Michael Jackson Clothing Line

During one of the Today Show's daily updates on the death of Michael Jackson and all the drama with it, they investigated the possibility of Jackson creating a clothing like Christian Audigier (the maker of Ed Hardy). Before Jackson's death it was rumored him and Christian Audigier were going to create a "chic" clothing line to premier in stores. Audigier and his designers came up with sketches for t-shirts, jackets, gloves (sparkly ones of course), socks, and other accessories. He was even supposedly going to make umbrellas for the line since MJ was mostly always seen with one. Because of Jackson's death, however, nothing was signed and the Ed Hardy designer can still roll out the line. A Jackson Jacket that would have retailed for $250 (if MJ was alive) would now retail for about $500 because of his death. The good news is Michael Jackson had impeccable style and many of the trends today are copied by him from decades ago. The bad news is Christian Audigier is the designer. Can't win every time.

I Love...Amber Rose

Dear Kanyeezy,

You have blessed many of us with your unique music, beligerence on TV and of course, your LV's. However, you have never given us such a gift as Amber Rose. Ms. Rose has made bald heads popular, her body is off the charts, and her style is crazy (even thouh I know you help her). Nonetheless, America appreciates her, and if I was bi....let's not go there.



As you can see, I love this girl. She is oh so fly, has a bad body and Complex magazine has actually gotten this girl to (ah!) speak! They had an exclusive interview where she talked about her life back in South Philly, her experiences and of course her style:

I always looked up to Slash from Guns N’ Roses. I had every single poster of Slash in my room. It was crazy because I grew up in an all-black neighborhood and everybody I went to school with was black. I was the only biracial looking girl in my school, and Slash was biracial too, he was just a fucking rock star. I always wanted to play the guitar. I’ve tried, but other things came up.

Duh, Modeling! (and being fabulous)

They have a behind the scenes video of her in a cage eating diamonds, smoking a cigarette, and then we actually get to hear her voice. Life Complete.

They're Here! They're Here!

The new cast of America's Next Top Model has been revealed. Yayyyyyy! Am I the only one excited? After a very long anticipated year, my favorite show is back! There were some bumps and bruises along the way (poor Paulina) but I'm very excited for my short girls. The show is going to air Wednesday September 9 at 7pm -- and it's two hours long. Woo hoo! The first guest judge will be the beautiful Chanel Iman and the rest of the season will have some other great judges as well. I'm rootin' for my girl Ashley because I like her name (lol) and she's an artist (one time for my creative people). Check out CW's website to see all the new girls 5'7 and under.

Flip Flops Can Kill

As if we don't have enough problems in the world today, now our flip-flops aren't even safe. Me particularly, I usually never wear flip-flops; I think they are the lazy mans shoes to wear when you don't feel like finding real shoes (lol). So that's exactly when I wear them, when I feel lazy. But you might want to consider wearing them at all after two reporters trotted around NYC wearing flip-flops for four days and labs found a very deadly germ lurking on the rubber -
Staphylococcus aureus. Now, New York just might be one of the grossest cities in the world so that's sort of biased, but germs can spread to any town in any part of the world, they don't discriminate. The deadly germ (we'll abbreviate it SA) can actually kill you if it is seeped into your foot from a cut or scratch. "It can make you pretty sick if it got into a wound and into your blood, where it could attack any of your internal organs," says Dennis Kinney, Ph.D., the manager of the microbiology lab at EMSL Analytical. "If you didn't treat it with antibiotics, you could die from it." The flip-flops that were only worn for four days carried 18,100 bacteria the other pair had 13,900 more than the first (it traveled through many subway lines, Coney Island, and public restrooms). GROSS.

Victoria Beckham At Fashion Week This Fall!

