500 days of fashion

Shawna from Poppies and Sunshine requested that I do an entry on Zooey Deschanel's fashion from the film 500 Days of Summer. The outfits in this film mix vintage with feminine which creates an innocent girl next door look. I love these outfits inspired by the film and I hope you will too!

Polish and shoes

Sally Hansen's Insta-dri nail polish is my favorite, as the name would suggest it dries quickly and has a long lasting bold color. Here are some of the brilliant shades that the line offers with some fun, flirty shoes to show off your newly polished tootsies!

California Girl

Katy Perry has a fun, flirty style that is modern meets 50's pin-up girl, and I can't get enough of it. This California Girl is now number 1 on Maxim's Hot 100 list of 2010 and it isn't hard to see why. Here are some swimsuits from Modcloth that have Katy's name written all over them(and they are all under $90).
