Cheaply Chic- Rihanna At The Studio Monday, Jan 4 2010 

Rihanna was spotted going to her music studio in Chelsea working on her currently released album, Rated R. Thank you to Ultimate Rihanna for the photo!

I do know that the bag she is rocking is an Alexander Wang Rocco Mini Duffle, but the rest of the ensemble, I am unsure of. If you want this look for less, check this out:

Forever 21 Splendid Career Jacket $15

Forever 21 Faux Fur Stole $8.80

Wet Seal 3/4 Sleeve Pocket Shirt $10

Xhilaration for Target Fashion Ruffled Mini Skirt $17

Urban Originals Boots $26

Urban Originals Studded Tote $40

Go Jane Temple Design Sunglasses $5.20

Forever 21 Metal Looped Cuff $3.80

Total Ensemble: $125.80

Now, the Alexander Wang Rocco Mini Duffle that Rihanna is rocking retails for $850 alone, so the cost of this ensemble, which closely resembles the shapes and colors of Rihanna’s ensemble, is not as bad as one would initially think. If you want to try and find a look on your own, here are the key pieces you need to have:

1. A cropped blazer

2. A fur scarf or stole

3. A plaid shirt

4. A neutral tone body-con mini skirt

5. Ankle platform boots

6. A bag with studded details

7. A metallic cuff bracelet

8. Round frame sunglasses

Happy New Year! New Things Coming Sunday, Jan 3 2010 

Happy New Year everyone! Sorry I haven’t been posting, but I’ve been busy being a college mom, and haven’t had much time for any of my blogs or social networking sites. However, I’m back to bring more fashion posts and beauty finds. I want to do news, but that will have to be special posts, more like my opinion on it. Anyways, I want to say i had a great time for New Years and want to show three inspiration boards for my ensembles for the past few days.

I wore this NYE 09 with friends, we decided on an “Old School Hip Hop” theme. It was so much fun, we went to a 70s party, even though we weren’t dressed for it. It was crazy fun.


I wore this ensemble New Years Night, we went clubbing and I felt so fierce. My actual dress is a vintage black and gold dress, I love it!


I wore this yesterday just to chill, at first. But then I stepped outside, it was way too cold so I changed into a not so cute ensemble, but I was really warm 🙂


This year, like I mentioned before, I will be doing more styling posts, as well as celebrity insipred ensembles. I will post about new beauty products I purchase and even do some interviews hopefully. It’s going to be a good year, I hope everyone is ready!

Style Profile: A Preppy Girls Life Tuesday, Nov 17 2009 


The life of a modern day prepster is one full of upscale events and brunches with fellow colleages. So, it’s only right that she is dressed for the occasion. She usuall dresses causal for everyday activities, but still remains classic with a polo shirt, pleated shorts and cute simple flats, her signature style of earrings include studs, preferably pearl. Her jewelry is simple, yet classic and stands out. The classy quilted bag is a great small purse that adds a touch of retro chic to the look.

When it’s time to go out on the town with friends, she remains her classic look by wearing simple dresses and adding glamourous accessories to make the look pop. She starts with a simple two tone dress, then adds a great belt and diamond/rhinestone accessories to add that touch of glamour. By wearing lace gloves, she looks fashion-forward and retains that “Old-Hollywood Glam” appeal. A white clutch may seem troublesome, but that’s no problem for the prepster woman, it’s a must have.

Now it’s time to hit the office in a chic and again, classic ensemble. The classic white button up, black pencil skirt, and black pumps are not just great basics for her wardrobe, but can be mixed and matched with many of the other pieces found in her wardrobe. By wearing simple gold jewelry, it maintains the business rapour and even gives a slightly sexy aura to the look. A great black tote is another essential that will be timeless.

Hope you enjoyed going through the life of a preppy girl. Check back for more Style Profiles, right here at The ISMC!
