SATC2



I have become partial to yellow since it has become the fave colour of my little one. Although, I don't own many yellow stuff.

I particularly like this outfit for SJP and the shoes as well. As usual, I was in shoeblog again and these caught my attention.

I couldn't wait to see the movie in DVD only while sitting in my office furniture, maybe? I actually blog from the office so I can do that.
*****

Not the Movie




These are Gladiators on a whole new level, I would say. I remember, it's in fashion here in Oz last year but most of them that I saw were flats. I didn't knew then what they were called. Yeah, now I know the name came from the movie itself - I'm not too sure. The above shoes are just beyond me - even if I put myself in tv stands. These are the only pair that I could wear and own.

I Admit It




You Act Like You Are 28 Years Old



You are a twenty-something at heart. You feel like an adult, and you're optimistic about life.

You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences. You're still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up. Te world is full of possibilities, and you can't wait to explore many of them.




that I am childish. It's just me. I think, it's my way of life? Way of doing things? I'm not really sure but I don't have any plans of changing my attitude anytime soon.

Anyway, even if I act like 28 YO, I am very responsible. I am always thinking of the future - I mean, at least securing my family. But just incase, there are social security disability people who look after other people in a dilemna of how to at least avail the benefits of social security. There are times, that everything is just too much and a little bit of help comes in a long way.

What's with the Fedora Hat



According to wikipedia:
A fedora (pronounced /fɨˈdɔrə/) is a felt hat that is creased lengthwise down the crown and pinched in the front on both sides.[1] Similar hats with a C-crown (with an indentation for the head in the top of the crown) are occasionally called fedoras. The brim goes all the way around, and often there will be a hat band as well. A trilby hat is somewhat similar to a fedora, but typically has a narrower brim, and the back of the brim is distinctively more sharply upturned as a result.

The term fedora was in use as early as 1891. Originally a women's fashion into the 20th century, the fedora came into use in about 1919, as a men's middle-class clothing accessory. Its popularity soared, and eventually it eclipsed the similar-looking Homburg by the early 1920s. Fedoras can be found in nearly any color imaginable, but black, grey, tan, brown, and red are the most popular.

Just got curious that I saw most celebs wear them - Jennifer Aniston, Reese, Orlando Bloom, etc. Obviously you can get it anywhere online - just like Amazon books.

Hermes Picotin Lock


Picotin Lock Bag, size GM, bleu jean taurillon clemence leather, silver and palladium hardware, 10.2" x 10.4" x 8.5"
Ref. 060992CK75
$2,950.00

This is a perfect weekend or all around bag for me. It's structured and blue. What else can I ask for? Well, I have so much to ask as I really couldn't afford this sweetie. I only have to dream. I can afford other things (like fitness equipment) but not this bag. Plus, I couldn't splurge on bag even maybe, I have enough money to buy it. It's just sinful - for me that is.

Oh well, I'm into structured bags again. My desire for the will never run out. Although, I do admire the high end... I can only afford the low end so I'm thankful that they are available here in Oz. The latest structured bag I bought cost me around 15bucks. Not bad, eh? Life is pleasant as long as you know what to look - maybe like hydroxycut side effects reading materials?

Stripe Jacket


Kahmuh Jacket - km166-White/Black Check
Cotton
KAHMUH is an emerging womens fashion label which is influenced by European style and elegance. KAHMUH's collection includes urban wear, evening wear and business attire as well as swimwear, shoes and accessories.
I recently bought a jacket and I haven't worn it yet... It's not an everyday wear as it's white. I just can't find an occasion to don it but I reckon, soon I'll be able to when the winter wind is in full blast. Hopefully, an occasion will ring the doorbell soon. I can't wait to flaunt it. Yet, I am admiring this one. Will certainly look for this in my locals shops.

More Than Just a Car

And I thought the Land Rover brand is just for vehicles. Well, I'll be damned. My husband owns a Discovery and I reckon, if I buy him a pair of these shoes, he will be delighted.

They look serviceable and long lasting even if you wear them outdoors and not just stepping on mosaic tile.

Weird Shoes


ACNE - Sapphire 1 sandal
Sapphire 1 sandal from Acne. This unique high heeled sandal features three thin industrial style rusty heels - the smaller two are detachable. It has a black leather two-strap upper and fastens behind the heel with a zipper.

I was at shoeblog.com again (boy I like that blog) and found these shoes. The question is, would you wear them? Let alone buy them? Ahhh, have to think about it. It's not rocket science but I think buying vitamins are much beneficial that buying them. What do you reckon?

Sundresses

It's really the cold season here. I am not really ecstatic about it. Time to pack our our summer wear and hello fleece, hoodies and jackets. We live in a sub-tropical climate so it's not really that bad. So far, the lowest this year was about 9 or 8 C. Not bad and I don't have to don hoodies yet. It gets around 22 by noon so it's pretty good. Although I miss wearing singlets and summer dresses.

By the way here are some that I like in Jen.

BROOKLYN AND JENNIFER
Don't let their casual attire fool you! Decker and Aniston, in coordinating sundresses and sun-kissed tans, are actually getting to work on the Hawaiian set of Just Go With It.



JENNIFER ANISTON
Cozying up to costar Adam Sandler, Jen shows off her toned and tan legs in a white peekaboo minidress and wedge espadrilles while shooting Just Go with It in Hawaii.


Oh, how I like Jen's tan and toned body. If I have those same calves, I'd be showing them off too. I just need to do some exercise (no need for best fat burners yet) and I'll strut my stuff. Oh I need to guts too. :)

Shoes Celebs Wear


Paris Hilton in Chanel Shoes
Paris Hilton is now designing shoes herself, and, in my opinion, she’s got designer talent. But she won’t resist appearing in her favorite Chanel shoes.


