KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID


By the time you read this post, someone will have tried to convince you that there is a new minimalism. Whoever this person is, they are a liar and should not be trusted in any capacity. Minimalism never went away and the new minimalism looks suspiciously like the old version; case in point, this season when every other designer is attempting homage to the days when Helmut Lang, Calvin Klein and Jil Sander were actually helming their respective labels. All this millennial redux isn’t a bad thing as our appetite for simple, elegant clothes is never quite sated, but for those of who lived through the decade, the nostalgia can feel just a little too early. After all, there are women who still have their original camel coats tucked safely in storage, do they really need the new Celine variant?
The answer is of course, yes. There is still something appealing about the K.I.S.S. ethos of pared down design, be it fashion, art or even in the stripped down designs of publications like Gentlewoman and Dapper Dan. Whether or not women are ready dress like austere models seen on catwalks, they retain their interest in simplicity. Beneath the severity of minimalism lies a utilitarian spirit; Stella McCartney’s faux leather separates may look sleek, but they are also cut to flatter, accented by functional flat shoes and in season defying neutrals – same goes for the slouchy new offerings at Bottega, or even Philo’s heralded creations. Is it any wonder then that we keep hearing about the rebirth of minimalism season after season? The spin might be getting old, but the clothes keep working.

Kate Magical Long Gel Mascara 2007 Version

Kate Magical Long Gel MascaraI don't usually wear mascaras for casual makeup. For party and formal occasions, I prefer to accentuate the eyes with faux eyelashes. Whenever I do wear mascara, however, Kate Magical Long Gel Mascara is one of the mascaras I like to use.Magical Long Gel Mascara was launched in fall 2007, and an updated version of Magical Long Gel Mascara called Magical Long Gel Mascara N was released as part of Kate's spring 2009 makeup collection. Both are gel-based, and are only available in black.I have not had a chance to test out Magical Long Gel Mascara N yet. What I am going to share with you now is the fall 2007 version, Magical Long Gel Mascara.Kate Magical Long Gel MascaraThis mascara features a sleek black rectangular tube. The brush-type applicator is quite easy to apply.Though the name, Magical Long Gel Mascara, suggests that it has a full lash-lengthening effect, I found it gives a rather natural-looking lengthening effect than being dramatic. If you love full length defining mascaras like Lancôme L'Extrême Instant Extensions Lengthening Mascara or Dior DiorShow Mascara, Kate Magical Long Mascara is probably not what you look for.It separates and curls the lashes nicely. The formula is thin, but has buildable coverage. It doesn't make a dramatic result. It does, however, make the lashes appear slightly fuller, thicker, longer, and look natural.When it comes to mascara, I pay...

Kim Kardashian’s White Sass & Bide Higher Ground Dress, Love it or Hate it?

E! celebrated its 20th year last May 24 and reality TV star Kim Kardashian was there to celebrate the event along with other stars.
Kim wore a white Sass & Bide Higher Ground dress bedecked with metal paillettes that followed her curves. She kept everything else toned down; even her hair was in a neat pony to make sure the dress held the spotlight.

Kim Kardashian

What do you think of Kim’s E! birthday bash look, love it or hate it?
Well, I like it. The white and gold combination looks glam yet clean, sexy but not vulgar, slightly flamboyant but not gaudy, a little loud but still classy (and Kim’s the type who can handle it), and definitely sharp and edgy.
If you like the dress too, you can get the black version from Shopbop.com. That is, if they still have it. Because it looks like after Kim made an appearance with this dress, it suddenly sold out.

Kim Kardashian Still Trying to Make One Sleeve Dresses Happen this 2010

Kim Kardashian’s obsession with one sleeve dresses last year isn’t over yet.
Before I show you the latest Kim Kardashian picture, let’s take a short trip down memory lane and count the number of times Kim K wore a one sleeve dress in 2009:

#1: At the Jill Stuart Spring 2010 fashion show at The New York Public Library on September 14, 2009

#2: At the Baby Phat fashion show at Roseland Ballroom on September 15, 2009

#3: At the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in LA

#4: To her appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on October 1, 2009

#5: To celebrate her 29th birthday and to attend the “Lamar Odom Launches Rich Soil At Kitson” event on October 21, 2009
I thought that was the end of it but apparently Kim Kardashian is still trying to make one sleeve dresses happen this 2010.
Here are pictures of Kim Kardashian from this year still workin’ the one sleeve dress. And this time, she’s added shoulder pads:

June 19, 2010 – Kardashian sisters Kim and Kourtney attend the seventh anniversary party for “Vegas Magazine” at the Surrender Nightclub in Las Vegas, Nevada
Do you think the one sleeve dress with shoulder pads is going to catch on (if it hasn’t already)? At least it looks like Kim’s influenced one person – her sister Kourtney.
If you’re liking Kim Kardashian’s trend, here are five one sleeve dresses from Singer22.com...

Kate Spade La Casita Ginnifer


Kate Spade La Casita Ginnifer

This beautiful gold metallic hobo by Kate Spade is unique and pretty. This gold metallic Kate Spade hobo is called La Casita Ginnifer, which means ‘The Little House of Ginnifer’. Who’s Ginnifer? And why is it called the little house? And why is it in Spanish? I guess these are questions we will never have the answer to. We can only guess. My guess is that the bag is like a little house, and maybe it’s a Spanish style of handbag. Either way, this Kate Spade La Casita Ginnifer is cute! It’s a great every day bag. The gold metallic leather is very young looking and would look great with denim. Buy through Zappos $395

Kardashians Launch New Skincare Line

有沒有覺得這個廣告有點眼熟,看起來有點proactive的感覺? 對於這三姐妹的skincare,老實說我真的沒甚麼興趣。雖然說她們三個的皮膚看起來都蠻好,可是那都是化妝之後的樣子呀!你們應該沒有一個人看過她們沒化妝那樣子吧!相比起她們所推出的skincare系列,我還是對”keeping up with the kardashian”這真人show比較有興趣哈哈!

Knee Deep

Well, I got nothin' for ya today, as we are still knee deep in boxes and I haven't even uploaded my most recent outfit photos yet. So here, look at these new hats I made!I finished these a few weeks ago, not during the move.I will resume regular posting next week. The move went very well, but with 2 households combining there has been a lot to do. I feel like by the end of this weekend we should be in pretty good shape, but right now I'm exhausted, disoriented, and a little overwhelmed. Thanks so much for all your well wishes regarding the move; it's exciting, and I'll be very happy to be able to share some photos of the new place once it's in a more presentable state.Oh, and one more thing, since tonight is Girls' Night Out, and a very special one at that... GO SHARKS!!!!
