GIRL CRUSH ALERT!

My love of blogs all began with Kimberly Wilson and Hip Tranquil Chick. Since then, i've grown to love design and decor blogs (Apartment Therapy, decor8, design sponge, etc.), simple living/family blogs (Domestic Reflections, Lobotome, Simple Lovely, and yes maybe even a little tabloid gossip via the infamous Perez Hilton. Surprisingly the one genre of blog i never got too into was fashion. Considering i used to (corporate America has destroyed my sense of style) be obsessed with fashion/shopping/trends/etc., i always found it surprising. Maybe it's because i never found a blog that presented affordable options (Gucci, Chanel, and Prada i love, but i CANNOT and probably will not ever AFFORD)... or maybe because the style presented was never achievable in real life. Whatever the case may be, i am happy to announce that i've not only stumbled upon a fashion blog that i LOVE (Forever 21 mixed with Anthropologie? lacey, frilly dresses with rugged motorcycle boots? a lace slip with badass red boots?? YES, please!!), but i've also found my latest girl crush.

Now that Lindsay Price and her hot bod are no longer gracing the small screen, there's been a bit of a void in my life. I enjoy looking at pictures of beautiful women who have exceptional style - what can i say? And i'd prefer not to turn towards the pages of People and US Weekly if i can help it. So while perusing some of my fave blogs today, i stumbled across Cupcakes and Cashmere. The name alone drew me in, but once i started scrolling i became hopelessly smitten. Hmm what can i say about Emily, this gorgeous 20-something SoCal gal with a killer wardrobe, killer bod, great job, popular blog, and probably incredible boyfriend? Oh, just that i want to BE HER, and since that can't happen, i want to be her BFF. Or, at the very least, i'd love to take her to lunch (and perhaps do some shopping?) and ask her the requisite 100+ questions i like to ask all potential BFF's. Unfortunately for me (and fortunately for her, some might say..) she lives in L.A. and probably has zero time for nutcases like moi. Still, a girl can dream, yes? Plus i have all of her blog archives to go through. ;-)

Oh and in case you didn't believe me?
