When I first saw these shoes all I did was stare. My initial reaction was not good or bad, I just stared. I guess I was taking them in. I guess I'm still taking them in. Now I have progressed from my initial just look at them phase, I now think they have their possibilities. I still can't help but wonder if they could lose the fringe, but then the fringe is sort of all right because it's opening to the side more or less. This is the first pair of shoes that has left me in a state of "I don't know what to think, total huh?" Can you help straighten me out?

This bag is classic, practical and stylish. What I like about is on the inside. Not only is it well made but it's got a lot going on for it in terms of utility. This is an example of a company that got it right. DKNY, who would have thought it!

I love hats. Don't ask me why I just love them. Here's a smart little hat by Coach. I'm starting to believe that Coach looks at the whole picture when dressing a woman.

Christian Dior, Spring 2009

John Galliano for Christian Dior. Enough said, because you know it's going to be fabulous honey!
I could go on and on about this collection but I won't. I will tell you the use of color is breathtaking, the use of flowers is no less than genius and the way the garments are tailored to the waist---well I promised I wouldn't say much, broke my word already! Don't forget to go to to see the full collection.

Just bear with me here. I'm trying to figure this out. Now I like the dress. It appeals to that "I've got to be different" side of me. I guess I'm not all the way in love with this dress because I haven't figured out what to do with the side that's grey. I know it needs something but I haven't figured out what yet!

Wow, now that's a top! Here's another example of simple yet elegant. Very versatile.

Alexander Wang
"Jersey Off-Shoulder Top"
Available at E-Luxury

I have seen this particular jacket done so wrong so many ways until I had given up on seeing it done right. Then along came Mackage. Now take a look at this. First up the collar, extended and folded in just the right places. Then there is the belt, which by the way is of the same material the pockets are detailed with. Then there is the sleeves, skillfully executed so much so that you can almost see her wearing some extended wrist gloves with this. And then there is the length of the jacket not too short and definitely not too long. Just right.

Could have sworn I saw this bag before, however they tell me it's a new entry for Valentino.

Longer Lashes?

The New York Times has a rundown on Latisse, the latest drug from Allergan (the geniuses who brought you Botox). Latisse has the same formula as the medication used for glaucoma, a formula whose side effects include longer, fuller lashes (“25 percent longer, 106 percent thicker and 18 percent darker”) and costs about $120 a month.

There’s something kind of asinine about using a drug that’s actually meant to cure a disease for purely cosmetic reasons (this includes Botox), but Latisse already has tons of fans and is expected to be an $80 million business by 2012.

So, would take drugs to make yourself prettier?

Michael Kors
"Origami Dress"

They could have done something else with the actual heel on this shoe, but other than that it's a winner. I feel kind of sorry for the guy who is even trying to talk to the woman wearing these and if she's married to the man I hear a lot of "Yes Dears."