Photo Courtesy Armani

Great News! After spending many years as a singer/model/actress/wife/mother/trendsetter, Victoria Beckham has decided to focus on one career - being a full time designer. After speculations that she was going to replace Paula Abdul on
American Idol, Vicky Beckham finally came out and said she was just going to be a guest judge on one episode. Also, she has declined to renew her contract with Emporio Armani underwear as the face of their brand (so sad, did you see the ad with her and hubby David? mmmmm). Now she is set to focus all her energies on her new line which will appear at New York Fashion Week this September. I love this woman.

America's Next Top Model Cycle 13

Oh America's Next Top Model, you give me everything I need, every single season. And now that you're bringing in the shorties, I'm even more excited. But what would the season be without some uber-fabulous judges to grace the presence of my all time favorite show. I'm not gonna lie, when they announced that the beautiful Paulina Porizkova was getting the boot, I was upset. Tyra is known to have a "diva-tude" so I thought maybe that had something to do with it. But come to find out, it may have just them cutting back (it's okay though, Tyra, I still love you).
Nonetheless, the CW does have enough money to supply us with some hot judges for this season that I'm sure we'll all enjoy (or at least I'll enjoy). First up, my girl Chanel Iman. She's young but that girl has been rockin' the runways HARD during fashion week. Also said to be guest judges are Lauren Conrad (from The Hills) and Kim Kardashian (the ex-girlfriend of my future boyfriend). I'm excited what each of them has to say about the ladies 5'7 and under and what tips Chanel can give them. Can't wait to see us short girls unite on the runway this fall. Click here for the full lineup of guest judges.

Yay For Designer Discounts!

So even though the economy sucks and everyday all we seem to hear about is how bad things are and blah blah blah...I have exciting news to get you, well, excited! Anyone who knows me knows I love designer clothes, shoes, handbags, underwear, everything lol. I love it, can't get enough of the fabrics they use, their attention to detail and who doesn't want to be seen walking around the city in red bottom heels? But, since I'm a poor college student with no real job, it's hard to afford these things.

But low-and-behold! Here comes my knight in shining armor aka great designer discount websites. First there was Net-a-porter. Genius. But then they moved their sale site and made the Outnet, who's having an amazing clearance sale on their website as I type. After that, Gilt Groupe and then Gilt Fuse. I live. And then today was even more great news added on to all of this amazing-ness; Rewind, a discount website brought to us by the lovely makers of Revolve Clothing. 

The site is going to have heavy, deep discounts - we're talking up to 80% off here people - from Revolve's website. They have an extensive list of designer's on their site and hopefully will be adding even more fabulousness to this. I absolutely ecstatic about this guys. Cheap, fabulous clothes. Feel special that I'm sharing my secret's with you ;)

Booties: $50 & Under

I have good news, and bad news. The bad news is, we're still in a recession. The good news is, your closet doesn't have to be affected by it (yayyy!) One of my new favorite fall obsessions are booties; love, love, love them. Can't get enough of them, I want to take them out to dinner. However, booties can be pretty expensive because they are usually uber fabulous. But luckily I'm helping you guys (ladies) out and gracing you with some fabo booties for $50 and under. Enjoy :)

Shoe Patrol - Parking Spots For Women Only

Gangham Station - Seoul, South Korea
Gangham Station - Seoul, South Korea

Seoul, South Korea is creating "high-heel friendly" parking spaces for women drivers in the city. I.love.this.idea. The city has already painted 4,969 pink parking spaces (yes, pink) and plans to paint thousands more private and public parking spaces to be women, and high-heel friendly. The idea came about so that women wouldn't have to walk far from their cars to the mall entrance or wherever their feet take them. The parking space project comes from South Korea's Women Friendly Seoul Project; the city is notoriously known for being "macho" and wants to include women in their thriving city standards. In a way I could see how this could be offensive to women and make you go hm? But on the other hand, anyone that knows me knows I'm kind of lazy (lol). So I would definitely love my very own pink parking space right in the front Tyson's (my favorite mall) so I can walk my 6.5 size foot right on in the front entrance in a matter of seconds. Sounds like a plan to me. What do you guys think?
