a few years ago, my gf teen and i hosted a thanksgiving dinner and thought itd be a great idea to throw another one. we've accumulated many friends along the way and neither of us had an appropriate place to accommodate everyone so we brought the attention to our dear friend dee. within minutes of pitching the idea, she had already sent a mass text informing the gang to save the date. teen and i then knew that this was out of our hands and that dee had it under total control. i can easily get overwhelmed when it comes to planning such occasions like this so i laid low until i was needed. the night turned out to be an absolute success and i cant wait to see how next year will turn out. i wish i wouldve taken more pictures but all that turkey and bubbly made me exhausted.
here's a picture of the table setting i took from my phone. so cute right?!
so last month i posted about lanvin collaborating with h&m and it hitting selected US stores on november 23rd. apparently i had my facts wrong because its grand showing is due out tomorrow at 8am at south coast plaza. start camping out ladies because ive been told crazed fans are already lining up to purchase that piece of lanvin heaven. still contemplating if ill join the crowd but i dont know if im that desperate.
saw this red dress in the h&m's window display and kinda fell in love. im so not that girly but im all about it

have you ever wanted your very own boutique? well your in luck cuz google just launched a new website allowing you to do just that. answer a few fashion preliminary questionnaires then choose your style, color, pattern, and silhouette preferences and voilà!!! it lets you personalize what you like and dislike, therefore steering you into the right direction on creating your ideal boutique. it also allows you to explore other boutiques from celebrities, bloggers, and certain retailers to find out their favorite fashion picks. super cool if you ask me. i do have to credit my brother-in-law for telling me about this site so thanks sean!
if you havent gotten the scoop on the "it" blog thats currently all the rage..check out the man repeller. fellow bloggers such as le fashion and the haute commodity have given high praises and elite magazines such as glamour and lucky. leandra is her name and she's witty, cunning, knowledgeable, but most importantly, entertaining as hell.
ponchos and turbans and clogs oh my! all of our favorite fashion trends that give us "lady-boners" clearly do the opposite for men. on her blog, you'll find that the million and one things we ladies absolutely love, make men limp faster you can blink. if you're a fellow repeller, check out this blog cuz youll be consumed post after post.
HERE'S A LITTLE TASTE..
she has a keen eye for finding clothes that resemble a woman's vagina
"If the dress were red, it could have been called: Menstruation at Marchesa but since it was not, we will instead just simply call it the vagina dress."
leandra's rendition of this frenzy of a fad (which i do adore)
"Now, I say this: if Hanneli can wrap a towel around her head and write it off as a turban..."
"There's no reason why I can't do the same!
Note: If you intend to DIY, don't use a wet towel, that shit is heavy.
Another note: steer clear of small trees
One last note: I'd suggest you stay out of taxi cabs too."
fall's essential accent piece that every girl should have year around...especially this time of year.

for the past few weeks ive been under the weather and uninspired so i apologize for the lack of posting. ive been tryin to get better at full capacity so going out hasnt fancy me too much. other than dr visits, occasional dining out and the movie theaters, ive been quite the homebody and i dont mind it at all. definitely enjoying the time ive saved from coordinating get-ups and hair and make-up preparations. i guess i just needed a break but dont expect me to turn away from night life for much longer.
anyhow..since my last post, ive attempted to dye my hair back to its "natural" color (whatever that may be) and im already bored with it. going dark was only by choice cuz i didnt want to cut my hair (aka my security blanket) and show how visibly damaged my ends have gotten. i wanted to have it ombre'd but that too would ruin my hair due to the bleach and ammonia. then it got me asking... what could i do to sass up this mane of mine? i came across this blogger a couple of weeks ago and she totally fooled me with her clip-on bangs by jessica simpson. ive gotten my bangs cut before but they were never full enough and were a hassle to upkeep. they were hard to track down but i purchased the same ones a few days later and i couldnt be happier. i need to trim it a bit before i post pictures up but theyre totally fun and i suggest you all to grab yourselves a clip-on too. please show me pictures if any of you have these or intend to purchase them with before and after looks. thanks in advance :)
