3.1 Philip Lim 


Ever since 1986 and the first showing of Labyrinth I've loved thick eyebrows. Jennifer Connelly's acting wouldn't have been nearly as good in that movie if she didn't have those expressive eyebrows of hers and Bjrok wouldn't seem nearly as crazy without hers. It's like eyebrows emphasize any emotion your trying to express. Even famously expressionless models seem to have a little bit more emotion in their faces (they could just be smiling with their eyes though...tyra has taught them well.) So if you weren't blessed with rocking eyebrows I would rush out and buy an eyebrow pencil stat or go on E-bay and try and search for some of Connelly's pluckings.

I can just picture Carrie Fisher  laughing and muttering I told you so as she watches herself  in Star Wars being shown on TBS (way too many times in one month). The Princess Laya braids that once were only worn to impress nerd boys are all over the place, and they look awesome.  Even politicians are noticing the trend. Yullia Tymoshenko knows the power of the braid, you know she was the most popular girl in her class because she was always rocking cool hairstyles and maybe even styling the hair of a select friend or two. I bet she used the same tactics (good looks & favours) to win the election. If you don't know how to braid I would learn ASAP, apparently even LC braids her own hair.

I am  a huge fan of overpriced magazines. For some reason paying $14 for a magazine gives me a little adrenalin rush. British Vogue at $10.95 a pop always seems to be a bit better then it's American counter part that sells for a mere $4.95. When I travel suddenly a cheap magazine seems exotic and cool because of it's exaggerated price tag. Nylon might be easy to come by here, but is quite the find in Italy. The $10-$20 price bracket isn't getting me going these days however. Thank god then for Visionaire, whose issues are super pricey and  like little art pieces. This magazine (if you can even call it that) totally pulled an i told you soo, they are selling their issues for as much as $750. So no more free magazines ( ie. Vice), I think the old saying how good can the milk be if the cow is selling it for free really applies. $750 milk tastes allot better then the free stuff.

I never really understood the idea of the "boyfriend jean". Who wants to wear those ugly wide leg things with indistinguishable stain on them. Most importantly should you and your boyfriend really be able to fit into each others clothing? That said the pleated trouser pant that might have been worn by one of your physics teachers, is the new "boyfriend pant" (not that you would have ever dated the physics teacher.) I won't say I told you so, but if the physics teacher was here I'm sure he/she would site some mathematical equation about everything returning to it's original state which basically means it's coming back into style.

Did you ever feel like you hit your peak at 15? Well apparently you should because teen's are the new 20 somethings. Miley and Zac are the new Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle except they're actually in highschool. So even though I probably told you so in highschool, that 15 would be the best year of your life, if you are looking to get back to your youth here are a few suggestions:

1. Get a really obvious fake id (Not getting let into a bar is the ultimate way to look young. Cross your fingers you get IDed.)

2.Know all the lyrics to Highschool Musical 

3.Start riding your bike or better yet get your mum and dad to pick you up

Maybe they remind me of my youth, after all no school uniform is complete without one, but cardigans are definitely a staple this fall. Mr. Rogers loved them and I told you so should you. Cardigans make everything warmer and every outfit a little more work appropriate. An over-sized cardigan with some pretty tights and hot shoes and nothing else can still make a super sexy outfit. 

Hanging out with your (FAMOUS) MUM

I think this has always been a trend. However it seems like more, and more, people are taking advantage of their famous parent's status. There is no better way to get on the red carpet (with Demi) or get invited to a fashion show (with Anna) then going with your famous parent. That said, famous parents seem hard to come by these days. I think Angelina but be looking for a new adpotie though, so there is still hope.


What's better then pants attached a top, Nothing. Coco thinks so too, and I trust everything she does. So does Topshop, they  have a bunch of cute ones but they use the british lingo and call them
Playsuits. Playsuits are appropriate for every occasion in my opinion. Black for the office or colourful and sparkely for going out.

Justin Bobby who?

He's back and soo much hotter. Everyone said Justin Bobby (of the Hills), looked like a dirty rat and not in a good way. Well I think some people could see through his main to the beauty within (the hair). He's cut the main and I told you so he's a keeper. To bad for Audrina. 

50 cent says take your VITAMIN WATER

So Canada has always been a bit behind when it comes to getting the latest energy drinks. Remember the wait for
Redbull. So you can imagine how excited I was when I spotted a Vitamin Water vending machine at Walmart (don't ask me why I was there.) Vitamin water is like a miracle healing tool, it will cure even the stronger hang over. Be careful though because it's not really water, like one may think, it actually has a bunch of calories.
