Designer Sex Anyone…

In Daily Musings on February 8, 2012 at 5:12 pm

Well it’s finally happened, there is now a Louis Vuitton condom! Priced at $68.  Now wouldn’t $69 have been a better price point? (smirk!) Why oh why do we need a designer condom?? and for $68!!!! I think I’m extremely fabulous, but I don’t think I need a Louie condom, Trojans will do!  Apparently an architect from Georgia Republic, Irakli Kiziria designed the condom, there is no affiliation with the esteemed designer store, So don’t go running to your nearest Louis Vuitton store to buy a pack  (ladies you should always have your own pack of condoms at the ready).  Irakli and his team are hoping to launch the product on World Aids Day and donate the proceeds to amFAR, The Foundation for Aids Research.  It’ll be interesting to know what Mr. Marc Jacobs has to say about this.  Marc might find it funny but I don’t think Bernard Arnault, the head of LVMH will.  If nothing else I can see a major lawsuit coming Mr. Kiziria’s way. Happy Hump Day!


The Ultimate Black Leggings…

In New Loves! on February 8, 2012 at 11:24 am

 Are by Sassybax!  Black leggings are a staple of every fashionista’s wardrobe.  This simple item can be dressed up or down. Start with a pair of good quality leggings, which have the right texture and thickness, there is nothing worse than a pair in cheap thin material.  With your leggings you can start with a turtle neck, V-neck or crew neck and then throw on any combination of items over it.  Try a wrap dress, an oversized sweater, a tuxedo jacket, a shift dress, a mini, your options are endless. It’s all about layering.  In the spring swap out the sweaters for tank tops or camisoles and then add a cute light weight dress with a cardi or jacket.  Try different pieces until you get your look, and always wear the right boots/shoes!  An ankle boot or knee/over the knee boot is preferable, (especially in fall/winter) if you have to wear a shoe, wear a high-heeled Mary Jane or closed toe pump. Wearing sandals can get tricky, because  if you don’t do it right, it can make you look like a “working girl”, you’ve got to know what you’re doing here ladies.  The important thing is to find a look that works for your shape and size and is completely flattering to you.  The ultimate dress up, is to throw on a fur coat/jacket, some high-heeled over the knee boots, a piece of statement jewelry and your most adored handbag and your good to go!  This combination is a shout out to the most stylish woman I know who is very special to me back home in London.

While on my own continuous quest for the perfect leggings, I came across the Sassybax range.  These leggings are something else. They are of high quality fabric and the most important thing is they give you a little lift and tuck where necessary (always a good thing!), giving you a smooth overall  appearance.  There are two versions, the bottom lifting  and the cigarette pant.  Follow this link and take a look  for yourself.

Available at SaksFreshpair and other online stores.
