So I have been absent from the blog world for quite some time now, but I do have an excuse. I've enrolled in school again (yay!) and have been incredibly busy! I just wanted to jot down a quick post to let you know i'm still alive. I didn't watch all of the VMAs last night (I caught the end), but I did see some fashion I liked. Here's a little re-cap if you missed most of it too! Enjoy. -MS
Have you ever gone online and saw a photo of a really cute idea and saved it to your computer? What about a pair of shoes you loved, or a hairstyle you wanted to emulate? Well take that one image and times it by 1000 and you'd have almost all of my Sony's memory used up. Well I found (actually, my friend Lauren) a solution!
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard for all of your favorite images and ideas. You can all your photos (pins) on different boards and categorize them. Ever since Lauren turned me on to this site, I have been on it constantly. It's a great place to save everything you like and find new ideas from others! You can re-pin their photos to your boards so you never lose them! Check it out!
Now why didn't I think of this?! I have been visiting IMDB, Internet Movie Database, for years to scope out which celebs are in certain flicks, this is really neat! Zoe Saldana, along with her beau, started MyFDB which is a lot like IMDB. MyFDB is a one-stop place to search out models, designers, make-up artists and stylists. Finally, a place to give credit to those who deserve it! I can finally see who styled Elle Fanning's hair in the new Marc by Marc Jacobs ad, or who the beauties are Laura Mercier campaign. Who knew Zoe was so internet savvy?! Thanks, Zoe! I love your site!
Are you Betty? Don? Well you can be! Everything is so fab and so Mad-Men. I'm covetting everything in the collection, especially the cigarette pants. How chic?! Hurry though, this collection is limited time only! Grab a cocktail, sit back, and SHOP!
The Mad Men Collection Tie-Neck Top (also available in dried berry); 89.50
If anyone has been on Piperlime.com lately, there are two new additions. The first addition is that sunglasses have been added. Everything from classic Ray-Bans to Carreras and trendy Marc by Marc Jacobs are now available!
Ray-Ban Original Aviator in Gold, $139
The other new development--Project Runway Season 8 winner, Gretchen Jones' line is featured. And no, it's not a clothing line...it's a jewelry line and it's fabulous. The line is an exclusive, not-for-profit, and created by Colombian artisans. Plus, 100% of net profits are donated to Aid to Artisans, an organization creating economic opportunities for artisans around the world. I love her line! Now head over to Piperlime.com to shop these new finds!!
Uncle Karl is at it yet again. On Wednesday, he unveiled half of his collection for Macy's. No, this isn't the first time he has set his sights for the masses. His collection for H&M back in 2004 was incredibly popular. This year's Macy's collection features suits, dresses, and a few tees with Karl's mug. Would you expect anything else? Also, everything is supposed to be under $300. The collection is available in stores August 31. It's not Chanel, but still worth it!
