Slave Earrings: Really, Vogue Italia?

So apparently Vogue Italia thinks 400 years of oppression is the next fall trend.

Vogue Italia recently published a post called Slave Earrings on the Shop The Trend section of their website, saying...

"Jewellery has always flirted with circular shapes, especially for use in making earrings. The most classic models are the slave and creole styles in gold hoops.

If the name brings to the mind the decorative traditions of the women of colour who were brought to the southern Unites States during the slave trade, the latest interpretation is pure freedom. Colored stones, symbolic pendants and multiple spheres. And the evolution goes on."

Needless to say I am deeply disgusted, but not surprised. I've never been a huge fan of any edition of Vogue(except for the occasional British Vogue), they always seem a bit dry and out of touch to me. You can read the actual post and comments here.

My Birthday Wish List

I can't believe that in a mere 10 days, I'll be 22! It seems like just yesterday I was buying my first legal drink, and now I'm delving deeper into my 20's. Most people stop caring about their birthdays as they get older, but believe me I'm not one of those people; who in their right mind would turn down cake and free stuff?? Not I! Anywho, here's some things I'm hoping to see on August 29th.

Buy or Bye? The Showstopper Bra by Victoria's Secret

Lima at her Macy's appearance

Good morning loves! I'm currently sitting in class trying not to fall asleep (staying up until 4 am when you have a 9 am class = terrible idea) so what better way to pass time than to spend it with my baby (this website)? Moving on...

Cult lingerie brand Victoria's Secret is launching yet another bra to satisfy their loyal customers. This time, it's called the Showstopper, a lightly demi lined bra that the brand claims won't show through clothing. Yesterday Adriana Lima made a store appearance at Macy's Herald Square to promote the new bra, saying, “It shows nothing but your shape and provides no-show coverage right where you need it..."

The bra ranges in price from $45-55 and can be purchased here.

Any thoughts on the new bra? I'm a huge fan of their panties, but their bras never seem to wow me. But then again, I usually only buy bras during the Semi Annual Sale.

Buy or Bye? The Kardashian Kollection at Sears

Kourtney, Kim and Khloe

So it has recently come to my attention that the Kardashian sisters (Kim, Khloe and Kourtney) are launching a product line at Sears. Sears is the last place I think of when it comes to fashion (didn't they used to have a line by LL Cool J? Ummm yeah about that....), but I'm sure getting the uber famous Kardashian sisters, who also did a line with overpriced Bebe years ago, is sure to create a buzz. The line hasn't officially been released yet, but Sears is holding a 72 hour presale which can be found here.

So what do you think socialites; Is the Kardashian Kollection worth shopping? Personally I don't think I should be buying one of these dresses for 70 bucks when the Dow Jones just dropped 600 points yesterday.
