First up, we have the Sublime Radiant Powder. The bottle is fashioned beautifully, not unlike a perfume bottle, and when squeezed, emits a soft, shimmery powder that can be used on the face, body and even hair. It comes with a detachable butterfly pin that can be used as a brooch! More suited for late-night glamour instead of daytime use. This is on my wishlist...
Next, we have the Meteorites Powder Pearls, encased in a lilac tin. These powder pearls are a mix of four colours; beige, pink, white and gold. Brush the powder lightly over your face to illuminate your skin and give it shimmer and light. Also comes in a pressed powder compact. Yummo!
The KissKiss lipstick is next on our list of mouthwatering makeup items from Guerlain's new range. It is available in two shades: Sparkling White and Strawberry Red. I honestly don't understand the logic of white lipstick. Apparently it's a shimmery, sheer, pearly lipstick that doesn't provide fully solid colour, but why? Anyway...it comes in a mauve-coloured twist-up tube and is decorated with a butterfly. ...White lipstick, anyone?
Unfortunately, these items aren't so fashionably priced, with the cheapest, the KissKiss gloss, being US$28, which is about AUD$43. Boohoo. Oh well, didn't expect much.

Lately, in Celeb-land a new trend has arisen (< ---correct grammar?). , which I am calling the "Moss Ball". Personally, I really dislike it, but who knows, meybee in a month or two, I myself will be lusting over my very own ball of moss (:

some delish wooden prada platforms, with stressed paint for effect. lack of colour galore! love the chunky heel look :D
nice and simple wedges from Christian Lacroix. funny plaid base ^^
beige fabric and black leather chain strap bag from zac posen. yummo ;)

we all want the new black right?
then you can follow these easy, idiot-proof suggestions! *gasp!*
* Second hand- op shops, Vinnies, vintage outlets, you name it get your hands on some pre-loved!
* Renting- i know it sounds random but why buy when you can hire? www.lovemeandleaveme.com has designer handbags, shoes, sunnies and more that make great eye candy.
* Reinvention- pull out that nice dress and top up on accessories or heels instead of a whole new outfit.
* Swapping- swap parties make great fun :]
* Tone it down- save all that Clinique foundation ><>
*DIY handbag- this is the new Katie Holmes 'it' bag. check out www.etsy.com, plenty of inspiration.
OR you could always just buy one pair of Louboutins instead of three ^^ ezy peazy.
Unfortunately the designers don't really get the rules. Fancy a $53,000 something Jean Paul Gaultier fur coat?
credit crunch chic indeed

Hils looking very stylish in her mustard yellow blouse and high-waisted black skirt. Love this colour combo with the mustardy-yellowishness from her blouse and the bright red she is sporting on her lips. & love her hair like this
= bright pops of clashing colours teamed with black
Haydn P. teaming a basics with a trilby and matching purple oversized bag and scarf. Trying to go incognito, but alas, the paparazzi are just too good.
=wardrobe basics with eye-catching accesories for a chic but casual look
And finally, to finish off our trio of election day looks,one of my faves, Ms Bilson in an LBD, black tights and oriental blue flats and her favourite fringed bag (also seen in this post). Prolly would've looked quite drab on anyone else, but rachel still looks fabb in it. This girl never ceases to amaze me.
= classic pieces updated with this seasons hottest accesories
Notice the boootiful 'I VOted' sticker :)

p.s. if you bothered to look at our post times, you would notice that they are in the middle of the night. so no, we're not insomniacs. we just live in oz ^^
yet again, you should know that ;)
it was a fine photo finish, with 'viewed' just taking it out with an ecstatic bart cummings now with the golden dozen.
it was very chilly but it didn't stop all those hats, fascinators and frocks:
Fancy frocks much? :L anything goes.
