Miraclesuit Regatta Swimsuit
One of the best one piece bathing suit I have seen so far! Simple classic styling paired with all over control makes this a seasonal favorite. Cleverly hidden underwire bra for support and shirring across the middle to camouflage your tummy. A heavier Lycra content smoothes bulges and lines.
Nanette Lepore Sailor Dress
Slim white stripes add nautical style to a stretch cotton dress, styled with short sleeves, a scooped neckline with tie detail and a solid, ruffled hem.
Cole Haan Ribbon Hat
Wide brim hat in soft straw with classic grosgrain ribbon detail. 100% paper straw.
Bra SaverAre you sick of people staring at your chest-area because they thought that they saw your nipple peeping through your bra? I am! I really hate it. It really is one of my pet-peeves. The reason that your nipple looks like it's trying to break free is because of the washing machine. After a few washes, even your priced padded bra will give you the 'nipple' look.
I am so annoyed by this that I have resorted to hand-washing all of my bras...but I have found us a miracle, ladies! This spiffy little thing is duly named the Bra Saver! The cylinder washer bag prevents crushing of padded and underwire bras. No more hand washes...no more lewd looks...YAY!
Get the Bra Saver at Bare Necessities $8.00.

Barbie - New Face of MACSince I was young, playing dress up for my 1986 Barbie, a part of me wants to be her. She is after all a woman who is admired the world over for her many talents and occupations (nurse, doctor, ballerina) as well as for her envious 36-24-36 figure.
M.A.C. introduced its new limited-edition Barbie-inspired cosmetic line to the world last week! Now you too can look like an adult Barbie.
The hot collection looks fun, very pink, but very fun. Face...eyes...lips...nails. The sugary pink makeup will look great with this spring’s predicted hot color - yellow.
The limited-edition collection wouldn’t be complete without a collector's edition Barbie wearing black knee-high boots, jeans, a shirt with a jacket and with her very own MAC cosmetic case. She's $35.00, available at MAC stores.
There is a little promotional video which is a fun walk through memory lane with Barbie. Go to MAC to have a look at the video and to check out the prices. Once the page loads, click 'VIDEO' .

Louis Vuitton Spring / Summer 2007

Go get yourself a pair of this “Santa Barbara” Louis Vuitton shoe via eLUXURY at $575.00.
These bad boys will definitely grab attention. The engraved heel is a nicer touch than the often used monogram.

Hot for Vests
I have been going crazy over vests lately. I always liked the way it makes you look so professional with a shirt or so laid back and relaxed with a tank top.
I am still looking for a black cropped vest to go with my shirts.
However, I chanced upon this cute little piece while shopping and bought it immediately! It is priced at $69.00 and available at Guess.
