The VMA’s (Video Music Awards) were rocking or so I heard because I haven’t had time to watch them as of yet. I did however make the time to see who was voted best and worst dressed. The first up is engaged couple Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose who let her baby bump show through her lace. The next up is Virginia finest Chris Brown who is decked to the tee and he cleans up well!
So of course behind every good man is a good woman. The next up for best-dressed is Ri-Ri in her white frock; she proved that simple is still in style and that white can be worn after Labor Day! Okay Miley Cyrus looks so good with her new haircut she is totally owning it and it comes through in her fashion picks.
Now for the worst dressed and first up is my girl Nicky Minaj who always seems to land on the worst dressed list but let me tell you she has a bad shape on her! I think they mad at the velvet. The next up is Ne-Yo who they argued wore clothes that were out dated. Well I beg to differ the fatigues were way cool. Now Alicia Keys could have done better. I know the crowd wanted to see more of her curves but she’s un-predictable. Now last but not least is Tyga and he landed on this list for so many reasons.

I was flipping through the new In Style magazine checking out the trends for the fall, and honestly I was tired of the same old- same old. I was looking for some trends that really popped not anything classic but something fresh; something we needed! So I turned passed Gucci, Chanel and Calvin Klein but when I ran into the be-jeweled trends that are hitting the streets Lanvin did it on them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets take a look!
The most important thing about jewels is how to wear your hair! The sleek look is what you have to wear according to In Style magazine. Do not, I repeat; do not overdue the accessories. Too many accessories with this dress would be overkill! Lol! So ladies season and holidays are upon us and these looks are easy to create at home so DIY or hit the stores! Until next time XOXOXOXO! Oh shop Lanvin at http://www.lanvin.com/e-lanvin/INT/.
Hey how is everybody’s summer going?? It’s been real for me over here. I have been missing you all!!
“It was certainly a story of girl meets boy at Chanel. This story is all about what would happen if Coco Chanel met James Dean…Coco always borrowed from the boys. She took their jackets, and made them into uniforms for women. ” Karl Lagerfield.
Three words to describe this collection edge, edge and more edge!! This line is grungy and it sends a clear message “Do not Mess with me, I’m a bad Girl!! See back in Chanels’ time there was a lot going on. The war was going on and designers used their clothing to display messages and while doing that it created an image for their brand.
What Lagerfield is doing is just transforming what Chanel had layed the ground work for. What I am trying to say is, fashion is a revolving circle. You’ve heard of it; the fashion cycle. So ladies go grab your leotards and fish net stockings and Let’s Rock out with our Cock Out!!
You have seen a lot of stars rock the quilted Chanel bag and I have been loving it since its graced the arms of some of our most well-known stars like the “Toya Wright” and several housewives for example the HOT Heather Dubrow. The collection is not cheap but I have some good news; Karl Lagerfield is coming out with his own line. The t-shirts are going to be $65 and under I believe! Can someone say yaaaaaaay! I know some of you want some links; I will post some next time!!

Christian Siriano stole our hearts during the fourth season of Project Runway and he hasn’t stop doing it since. This is an amazing designer you guys whos clothes are compared to costumes which he disagrees with. The former ballet students line sure twinkled my toes! His spring, fall and winter collection have some practical pieces that caught my eye and sparked my interest! Also this mastermind has a line at Payless shoesource where you can buy his shoe brand for $30.00 or less I will picture a white flat and a cute wedge below. Until next time my loves!!
After all there is something about a wedding-gown prettier than any other gown in the world. – Donald William Jerold
I love weddings! I cry at them I think because of the hard work and effort it takes to plan it and us women pull it off so effortlessly. Picking the right dress I think is so hard for a woman but an impeccable designer can make it all worth the trouble. The first designer that pops in my mind is none other than the charming Vera Wang. Her wedding line is so Glam to say the least.

Her line is sold at David’s Bridal and is not too overpriced. These dresses are just the tip of the iceberg! Check out her line at verawang.com! What are you all’s opinion on the wedding gown designers? Best? Worst?
I don’t know who invented high heels, but all woman owe him a lot.-Marilyn Monroe

Well, Marilyn (RIP) with all her beauty didn’t have time to do her homework; but I did. High heels are dated way back to 4000 BC. The most talked about high heel was at the wedding of Italian born Catherine de Medici to the Duke of Orleans in France. However, the talented Leonardo da Vinci is rumored to have invented the high heel. Here are a few of my favorite heels starting out with the Dior sandal at the top which you can get at www.dior.com. I love the Gucci sandal because of the sexy chain which you can go to www.gucci.com of course and purchase it.

Now, I promised an affordable shoe that’s Beyond and affordable too so I was rummaging around and found this shoe which is the perfectly named “Cat” shoe…Meoooow! It’s the neutral shoe shown at the top and the bottom. This shoe would drive any outfit up to the next level! It’s by our favorite fashionable blonde Jessica Simpson and it can be bought at www.jessicasimpson.com for $110.00.
Now I had to throw up these Manolo Blahniks’ just because…dreams do come true LOL! I love the aqua stones and the shimmer gold just makes it pop even more. You can find it under new arrivals at www.neimanmarcus.com. Now ladies and gentleman what do you think makes up a good high heel!? Happy shoe shopping!!
“It’s all a game with new rules every season.”-Stefanno Gabbana
It’s an accessory type of Friday if you ask me; so I wanted to over-do it a little. I was recently reading up on these two fashionable fellers Stefanno and Domenico in a Bazaar magazine and they have inspired me to write about their clothing line for spring/summer 2012. So, Stefanno Gabbana and Domenico Dolce have been designing from Italy since 1982 where they met at a mutual fashion house.
They started out with a leotard line and now it has spiralled into a monstrous fashion house that brought in over 600 million dollars in 2003 alone. They state that the Italian feast encouraged this line with fruits and veggies appearing in a lot of the material. This line is Everything (the website will take your breath away) so let’s see some of my faves…
