Oh man, I love these bags. Normally Alexander McQueen is not my designer of choice. His stuff is a little too racy & dramatic for my taste~ but he truly hit it out of the ballpark with these two bags! I love the complexity and texture that the zippers & pockets add to these simple shaped bags. Plus the choice of black and electric blue leather complete the entire design. Satchels are a big hit this season, so the edgy design of McQueen’s latest design will truly blow all consumers out of the water.
Great job. I would personally pick the electric blue bags in both, but to each their own =) I realize not everyone loves bright colors the way i do!
You can find these bags at Saks Fifth Ave
Known for her figure and sex appeal~ this singer is turning heads with her new Guess Ads in Korea.
Back in Junior High, I was obsessed with her group Fin.K.L (Fine Killing Liberty). Remember them?? Yes the group’s name was lame, but the girls were cute. They each had their own roles, the same way the spice girls each assumed one persona. The “sexy” one was Hyori and she’s by far the most famous of the group when they split in 2002. Her jean ads are below…
oh man…I have resigned myself today that I will buy NOTHING and I will only window shop. Here’s a sale I loved but am being strong about JUST LOOKING. Gilt was having a lovely sale and I kept reminding myself that I the economy was going through a devastating recession and my company had implemented a furlough until this summer. No shopping Esther. No shopping. NO SHOPPING!
Unfortunately, after clicking through the site and seeing all the beautiful cuts, designs and items available to “add” to my lonely cart…I had to distract myself. THEREFORE, I am tell you (the world) what I would have LOVED to buy, but was strong enough not too. LOL Am I strong? HELL YEA. Am I smart to save money? DAMN EFFING STRAIGHT. Will I crack tomorrow? most likely… =T
Here are my top picks from the Thread Social Sample Sale…
I’m going through a strange mustard yellow phase and love the ruffles since it makes my bust look…uh…”enhanced” without trying =P Sorry boys…it’s all a fashion illusion!
Since I saw her on TROY next to Brad Pitt…I have been a huge fan of Rose Byrne. Her beauty and style is always elegant, chic and feminie. Although she could show her figure more (the dress on the far left…YUCK)… she still is a burnette bombshell!
I get to work at the ungodly hour of 7am. Quite torturous actually. But my company is generous enough to let me take classes and accommodate to a flexible schedule so that I may pursue my innermost dreams and passions. The real kicker? The government isn’t so supportive. California raised it’s public school fees by over 30%!! Can you believe that? So the thousand students fighting their way into 1 or 2 30 student classes is more difficult than trying to get hit by lightning in a thunderstorm covered in wire hangers and foil.
ANYWAYYY, back to fashion… so as I ate my leftover subway sandwich for breakfast, I decided to take a mini-break and check out ruelala.com for their morning 8am sample sales. What do I find? French Connection is having a giant blow out sale! Now normally I would not be so easily tempted but I saw these two dresses that were GORGEOUS! Fun, flirty, girlie… PLUS if you know anything about me~ you know I am obsessed with short tube dresses paired with sky-high heels and chunky jewelry!
I quickly dropped my sandwhich and tried to purchase the navy blue dress on the left, but the 4s and 6s were sold out. BLAST! So i even vied for a size 8. SOLD! size 10? SOLD! Everytime I clicked on the available size, the cart would say EMPTY =( SO FRUSTRATING!
Eventually the Navy Blue beauties were all sold out so I made my way to the sunshine yellow dresses. Same story. size 4, SOLD. size 6, SOLD. Size 8? SOLD! UGHH eventually I ended up buying the size 10 for $49!! Originally priced at $169 =)
OMG, these beauties are truly my new obsessions! I can’t explain it, but I love the edgy leather paired with studs as a delicate bracelet around your wrists. Moreover, for me, the bracelest and wraps have to be long enough to wrap several times OR I would recommend buying a few and wearing them together.
Ok…so perhaps it’s the media and fashion industry shoving the whole sequin/glitter epidemic down my throat and into my closest…but I am currently OBSESSED with this new fad. Yes, there’s a strong possibility that I could be THAT girl at the club who looks like a disco ball and lights up the room (er..reflects the light in the room). HOWEVER, at the moment…i’m milking it for all it’s worth! I’m sure this trend only comes once every 30 years and well…you just can’t pull off sequins the same way at 55. *shrug * hard, stone cold truth right?
