Shine On...

Don't store away your sequins for next winter just yet! According to the 2010 Spring Runways, Sequins are still a hit this coming season. Incorporate with fun spring colors, from pastels to brights. No need to opt only for florals or soft ruffly fabrics, instead bring some rock and pizzazz to this Spring Season. Now you can rock the sequins with more skin for a more sexy and seasonal approach. Keep the tights in the storage bin, show off that skin and let yourself SHINE!

Thanks to for providing all these designer looks straight from their 2010 Spring Fashion Runway.

6126 by Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan launched an all LEGGING collection named 6126 last year, but she has recently announced her expansion of the brand.  All I remember about her brand was that I was interested before I saw the horrendous price for her leggings. I mean Im used to paying $5 to $20 for leggings... so a pair of leggings for $100 is wayyy beyond me.  

The sketches look cuuute but like I mentioned before the prices are a little outta my range. Can't wait to see the finished products

Nails Did for New Years

Super excited for New Years celebrations especially because I am going to Vegas!! Woohoo!!
So i reallllllly wanted to spice up my nails...After massive googling of nail art and designs, I got my inspiration to do jewelssss n lots of it! What do u think?

I used my favvvvie OPI's You Don't Know Jacques! When this color was first introduced to the world in the France Collection, You Don't Know Jacques and I fell in love <3 LOL. no lie, pumpkin pie.

Resort Ready?

Following Sarah's post about being Resort Ready, and courtesy of, start looking for you sailor look now for your Spring 2010 wardrobe! Ahoy!

Trendy Tuesday -- Nauticals

Ahoy! With spring just around the corner, channel your yachtastic side and go NAUTICAL!

Chanel, Louis Vuitton (2010 Resort Collection -- on model shown above), and Marc Jacobs have jumped on Spring with the classic white and navy stripes, anchors, sailboats galore! Im dyingggg for that Chanel bracelet and Marc Jacobs Sailor earrings!!  Nautical is not always about stripes (Thank God! -- because those horizontal stripes can be very unforgiving...if ya know what i mean!), more about looking like you just stepped off of a yacht, sail boat or cruise with a mix of red, white and blues. Keep it funky and maybe even "naughty".. Hahaha.

I like our Outfits

Nikki is wearing a cute Missoni-ishhh AGB Dress she got for christmas with her Grandma's belt and Franco Sarto leather riding boots! CAYOOOT! :p

I am wearing a men's v-neck tee under my favvvv Urban Outfitters Blazer, and purple H&M skirt. I finished off the look with a slouchy black beanie from Forever21 and Zara studded flats i got for Christmasss! :)

I had to post a close up of my Zara's. Ohhhwweee! Thank you Secret Santa!

(disclaimer: not-so-good quality pictures were taken from my BlackBerry, not digi-cam! wamp wamp)

Men in Cardi's

CHOW! I loveeeeeeeee me some MEN IN CARDIGANS! ;)
Attention FashionMisters: You too can look fly like Kanye West or David Beckham with a Cardigan. Cardigans are now going further than your grandmother's closet and into Men's fashion... which has got me smiling ear to ear. I love love love it.
Cardigans soften a man's appearance with great sophistication and class. Pay attention guys because this is a dope trend out there.
See how our favorite male celebs are wearing their cardi's...

David Beckham (couldn't cut out the fashion queen Victoria Beckham lol), Kanye West, Carmello Anthony, P Diddy, Swizz Beats and Jay Z look reeeeal nice wearing all different styles/color combo cardigans. You do not need to go so bright or loud with your colors like Yeezy and Swizz, keep it simple with the greys, blacks & whites. Either way, its all good in the hood! :) :)

Yay or Nay? -- Christopher Kane

Would you rock British designer, Christopher Kane's multicolored cloud T-shirt???.... Kind of reminds me of a tie-dye shirt. Its not really my cup of tea. I really expected a lot more from Kane, especially he came so hard with his 2009 Gorilla print tunic that Rihanna was caught rockin!

Alice in Wonderland

With Disney's Alice in Wonderland set to debut in theaters in March 2010, OPI and Urban Decay has incorporated it's whimsical colors into their own! Urban Decay is known for their unique and wild makeup, wellll... at least for me! And it doesn't surprise me that Urban Decay linked up with Tim Burton's magical reinvention of Alice in Wonderland! This new book of shadows has me DROOLING!! Literally! I cannot wait for its release in Spring of 2010 (as rumor has it).

