Three Questions With Coco Rocha

Coco Rocha is one of those effortlessly chic and amazingly NICE super models that you actually want to be friends with.  I never thought I’d say that about a supermodel…or ANY model, for that matter, but after chatting with the Banana Republic Mad Men Collection (available starting TODAY!) spokesperson, I’m totally #TeamCoco.

Q: What’s your favorite piece in the Banana Republic Mad Men Collection?
A: (This dress here)  It’s a bold statement…you want to be the person everyone’s looking at going ‘wow, where did you get that from?’

Q: What advice would you give yourself five years ago?
 Five years ago…that’s not that long ago, but still far enough…I think about being a model and the jobs that I chose, I didn’t have a voice for myself…I think that I could’ve reassured myself that you know what, what you’re doing IS ok, you know what? Go for it.

Q: What are your top three favorite beauty products?
 I’d have to say, it’s all makeup-related.  I wear makeup every single day, even to the grocery store, so I’m not that model that doesn’t wear makeup.  I’d have to say eyeliner, you can do a lot with it.  Cover up, because I am very, VERY fair so my freckles come out (she loves L’OREAL Magic Smooth Soufflee) and a good contour cream.


Me, in the same dress Coco is wearing…yeah, GREAT decision. LOL.

This Week’s Online Shopping Haul

Once again, my wallet had a mind of it’s own.  Here’s what I bought this week and can not wait to receive!

Banana Republic The Mad Men Collection animal print cardigan: I obviously love leopard, when done right, but after reading all of the great blog coverage this new collection has been getting, I needed to won a piece for myself.

Old Navy Crochet Cross Front Wedges: I was reading one of my favorite blogs, SkinnyPurse.com, and came across a great “summer uniform” story that my friend Andrea wrote.  I’ve been looking for a new black wedge for awhile now and I’m thinking these are exactly what I’ve been looking for.

From Italy, With Love purse: You can seriously find the best things on Etsy.  I’m pretty obsessed with these little change purses – the artist uses real letters from Italy and prints them onto vintage sheets to make these. Obsessed.
