I love Katy Perry and I love platforms so when I saw her in these shoes in the “Thinking of You Video” I almost flipped!!1
She is wearing Giambattista Valli Cut Out Platforms retailing for about $450
Here is a similar shoe by Jessica Simpson for $90

Nine West shoes also has something similar. I believe the shoes are on sale now, and who doesn’t love a good sale! A black suede platform can update your look instantly! Paired with a tulip skirt or pencil skirt (similar to Katy) you are ready for the office or throw on your favorite cocktail dress and you a ready for a night of fun!

So you all know that we are huge fans of Vintage clothing and styles. I found this website that has great vintage pieces at reasonable prices. Here are a few pics of some of the pieces that I like



They have everything….tops, dresses, shoes, and other accessories. The only problem is they only have limited pieces in limited sizes. I guess that is the case with all vintage so you have to check constantly for new items, because they go fast!!!! http://www.loislanevintage.com/
Acid Wash Denim
You’ve seen them on celebrities from LaLa Vazquez, Ciara, and Alicia Keys. Well if you don’t have a pair in your wardrobe, you might want to get a pair! Acid wash jeans was a staple item for the summer and now for the fall. You can rock these NOW or LATER
Rock your acid wash jeans NOW with a white tank, statement necklace and killer heels!

On September 9, 2009 Cycle 13 of America’s Next Top Model will air on the CW Network. This cycle as you may know is the “petite cycle” 5’7″ and under. I wanted to audition being that I am 5’4″ but I said if I make it, I’m not quitting my job so what’s the point. I need security…it’s a recession lol. Anyway the photos of the girls selected for this season are out and I just hope they BRING IT and represent for the vertically challenged.

There will be some changes to the show. Tyra has decided not to replace Paulina because of “budgetary problems” so there will be a guest judge every week and the final decision will be made by Tyra, Miss J, and Nigel. I can’t wait for this season to start.
