Christian Louboutin vs. YSL. War on red.

In the fashion world the color red is synonymous with Christian Louboutin’s red soled shoes. His shoes are coveted by celebrities and plain folk alike.

In 1992, Christian Louboutin felt that a pair of his shoes “lacked energy”. He then painted the sole of the shoes with red nail polish and voilà, a trademark is set. Or so he thought.

He registered the color in 2008. He thought his color was protected, just like Tiffany & Co.’s blue color is protected by trademark.

Luxurious brand Yves Saint Laurent created a shoe called Continue reading

I love Bethenny Frankel’s style (pics!)

There’s something about Bethenny Frankel that I’ve always been drawn to. I followed her from Real Housewives of New York, to Bethenny Getting Married. Truth be told the main reason I liked RHNY was Bethenny. Although of course I still watch it now (all the housewive shows are my guilty pleasures:)) it definitely got more boring without her.

Firstly I love her quick tongue. Granted, that gets her into trouble sometimes but I tend to get flustered if someone says something to me I’m not expecting so I wish I had that quality where I can say something in return without missing a beat!

My celebrity style icon

I absolutely love love love Victoria Beckham’s style. She has an aura of sophistication.
She always looks impeccable. That includes obviously when she’s dressed for a party or night out, and just as much on her casual looking days when she’s out with her beautiful kids and hubby! She can pull off anything.

And I totally envy her closet! Her bags, her shoes and clothes, I love them all. When she’s not wearing the intentional “over-sized, loose fitting” look, her clothes are tailored so perfectly on her body it’s as if she was sewn into them. I always get my clothes tailored-I hate when things don’t fit just perfect. It is a rare instance when right off the hanger it fits perfectly. Many people just put on an outfit not caring about strange pulls or creases. Ahhh lol-that’s a major pet peeve of mine!
