Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2012 couture collection pays homage to the late, great Amy Winehouse

Keywords:  jean paul gaultier, amy winehouse, spring 2012 couture

It’s Couture Fashion Week in Paris, and Jean Paul Gaultier seems to have been mourning the loss of Amy Winehouse while designing his Spring collection. While Amy and couture seem like an unlikely combination, Gaultier used the perfect amount of 1950′s flare and luxurious, vibrantly colored fabrics to create a fabulous, whimsical collection.

Charles Barkley sports lipstick and a dress to show that men too can lose weight with Weight Watchers

Keywords: charles barkley, weight watchers, taco bell, 5 buck box

 

So two or three years ago Charles Barkley was the spokesmen for the Taco Bell 5 buck box. The commercial was actually pretty well done and quotable, but Chuck is a big man, so a fast food spot doesn’t really do too much for him. So now he is dressed in drag to promote Weight Watchers. When I first saw this commercial come up I was terrified, mainly because Barkley looks damn good in a dress. Gotta give him credit though, he did look slimmer and he claimed to have lost about 40 pounds. So hey, if Chuck can make it work then so can you…..as long as you ditch the Taco Bell.

Even with that, there is still one thing up for debate. Chuck looks classy in both commercials. But the Taco Bell one has him reciting poetry. Somehow Taco Bell gets the nod of the classier commercial, an award I doubt they will ever receive again.




Excuse me,  your skeletal frame is showing.

Keywords: models, fashion week, skinny models

Reading about the events that took place at Fashion Week (we hadn’t launched yet, otherwise we would have been all over it), and I came across this picture.  It was just in the Google image bank that I snagged it from-  be my guest and take credit to whoever took the picture- but jeese,  what’s going on here?   I know the modeling industry is demanding and competitive.  And I know they prefer tall skinny stick figures-   But there isn’t a single pair of healthy legs in this whole bunch!   Check out the pale girl with the blue top!  That’s terrible.  I am so glad my fashion involvements never included any type of modeling or behind the scenes within the industry, cause something tells me it’s a shady business to keep up with.




Juuuust incase Lebron does win it this year

Keywords: pic of the day, lebron james

 

If you guys haven’t caught on by now;  I’m not a Lebron James fan. In the unfortunate event that Lebron James and the Miami Heat DO win a Championship this year, I figured I would get my last minute digs in now.

 

The good news is, even if they do win, they still have not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, but 7 more titles to win.   Good luck with that Bron Bron




Topshop’s Aztec Sequin skirt is a must have for summer!

Keywords: topshop, sequin skirt, aztec print

It may seem like it is quite often that I am obsessing over something, but my obsession is rarely to the extent of this. While I am a firm believer in investing in wardrobe basics, I also think it is great to invest in some WOW pieces. For example this aztec print sequin skirt from Topshop. This print is one that is always coming in and out of style, and the colors can take you from season to season with ease. While this skirt would look great with a basic white tee for a summer night out, it will look amazing in the fall with some black tights and boots, and even better with some more layers in the winter! For $150, I think this is an investment pieces at a great price.




Shaquille O’Neal is a superhero once again

Keywords: shaq, superman

 

Shaq has gone by many names during his NBA career. One of which was the Superman moniker. The name wasn’t just generic though, apparently Shaq really is a fan of comic books. So of course the big Aristotle is now heading into the genre himself. The comic is actually illustrated by a guy who has done work with both DC and Marvel, the two big comic book companies. Come to think of it this isn’t the first time Shaq became an imaginary hero, although I wont remind you of the massacre that was Kazaam.

 

 

All right I lied, it is too funny not to remind you of Kazaam. I mean it is Shaq as a genie. How did they think this movie would be anything other then a flop?




He wants to be just like his Mommy

Keyword: kitten, cats, hairdresser

Everyone, I would like you to meet Dax!  I was fostering him after I found him outside, but I have become too attached to let him go (so has my fiance even though he won’t fully admit it!) Dax’s favorite toy? One of my haircutting combs.  Don’t know why…but just loves it! No, I will not be using this one on clients anymore lol.

 

Why the name Dax?  Well he is polydactyl cat- meaning he has more than 4 toes on each foot.  He has 7 on his two front paws, and 5 on his two back paws.  So to play on the word polydactyl we thought it would be funny to name him Pterodactyl (you know, the flying birds from the dinosaur ages!)  Clearly we won’t be going around calling him Pterodactyl all the time so we made it Dax for short!

 

He certainly is a cutie!!
