Stingray & Lizard Cuffs

I’m not usually a bracelet girl, however I do wear a watch everyday; things on my wrists get on my nerves lol. But after seeing these cuffs made by Texas native Leigh Navarro, I may want to invest in some. The big trend this season was bangles stacked high but I just couldn’t get with it. But I like how these cuff can stand on their own. The brand Leighelena makes a wide array of cuffs in different materials and prints such as black stingray and grey lizard, with either silver or gold fastenings. What do you guys think?

$90 at shopmilk.com

If you're looking for a cute cuff on a budget here are some ones I found for under $50.

Forever 21 New Beauty Line

Forever 21 has launched their new beauty product line, love & beauty, which is fully stocked at 135 locations while partially stocked at the remaining 305 locations. The line consists of beauty products for lips, eyes, face, nails, fragrance, and tools and accessories such as cosmetic bags, tweezers and makeup brushes with nothing over $10. You also can purchase the products on Forever21.com. While I don’t wear that much makeup and I’m definitely not makeup savvy, I’m not sure if I would wear Forever 21 makeup? I think the prices are great but I’m just curious about the quality. Forever 21 spokeswoman Kristin Nagle stated, “We are using a lot of the vendors that are making prestige cosmetics. It is the same quality as prestige vendors, but at Forever 21 prices.” So maybe the quality is there? Would you buy Forever 21 makeup or other beauty products?

Elle Has A New Fashion Director

One of my favorite magazines Elle, who has the lovely Sarah Jessica Parker on the cover this month, finally has a new fashion director to replace Nina Garcia. Garcia left Elle April 2008 and is now the fashion director at Marie Claire as well as one of the regular judges on Project Runway. The new fashion director, Alexis Bryan Morgan, will start her job at Elle in January after finishing up at Vanity Fair as their executive fashion editor. I wonder if she’s going to be on the next season of The City hating Olivia as much as Erin does? lol.

Wanna Be The Next Chanel Iman? I Do!

Ford Models is looking for the next big supermodel. They are having their Ford Supermodel of the World contest to find the next Chanel Iman (who entered the contest a few seasons ago – look at her now!). They literally search all over the world to find the freshest faces and are going to be in LA and NYC this Saturday to find their US candidate. The winner of the US search gets to go to Brazil (ahhh Jealous!) and compete for a contract worth $250,000. It seems like a wonderful opportunity for aspiring models.

OMG At These Shoes

I DIE. This is an early picture of Louis Goldin’s Spring 2010 footwear collection for Topshop. I can’t wait until these come out, they are effin hot.

Lady Gaga On Gossip Girl

So Lady Gaga performed "Bad Romance" on Gossip Girl last night. I don’t even watch that show but I TiVoed it just for the Gaga performance (can’t you tell I’m a tad bit obsessed with her?). She wore the longest dress ever and, of course, had the nipple pasties on to show the world she does not give a damn. The performance wasn’t that long and engaging and it definitely was nothing like the video but it was just enough Gaga for me. Thanks Gossip Girl.

Oooh Look At My New Necklace

So this weekend I was extremely bored so I decided to go shopping. There are basically no good stores here in Tally so I usually just go thrift and vintage shopping while I'm down here. Look at this necklace I got from Sick Boy Vintage...

It was only $18.99 and one of the employees actually made the necklace herself. She said the fringe was from the 1970s and she hand dyed it herself. The actual chain was from the 1960s...or 20s? I forget lol. But I loved it. If you're in Tally check out Sick Boy Vintage for a lot of great items or if you're not go to their website to buy some of their items.

Design Your Own Shoes!

So now that people have completely lost their mind over the Jimmy Choo’s for H&M and bought every single pair in the store, at least it’s over. And if you missed out on the grand opening, don’t fret, you could possibly design your own shoes! Steve Madden and Zappo’s have teamed up and created a shoe design contest named “Sole Search.” Basically, each (wannabe) designer will create an original design either from scratch, using the downloadable Steve Madden template, or with the Brinkfish Entry Editor The three best will be flown to NYC to pitch their ideas to Mr. Madden himself. Click here to try your designing skills and submit it online. Good luck!

