AMAs Hot or Not!

I don’t know about you, but it was a little bit of hit or miss all the way through.

I did like Lady Gaga’s Performance:

I got to give it to J. Lo. She fell and got back up like a pro:

I don’t know who SoShy is but I loved the song she, Timberland, and Nelly Furtado sang:

I also loved that Shakira used stepping in her routine:

What did you love or hate about last night’s award show?

OMG This Is Horrible News

This is so sad! I can’t even believe this. She was only 20 years old.

From NY Mag’s The Cut:

Model Daul Kim was found dead in Paris this morning, her agents at Next confirm. “She was a top model and a great friend to all of us at Next. Please respect her family’s privacy at this time of sadness. We will all miss her very much,” they said in a statement. The cause of death remains unknown at this time but a source tells the Cut the 20-year-old committed suicide. She will be missed.

Midweek The Fat and Skinny Steals and Deals

I’m starting a new blog, in the same vein as Awkard Family Photo called Prom No Go. This project is still in the inception phase, so I don’t even have one photo yet, but you could be the first! Pass this info on to your friends.

Bad Bish

I feel like having a Rachel Zoe moment, OCC LOL LMAO WWJD! I D.I.E.

No seriously, I found this on the Hanneli Mustaparta’s blog. The insanely chic and tresmazing Daphne Guinness shut it down as she decided to break out the Alexander McQueen at the NARS 15x 15 Party. OHHHH EMMMM GEEEE! First Lady Gaga and now her. Who do you think is next to hop on the McQueen crazy train?

Low End/High End

Check out these low end/high end alternatives from the Torrid website. I found them while trying to surf their rush hour $19.99 bootie sale last week. I also had a recent convo on twitter with Garner Style about knockoffs. I sit on the fence when it comes to knockoffs. I also truly believe in the trickle down/ trickle up theory of fashion. That means that fashion either comes from the Haute Couture and moves down into the masses or moves from the street upward.I also realize that people want to look good and have the latest threads but may not be able to afford or fit in them, so they get the knockoff version.

The thing I don’t like is a blatant copy. Change the buckle, make it in a different color, respect the designer’s hard work, and don’t make these goods in sweatshops where the money goes to drugs or terrorism. I once read a report where the boss of a factory broke the legs of the children who worked there and then tied their legs together so they couldn’t move. Why would you want to support something like this? So think twice before you buy a fake bag out of Auntie Kiki’s car at the gas station.

That being said, I believe that these Dollhouse shoes are apart of the trickle down theory. I hope so, because they are really cute and I want a pair.

Jane Aldridge Does It Again

Well the Texas teen/ shoe blogger has done it again. Jane Aldridge has hatched up another set of shoes for hipster brand Urban Outfitters. The shoes are smart, cute, and just what you would expect from the style savvy teen. Peep toe booties and shoes with vintage touches are the themes of this collection. Jane is really making a name for herself at such a young age. Check out her blog here and her Urban Outfitters line here.


If you read my blog, you know that I love shoes. That is why I have deemed this week SHOE WEEK! YAY! For my first shoe week post, I am going to show you some lower priced alternatives for the budget conscious shopper. All of the shoes are coming from Fly Jane. They didn’t ask for a review, but I thought I would do one since I like the shoes on this site. I hope you like it!

  • Liliana HIP Ankle Platform Boots

This boot only costs $64.90. A great price right? The Liliana boot is trendy and hot. You might want to rock some skinny jeans, a tee by Alexander Wang, and a sequin jacket with these boots. You are sure to look real tough in these.

  • Miss Me JOCELYN Platform Heel

The Jocelyn is only $49.90 and comes in pink, red, gray, black, and purple. Each shoe has a different color sole. I love this shoe because you can wear the black and gray shoes to work and church, and the other colors for a night out on the town. The bow on top of the peep toe is so cute.

  • Michael Antonio STRATFORD Dress Sandals

I love these shoes because they only costs $49.90, and I can see myself wearing these with some great boot cut jeans. I love how the straps wrap around the shoe, and how they have this great animal skin/marbleized kind of look.
This shoe can jazz up any outfit.
