($99, 80%20,
No reason. Just super cute 80%20 cork wedges the color of rain from my favey faves, Modcloth. Also, have you NOTICED how effin' cute their website is lately? I don't even work for them, I have no vested interest in them. Just pointing out/ applauding cuteness as I see it!

Cutest Lil Ballet Flats For Your Wedding, No?

($119.50, Maloles, Barneys)
Fully wackadoo that these Beatrix Lace Maloles ballet flats were originally $340, but I can handle them at $119 for sher. Perfectly perfect for you ladies looking for flats for your special DAAAAAAAY. I love how they're sorta little-girl-cute, sorta Madonna.

What to Go See This Weekend at the Movies

This weekend brings one must-see movie, Funny People. The latest flick from Judd Apatow (The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up) takes a turn for the darker and dramatic. Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, and Leslie Mann star in the bittersweet dramedy about a famous comedian who is diagnosed with cancer. He's forced to reevaluate his world. He becomes the mentor to a young, amateur comedian, and, in turn, learns a lot about life.

Binge Impulse Buy! Perfume Shirt, Peacock Necklace

So, I've had an absolutely CRAPTASTIC couple of days. Wah wah wah wah, call the wambulance. I effed my back and ended up at the doctor (Dr. Busey, as I like to call him, because he totally has Gary's chompers), with all sorts of needles up in my shit, and my hand's all fucked up too. WORST. Then I got home yesterday and my neighbor's toilet overflowed, which wouldn't have been so bad if it HADN'T OVERFLOWED INTO MY BATHROOM. It was raining both OUTSIDE AND inside -- in my God damned bathroom. AWESOME.

So, when I wasn't downing painkillers, I indulged in some MUCH-needed e-tail therapy.
($68, Joyrich, Kitson)
I have NO idea why. It was just a good idea at the time. (Same with that sugar-packed Starbucks McSugar Shake thing I had yesterday after the doctor's office, where they also did some nerve testing where they taped all these electrodes onto my legs and flipped the switch and electrocuted me like I was like fucking Jeffrey Dahmer. Well, that's not how he died, but you get my point.) Oh, but promo code "Kitsoncode" saved me 10%. WOOT!

($7.99, Charlotte Russe)
I HAAAATE leather cords, but it's got PEACOCK feathers attached, so the choice was obvious. Free shipping with Charlotte Russe promo code: "AFFFS."

BTW, Charlotte Russe has some really cute stuff coming up for fall. It's funny -- EVERYONE is scrambling to keep up with Topshop. Be on the lookout for some definitely cute jeans and jackets -- but they're like Topshop prices too at $99-ish. Worth it? You tell me. I only have this peacock necklace to go by.

Someone, save me.

Bikini Binge! Two By Tara Matthews

... And of COURSE, one's a peacock bikini! Normally THIS many sequins would make me a bit queasy (exceptions made for sequin jackets though), but the colors are gorgeous. Aside from the fact that I'm more of a one-piece girl these days (errr... they're more elongating? That's it...), AND that I ain't seen the sandy side of a beach in a year, the $400 ticket deters, but it's still nice to looky.

($400, Tara Matthews,
I really like the cut of the bottoms too. Not skanksville at all.

($370, Tara Matthews,
Also super cute. The birdies are kinda Esther Williams, but the bright turquoise is super now.

($740, Tarina Tarantino)
I fully endorse EVERY single piece of Tarina Tarantino's Electric Kool-Aid collection, but her bib necklace is the standout. This piece is like tasting every color of the rainbow -- like doing acid, minus the nasty flashblacks and 40-pound spiders crawling up your face! Win!

Oh yeah, and check out her subtle but stunning, wedding-worthy 1930s Art Deco Lucite drop earrings, which come in a handful of flavors. If they matched my wedding dress, I'd absolutely wear these day ofs.

ALSO, if you're in NYC, stop by the Soho store TOMORROW -- Saturday, July, 25 for Tarina's book signing!

Mama Want: Eley Kishimoto Striped Heels

AGHH! LOVE these Eley Kishimoto striped D'Orsay heels. They're like the color of a gay field mouse. I'd wear the pants off these shoes. Seriously.

