WE WAKE UP FLAWLESS - VAMPLIFE
Get Pretty - Birthday Behavior
Went to Bartolini’s Restaurant in Midlothian, IL with Mum for some birthday lunch. I wanted to achieve a dainty look for my lunch with mom, so I decided to two strand twist my hair with Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner, bobby pinned it down then attach my floral Akira Chicago headband for a romantic look. This is the first time I’ve jumped on the floral headband trend and I must say it’s A KEEPER!!

Sarah Jessica Parker + Manolo Blahnik Shoe Launch
SJP- Graced the Windy City with her GLAM this past Friday, March 7th, 2014. I was so excited when I was presented this opportunity to preview her collaboration with Manolo Blahnik through The Frockshop Dress rental boutique, in which I am a Brand Ambassador for the company.
Before SJP’s arrival, I decided to take a peek at what is expected from her awesome shoe line. This shoe collection is for EVERY women, no matter the age, whether you prefer a 2inch heel verses a 4inch heel she has whatever your toes are screaming for. Sarah Jessica Parker’s collection had a lot of range, everything from stilettos, flats, lace up booties, clutch purses and spring jackets.
You’ll see a few of my favs above!!
I decided to throw on my HM boyfriend jeans paired with my MUST Have Shoedazzle Beau+Ashe Katrice pumps
Art Vibes - [Allen Jones]
What to say? What to say? Or shall I say what not to say… Recently a picture of, British socialite Dasha Zhukova has been circling fashion blog since Martin Luther Kings birthday, displaying her sitting on a rather interesting chair. Some felt the image to be racist and objectifying to black women, since the socialite is of Caucasian descent. I decided not to post the photo of Dasha because I want to focus on the art itself.
After doing a little bit of kitty paw digging (lol), I came across the actual artist whom work has been controversial for decades. Allen Jones, is a British pop artist, best known for his over the top sculptures. He is known for making controversial art and being obsessed with the art of a women’s body.
When I first saw the image of Dasha Zhukova I automatically thought, “whoa what a dope CHAIR.” As an artist myself, I was taken back by the extremity of the pieces. Two things I go crazy over is ART + WEIRDNESS + PUSHING THE ENVELOPE, and these piece literally widened my eyes of inspiration. I immediately thought "purr kitty." LOL
The entire Allen Jones collection is priced at 2.6million. I think I’d prefer to make a knock off and save my "Millies" for a trip to London and check out the art exhibit for myself.
I say live on…PlayA.
Getcha Dominatrix on..PlayA.
Do ya thing PlayA!
It’s ART PlayA.
