching the OC or considering it, which you totally should, the song debuts at the end of of episode 19 in season 3, when Ryan finally gets Sadie to stay with him and Marissa tries coke for the first time with Volchok on the beach. Watch and enjoy but I highly recommend looking up and listening to the full song.

Iron Ruler: Max Irons Discusses ‘The White Queen’
“The White Queen,” which airs Aug. 10 on Starz, features Max Irons as Edward IV of England, a reckless and impulsive king who falls in love with a commoner, marries her and throws into jeopardy everything for love. Irons, a teen heartthrob whose films, including “The Host” and “Red Riding Hood,” have been aimed at a young-adult audience, says he learned a lot about being a Royal by observing Prince William. “It’s the people around you that make you a king by the way they respond to you,” says Irons. “The first time I met Prince William was at a function. I remember him coming across the room…I was starstruck. It wasn’t his posture or demeanor that made him larger than life, but in fact, it was the way everyone was posturing to him.”Irons — whose father, actor Jeremy Irons, plays Pope Alexander VI in the historical fiction drama series “The Borgias” on Showtime — believes this could be his breakout role.  For More
