Hey guys,

I'll be gone for a week or two because of a family emergency. Please keep my family in your prayers and thoughts.

Thank you so much,

VS Pink Teams Up and Goes Collegiate

Friday, July 25, 2008

For every college student that loves their school and loves Pink by Victoria's Secret, your day is about to get a whole lot better! Pink is now carrying 30 schools with logos, colors, and all. Styles include football tees, cropped sweats, hoodies, jackets, tote bags, undies, pillows, and even blankets! I know from experience that the campus bookstore doesn't always carry the cutest items for you but Victoria Secret is looking out for you.

To see what schools are available, check out Victoria's Secret for more information.

Matthew Williamson Leaving Pucci

The day after news of Peter Som possibly leaving Bill Blass, Matthew Williamson continues the trend is leaving Pucci. With Williamson opening his own U.S. flagship in the Meatpacking District next year, he wants to focus more on building his own label.

I have to say that I'm sad about Matthew leaving Pucci. I really enjoyed the past few seasons and am anxious to see what direction the new creative director will take the Italian fashion house.

Looks like fashion week is going to be a bit crazy this year!

Anne Hathaway Mixes It Up

I love this look that Anne Hathaway is sporting but it's WAY out of my price range. All the leather with the pink chiffon dress is fantastic! So, here's a budget version of her look!

Project Runway Recap!

Wednesday, July 23, 2008

I felt bad for the models having the burden of doing something they have no clue about, but I felt worse for the designers who have to work with some ugly fabrics. Why did so many of the models choose satin?

I LOVED Tim's reaction about the inside-out darts on Korto's dress.

Suede is named after a fabric. Suede talks in the third person. Suede is a tad annoying.

First up is Blayne. I like that is dress is SO different from the others but with the black sides, it reminds me of a swimsuit. Anyone up for surfing?

Daniel's dress is great and his model looks like Blair Waldorf here. My only complaint is that I don't like that neckline. It seems a bit matronly to me.

I love this dress by Emily. The braiding is fantastic and I love the back but my only complaint is that it's really short. Really short.

Jerell's dress definitely stood out from the crowd but not in a good way. I love the feathers but other than that, this dress is a total bust for me. What's with the neckband and the random patches of darker blue?

Jennifer's dress is not quite "cocktail" but it's fantastic! I love the combination of orange sherbet and gray but the jersey seemed too casual, tough that wasn't her fault.

All I have to say about Joe's dress is what the hell is up with that circle cutout? The dress is simple and a bit plain but that hole is ridiculous. Not to mention the matching clutch!

As soon as Keith's dress came down the runway, I thought of one thing: hot air balloons. It's either that or a swag on a theater curtain. The hair is great and I love the neckline but the bottom has to go.

I love the colors of Kelli's dress but the bodice doesn't seem to fit properly. I wish she would have stuck to the main blue color and kept the look symmetrical with the left side.

Kenley's dress reminded me of someone else: Christian Siriano! The dress is beautiful and as Michael said, chic but it's so similar to something that we saw just last season.

The word was "fins" literally stolen from my mind on this dress. Korto's dress was a hot mess and the fins make her hips look huge. Speaking of, did you see how the seams made the poor model's ass look? Eesh!

Why any model, much less more than one, bought this fabric is beyond me. Leanne's idea of trying to stick out is a bad one. With this fabric, she should have taken a cue from Henley and made a sheath.

Talk about a comeback! Stella's leather fetish was put on hold to make a "beachy" dress. While the only thing that reminds me of the beach is the color, I loved how she kept her client happy and added her rocker edge to the dress by adding the lacing.

Lauren loves Suede's winning dress and would totally wear it. The strips are genius and the tulle sticking out at the bottom is a little punk princess. Depending on the price at Bluefly, I might just have to snap one up!

This dress by Terri is right up my alley. It's young, classy, and fun! I love the navy and the little ruffle down the back is a perfect alternative to the LBD.

Wesley, you should have known better than to do tailoring like this on satin. Especially ugly satin. It's only more of a chance that your dress is going to bomb and make your model's hips look huge. I do agree with Natalie though, the bow tie is very cute.

My favorites are Terri, Suede, and Jennifer. My least favorites are Jerell, Wesley, and Korto.

Who Will be the Second Person to be Auf'd?

Tonight is Project Runway! I have my line-up all picked from Fafarazzi and ready to go.

My team tonight is: Daniel, Leanne, and Kenley. Who will laugh? Who will cry?

What do you think the PR 'first' is? Who is going to melt and get sent home? Will Blayne bring more "girlalicious" to the table? Are you as excited as I am about Natalie Portman being tonight's guest judge?!

Tomorrow, I'll have my takes on the clothes that came down the runway. We'll see if I agree with the judges or not!

Speaking of Project Runway, Christian Siriano's line has officially launched at Bluefly. I love the gold metallic skirt, shirtdress, and two jackets, but I hate that silver zipper right down the crotch of the black stovepipe pants!

It's Project Runway Time!!

Friday, July 11, 2008

It's time for my favorite fashion based show to start it's new season--Project Runway!

After last year's designer modeling in drag, spit marking fabric, some fierceness, and of course, draping, I can't wait to see what this year's crop of designers has to offer.

and a fun little game I found let's you pick your fantasy team each week and gives you points for things like winning, fights, crying, and all that good reality tv footage!

I'll be putting my team up every week so you can see how things are going!
