Later alligator...

It seems that those who strive to become fashionable seek not to prove themselves as trendy by owning the best and wearing the best but they prove themselves as fashionistas by criticizing what they view as "unfashionable".

Case in point (and a very tired, tired point) is the donning of crocs. Now let's be honest here, just because you're aware that a hideous brand of shoe isn't fashionable does not make you the King of Couture.

I mean crocs were never intended to be fashionable and were a shoe of great utility - so it's just really tired when people on twitter are always tweeting about how horrid crocs are. It's just really tired.

Although...the croc brand was never JUST limited to dowdy old pieces of plastic that resembled old wooden clogs - the brand has so much more to offer in the way of cute pumps, hot boots and these "sexi sandals" ....

Anyway...Later alligators.

(P.S. maybe if crocs were made out of alligator, things would be a whole lot different!)

I'm all a-flutter...


They say birds of a feather flock together - and whoever "they" are... "they" would be damn right. It's just the social construct of society that underpins who we spend all our time with, and that's why you should only associate with the most sophisticated of society.

The only way to show your sophistication is to show your plumage...

Why not be avantgarde and eccentric and take your plumage to the bedroom (so to speak) in the form of this quirky lamp shade...


Lampshades, jackets and shoes. Time to get your peacock out and own that scene...

Beautiful beards

Beards don't get the recognition they ought to! Here is a photo spread of some of the most beautiful beards!

Perfect Paris

So I know that the thought of Paris Whitney Hilton causes most peoples' skins to crawl with absolute frustration and dislike but it has to be agreed upon that her sense of style is really simple yet beautiful. Okay so she doesn't ALWAYS look good and her actions and behaviour may sometimes outweigh her well-put-together looks but I still think her sense of style is really great!

Check out a few of my favourite outfits below...

Bohemian Chic !

Always a good idea to match your car...

Pretty in pink

Every girl should own an LBD!

Nicky & Paris Hilton - casual chic

Paris looks like someone out of Dallas - it works for her though
Simple elegance

White is definitely Paris' colour

Swimming Trunks for men!

Okay so the Summer season is almost (yes almost!) upon us in the Southern Hemisphere and I have been trying to find the perfect swimming attire. So the speedo and the tight shorts / swimming boxer brief looking trunks are out... But what do you think about these golden swimming trunks from American Apparel? I think they're rather different and they are sure to get you noticed on the beach!

All that glitters is gold ! Love these!
These golden trunks sell on American Apparel for $36 dollars! The purchase will be totally worth it !

If you're not into something as risque and daring as these trunks, then why not try the safer option below...
The perfect swimming trunks!

I would choose the golden trunks over any speedo-ish costume... Some of the swimwear on American Apparel should be removed... case in point below!

No way!

Not even if you have the hottest body!
Choosing the right swim wear is so hard...! 

Good luck and have fun in the sun (with sun screen of course!)

Elizabeth Arden!

One of Elizabeth Arden's skin products I swear by is Elizabeth Arden 8 hour skin protectant! Use it on absolutely everything from dry skin, dark circles under your eyes, sun burn and even dry lips! Such a versatile product!
The skin protectant retails for about 17 dollars!

Here's what Elizabeth Arden's website says about the product: "It's great on the elbows and cuticles, it heals, moisturizes and soothes. It reverses the dryness in the skin; especially during cold weather it's terrific. It gives that beautiful, healthy and natural look to the skin"

Go get it !

Hair Accessories

I have discovered one of the cutest and most fashionable ways to spruce up your hair if you have very little time to do so! I've spotted quite a few women with designer accessories in their hair! The addition of a Chanel Alice band or Fendi Clip is the perfect way to keep your tresses in place!

Take the Spring/Summer 2008 picture showing a lovely head band!
