#PFW: Valentino

I love this Spring/Summer 2010 collection by Valentino.

It's so feminine and youthful.

The new designers at Valentino, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, made the house's signature femininity relevant for a new younger customer.

I loving the fine texture and gold lace on tops and tunics.

Those roses, languid bows and frills that are signature Valentino stamps - and have been everywhere this season - And I'm falling in love!!!

Other on-trend looks included cuffed shorts, scrolling bias ruffles and short thigh-high hemlines

I love it! BEAUTIFUL Collection!

Mag Love: Jay-Z covers Da Vibe Mag

Ok I love this man... everyone knows....

I'm such a dork- I didn't peep that the Mag was in French... hahahah

It's Dope nonetheless....

Jay going Hard to Promote BP3 I see....

Sidebar: the Paint strikes are making me think of paint splatter tee's and denims....


My Fashion Life: I Heart My Zara Jacket

I tweeted the yesterday how I'm boarderline obsessed with my new Zara sequin moto jacket.

I wore it ALL last weeknd, Monday and Tuesday!!!!- Talk about falling in love...

I heart that the jacket sleeves comes a couple of inches pass my elbows. It's a great length to show off a dope pair of gloves for Fall.

It looks shiny in the photo- but the sequin is rather dull. If you are steps away from me, you wouldn't know it's sequin. It's fabulous!!!

Great addition to an All Black Fit. Adds texture and Rock and Roll Chic to any simple look.

I didn't pay much at all- only $80.00...

What you guys think?


#PFW: Alexander McQueen

I HEART this collection- it reminds me of a scary super hero borderline out of the this world being.

The silhouettes are very short- Big Trend, with exaggerated shoulderlines. I love the voluminous rounded sleeves. Peep south of the ankles!!!

I so can see Rihanna rocking one of these fits. I'm in!!! :)

I wish I was in Paris right now!!!


Let's have a TwoSome: Two-Finger Rings

I've been looking for some cool looking, not too flashy two finger rings to wear on a everyday basis.

A chic enough design where I can throw the ring on with a blazer and jeans, a skirt, a work suit, or even a Juicy swaetsuit.

As I was on my Google search for a cute subtle two finger ring- I came across Erica Anenberg's two-some rings.

I just hit my fashionable good friends at Pnkelephant to see what they are cooking up and they informed me they are looking for some two-finger rings like these.... YAAAAY!!!
I will let you guys know when they update their site...
Have you visited Pnkelephant... they have popping jewels... LOCK IN PEOPLE!!!

If you guys see any- let me know :)


MAC and DSquared Collabo

Like I told you guys before I'm getting really interested in make-up. I believe it an important factor when designing your look. Whether you keep a fresh face of dramatic face, I'm starting to understand the importance of make-up and beauty products.

Keebs from the DMV will have a great post for you guys this week- but I wanted to take a look at the new collabo collection from Mac.

I like Mac because with alot of their collabos the masterminds at MAC understands how make-up and fashion go hand in hand and I love the collabos with the various great fashion brands.

Mac has collabos with brands; such as Alexander McQueen, Ungaro, Hello Kitty- just to name a few. MAC has teamed up with DSquared designers Dean and Dan Caten on a limited-edition cosmetics line.

"This collection brings us to the Ziegfeld Follies by way of Grey Gardens, a bit dishevelled, a little Girl Interrupted, both dramatically hip and dangerously sexy," says the brand.

Skin is neutral but flawlessly contoured using two-tone Sculpt and Shape Powder, while new greasepaint sticks in blue and violet and Pro Gloss create a super-heavy, exaggeratedly sooty eye. Lips are nuded-out with Pro Erase, then finished with nude or blood red Lipstick and/or Tinted Lip Conditioner.

The full range:
Lipstick in Nude Rose, a sheer light neutral pink; and Blood Red, a clean deep berry (£12/€17.50)
Lip Erase in Dim (£11/€16.50)
Tinted Lip Conditioner in Fuchsia Fix, a deep pink sheen (£10.50/€17)
Gloss Texture (clear) (£13/€21)
Sculpt and Shape Powder in Bone Beige/Emphasize, a pale cream/tan; and Accentuate/Sculpt, pale blushed beige/soft taupe brown (£16.50/€24)
Greasepaint Stick in V, bright blue violet; and B, bright yellow blue (£13/€19)
Kohl Power Pencil in Feline, a rich black (£12/€17.50)
Brush 165 a tapered cheek/highlight brush(£24.50/€40)
Tomorrow I'm going to Macy's to the MAC counter and do a lipstick test! I want to buy a great shade. I find it hard because I have a weird color/shade top lips... everyone knows it...
(You have no idea how many lip jokes I get... I laugh them off... but I know I can't wear every shade) I'm going to try out almost every shade- any suggestions for a Brown Girl???
