Take A Glimpse Into Pre Fall

Take a look at some Pre Fall highlights at V Magazine online. The feature includes standouts from Calvin Klein, YSL, Givenchy, Zac Posen, Dolce and Gabbana, Lanvin, and Proenza Schouler, pictured above. I love the use of color and chunky accessories in this shot, you had me at lace up booties. Check the black dress with the sequin draped shoulder in the Givenchy highlight. Do the addition, factor in the subtractions, multiply the funds, and divide accordingly.

No Doubt Performs On The Today Show!

Luckily, I am up every morning between 8-830 am, no matter how late I get home, and got to catch this performance. Love her. Love them! Gwen Stefani is the reason I started wearing glitter in sixth grade. The rest is history.