OPI has also collaborated with Disney's Alice in Wonderland to create this AWESOME AWESOME collection of polishes!!! I cannot wait for these babies to hit the selves... CHOW!!! I absolutely love OPI's clever polish names, fits perfectly with Tim Burton's brilliance. The collection names include  Absolutely Alice, Mad as a Hatter, Off With Her Red and Thanks So Muchness!

Absolutely Alice and Mad as a Hatter are both jam-packed with glitter! O-M-G.. its definitely a must have in my books!

Top row: Mad as a Hatter & Off with Her Red
Bottom: Absolutely Alice and Thank You So Muchness

Check out the trailer for Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland below!

Makeup Monday -- Fake Eyelashes

Love it or Hate it? I love em just as long as they are used for special occasions. There are girls who wear em everyday and others who have never worn fake eyelashes!

These lashes are all from She Umera, whose been running this Lash Game! LOL But other companies like MAC, Ardell & Laura Merceir sell em in different colors, shapes and sizes. Whether you want em jeweled, feathered colored or separated... do not fear you will find em! hahah. Spice up your look and rock them fake eyelashes as they were your own!!! Cus I do :P

So, I bought Bumpits a while back and havent had the time to enjoy the grandioseness. I felt kinda iffffffy buying this "As Seen on TV" product because I am a proud hair teaser and hair spray-er, if that makes any sense LOL

(courtesy of Bumpits -- colors available in Dark Brown, Light Brown & Blonde)

Check out my bumpit masterpiece. Im not gonna lie, its a lot less time consuming than teasing and hairspraying! My verdict is A-. Why the minus? Because you do have to pay attention to hiding the bumpit piece with your hair.. but other than that, it was pretty awesome!! What do u think??

Thoughtful Thurs -- One Size Fits All

I love love love this V Magazine's January issue featuring plus size models!
At first glance at these exclusive sneak peek pictures, I honest to God thought it was the same girl pictured twice...
But then I continued to read the details on V Magazine's "One Size Fits All" spread.. and realized that features a stereotypical thin model Jacquelyn Jablonski and plus-size model Crystal Renn wearing the same outfits head to toe, with their motto that "Fashion can flatter any figure" -- Amen!!!

'Tis the Season for Flattering Coats

1. If you have broad shoulders:
Opt for loose fitting coats at mid or long length.

Asos Selected Femme Wrap Collar Cocoon Princess Coat ($323); Matalan Magazine Feature Cocoon Coat $64); John Lewis Oasis Sculpture Cocoon Coat ($96)

2. If you have a Boyish Frame:
Try coats with "princess" silhouette with double breasted buttons and patch pockets.

Burberry Double Breasted Twill Coat ($1200); INC Double Breasted Belted Coat ($119); Forever 21 Woven Double Breasted Jacket ($40) <-------- super fly!

3.  If your curvy:

Forever 21 Belted Fleece Coat ($40); Guess Charlotte Belted Coat ($198); Dries Van Noten Belted Coat ($2416)

4. If you have a tummy:
Stick with straight, single breasted and tailored coats.

Paul & Joe Sister Congo Trench Coat ($250); Preston & York Seam A-Line Walk Coat ($150); John Lewis Tweed Single Breasted Coat ($192)


I'm GUILTY. I totally want one! LOL
Comes in red, blue, pink, zebra print & leopard!!! (and they have kids sizes too!! its called the "Snugglette")

OMG, Hot Topic has release a Snuggie bootleg but its called "Ninja Turtle Funky Cozy"
i sooooooooo want one! They go for $28, a couple more dollars than the original Snuggies.

Fuchsia Lips

What do you think about Fuchsia lipstick??

i think i like it but the rest of your makeup should be very minimal...
Stick with a basic black and white outfit and WOW em with a burst bright lips. Try to find the perfect shade of pink/fuchsia for your skin tone.

Check Kim Kardashian's version of Fuchsia lip -- both "naughty or nice"

"Naughty" is more heavier smokey eyes paired with the lovely bright lip.

"Nice" is a more natural look with a hint of blush & the scandulous lips.

To be honest, im loving the Nice look more than her Naughty look!
