Looks So Good, It Hurts!

I dare you to hug Rihanna in this dress. Ya might pierce an internal organ!

Pics from Rihanna’s Rated R release party over the weekend show her clad head to toe in spikes. She wore a gold spiked minidress with equally spiked Louboutins.

And a recent sighting in London shows Rih Rih once again clad in spikes. Is that part of her new self defense technique or simply fashion? Hmmm…either way, that’s one tricked out sweatsuit.

What do you guys think of the spikes? Fierce or Foolish?

Brunch in the Hamptons, anyone?

I could so see this being my go-to party dress…love the draping

Great pieces for work

So excited to see what patterns are in store this spring – this one’s great.

Ok I must say she looks like she belongs on a farm, but whoever’s daring and edgy enough to pull this off – props to ya!

Accessories for days…

Ok , I’m officially excited for Spring 2010…it can’t come fast enough.

Leotards At the Club – Fierce or Foolish?

Ok so yesterday I put Ms. Melody Thornton of the Pussycat Dolls on my Best Dressed list at the 2009 AMAs. She looked great in a white Sass & Bide embellished dress:

HOWEVER, I stumbled upon this picture of her later that night in another Sass & Bide piece…but a LEOTARD this time:

And I’m wondering….are leotards now appropriate to run through the streets in?! I thought these were strictly for pop divas on stage…is it acceptable to wear these outside of showtime…or Halloween?

Hmmm….Fierce or Foolish yall?

Fashion Countdown: American Music Awards 2009

Hey lovelies!

Hope you had a great weekend and I also hope you all tuned into the American Music Awards. It was adequately entertaining, I must say. Here are my Top 10 Best & Worst:

10. WORST (Gasp! Dare I say…) – Rihanna

As much as I love Rih Rih, this was a complete miss for me. Bare bodied underneath a laser cut, voluminous gown…me no likey.

It looks like they pasted stencils on her! Her hair and makeup look FAB though…

9. BEST – J. Lo

Although I wasn’t a fan of her live performance, I absolutely LOVED her cocktail dress. I’m not usually giddy over feathers, but this makes me wanna kidnap a goose and make one myself!

8. WORST – Colbie Caillat

Mmk so are you preggers? Because if not, this baby bumb is not allowed. And if so, you did NOT pick the appropriate dress for this event. It looks unfinished no?

7. BEST – Melody Thornton

This pussycat doll is on the money with this dress. Love the sequin detail on it. I wish her shoes were doing a little more for me though…

6. WORST – Paula Abdul

ZZZzzzz…what a bore. Ok the dress is not bad, but it’s not doing much either. Slap a statement necklace on that! Thank you…

5. BEST – Keri Hilson

Keri would’ve been further down the line had her hair and makeup been a little more BAM! Keri, where are your gorgeous blond streaks?? And I need a pop of color on your face when you wear all black…almost there.

4. WORST – Leona Lewis

I’m all for the futuristic cat woman look but Leona looks like she’s wearing a cinched garbage bag in this one. Sorry no bueno…cute booties though!

3. BEST – Fergie

When I saw her go up to the accept an award in this dress, I almost fainted. LOVE the studded element. We all know metal & studs are in this season. I would’ve loved to see this piece on Rihanna…hmmm.

2. WORST – Jermaine Jackson

This has nothing to do with fashion…he’s on this list just because of that greasy shape-up…tisk tisk tisk… (more like a Sharpie-up, looks like they used black marker to line that mess)

1. BEST – Alicia Keys

I love the color and the cut of this dress, and the detailing is beautiful! I kind of wish she had long flowing locks with this dress but the “dinner bun” works fine too. Props go out to her stylist during this show because her performance outfits were on point as well!

That’s all folks. Hit me up with Fierce or Foolish comments below. I welcome your opinions!!

Ciara in All Black Everything

I couldn’t help gawking over this irresistible black dress Ciara was donning at Leona Lewis’ album release party. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

There’s something about a FAB black dress that just makes your night. I feel like I have the most fun going out in all black…or straight up sparkly New Year’s Eve sequins!

**Runs to go find another Little Black Dress for the collection**

Sick Site Spotlight: FashionAir.com

If you’re really into online fashion videos, be sure to check out this site FashionAir. It’s a website completely dedicated to online fashion content and it’s quite intriguing, I must say. On your next study break or afternoon coffee break at work, I highly recommend hitting up this site. My favorite show on the site is called 7 Days of Chic.

They ask different women working in the fashion industry to video document their outfits for 7 days. It’s interesting seeing the different style choices and all.

They also have a Fashion Bites section with current fashion events/news/tidbits. It’s really cute.

Check it out sometime – here’s the link.

Cassie Attends Nars 15X15 Event

As much as I can’t stand Cassie’s lack of talent…I must say I adore her all-black ensembles.

Maybe her model figure sets these outfits off even more, or maybe her stylist just makes great choices. Either way, I’m lusting after this dress & over-the-knee boot combination. Love it!

And can I have this jacket please? Thanks!