Anne Hathaway in YSL Shoes
Anne Hathaway seems to start taking more care of her style. The actress’ hard and fast rule about shoes is that they have to match other accessories. In this case, her YSL shoes go perfectly with a fabric belt.

Celebrities always make the trend by wearing shoes, clothes, bags..etc in public. They should be charging the maker - it's advertising. You read women asking questions like what their favourite celeb are wearing (I haven't heard of what's the best life insurance quote yet). And I'm sure when told, they'll readily head off to the shops to buy it.

Jen in Black


"I feel beautiful when I'm laughing and surrounded by friends that know me and love me and vice versa," says Aniston, who celebrated her 41st birthday in February with good pals Courteney Cox and Sheryl Crow in Mexico. "A good body scrub and massage do the trick as well."

I saw this photo in People and I really like it. I think it's old but it's the first time that I saw it I just have to re-post it here. No visible blackheads there but just plain beauty.

Structured Bags


I have always preferred structured bags when buying. They're practical and just easy to find things in there.
Who What Wear’s obsession du jour—the structured purse—is about to kick hobos and buckets off the handbag radar. This ladylike alternative to super-sized, slouchy bags has been spotted in the clutches of Chloe Sevigny, Christina Aguilera, and Natalia Vodianova (an office favorite). As seen here, structured purses add a certain sophistication to even a casual outfit. The structured purse is also practical. The medium dimensions are sizable enough to fit all your necessities, but the bag’s bones keep you from loading it up with pointless junk.

I couldn't agree more. I mean who needs load of stuff (except oximeter) in their bag anyway? Oh well, as the movie The Devil Wears Prada says, the bag is not just an accessory. It should posses some of a woman's character.

Bally Bags

My friend and I went in to the Bally shop last night to look at the bags. They were gorgeous - especially the green and white. The Filipina attendant was so friendly. I thought, they would cost less than LV but I was so surprised. They cost as much or a bit more. I reckon, we would need new home security systems incase I buy one. Lol.

Comfort

I so love these shoes just by looking at them. At times, I prefer stylish and fashion shoes but most of the times, my mind wander back to the good old fashion comfort shoes. And these shoes from rivers say it all. If only they have my size.





I've scoured the river shop in our area and it's so hard to find shoes that will fit me. Sometimes I think, it is easier to get Kohler kitchen faucets than me buying shoes really my size. It's a big frustration for me. Oh well, my husband I'm sure is all smiles because of it.

I saw tattoo pair of slingbacks back then in the Philippines in Blue. I so love it and they don't come at a cost.

These shoes are also pretty. Not the Ed Hardy type or as an equestrian apparel either. But they sure look pretty and sexy.
*****

30cm Shoes


A pair of these shoes cost about $1720 made in Romania, where the average salary is $650/month. But of course, these shoes will go to internation market for they're 30cm heels alone. designed by Mihai Albu. I visited his website and it was very interesting. The model for some of the shoes are nude except the tablet that covers her lower private and arm at the top in some shots. I like the shoes though.

For the blokes, these are nice gifts for her.

Really?




You Need Success to Be Happy



You are a responsible and serious person. You like to do things well.

Reaching your goals is very important to you, and you don't like getting sidetracked. You feel great when you are mastering new tasks and solving problems. You believe in hard work. Nothing makes you feel worse than feeling like you are doing a back job.




I suppose so. I was born in a mediocre place but I dreamt big. I aspire for more so I got out of the place and didn't look back - but that doesn't mean that I forgot about my roots. I just didn't stop. I want to be successful in everything that I do and who don't anyway. If you don't want to succeed why bother?

But to say that success is my only source of happiness, well, that's rubbish. I am happy as it is with my life with my one-and-a-half men. A HDTV in our lounge can make me laugh. Baking can do the same. Success is the end result and what's the use of starting something if you're not going to see the result anyway. Success is actually a relative term.

Blings

I can't say that I like watches because I only own 2. If I do, I should own at least 10, right? But I think I do, yet my hip pocket is not that flexible to allow me to buy many watches so I contend myself with window shopping. I saw these and I quite like them. I don't wish for a watch this Mother's Day. I don't wish for anything at all. I have all what I need - my wants are not that necessary (maybe like big and tall clothing? lol). But I still want to have another watch - something casual.

Rivers Shoes

I've been wanting to buy new winter shoes and Rivers brand came to mind. There's a shop nearby and I think they have sale. I like their brand as the shoes are comfy. I checked online and see if there are any that I like and so far these are my picks. I just hope they have these instore in size 36. No, I didn't use irvingia gabonensis, I just have a slim feet, of course what can you expect for my size. Lol.

2010 Collections

I have always liked Nine West shoes and bags for obvious reasons: quality and price. These are the new shoes for 2010 for this brand. I quite like them especially the Chocolata. Colourful and flirty - with or without the aid of pronexin. Though, I am not that daring when it comes to shoes that I wear. I'm always on the safe side - read: boring.

Bergdorf Goodman Shoes

I've been to the shoeblog again.. and I just have to repost all these goodies. I like them all... but not to the point of wearing them myself. It's like recommending diet supplements that work but wouldn't try one for myself. Well, what can I say.. they're lovely.

Earth Footwear

What's with Earth Shoes? It seems most of the comfy shoes are patterned this way - negative heel technology. I've been doing click here and click there to search for these type of shoes and here's what I found in wikipedia.

Earth shoes were an unconventional style of shoe invented in the 1970s in Scandinavia: unlike other shoes, the soles were thick and the heels were thin (Negative Heel Technology), so wearing them one walked heel-downward. The advertisements said that it was like walking on the beach, where one's footprints are this way.

A different firm with the same name is now in existence, and has recently introduced shoes with negative heels in a variety of styles ranging from sandals to running shoes.
