Secret Diary of a Call Girl

Billie Piper is someone I loved on Doctor Who, and now I love her on Secret Diary of a Call Girl. The show is NOT as dirty as it sounds. It’s not PG, of course. It’s like Sex and the City, and who didn’t love that show? Well some people didn’t. And I didn’t like the Sex and the City movie.. but I digress!

Showtime put together a cute website for Secret Diary of a Call Girl, which included a style section. They show stuff Billie Piper’s character actually wore on the show. And I went through it to show you what stuff on the list is affordable in some way. Most of it is way too much, but you might be surprise ... Read More

Steal Rachel Bilson's Cheap Beauty Favorites

I love Girl With a Satchel’s Erica, and I especially loved what she said about the new Lucky Magazine cover with Rachel Bilson: “…while Rachel Bilson is pretty but won’t steal your boyfriend’s attention”. I also love Rachel Bilson. With so much love, why am I cranky?

Well, most of the fashionable items that Bilson told Lucky she likes are super expensive. Of course, I’m used to that with this magazine – or magazines in general. But if you really want something that Rachel Bilson covets, what can you get? Beauty products are less expensive than the leather jacket she’s selected, so let’s look at those.

Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara in Black – $8.  Bilson tells Lucky Magazine, “I love this mascara from Neutrogena. I put it on in the morning and never have to think about.” This seems to be a very popular mascara, I’d try it for sure.  ... Read More

Hilary Swank Promotes Gray Nail Polish

Hilary Swank was recently on The Oprah Winfrey Show and she wore the cutest outfit. It was a black blouse, black and white polka dot skirt, yellow belt, and for a final touch – gray nail polish. During the interview, Oprah noticed them. Hilary said she’d done them like that for Halloween, and she also got Oprah to admit that she didn’t so much love the color. Ha! Luckily these two have a report where it didn’t seem like Oprah was insulting Swank.

I think it depends on your skin tone for whether a gray nail polish will compliment you. No matter if you’re looking for a metallic nail polish, matte nail polish or sparkly nail polish – there’s a gray polish out there for you. The China Glaze polish color I’m listing is the one closest to the one Swank was wearing – it has an almost violet tint to it in the right light. If you’re not feeling gray, try silver nail polish. And if you hate it all? Be a rebel and go gold.

Marilyn Monroe Fashion for Parties

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

for ShesSmart.com

I’ve put together two party looks for a fun, flirty party this winter 09. Each look was inspired by glamor, kind of like Marilyn Monroe. But updated for a modern party girl who likes the golden age of Hollywood. You’ll see that I paired a satin corset (one is a pleated corset and one is a ruched corset but both are from Charlotte Russe!) with a fun black skirt. One black skirt is a mesh tiered number by Forever 21, and the other is a bubble skirt from Forever 21. Each look got a faux fur shrug, a tiara element (either an actual tiara or a clip for the hair with a tiara symbol), nail polish and black liquid eyeliner.

Black liquid eyeliner is great for a glamorous look, especially for parties. Singer Taylor Swift is always using black eyeliner (winged just a bit out on the edges) on just the tops of her eyelids. It really brings some definition to your eyes. And as always, everything in this look is under $100.00!

Some of Items in this set (to view all click the picture): ... Read More
