I survived the MISSONI + Target = PANDAMONIUM!!!!!!!

Just survived the attack on LA in the West Hollywood branch of Target! Anyone who was anyone in the fashion world, who paid attention, who was on top of the debut of Missoni for Target, was waiting for the store opening!!  I called Target the night before to see if they were opening early, and they said “regular shopping hours”- which meant 8am. I set my alarm for 7, got Starbucks, and arrived at Target at 7:30….. this is what I saw:

The lines were SNAKING around the outside, with security keeping people in line. So unfortunately for us, that meant we were probably about #499 in line… While waiting, EVERYONE was buzzing about how this morning Target’s site CRASHED because of the frenzy… No one could buy anything online (that means YOU New York!! Ahead of the game!)  🙂 People were up at 5 AM buying!!!

Talked to the lady behind us with a little girl, who told us today was her “first day of school”, but this Missoni release was more important- L.O.V.E her!!!  We wished her luck (hope she got plenty of girl’s clothes!).  Then we got inside, and the CRAZINESS WAS EVERYWHERE!!!!!!

People were CRAZY! Basically FASHION ZOMBIES! The Clusterf*** of carts, running, and the fact that some boxes hadn’t yet been open- O.O.C!! (out of control). In the kitchen ware area, we MOBBED the Target employees opening a box of plates and glasses… it was empty within 60 seconds!

We were then running down an aisle and saw a deserted cart with plates- we looked around, saw no one, and grabbed them. Seconds later, a lady came down the aisle screaming, “Those are my plates!” We yelled back,” You shouldn’t desert your cart!” As we gave them back to her, she ALMOST STARTED CRYING, saying,”that’s all I could grab”. We told her,”Listen, you hold on to those, and don’t leave that cart out of your site”, and ran to find the bedding. Unfortunately, everything was WIPED OUT.

This was once the home of the Cosmetic Pouches ...

As we checked out with our small bundle, we saw some of the “first in line” shoppers items:

This lady SCORED!

The woman in front of us had the bicycle, pillows, platters… everything she wanted (lucky b****!!) I KNEW we should have been there at 6am!!!

Here’s what we got:

Not as much as we wanted, but glad we got something! 3 SETS of glasses,  3 serving plates, a media box, and matching desktop note-pad I found abandoned on a checkout shelf.

When we got outside, we took a deep breath, and decided to immediately check the website- IT WAS UP AND RUNNING!!!! We added MORE ITEMS we wanted to our “cart”, paid, and YAY- ORDERED!!!!!!!!!

There are a few things that are STILL SOLD OUT that we want, but I wil be checking that site and stores throughout the next couple days in HOPE of getting the rest. Good job Missoni- you just made HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS I’m sure!

Got home, and had to set the table with our pre-existing Missoni floral chargers… here’s a sneak peak!

Ps: I tweeted to Ms. Margherita (@mmmargherita) a link to this article and photo- and she loved it! 🙂



The above image was captured in the Beverly Center, at a HIGH-FASHION DESIGNER BOUTIQUE.  When you go to the Beverly Center; it is a planned trip. You don’t just STUMBLE into this mall because you see something in a window. It is an EXCURSION. The 5 floors of parking, the 3 levels of shopping, …. it can be an ordeal. So when some lady is seen here INSIDE the Beverly Center, IN a SPORTS-BRA, POST-WORKOUT, it describes one thing about her: NO CLASS!!

I can see this being ok if she was post Yoga class on Melrose, saw something in a window, and made a quick dash inside. ( I CAN TRY TO FATHOM THIS…)

Not ONLY does she have NO CLASS, she started TRYING ON CLOTHES! STUPID B****! YOU’RE SWEATY!!! After she saw (and tried on) a jacket, she said to her much-older-man-counterpart, “Oh look, it matches the interior of your Bentley!” STUPID HOE. If you are living this “life of leisure”, driving around with some sugar daddy, then TAKE THE TIME TO GO HOME, SHOWER, and CHANGE!!!!

NO REAL WOMAN WITH CLASS, DIGNITY, and MORALS would leave the house and GO TO THE MALL in a SPORTS-BRA!!!!


Halloween 2010: Scary vs. Sexy

Halloween is BY FAR my favorite day of the year… you can be ANYONE YOU WANT TO BE! How fun and rare is that? So of course I delved full force into this years costume, and couldn’t wait to see what others came up with. Unfortunately, some people cross the line with their costume descisions…. Here are some highlights of the BEST and WORST… But be prepared for some NEAR NUDITY!

MY FAVORITE OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! An “Hermes Birkin Bag” and “Chanel Bag”… and look who they are with.. “ANNA WINTOUR” !!!!  I think this was not only the most fashionable costume, but definitly the most original… and PERFECT for my site!

Here’s an unfortunate site…. not only for this guy, but our eyes…. they are still burning. Not only from the lime green, but a body that needs to cover up! We all know he’s going as Borat, but even still- inappropriate!  Thank God he’s being arrested for public indecency, because this is not a “costume”… this is a CRIME!

Loved this one… from “The Hangover”. Why? Because he paid ATTENTION TO DETAIL, and got the look PERFECTLY COPIED! I love when people take the time to be perfectionists, and really, REALLY get the look right! Even the baby has a medical marijuana prescription attached to him! This outfit should be appreciated by the movie’s stylist.

