Fashion Quiz: The Queen lost her perspective

(Taken @ Wynn Esplande in  fabulous Las Vegas)

Rodarte X Target= <3

I finally had a chance to check out the Rodarte collaboration with Target. Let me just tell you how happy I am with this collaboration. The collection is my favorite Target/high end designer collaboration to date. Lingerie details (Lace and tulle), feminine silhouettes, fun colors (think baby blue or Mustard) combined with killer Target prices is always a plus in my book. The collection's price ranges from $12.99-$44.99, which means I can afford to look good ;)

So if you're still wondering what to wear for that New Year's Party go to your nearest Target store and pick up one of beautiful skirts or dresses, pair it up with some boots and you can be the belle of the ball!

What are you wearing NYE?

P.S. How adorable is that Tavi girl in the video?!?!?!

The tag read-To: Me//From: Me

Soooooooo after many years of waking up to shitty gifts underneath the Christmas tree like this or this I took the initiative to be proactive this year and buy my own gift.
I went to Uptown Whittier's Casita del Pueblo and bought the most exquisite necklace. (Look @ the picture)
This is a neat little boutique shop that caters to Latin-Folk art, with religious figurines, sugar skulls and the infamous Frida Kahlo inspired prints on wallets.
While everything look lovely I choose to give myself a one of kind necklace from local artist Lisa Rocha.
Casita del pueblo showcases many local artists and host several trunk show @ the store. They cater to one-of-kind jewelry, artwork and clothing articles.
So next time you're in Whittier stop by the store and Ch-ch-check it out!

What did you get yourself for Christmas???

Just like fine Wine...

The ladies of Sex and the city are back! The movie is set to be release May 2010. While i'm much more interested in the outfits they are going to wear, I can't wait to see what unfolds for Carrie and the Girls. Maybe Carrie will get fat?!?!?!?! I highly doubt it, but a girl could dream?
BTW, how appropriate is the "Empire State of mind" song for this movie?
-Boyfriends of the world, I have warned you! May 2010.

Celebrity Death #9 of 2009

Following a list of many celebrities, Brittany Murphy has died at the age of 32. The actress will be known for her starring roles in movies like "8mile" and "Sin City". I will always remember her  as "Tai" in Clueless", who told Cher she was a "Virgin who can't drive" (LOL!) and taught me  how to "roll with the homies" .

R.I.P. Brittany Murphy.

Style Icon: Fonzworth Bentley

Derrick Watkins, also known as "Fonzworth Bentley" is the epitome of American modern-cool. Never afraid to go bold he uses key color accessories to classic suits-without looking like a fool.
The singer/ex Puff daddy umbrella holder is always wearing innovative outfits that are often risque. I always pictured him as a cooler version of Pee Wee Herman.  I know men don't usually wear colors as much as he does, but most men can't pull it off as gracefully like Bentley can.

This is my ode to you Fonzeworthy Bentley. 

Heels @ Concerts?

As an avid concert goer, I try to tread the lines of style and comfort. But the last concert I went to, threw comfort out the window!
 Every single lady in the place had on a pair of killer stilletos or mile high boots. Which made me question if that is even normal behavior.
I personally don't like the idea of  worrying about my feet exploding during the middle of a sing-a-along with the band. The group "Don't wear F*cking High Heels to Concerts!!!" is dedicated to exactly that. They express their hatred towards the fashion of heels in impractical situations.

Do you wear heels at concerts?

Sparkle Overload

Soooo, I saw these at Forever 21 the other day. I know sparkles and sequins are in, but does that mean I have to dress like a  roadie for The Greatest Show on Earth?
And if you manage to somehow pull this look off, expect this sound to follow you everywhere.

That is all.

An open letter to Old St. Nick:

Dear Nick,
May I call you Nick? This year has been rough. Real rough. That is why my list will be more detail orientated than the ones of previous years. This year I do not want the usual, Peace on Earth or even this insanely gorgeous pagoda top from Anthropologie.

 This year I want something more practical. I want:

  • A horse. (For traffic on the 405)
  • Handicap parking permit
  • A bigger closet
  • Socks.  Button Socks
Thank you.
<3 Khris

"Give peace a chance" V.S. "Give peace a place in your wardrobe"

I often wonder what people who went to" Woodstock" think of all the Peace signs of today. Was their vision of the "peace symbol" for 2009 to be on a Juicy Couture bag? Or do they trip out because the symbol is not behind a tie-dye print? Ah, difficult questions. One CNN reporter Rudy Ruiz recently wrote an opinion article on the modern misusage of the peace symbol in fashion. "What happened to "Give peace a chance" rather than "Give peace a place in your wardrobe"writes Ruiz.
*Ruiz made me rethink my "Secret Santa" gift?!*

Style Icon: Lou Doillon

The 70’s broke many fashion rules, and boundaries. And while many of the trends are ones we would like to forget (Leisure suits) others have transcended through the years and are still prevalent today. The androgynous look is one of the. Today there are few style icons that can break that same boundary of gender with out looking like Ziggy Stardust.

Lou Doillon happens to be one of them. This 27-year-old English/French model channels the femme fatal power of the past and combines it with a boyish charm. While she has a HUGE advantage in the style department (her mom is the insanely gorgeous Jane Birkin) she manages to stray away from her big name mother and create a style original to her self. Gamine-sexy-Tailored.
Here’s my ode to the stylish Lou.


Voyeur: Purse edition

Coach. Louis Vuitton.Marc Jacobs. LAMB.Betsey Johnson. What do these labels have in common?

The fact that they all produce amazing purses, sure to be on some girls Christmas lists this year. While the purse’s labels vary from person to person, one thing does not change- the purpose of the purse. Purses are great because they hold all our crap together. As for me, I try to not clutter my purse, but I have a few essentials I always carry in my purse.

-Keys to my car
-Cell phone
-Red Comb (This tames my bangs)
-Gum (you never know who you might meet)
-Matte FX cover powder
-Victoria Secret Lip Gloss
-Chanel Lipstick (Enigma)
-Random hair pins and bow

What’s in your purse?

Hi, my name is Khris and I…am a style-holic.

The power a killer outfit can give you/The excitement of brand new-shoes/The way skinny feels/All reasons to justify an obsession with style and fashion.
And while many think that fashion cannot affect them directly, I’m calling their “bluff”.
Fashion/style is an effective way of communicating non-verbally with people. (Isn’t that the best way to communicate with someone?) Clothes can be insightful to your personality and style. Clothes can make a statement. Clothes can inspire. This blog is dedicated to the brave people who do so and speak to us through the art of clothes.
