No Lanvin even for an early riser!

I went to the H&M near my house and they gave out wristbands. They gave out 20 wristbands for every 15 minutes of shopping. As a shopper, you only had 15 minutes to shop and try on the items. They opened at 8 and my wristband got me in at 11. That means 240 people got in before me and NOTHING was left! I just wanted some jewelry, but none was available! I was pretty disappointed in the selection of garments, but I did find a SUPER cute brown bomber jacket. Oh well, I am still excited about my purchase today! Check it out!



Fashion Recap for November!

I love this Tacori ad in W Magazine. The jewelry looks like it is the beverage - just flowing out! I love it! Great idea!!

Venice High Flea Market

I found a website listing the Venice High Flea Market as a place where 60 vendors meet up in the 2nd Saturday of every month. They boasted the Venice High Flea Market as a place where you can find "Great antiques, clothing, jewelry, collectibles, toys, crafts, and much more..." Actually, the Venice High Flea Market was super lame! It only had about 22 vendors (I counted 20 inside and 2 outside). After I left, I realized I could not be disappointed in a flea market that does not charge. I had a nice time walking around in the California sunshine, but the Venice High Flea Market was a bust. No good antiques, clothing, collectibles, toys, or crafts - just a bunch of overpriced junk - I was listening to people ask prices of trinkets and the popular going rate: $5. I was shocked. I kept putting things down when Vendors repeatedly asked outrageous flea market prices for junk they didn't even want. Even a (clearly) used pet bed was quoted at $10. Hardly attending the Venice High Flea Market actually bought anything. Almost everyone I saw leaving around 10:45 (I came at 9:30) left empty handed.

Venice High Flea Market Rating:
Reason for rating: Lots of overpriced junk, no antiques or anything of real quality, received a higher rating for free street parking and admission.


Lanvin for H&M

Legendary couture house Lanvin will be coming to H&M stores on November 20, 2010. Major crowds are expected and they will be doing bracelet color shopping (certain colors have certain shopping times to reduce lines). 89 pieces make up the collection. Everything from frilly dresses, hoodies, suits, leather gloves and lipsticks! View the full LANVIN collection.

I am very excited because H&M has really been going for the designer lovers in all of us! They caught my attention when they paired up with Jimmy Choo (although I was not too impressed with the heels). The ladies Lanvin Collection is very flowery and frilly, but has a sexy edge to the dresses and the accessories. They match gold with pearls and colorful flowers! I cannot wait to get my hands on a beautiful pearl bracelet with a green/teal flower!!
The collection is huge, but I hope the H&M in Los Angles gets all the pieces - sometimes, my favorites do not show up in the store, but I know what I want because I see the lookbooks. Gotta do your homework before you hit the store! The Gaultier collection for Target had a great trench, but it never showed up in the Target stores near me! I was dissappointed, but I love when designers pair up with affordable stores. This is a great time for quality fashion at reasonable prices - Keep giving us great designers at awesome prices!! Thank You Fashion Gods!


Mulberry for Target

British luxury handbag design house Mulberry will be offering their completed line of handbags for Target on November 14, 2010. They have everything from totes, a Bayswater replica, and cross-body bags, too. They have patent leather pink leopard and PVC that feels like pebbled leather. PREVIEW THE FULL LOOKBOOK. They are luxury bags made with cheaper materials so they can be offered at cheaper prices. GENIUS, Watson! I have already picked up the bag I wanted from the line:

I adore it! It is large, but if fits everything and the pockets are great. The bag is not too heavy, but is SUPER soft and really a nice bag for the price. Mulberry bags start at $1250, but the Mulberry for Target line caps out at just $50! Yup, that's right, a CAP of $50 for the handbags. They are just fantastic!

I am really excited! I love the Mulberry bags, but I definitely cannot afford the $1250 price tag! $50 is so much better!

The last of the bags premier on November 14 and look just like the Bayswater bag:

Tasty Candy, Muffins, and Pie

I love these new Lemonheads! They are these chewy candies that are all different flavors! So tasty! Also, I made raspberry/blueberry/blackberry muffins.

I found this pie recipe and I think it will be so, so good!

Collab with JoesDaily

I have wanted to do a collab video and channel for a long time. My friends are not video/tech savy - they are awesome, but they do not like to video blog. I love it! I am so happy to introduce my friend, JoesDaily to my subscribers. I really want to do a fashion blog/vlog - I think about it every single day. I think I may need to fulfill this need in me by brainstorming on this stormy day and actually putting my thoughts and wishes onto paper. Then, I will begin building my website and ultimately, just have this channel devoted to the things I love in my life. I truly see this as a positive move. I'm going to do this!
