Gucci has designed a special purse for the holiday. At $3,290, the Chinese New Year Dionysus shoulder bag comes in hibiscus red leather intricately engraved with gold flowers and closes with a tiger head clasp.


Nike put a Lunar New Year spin on their Air Jordans.  The black sneaker has fireworks, red and white floral embroidery and Chinese lettering on the heel.  The kicks will set you back about $200.


If you’re looking for luck and wealth in 2018, you need to be in harmony with the energy of  the Earth Dog. One way to do that is to celebrate the colors associated with the Earth Dog! The lucky colors are red, green, and purple.  So rock them out.

I have been having a fun time with all the Runway set designs. Florals, popcorn, superheros…

Bringing Black Panther to NYFW, Marvel Studios teamed up with seven designers to create custom looks inspired by the film’s fashion. The designs were unveiled at a special “Welcome To Wakanda” event in the midst of the week, which was also attended by the movie’s cast. All seven looks are currently being auctioned off on CharityBuzz.com, with proceeds being donated to Save The Children.

I love and live for this stuff 🙂

Eclectic Jewelry

I recently discovered a jewelry designer with some of the most interesting pieces.  The designer makes only two (2) of each piece guaranteeing no pieces are alike.  You will definitely not see these pieces walking toward you on the street 🙂

Take a  few minutes to browse the website  http://www.Darkstardesigns.net    I plan on interviewing the designer very soon and will post that interview.  Until then, I’m shopping !!!

Stars In Our Eyes

The United States has always had a love affair with the colors red, white and blue especially in the summer months.  The colors together are always clean and crisp. Although they often stir nautical inspiration, they also tug at our all American heartstrings. With both Great Britain and U.S. flags sporting the colors is it such a surprise that the hues are everywhere on our fashion palette.

Lady Like

Lace shorts. What can I say. These are the hottest trend going right now and they look amazing. Very feminine, very sexy, very cool !

Whether you choose a vintage look, high waist or rompers, they are extremely cute and you can get them on the cheap too enabling you to get more that one pair.

Suit Up !

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!”

Potty Mouth

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.”

Girl, I Just Wanna Have Fun

Another beautiful day on the East Coast, sunny and 53 degrees !  Sometimes I just am not in the beauty mode (to blog on I mean, I am always in the mode personally) and today while talking with a friend of mine that visited Walmart last evening we had a long discussion about the fashion (or lack of) at that particular establishment.  I dont know if  I should laugh or cry, but take a look at this !  Decide for yourself.

Hair’s To You

It is absolutely gorgeous on the East Coast today, sunny and 57 degrees ! So, again my mind drifts; soft up do’s, loose braids and beachy waved hair.  I know this is nothing new for 2011/2012 fall winter hair, but days like today make me crave spring and what better hair to wear are these do’s.
