Horst: Photographer of Style

Horst can only be described as one of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century. 
While looking at his work, I was stunned at the range of his subjects which included presidents, actresses, and of course models. His ability to capture the beauty of the human body and shape resulted in a close working relationship with Vogue and other publications, making him a highly sought after photographer.

Kimye x Balmain

I think it's fair to assume that no couple owns more Balmain clothing, footwear, or accessories than the Wests. We've come to expect their appearance at every show with North in tow as well as New York date nights clad in matching Balmain. However, their metaphorical love affair with Oliver Rousteing has now been cemented by the decision to cast them as the faces of the brand's S/S '15 menswear collection. In typical Kimye style, racy and commercial meets high fashion. Personally I'm still unsure of what to make of this campaign but I guess you can't knock them for trying.

Maokong Gondola and Zhinan Temple

This week, I was lucky enough to have the company of my brother, who took time out of his busy schedule to come visit me in Taiwan for Christmas. With it being his first time in Taiwan and the East, we went on a tourist overload starting with Maokong Gondola and headed to one of the great temples overlooking Taiwan.

The Oversized Scarf

Nothing says winter like an oversized scarf and when it comes to size, bigger is better!
Besides obvious comfort and practicality, they're an easy way to accessorize and add volume to any winter wardrobe. Although I may have just ordered three from ASOS, a girl can never have too many oversized scarves.

Santa Tell Me

I have to admit, I've been fully converted since hearing Ariana Grande's new holiday track. This single is definitely the icing on the cake for Ariana who finally seems to have broken away from her Disney Chanel persona, stunning all of us earlier this year with her album My Everything.
