Colette Paris, apres La renovation

colette new renovated 2008 10 Colette Paris, apres La renovation

Colette is one of those boutiques that has achieved what they call cult status, the fact that they have been able to artfully mix streetwear,kicks,music and high end labels have made them a constant pioneer in the modern luxury market.The hip and the cool never rock all one look, mixing it has always been where the flava is..

The new store has been able to fully express that with each area clearly defined,while still keeping a sense of accessibility, for example on the "Couture" Floor(img.above) the mannequins are at eye level and spread throughout the floor giving look and styling ideas right away…my merchandising self  is doing backflips!

Nars fall 2008 test run!

nars Nars fall 2008 test run!

For as much as I love the Sun and the summer time, one thing that the change of season encourages is change, darker colors,hot boots, mose layerrs and, if you’re like me , a new set of make- up colors to match the grey days to come…

I had the pleasure of sampling a few of  the items from the Nars Fall 08 Collection just to  give you an idea of what to expect, as a note I have bought make up online, If you know what colors work for you it’s possible!

 Nars fall 2008 test run!

My favorite item was hands down the Bronzer and Blush duo,Sin/Casino we all know what wonders  a bronzer can do when you have not seen the sun in months or when you are in the sun and you just have that Glow…

The good people at Nars have made it easier to include the matching blush, less stuff to cram in that little cosmetics pouch.

The Star Lip Gloss pictured above, Female trouble , a glossy lilac looks great on pale complexions a la Nicole Kidman,or Ziyi Zhang(right), nonetheless ,medium to darker instyle dec2005 zhang ziyi 1 Nars fall 2008 test run!skin tone can pull it of with a subtle darker lipliner, and ccould be a really cool Mod look but…just try it out first …. the texture really is what makes it stand apart it’s light ,stays on ,and has a great shine..

One a side note ,Can we please have some Asian Divas like her on some Magazine Covers and not the same rotation of like 5 actresses!

And last but not least is the Eye Shadow duo Rebecca with a Kiwi and amber color  Nars fall 2008 test run!that really works on all skin tones in various degrees,if you’re lighter you can wear lots of it , if you’re darker I suggest a lighter hand.

Make-up  is really fun,all you have to do is take a risk,be  bold and just dare!

Happy Monday!

Thx Erika!!

Not So Flashback Friday Video: NeYo’s “Miss Independent”

22 August 2008, 21.43 | Posted in Music | No comments »

Since we’re kinda on a theme of loudly expressing our love for strong women this week, the timing seems perfect not for a throwback video like we normally do on Fridays, but the recently-premiered "Miss Independent" video by NeYo.  Samia and I have had a few debates about NeYo’s status but we both agree that he’s had a ridiculous roll of hot, pop hits.

He got me good with both his "Do You" duet with Mary J, and his "Hate How Much I Love You" hit with RihRih, but I think I like "Miss Independent" most of all. The theme is great and the back-up dancers are wearing suits a la Madonna in "Vogue," which hey, you don’t get much more boss than that. And the fedoras, gotta love the fedoras.

Argentina’s President …My 2cents

Argentina President Argentinas  President ...My 2cents

Women are powerful.Most of us don’t know that and  it’s a shame…I won’t get in to the deep underlying issues.. but i’d like to bring your attention to  this fierce diva that is Cristina Fernandez De Kirchner,Argentina’s current president.She is rocking a thick belt,wedge sandals,a necklace other than pearls,she has accessories on! In some countries women can be women…power does not have to be masculine…argentina president2 Argentinas  President ...My 2centsIn the US ,we have issues..women in power if you take a closer look have to be almost masculine,granted taste and fashion are very individual , Nevertheless if you look at some of the most powerful women in corporations none of them usually have hair this long, or rock as much eyeliner…

To My corporate HighSnobette’s I just want to say it’s okay to be hot and have flava, sexy comes from the inside no need to cut your hair and wear turtlenecks to make "them" comfortable,cause you know that’s what  corporate dress codes are all about, hide as much of a woman as possible,she can’t express who she is…no bright colors,no bare legs…Seriously I wonder if Hillary would have gotten this far if she was "sexier" was there something really safe  and neutral about the bob and the pantsuits?

Hammer Girl: The Newish Look

22 August 2008, 14.43 | Posted in Fashion | 1 comment »

Hugo Boss had an event the other night and one of the guests, VJ Romina Aranzola (no idea who she is), was wearing an outfit that I’ve noticed has emerged as a hot look for summer 2008. I like to call it the Hammer Girl . It’s the famous MC Hammer harem pants combined with the skimpiest of American Apparel wife-Bs and an often colorful or patterned bra.

HammerGirlVJRomina Aranzola Hammer Girl: The Newish Look

I’m not sure if it’s just a summer thing or something of a reaction to the extremely snug straight leg and hightops look that has been dominating the streetwear scene for a while now. Whatever it is, I always love a new look, however, this is one that I will probably only cheer from the sidelines. I personally cut my teeth on punker looks and as a result I feel weird wearing anything baggy. I’m not even crazy about those jersey dresses just ’cause they’re too soft and flowly. But do your thing, women, blaze your new fashion trails.

And people say there aren’t new trends anymore.
