Leave Her a-Lohan

So just finished reading the September Elle article about Lindsay Lohan in which she explains herself as a girl just trying to live her life. She boasts about her career and "talents" (“I just want to be nominated for an award for all the work I’ve done. It’s so funny – people forget that I played two characters in Parent Trap when I was twelve years old.”)and throws down stupid jokes like "how do you make a blond laugh on Saturday? tell her a joke on Wednesday." Believe me when I say it's not worth your time. And as that t-shirt says "Leave her a-Lohan" (so that we don't have to suffer through seeing her anymore!!!!!

She's Bacckk.

Zandra Rhodes, known for her hot pink hair and zany colorful array of eyeshadow, is back in New York. She recently designed a line for Topshop and a make-up line for M.A.C., but Rhodes is back for the thing we call, fashion. Be prepared to see those colorful fabrics we've been missing.

You Ain't Nothin' but a Hounddog

Today is the 30th anniversary of the death of Elvis, and fans are going Elvis paraphernalia crazy. This article is about an Elvis Presley vigil in Graceland, Elvis' hometown. Others are paying their tributes in Canada, some are remenicing on the way he changed their lives, and the Brits are paying their respects as well.

New Read

Today as I browsed through one of my favorite stores ever (ahem, Anthropologie) I ran across a book that I just had to have. The photos and illustrations are amazing and it's definitly worthy of your bedside table. I found it on (one of my favorite websites) for you.

What's in Style?

Well Divorce of course! According the the New York Times since the real-estate market is at a high, couples can sell their homes for a hefty price and then afford to have the divorce they dreamed of. My favorite quote: “The real estate market allowed her to buy her freedom.”

My Response "Nu Uh!"

We all love Vera Wang right? Her wedding dress on Jessica Simpson (even if we don't like Jessica Simpson), her Princess perfume, but it's so expensive. Luxury has its cost right? I've been having fun with the Go:International lines with Target but now -- now I'll be heading to Kohl's for Simply Vera. Yes, Vera is doing a casual (and cheap!) line for Kohl's coming out September 9! You can get a preview on this website. The ads are based on The Wizard of Oz.

Oh so weak..

Our weak dollar = higher designer prices (is it possible?) Enjoy the bit in which shoppers are said to have "caviar taste" and the nice photo of a ladies arm with wads of cash.

The Rush Hour

Barney's is having a warehouse sale... be warned. Mad rushes of people might be coming you're way - will you be one of them?

Too One-Sided?

I love this Jil Sander dress that Kate Bosworth recently wore to the premiere of the movie The Eleventh Hour.

And we all say "Dali!"

While visiting the Tate Modern in London, there was an exhibition going on featuring Salvadore Dali's works. Sadly, I was at a loss of time and thus was not able to see the exhibit, but it did leave me to want to research the man, and I surprisingly found that he has a connection with the fashion world. He actually worked with Coco Chanel doing fashion and jewelery designs. He also designed costumes for the Ballets Russes de Montecarlo's first performance at the Metropolitan Opera House of Labyrinth.

The British world has always had Sienna Miller on the radar for fashion excellence and Americans are slowly noticing her too, and now all of us can wear the clothing she loves through her new line Twenty8Twelve produced with sister, Savannah Miller. Sienna seems to be the fashion guru while Savannah is the actual designer. Savannah has freelanced with many designers, one including Alexander McQueen. Here are some photos from the release party(I love the white dress of Savannah) and of the actual line (featured in British Vogue):

Welcome Back Miu Miu

Miu Miu reopened it's store on Prince Street in Soho and what better way to do it with a little pizazz and a lot of par-tay? The store used to be decorated in a very sophisticated, formal very it's mother-store Prada-esque, but now it's got the edgy gold shag carpeting, brocade blue coffee tables look -- more like it's hip fashion style. Apparently the store's decor was inspired by Paris restaurant Lapérouse.

The "New Look"

Elle magazine is shooting for a new look with its September cover. Guess who will appearing on the cover? That's right -- Lindsay Lohan. The New York Times stated, "Elle is already generating controversy (or buzz, depending on your view) for putting the troubled actress Lindsay Lohan on the cover." Elle has never really been considered a true fashion magazine, so we will see how this helps its standings (but I've got to admit I'm loving their website.) You can read the article here

In her Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat

I just finished watching Factory Girl starring Sienna Miller as Edie Sedgwick and Guy Pierce as Andy Warhol and loved it. The director does a great job of juxtaposing the old-style film with modern day film techniques. The funny part of it is that Sedgwick's love interest goes by the name "Billy Quinn" and they also refer to him as a "famous folk singer" rather than actually calling him Bob Dylan. Maybe Dylan didn't want his name used? It is true that Dylan refuses to sing any of his songs from the 60's (which is disappointing since those are some of his best songs).

Well, Well, Well...

Apparently Nicole Richie is pregnant. She's four months. Now I wonder what she will look like in 5 months!!

Blast From the Past?

This "Phonofone II" by Science and Sons is a whopping $840 but it combines the past with present (which makes me want to listen to the song 'past in present' by feist and i could on this new phonofone! [said in price is right voice]). All one does is hook it up to the output of your cd player or any other musical device and you've got music playing like the good ole' days.
