Heaven in 2011...

Well... it's the time of year that when I'm not dog butt broke I start looking around at what is coming up on the fashion scene to see if anything peaks my interest.  For anyone who follows fashion, this is OLD news but for me it causes a feeling of utopia in my stomach that I just can't get rid of.  What can I say?  I'm female.  Just because I really DON'T like shopping doesn't mean I don't like clothes and everything that sparkles and is beautiful that goes with them.  And don't get me started on the hats.  And the SHOES.  And the watches.  *sigh*  Some years I just can't keep my focus.

If I had to pick favorite designers of off the top of my head, they would have to be Prada and bebe.  Sweets was introduced to bebe last year when we were on our honeymoon in Honolulu.  There's a bebe store on the strip out there and I was sucked into it not once, not twice but three times.  In fact I'm wearing those jeans right this very moment.  LOVE them!

I'm not sure what I would call my fashion type.  I have been told before that some of the things I wear are a little odd but it looks good on me because of my personality.  Hmm... never really did figure out if that was a compliment or what.  But, I just like what I like and I'm not really a fan of the cookie cutter, Hollister & Old Navy kinda stuff.  Although I do have clothing from both stores.

Anyway, you know how they say everything happens for a reason?  Well, I cut my bank card up last year because I was really ticked off about something and have just never gotten around to replacing it.  (Truth be told, I really don't miss it.)  But then I come across the video for bebe's spring/summer 2011 fashion show during NY's Fashion Week and I know why that card has never been replaced, thank goodness!





"I think we have the best collection in the history of bebe."  You got that right!  Wow!  I'm drooling like a baby that's cutting teeth here!

Now Prada?  Not so much this season.  I can't quite put my finger on why I don't care for their look but it really might have something to do with it looking like some of the models are carrying two tailed dead rodent carcasses as part of their outfits.  All I can say is "ewww!"  Who knows WHAT that is.  Some of the shoes are cute though.  :)


Don't worry Sweets.  I'm not going to break the bank on new clothes cause that's just stupid and not something I would normally do to begin with.  I might pick up a few new fierce ass outfits though because I'm now a proud card carrying member of bebe's frequent shopper's club and they DO have a store in Indianapolis.  SHOPPER'S CLUB... NOT credit card!  There is a BIG difference between the two.

Breathe in... breathe out... breathe in... breathe out...  

Happy Monday!

*hugs*

  1. Fashion does nothing for this cat, I just like my pretty hat.
    As i walk round bare all day, even when I step out to play.
    It doesn't scare most, as I'm as sublte as a ghost.
    I'm sneaky too, in whatever I do.
    But I guess fashion is more a girl thing, but at least I'm glad it's almost spring.

  2. I agree..the bebe was great, the Prada, not so great. However, your pineapple upside down cake was a thing to behold! If it was half as good as it looked, you had a winner.

  3. Pat- Yeah, I remember putting a dress on Katie, the cat that I had when I was a kid. Learned REALLY quick that cats do not like clothes!

    Mommy- Eating the last piece tonight since I felt a little guilty about the thought of eating the whole thing at once. ;)
