To keep you from the Monday blues I have some fun stuff for you to check out. Enjoy, I sure did! OMG I want these tights that Fergie is rocking @ the AMA performance!! 1. Models + High End Fashion Brands? <<--- UM!! What?? talk about branding! I felt like I was going to get in trouble for seeing these NUDE models! But this is nudity without raunchy. Oh, and if that is the site owner in the header graphic .. I need more of that in my life. 2.Running for a cause or just running to run? Either way, I want to run a 5k SOON! <---I used to practice running doing the mentioned formula. It really does help. I did it not because I was lazy, but because…

Fashion Friday 11.20.09: Spotlight on Zoe Saldana

Fashionable
I don't really remember her in anything before Drumline, and honestly, she didn't register on my fashion radar then. but she stayed around. She was in the Terminal with Tom Hanks, Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Pirates of the Carribean w/ my boo Johnny Depp, Vantage Point, and (among other things) most recently Star Trek.She's said that she's sometimes mistaken for Thandie Netwon. Besides them both being thin, I don't see the resemblence. I think she is adorable, and of course I would since she's a Jersey girl! She doesnt' look a day over 25, can you believe she was born in '78? OW! Sexy! I think thigh highs are hella sexy! These shoes are rocking my world. I need these in my life. STAT! That's what I think is…

Fashion Friday 11.20.09 : Shop For A Better World

Fashionable
As I started last week, fashion is so much more than what you wear outside the house. We're continuing that trend this week! Shop for a Better World, is a partnership between Fair Winds Trading, Women of Rwanda and Macys. I know of them because a few years ago I bought y grandmother one of thier lovely hand-woven bowls for Christmas.  These bowls are a lovely piece for a coffee table. I figured she would enjoy it since she has so much crap stuff on  her coffee table. I purchased a Unity bowl for her, which is unfortunately  not available on the Macy's website. They do have some others that are still going to make some wonderful accent pieces in someone's home. Pictured are the "True Unity", "Thousand Hills", and…

Nars 15×15 Launch Event

Fashionable
I got these pics last week, but I wanted to save them for Fashion Friday. Plus I wanted to pay homage to my new Nars Stylo, I freaking LOVE IT!! Using eyeliner has NEVER been easier. I don't have the blue one yet (the one I wanted the most) but I have faith that I may eventually have it. (wink wink). In fact I adore all my Nars products. I love their packaging. Francois Nars (who is very young) celebrated the launch of the 15x15 Project. There were some big names there that I don't know who they were, so I didn't gravitate towards their photos. But the ones I have are interesting.

Fashion Friday: Nov. 13.2009 – Bedding

Fashionable
I LOVE this pintucked diamond pattern. It provides a little bit of texture and a lot of style!  This gold color is equally as intoxicating as the silver Barbara Barry duvet. Best thing about this one: machine washable! The matte Charmeuse should hold up pretty well. This can at Kohl's for $119.99 (half the price of the Barbara Barry!)

Fashion Friday: The 13!!

Fashionable
Fashion is so much more than just what you wear. It's so NOT fashionable to rock the lastest Christian Louboutin's and you go home to Joe's Apartment. Keep your home just as nice as you keep yourself. Today, I want to talk bedding, more specifically DUVET (pronounced "due-vay") covers. Lately I've been obsessed with findng one. It's a great way to make your comforters last, especially if its a white one. Think of a Duvet cover as a pilowcase for your comforter! Get ready, get cozy, and get with it! Barbary Barry Duvet cover is sheek. I adore the colors, the pattern on the front and reverse. It's soft, 100% cotton and it has piping along the edges. It also has hidden buttons so that your comforter stays out of…

Fashion Friday: 11.06.09 Ruched Loving

Fashionable
I've never heard of Cynthia Steffe, but I do love this dress!  I swear I have a similar dress, but it doesn't have quite the detailing as this one. I loved the ruched elastic belt with the metal closures. Mine doesn't look as satiny and the exposed zippers are silver and not gold like this dress.  I would probably wear it exactly how the model is wearing it. I adore the a-line cut of the skirt. I love the oversized fold over collar. My heart is melting I tell you. This dress retails for $335, but once again if you know someone you might catch it for around $125. For more info on the secret sales, feel free to email me :)

Fashion Friday: 11.6.09 Leather is your lover

Fashionable
I want a leather coat in the worst way. Not because its going to keep me warm, but because they are freaking adorable! Take this cropped BCBG Max Azria  number. The green color is absolutely to die for! It has an exposed front zipper and front patch pockets. I am loving that you can see all the buttons and zippers. Gives it a definite rocker/biker look, LOL! this retails for about $598, but if you know somebody who knows about secret sales, you may catch it going for under $250.

Fashion Friday 10.30.09: Halloweenie Style

Fashionable
Finding the perfect Halloween costume is extremely difficult! Last year I knew exactly what I wanted to be. I went to one of the kazillion Halloween stores that pop up on every corner and found it. I wore it 2x. I partied like I never partied on Halloween. My German Barmaid even tried to snuggle up with the resident Dr. Hottie! This year, I am absolutely torn (and not ready to spend $50 on another one time wear *wink wink* outfit).So far, all I have is a red Lolita wig. Aiming for total transformation! This year, I want it to be cute, yet original, and also very affordable. However, as we are the day before, that doesn't seem very necessary. here are a few I've seen and thought stood out…

Fashion Friday: 10.30.09 Jeffrey Campbell

Fashionable
I have never even heard of this person, but this ad made me want to know more. The power of ads is intense. Jeffrey Campbell is apparently a hot, new (or not so new its been like 9 years) Shoe God on the scene who doesn't cost 6 months rent. Peep his websites intro! I don't even like autoplay music, but it intrigued me. Dope Right?

Fashion Friday 10.23.09: Is this High Fashion?

Fashion Friday 10.23.09: Is this High Fashion?

Fashionable
Maybe I'm just not sophisticated enough for high fashion, but what is the appeal on this shoe? Like seriously? It can't be comfortable! I love the blue color, I love the detailing at the top. But the heel and the platform are killing me. First off, they are 2 distinct textiles. What the hell is that, a metal pipe anyway?? I'm so over the heel. And that sucks because I enjoy when heels are different, i.e D2squared 's lightning bolt heel, or even when Madonna wore the shoes with the gun as the heel. These, I'm not feeling. Thoughts?? OH, and they cost hella  lotta money since they are Jil Sander and I saw them on Global14.com with all the other "high fashion" shoes!

Fashion Friday : Boots! (again!)

Fashionable
Is there a such thing as too much of a good thing? I realized today I love fall, simply because I love all the different boots! I love leather and I love suede. I enjoy nubuck and canvas. I want knee high boots, but settle for calve length. I just love boots! These boots are cute, they are called Cashmere!  They are a combination of leather and sweater material. The only draw back is that I like a sturdier heel than the stiletto. I prefer the heel to be a little more stacked, but everything else is great! The heel is a fantastic 4 1/2 inches and the toe is squared off. I also love the buckles over the sweater material. These can be found at Bakers for 99.95. Affordable…
