I love the classic and chic look of aviators. I’ve always wanted a pair, but I haven’t really found a pair that complimented my round face. So, my round face and I stick to large round shades, which I do love! However, I just spotted these large round aviator by Ray-Ban and think my sunglasses collection is about to add a new pair of aviators to the fam. They are also available in white, but the tortoise tickles my fancy!
I have been wanting this book for a long time, but just never got around to it.
The Dictionary of Fashion was written by Christian Dior in the 50s. Obviously, the book will probably be no help to you if you are looking for a reference book to help your dressing sense today, but if you are like me and love to collect fashion related hard cover books, then this might be something you consider picking up.
It looks so retro, too!
Just the other day I was staring lovingly into the glare of my laptop monitor in utter awe at my spring wardrobe’s staple shoe; Christian Louboutin patent leather multi-colored blocked slingback with a nude upper. Oh, so perfect for an orgy of outfits (Glee fans will get that “orgy” repetition).
After staring to the point of an intense headache, I bookmarked my new shoe obsession and went about my business for couple of days. So, needing a little pick me up after a grueling day at work today, I decided to unwind with the colorful cuties, but when I clicked the link it was all black. When I say that, I been Bianca was no longer the color blocking chick that I fell in love with a couple of days ago. Instead, she was all shiny and black, uber chic, but not the fun rainbow coalition I was anticipating.
Now, my heart and my spring wardrobe are mourning the lost of a love one. Hopefully, I will find her again, before I blow all my income tax return money next month.
If you know of the whereabouts of this version of Bianca, then please drop me a note below or tweet it to me!
Personally, I don’t have a problem with people getting plastic surgery. I don’t know if I ever see myself getting plastic surgery, but still no problem. However, when it comes to plastic surgery, I guess you can say I’m pro choice. I believe the reason I feel this way is, because the stigma and taboo of getting plastic surgery has weakened over the years.
However, there is one thing about the invention and takeover of plastic surgery in pop culture that has irked me beyond belief and has asked me to ponder the following question for a while now. Has plastic surgery killed the ideal of natural “beauty”?
Before there was plastic surgery, there were women who were actually born with large breasts, smooth skin, full lips, and large butts. I know it sounds shocking, right?! However, that seems almost impossible, because when we see an ample lip, bust, or derriere, we tend to make assumptions about enhancements, before being “born with them.”
For example, as soon as someone new hits the media airwaves that has an ample bust or full derriere, the scrunity and questions of “Are they real?” or “Did they look like that before?” start become supporting characters in conversations about them. Also, if someone looks a little different, people start pulling out old pictures and start doing photo comparisons.
Somehow, the invention of plastic surgery has swiped out the possibility of natural endowments and even tricks of the trades such as push-up bras and make-up tricks. Seriously.
One of the new things that, to my shock, is the idea that someone with a large and ample rump must have had fat injected or wearing butt pads. About 11 years ago, when Jennifer Lopez was just getting her foot into the door of mainstream, I read an article about how women were starting to inquire about butt implants. Personally, my little 17 year old mind at the time thought that it was a fad that would die out very soon. Chile, was I wrong. Butt implants are the new “it” thing to have. They are up there with botox!
Anyway, am I the only one that feels this way or have these thoughts. I will definitely admit that I think enhancements first and then I look for signs of natural. What about you?
