It's unclear why I find floral backgrounds so aesthetically pleasing, but I would very much appreciate if I could study abroad in Versailles for a semester. Or a rose bush.

“I’ve never really been into makeup. My hair is my statement, along with my clothes. I love prints and colors and texture. I like to have a bit of fun with what I’m wearing and not be too serious. I guess it’s the same with my hair. I do feel like London has this thing where you could be wearing a bag on your head and nobody really looks at you. Or maybe it’s that British people are just too polite to stare. The only thing I won’t wear with my hair is flared jeans. I love them, but that look is way too seventies-child.” JSJ
Obsessed. At 23, Julia Starr-Jamois is already the fashion editor of Wonderland Magazine, NAM and Tommy Ton's new favorite it-girl, and the face of Tibi's new Spring 2012 ad campaign.

The more time I spend in Italy, the more I realize the importance of the detail. It's about the tiny gold pinky ring that's almost hidden from view. The layer of floral chiffon peeking from piles of denim. The hand sewn stitches inside a leather glove. In Italy, the details are everywhere. The unicorn fountain hidden behind a café. The handmade pasta in the shape of tiny gondolas. The sequined sneakers a 5 year old wore to the daycare I teach at. As I sit in my little apartment in Siena pouring over Tommy Ton's pictures from NYFW I realize the details are the things I search for first. It's the heart the barista made on the top of your cappuccino foam that makes you stop and smile. Hoorah for an insanely cheesy post but
ITALY MAKES ME SO EMOTIONAL.
