Random Weekly Roundup #44

Well I won't talk much as I assume you're all pretty invested in the VMA's right about now. I myself am not watching because I refuse to pay for cable, but I will hopefully be caught up with all the cray by tomorrow. I did see a couple of the red carpet looks and thought Gwen Stefani looked awesome (as usual). Whose look are you loving/hating? Please share in the comments because I love to talk red carpet. :)  

And onto some other water cooler-worthy topics this week...


1  How beautiful is this look from H&M Studio? And the rest of collection is just as good. (Dust Jacket Attic)  |  2  You'll never guess who owns the chic and masterfully decorated Soho loft. (Because I'm Addicted)
