Fashion Quote of the Day

"Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest."

~ Christian Dior

Fab Spread… WORD!

Take a look at this fab spread in January's Issue of Vogue UK, featuring sexy model Sasha Pivarova. SO FLY!

The beautiful Cate Blanchett is on the cover in a Armani silk-chiffon dress… and inside you can take a look this hot model in a combination of sequins, hot heels and lacey gloves. The spread is appropriately titled “Word on the Street” and it features sexy Sasha in everything from funky leggings, cool sunnies, rockin’ jewlery and hot… hot… fingerless gloves.

Feast your eyes fashion lova’s… this is fiyah!

Happy Holidays from La Senza!!

Wednesday the 10th of December was the annual employee Christmas Party for La Senza Corporation. It took place at the lovely Towne Hall restaurant, in the West Island. The restaurant was beautiful with its grand entrance, crystal chandeliers, huge bar area, big beautiful booths, open kitchen and festive Christmas décor.

We started off the night sippin’ on some yummy Cosmos, while we had our Tarot Cards read, which was slightly creepy because it was little too “real” for us!! We then headed over to the photo booth for our own personal little photo shoot, which left us and La Senza with a great souvenir of the night, as we got to take home our own personal copies, and they created a guest / scrap book with copies of the photos as well, which everyone signed.

Then came black jack, roulette and our own personal magic show with the great, Patrice Meunier. His tricks were super fun, different and exciting and even though we were inches away from him, we still couldn’t figure them out! Meanwhile, we were jamming to the beats of the talented (and sexy!) DJ Yo-C who kept everyone dancing all night long!

The food was delish… featuring mini everything like; burgers, lasagna, cannelloni, veal and more! MMMMM!

We also took some fab pics in front of a La Senza poster board… red carpet style! For a night we’ll remember!

Everyone was looking fabulous that night… including us… of course!!
Jo with a plaid turquoise sheer blouse, high waisted skirt, and black tights with rose detailing, black patent pumps and bag and a hot turquoise belt… SEXY! Yussie was in a silver silk leopard dress, black patent belt, grey & black snake skin clutch, black opaque tights and black patent peep toes… oh and can’t miss the fab red lips… HOT!

Even though the temperature was pretty frosty…and it was sooo hard to walk in heels in the snow… it was definitely a great night! Many thanks to La Senza for hooking us up with a fab partay! They really know how to do it up right!

Fashion Quote of the Day

"I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal,
simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes."

~ Yves Saint Laurent


Shoe Dessert of the Day

I chose these Balenciaga Fall 2008 Pointy Shoes and Booties… because… well just look at them!! They are soo effin hawt!! They are fashion forward, metallic and sexy as a mutha $%!!#$!

I would love to get my hands on a pair of these… preferably the stilettos with the criss cross straps!

Designed by Pierre Hardy for Belenciaga, these stilettos have mostly recently been seen on Ms. Vicky B, sexy Heidi Klum, and Selita Ebanks… and the booties on sassy SJP… so hot.

They retail at about $1100… so start saving.

*SIGH* One day… I too will be able to own a pair of fabulous designer shoes… that cost more then my rent…

Pay Less for Patricia Field

…. With Patricia Field for Payless!

Following in the footsteps of Target, Payless has recently been featuring “Designers for Payless”. A concept, I have always appreciated as designer items come at a much more reasonable prices.

The designers on the roster thus far include: Alice & Olivia, Lela Rose and Abaeté. New to the list is none other then “Sex & The City” stylist, Patricia Field.

The collection includes: “Conga” & “Rumba” boots, “Cha Cha” fringed boots, platform “Salsa” Sandals, “Samba” satchels and “Tango” coin purses.

With these Latin inspired names, perhaps Ms. Field is hinting we should start putting on our dancing shoes…. our Patricia Field for Payless dancing shoes that is!


My Fashion Icon of 2008....

Seeing Ms.Vicky B out about the past few days has inspired me to write this post on how freakin’ fabulous she is!

The pics below speak for themselves… she is hot, sexy and classy. Her style is always fearless, sassy and on point. She is one of the best Fashion Icons of 2008… cant wait to see her style hit the streets in 2009!!

The dresses she is wearing are from her own collection. You can check them out here: This is a little something she had to say to The Times, about her collection: “The dresses are priced between £650 and £1,900 with no expense spared, even on the zips! I knew I would spend a lot on the best-quality zips because, like many women, I've had my share of crappy zips, I wanted a zip that undoes from both ends because then you can either put the dress on over your head or, if you don't want to mess up your hair, you can step into it - and also, you know, going to the loo wouldn't be this whole big palaver.” She is too cute…

Don’t you dig her in this grey dress with the white collar… look at those accessories!!! Sexy silver Balenciaga pumps and a oh-so DELCIOUS David……. swoon!

She got assistance from Roland Mouret for her 'Victoria Beckham Collection' and if you take a look at both collections you see how much actual influence he had on her designs… even though he claims that he only helped her to find her a pattern-cutter and seamstress… mmmkay!
Check out this pic below of a dress from Roland Mouret's collection... the similarities are uncanny.

Any who… I still love the collection and so do many other people... obviously... as the collection is already sold out.

Check out some of the looks below. The dresses are very structured, classy and chic.
