Natalie Portman.

Congrats to one of my all time favorite actresses!

Preggers and engaged.
Sorry fellas.



Merry Christmas!
How were your holidays?

It's been a while since I've done my own post, but in the madness of work + holidays + moving out... it's just been a bit difficult to step aside for a mini photo shoot.

But now that things have settled down and my closet has been reorgnized, life as we know it on Pretty Stems, will return to normal.
I'm not really into the whole ugly sweater or red/green color combination of Christmas.
But I will wear my new favorite pleated skirt!

[Blouse & Skirt: Gap, Stockings: Target]

I am absolutely in love with the pleats.

My cousin, an ambitious little seamstress, promises to make me a full length pleated skirt.
I am anxiously waiting my dear!

[Boots with the fur: find here]

With New Years right around the corner, I hope you all find this a marvelous excuse to get glammed up and party your little hearts out!
Responsibly, that is.

To brighten up everyone's rainy moods, here's some yellow fashion I love:



And I love runway fashion, but seeing street style is ultimate inspiration.
Plus, it's just so pleasant seeing men and women look nice.
You can tell they feel good too.

This is making me want to score some more yellow!

Let's have some patience with this dang rain.
It is good for our environment.
And it gives us all the more reason to wear bright colors to brighten up everyone's dreary days.

Carine Roitfeld.

I wonder what she'll do next...




The Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue, Carine, is stepping down for a mysterious new turn in her career.
I'm curious!
Rumor has it she'll be working with Tom Ford (??)


Rumor has it Emmanuelle Alt will take over.
I think it's well deserved.
I am a big big fan of both.
Yay for Carine! She will be missed.

J. Crew.

This one is definitely random, but I realized I forgot to post this.
And being an avid fan of J. Crew, I assure you this is worth posting.

J. Crew's 2011 Spring Ready to Wear Collection.
I love the colors of these collared shirts.

 Isn't the pink one pink adorable?
And I'm not really a pink wearing lady.

 The romper makes me want to travel somewhere tropical.

And my favorite outfits that I am absolutely obsessed with!

I want!

Pre-Fall 2011 Collection:

They bring it every single time.
Inspired to pull out my thigh high boots.
I just wish the weather would cooperate a little.


Vera Wang.

Vera Wang's Pre-Fall 2011 Collection favorites:

Okay these outfits, I would LOVE to wear if I were in college again.
The cardigans, pleated skirts and knee high's?

It wouldn't be Vera Wang without some fem dresses right?

And everyone else is doing it.
Fur Trim:

You like the Beetlejuice tights on #1?

J. Mendel.

The J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2011 collection is tabbed as one of my favorites thus far:

The fur just looks so lush and warm.

Orange is not an easy color to wear as a gown.
But #2 is the perfect shade of pumpkin.



Fendi Pre-Fall 2011 collection favorites:

Hello knee length skirts!
I am definitely loving this trend.

I like that shade of blue.

Jason Wu.

Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2011 Collection:

This collection reminds me of the Lanvin-H&M bananza.
Definitely fond of #1 with the floppy bow.

Earthy neutral hues are my favorite!

Love Donna Karan's Pre-Fall 2011 collection.

I'm kind of digging the ponytail.
Simplicity is always pretty.

Chanel's Byzantine pre-fall collection all set with gold and sequins a plenty.

Jewel colored dresses I love:

And I'm not so sure about these pants... but they do look mighty comfy. 

Loving the cape, the gold and Karl's black & white.

And my favorites:

The shoes were either embellished sandals or thigh high boots.
LOVE it!
