Converse style!!

The Prince of Darkness hooks up with the legendary sneaker company on another pair of kicks. This time around they transform the Jack Purcell into a “straight jacket” high top, similar to the Black Sabbath from some seasons ago and somewhat symbolic of Ozzy’s persona. White uppers with brown leather straps details round off the various Ozzy Osbourne references throughout the heel and liner area. They are modeled after a straight jacket and come fully equipped with a white canvas upper as well as brown straps. The inner lining features the same all over Ozzy print seen on the Chuck Taylor High – Ozzy Osbournes. They can now be found at Livestock.

2009/2010 Summer makeup trends!!

Summer is fast approaching, so it’s time to focus on getting rid of that dark winter palette, and add some light and refreshing shades to your makeup drawer.

The new trends for summer 2009/2010 are bold yet subtle, light and airy, and perfect for girls who want to make a first impression no one will forget and every girl will envy.

The one way to capture the beauty of the past is through sculpting. Today, the perfection of statues is being used in makeup through a new trend called sculptural makeup application. The sculptural look adds a sensual and feminine side to any girl’s makeup regimen, and it’s perfect for summer.

This summer roses are a girls' best friend…next to diamonds of course! This summer, rosy cheeks are making a comeback by contrasting with natural and fresh skin.

Blaze it up!!

Finding the perfect piece of outerwear for cool spring days and breezy summer nights is often a source of great frustration. While it’s fine to choose a classic option, like a trench or cardigan, our favorite solution is the blazer. I'm not talking about the super-snug, Balenciaga-style, shrunken blazers but rather a longer looser shape.

The French Alice!!

Alice in Wonderland may have worked the looking glass for Lewis Carroll, but in her latest guise, she only has eyes for the shop windows of Printemps department store in Paris dedicated to French chic and fashion. When we look through the looking glass, we see the Eiffel Tower. The star of the Parisian department store’s spring display, this Alice is bedecked in Haider Ackermann, Manish Arora, ChloĆ©, Ann Demeulemeester, Christopher Kane, Nicholas Kirkwood, Maison Martin Margiela, Bernhard Willhelm, and the late Alexander McQueen, and a rabbit's head. It’s all part of a collaboration with Disney, in anticipation of Tim Burton’s new film adaptation, which opens next month. “Curiouser and curiouser,” as our literary heroine would observe.

Futuristic Fashion!!

No doubt, 2010 will be the most fascinating year of all. It will bring the most unsual couture that will walk the runway. Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 runway collection was a statement about the future of our world. Specifically, the meltdown of our world due to global warming. McQueen’s version of Water world showcased mankind as alien-like creatures forced to adapt/evolve and live in the sea as the polar ice caps have melted. Out came clothing in reptilian prints and sequins to mimic fish scales. The fantasy heels on the runway looked like they were out of this world – or at least this land. They were super high, skeletor-like and featured interestingly curved booties designed for the animalistic and bold. These shoes are 10 inches high ladies. You have been warned.

Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2010 shoes!! The line is called Plato's Atlantis.

Lady GaGa was seen sporting these marvelous heels in her Bad Romance video.

Alice in Wonderland!!

Chapter I
Down the Rabbit-Hole

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, ‘and what is the use of a book,’ thought Alice ‘without pictures or conversation?’

So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, ‘Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!’ (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.
