New York bargains!

If you’ve been around the city a few times, you may know where to shop for great deals. For me, it’s usually the thrift stores or Broadway in Soho. Yes, there are the occasional boutiques that sell white T-shirts for 100 bucks, but if you are down in that general area, you should hit up Mystique. Great, cheap clothes.

I purchased the green dress for $25.00… then I saw practically the same thing at another store for $88 bucks!!!! So, yes, it does pay to shop around!!! Literally.

Hit or Miss?

March 8, 2007

I went shopping at Urban Outfitters in Union Square this weekend. For the most part when I go shopping there, I fall in love with pretty much everything in sight. On this particular day, I had a hard time finding something that caught my eye. Here’s what I found:

Eco – Friendly Trends!

March 6, 2007

 

Doesn’t it feel nice to help the environment?

Totally Bamboo

Bamboo is the new wood. Here are just some of the eco – friendly qualities of bamboo and why you should use it. First off, its a 100% renewable resource, its harder and denser than most hard wood (16% harder than maple, to be exact), after harvesting, bamboo grows back and can be re – harvested every 4.5 years (Most hardwood takes 30 – 60 years per cycle). So do the world a favor, do bamboo!

Soy candles are way better than regular wax candles. Why? First off, they are clean burning, so no more black residue and less pollutants contaminating the air. They last about 50% longer than wax candles because they burn at a lower temperature, they burn completely so you don’t waste any of the wax, and last but not least, if they spill, you can clean up with soap and water.

It’s not what you wear. It’s how you wear it.

“BOHO CHIC”

“PREPPY”

“PUNK ROCK”

Throughout the last few decades, fashion has taken the wildest ride. From punk to preppy, funky to chic, retro to hip hop, there is always something new style ready to take over the last trend. I strongly believe that fashion is really just a state of mind. I overheard someone the other day saying that they loved this new retro looking dress, but just couldn’t pull it off.

I wanted to yell at her and say YES YOU CAN!!! There are millions of people wearing retro and to tell you the truth, half of them don’t look good in it, but they pull it off because when they wear it, their attitude is, I look damn good in this and I don’t care what you think.

So for all you insecure fashion addicts, go out there, buy what you like and most importantly own it.

That’s your lesson for today.

The UK’s best kept secret….

March 5, 2007

…until now.hm.jpg

Years ago when I’d visit my relatives in London, I’d look forward to hit the streets of London and get my shop on. I’d hit up stores like Top Shop, Selfridges and of course, H&M. I’d come back to LA as the best dressed fashion victim around. And now, H&M is all over the place in the US.

This weekend, I could not escape H&M. It haunted me on every block I walked on. If you’ve never been to an H&M, stop reading my blog now and GO. But of course you’ve been to one — unless of course you live in Antartica. They have the best clothes for work, hanging out and all around ANYTHING, and they are sold at a cheap price. Though this is one of my new favorite store, and its not my best kept secret anymore!

Furry hats… who said this was cool??

March 2, 2007

russianhats.jpgrussianhats2.jpg

As I walk along the streets of the oh – so – trendy and fashionable New York City, I am floored by the amount of people I see wearing these hats. Yes, I admit, its cold outside. It’s damn cold. And if that the ONLY reason people wear this, then I guess… I guess.. that’s ok. But no, I think its because someone told them this looks good. Let me set the record straight. This does NOT look good and is NOT a trend. So do not be fooled by those people who are trying to make this happen. Don’t you agree???

And the only reason why the picture of the baby is so cute is because the baby himself is cute.

Fashion Trend: Wide Trousers… Thank God.

March 1, 2007

The wide trousers are back this Spring season. Lucky for us. I hate the fact that guys can always get away with wearing comfortable loose fitting pants. Well guess what… so can we! Gap as well as other major companies have started manufacturing wide fitting trousers! Now this is a trend that I will happily embrace!
