Although I have to admit I was not feeling it at first. I really thought she had honed her edgy- bohemian look over the last couple of years and I had enjoyed seeing that look evolve on her.
Her auburn hair colour I covet and she always had an edge to her ensembles, even if it was just a glimpse of her ankle tattoo. It's her warm and down-to-earth self-deprecating personality that reflects her outer glow and makes her someone you would like to have as your friend I think. She's a little bit naughty too and isn't afraid to show it.
Her portfolio for Missoni in 2006 was beautifully shot and showed Drew looking like a gorgeous and sexy Italian seniorina.
The first I saw of Drew's change in style the Golden Globe Awards in January. I was not sure that her stylist (if she was using one) had steered her in the right direction at first. I was just not expecting to see her blonde, frou-frou-ed and so Hollywood!
Then as I saw more and more of her Grey Garden's premiere looks I began to look forward to what she would wear next.
I'm a sucker for assymetrical patterns, stripes and I just can't say no to a sexy red heel!
While I look forward to her return to the auburn hair, jeans and relaxed attitude, I am liking this look a lot more now.
I've been dying to wear this blazer. It was part of my uniform when I worked at Zara, which was basically just clothes they grabbed off the racks and gave to everyone!

Still, here is some makeup that I love and wish I could recreate for myself.
Almost all of my makeup is Urban Decay, so I sort of tried it, but less flashy looking:
It came out nicely, but photographed horribly! This was the best picture I could get. I tried to do it with spring colors because it was so sunny outside.
I love the cat eye look. I think it accentuates the eyes beautifully. And my favorite makeup artist did a wonderful version of the cat's eye.
This is Xenia, aka Doe Deere. She has her own line of makeup and she does wonders with it.
Here she does her makeup as Fafi
She also does some really flamboyant ones such as this:
This makeup, by makeup artist Miskha Mink, uses Doe Deere's eyeshadow
And then Alice Point had a friend do her makeup and it came out really lovely!

BUT, there are so many skirts that are unique and have different structures that I want each and every one of them.

This skirt is super cute, but there’s something about it or my body that doesn’t quite work perfectly. Because the waist is so narrow and the zipper doesn’t go down as far as it could, I have trouble getting it over my butt; in fact, without some pretty awkward squeezing, it doesn’t go on that way. So I have to pull this skirt down over my head to get it on!
I fear today was the last of the nice weather, but I’ll see.
Another opportunity to show you some gorgeously ridiculous heels, such as these works of art from Galliano's 09/10 Winter collection.
Even though this is an old shot of Kate Moss (from a Pirelli Calendar), I think am liking the idea of a beret this Autumn.
I can't go past a pair of Converse and cargo pants, one of my all time favourite things to wear.
Another gorgeous pair of red shoes, simply to die for!
Thank you to The Sartorialist and to Bliss blog for some of these images.

Beautiful weather is here! Probably not to stay, but at least it's here right now.
Along with the super comfy pants I bought at H&M, I also bought this skirt, which was amazing to me. Normally, I can't find a single thing I like at H&M or I can't find something that fits me. I don't know if it's the stores I go to or if it's the stores in the U.S. or if it's just me. All I know is that I was shocked when I found two pieces that I was searching for and I really loved.
