Things That Caught My Eye

When the news hit the stands that Lanvin and H&M were collaborating, SQUEEEES were heard around the world.
We have heard here that the full collection will feature 30 pieces and 15 accessories for woman, and 25 pieces and 10 accessories for men which will be released in November. H&M here I come!!!
In traditional Lanvin style-the frocks, big sunglasses and blown out hair-I would have never guessed these weren’t true Lanvin couture ads.

Marie Claire Magazine must be scrounging for fillers.


Should Fatties Get a Room? (Even on TV?) gives us one bloggers opinion that A. Fat people are not attractive to watch on TV and B They should man up and lose the weight ‘cause it’s really just, “mind over matter.”

Cuteness personified!!! Fun farm animals cake pops (cupcakes on a stick), from baking blogger Angie Dudley’s new book, Cake Pops by Bakerella.

When I heard Sephora has an iphone app I scoured the web ‘cause damn it…I own a Blackberry. They say you can use the mobile site but it’s not really the same thing.
:( Come on Sephora…make your Blackberry users happy and give us our own app. 

Taylor Swift songs' new hidden messages Taylor Swift seems to be speaking in code on her new album Speak Now. I admit, I first laughed when I heard the song, “Dear John” was about John Mayer. But as I read more of the article I got to thinking that 1. this girl has had a lot of relationships. and 2. is it really good to be publically sharing all your private thoughts like this? I can’t help but think this will bite her in the butt later in life.

Potter Dress                                       McQueen Dress

French designer Jany Terimie outfitted the characters in the final Harry Potter movie, including a scene in which bride Fleur Delacour dances with Bill Weasley wearing a frothy organza dress with two phoenixes. Jamy Terimie is cited as saying. “Fleur’s dress is made in organza and decorated with a pair of phoenixes that face one another on the bodice and form the silhouette of a heart. I chose the phoenix because, like love, it is eternal.”

What’s the prob you ask? Well, the Harry Potter dress looks remarkably like a dress from Alexander McQueen's iconic fall '08 collection. And there are many hard core McQueen fans that are going to notice that Jemy didn’t give credit where credit is do. I’ll let you be the judge, but this fashionista thinks that there was more then “magic” going on here.

Oh you are SO RIGHT about that McQueen dress!!! McQueen fans are going to flip out all over it, especially if Jamy is not giving credit to the fact that it's inspired by the McQueen version.

So this Taylor Swift thing. Writing songs about your exes is NEVER a good idea and I wish someone would guide her on this. It worked for Karly Simon and that's about it. Also, now this week, there is a new story that has her dating Jake Gyllenhaal complete with pictures. Girl needs to slow her roll.
