Les Chic, Les Chien (Week Eleven)

Each week, I review one hundred looks, half of which induce the phonetic uh-mey-zing and half of which induce more violent vomit than the night Jake chose Vienna. With this series (translation: the cool, the rotten), you will ascertain, via my eyes, why an ensemble should spend an evening as your apparel or why an ensemble should spend an evening inside a nondescript box whose ultimate destination is the Salvation Army.

Seriously. Miranda Kerr is too perfect for words. If I could be anyone, I think she would be a possible candidate. She is gorgeous, has a exotic looking face and seriously knows what the hell she is doing when it comes to fashion. Don't let this Victoria's Secret model fool you with that steamy lingerie. Miranda is one of the classiest women in the limelight in my opinion. She always looks chic, and put together. I absolutely ADORE her gorgeous, conservative, floral frock. She rocks simple jewelry, red lips and models the most luscious locks. I die for her.  

Seriously with all of the Kimye crap. I am honestly beyond words ANNOYED. Puh-lease. You all know how much I admire Kim and while I was never much a fan of Kanye (especially after the Taylor Swift incident), I am actually starting to grow on his swag. But, can we be open and talk about how terrifying both of these ensembles are. Lets be real for a minute. Kanye became famous because he is a talented music artist, right? Okay so when did "fashion designer" fall in the same category as "music, rap, singer etc." Good grief! He should have no say in Kim's wardrobe because if you focus on his, its crap. He needs to stick to his music and she needs to STOP taking his advice. Seriously, when your boyfriend is wearing more jewelry than you, you gotta problem.

Battle Of The Bloom

The 2012 VMA's were held Thursday and boy did we get our fair share of fashion. You should know by now how excited I get for award shows. I mean, the fashion is typically beyond words (sensing the sarcasm I hope) of course. Thankfully I had the honor of discovering one gorgeous babe. In the mean time, I also had to thumb my way though a dozen and a half worst dressed look. I just pray that the fashion gods come down sometime soon and help these desperate celebs out. I think it's the only shot we got. 

Demi Lovato was looking smoking hot in her adorable, sparkly, black mini frock. She mixed her edgy studded leather jacket and rockin' black booties while performing "Give Your Heart a Break" outside the Staples Center at the VMA pre-show. She didn't forget to apply that super sexy red lipstick while she gave her hair a break with beach waves.

OH EM GEE. For realies! I seriously wanted to go smoke a bong (in honor of Miley of course) when I witnessed this whole ensemble. Honestly, it makes me want to arrange my funeral, like... now! Who on God's green earth believes this disaster is appropriate. My goodness. The black boob-a-licious dress has "N-O" written all over it and to top it off that god-awful mohawk of hers desperately needs to disappear. What happened to the pretty Miley we all love and know.

Fash In 360 (Destination Two)

Backpacking around the world from now until early next year, my longtime childhood friend, Ashley, is taking photographs around the world to assemble a portfolio for future jobs. Along the way, she will be sending information and some photographs regarding the latest fashion trends from each city she visits. I am seriously ecstatic to have the opportunity to share this firsthand information with you, my readers. With Ashley's endeavor, we can develop and evolve our own personal favorites into our wardrobe at home.

While Ashley explored around Amsterdam, she communicates to us that the people are a lot more laid back. They strolled around in sweaters and scarves accompanied by skinny jeans. While she was there, she got to experience the gay pride parade that was going on. She says you can only imagine all of the pink, sequins, tutus and speedos while everyone danced around to Lady Gaga. Paws up! Below are a few pictures of Amsterdam fash.

A few personal pictures from Ashley while she attended the gay pride parade.

Keep Makin' Me Ill (Week Ten)

I have what the unenlightened would deride as a compulsion, fetish, infatuation, or obsession, yet I value as a virus every male and female should contract, Seriously Irresistible Shoes Syndrome. I need clothes (how many consecutive afternoons can one wear Lauren Conrad leggings? Love you LC), however when I even glimpse espadrilles, flats, sandals, stilettos, or wedges; necessities be damned! My eyes shimmer, my heart flutters, and within two hours, I’m reorganizing my closet because last week’s pair has new neighbors.

These seductive Michael Kors Platform Pumps ($175) will vamp up your classy black pencil skirt and blouse to brush off that perfect amount of sexy yet strong look. 

I love these Kate Spade New York Pointed Toe Pumps ($298) that would easily go great with a LBD or blouse and pencil skirt. 

Totally swear that I am obsessed with wedges and not afraid to admit it. I NEED these Ralph Lauren Dawn High Heel Wedges ($109) in my closet pronto!
DVF knows just what she is doing when designing the latest fashion must-haves. Grab a pair of these sophisticated Diane von Furstenberg Camilla Zipper Booties ($325) and make them your fall staple.

Adore these Boutique 9 Platform Pumps ($150), which are essential for any ensemble that requires a little sparkle. Lets be honest, what outfit doesn't require a little sparkle anyway!
