Super Dresses From the Met Costume Institute Gala – May 2008

At the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy, there was only one dress that looked great and incorporated the theme. In my opinion that was Christina Ricci in a pink and red Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Haute Couture Gown.

As a runner up Naomi Watts in Thierry Mugler.

Zac Posen’s suit did a good job of illustrating the Superhero and Fashion look for Men.

There were many gorgeous dresses but these stars were the ones who epitomized the Superhero and Fashion combination.

Using Clothing and Accessories as a canvas brings Fashion to the next level

I loved the Dolce & Gabbana painted organza gown Rose McGowan wore at the amFar event the other night.

I love the Clothing and Accessories as a canvas. I’ve always thought of Clothing as Art but this is taking it to a new level by mixing what people consider “real” art with Fashion to create Fashion2. It reminded me of the Prada line for Spring/Summer 2008 that mixed Art with Prada’s usual beautiful clothes. Below are some of my favorite items from that line.

I gotta agree with Perez Hilton on this one

I gotta agree with Perez Hilton on this one. Gwyneth heard the call of the Romans and I’m envious. Ms Paltrow wore these shoes at a photo shoot to promote her New Movie “Two Lovers”:

So I guess I’m getting to like Gladiator shoes….Who know 😉
How bout you guys? Love? Or hate them?

Friends, Romans, Countrywomen & Sex and The City lovers lend me your Ears

Gladiator sandals are everywhere these days. On Celebrities, in the Fashion Mags and even in Blogs 😉 To be honest I really haven’t liked this type of shoe. I thought it cut a woman’s leg off, disturbing the line from her shin to her foot. For those of us 5’4″ and under, that could make us look even shorter. I also didn’t like all the straps over the foot. I thought it looked too busy and distracting. Take for example Sarah Jessica Parker’s feet in the promo picture from the Wedding scene in the “Sex and the City” movie coming out at the end of May 2008.

I just hate those shoes with the Wedding Dress!! I like funky and unusual. And as some of you might know, I have a deep love and respect for Particia Fields (If you don’t know, you can read about it here). But these shoes with this dress DO NOT work for me :-& .

Having said all those negative things about Gladiator shoes, I came upon a few yesterday on Piperlime.com that I really like. They aren’t too strappy across the top of the foot and I think they cut the disturbance of your leg line to a minimum.

Bettye Muller Baccarat regular price $420.00 sale price $335.50

DV by Dolce Vita Carnival-30 $65.00

Nine West Rossinis $79.00

Via Spiga Undo $165.00

I’m seriously considering getting one of these pair of Gladiator sandals. Since sandals are all I wear these days, I at least like to get ones that are fashionable.

PS If you plan on visiting my eBay store, take note that I will be posting a bunch of new Shoes by Friday May 23. Stay tuned 🙂

IS INTERNET WINDOW SHOPPING HARMFUL?

I found this blog post which I think is interesting. The post is called “Is Internet Shopping Harmful?”

I personally think it isn’t harmful but then I’m in the group of people that call Shopping “Retail Therapy” to coat in an air of self-help rather than admit to the addiction it may really be :/ . So is it a waste of time….probably but so are many things (TV, Video Games….ect). The above blog writer is correct when she says “at the end of it [Internet window shopping]; all you’re left with is an empty closet!”

How do you feel about Internet Window Shopping?

Also what do you think is a good term for Internet Window Shopping? It seems long and could use a better name. I’ve read “Screen Shopping” which is good name for it. I thought WISH might be a good name for it. WISH standing for Window Internet Shopping Habit and also the Wishing you get to own the products you see as you surf. But maybe you guys can come up with something better. Lemme know your ideas.