Once again!!! ANOTHER guy going WAAY overboard!  I know that Halloween is usually known as the day “all girls can dress up like sluts and get away with it”,.. but apparently, the guys are thinking they can do the same thing. WLTY moment right here… was it a dare? was he wasted when he picked this out? Im all about showing off a body, but this “THING” holding on to his crotch for dear life is just SCARY and TACKY. Can u imagine if the string snapped?? HE HAS NO BACKUP! Plus, the obvious: doesn’t look like he’s packing very much, so definitly, SOMEONE LIED TO HIM!

This Tampon outfit, hoever brilliantly made… is DISGUSTING. REALLY? WITH BLOODY STRINGS? How trashy is this?????  NO CLASS, and for sure, will NOT BE TAKING HOME ANY WOMEN. Good luck to this tool for mating, I bet he’s as juvenile out of costume. Put your creativity to good use, this is just GROSS.

THIS IS THE WORST LADY GAGA EVER. REALLY??? Is that the best she could do? BOOOORING!!!! Out of all Lady Gaga outfits to choose, it’s this simple ugly thing? A) she would never wear that ugly braided belt. B) the wig would AT LEAST be brushed! I think this outfit is just an INSULT to Ms. Gaga.

THIS is a girl who got it RIGHT!!!! NOT ONLY does she show her inspiration, BUT is Dressing up as a Style Icon! This is Miss Rita, of www.LikeLola.ning.com, and she captured a youthful modern fun version of “Bianca Jagger at Studio54 on her 30th birthday”… how clever is that? With the pink riding horse?  Check out her site for amazing fashions, (as well as her infamous love of pink) 🙂 

And last, but not least… ME! haha…. since I got married this year, what better way to celebrate than being a version of one’s self? Take a note girls: THIS is how its done- skin: tan, smooth, and shimmery. Hair: blonde, long, beautiful curls, and full of shine. Jewelry- beautiful, timeless, and not overdone! And of course, feature ur best “asset”… (mine are the legs), so go ahead and show them!!!!! And to finish, the perfect red carpet pose and smile!! 🙂 Hope you all had a Happy Halloween!


This is big news people! A marriage is happening here, and I am so HAPPY to spread the JOYOUS news!

I COULDN’T AGREE MORE! Of course I try to find the beauty in everyone; their style, confidence, self expression…. but most often, it’s just TOO DAMN UGLY OUT THERE! It’s like GILT and I just got MARRIED! Oh, the JOY of Loving to hate something ugly…

DEATH to those who BUNGEE (jump)

I went to brunch today, and thought my lack of mimosa carafe was making me hallucinate this image.  There, at the table next to us, was a woman who’s purse strap was missing, and IN IT’S PLACE: A F****** BUNGEE CORD. And not just a regular bungee cord, but one with KNOTS IN IT!!!!At first, I thought, “okay, maybe it’s just an ugly purse”…. but no, the BUNGEE CORD was PURPOSELY FIXED onto the missing strap’s rings! The hooks bent arount the rings as to not detatch…. I asked my friends,” please tell me that’s not the purse’s style”, and they confirmed: NOPE. IT WAS A HOME-MADE REPLACEMENT STRAP.

WHYYYYY???? WHO LIED TO YOU??????  What this lady COULD have done, AND SHOULD HAVE DONE, was just leave the original strap off, AND CARRY IT AS A CLUTCH!! 

And I don’t want to hear: “not everyone can just go out and buy a new purse”, “maybe she can’t afford a new one right now”, etc…. BECAUSE WHERE WE ATE BRUNCH, and the PRICE OF A MEAL, SHE COULD EITHER BUY: 3 BAGS at H&M, 2 BAGS at some Melrose store, or 1 bag @ Zara.

SEE?? BETTER OPTIONS THEN A BUNGEE-CORD-WITH-KNOTS-“wow, I made it myself”-PURSE STRAP. (Ugh…………..the disgust………)

New Spice Girl? “Sporty Sparkles!”

Sooo……  This pic was sent to me by a reader, with the following quote: “Obviously she is closeted, because that’s where she must have gotten dressed tonight‏”. (For all the non-gays, no, this is NOT a woman, just appears to be half dressed as one, ergo, the comment).  Reader follows up with: “She needs a light and a mirror and a thread and needle.”

I AGREE. WHAT is this? Is this even an OUTFIT? I mean, in all sense of the title of this website: WHO LIED TO YOU??!?!?!?!?! This person is wearing a SEQUINED TOP (with a gaping hole in the shoulder) shorts, and THE BRIGHTEST PAIR of FLORESCENT YELLOW running shoes!!!!! WTF?

Did he compete in a SPORTY SPICE contest at West Hollywood club? Minus the wig,  this would basically be a Mel C outfit…. (gotta wear those trainers!) What’s even worse, I don’t know ANY SINGLE PERSON who would wear this, any part of this, or be associated with this.

WHO LET YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE LIKE THIS??? WHO SAID TO YOU “OMG, YOU LOOK SO GOOD!” Obviously not a nice friend. Maybe the person got dressed alone, (LORD help him PLEASE!) but there is no excuse! Look, he has friends around him! They are BAD PEOPLE for LYING to this poor individual with HORRIBLE “taste”.

PLEASE,  SOMEONE tell him the TRUTH!!!!! This is DEFINITLY up for WORST of the YEAR!!!!
