bag sniffing dj’s

I don’t own a Louis Vuitton, but I love the way they smell.  We’re giving away designer bags on the radio station I run starting next week.  Shopping for the bags was amazing.  Having the bags delivered has been even more amazing.

So of course I have to ooh and ahh over it when it’s delivered because odds are good I won’t be dropping $800 on a bag anytime soon.   Oh yea, I also sniffed it:

Whatevs, it’s amazing, it smells like rich.

When my bag sniffing experience was over I was excited to discover a package on my desk.  I usually get cd’s, and more cd’s and sometimes rum, so a square box is kind of good find:

I’m all about food, especially lemon cake:

Then I noticed this little note on the package, duh, of course I want to know who sent me lemony deliciousness!

Even before he sent me snacks, Skywalker is one of my favorite dj’s ever.   So sweet.  Here’s to some fun deliveries to you this holiday season!

the hunt for the smirnoff sequin dress

I swear, every time I turn on the tv this commercial is running:

While the flavored vodka does sound amazing, what I’m really craving is the navy blue sequin top  dress that the actress, Roxanne McKee, is wearing in the commercial.

I need this topdress  Navy sequins, a longer fit, deep v, short sleeves (that look to be a little longer too) I’ve been searching for it for days!  It’s not a dress, too short for that, maybe a tunic?

Update!  It is a dress!  After tweeting Smirnoff they were kind enough to provide this info:

So it IS  a dress.  French Connection Samantha is what you need to be on the lookout for:

A few quick searches for the French Connection sequin Samantha dress came up with a bunch of different results

You could purchase Kris Jenner’s off Ebay:

You could get this gold version at Saks for $89 !!!

Or this green version from Bloomingdales for almost $300

If you google “French Connection Samantha” you’ll find tons of different versions.   Happy shopping!!!

Below you’ll find my attempts at finding the look before I knew what it was (thought it was a top)

______________________________________________________________________________________

I’ve searched everywhere and haven’t found the exact one yet, but each of these are close:

This DKNY top ($62.99 on Zappos) is slightly similar, comes in black and a royal blue.  I almost wish they could combine the black and royal blue to get closer to the navy but sadly this is interwebs shopping, not Photoshop, can’t adjust the hue.

This Tinley Road Peplum Top ($79 on Piperlime) is another that’s kinda sorta similar, but not spot on:

A black sequin deep v version ($52.99 at Macy’s)

This cowl neck sequin top seems to have the length and the fit of the shirt  I’m looking for, but not the color.  ($45.99 at Macy’s)

I thought for sure I’d find the top on Polyvore instead I found these bad boys.   Sequin jeans shorts?  Really?

In addition to the hot shorts, I did come across a few more amazing tops.   This Oleg Cassani Vintage top ($413.36 on Farfetch)

This navy Aquilano Rimondi sequin top ($555.08 on Farfetch)

I’ll keep searching, if you spot anything similar hit me with a link.

birchbox & bb cream

What’s better than a Friday night? A Friday night when your Birchbox arrives, weekend + makeup = win.

Bellinis & Birchbox are the perfect combo, FYI.

I’ve had a pretty good Birchbox run the last few months (full sized products I’ll actually use, samples I enjoy) so I was kind of expecting to be let down by this one. That didn’t happen.

While I love all the goodies Birchbox throws my way each month, my absolute favorite beauty find this year was BB Cream. I use Garnier BB Cream, it’s magical. Moisturizes, evens tone, renews, brightens and it even has SPF.

I realized just how much I loved this product last week. I started using it at the beginning of the summer (and instantly got compliments on my skin) and ran out of that first bottle just last week. Not only will it make you look better, it’s an amazing bargain. I was afraid that the cream wouldn’t last a month and one tube got me through five months !

What’s been your best beauty find in 2012?

if i had a million dollar’s – 2012 victoria’s secret fantasy bra

This should really be if “I had a million dollars, and a model physique, and another million and a half.   The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was filmed last night and Alessandra Ambrosio rocked the 2012 Fantasy bra:

Yup, that looks about right for a $2.5 million bra.   This bra has a 20 carat diamond centerpiece, rubies, sapphires and diamonds of just about every shade.  Victoria’s Secret has rolled out fantasy bras since 1996, you can check out the whole boob and bling spectrum here

Got me thinking about the most expensive bra I’ve ever purchased.  I can’t remember but odds are good it was probably some insane contraption to sport a bridesmaid dress.  Those are never sexy.
