Luxurious Skull

For the Love of God

This is a Damien Hirst sculpture of a human skull cast in platinum. Yes, those are all flawless ethically sourced diamonds. The skull is encrusted with 8,601 diamonds. The icy head was reported to have sold for $122 million to an anonymous buyer.
The skull is showcasing its original teeth. But if you ask me it is definitely missing...

Dance Party!

DJ AM was playing a set in Houston. My friend had way too
many tickets. I decided to go out one last time before I start
school this Monday.


He once dated super model Jessica Stam.


Kounthear and Mikey

Slim Thug was there and these are some really funny pictures.

So Icy!

This was the best ending to the night. $6 cheese pizza!

These Pashmina scarves are at the Kroger's on Montrose
and Hawthorne. My friend Whitney told me about them.
I think they are fabulous and a fun addition to any outfit.

I have two I bought in NY. I will post pictures another day.
By the way, if you have any fashion dilemmas or questions feel free to

All Black, All Chic

I can't help but wear all black sometimes. Okay, most of the time.
I have been yearning for these tights for quite some time now.
They are perfect for adding some texture to a boring monotone outfit.

Lamé High-Waisted Legging $44.00

Shiny Nylon Tricot Legging

Just keep it classy and cover that booty!
Here are a few examples of texture from The Sartorialist:

Think elegant and sophisticated as opposed to grim and morbid.

On Point: Katie Holmes

I never cared much about Katie Holmes and I try not
to blog about celebrities. However, this look is just
flawless. Everything from the Lanvin dress to those
famous red soles is on point.

Oh, and the Posh bob is rather boring. Add some fun to
it with bangs. I love this cut. It is classic and daring.


How far would you go to save your I-Phone?

Style On A Budget: Old Navy Chic

I randomly checked the Old Navy site and was surprised to find some
really cute things. We can thank Old Navy's new creative director,
Todd Oldham, for the sophisticated and fresh styles offered.

The following items can translate from casual work attire to fun party outfits.
Wrap-Front Shirts $24.50
This shirt is universally flattering for all figures. The deep V elongates
the neck and body giving the illusion of height especially when paired
with a great pair of heels.

Double-Ruffle Tops $26.50
This blush colored top is very sophisticated. You should not accessorize the neck
given that there is so much detail already going on. I would suggest a bold
bracelet or plenty of bangles.

Trapeze Shift Dress

You can't go wrong with a little black dress especially when it is a classic silhouette
such as this trapeze dress. This dress will work year round depending on how you
accessorize. There are countless ways to accessorize whether you use jewelry, scarves
or a killer pair of heels.
