Rachel Zoe and Grey Goose

I'm kind of obsessed with Rachel Zoe. She's fabulous, has the most amazing collection of vintage, wears whatever she wants, always has a coffee in hand, and styles for a living. I mean, really--her life is ba-na-nas.  Now, I am a college student and, though I do usually have coffee in hand, my life hardly resembles Rachel's at all--except when I wear this jacket. I call it my Zoe jacket, because the shape/color resembles jackets I've seen her wear a thousand times. Granted, hers are all vintage Chanel, but a thrifted ByCorpus jacket is the closest I'll be getting to that anytime soon. Also I've never seen her in cut-off jean shorts, but I wouldn't hate it. 

I wanted to soften up this look with some girly nails, so I tried this look that's been going around Pinterest: you dip nails in alcohol & then lay strips of newspaper across them and the text transfers onto your nail...which explains the fifth of Grey Goose I had out at 10 in the morning. My roommate walked sleepily past me, saw the vodka and didn't even blink--mid terms are definitely here.

You definitely remind me of her in this look. I really like the jacket/short/and tights combination. Also your nails look great. What a neat trick. The part about your room mate walking in to see you with the grey goose cracked me up.

I've been wanting to try the newspaper nails for a long long time...but I don't know why I haven't gotten around to it! Lovely outfit, though.

What a great look! I've been dying to find a pair of good cut offs. Still hasn't happened. And that's one of my favorite nail tricks.
