The New Paris?

August 10, 2006

As I was browsing through the word press blogs, I came across Social Rank (a blog I instantly fell in love with) and more specifically, the “Ivanka’s Blonde Ambitions” post. Included are two pictures of Ivanka posing in barely there clothing for Stuff Magazine:


The premise is that Ivanka is following the teeny bopper trend (the Nicole Richie’s and Paris Hilton’s of the world) and debasing her Wharton educated self. To be perfectly clear on the issue, I happen to love Nicole Richie. I know, it’s disgusting of me. But I’ll be the first to admit that there’s a distinct difference between Nicole and Ivanka. Ivanka was the embodiment of every women’s dream – a beautiful and educated woman. She grew up in a priveleged home, but that doesn’t make her achievements any less significant. Flaunting herself on the cover of Stuff magazine certainly does. She’s joined the ranks of all the other attention craving women. Ivanka, we expected more of you.

adore you.


Fall is all about…well, Plaid

August 10, 2006

Ready for fall? In addition to the stovepipe jeans, the high waisted trousers, and the frilled shirts you’re bound to buy, invest in a few plaid pieces…because plaid is back. As always. Every year fashion magazines and divas alike scream “plaid” – isn’t it obvious already? Plaid is fall. We know, we’re armed and ready. But, just incase your closet is out of ammunition here are a few designer pieces you may fancy, oh and I’ve added a few that will be sure to leave some spare change in your wallet.

Up first is a plaid dress by LAMB. I hate to admit, since I really hate singers/actors turned pseudo designer but Gwen Stefani’s brand really grew on me. The dress, complete with silk lining, retails for $365.00.


Yes, the price is daunting. Check out Arden B.’s version for less than half the price, $128.00 to be exact.

Combine two of fall’s upcoming trends: plaid and ruffles with Diane von Furstenberg’s latest tafetta blouse. Made of 100% silk, the blouse is completely versatile. Dress it up with a pencil skirt and a wedge, or keep it casual by pairing it with a pair of stovepipe jeans and your favorite flats. The price? An eyepopping $215.00.


And finally, stay warm when the weather turns cold with this plaid jacket by Juicy Couture. Yes, its Juicy. Hard to believe. Which brings me to another point, the jacket is cute and all but do I really want to shell out $395.00 on a Juicy Couture piece?


adore you.

The Dawn of a New Era

August 10, 2006

Alright. Maybe that title was a bit melodramatic but hey, I finally opened up my fashion blog! Come here to find out about all the latest trends and faux pas that wrankle Hollywood and every day Joe Shmoe’s (me included). Ofcourse, you’ll be subjected to my wish list (expect it to be shoe heavy) and my ramblings on others fashion mishaps. I think that’s a pretty good introduction for now. Jump in the Chic Adore Beemer, you’re in for quite a ride.
