currently craving

Holy amazing. I need these hot pants/hot shorts/whatever-you-call-them in my life. Pair with tights, a cropped over-sized sweater and booties..... Ta-Da, fall outfit. Check these out from H&M.

So crazy about this large Lanvin statement necklace. These huge gems were all over the Lanvin RTW show. My personal fave: the one that reads 'Help'. 

Every woman needs a floppy felt fedora this fall (say that 3 times fast). These work wonders on bad hair days! Check out some of my favorites here.

Smitten. These Minimal Lace Up heels by Jeffery Campbell must have a home in my closet. ASAP. Need/Want/Splurge.

This Ruffle Trim Knit Trench from Free People literally makes me swoon. Boys can barely make me swoon, but this jacket..... gets me every single time I look at it.

Oxblood lips. Coming in hot again this fall. I love it and I will own it again this year. You should too! 

What are you currently craving??

fall trends 2013

So incredibly excited to be writing again!!! I've taken a month long hiatus due to lots of exciting things happening in the life of Jessica Lee....

First off, I am pleased to announce an amazing career change. I have decided to join a wonderful & growing company - Free People (part of Urban Outfitters). Hands down, best career decision I have ever made and the discount isn't too bad either..... Hello new wardrobe. When one door closes, another opens, and this door is HUGE!!!!

Now, let's chat about fall fashion 2013.

The September issue is known as one of the most important issues for all fashion publications. Not only does it pave the way for what's going to be FABULOUS for the upcoming year, but it also allows us magazine hoarders to add to our collection and drool over items we can't even imagine being in our closet.... Hello Chloe` Baylee tote and Celine Chunky Rib Sweater.

While reading through my $50 worth of September issues (I know, it's ridiculous), I compiled a list of what I believe will be fabulous this fall.

#1.) PLAID PRINTS: grunge, Nirvana, and flashbacks to Beverly Hills 90210 style.
Emerson nailed it with this dress. 
Loving this plaid Suno coat paired with an embellished bottom.

#2.) FUR : faux, of course. 
Boderline DYING over this Jason Wu dress. 
Marc Jacobs. You can never go wrong when you mix hot pants with fur. 

#3.) TAPERED TROUSERS : made for comfort and style. Pair with an oversized sweater and booties... Perfection for fall.

#4.) CULTURED PRINTS : an elevated form of Brocade stemming from the 'Brocade Craze' in Fall 2012, these prints/textures are beautiful and aesthetically stimulating. 

#5.) FRINGE : need I say more? Channel your inner hippie with this 'I always want to run my fingers through it' texture. 
I need this in my life. Thank you, Blumarine for designing this.
Bottega Veneta. Stunning.

#6.) ANIMAL PRINT : as much as I do not want to embrace this, because it reminds me way too much of my younger years. There are some pretty great pieces this season in the 'Cheetah Print'.
Emilio Pucci. These boots. These shorts. Uh-mazing.

What's your favorite trend this fall??

Thanks for reading!!!

made in the 216

How adorable is this artwork?! 

I am so incredibly excited for this event (I typically say that about all Cleveland events), but this one is a bit more special than the others.....It is my dearest friend Jennie Doran's first MADE IN THE 216 event as OWNER of Room Service!! Such an exhilarating time for her and I cannot wait to see how amazing this event is going to be! 

Now onto the details:
On Friday, August 2, Cleveland’s original artisan pop-up shopping event returns to Ohio City for a sixth year, with a jam-packed weekend of local shopping, music, and food, showcasing the city’s prolific creative community. Thousands are expected to descend on the event space—a previously vacant storefront in the market district at West 25th St and Jay—throughout the weekend, to shop from a carefully selected spectrum of locally designed and produced goods from clothing, to home ware, to artwork, curated by artisan boutique, Room Service Cleveland.

The event will feature live shows from local bands in the store itself, as well as down the block at Joy Machines and the Old Angle. Musical line-up includes: Very Knees, Sweet Gravy James, Molly Lape, Cheap Clone, Shit Box Jimmy, Extra Medium Pony, Blisse, Sammy Slims, Noon, Uno Lady, Beach Stav, Kid Tested, and Next New Nothings.

Cleveland’s food scene will also be celebrated, with local brew from Great Lakes Brewing Co, and eats provided by Touch, Umami Moto and Clark Pope Catering.

Good food, good jams, handmade treasures, and all of the CLE creatives.... Who wouldn't want to attend?!

See you there!

flashback friday : M83 - saturdays = youth

Please excuse my week and a half delay. I've recently made an exciting career change and that, along with my little man, have pretty much consumed the past 9 days. Fear not babes, I'm back with some exciting things coming up!

Now onto FF.
This album cover can easily be placed in my top 5 favorite album covers of all time. I have to admit, up until this album came out, I had never heard of M83. But it's been a love story in the making. Their indie-electronic-ness can set you up for a chill listening session, or a dance party depending on what you are in the mood for. I will never get sick of this album, especially 'We Own The Sky' and 'Kim & Jessie'. M83 makes the weirdest, amazing, and mind-puzzling videos, which makes me adore them even more.

I personally am a fan of the man in the skeleton costume above.......




Happy weekend, friends.

summer accents

If there are two things I cannot get enough of, it's nail polish and lipstick. Lately I've found myself getting bored with my basic go-to nail colors : orange, red, pink, and the occasional teal. So I decided to try the whole accent nail thing and I must say, I never really liked the look, until now! I played around with some hues and finally found some color combinations I can work with. The summer season allows you to be creative with a wide array of bright, vibrant colors (one of the many billion reasons I love summer). Below are some combinations you are sure to love....




Which combo do you like??

currently craving

Summertime calls for lightweight pieces, minimal makeup and fabulous shades. One of my favorite things about summer is how everyone looks effortlessly beautiful. It's amazing what a little sun can do for your confidence! The smell of sunscreen makes me so happy, I never want summer to end. Here are some of my favorites this week.

1. This gorgeous, very bohemian Free People piece will be in my closet at some point before summer ends.
2. In love with these Fantas Eyes round sunglasses from Nordstrom. Very 1960's.
3. The BEST exfoliating face wash I've ever used - Thanks to my June Birchbox. NO JOKE. This stuff is pretty great and smells just like Lemonheads! Seriously. I want to eat it when I wash my face. Weird.
4. This also came in the June Birchbox for some subscribers. I confiscated this fabulous little fat lip pencil from my best friend (who received it in hers). It's my new favorite lip obsession.
5. I cannot get enough of high-waisted denim shorts. I am currently smitten with these from Urban Outfitters.

What are you craving this week??
