I didn’t get a chance to look through what everyone was wearing at the MET Gala, but here are my list of “notables” so far: Anne Hathaway ROCKS!!! (She does look like a young Bridget Nielsen *Stallone’s ex*, doesn’t she?) She looks stunning in her Valentino gown, but really her gown is competing in the...

Bvlgari’s Octo Collection

My friend once told me, “when it comes to women, it’s never really just about the bags and the shoes. You also have the bling and the watches too.” There is truth to that actually. While a majority of women would prefer to carry a nice designer bag over a pair of good designer shoes,...
