Anyone that knows me, knows I am fixated with sunglasses. They make a big statement and say alot about the person wearing them. This year I am in L O V E with my Tom Ford – Nikita’s. Sometimes you just want to be a spy, or at least look like one 🙂
Their are many beautiful styles out there this year, and many are surprisingly resonably priced. You can also find “look-a-likes” of many designers even more on the cheap. Yes, the sun does rise on my beautiful east coast !
Unless you have been living under a rock, candy colors are the rage for this summer. I for one am loving this trend. After seeing blacks and jewel tones from the winter my eyes are feasting on these colors. And, fortunately they look good on everyone. But do remember, just because they make it in your size doesn’t mean you should wear it. Keep your body shape in mind as pick the silhouette. Summer sherbert, colorful cocktails and sugary candies….mmmmm…how sweet it is !
I thought that the wearing pajamas out trend was ending its awful reign. It appears that I am wrong unfortunately. Also, on that same train is girls (young ladies) saying that if their boyfriends really loved them they would accept their laid back looks, ie. no makeup and those dreaded sweats. Ladies, let me ask you this. If your man was in a constant state of dishevel, would you let it pass or would you speak up ? Remember this, you are dating, you are not married 25 years. Both of you can easily catch the eye of someone else. This is your boyfriend not your mum, not your little brother. You looked your best when you caught each other in the beginning, shouldn’t you put about 5 minutes into letting him see you presentable. We are not talking glam-fairy here, we are talking a little mascara, if you have to, pull your hair into a pony, a clean t-shirt and jeans. Please ladies, I am so tired of seeing this really cute guy that takes a little pride in how the world sees him with ‘pajama girl’. Remember the woo-hoo girls ? Hummm….is this her on her dates ?
One of my favorite characters on television is Barney Stinson of the How I Met Your Mother situation comedy fame. Barney is a card-carrying narcissistic womanizer, but I find him extremely funny and surprisingly loveable. One of the best things I like about him is his impeccable sense of style. More young professional men could take a clue from this guy. In ‘true’ life, Neil Patrick Harris is just as dashing. Women, help your man with his style choices and if you are style challenged ask your Mum, if she is also style challenged hook your guy up with a few men’s magazines. I like GQ personally. Also Details, Nylon for Guys and Men’s Vogue are among the tops of my list. Men, it’s uber important to look your best for your career, the lady in your life and mostly for yourself. When you look in the mirror, do yourself a favor and quote our friend Barney : “when you get sad, stop being sad and be awesome instead!”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NEIL !
I absolutely love Kristen Stewart but her July Vanity Fair interview left me asking myself why such a horrid vocabulary from her. We all know she likes her bad ass label, but really ?! No matter how cute or how hard one is, having a potty mouth is a definate turn off. K, please girl, tone down the language, at least in the press.
July 2012 Vanity Fair
A glamourous Kristen Stewart is featured on the cover of the July issue of Vanity Fair magazine. In the interview Kristen talks about her haters and having her photograph being taken.
On her commitment to imperfection: “I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph. I get some serious shit about it. I’m not embarrassed about it. I’m proud of it.
“If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, ‘What an actress! What a faker!’ That thought embarrasses me so much that I look like shit in half my photos, and I don’t give a fuck. What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, ‘She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.’ I don’t care about the voracious, starving shit eaters who want to turn truth into shit.”
