Celeb Style Sunday: Helena Bonham Carter

 Helena Bonham Carter Alice in Wonderland at Indie Fashion Addict
I am a huge Tim Burton fan, so naturally I am very excited to see his remake of "Alice in Wonderland" which hits theaters this week. His leading lady, Helena Bonham Carter, always seems to be very creative with her fashion choices and I've found that her ensembles are either really beautiful or really terrible. She wore the above outfit to the "Alice in Wonderland" premiere in London this week - a total disaster in my opinion. It looks like a reconstructed '80s prom/bridesmaid dress. Let's hope the movie is better than this outfit.

Wearable Art: Tetsuya Uenobe

A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Japanese designer Tetsuya Uenobe. He creates very unique, avant-garde shoes mostly inspired by various plants and animals. His handmade shoes have been displayed in museums, but he also sells them for people to wear. Above are some examples of his work - the stretching cat shoe, the swan shoe and the bird-hatching shoe. What do you think? Do these shoes belong on your feet, in an art gallery or both?

This week's addictions . . .

Seal animal at Indie Fashion Addict
Happy Monday everyone! I had a wonderful weekend visiting my best friend Jennie in San Diego where I ate way too much and spent too much money. So overall, it was a great time! I only have one addiction for you today and it is this adorable seal that Jennie and I spotted at Coronado Island. He stayed for a few photos and then ducked back under the water. No need for a trip to Sea World.

Jerseymaids Night Light

I was having dinner with my friend Charlie the other night and she told me that I should add some more personal tidbits to my blog. So, besides indie fashion, here is a short list of a few other things that I am addicted to:
1. Flossing/Dental hygiene. Yes, I'm serious.
2. Cheese. No explanation needed.
3. Alvin and the Chipmunks. I also LOVE the Chippettes.
4. Hot air balloons. This partly stems from my love of Alvin of the Chipmunks and the wonderfulness that is The Chipmunk Adventure. If you haven't seen this movie, rent it NOW.
5. Harry Potter. These books are amazing.
6. Cow milking. It is a dream of mine to one day milk a cow. I decided this my freshman year of college and it has yet to happen. But it will happen someday. And there will be photos.
7. Rubber duckies. Yes, I realize I'm 27.

Now that you know about some of my other addictions, I must share with you something wonderful that I found on Etsy - Jerseymaids is selling a night light with hot air balloons on it! I think I'm in love.

This week's addictions . . .

One of my bosses loves all things with anchors, so I thought I'd do a little salute to sailor style this week. I'm well aware of how risqué and scary the sailor look can get, but when done right, I think it's absolutely adorable:

Celeb Style Sunday: Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams Berlin Film Festival at Indie Fashion Addict
Happy Valentine's Day lovelies! I hope you took a moment today to tell the wonderful people in your life that you love them. Here's something I love: this adorable and comfy-looking dress worn by Michelle Williams at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival. It reminds me of something that the ladies over at All-Mighty might create.

HRC Exclusives by Alex & Chloe

Alex & Chloe HRC tee at Indie Fashion Addict

Los Angeles-based designers Alex & Chloe have designed a hoody, T-shirt and necklace to benefit Human Rights Campaign.These painted heart items are perfect for Valentine's Day and 100 percent of the purchase goes towards HRC's fight for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality. Also, one of the things that I love about Alex & Chloe is that they create clothing that looks great on both men and women.

This week's addictions . . .

I've always been a girly girl  and therefore have always loved the color pink. With Valentine's Day inching closer and closer, pink is everywhere. Here are a few dreamy dresses that would make any girl feel like a princess:
