you don't know how much i've missed you guys!! my internet service has been quite disappointing lately. i'm not even sure how long this taste of the internet is going to last. i felt so lost and out of touch! hence, the lack of posting...sorry about that
:( but i'm back (for now). i have come across a whole lot of stylish ladies over the weeks and felt compelled to share them with you. for most of them, i don't know their story. therefore, i won't even bother commenting. i shall let the photo evidence speak for itself. enjoy and digest, loves. besos jenna pearle*

three fly chicks

three gorgeous girls with three different styles of beauty...besos jenna pearle*

poor little rich girl

although christina appears quite depressed in this photo, she also looks absolutely stunning.  the canary blonde hair and white dress offset by the rediculously red lips in the luxurious setting...pure unadulterated perfection for me.  i think the frown adds a depth and story that wouldn't be there otherwise.  LOVE it!

olsen vs. flinstones- who rocked it best?

i came across this picture of the olsen twins as i usually do when looking at fashion forward photos.  but, something was different this time.  i really liked this orange dress with the blue scarf and found it safe and calming despite its radical hue.  it took a bit of time to understand why this felt so refreshingly familiar.  but then, i got it! this was fred's dress from one of my favorite childhood cartoons.  take a look below and tell me this doesn't reek of the flinstone patriarch...and you thought wilma and betty were the fashion phenoms!

video voyeur...bag lady

you may recall our new segment where once a week we celebrate music videos that are visually and musically stimulating.  erykah badu's "bag lady" is the choice of the week.  this is in honor of the tyler perry's "for colored girls" movie hitting theatres today. i am far from perry's biggest fan.  his work is usually not my style and borderline offensive.  safe to say, his work often rubs me the wrong way.  however, i am able to keep an open mind and hope for the best with the film.  the sheer talent and sophistication of the leading ladies and gentlemen starring in this movie radiates positivity.  erykah took on this piece of heavy piece of literature (shange's 'for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow isn't enuff')first with her "bag lady" video before perry dreamed of tackling this.  its one of my favorites for various reasons.  the color scheme and costumes are mesmerizing.  but what is most poignant is the theme.  we all have issues, we all have baggage we must acknowledge and overcome.  let me know your thoughts on this video in the comments.  isn't she fierce?  do you have any videos to suggest for video voyeur?

tommy boy

tommy hilfiger's line is so on point this season.  the clothes are...magnificent!  the preppy, laidback, layered look reminiscent of a wes anderson film (specifically 'the royal tenenbaums') is quite impressive.  i am especially pleased with the 2010 Fall Campaign Ad.  tommy captures fall and its colorful clothing so perfectly.  i suppose i could go on gushing but i think you get the point...go ahead and enjoy the shots above...

besos jenna pearle*
btw, check out this royal blog post on 'the royal tenenbaums' and the gorgeous costumes.  pretty interesting.
