Expected Pieces from the Unexpected



For all you foodies and Top Chef groupies (I must confess I am one!) I have a tip for you. Unfortunately, this is not a Bravo Network Top Chef post.....it’s better!

Who knew that the Top Chef famed hostess (and newly expecting mother) Padma Lakshmi had more on her taste buds than the next super gourmet truffle filled, duck fat soaked, asparagus topped cuisine. She currently has her own line of jewelry, which she adorns on the show. Her collection of jewelry combines her Indian culture with a modern flair. Her delicate and super feminine pieces are meant to enhance the enchantment of the female body! I’m feeling girly already! Coinciding with today’s designs that are backless, her collection includes an array of back to front necklaces.

You can find these pieces by visiting her website at www.padmalakshmi.com or visiting your closest Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Mitchells, Richards. Although one of these fine pieces may run you a couple G’s…it’s well worth the investment. Definitely a great find in time for the Holidays!

Balmain S/S 2010!!

When I previewed what is to come for Spring/Summer 2010 with Balmain, I was EXCITED!!!

1. I see that the shiny, flashy vintage look will still be around for another season and he gave me a "fresh", "new" spin to put on it.

2. Christophe Decarnin the Balmain designer, gave me something else, that I love just as much as this seasons quilted items, because honestly, the quilted texture that he did for Fall/Winter 09, I thought couldn't be topped! -- WRONG

And for once, I am happy to BE!! Check the looks and tell me, if you can see yourself flashing on the world in Balmain or Balmain inspired looks, come next Spring? I know that I can, Ciao!

Alexander Wang, Giving U A Sexy Back!

The jacket that I am about to show you is (wait, brace yourself) pure decadence and sheer genius in its combination of sexiness and class. I mean, these characteristics are on the top of my list of preferred fashion vibes that I like to exude, when I step out on the scene, a little bit of sexy and definitely a LOT of class.

Alexander Wang, gave us a little more sexy than we bargained for (which is always good with luxury clothing) in his tailored jacket with rivets. The jacket has a full length size peak-a-boo on the back side, rivets going along the shoulders and sleeves, with a two button closure and invisible pockets.

This jacket can definitely be worn to an after 5 event, dinner party or art gallery showing. That equals more BANG for your BUCK! Price - $795. For an economy friendly alternative, try this Anthropologie Lineage Jacket. Price - $98.

Custom Giuseppes For Rihanna!

Per June Ambrose, the shoes below are custom-made Giuseppes for Ms. Rih-Rih Rihanna herself! Man, if I had a shoe line that packed the power that the Giuseppe brand has, I would've done this, myself and sent them to her. But hey, these are HOT! What do you think?

Pharrell x Moncler!

On November 19th, 2009 Pharrell Williams announced that he designed a line of jackets for Moncler. This line includes multiple designs, some that are made of bionic yarn and a lining dosselled up with a print from Japanese artist, Keita Sugiura's artwork. Bionic yarn is company that produces yarn from recycled plastic bottles and is owned by Pharrell Williams.

I have heard that Moncler is a kick ass brand, that brings a laid back swag and luxury feel to the quilted/puffy outerwear game. When I get word of price points, stockists and other info on this collaboration, Notable Styles and myself will definitely Up-daaaaate you.

From I AM SASHA FIERCE to......

Is anyone feeling or not feeling Beyonce's New Look? She wore the outfit below to Rihanna's Party in London on Monday night and the outfit is fine. But what is up with the Halloween eye make-up and lipstick? IAMSASHA Fierce is now IAMSCARY Fierce.

If you read my blog on a regular, you know that I hardly ever commentate about "dis"liking anyone's individual style, but the scary hair and make-up is questionable for Beyonce, maybe it would work better on uhhh....Lady Gaga?

In Bey's defense, she probably has not had many opportunities to experiment and have fun with hair and make up looks outside of her usual Beyonce (Golden Child) image, so I'll give her a get out of jail FREE card this time, issued by the Fashion Police. But if this Tom Foolery continues, I may have to call up the troops. LITERALLY!

Lifewithoutwax: Im a Polymath

I am a math and science based, fashion loving, engineer degree holding, multi-tasking, Notable Stylistic babe, so when I first read that the lifewithoutwax.com blogettes, would be hosting a section called *polymaths on their site, my ears peaked. *I'll let you visit their site to see what a polymath actually is. Working with this company has been a GREAT pleasure and I hope I get an opportunity to work with them again in the future, near future. - Smooches -

Excerpt from my feature article below, click this link for the complete version. It's funny, you should read it.

**Concealing Necessities**

We all for some reason, want to obtain our ideal level of perfection, right? The right physical, mental and spiritual balance. The right color nail polish and the perfect shoe. The perfect gift for your loved one and the right package to present it in. The perfect significant other, who comes along with the perfect background.

But, if everyone’s idea of perfection is different, is there such a thing as perfection? ........ Aiming for perfection that is individually defined is called walking on dead mans cliff (in my opinion), but trying to be respectful and presentable, I think is a concept more people could agree on. Is showing your underwear in public, respectful?
