When did Juicy Couture mount a campaign to take over the fashion universe?

I remember way back when…there was this super wide deep V-neck tee shirt (and some cute denim mini skirts in dyed to match colors, which didn’t match) which was really cute, fun, and kind of sexy but with sufficient coverage.

Now, there’s…Well, what isn’t there? Read the rest of this entry »

Reality Check

Posted on 29 Oct 2012 In: Rosalie

I’m kicking myself that I stopped watching Queer Eye, and so had to be told about Project Runway by a friend. Hands down, this is the best reality show this season, well, I still love Amazing Race, so maybe it’s the best reality show based in one city. Read the rest of this entry »

Snakeskin is looking to be pretty hot for Spring. This bag from Cole Haan is really cute, and similar to a bag by YSL for Spring without looking like a rip-off. Read the rest of this entry »

Not so perky in Pucci

Posted on 27 Jun 2012 In: Aurora D'Paradiso

I thought it was sweet of The Donald and Melania to invite one of Katie Couric’s daughters to their wedding. Then I realized, teenagers have more lines on their faces, not to mention mobility. Read the rest of this entry »

Wedding Reception

Posted on 23 Jun 2012 In: Wedding

Don’t plan your wedding for the most popular months, April to September, and you might find that rates for reception venues are lower during the autumn and winter.

Instead of using a hotel or restaurant for the reception, consider hiring something like a church hall. If you do, check on the facilities.

Is there a kitchen?
Is there a stove for heating food?
Are seats included in the price and are there enough for all the guests?
Are tables also included and are there enough?
Are there any special conditions of use attached to the hall? Read the rest of this entry »

Another Floral Hobo

Posted on 30 Mar 2012 In: Bags

I saw this in the window of a local boutique, but in white, and it made me think of the Gucci one I posted about here. You can’t tell from the picture, but it’s also beaded, and sells for $310. Read the rest of this entry »

L’artisan Fleur d’Oranger

Posted on 12 Mar 2012 In: Christina Wu

L'artisan Fleur d'Oranger
I should have known better than to try this. Ah well.

Sunny, breezy orange blossom has long been one of my favorite floral notes. However, it often verges on too heady, as in Serge Lutens’ Fleurs d’Oranger, a gorgeously crafted fragrance that approaches but misses perfection on my skin, or Caron’s Narcisse Blanc, which is too sweet and cloying for my taste. In other compositions, it’s blandly cheerful and soapy, as with Jo Malone’s version. I adore Caron’s decadent Narcisse Noir, where orange blossom becomes sultry when paired with incense, but that is a different animal altogether. L’artisan Fleur d’Oranger very fashion parfum on this season. I didn’t even realize that I had been craving a fragrance which captured the purity and delightful, girlish innocence of orange blossoms until I tried L’artisan’s recently released Fleur d’Oranger. According to L’artisan’s website and various sales assistants, there was a particularly fine crop of orange blossoms in Tunisia, and they were hand-picked in order to create this limited edition fragrance. Other notes include petit grain and beeswax. Read the rest of this entry »

Serge Lutens Borneo 1834

serge lutens borneo 1834
Thierry Mugler’s infamous Angel is one of the most toxic fragrances I’ve ever had the misfortune of trying. I’ve heard about how lovely it can be on other people, how it supposedly evokes caramel and chocolate and vanilla and yummy foody goodness.I allow that this may be true on others’ skin, although I not yet found Angel pleasant when involuntarily confronted with passersby who wore it.

In search of a new Hair Spray

Posted on 12 Mar 2012 In: Niteline

Hair Spray
I am very annoyed!

I have used Sebastian Shaper Zero G Hair Spray for about 7 years now, and all of a sudden…poof…they changed it. Not only did they change the can and spray design, but the formula as well.

The spray nozzle used to be smaller, giving a more exact and concentrated spray. Now the nozzle is that of the regular Shaper Hair Sprays, giving more of an all over mist. And the smell is absolutely horrible. About ten minutes after spraying, I get the worse tingling and smell in my nostrils – yuck! I brought the can back to CVS, thinking I had a bad can, but the new can is the same. So bad, that I actually wore a painters mask over my mouth and nose so I wouldn’t inhale as much. I realized this was ridiculous, and I finally threw the can away. Read the rest of this entry »
