Victoria Beckham Launches "Affordable" Dress Line

Thursday, June 30, 2011
Not only does the amazingly gorgeous Victoria expect a baby girl next month, is married to one of the hottest men in the entire world, and is the ultimate fashion icon (even at 8months pregnant!), but she has branched out and created a new dress line based off of the "Emily the Strange" teen character, and is described by the Beckham as 'girly'.
Victoria by Victoria Beckham will launch in stores next Spring 2012 & is targeted at those "girls" who want to look fabulous without having you break your piggy bank.

She told WWD: 'The perfect little summer dress, something that was fun, something that was girly, something that was easy to wear, something that would take you from day through the night.
'I’m opening these designs to women and girls of all different shapes and sizes, people who maybe want something less tight and clingy and structured.

'It also makes it more comfortable for during the day. You can wear them
with a pair of flats or a pair of heels and they look great.'

Headbands && Mascara...

Monday, June 27, 2011
I dropped by the store yesterday and picked up a few trims and elastics to make a few headbands and also make some new shorts (whenever my studs arrive!), so I can't wait for that. On another completely different note, Maybelline New York has come up with a brand-new mascara brilliantly named "LOL"; NO, it doesn't stand for "laugh out loud", but for "Lots of Lashes". It is mainly targeted for the bottom lashes, which sometimes is an issue for us girls. It combines the famous Great Lash Mascara formula and a spiky-ball shape (resembling the Givenchy one from last year!). It's designed to get at corner and bottom lashes, and to eliminate clumps.  And though you may giggle at the plastic fuchsia pine cone that now crowns your mascara wand, I promise the results are seriously gorgeous.

Maybelline LOL Great Lash Mascara, $4.50/tube at Target.

Latest Obsession...

Friday, June 24, 2011
Okay, so I am seriously on a mission to find me some of these headbands that the Olsen twins wore (Ashley, on the right, wore the Prada satin headband first, while Mary-Kate showed up with the exact one at a fashion show in Paris)! Or at least make some! Does anyone know where I could find some of these?!
I am desperate!

Britney Spears' New Single!

Wednesday, June 22, 2011
So I gotta say that I have been the BIGGEST Brit fan since she first came into the spotlight; I was in late 5th grade and ever since then, I have loved about almost all of her music. To honor her new single today, here is the video and even though I'm not so crazy about her look (in a way she kind of reminds me of Avril Lavigne with the pink in her hair!), she still manages to rock it in her own way.

Ex-Dior Designer, John Galliano, on Trial Today

Former Dior designer John Galliano goes on trial Wednesday, charged with hurling anti-Semitic slurs in a Paris cafe — allegations that shocked the fashion world and cost him his job at the renowned French high-fashion house.

Galliano is charged with "public insults based on origin, religious affiliation, race or ethnicity" and could face up to six months in prison and euro22,500 ($32,175) in fines. The verdict is expected at a later date.
The outspoken British designer will be present at the one-day trial, his lawyer Aurelien Hamelle said.
Dior fired Galliano after 14 years with the company and denounced his comments. After joining the company in 1996, Galliano made an indelible mark on the storied house, with theatrical, often outrageous, runway shows that were among the most-anticipated displays on the Paris fashion calendar.
The trial, too, comes on the opening day of another round of Paris fashion shows, the menswear spring-summer 2012 collection.
