Yes We Carve!

Obamamania at it's finest!!! As I was perusing other blogs, I came across, and I am speechless. You know the support for OBAMA has reached new heights when there is a Halloween website dedicated to Obama pumpkin carvings; it is just confirmation of the positive impact that he has made on America. Happy Carving!!!! PLEASE VOTE ON TUES. 11/4/O8!!!

Fashion and Movies: The Devil Wears Prada

Movie Billboard

Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in character and looking fab!

The Dream Team of Runway magazine

From time to time, I will post on fashionable movies. I revel in movies whose main focus is on fashion. In" The Devil Wears Prada", the fashion was incredible. Meryl Streep played Miranda Priestly, who was the editor-in-chief at Runway magazine, think Anna Wintour of Vogue. Anyhoo, her wardrode was amazing and of course most pieces were Prada and from the Donna Karan archives. Miranda dressed with confidence!! Anne Hathaway played Andrea Sachs, the personal assistant to Miranda. Andrea had a fashion makeover with the help of Nigel, the art director at Runway, played by Stanley Tucci; it was indeed needed because her wardrobe was so blah....but one of the perks of the job was borrowing fabulous designs and accessories such as Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and Calvin Klein.

Diamonds Are A Girl's Bestfriend

I'm such a girly girl; so I love diamonds and crystals because they are gorgeous yet simplistic...such as diamond stud earrings. But what about diamond encrusted gowns and dresses?? They are gorgeous as well but remember to keep jewelry to a minimum. Check out these lovely ladies in their embellished gowns for inspiration!!!!

Animal Mystique

Animal prints are classic when not overdone. When wearing animal prints, please keep to one item like a bag or these funky Charlotte Olympia ankle strap, cheetah pumps. They are fabulous and will take your look to the next level. Try these pumps with a crisp white button down shirt, wide leg black pants, or a pencil skirt. Add animal printed pumps to your list of fall must haves!!

The holiday season is fast approaching so it's time to get gift ideas for family and friends.
BodyTime offers great body oils, soaps, lotions, and gift baskets. My favorite is China Rain which has an earthy scent of musk. China Rain will have people wondering what smells so good.

No, we don't need another reality TV show but here goes another one and I have to say I will no doubt watch it because I am such a fashion junkie. Stylista premiered tonight on the CW and it is about young fashion editor hopefuls trying to get a job at Elle magazine. They are running around trying to win each task at hand to please fashion editor, Anne Slowey. So here's to another guilty pleasure show!!!

L.A. Fashion Week Spring 2009: Leila Hafzi

This collection had an eclectic feel to it. Many of the dresses had animal motifs accented across them, such as lovely peacocks, goldfish, and tigers. Kinda like animal kingdom meets 7th Ave. Happy I witnessed this show.

L.A. Fashion Week Spring 2009: Samora

Sad to say that L.A. Fashion Week has come to an end but I truly enjoyed the experience of attending. Before yesterday, I had never heard of designer Samora; the theme of her collection was inspired by the City of Lights "Paris"; so romantic and flirty.
