Happy New Year

31 Dec

 

Wishing you all a blessed and amazing 2012! Make this year one full of dreams! 

 

PS1 Proenza Schouler Messenger Bag: My Dream Bag

30 Dec

 

I see this amazing piece of leather in my future come 2012! I know…I know…you've all seen this luscious satchel all over the blogosphere but its so yummy! My only dilemma is paying for the crazy price of the bag. At $2000 that's more than I paid for my vintage Chanel bag.  Hmmm……

 

 

Top 10 Worst Fashion Trends for 2011

29 Dec

 

 

1.  Spider Lashes

Please do not try this at home! This trend took on a life of its own with Celebrities running around Hollywood wearing the longest lashes humanly possible. I'm sure glad I never partook in this trend. I would hate for someone to accidently hit me in my eye, mistaking my false lashes for a spider.

2.  Bandage Dress

Hever Leger's bandage dresses took a wrong turn this year. Every fashionistas in town was trying to squeeze into the insanely tight frock. How did this trend even start? Let me guess, an ER nurse was changing after her shift for a hot date and forgot her dress. She probably thought to herself…."let me just grab some ACE bandages and wrap them around my secret parts and voila ….I'm date ready!" So what if I can't breath or move.

3. Harem Pant

Unless you know all the words and dance moves to "2 Legit 2 Quit" you should probably retire those horrid harem pants. Long or short, sequins or not ….it really doesn't matter. These pants make you look like you're carrying an unwanted load.

4. The D-veep Neck Tshirt

This year our beloved Fellas went from bad to worse with trading out the bedazzled Ed Hardy t-shirts for a Deep V neck t shirt. When will they learn that wearing a sucka tight t-shirt doesn't make you look tough or sexy. The only look you're pulling off is that of an extra from Jersey Shore. Fist pump all around!

5. Spiked Heels 

These stilettos are only suitable for war. What Man in his right mind would accompany a woman on a date, rocking these weapons of mass destruction. Men like heels but not ones that can cause them serious pain to the delicate areas of their bodies. Unless they're a freak and well …..let's leave that subject for another post.  

 


 

 

6.  The Sheer Skirt

So much for leaving something to the imagination. Everyone can see what your trying to display or lack there of. Each time I see this skirt I can't help but wonder…. "where's the rest of the Bee Keeper outfit."

 

 

 

 

7.  IceSkate  Heels

Apparently Kristi Yamaguchi and Manholo Blahnik decided to do a shoe collaboration. I love adventurous fashion but this takes the cake. No worries if  you forget to bring your skates when going ice skating. Just jump on the ice with these babies.

8. The Romper

A one piece jumper disguised as an adult onesie. There simply is no way of making this trend look HOT.  You just end up looking like you miss the days of being an infant.

9. Day-Glo Animal Prints

Just say No! Cheetah print and day-glo do not go together. When's the last time you seen a neon spotted Cheetah roaming around Africa.  Unless you wish to be a walking glo stick or one of Snooki's sidekicks, I suggest you leave this trend in 2011.

10. Floral Printed Button-Down Shirt (MEN)

Peter Brady couldn't pull it off in the 70's and you can't pull off in 2011. This trend is BAD!  Fellas, you look like you're wearing your Grandma's table cloth. The only flowers you should have are the ones for your date.

MANSETTER Blog coming 2012

26 Dec

 

Hey Friends! In just a few weeks I will be introducing my new Men's blog: MANSETTER! I've been tossing around the idea of doing a Men's styling blog for awhile. I adore Men's clothing and really want to dedicate an entire blog to it. I'm still working out the kinks but I'm thinking it will be more like a "street style" blog, focusing on what I would like my future Snookums to dress like. Men's fashion with a woman's perspective! Oh and some snazzy fashion tips for your fellas as well.           Stay tuned……

  

 

Unexpected!

24 Dec

 

That's right! I'm single handedly going to bring back the classic Dooney & Bourke. More specifically the vintage classic Dooney & Bourke. Recently, I've taken a rather strong liking to vintage Dooney & Bourke handbags from the late 1980's or early 1990's. I can't explain it!  Other than the fact that I'm REALLY into them. I'm up all hours of the night scouring eBay for these bags, like a groupie at a NBA basketball game. This obsession of mine is so unexpected! The best part. Yes, there's a best part! All three of these lovely leather handbags set me back only $90.00. That's the equivalent to the taxes on one my Louis Vuttion bags. Dooney & Bourke – where have you been all my life?! I will continue to stalk you until I have build my Dooney & Bourke empire. Yes, this is going to happen!
