I don't think I have EVER been so excited by a sunglass collection before!! The A-Morir Collection by Kerin.Rose has really changed the face of sunglasses...literally. I know a lot are not very practical and more for editorial but I really love them all...inspired for rock stars, made for rock stars...I just think all the crazy embellishments are so much fun!!

It is around this time every year that I decide to start using some type of self tanner...for some reason I usually hold out because every year I convince myself that I love being as pale as I am...(and I DO)...BUT then I start to realize that my legs look like veal cutlets (or maybe summer sausages are a better visual). If I decide to wear a skirt it shouldn't be as horrible experience as looking at a plain white sheet of paper outside on a very sunny day...BLINDING! So I start with my legs, then I think "Well I should do a little on my arms"..then I'm like "Wow my face is soooo friggen white"...then I am completely covered with self tanner from head to toe and obsessed with applying it almost daily for the rest of the summer. Here are my current crushes..
This is a tinted gel from L'OREAL...it's temporary and washes off with soap and water. I love this because it is instant and sets really dry and does not come off on your clothes. You can keep reapplying to achieve the desired color and if you mess up you can just wipe it off with a soapy clothe. I used to use a product like this in the early 90's...I loved it and I am glad to see that they are around again.
The biggest thing that bugs me about self tanners is the smell...but I just found this Neutrogena Sun Fresh...seriously the best smelling lotion ever!! Grapefruit and nectarine!!!! And it is fantastic for fair complexions!
This is my little makeup secret...Hoola by Benefit I have been using for a few years now. It is a bronzing powder but without the shimmer (brilliant!)...so you can apply it all over your face for a great tanned look!! LOOOOVE!

I just recently watched "Too Hot To Handle" with Jayne Mansfield from 1960 and besides being completely mesmerised by Miss Mansfield...I couldn't help thinking of the Givenchy Haute Couture Fall 2010 line. Show girl in full effect...fringe, shimmer, sparkle and sheer materials in precarious places....
They just don't make them like this anymore...
Two looks from Givenchy Haute Couture Fall 2010...high class show girls? P.S. Could these girls show any more enthusiasm !??! A little more emotion girls...come on...anything!!

Oh yes my dahlings, summer is here...and it is a mind splintering 2,000 degrees out!!! Well maybe not THAT hot! No matter what the weather though, I like to keep my look in perfect check...and I don't know about you but I don't particularly like when it looks like my face is sliding off. One of my all time favorite products to prevent this is Benefit's Dr. Feelgood Complexion Balm. For years I was on the lookout for a product to make my face shine retardant that wasn't too thick like most. Finally I found this little gem...Dr. Feelgood is silky smooth, light as air, prevents facial slip and slide and LASTS!!! Oh and the packaging is super cute! Save your faces ladies!!

I have been swooning over all the recent Givenchy wedges for a little while now...KNOWING I will never be able to afford them, I was incredibly elated when I saw that Jeffrey Campbell had a pair very (VERY) similar. I had to have them!! I just received them a couple weeks ago and I have been wearing them all the time. They are gigantic. I swear that I am over 6 feet tall in them...I think they are approximately a gazillion inches high! Now I have been obsessed with being this tall and I want all my shoes this high! Things look different from up here....
The REAL Givenchys...See!! I told you they were practically the same!!

I have a bit of the taste for the macabre, always fascinated by the morbid, I believe everyone is in some way or another...No longer just reserved for the obvious rebel but now everyone can release their inner goth

Lillian Crowe Bronze Ribcage Necklace
Alexander McQueen Cut-out Skull Heels...Oh So delicate...
Untamed Menagerie Stainless Steel Skull Cut-out Pendant

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you have a great day...here are some pics I took a little while back and I thought they seemed appropriate for the holiday!!
This is a little H&M polka dot dress that I purchased moons ago... I wear it ALL the time...nice light cotton...accessorized with my own leather leaf necklace, white vintage scarf, and orangey- red vintage sandals
This crazy number is from the John Paul Gaultier for Target Collection...I love it! It is insanely comfortable and I love the giant piece of fabric that cuts the skirt into shorts. I feel like I am in an old bathing suit from the 20's when I wear it...accessorized with my own tiny leather dagger earrings and a double raw citrine wrapped necklace by Lauran Shaner
***All firework and star stickers are from the wonderful photo enhancing website PicNik...I use it all the time, you can upload photos and manipulate them with different effects...it pretty much rocks my world!!***
