Uber Jetsetting

If you live in New York and you have been to JFK {the airport folks, not the man} then I am sure you've heard of EOS Airline and Limousine company. They are an uber luxurious company that offers private jet services. Say you would like to take a ten day trip to Europe {unless you want to take your private jet}, it would cost about $36,000 for four people {Steep, right}. But unlike with Northwest, it's actually worth the price increase. You won't have to worry about you neighbor breathing on your with their smelly breath or snoring in your ear for a 16 hour flight. Nor would you have to worry about not having enough cabin space for your carry-on. EOS provides each person with 21 square feet of personal space and a personal flat-bed. {For those 24-hour flights} If you're having trouble getting to JFK for your flight you get complimentary helicopter service or limousine service to take you to the airport or pick you up from the airport. And that's hot.

And Yet, I Digress

**Lame Legging available at for $40

Me, follow trends, NEVER!!! Well maybe in this case I might try to. There has been a movement throughout Hollywood for the past year that involves leggings. Yes, they have made a major comeback and have taken the fashion world hostage. They're everywhere and at first I couldn't see it. Then I went and brought a black pair from Wolford and my life has never been the same. {I know, how horrendous. I think so too} But as of now, we're borderline too risque for me. Lame and Leather leggings have been spotted on everyone from Barbados native Rihanna to Kate Moss. Not to mention they were all over the runways last year. I admit, at times I like my clothes spicy and bold to the touch, but I think I have a little too much in the hip area to pull this one off. For the most part the leggings are super shiny (and hugs even the most unflattering areas). Let's just say all of those, eh-hem, unmentionables and mentionables must be in the proper condition (and contained) before attempting to try this one out. {Guess, I'll be in the gym on the StairMaster and treadmill}

Unique Sandals

Origami Anyone? These sandals are from Ein/Tritt shoe concepts. Catherine Meuter is the designer. They definitely take you to the next level in creativity. The EIN/TRITT shoe concepts shows how modern technology can take shoe manufacturing to the next paradigm. Flat shoe patterns with reinforced parts get folded and fixed by the consumer. Production and shipping costs are significantly reduced. From an aesthetic point of view, it has a very geometric and architectural form that’ll definitely grab you some attention. Fold and go? Hhhmmm? Don't you wish everything was this uncomplicated!

Another Diamond For Kimora

Well it's not what you think. Kimora Lee Simmons' 18 year old pup Zoe recently departed from her pet palace at the Simmons estate a couple of weeks ago. Since then Kimora has been looking for a way to memorialize her highly favored pup {whom, btw, had a few cameo's on her A&E reality show}. She recently told reporters at that she had been looking into having her dog turned into a diamond.

"There is a company that makes diamonds out of your loved ones." [They] make diamonds from a little of the carbon from the ash, so I might do that. I might turn her into a diamond."
I don't know about the everyone else, but this is the first time that I have heard about something like this. Of course, my curiosity got the best of me and I had to search for who or what actually does this and I found LifeGem. What they do is take the carbon ash (all that you can provide) and put it through several processes that ultimately turn the ash into a diamond. If this is something that interests you, prices start at $2700 for a yellow quarter ct. diamond all the way to $25,000 for various other colors 1.5cts and above. Color spectrum: Colorless, Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. For the average person, this might be a little steep, but for Kimora we all know money doesn't mean a thing.

Tailor Made

Getting your clothes made is a option you might want to consider. Or making them yourself. Before you say it's too expensive, I'm here to tell you that it's not. You have the opportunity to be extremely creative. You can go the pattern route---Vogue, McCall's, and Simplicity are the more popular ones. Pictured here is Vogue 8280, (that's the pattern number)from their Very Easy Vogue Options Line. It's essentially a fitted sheath with short sleeves. It's sophisticated and classy and you can make it in any color you want. Or you can go to a reputable seamstress or tailor. Visit a Fabric store and you will find all kinds of materials. From leather to silk and everything in between. All kind of notions, buttons, clasps and everything else you can imagine. Some fabric stores offer sewing classes. Then there is the net. You can find all kinds of fabulous fabrics stores on line. Like Hancock Fabrics, Jo-Ann Fabrics the list is huge. So the next time you see some particular style and you can't find it or you want it made a particular way, consider making it yourself or having it made.

"It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

The Hills Are Alive...

With the sound of cast members launching clothing lines left and right. This story broke two days after Lauren Conrad's debut at LAFW... Whitney Port, fellow Hills castmate has announced that she is currently developing a clothing line. Port's clothing line is entitled "Eve & A" and will be a young contemporary line with a 17-piece collection which features tops, jackets and convertible dresses that will be sold from $40-$250. Adrienne Baravetto is co-creative director and works with Port on the line which will premiere in the fall. Swarm will be backing the new line, a company that is owned by her father Jeffery Port and they already have a contemporary men's line under their belt. I'm about out of patience with these girls and their knocks on fashion though. However, Whitney is the most fashionable of the bunch and though she doesn't have training at FIDM, maybe her Au naturale fashion sense will work out for her. Let's all have a moment of silence for that wish (it probably won't come true).
