Hi, darlings! I hope that your weekend is going amazingly well! First and foremost, I would like to thank all of my lovely readers and subscribers. All of you are absolutely amazing!
Due to my future summer internship and travel plans, I have decided to slightly modify the focus of my blog (… but not by much, so no worries!) from an Internet finds blog regarding art, music, fashion, and literature to a lifestyle blog with all the aforementioned topics and even more! Starting in June, I will begin to journal my own experiences both domestically and internationally. As a result, I will no longer be blogging at the following blog URL: https://disfordani.wordpress.com. (Aww… sad, I know, but I promise there is more fabulous-ness in store!)
I cannot thank you enough for your support, darlings! You’re the best!
I hope that you have a beautiful day; and I look forward to seeing you at the new website, sugar plums!
Hello, doll faces! I hope that all of you are having a warm and toasty Friday morning. While gazing upon next season’s couture Chanel line, I realized its similarities between the wardrobe in the motion picture, Marie Antoinette. From soft pastel hues to ornate jewels, this collection just screams royalty. Although I have never seen the movie, I thought that this video (above) and these looks (below) were certainly post-worthy and appropriate together.
Have a beautiful weekend, lovies!
Be you, be fabulous,
Okay, sugar plums: I promise I have a legit excuse for the mini post lull over the past week or so. I have been sick for over five days! No joke, darlings. Fortunately, I am all better now.
As spring looms near (and a little bit too far away), shorts are popping everywhere. I noticed this fresh new style trend last month: (… yes, muffins. In February. Haha.) Take a peek for yourself with H&M‘s sassy shorts report. Very informative if I may say so myself.
In addition to H&M, it seems that Forever 21 has countless pairs of these pants online. Is it just me or do you just love the fact that Forever 21 has several different brands to choose from? My favorite of the brilliant bunch? Love 21 Contemporary. With that written, my favorite shorts from the cluster of cuties would have to be Love 21 Contemporary’s long belted shorts.
What is your favorite trend of the spring season, doll faces? I would love to know!
Apologies for the humongous hiatus, loves! Things have been super busy lately…, but in the absolute best way possible. Nonetheless, I’m back and ready to go!
Just a heads-up, darlings: A mini (I promise.) lull until Thursday. Midterms are in full throttle. You know what that means? Study, study, study! Haha.
Speaking of midterms, while I will be blogging this week, I may not necessarily be publishing posts on my personal blog. Pretty please (with sugar on top) visit my art process blog. Thank you bunches, muffins! You’re the best!
FYI: American fashion designer, Thakoon Panichgon makes beautiful clothing. No lie, folks. It’s pretty much amazing. With its subtle color palette and modern, playful silhouettes, these garments just scream chic. Just give it looksy, darlings!
The pieces were from his Fall 2010 collection. A little ahead of myself, I know, but who could possibly resist? Want to see what Thakoon is up to this spring? Feast your eyes on these fun floral frocks.
Have a beautiful day, sugar plums!
Good evening, sugar plums! While completing my previous post pertaining to City & Me’s Spring/Summer line, I stumbled across ADIDAS new line. The feature of the Spring/Summer 2010 season, adidas Originals has just launched its spanking new blue label collection called, “Originals A.039,” the internal code for the Originals blue hue. Not only are these pieces playful but they are also bright and bubbly with fabulous flourescents and modern silhouettes. Just take a looksy for yourselves!
Have a splendid evening, honey bees!

Hi, doll faces! I hope that your week is going amazingly well! Guess what? Chinese fashion label, Me & City (Adorable name, right? Would make a super fun website handle. Haha.) has just launched an ad campaign with It Brits, Orlando Bloom and Agyness Deyn for their Spring/Summer 2010 line. Similar to the mocha mogul & Starbucks CEO, Howard Schultz, Me & City is not merely interested in selling their fresh and fun clothing but also a lifestyle to match. Smart, eh? Now that’s what I call public relations. Haha. Just see for yourselves, muffins.
Fabulous, right? Have a bright & sunny day, cupcakes!

A wintry yet lovely morning, muffins! Noticing decades worth of fashion trends, it is safe to say that blazers [and broad shoulders, for that matter] are not leaving the runways nor the sidewalks any time soon. Seeing women rock this timeless jacket for what seems like forever, I thought about the origin’s of these pop tops just a few hours ago: Menswear. Along with the blazer, the leather bomber, baggy pants, and pea coat also seem to be gracing the shoulders of both men and women alike. Speaking of menswear, just feast your eyes on the attire from this season’s fashion week.
What’s your favorite classic clothing article? Do tell!
Have a fabulous weekend, lovies!
Bright & shiny,
P.S. A little random, but just an FYI: I. love. these. shoes. These Elizabeth & James pairs of prettiness [ …discovered them while searching Polyvore for blazers] are both chic and works of [sculptural] art.
Good afternoon, cupcakes! Two summers ago, I visited the Textile Museum while exploring the District in search of an ideal venue for an upcoming event. While there, a friend of mine was kind of enough to buy me two exquisite Nigerian woven banglesfrom their gift shop in exchange for my vintage store plastics. It was a done deal. My newest TeMu darling? Vere Tyvek bags. In addition to being recycable, these stellar sacks are rather hardy, holding up to 20 lbs. of goodies.
Another fabulous feature? The sharp colors are so cool and cutting edge! I have come to realize that I am pretty much a sap for anything metallic these days, owing to my pet Christmas present last year.
Have a super duper Saturday!
P.S. I think if my Nigerian bracelets were to ever be converted into a purse, the following would be the end result […and it would be uh-mazing! Haha.]:

A very good night, sweeties! As spring begins to loom amongst us, pastels and candy colors are in full bloom, putting me in the mood for something light and sweet in the kitchen. Since it is not yet time to retire your peacoat to the closet, fruit-flavored cold treats will have to wait awhile. Cupcakes seem just right. My three reasons for loving these bite-sized babies?
1) They are teeny tiny and tidy. Who can say no to miniature anything? It just makes everything better [… and they are mess-free due to their small size. Yay!].
2) They are plain dee down delightful. Because these cutie pies are itsy bitsy, they are also too adorable for words. It is safe to say that they are literally the “babies” (= wee and darling) of the dessert world.
3) They are versatile. Cupcakes are capable of anything! Case in point: the super cute cookbook: Hello, Cupcake! I never knew the sheer and utter adaptibility of these precious puppies until I glanced through its photographs. Amazing, much? Yeah! The “Hello, Cupcake!” blog is pixel proof. So creative. Makes me want to take up vegan cupcaking, which is definitely a possibility, especially over the summer months. Thank you tons, Hello Cupcake: You’re the best!
As I surfed the Internet this afternoon, I stumbled across a series of high fashion cupcakes. Photographed by Therese Aldgard and styled by Lisa Edsalv, these Swedish talents created a divine photo shoot of whimsical desserts. Take a look for yourself, muffins!
Until next post,
A late morning hello, precious readers! Due a plethora of assignments that I need to finish, I cannot blog as long as I would like to today.
As I looked at Asian Cajuns (These darling doubles are uh-mazing. Their chic, clean blog is definitely a must-read for any fashion blogger. I love them!) former blog location the other day, I began to realize how essential lighting is to fabulous photography while perusing through a photo shoot that they styled awhile back. Whether warm and low-key or bold and bright, lighting is key to setting the mood.
Below are several of my favorite photos styled by this superb sister act. Enjoy, loves! (I know I did! Haha.)
Have a beautiful day, muffins!