Let's Rip Some Jeans

Personally, I would describe my style as tomboy chic. Many times I like throwing on a tshirt with cute jeans and either flats (when I’m on campus, these Tallahassee hills aren’t a joke) or heels. I don’t like to look like a complete boy because, simply, I like being a girl. But one trend I think can incorporate that boyish look with a little girly twist is distressed/ripped jeans.

They definitely have that macho appeal while also being sexy, especially if paired with cute heels. Here are some cute ripped jeans you might like.

I Love...Cardigans

One of the things I love most about fall/winter are the fall/winter clothes. I love wearing my boots, long sleeve shirts and throwing on a cardigan to top off the outfit. The one I have on is from Forever 21, I got it a few seasons ago.

It’s hard being in Florida with their faux winter and me wanting to wear my winter clothes. But I usually have the excuse, “it’s November, it should be cold so I’m wearing what I want.” Here are some cute cardi’s I found all under $50.

Kimora Lee Simmons New Judge On ANTM

Oh Shoot. One of my favorite shows is getting its act together. Kimora Lee Simmons is supposedly going to be the new judge on the next season of America’s Next Top Model. If you remember she was a judge on the very first season of ANTM but I’m assuming was fired. Now she’ll be back helping Tyra pick the season 14 winner. Also, Miss J is said to be going back to being just the runway coach instead of a judge. Supposedly Vogue Editor, Andre Leon Tally will be taking his seat. I guess we’ll see next season. Woo hoo!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

So I go to school in the most tropical place in America, Florida. And this week hurricane Ida decided she wanted to bless us with her presence. I’m from the northeast so I’m not use to psychotic downpours of rain and wind that literally blows me off my feet (sheesh I only weigh like 100 lbs). But I figured since I’m here I’d better get use to it. One thing I never really needed to buy back at home were rainboots. But since in Florida it’ll rain even when it’s 100 degrees and the sun is out, I thought I should invest.

My grandmother bought me these cute Juicy Couture rainboots last year at Bloomingdales. They’ve been very helpful in my struggle to get to class without looking like a wet dog. Here are some other rainboots I thought were cute and you might like.

Lady Gaga In Vogue

So everyone knows I’m obsessed with Lady Gaga right? Okay well my life got a little better this week (it was already going great thanks for asking) because she’s in an editorial spread for the December issue of Vogue. The spread was shot by Annie Leibovitz and was inspired by the story of Hansel and Gretel. I believe she’s the witch in the story, looking as crazy and fierce as ever. I love this Lady.

Ballet Flats For Under $50!

One of the things I am obsessed with is shoes. I love heels, boots, my converses, everything. But one type of shoe I seem to never have enough of are ballet flats. Every time I buy them they just end up disappearing into the depths of my closet. This summer I bought a pair of Steve Madden black ballet flats to wear during my internship at Glamour, and by the end of the internship, I literally had holes where my toes should be. Needless to say, I need to keep refilling stock. I think they’re great to have if you live in a city because you can just throw them in your bag and change into them when needed. And you can put them with any outfit. You’ll especially need them if you work/intern in the fashion industry because you are literally running around all day. Here are some cute flats I liked that are all under $50.

Pakistan's First Fashion Week

Pakistan had its first Fashion Week that launched last week amongst security concerns and the Taliban to the north. The four-day event was rescheduled two times because of security fears but was nevertheless a successful event. No foreign buyers or designers were invited because of security measures but fashions were a mix of couture and ready-to-wear. “Many designers made reference to the turmoil, reflecting the contradictions and tensions coursing through this society,” according to the AP. “Some women strode the catwalk in vicious spiked bracelets and body armor. Others had their heads covered, burqa-style, but with shoulders — and tattoos — exposed. Male models wore long, Islamic robes as well as shorts and sequined T-shirts.”

The show took place in Karachi, the largest most cosmopolitan city in the country, at a five star hotel next door to the American consulate. The location is only two hours by plane ride for al-Qaida and Taliban. Nevertheless, the CEO of Fashion Pakistan Week, Ayesha Tammy Haq, was optimistic. “This is our gesture of defiance to the Taliban…there is a terrible problem of militancy and political upheaval ... but that doesn't mean that the country shuts down. That doesn't mean that business comes to a halt."

