Ciara twitted a pic of herself in some Nina Ricci's. Just because you have the money doesn't mean it was necessarily made for you. Poll time! So, what do you guys think? Is Ciara trying too hard or do you think she can make these Nina Ricci's look haute?
Amber Rose was seen at the New York Screening of "Me And Orson Welles." Her skin simply glows in this D&G gown.I must own a D&G bustier dress. This is a timeless cocktail dress. I adore this champagne color.
1. Zara knee high boots | 2. Dolce Vita Marley | 3. Prada specs | 4. Cole Haan wallet | 5. Nugaard Ring | 6. Cannon Camera SD990 IS | 7. Prada eyeglass case
The Dolce Vita booties were a steal that I picked up from eBay. Practically NEW! I originally fell in love with them months ago and even blogged about it. I also purchased some Prada specs. I always wear contacts because I do not like how look in glasses but these specs are too adorable. They did not come with a case, so I purchased the Prada case separately. I spent less than $45 total for the combo. You're familiar with the Nugaard Ring that I scored through Gilt.com and the Cole Haan wallet I got from eBay. These were some of the items I bought for myself. I don't know about you but I do not believe in a birth day, it's a birth MONTH for me lol.
Marc Jacobs Mercer Satchel
My very first MJ bag and I got a DEAL! Do you hear me. The Mercer was part of the 2007 Resort line. Would you like to know how much? Would you? Are you sure? Promise to keep it between you and I? Promise, lol. Ok, this bag originally retails for $1,095. The beau purchased it at Neiman Marcus Last Call. It was reduced to $492 but they were having a 20% off designer bags and if you opened a NM card you would get an additional 20%. So you do math. YES!!! $295. AHHHH! Nothing like a fabulous find and getting it for a fabulous price! Thanx boo!
The description of this lovely find from TPF, "Soft and supple this gorgeous purple calfskin leather handbag has iconic gold tone hardware and hand-knotted leather handle detailing. Signature gold buckle accents with double top handles and one gold front Marc Jacobs zipper pocket. Interior has one main compartment with an open side purple leather trimmed pocket. It is fully lined. The bottom has protective gold metal hardware feet."
One of the gifts that I received for my birthday was a new laptop. Remember the old one? Well still have not got her fixed, so the beau got me a mini laptop which I will probably exchange for a larger one. I was searching for a chic laptop sleeve and instantly fell in love with these!
It's about to be a Rihanna overload. I like the dress, I'm on the fence with the boots, hate the makeup.
Can my camera hurry up and arrive, so I can post my birthday gifts! I will give you guys a clue...she's purple & fabulous!
Why did I think Jimmy Choo new collection would be showcased at the H&M here in Atlanta. Lol, glad I did not go. I would have been M-A-D! Anyhoot, I did not here a lot of good reviews. Anyone bought a pair? Or went on Saturday? Any stores, please share. I read somewhere that a girl punched another girl at the premiere, lol. You know us women and our shoes.
The last I owned a pair of sneakers, I was 19. Well I still have them but I am not a sneaker girl at ALL but every once in a while, I will see a chic rocking some J's and it makes me reconsider for like 2.5 secs. I guess just one of things that you gotta let go.
...So on Tuesday, Nov. 10th was my birthday. At first I was having anxieties about getting closer to the big 3-0. Yikes! I have left the mid 20's club and have now joined the late 20's. I am not even 40 and thought I was having mid-life crisis. But somehow, some way, my friend Mr. G-O-D reminded me of all the things I have to look forward to. While it is easy for me to worry about the minute details in life, I should focus on the bigger picture. I am a better person than I was last year. I may have gained 3 to 4 more pounds than I wanted instead of losing. I may not be in the career that I anticipated BUT I am definitely on the right track at being the best me that only know how to be. And for that I am grateful.
I will take that with stride and continue this road of improvement. So anyhoot...some of my birthday gifts to myself arrived in the mail. I finally bought a camera!!! Not an SLR like I wanted but a Canon PowerShot SD990. I also bought some OTK flat boots from Zara and a pair of Dolce Vita booties. I will dedicate a post when I get my camera. I am tempted to go to Savannah! Not sure yet. Is anyone planning on hitting up H&M for the launch of Jimmy Choo. I heard there will be ridiculous lines. That does not sound like fun, so I am on the fence.
So, over the past week I've been eBay shopping, or at least trying to. You see ask most eBay addicts, they like to bid on the auction they want seconds before the bid ends. You do that, to lessen the competition and beat out other bidders. I prefer to "Watch" each auction that I want to buy. The annoyance factor, comes when I forget to go back to that auction, minutes before the bid is over. I have missed out on some really good deals because I simply forgot to back to that auction. Better luck next time. Argh!
Vintage Disco Dress with Metallic Puffed Sleeve $14.99 - Ended with no bids
A new Banana Republic Cocoon sweater $22.49 - Ended with 11 bids
Vintage Black Studded Bandage Cut out Dress $0.99 - Ended with 1 bid
Kurt Geiger Red Satin Flats $6.00 - Ended with 5 bids
I just participated in my first Gilt sale. I love going on there but I have never bought anything...close though. I got a black Nugaard cocktail ring that is wrapped in gold wire. I can't wait to get it! My only problem with Gilt is the shipping, $12 to ship a ring seems a bit high. I had a great weekend. I went to a super swanky nail salon by the beau's. He got a massage and I got the deluxe mani & pedi.
Hey guys, so ever since I bought my first Chanel polish on eBay a few months ago I've been hooked. I went on eBay to see if there were any steals. I was shocked to say the least to see several different Chanel polish auctions going for over $100. I understand that it's Chanel. I get it. I get that it's an exclusive buy and it is either sold out or rare find. I get that but seriously $144 for 0.4 ounce bottle of nail polish? Mr. Karl Lagerfeld, this is absurd. Now I can see paying for an exclusive Chanel bag because it can easily be an heirloom. Last for years and years to come. But nail polish that will be gone in 6 months if it lasts that long. I'll pass. I guess my "fashionista" card is pulled for not getting it. Because I don't get it.
I have not seen these Alexander McQueen booties off the runway (quote me if I am wrong). So imagine my excitement when I saw this TwitPic from celebrity stylist June Ambrose. She also posted a video wearing those 12-inch unbearably high platforms when she viewed the collection. Like she would say, "Hauteness!"
The Beckhams were spotted at the Lakers game this weekend. How adorable is this family? Like seriously those boys will be heart breakers (let's hope not though). I love the 'do on the Mrs. I prefer this style over all the other 'dos she has rocked. And those Christian Louboutin Maggie 140 pumps are divine.
I had a conversation with a girlie and she thought I bought most of my finds from the mall.....NO!!!! I do not like malls. The young girls in skimpy clothes who BUY nothing but crowd the stores. The young boys gawking at young girls. The overpriced fashion nos. Yeah, I'll pass. I do most of shopping on eBay. Like tonight, I just won a brand new Cole Haan black leather wallet for $27! I am desperately trying to buy some L.A.M.B. heels. Birthday shopping officially started today!
