SHOP IN SPITE OF HURRICANE SANDY

Posted on November 3, 2012

      Hurricane Sandy has impacted the lives of New Yorkers, New Jerseyites, those from Connecticut and others from all over the Northeast. I would also like to take this time to acknowledge those who have been impacted by this Hurricane in Jamaica, Haiti and Cuba as well. After watching the telethon last night which featured Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Steven Tyler, etc. I thought that there had to be a way to donate money online as well. I started searching some of my favorite online stores and here’s a list of a few stores who are donating money to the Red Cross in an attempt to aid in disaster relief… If you’re going to spend money, you might as well spend it on…

BLACKFACE

Posted on November 1, 2009

I can’t decide if I should find the photo above offensive or not. I do not find the nudity offensive, I do not find the hair pulling offensive either. However, what some have found offensive is the fact that the model to the left is painted in “blackface”. Instead of using a dark skinned model, magazines such as V Magazine and French Vogue opted to use a technique called “blackface” instead. This has caused much controversy lately but it turns out that blackface used to be practiced in theaters many years ago. According to npr.org, during the 19th century, blackface entertainment was common. Caucasian actors and actresses would paint themselves dark in order to appear African American. The trend began in 1830, when actors…

Wonderland Magazine is by far the most intriguing magazine I have read in a long, long time. Its editorials are unique and breathtaking. The writing is informative yet not overwhelming and what is perhaps the most impressive about Wonderland Magazine is the fact that the magazine was created only four years ago. Somehow the magazine has been able to feature big time celebrities such as Megan Fox, Julianne Moore and Chace Crawford. Below are some of my favorite pictures from various different issues of Wonderland Magazine. Take a look:Source: wonderlandmagazine.com

Topshop Fall 2009 Still Lookbook

Posted on August 3, 2009

I don’t wear make-up in the summer really. I’ve found that by the time I get dressed everything has melted anyway so I just don’t bother. However, the Fall allows for more dramatic looks and I love that! Here are some inspirations for the upcoming season: Source: Topshop, createthe solutions, elle.com, style.com, revlon.com, fashionista.com

“I don’t know who invented high heels but women owe him a lot”

Posted on July 25, 2009

I don’t know why Marilyn Monroe stated the quote above because who knows if the person who invented the shoe was indeed a male? It could easily have been a woman. Just take a look at the footwear from Ms. Donna Karan below – she is a  brilliant designer. Take a look: Citizens of Humanity I am also intriqued with Citizens of Humanity’s lookbook. The relaxed, must-have-been-inspired-by Erin Wasson feel is great. Take a look: On a different note… is at it again! Take a look: Snake bracelet, $5.00 Family tee, $24.00 These items featured above are available at Marc by Marc Jabobs stores. Also… Most of  the fall footwear from Alloy.com is incredible. I really like Alloy because they always have my size…

Leather + Blue Jeans

Posted on July 23, 2009

I found absolute inspiration from Alexander Wang and from the Fall 2009 pieces from William Rast with this look that I plan on wearing in the Fall along with a red lip, studded boots and statement bracelets. It’s not the real deal but it’ll have to do. Take a look:   It is actually a leather jacket worn under a denim vest and I therefore can wear both pieces seperately which is great! + = Inspiration: Wang William Rast Source: Zimbio.com

Sketched Out

Posted on July 16, 2009

One of the biggest compliments a blogger can receive is when California-based artist, Danny Roberts (pictured above) takes the time to sketch and draw a picture of you (take a look at some of the blogger portraits here). Well, if you can’t be drawn by him, you can now wear something in which he has drawn. At the young age of 23, Mr. Roberts has collaborated with Gwen Stefani for the Harajucku Lovers collection. I have never cared for any Harajuku Lovers designs and then I saw the two bags featured below. I really like these bags! The plaid prints are great and I really like how the illustrations really look like they’re drawn directly on the bags. The designs are just simple and…
