I love this chunky brown sweater. Or maybe I just to be the girl in the catalog wearing the sweater, either way... Did you notice the zipper on the shoulder? Must have for fall.
Envelope Sweater $98

I heard a rumor that Kim Cattrall approached Maximiliano Palacio last weekend in the Hamptons at the Ellen's Run party for Breast Cancer about playing her new love interest in The Sex and The City 2 movie. I guess Samantha Jones last hunk, Gillies Marini, won't be returning. If he agrees we will probably get everything but full frontal...just a thought....
And yes. That is the same "Max" from Real Housewives NYC.

Sorry content has been so sporadic recently. I'm desperately trying to find the balance with a few other side projects I have going on and keeping the flow with K&T. Bear with me as it all comes together, and I promise to do my best to keep up with new content!

I just picked up this Silence and Noise blazer from Urban Outfitters for $78. I can't help but feel like I am on the tail end of this trend; I've wanted a blazer for a long time and was never able to find one I really wanted in my price point. I kept going back to Urban Outfitters because they irrefutable have the best selection of blazers in my price range. Finally I just caved and bought a blazer by a label I tried on months ago. Check out this short film Urban made with my new blazer in peach. (I bought the black)

I recently gave an interview to Health.com on one of my more sensitive subjects, the weight I gained in college. Before college I had never been someone that needed to worry about what they ate. I grew up in a health conscious house (read : image conscious), and for the most part junk foods were never available to me. Once I had a swipe card in my possession all bets were off. I'm also sure that drinking 5 nights a week may have had something to do with it. It has taken me close to 3 years to take the weight off. Check out a portion of the article below... Seeing my stretch marks in print is almost as bad as on my thighs, but if I can stop an unfortunate freshman from gaining a few pounds its worth the humiliation.

For the September issue of Elle, Jennifer Aniston looks flawless in this strapless leather dress. Stepping a little too close to Angelina Jolie's fashion territory? Although I haven't seen Angelina in a little leather dress since the premiere of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, there is no doubt in my mind that she coined the look. That is why I don't think that it was an accident that right after the surfacing of Jen's cover that Angelina showed up to the premiere of Inglorious Basterds wearing her token leather little dress.
Granted, when I picture Brad and Angelina living in some beautiful country house with all their beautiful children scurrying around, I picture Angelina, confident, beautiful, and not giving an F what Jennifer Anniston does or wears. But then I remember the Angelina that dated Billy-Bob with the whole blood around the neck thing... oh and that time that she dated that bald Asian chick DJ, and I begin to think that she maybe human just like the rest of us.
Amazing? Or just plain catty? Either way the only real question now is who wore it best?
This PAYDAY pick is a tribute to in between season fashion. Its not quite Summer, not quite Fall, just right.
On the Left : Waterfall Sleeve Blouse $188
On the Right : Chambray Buttondown $68
(btw - I'm seeing Chambray EVERYWHERE right now. )
Available at Anthropologie, of course!
And what is this? Perez Hilton is taking over another facet of our internet by launching a celebrity based fashion website, CoCo Perez. I think he has just given me a reason to never go to perezhilton.com again.

Buzz has been circulating about Lauren Conrad's book, L.A. Candy, making the NYT Best Sellers list. I'm all about giving credit where credit is due, but I think that when mentioning that L.A. Candy is on the best sellers list it is also important to mention that she falls under the category of Children's (actually, correction, Children's Chapter books), which mean that this week she is on the list sandwiched somewhere between Daniel X : Watch the Skies and The Graveyard Book.
This is the Lumene Mascara that is featured in the Budget Beauty video below. Out of all the things that they talked about this is the one product that I instantly sought out.
Available at Ulta.com. Click here!

Ok, so totally cheesy, but friends that dress together stay together. After putting up the pictures from the 4th I had a ton of people ask me where our matching swimsuits were from (read : this post is over a month late!). These Jantzen Vamp's can be purchased at Macys.com, if you can believe it. When I was cruising the site I also came across the bikini version of the Vamp and it was love at first sight. The Vamp shown above is actually the first one piece I've ever own. Slowly making my way to being 26, sitting in a high beach chair, and drinking white wine spritzers? God, I hope not. Finally having the ability to sit up in a bathing suit while drinking a few beers without worrying about sucking in? Yes, please.
Vamp 1 piece $100
Vamp 2 piece $116

Let's talk about Google Voice, Google's new call forwarding system. This newly launched system will generate a number for you, and this number will be yours until the end of TIME. You will be able to give your Google Voice number out to whomever you wish, then depending on the caller have that call forwarded to either your cell, work, home, or just straight to voice mail. As to be expected Google Voice comes with some other cool features like the ability to READ your voice mails online. Just like with the start of Gmail, Google Voice is invite only. I am somewhere around the 14 hour mark, patiently waiting for my invite... hoping I can lock down 123- Arax-Rae... take it and die.

I've been looking for a belt bag (read : a glorified fanny pack) and I actually really like these. I seem to always been the girl on the dance floor with my bag on the ground, under a table, and out of sight somewhere. This was fine when I was toting around cheap bags with cheap contents inside... now that my purse + contents = more than my 401 K, I'm a little hesitant to drop the bag and throw my hands up. These belt bags might just be cute enough to wear around your waist and get away with it.
Hollywood Intuition Belt Bag $19.99
I also really like this Hollywood Intuition Snake Skin Tote. But I would be wrong to not mention that it is an exact replica of the Beirn Jenna Hobo bag. I have yet to see this bag in person so I can't vouch for how it will look face to face, but I love this shape and I'm in a phase where I'm obsessed with all things animal print.
Hollywood Intuition Snake Skin Tote $22.99

In the beginning of July I signed up to receive Rachel Zoe's "Zoe Report". I had completely forgotten all about it until this morning when my very first Zoe Report email came through. It was just a welcome email alerting me that her real fashion, beauty, and lifestyle favorites will be coming tomorrow. Zoe's site says that the email will be daily, let's hope that she pull through with content. I will be sure to keep you posted.
To sign up for your very own Zoe Report subscribe here!
And while on the topic of the all-mighty-Zoe, the new season of Rachel Zoe Project will now premiere on August 24th instead of August 25th. Set your DVR's.
