NAIL IT! Hot & Sweet

Today's nail pick:

Fun fact: I'm often asked why I have one nail in a different color.
It all began when I couldn't decide over two new nail polishes.
So I said, why choose- I'll have both.
Lesson of the story: You Can Have It All!!!

SO FRESH: Who's that Girl? It's Material Girl

Also becoming known on a first name basis, Lola (aka Lourdes Leone) is taking on the fashion world by launching a line with mother Madonna. The line rightfully named Material Girl is a cool collection of everything 80's rocker chic.
Blogging about her luvs and loathes, such as her admiration of model Agyness Deyn and her dislike for gladiator sandals "OK but no joke gladiator sandals are OUT".

Material Girl launches August 3 at Macy's

SO FRESH: Alexander McQueen's resort 2011 collection

Sarah Burton is the new empress to the throne of the late Alexander McQueen's line. The resort collection inspired by samrai warriors and Hans Bellmer's dolls is said by Burton to be "juxtapose the pale and the delicate with the bold and armorial. It’s about a highly structured torso that gives way to a more fluid silhouette or drop waists that lead to a finned trouser or skirt."

Pretty Ballerinas summer flats

I sprained my ankle. What degree? Not sure, but what I do know is that it's been 3 weeks and I still can't slip into my towering heels. Hold the gasps!
So now I'm obsess with finding the perfect flats to match the perfect summer frocks.

Pretty Ballerinas has just that. I visited the Westmount boutique last month (pre-sprain) and was tickled pink with their lovely flats offering.
What's more, for those with narrow feet (like moi), there is a shoe for you- try one of their almond-toe designs with an elastic backing great for a comfy fit.

Check out their spring/summer collection!
{these are made with real cork!}

Go Green - summer's fave nail color!

Shopping last week I spotted a fellow hipster and I saw green, green with envy. Her nail polish, a cool shade of emerald, was so striking that I marched straight into Pharmaprix.
My pick: Sally Hansen #28 Mint Sprint. Plus, luving the insta-dry formula which gets you glamed in 60 seconds!

MMVAs Dos and Don'ts and Don'ts!

I was sucked in.
I just had to see who was wearing what at the MMVAs.
There were some hits, but unfortunately like the lack luster show's production [ie Drake's malfunctioning ear piece causing halt to his performance!], many wears simply missed the fashion spot!
