Due to the overwhelming popularity of the first installation of MySpace Muse, weÂ're kicking off 2007 with another stylist babe whoÂ's also assuredly on (fashion) point. It is with great pleasure that we present to you Rebecca, 19, a Laurel Canyon-dwelling, UCLA art school attending girl with flair. She gives great answer, so donÂ't miss out reading about all that she loves and hates in fashion and Los Angeles proper. 1. What handbag are you wearing right now?
IÂ've been switching between a yellow Balenciaga motorcycle bag and a vintage brown Bottega that belonged to my dear mother. Both are in dire need of repair.
2. What are you currently coveting?
Twin Peaks dvds, Chloe patent oxfords, insects in glass, and Katy Rodriguez dresses from Resurrection,
3. Favorite Bands?
Kate Bush, Stevie Nicks, Brother Reade, Simon Dawes, T.I., Three 6 Mafia, Talking Heads, Cat Stevens, The Like, and Phoenix.
4. Where do you shop?*
As a starving college student I donÂ't shop as much as IÂ'd like but when opportunity permits, I shop at Resurrection, Necromance, Madison, Playclothes, Milk, The Way We Wore, White Trash Charms, Decades, Slow, and Forever 21.

5. Favorite online stores? IÂ'm not very talented with the Â"interweb,Â" but I do like to search eBay every now and then. IÂ've been known to frequent the iTunes store, too, where you can get Law and Order: SVU episodes.
6. What fashion magazines do you read?
W, Vogue, Blackbook, WWD, and Teen Vogue (because IÂ'm still a teenager).
7. What trends do you love?
I love sweeeet mini dresses. I refuse to accept that itÂ's extremely cold outside, so I have now added tights. The look is mini dresses, tights, and platforms.
8. What trends do you hate?
I hate big sunglasses, purposefully mismatched outfits, and underage drinking.
9. Favorite things to do with your free time?*
When I gather the energy to leave the house, I spend all my time hanging out with my best friend Spencer. We enjoy the following activities including, but not limited to: seeing movies at the ArcLight, walking our dogs on Runyon, karaoke, going to the Natural History Museum, TeddyÂ's and Hyde, The Dime, occasionally seeing shows at the Troubadour, being awesome, reading magazines at Borders, eating at El Compadre, Magnolia, Figaro, Ita-Cho, La Buca, Larchmont Village Wine, Spirits & Cheese, Damiano Mr. Pizza, and Taco Bell. Please take notice of the obscene amount of space I just devoted to restaurants.

My friend SpencerÂ's forest green, suede Hermes boots.
11. What are your shoes for day?
White Jack Purcells.
12. Who are your style icons?
These may be obvious answers but my icons include Jane Birkin, Patti Smith and Winona Ryder in the 90Â's.

Ehh, I dont really read blogs, but it would be a lie to say I didnÂ't stop by perezhilton every other day. The man is quite a comic.