($216, Eley Kishimoto,
Oh, I DO have to say though, I recently ordered a pair of SIIIICK, like SWINE FLU sick potential wedding-dress-heels from Yoox, and tax and shipping were like a ZILLION dollars. They were $200 shoes, but still. Boo!

Lust Life: Loeffler Randall Studded Wedges

($200, Loeffler Randall,
Sigh. It's probably for the best that these baby blue Loeffer Randall studded wedges are sold out in my all-too-common size.

That said, I'm still gonna go ahead and dedicate "Catch Me I'm Falling" -- one of my FAVORITE Freestyle R&B songs -- to them:

Man Fashion: Top 5 Swim Trunks for This Summer

As far as men’s swimwear goes, swim trunks are the most basic sort of swimwear. This does not mean that swim trunks are not great men’s swimwear and in fact, I do see swim trunks are back to trends. This is because men of any age can wear swim trunks, from young boys to old men. Most important, I like swim trunks more than "speedo" because they usually have a lining so that they are very comfortable, less revealing and they are not too terribly long either, so you can still tan your legs.

So if you are thinking of getting yourself a new swimwear, let see what I got to offer here.

1. Black and White
The most important rule of summer fashion: don't get complicated.
And the simplest way to swim is in black and white — checkers, stripes, polka dots, solids, whatever. None of it will get old — one pair should last you five summers.

2. Bay Watch Red
Always in style, a shock of red is the ultimate beach color and suits any skin tone. Plus, you'll look like you know what you're doing. Just don't pair it with a lifeguard buoy — that would be overboard.

3. Retro Neon
Add a little bit (or a lot) to your swimsuit for an unexpectedly sporty twist on one of the year's hottest fashion trends. Sundek and Quiksilver both make variations that have become iconic surfer-scene staples.

4. Walk the Bar
After showering off, throw on sandals and a clean polo on top of these. They're close enough to shorts that you can roll up to the beach club without worrying about judgmental stares.

5. Aquatic-Themed
There are limits to where, when, and how a man can wear animal print.
Remember to limit to marine creatures rather than land dwellers.

I Would Step Over Your Mother For This Arielle de Pinto Necklace

($238, Arielle de Pinto, CreaturesofComfort)
I would seriously step over your mother or push your grandma in front of a bike messenger for this mixed-media necklace by Montreal designer Arielle de Pinto. There is no way in FUCK I could make it -- she crotchets metal (!??!), and the little ceramic triangles are hand-painted. I want this so bad it hurts.

YES, Please: VPL Dress

($275, VPL,
I own no VPL. Nor do I own any YSL for matter, but I always admire the bondage-meets-ballerina aesthetic of VPL and, in the case of this "Breaker" dress, their use of not-boring neutrals. Want.


CLAP YOUR HANDS AND SAY FUCK YEAH! NORDSTROM RACK IS COMING TO NEW YORK! Nordstrom Rack will be moving into the former Virgin Megastore space in the Spring of 2010. I haven't been this excited since the Golden Girls spun off Empty Nest. Which ended up being pretty disappointing, but it started off promising.

Speaking of "golden," Nordstrom Rack is a GOLD MINE of jeans and shoes. Get fumiliur!

Jodi Lyn O'Keefe's Breakout Role

Anyone who regularly watched Prison Break the last two seasons might find it hard to believe that Jodi Lyn O’Keefe considers herself a mild-mannered pacifist.

“I’m really non-confrontational... I don’t even like to argue,” said O’Keefe, who played to perfection the ruthlessly homicidal operative Gretchen Morgan, aka Susan B. Anthony, on the nail-biting serial drama. The blue-eyed beauty regularly doled out punishment as if ice water coursed through her veins -- until Fox cancelled the series after four seasons of surprise and suspense.

It turns out, however, that Prison Break’s death sentence has gotten a very temporary stay of execution. Fans of Michael Scofield and his felonious cohorts will be treated to one last adventure in the form of a direct-to-DVD movie entitled Prison Break: The Final Break. And as fate would have it, the recently incarcerated Gretchen plays a major role in Scofield’s final caper, which, true to formula, involves yet another prison escape.

