Head Over Curved Heels

22 Nov

I  noticed a new trend in heels, inward curve.  I especially love this look on booties.

I would love to celebrate the holidays in the Man Repeller booties.  They are business in the front and a party in the back!  Which pair would you wear to a holiday party?

I Will Be Channeling

17 Nov

Diana Ross!!!!!

After winning this on Ebay  yesterday!

Yes, yes, yes.  I know I live in Florida. But I’ve been lusting for a mink coat ever since when we went skiing in salt Lake City in February.

Dr. B just looked at me and said, “I hope you like it.” LOL!

Nail News

14 Nov

Apparently there is a new trend for men, male nail polish.  There are several brands that now make nail polish exclusively for men.  One such brand is ManGlaze, have you seen it?  It boasts at being the “manliest nail polish known to man.”  I saw the trend pop up a few weeks back during NY fashion week.  I actually didn’t pay much attention to it.  I mean for what?  Dr. B certainly isn’t interested, why should I be.

That is until last Friday when I went to the grocery store to purchase few alcoholic beverages for our trip to Jacksonville. The clerk’s nails were painted blue and white!  I guess it doesn’t take long for trends to trickle down to the masses. Have you seen any men sporting nail polish?

In other nail news… for those like me who sport natural nails, but find it difficult to keep a manicure longer than three days, Couture Gel Nail Polish kit to the rescue.  Couture’s Gel nail kit includes:

  • Your choice of 3 Couture Gel Nail Polish colors
  • Plus base coat and top coat
  • A professional 36-watt UV Espree Salon Lamp
  • Instructional DVD
  • Zippered carrying case for easy storage
  • And a bonus salon nail care kit!

The best part is the price.  It’s only $129, which if you do the math, is much cheaper that paying $35 for gel nail application at a salon.  This kit is definitely on my list!

Couture also sells the gel nail polish in sets of 3 for $45 (you chose your colors), additionally they sell the bulbs for the UV lamp for $25.

I can see myself getting tons of use out of this kit.   I love the look of short natural nails in pretty colors, and couture has some really nice shades to choose from and they update the colors every season.  How often do you go to the salon for a manicure, would you use this kit instead?

Accidental Ebay Auction Wins

8 Nov

I’ve been scouring Ebay for certain items that fit into my shopping priorities.  Anyway, Sunday morning I bid on two vintage dresses. A Lily Rubin silk dress and Bilba Indian Boho dress.  In all honestly, I forgot that I had bid on those items until I received the “you won” email from Ebay.  Apparently I was the only bidder, I’m praying that’s not an indicator of the dresses I purchased. Fortunately for me and my wallet, both dresses totaled $43.95 which included shipping.

Moral of the story, add an item to your Ebay wish list before actually bidding on it. :-)  Never the less, they are cute!  I’ll have to take them to my seamstress and have them altered.  I think I’ll shorten them a bit, so that I can wear them layered during the Winter and with sandals during the warmer months. What was the last Ebay auction you bid in?

Florida Gator Football W Magazine Feature!

8 Nov

In the November Issue of W magazine I was surprised to see a fashion editorial that featured the Florida Gator and Florida State Seminole Football team!  How surprising that this in-state rivalry is featured in a national fashion magazine?  The Sunshine State Rivalry between Florida and Florida state comes to ahead on November 26th.  Unfortunately, the editorial never actually directly mentions either team, but each team’s colors, and school spirit shine throughout the 6-page spread.  The caption read:

Fashion and football have more in common than meets the Eye: Strategic rivalries, and of course serious body armor.  Whose colors will you be sporting?

I’ll proudly be wearing my Gator orange and blue.  Well, not exactly the blue Piazza Sempione belted wool and silk jacket and matching orange pants that’s featured in the spread, probably something a tab bit more casual.  But, orange and blue nonetheless :-)
