Fashion-Steve Madden Shoes

Ok I have a pair of Steve Madden shoes, and no where to wear them. I love these shoes and I've had them for over a year, and never ever wore them! And if I never wear them, I will never part with them. Tell me what you would wear with them, and where you would wear them.

Discoveries-Market Street

There is a gem of a place, right in the heart of Inglewood, California. That place is historic in every way! It is Market Street. I was there today; I go there because of a beauty supply store that I discovered. This beauty supply has everything you could ever need, and it is a very large store. So I go and make my purchase of things that I needed, which was, my very first lace front wig. I will take pictures of me in the wig for a future post. Well as I completed my purchase, I proceed outside, and I saw the most beautiful buildings! This street has been here since the1940's and the buildings are gorgeous-very art deco. So I had to take pictures and share them with you. The jewel on the whole street is the old Fox Theater, wow she speaks volumes, she's like a great movie star that will live on in every ones memories! She is tired though and in need of a face lift, and I discovered (with a little research) that she just might get that long deserved renovation! I also discovered that the current owner is a former NFL linebacker, Mark Fields. I took pictures of a few other buildings, on Market Street, and had a great time discovering little sweet treasures today!

Fashion Show - Moschino Cheap And Chic

Oh my!! I saw the most adorable collection ever! It was whimsical and animated but a lot of the clothes I honestly could see myself wearing. This collection put a smile on my face. I'm not going to say anything more about it, I think you should watch it for yourself and tell me what you think.

So cute!

Fashion Week - Front Row

Do you ever wonder who really sits in the front row of fashion shows during Fashion Week, I know I do! I remember watching Sex In The City the movie, Samantha got tickets for the girls to attend a fashion show during fashion week, Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte where so impressed to be setting on the front row. What's up with the front row, besides being able to see better then those in the back rows, and who gets to sit in those seats? Well with a little research I found out!

The A-List reads like a who's who in fashion and in Hollywood, beginning with Anna Wintour (I think she is great at what she does) editor and chief of Vogue US, Joe Zee editor and chief of Elle US and Harper's Bazaar US, and there are several more influential editors that are also on that list. Along side the editors are trendsetting stylist like Marie Amelie Sauve of Vogue Paris and Italia and Grace Coddington of Vogue US. There are powerful buyers and popular bloggers to add to the front row also! Blogger Tavi Gevinson, Style Rookie is the name of her blog, and the fascinating thing about her is, she's only 13! Another blogger who gets invited to sit in the front row is Bryanboy, blog by the same name. Now who are the celebrities who frequent the front row of these fashion shows? Well, there are any number of celebs, the list is so long I can only list a few. The following celebs have been seen on the front row; Sarah Jessica Parker, Pamela Anderson, Victoria (Posh) Beckham, Claudia Schiffer, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rihanna.

The reason the front row is so hot, is the designer’s clothes. The designers’, need the A-list to influence the public to buy their clothes, because celeb opinions do matter, they are placed in the front row because of who they are and strength of their public appeal. There are only four weeks that will influence the way we dress from season to season, and there is no other event that will have the same impact on fashion-as Fashion Week. So the A-list is on hand to promote it, to experience the sites and sounds of the latest outfits for the upcoming season, and to socialize with one another.

Super Star Makeup Artist - Pat McGrath

Enough can't be said for a makeup genius like Pat McGrath. She is the hardest working and always in demand makeup artist in the world! I admire her ability to create new looks that are whimsical, inspirational and beautiful. I ask myself "what is her secret?" All who come in contact with her say she is the best in the industry and models embrace her with great admiration. That's just who Ms. McGrath is, a real person with a creative soul. I am an aspiring makeup artist, a neophyte in this fantastic industry and I hope to be half as good as Ms. McGrath! She inspires me to reach the heights she has achieved. I hope to get there some day, it would be a surreal dream come true. I will be keeping a sharp eye on this very special lady. Ms. McGrath, I have my running shoes on and I'm right behind you!

Fashion Show - Oscar de La Renta

Oscar de La Renta

I have two words that describes this designers impeccable taste and that is class and sophistication. His spring 2010 collection was breath taking to say the least! From teal to orange and oh yes lets not forget black, his clothes spoke volumes. The many textures gave each piece a life of it's own. I saw pieces that could be worn by all ages, the versatility in this collection was almost endless.


Cosmetic Review - Eye Shadow Primer

Ok I just had to do a review on Urban Decays Primer Potion! I can't hear enough about this product! I watch a lot of YouTube makeup tutorials and almost if not everyone mentions this product. I haven't tried it yet but mark my words I plan on buying some in the very near future! You use this product to prep your eyelids for eyeshadow application. It keeps your eyeshadow from creasing also your eyeshadow will last all day, it gives your eyeshadow a more vibrant and lasting color. The genie in these bottles is silicone which makes your application smooth and silky. I have to get some! I will give you my review on just how good it is in a future post. Tell me what you think of this product if you have it in your makeup arsenal.

Cosmetic Review - Foundation

Pure Makeup Foundation by Maybelline

I think this is one of the best foundations I have used on my skin. I have oily skin and this shine-free foundation is mostly water based and formulated not to clog your pores with unwanted oils which can cause breakouts! It is easy to apply and goes on smooth without blotching or streaking.

Try it and tell me what you think.

Fashion Show - Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren

One of my favorite designers and his spring 2010 collection is retro yet up to date, with his metallic fabrics and his ultra fem florals, he whisked me back to the 1920's. His pin striped suit reminded me of Bonnie and Clyde or the movie the Great Gatsby. The floral dresses where to die for, sexy yet very feminine. The overalls where fun, worn and looked very comfortable. This spring collection was a play on the past yet it had something new to offer. The makeup was a daytime look, rosy cheeks and a soft rose lip along with a very subtile smokey eye the look was minimal which complemented every piece in the collection. This collection moved me emotionally and I always say if you aren't touched emotionally by something it may not be for you!

I hope you enjoy the show as much as I did!
