Now that I no longer live in NYC, I do not have easy access to the Ralph Lauren Rugby store, and I have been going through some serious 'dress like a rich college kid' withdrawal.
I was on the Ralph Lauren site today and was so excited to find out that they are relaunching their rugby.com site as an e-commerce web site. Now I can shop online like a collegiate crackhead. This is all happening in mid-August, just in time for the start of school. I'm so psyched that I might have to go back to college and hang with some frat boys. Straight up Old School Frank-the-Tank style.

A 52 year old woman sues Victoria's Secret over an alleged thong injury.
No, the injury was not in her crotch.
A piece of jewelry trim flew off her thong and into her eye.
52 year old women should not be wearing bling on their crotches.

How fabulous is her fit? The pale pink dress has a repeat print of Bambis getting their throat slit. Awesome. I luv it!

Yves Saint Laurent has passed away on June 1, 2008.
He was born in 1936 in Oran, Algeria. After winning first prize in the International Wool Secretariat contest for his asymetrical cocktail dress in 1954, Saint Laurent immediately went to work for Christian Dior. Saint Laurent became Haute Couture designer when Dior died in 1958. Saint Laurent completed a total of six collections for the house of Dior, beginning with the highly successful Trapeze collection.
He opened his own couture house, YSL, in 1962.
The Riv Gauche boutiques for women were established in 1966, and menswear was added in 1974. His muse was Catherine Deneuve for many years.
He frequently used ethnic themes in his garments, as well as bright colors contrasted with black. His day clothes have a slightly masculine flavor, while his luxurious evening wear is tinged with fantasy. He is famous for "Le Smoking" tuxedo jacket, see-through blouses (1968), peasant blouses, bolero jackets, pantsuits, and smocks.
In July 1965, Yves Saint Laurent unveils the infamous Mondrian haute couture fall-winter '65/'66 collection.
In Summer 1966, Saint Laurent was the first couturier to show his Haute Couture show live on the internet.

The fashion world will miss him greatly.

... is this crap music popular? And isn't he on trial now for having sex with 14 yr olds? What music exec decided that this is a good song? I'm confused as to how something like this comes to fruition. I had to look up the lyrics online because it's just so ridiculous to me. Moral of this story: Money and popularity take precedent over talent. I really wish he was still trapped in that damn closet.
R.KELLY - HAIR BRAIDER LYRICS
Zig-Zag straight back doin my hairbraider / zig-zag straight back doin my hairbraider
Hairbraider huh I'm doin my hairbraider
and she do my hair so good that I'm gonna tip her
The way she strip for me I gotta tip her
Hair grease comb now shawty get readay
Bout to roll threw rain on ya like confettay
Can't wait to see the booty shake like jellay
Zig-zag braids got em lookin like spaghettay
Ohh she like me (like me)
Ohh she sexy (sexy)
She freaky and on top of that she (braider)
(Hustla) a fly mama

She says that the style that I want is gonna take her like all night
Well thats cool wit me so lets get it
How convenient because when she's done I'm gonna hit like all night
and it no other chick like my hairbraider.
I can't wait to see her when it comes to the weekend

She can't take me on the weekday cause her man be tweakin
Now she got many styles from the twist down to extensions
And I got many styles (zig-zags straight back)
Man she so cool wit me
Hang wit the dudes wit me

She keeps it trill wit me
Zig-Zags straight back doin my hairbraider (repeat 3x)
Oh she braid my hair in the middle of the night
Oh sometimes it gets so late she spend the night
And my hairbraida so hot I call her my booty shop
She so fly ain't no other chick like my...
(Chorus to fade...)

Whether or not you are a Hillary Clinton supporter, you cannot deny that this nutcracker is the best thing ever. She comes packaged in a stars & stripe superhero-like action figure box with the taglines, "Stainless Steel Thighs" and "Cracks the Toughest Nuts."
Check it out at www.hillarynutcracker.com.
So, c'mon ladies - let's go bust some nuts and change the world.

Sooo... I was gettin' my Google on searching for a gift for my friend, and I came across these glamorous rubber gloves on the Carolyn's Kitchen website. Yes, they also carry the cutest retro aprons, but c'mon.....These gloves are ridiculous. Just down right genius. Not only do they make me actually want to clean like a crazed 1950's housewife, I feel they can add a much needed touch of sophistication when it's time to bitch-slap someone.

My boyfriend, Mr.Marc Jacobs, has done it again.
We all know about the Murakami Exhibit now showing at the Brooklyn Museum. However, I recently came across these pics of an apparent LV Street Market that is also part of the exhibit. This market is obviously supposed to be a replication of Canal Street. Hellloo?! So, are those real bags in the pics or are they fake? Why wasn't I asked to help out with this installation? Do you think they have secret back rooms with all the 'good' stuff? Why don't they have a dude in fake bling selling mixtapes? Why haven't they asked to have Cookie Cutter apparel as part of this? These are the questions I ponder. I must go see this immediately.

Yesterday I bought my first tube of anti-wrinkle cream. As much as I would like to think I'm better than this, I am apparently a victim of this cruel, superficial world in which we live. I feel guilty every time I apply the cream around my eyes, yet deep down, I really hope this shit works.
I have been a huge stalker - ugh, I mean fan - of DJ Neil Armstrong for a good 5 years or so. He is one of the original members of the 5th Platoon, a collective of DJ's from NYC to the Bay Area. Nonstop, Bittersweet, Sweeet, Original, 2orginal -- are just a few of his creative mix cds that have sent me to another level. I have been honored to meet him at Undrcrwn's photoshoots and parties. Besides being one of the most nicest, bling-free, soft-spoken guys I have ever met, he is just mad talented. And now, Jay-z, the Hova of all Hovas, has recognized such talent. Neil has been asked to be Jay-z's DJ for The Heart of the City Tour. He is currently rocking the stage with Jay-z and Mary J. Congrats to Neil!!! I guess the nice guys do win in the end.
