A New Hermes Clutch? Well I Don’t Mind If I Do…

This will probably be the shortest blog post of all time because words cannot express how ridiculously amazing the Hermes Jige clutches are. I’m like a kid in an exorbitantly priced candy store and I can’t deal. Although the Jige clutch has been around for quite some time, Hermes cleverly released a ton of new hues just in time for spring. That said, all I need is an extra $4,250 and I’ll be set for the season. Why does the universe insist on playing these sick games with my bank account??!!

OBSESSION DU JOUR: Buying Bulgari Rings for a Great Cause

Nothing makes me happier than to know I can spend this kind of money on a sterling silver ring AND feel good about it because a portion of the proceeds go to the Save the Children campaign. I have a big soft spot in my heart for children and my charities of choice are definitely anything to do with helping them. Now, you may recall the gorgeous Bulgari ring I posted a few weeks back…I decided to replace it with this ring on my X-mas list because it’s obviously the thing you do when you’re not an asshole. I’ll assume you all are making the proper amendments as well.

Should I be Wearing This: SJP Fashion FAIL

This is just embarrassing. Apparently, Miz Parker decided to show up to last night’s NYC premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” in this fug ensemble. Come on girlfriend — your alter ego is freakin CARRIE BRADSHAW! Not to mention the fact that you’ve worked one-on-one with the woman who SINGLEHANDEDLY made Sex and the City famous for its fashion.

That said, I’m really not all that surprised. SJP has had so many fashion bloopers before and after SATC that it really doesn’t make much of a difference at this point. The funny thing is, she looks like one of the characters from the movie and she wasn’t even part of the cast. Go figure. BTW, Marie Antoinette called…she wants her cutout booties back.

I used to shy away from cobalt (aka royal blue) because it reminded me of an 80’s prom dress. Now I can’t get enough of it! It’s exceptionally flattering on brunettes like myself and I’m obsessed with anything cobalt blue for fall. It pairs so well with just about anything, especially black, neutrals, leopard prints and red lips. Try stepping outside of the box and pairing your cobalt pieces with something other than the obvious black, bitches!

Cobalt/midnight blue nails are also on my radar this month. My weekly manicure is coming up and you can bet your last dollar I’ll be requesting this shade. I’m not big on crazy eye makeup, but I’d probably try a cobalt eyeliner or a touch of blue shadow on my lids.

We all know the SATC 2 movie kinda sucked, but I’d really love to rock those ferosh Manolos right about now. So jel.

One of my favorite leather cutout dresses — DVF fall 2010

 

I’m big on color. I like to express my mood by way of colored cardigans, handbags or shoes. However, I have recently found myself going through a neutrals phase and I couldn’t be happier. Of course I own black dresses galore, but I got to thinking about how bored I am with each one of them. The other day I found myself browsing through my mother’s closet and spotted the most magnificent black leather dress circa 1987 (I kid you not). I just dropped it off at my tailor because it was in serious need of a shortened hemline. This was my inspiration for the post since the leather craze was splashed across every runway in March for fall 2010.

I love neutral leather, but something is so sexy and powerful about black leather. What guy wouldn’t drool all over you if you were sporting any of the hot dresses above? That means it’s time to put away your “safe” LBD and go and get yourself a hot leather LBD. If you don’t feel like shelling out the big bucks, you can try scouring your local vintage stores for a fitted leather dress and have it altered like I did to my mother’s dress (and NOTHING beats a custom-fit ensemble, trust me).

Go get em’ hot bitches!

Oh Bulgari, How Much I Love Thee

Trick or treat, bitches?? I’ll take this treat over some Halloween goodies any day. How amazingly fabulous is this 4-band  Bulgari ring?!? It was love at first sight for me. Between the 18k pink gold and the edgy black ceramic — I’m hooked. I’d wear this everyday with everything. Hell, I’ll even go out on a limb here and say I’d prefer this over a standard wedding band. How hot would that be? The only downside is I love me some silver from time to time, so I guess I’ll have to settle for diamonds since they go with everything. Ha, listen to me spewing all this romantical crap. I’m on my way to Worth Ave. to get one before they’re sold out for the holidays. I suggest you do the same.
