I'm currently in the process of moving and haven't been able to blog due to lack of internet... However, I should be nice and settled by mid next week! Can't wait to show you my recent outfits!

I am so excited to have been selected as a Shop It To Me Trendsetter! I'm featured on the Shop It To Me trendsetters page here:
You simply select the designers that you care to shop for and enter in your sizes. When these designers have pieces in your size on sale, you are alerted by email! You also control the days in which your "sale mail" is sent to you. Such an amazing idea.

I just recently went shopping and have loads of outfit post ideas that I can't wait to share.
Here are a few photos from my most recent editorial shoot. The locations we shot were amazing, an old abandoned laundry mat, a flea market, an out of order gas station, and in a vintage powder blue convertible.
A few of the other photos from the shoot are featured on the right. All credited to Meredith Mashburn photography.
Needless to say, it was marvelous.
Tell me what you think!

Recently Mr. Jaammj contacted me and asked if I would write out a little interview for his blog. Jaammj.com features snippets about different artists, exhibitions, fashionistas's etc. It's always nice to have someone appreciate what you are doing and to spread the word!
Here is the interview:
How did you start Ashes of Laughter?
I am actually very new to the blogging world. I only created my blog as of late January 2010. I happened across Liz Cherkasova’s blog, Late Afternoon, and instantly fell in love with the idea of a blog. A place to share every thought crossing my mind, however random it may be. I also love any and everything fashion. Fashion is not something that should be taken seriously, the whole idea should be light-hearted and fun, something to brighten a rainy day.
How did you come up with the name Ashes of Laughter?
I have always been very interested in the music world. I think it’s incredible how a song can completely change your mood and outlook. I happened to choose the name “Ashes of Laughter” because the song “Ophelia” by The Band had been playing in my head, on my computer, in my car, for weeks. I tend to find a song and play it until it no longer evokes the same mood-changing magic it originally did upon first play.
What is your favorite accessory?
I am OBSESSED with rings, especially cocktail rings. In my opinion the bigger, the better.
Is there any fashion advice you would like to pass on to your readers?
I feel that an outfit thrown on at the last minute can often look the most put together. Don’t stunt your creativity by overly planning your outfit, you want it to look effortless.

So excited to be featured!
It's always amazing to be able to go home and feel as if nothing has changed. I was browsing through Lulu's look-books (who knew they had them?) and found a few lustworthy stylings.

"Save me, San Francisco" by Train has seriously been on repeat in my car for two weeks. The perfect song for summer a drive.

Went out for a friends birthday this past weekend, and decided to make an outfit post of it.
Oh and featured in the post is my St. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album that I matted in pink and framed after seeing it in Spain two years ago.
It took me almost a full year to track it down and I finally stumbled upon it in a grungy record shop in West Village. Unfortunately it's still sitting on the floor of my room... I move in two weeks so I'll see if I can give it the space on the wall it deserves.
p.s. excuse my sorry excuse for painted nails, and red eyes.
These are my own (unfortunately her foot is a 5 1/2):
