Month Of Fantasy... Jerkish Tip #320, When Enough is too Much

Okay so do I really need to go into depth with this topic.... Ladies Makeup is used to enhance what you already have. You need a little more lash, try mascara. Need to even out that skin, try a little foundation. Need to make those eyes pop, a little color will do. You see where I am going. But at the end of the day all these funky colors and crazy makeup just makes you look less desirable unless you're going for that whole Joker, Mimi (from the Drew Carey Show), prostitute look. Remember if you are going to beat your face around the block, you might as well not wear any make-up at all. And Fellas its 2010 can we stop dying our hair all these funky colors with awful designs. I'm all about individuality, but there is a time and a place. The last I looked Halloween came once a year. Its "Late" (corny, not on time, out dated, sad) and you just need to stop.

I Loved the show, I loved the movie, I absolutely hated that they made a sequel... Until today. I just seen the new Trailer and Poster for the "Sex and the City 2" movie and needless to say, I'M THERE... you just have to see it for yourself.

SIGH... I cant wait. :)

The Month Of Fantasy... Reading Is Paramount

Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me
{A Guide to Living with Impeccable Grace and Style}
By: Lucia van der Post

I Love Your Style
{How to Define and Refine Your Personal Style}
By: Amanda Brooks

Every so often, when time permits, I love to spend my day in a Barnes & Noble or Borders book store (F.Y.I I'm Team Borders). This week time happened to permit such an excursion. I could literally spend my whole day in a book store. Tell we where else can you find movies, music, magazines, books, a cafe and candy. Anyway... It wouldn't be the "Month Of Fantasy" without the mention of a couple good books. One of the books that I picked up and recommend is "I Love Your Style, How to Define and Refine Your Personal Style" by Amanda Brooks. This book would be great for those who love magazines. Its not a hard read at all. The book is full of fashion advice, personal stories, style icons and pictures. Lots and Lots of pictures. its an easy breezy book full of vintage "know how" and current "say so". The second book I picked up and recommend is "Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me, A Guide to Living with Impeccable Grace and Style" by Lucia van der Post. This book would be for you girls who need a little extra help in the etiquette department. The author took her life discoveries of "know how and say so" and turned it into a 368 pages of advice. From practical tips and first hand recommendations, to embarrassing stories and life lessons Lucia takes you on a journey to become the best you in case your mother wasn't around to tell you to say "Please & Thank You". I bought other books such as "The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales" and "Holiday on Ice" by David Sedaris, but since this is a fashion blog those purchases will be discussed another time.

Whats Fantasy without using your imagination.

The Month Of Fantasy... Sasha Fierce


Now I know you all might be wondering What makes Beyonce a Fantasy... Well Honey B can put on one hell of a show. Bright Lights, big music, Big personality, with bigger hair. She is one of the greatest talents of our generation. Off stage is another story. Beyonce tends to have Janet Jackson syndrome. She becomes very lackluster. Her voice is very faint, she gets all silly and giggly and at times can be a little lifeless. Unfortunately she has the wardrobe to match this monotonous personality. But every so often Sasha shows her face off stage and takes over Beyonces interior and exterior. The photo above proves at times the fanciful production Sasha puts on can also translate in real life. Here, Beyonce edged out a pink Chanel tweed jacket with a pair of 3inch cut off shorts, a graphic-tee, jewelry and sunglasses. The look is simple and fab and any young solicalite would love it. For Beyonce its a change from the messy, dull, unappealing style, her and her stylist conjuers up on any normal day of the week.. She is a vision of Fabulousness and in this picture she looks like a Fantasy (to me).

The Month of Fantasy... Super Hero Fashion

Jean Paul Gaultier's Spiderman inspired dress

Dior Couture's version of Wonder Woman (2001)

Thierry Mugler's Chimera dress inspired by X-Men body mutating (2003)

Gareth Pugh's Batman inspired dress (2007)

What's fantasy without cartoons, comics and "superheros". Every so often designers will dedicate a collection to the heroins who we have all come to adore and love. On March 6, 2010, the Orlando Regional History Center had an "Out of This World" Fashion Show, which Featured ADT Design Students and their Comic Book Superhero and Villain inspired garments. Celebrity Judges for the Event included, Chris Kirkpatrick (NSync), Sven Bode (Orlando Style Magazine), Ben Chmura (Season 7 Project Runway), Jesse LeNoir (Season 7 Project Runway), and (not-interviewed) Douglas Nesbitt. I lowkey love comic books and openly adore fashion, so anytime designers combines the two, I'm ecstatic. Remember these garments are not to be wore on the streets (unless your Lady GaGa), they are meant to imitate art.

The Month of Fantasy... Be Inspired

CREATIVE DUO: Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott

Mert Alas from Turkey and Marcus Piggott from Wales met in London in 1999 and have been a killer duo ever since. They first gained recognition when they did their first project for the magazine Dazed & Confused. This gig actually bought the duo their first editorial. The magazine was so impressed, they were kind enough to make one of the images the cover page photo. Their resume includes projects done for Pop, W, Vogue and Numero magazine. Also they worked with desirable brands such as Louis Vuitton, Missoni, Roberto Cavalli, Bulgari and Fendi just to name a few. Their images are the epitome of fantasy and originality.

Are you Inspired, If not...
I'll be nice, lets just say you'd be crazy not to be.

The Month Of Fantasy... Shoe Whore

MISSONI $580.00

In respect to the Month of Fantasy, I felt the need to give all of my fellow shoe whores a gift. My first gift comes in the form of recommendation. Here are a few pairs of seemingly high priced stilts that will definitely turn the weakest shirt, pant combination into a show stopper. My second gift comes in the form of visual stimulation. In my travels I came across a website that would give any shoe lover an instant orgasm. WWW.RAWSHOES.WORDPRESS.COM is an easy to navigate shoesite full of the latest and greatest in visually invigorating footwear.

Remember though I can be a big Jerk, I'm a Jerk with a Big gift giving, foot fetish having heart.
