Favorites Of The Day

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

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.

Lovin Life, Truth Is

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?