So here is my ode to all that glitters…
He’s not such a d-bag after all… Apparently he disagreed with Heidi getting more surgery, but felt as though he couldn’t force her hand. I do admire his respect towards his wife, but at the same time~ he should have taken her straight to a therapist. If a man REALLLY loved his wife, he wouldn’t give her the freedom to act on crazy insecurities.
Here’s what Spencer had to say… (from Bricksandstones.com)
Spencer Pratt says he does not agree with his wife Heidi Montag’s decision to change her face but he stands by her decision!
“Anytime I hinted that it might be a little much or if I just asked if she was sure, I even felt like I was crossing lines. I’m not in charge of what she does with any part of her body. I’m her husband – not her owner,” Pratt says.
“But everyone sees themselves differently when they look in the mirror,” the Hills star explains. “Nobody truly understands how she feels except her. I may not be okay with things, but it’s not my call.”
Montag, 23, says she appreciates Pratt’s support.
“At the end of the day we do share a same opinion: It’s my body and I need to feel comfortable as a woman, as a person, and my inner beauty is always there and that’s what’s most important,” she says. “His support has really been a lot and made such a difference. I couldn’t ask for more.”
Montag had 10 cosmetic procedures done in one day.
Diane has such a regal look abotu her. It’s gorgeous. This was a brilliant color/dress choice for her. Classic.
O.M.G. i LOVE this bag! I love the color, style, material and fact that this purse is versatile!
They’re Back in New York!!
I cannot even express just how much I adore Heidi Klum or this fabulous show. Watching the creativity and ingenuity from the designers is inspiring and very jaw-dropping. What’s even more fun is getting to see the designer’s line sky rocket into mainstream society after the show. Last Year I saw three collections in boutiques and on the runway from past season designers. It was awesome. I randomly got invites to store opening, FIDM fashion shows that were over flowing with champagne and hors dourves. Oh LA…I love the glamour.
Anyway, Can’t wait to see this new season and all the guest celebrity judges =P!
My DREAAAM closet!!! oh man…any ideas on how to get rich quick?
Growing up, my mom was the most amazing seamstress/tailor. She used to make a majority of my outfits and buy matching hair clips and shoes. Later in life, when I bought designer jeans, dress pants for work…absolutely ANYTHING really…my mom tailored it to my body. I LOVED IT. Having a mom who could sew anything and everything made my life so much easier that I totally took her for granted. After I moved out into my own apartment, finding time to sit with her and get my clothes altered were almost impossible.
The Solution? My own sewing machine. Although this Hello Kitty one is GORGEOUS, mine is a Singer. It was my mom’s first sewing machine when she immigrated to America and now…it’s MY first sewing machine =) Awesome! I love the legacy that this machine holds and all the beautiful clothes it made for me as a child.
Now, I’m starting my own sewing story by starting off with curtains. I have four curtains in my room and two on my wardrobe. My first goal is to tailor the bottoms and get used to the vibrations and routes of the machine. After warming up with that, my next goal is to sew some comfy black pajama sweats for Markel. Eventually I would love to sew my own dresses and clothes for my four kids =P Just like my mama did for us.
Wish me luck guys. It’ll be quite a feat!
This is my current OBSESSION! I love love love this ring. I think out of jewelry~ rings and earrings are my favorite. They’re the two things that instantly attract my eye and pull an outfit together.
With the cold winter, I have been only thinking about what will keep me warm! Recently, I’ve been favoring Leggings (liquid, sequin, lace, ribboned, zip, you name it!) and long tunics with cardigans on top, scarves and a pair of tall boots to complete the look. My bag of choice? a cross-body leather bag in turquoise. ahh comfortable clothes are amazing~~
But with the sun creeping out in LA and the weather fairly warm…I’ve been thinking about Date Night outfits! My Bs and I have been discussing a posh girls night out in hollywood and I’ve been getting excited about all the wonderful things i’ll be able to wear now!
In honor of the first GNO outing…and my first since the winter… I want something LOUD and fun. Some of my thoughts…
But in light of the recession and my “pay back loans” mode…here are some cheaper alternatives…
Wow… Here are pictures from her new People Cover…