The fashions definitely showed the spirit and style of Pakistan, I think they were absolutely beautiful. Click here to see more designs from their fashion week.

I Still Love Plaid

I’ve come to notice that in my daily life, I seem to wear plaid at least once a week. And good news for me, the trend hasn’t gone out yet. Yay! I think plaid can be worn soo many different ways: shirts, jackets, scarves, I even had plaid leggings (true story). But I definitely think it is a trend that isn’t going out anytime soon. Here are some plaids I thought looked great for girls and guys.

The Boyfriend Jean

One of the trends I’m still loving is boyfriend jeans. On the day’s I feel like a complete fatty and don’t want to wear tight jeans, I always throw on my trusty Seven For All Mankind boyfriend jeans that can be dressed up or down. Here are a cute pair by Calypso for $225.

You can wear it with a fitted shirt and some cute heels to give it a more girly look. Or you can use their name literally and look like your boyfriend with a baggier shirt and some flats. Either way I think they are comfy and very cute. Here are some pairs I thought looked great.

Also here are some items you could compliment your boyfriend jeans with.

Trend: Statement Necklaces

Every time I go out, I always complain about not having any good jewelry. And it’s true, I need a serious upgrade in the accessories department of my wardrobe. One of the biggest trends this season and continuing into next season is the statement necklace. Look at this little number I found on bebe.com for $39.

I love how you can wear a simple outfit and hook it up with a huge necklace and, there ya go, outfit complete. Check out some of the other necklaces I found you might like.

Top 10 Finalist For Vickie's Secret Angel

Victoria’s Secret has picked their top ten finalist in their nationwide search for the next “Angel.” The models are aged 18-25 and are going to be put through an “Angel Bootcamp” to get them ready for the show. They will have to do things such as “"a series of challenges where the contestants will show their photogenic qualities, prove their abilities as a spokesmodel, show off their red carpet star quality and radiate charisma while walking a runway in lingerie,” according to their press release. You’ll be able to see all this on VSAllAccess.com and CBS.com because we, yes us America, will be judging these chicas starting November 9. Yup, we’re picking the angel who will walk the runway on December 1 on CBS. I watch a lot of America’s Next Top Model, hopefully I can make my best educated guess on who I think should be a Vickie’s model?

Michelle Obama & Rihanna Have Glamour Covers!

My day just became great. As I was looking through my favorite magazine’s website, Glamour.com, I saw that not only will Michelle Obama be on the cover of the December issue, but Rihanna will have her own cover as well. Rihanna is one of my favorite celebrity style people and I love seeing her in a picture – she always looks amazing. Not only that, but she was nominated as a Woman of the Year by Glamour and breaks her silence about what happened to her that night with Chris Brown. I really don’t have an opinion on that, because it’s not my business, but I’d love to see what she has to say and see some of the photos Glamour took of her for the issue. (as you can see I’m more concerned about her outfits than the issue-at-hand lol). Well anyways, hooray for my girl Rihanna! I hope she’s doing better nowadays. To see the interview, go to Glamour.com.

I Love...Christian Siriano

Chrisitian Siriano is working on his next fall line, and if you saw his Spring 2010, it’s sure to be a good one. He says that it will be “very dark – that’s the only thing we’re going with right now.” That seems to be a recurring trend each fall: dark, neutral colors. “It’s very gothic, kind of like a swamp, but we wanted it to be really feminine.” Personally, I don’t want to be wearing anything swamp-ish (mostly because I go to Florida State, booo Gators), but if Christian Siriano says it’s going to be good, I believe him.

Siriano is also busy with a spinoff reality show for Bravo. Um, why am I just finding out about this? But the show, which is untitled for now, is said to follow him during the creation of his spring 2010 and fall 2010 lines. He states, “it’s very like The September Issue, very Valentino [The Last Emperor]. We want it to be as real as possible.” Well, if it’s anything like those, count me in. He continues, “I think it’s best to be as normal as possible, and luckily, I just happen to be entertaining already.” The show is said to be documentary-style and feature him being “serious” and even talking to the camera. I love this guy.
