The New Pastry's Online Shop!!!

The ladies of Pastry, Vanessa and Angela Simmons have decided to launch an online boutique to give their fans something more. The ladies have a lot going on with the brand as of late and I am sure, more to come.
 
The recent and upcoming projects consist of things such as a collaboration with the brand Chivalrous Culture started by their brother Diggy, a breast cancer awareness bracelet, a Spring 2012 campaign ad competition with Cody Simpson and much more. This online boutique will offer all of what is past, present and future to you on Love Pastry.com! Pastry products will also be available at a discounted rate on the site address here, www.lovepastry.com
 
V & A would also like to tell you, to get ready to see a lot more of the new brand ambassadors Mz. Bratt and Jessica Jarrell, as their faces become the new face of Pastry. The Pastry Shoes Vice President, Solomn Dabah states, "We are celebrating this transition by offering cheap shoes on this off-Pastry site." And I think that this idea is FABULOUS, dont you???
 
I linked onto the site and shopped around and I must say, I found a few items that I liked. From the top to bottom here are the item details:
 
1. An image of Mz. Bratt rocking her Pastry's. You should check out her music too. I hear that she is pretty good.

What do you think of the shoes pictured above? Colorful, platform, peep toe, texturized beauties. All are priced under $100 and look great.

Nail Color Tuesday: OPI's Roadhouse Blues!!!

Today's post is inspired by @Tiara_Thomas, the student, singer, musician (popular for collaborating with Wale), model and tweeter.
 
I ran across her tweet that stated, she was looking for the Roadhouse Blue color from OPI's Fall Collection and I hopped on the search. I am a personal shopper and purchasing guru so I found it within seconds and of course, tweeted if back to her. The link for others to purchase it is here.
 
This product is the 2011 Best of Allure Winner and I can see why. Kind of B.I.G, hunh?
 
That said, how do you feel about the dark blue, fearless girl polish. I think it makes a powerful statement.

Versace For H&M Lookbook!!!

The lookbook for the Versace for H&M Collection has finally dropped. And let's just say, Donatella has done it again! A collection that will include mens and womens apparel and accessories as well as some houseware items, is totally appealing, dont you think?
Donatella offers some simple silhouettes with chic detailing yet powerful construction. That fact that some of the items have the signature Versace logo and pattern style is the BEST! The line offers a wide range of colors, dresses, pants, tops, scarves, jewels and more, to offer consumers a luxury feeling at the mass market retail level.
Co-Contributer: Monie D.

The Perfect Daytime Look!

Thanks to the InStyle Magazine, I saw a picture of SJP rocking a look that I consider the perfect chic and chill daytime look.

Animal print neck scarf, amazing brown fedora, a plush velvet of some sort grayish blue colored pant that are folded up in a random way, just to show off the banging boots she's wearing. With all of this going on, a white tank brings the pieces all together.

Do you like or dislike this look? Why or why not? I'd like to hear from you.

Fall 2011 Trend Alert: Bowtie Blouses!

 


 
 
 
Bowtie blouses are one of this years fall trends that I am putting a Notable stamp on. If you have a wardrobe style that will appreciate bowtie blouses, you have come to the right place.

Bowties in general were present on the women and men fall runways. And retailers have plenty to offer us in different sleeve lengths, colors and texture.

The first image is a 3.1 Phillip Lim look for the runway.

The second image is a bowtie blouse priced at $49 which isn't bad.

The third image is Stacy Dash in a different style of bowtie blouse, in which the blouse has an edgier look.

Will you be wearing the bowtie blouse look? Let me know. Why or why not? Let's discuss.
