ooh la la

we all know that nail polishes are not created equal, even after you've
spent your time and money at the salon they still manage to chip
[i smartened up and now do them myself] but
deborah lippmann polish
has this weird staying power that makes it worth
shelling out what may seem a pricey 18 bucks for some nail paint.

the cherry on top are the fun shades like this glittery "ruby red
slipper" a cool alternative to your typical french red [it has a black base!].
and if this shade doesn't work, you can always opt for a "bad romance" with
a darker Gaga-inspired plum.

belles & baubles

i thought i'd walked into an estate jewelry sale yesterday- nope,
it was yet another lia sophia red carpet collection designed by
nylon magazine style director dani stahl- how she manages to design collection after
collection in between shoots? i have no clue,
but very happy that she has it figured out, cause i'm in love.

the new collection la belle rose II had all the women in the room
shamelessly drooling over the table of baubles trying everything on
from crystal-dripped chandelier earrings, to gaudy ivanka trump style
bracelets.[don't be afraid ladies- it's all costume jewelry, so you
too can drown in jewels].

**santa, one of everything on the wish list pls.**

take note: tina kalivas


tina kalivas is no freshman
to fashion but she definitely has a fresh perspective. she works
with a community of afghani's on her creations. i absolutely love
this embroidered bra- the colors, patterns, everything about it.
and i want to dig in her treasure box of crafts below.
