I wanna be… B.B. Homemaker

18 Jul
So I know I’m a tad late on letting all of you know how much I LOVE Beyonce’s new Video “Why Don’t you Love Me”, I mean lets face it, I have been a bit late on everything lately.  I could give you the same excuses.. work is crazy, yadda, yadda, yadda.  But instead of doing that I’m jsut going to stuck it up and still post all of the fabulous things I have been meaning to, those things that have been piling up in my inspiration file on my desktop in hopes that you will still love it.  I mean look at the bright side, by now you probably forgot all about this video and now its like I’m bringing it back, or so I hope.  
So back to the topic at hand. Beyonce introduces her 2nd or is it 3rd (I can’t keep up) alter ego, B.B. Homemaker in her latest video “Why Don’t You Love Me” and I must say… the song I could take it or leave it but the VIDEO I could watch over and over again.  I love the 1950’s sitcom theme complete with 50’s housewife, vintage cars, voice overs and theme music.  I simply can’t get enough.  I’m loving the look!  
 Click HERE to see the video!                                                        
It may be too early to say, but I think I may have to channel my inner B.B. Homemaker come Halloween this year.  What do you think?  I could totally pull it off right?

Halloween 09: Little Toy Soldier

25 Oct

(click above for details on the items featured)

Well its that time of year again when girls dress a little less but don’t get judge for it (lol) … All hallows eve or better known as Halloween. For the past couple of weeks I was planning on going as Wonder Woman… but then today I decided a toy soldier would be much more original and way cuter! Plus I came across these super cute leg warmers that I HAD to have:

So I have decided how easy would it be to pull this together? A red cardigan, navy scarf or fleece fabric trimmed with bold buttons and chains, gold fringe on the shoulders, white bustier with red ribbon trim and navy pleated skirt. All paired with the super cute leg warmers and black patent pumps… (the Louboutin’s featured above are but a dream but something similar will work). I also though white gloves would be cute trimmed with navy cuffs, buttons and ruffles. That way if I get a little warm I can take the cardigan off but my costume will still be cute.

Tomorrow I’m hitting the streets of Manhattan to find the necessary elements for my costume. I created the above collage to keep me focused. Wish me luck!
