Simply Stylist is a part of the Caro Marketing Firm which brings designers and stylists together.

They bring in designers with a variety of looks, from street to red carpet…







For a few years now they have been hosting pop up shops, where designers set up booths to show their latest creations, and the team at Simply Stylist invite a some of the most prominent stylists in the business. like Lindsay Albanese and Monica Rose







This trend has really become a hit. I have seen make-up pop up shops, bridal pop up shops, even pop up shops hosted by major department stores. Be on the look out, I am sure one will POP UP near you!

Denim with Heart = Siwy Jeans

February 7, 2011 § 1 Comment

I went to the Siwy Denim event, and I have to say, these are my favorite jeans of all the designer jeans I have ever tried on and/own. I LOVE the fit. I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on my Siwy jeans when I wear them. Celebs like Kate Moss, Megan Fox, Rachel Bilson, Miley Cyrus and more have been spotted wearing the line.

I had a little chat with Michelle Siwy and she explained the design of her brand. I asked her about the design on the back pocket and she said “It’s not just a heart she said, It’s an Open Heart”. How awesome is that! I not only fell in love with the jeans, but I fell in love with Michelle too. One of the most popular styles of Siwy Denim are their cutoff shorts.

Below is Michelle Siwy modeling her sexy cuttoffs

Vivienne Westwood & Marchesa Side by Side

January 18, 2011 § Leave a comment

What caught my attention the most about the Golden Globes this past Sunday was that Georgina Chapman (one of the halves that makes up Marchesa, and one of my FAVE designers) and Helena Bonham Carter, who was wearing Vivienne Westwood were sitting next to each other at the Globes.  Of course the winners and the movie stuff was interesting too… 🙂

This is Georgina above at the 2010 Oscars. This dress sort of reminds me of the Marchesa dress that Olivia Wilde wore this year to the Globes. Or maybe that’s just me.

I love that Helena Bonham Carter stuck to her own style. She is wearing Vivienne Westwood, which is opening a store in LA very soon. Can’t wait!!!!

The best dressed at the Globes this year IMHO was

Anne Hathaway in a gorj sequined Armani Prive dress.


This Manicure is two weeks old – and it’s still perfect!

I love getting my nails done, I mean it feels so good to have my nails look awesome, but it sucks when my nail polish chips. And another thing I hate is drying time!!!! grrrr!

A little over two weeks ago I tried this new nail polish technology called Soft Color Gels, at my local nail shop, which works just like regular nail polish, but better! Not only has my nail polish lasted without a chip, but there  was literally no drying time!!!! It was pretty revolutionary if you ask me.

I’m ready for all the holiday parties. My friend Brent took this picture of my mani last night!

I used to plan my day around what time I was going to get my nails done, what outfit and shoes I would wear, etc…

But No more!

I have the brand Shellac on my nails, but OPI also makes the gel polish too. I’m in!

“It Get’s Better!” *Living Proof*

November 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

My friend Michael Anthony, created this internet sensation youtube vid as part of the awesome “It Get’s Better Campaign“. Which has been written about in countless blogs and made Yahoo’s homepage last week.

These videos are so amazing, touching, and inspiring. Author and journalist, Dan Savage started this campaign and it has become life changing for many gay individuals who have found a support system in these online videos.

Some celebrities who have joined the campaign and made their own videos, who are both gay and straight, include, Ellen Degeneres, Kathy Griffin, Obama, Wicked Cast Members, Ke$ha, Tim Gunn, Perez Hilton, etc…

And it really did get better!!!
