Would You Dare To Wear?

Leighton Meester's lace Marchesa jumpsuit. Do you love it or hate it?

I'm pretty in to it. It would be nice if it left a little more to the imagination, but the sweet yet naughty edginess of black lace always appeals to me. Even though it should be too much, the vintage, almost burlesque sexiness makes it work. It's different than anything I've seen lately, while still remaining really current.
I don't know if I'd ever have the cajones to wear it, but my inner skank is giving this two thumbs up.

Who Wore It Best? Ciara VS. Kim K.

Kim Kardashian and Ciara both wear a dress from Carven's Fall 2010 line. Kim in Paris, Sept. 16th, Ciara in NYC Oct. 25th.

Damn! Down to the shoes and everything! I honestly want to hand this one to Ciara, as a curvy girl myself I know sometimes all that ruffle and poof just makes you look a bit too "fluffy".
However, Something inside me just won't allow me to let Ciara to get away with this one...even the same shoes? A month and a half later? They're friends, they hang out! She should have damn well known what this would look like!
I'm all for sharing a deal with a friend, but they don't need deals, and this is the red carpet we're talking about. I'm saying, what part of the game is scrap collecting? Pure chickenheadry. The dress isn't even that hot to be digging through your homegirls salvation army bags like that.

Kim, you win this round.

Racism and Cupcakes?

This controversial Duncan Hines commercial has been getting pulled after multiple complaints that the advertisement is blatantly racist.
It probably is, but it seems more ignorant and insensitive to me than anything. I don't really think there was a conspiracy to hold people down through use of cupcakes. What do you think?

Essie Winter Collection

This past year I've been really into nail polish colors. They're an easy and inexpensive way to stay on trend, while still being subtle, so you don't end up looking like a fashion victim.

Luckily nail polish colors are released in collections every season, just like clothing, which completely takes the guesswork out of choosing the hottest current shades. By the time I make my way through each seasons collection a new one is coming out right on its heels.

The two collections I always look out for are Essie and Opi, so I was really excited to see that Essie has revealed their Winter collection. Including Going Incognito: Deep emerald green, Luxedo: Deepest plum, Masquerade Belle: Black ruby, Silken Cord: Risque red, Hot Coco: Tawny sepia, and Smokin' Hot: Stone-cold fox gray.

Personally I am all about Smokin' Hot and Masquerade Belle right now. How about you?

Too Much "Heat" For T.V.?

The commercial for Beyonce's fragrance has been banned from showing during the daytime in the U.K. because people were complaining that it was too sexually provocative.

I don't think its any worse than a music video, although once or twice I was pretty sure I was about to catch a nip slip. I don't know what type of tape she uses but her girls always almost pop out, yet never do...hmm.

Either way this is definitely a case of all press being good press. Doesn't it just make you want to watch the commercial more now?!
Check it out below.

Step By Step Guide On How Not To Get Trampled.

Yeah, that's right. This ish is so serious that you need a guide to shopping!

H&M is launching Lanvin for H&M November 20th. Since the collection is in very high demand, we’re expecting a crowd.

What do I do if I arrive before opening hours?

If there is a line, please wait in line, and H&M store staff will inform you on how to shop.

How does the queuing system work?

The first 320 in line will receive one of 16 different colored bracelets, 20 people for each bracelet color; on the bracelet you will be given a specific time for shopping in our designated area. The bracelets are only needed for the women’s collection. Customers buying the men’s collection will not require a bracelet.

When your time slot arrives, you will enter the designated area to shop for 15 minutes. Our goal is to create a better shopping experience for our customers.

If you are not one of the first 320 in line, you will of course have the opportunity to shop from the rest of the collection or within H&M. When the 16 groups have finished their shopping, we will also open up a designated area for all our customers.

To make sure as many customers as possible are able to buy the collection, we have a shopping limit. Every customer can buy from the entire collection, but with a limit of purchasing two pieces per product i.e. not more than two sizes (shoes/garments) or pieces (accessories) per product per customer. The shopping limit covers the entire Lanvin for H&M collection. Your place in line does not guarantee any items from the Lanvin for H&M collection.

Sigh...the guys that are interested are in luck. Hmph! Men don't need bracelets...
Now you need to now where to shop. Not all locations will carry the collection. Form a strategy on which location will be less likely to have you in an altercation.