The movie, comprised of two additional unaired episodes and released as of July 21, will answer any lingering questions surrounding what happened to the characters in the four years between the demise of the insidious “Company” and Michael’s tragic death, which left many grieving viewers angry or in flat-out denial.

Upon learning Michael’s fate, “I kinda had the same reaction as everybody else,” said O’Keefe. “So we think he’s dead, but he’s not really dead and now they’re going to explain how he’s not really dead.” Since the series finale aired this past May, fans have been peppering her with theories on the show’s controversial ending, even proposing that perhaps Michael faked his death for reasons yet to be explained.

While she wouldn’t reveal any plot secrets, O’Keefe understands why some people are inclined to believe that the finale was a fake-out. After all, she recalled, “I cut off Sara’s head and put in a box -- and all of a sudden, I didn’t,” referring to how Gretchen decapitated Michael’s love interest in season three, only to reveal in season four that it was all a ruse and she was very much alive.

Speaking of severed body parts, was there ever a better pairing of TV villains than when Gretchen reluctantly partnered up with vile, one-armed sex offender Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell? Together, these two baddies could do no right.
“He’s so good at being so bad,” said O’Keefe of Robert Knepper, who returns as T-Bag in the movie. “I was actually nervous for the first couple of scenes we worked together. I was thinking to myself, ‘Can I live up to how creepy he is?’”

Previously best known for playing Chuck Norris’ daughter on Nash Bridges, O’Keefe not only delivered more than her fair share of malevolence, but she also discovered that she was a lot tougher than she thought.

As it turns out, “I’m pretty good at fighting. I did a lot of the stunt work myself,” said O’Keefe, who once allowed herself to be waterboarded in a torture scene because she thought it would look less genuine if her stunt double stepped in. “Then I’m thinking, ‘This is not such a good idea,’ as they put the plastic wrap on my face,” she admitted. “That gave me nightmares for I can’t tell you how long.”

Despite the occasional nightmare, O’Keefe has been living a dream for the last two years. “The most memorable thing about this whole experience is learning that I can actually do this,” she said. “Because I had my doubts in the beginning.”

Crocheted Jewelry by Luvasis

Fashion News: Crocs Could be Their Last Legs

Crocs were born of the economic boom. The colorful foam clogs appeared in 2002, just as the country was recovering from a recession. Brash and bright, they were a cheap investment (about $30) that felt good and promised to last forever. Former president George W. Bush wore them. Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler wore them. Your grandma wore them. They roared along with the economy, mocked by the fashion world but selling 100 million pairs in seven years.

Then the boom times went bust, and Crocs went to the back of the closet. Last year the company lost $185.1 million, slashed roughly 2,000 jobs and scrambled to find money to pay down millions in debt. Now it's stuck with a surplus of shoes, and its auditors have wondered if it can stay afloat. It has until the end of September to pay off its debt.

My glow by Jennifer Lopez

Cel de-al doilea parfum al unei celebritati despre care mi-am propus sa scriu in aceasta saptamana este My glow, cea mai recenta aroma a lui Jennifer Lopez in colaborare cu Coty.
Notele de varf sunt lavanda, frezia si nufarul, cele de mijloc includ trandafirul alb, crinul Casablanca si bujorul, iar cele de baza de moscul, heliotropul si lemnul de santal.
My glow va fi disponibil din octombrie ca eau de toilette la 50 si 100 ml si lotiune de corp.
Pozele pentru campania publicitara au fost facute anul trecut de Carter Smith, cel care a fotografiat-o pe J.Lo si pentru numarul de octombrie 2008 al revistei Elle.

Creat in perioada in care Jennifer era insarcinata, designul sticlei a fost conceput in jurul ideii ca "fiecare copil este un inger" si are un capac in forma unui bust de inger. Flaconul are un aer mai clasic, fiind diferit de celelalte din colectia Glow.

Din colectia Glow fac parte si Miami glow, Love at first glow, Glow after dark, Glow shimmer edition si Sunkissed glow.
