Floor Legnth Black Dresses

I love Rosario Dawson and Sharkira always (well, most of the time) looks great BUT Mariah in a full floor length black dress??? She actually can pass for a well respected singing adult when she's not wearing a mini skirt and a XS pastel pink tank top. I say well done ladies, great choices for the Obama's inauguration.

Stephen Sprouse + Louis Vuitton = Neon Graffiti Bags

Its all about color, color, color for spring. Stephen Sprouse made that LOUD and clear with his semi-new (re-release of the LV graffiti bags) collection. Louis Vuitton threw a huge party for the occasion, so big it needed three locations in NYC. All the punked out neon colors means the 80's style won't be fading away any time soon. Just another example of streetwear influencing designers.

MCQ Alexander Mc Queen For Target

Read the title, nuff said. Oh yeah, drops March 1st. One request, I love the muted color pallet but he could have added a yellow.

Casa la Femme Resturant - Belly dancing AND food

Looking for some place different to eat? The newest hotspot for 09 is Casa la Femme in the West Village, NYC. This full fledge Mediterranean restaurant is complete with chandeliers, drapes, hooka, exotic deserts and exotic dancers… I mean belly dancer. The reviews said this was a great date spot but personally I don’t know how I feel about taking my boyfriend for drinks and watching girls who can shake it better than me. On another note, I will definitely go with the girls to smoke the hooka and get real Egyptian food.

Down Side: There are only 5 entrees so you’ll probably just be getting multiple appetizers which will add up for a pricey bill. Preview the menu here. Reservations are preferred.

Casa La Femme

140 Charles St. (Charles and Washington Sts.)


PS. This venue used to be in Midtown on First Ave. and 59th St.

Is this the same Egyptian restaurant where Carrie took her friends on her birthday and accidently invited Mr. Big and his date?

Earlier this year (sorry I mean last year) my coworker came back from lunch excited about a new store opening on 34th St. A week later when the pink awning went up we immediately researched the name Kira Plastina.

Turns out she's a 16yr old Russian brat who spent daddy's money wisely into making her own brand of clothing. A few weeks later when their official website launched in the US we were highly disappointed. I simply didn't get it. It was definitely geared to a young, trendy customer, think Forever 21 but higher than forever 21 prices. The clothes not only were boring but poorly made. That didn't stop the stores from spreading like chicken pox. Another location suddenly popped up in Soho and on 5th Ave (what made her think she can open on 5th Ave) for a total of 12 stores in the US (other locations in malls outside of NY).

Fast forward less then a year later the golden child is forced to close most of the US locations and stop "enormous" plans for expansion due to poor economic climate. The only people surprised by this being the store employees as they had no idea what was going on. "We were so mistreated by this company in so many ways, it honestly doesn't surprise me that its failed. She is a rude, spoiled little brat who thinks she can design but really is just playing pretend. We in the shops had only a weeks notice that we would be losing our jobs, and the day before Christmas to boot..." says one angry sales associate. I personally never seen more than 5 people (including the employees) in the store at a time. Daddy filed for bankruptcy seven months after opening its first location...

PS: The 70 other stores is Russia are doing just fine.
PSS: 75% off everything on the website.
