Nada de ombré: o cabelo da vez é o "tartaruga"!

Crocodile Pants, Per Favore!


In NYC I saw an Italian editor wearing exaggerated wide-leg black leather pants. They were up-to-the-knee in salt stains. She looked tragically fabulous; it was dolce vita vs. winter and as far as I was concerned, the score was tied. It’s no coincidence, then, that Bally would proffer these wide-leg crocodile pants for Fall 15. Just picture this outfit in one corner, a snow plow in the other and ring the bell. It’s on!







I have mentioned this in the past...if I refer to you in this blog by your initials, as royalty, as san or chan after your name than you are special to me.....having said that...here is something that only the aforementioned people would have heard or understood...and by the way I am thinking of getting a copyright....here is what I mean..." Wherever you are....whomever you are with.....whatever you are doing, my best wishes are with you"..

On all kinds of levels from the trivial to the significant ,CHINA is positioning itself to outstrip everyone regionally and globally!!!!!













Coco Chanel

It was actually famous fashion designer Coco Chanel who first uttered this sentiment: “Nature gives you the face you have at 20. Life shapes the face you have at 30. But at 50 you get the face you deserve.” The idea here is that you’ve lived your life in a way that’s affected your appearance. You made your choices, both good and bad, so you deserve the consequences, right? Well, perhaps.

Seven things Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t like


Should you ever have the pleasure of his company

Heads up, no selfies.  
Opinions, unless asked… 
“There are not too many people with an opinion I care for.”
Particularly, men’s opinions on fashion... 
“I’m not crazy to discuss fashion with men. I couldn’t care less about their opinion.”
Stress…
“I don’t believe in it. It’s a job, one should not become hysterical.”
The past…
“This is one of the sicknesses of our period, to look back. No, forget about it. Fashion is now and tomorrow. Who cares about the past?”
On that note, retrospectives and archives…
“In Germany, they made a huge exhibition of everything I did, Fendi, Chanel, Lagerfeld, Chloé and all that. I’m not even going to the show. I don’t care… I don’t even have archives, myself. I keep nothing…Lots of my colleagues, they have archives, they look at their dresses like they were Rembrandts!”
The word ‘artist’…
“I’m a designer, I do photos, I do books, I’m a publisher, but I don’t have the self-proclaimed label “artist.” I hate that. Very pretentious. If other people say it, it’s very flattering, but if you start to say it yourself, you better forget about it.”

Selfies…
“I don’t do selfies. But other people do, and they all want to do selfies with me. No, no, no. Thank God, Sébastien, my assistant, he’s mean to the people in the street, mean and rude. I’m a nice person.”

And I loved how Benjamin Netanyahu Israel's Prime Minister. quoted the poet Robert Frost at his speech to the US Congress.........

You don’t have to read Robert Frost to know. You have to live life to know that the difficult path is usually the one less traveled, but it will make all the difference" for the future of my country, the security of the Middle East and the peace of the world, the peace, we all desire.

And I, I too took the road less traveled and it has made all the difference.........







“Now and again an echo of Chopin’s music rings in my ears, and this much you absorb me that, at such moments I always think of you and lose myself in meditating about possibilities.”

nocturne in b-flat minor, op. 9, no. 1







男は度胸、女は愛嬌。
Men should have courage, women should have charm. (Japanese proverb)






Arigatō

There is a popular misconception that the Japanese word arigatō derives from the Portuguese obrigado, both of which mean “Thank you.” This is false, as arigatō is a shortened form of arigatō gozaimasu, which in turn is a form of an adjective arigatai, for which written records exist dating back well before Japanese contact with Portugal.















When you give someone a fragrance, you're giving them something of yourself. It's a gift of your essence




in latin instead of saying “i love you” you don’t say anything because it’s a dead language. nothing.  i think that’s beautiful









BUENO, BONITO Y BARATO es un concepto que en Miami Beach, Mexico y muchos paises latinos se escucha mucho.....es posible? o prefieres algo que cueste mas y aguante el tiempo....that stands the test of time...get it........el concepto no es solo para comprar pero para todo lo que aplica en la vida.....los italianos dirían non esiste!......a mi opinion -lo bueno. lo bello , cuesta mucho....debe de costar si no- no vale la pena.

And sorry if I try to translate it in English it would lose its meaning







I’m in love with words.
I’m in love with the way I can take these emotions - these intangible things - and put them down on paper. And after the initial feelings fade, I can go back years and years later and feel the same emotions again just by reading the words I once wrote.
But the one thing I love more than words are the moments that cannot be put down on paper. Moments so special that there are no words to describe them.



Still one of my favorite ones....tiene su estilo particular que va y va......



nunca permitas,
Que el amor se convierta en una rutina 
El verdadero amor esta tan cerca.
Pero tu eres tan terca.
Si sabes bien que cuando a mi te acercas,
A la realidad despiertas.

My favorite part too and when he says " Pina Records alright alright"

Prada

The Jewish Princess is  liking the espadrille-sandal hybrid that Miuccia Prada has designed for both of her lines. She loves the look of the Miu Miu gladiators but, told me they were too much work—these Prada double-strap espadrilles she sahid: " are chic and easy."









the camaraderie of ‘the pack’ during the fashion weeks. They’re like a group of sisters enjoying fashion but all possess the same national pride when being photographed or interviewed by international media. The ones that get the most attention are fashion editor and blogger Miroslava Duma and socialite-designer Ulyana Sergeenko. Duma, despite being super petite, has always managed to stand out of the crowd through her implausible ability to translate runway fashion into daily life. Sergeenko has pleasantly surprised everyone by recently showing her first couture collection, to pleasant reviews. To fashion observers, Sergeenko’s style adopts traditional Russian elements such as fur, red, military, puffy shoulders and big skirts, and modernizes them into wearable and chic outfits – never cliché.

a little take on Japan-日本,




One of the more enjoyable aspects of learning a foreign language like Japanese is what I call the "joy of enlightenment," when you're able to work out a puzzling linguistic problem, correctly write a difficult kanji or comprehend something for the first time. I've experienced this many times  as a learner of Japanese, the first time I heard dare da! dare da! dare da! in the classic Science Ninja Team Gatchaman opening song and understood what they were saying, "Who is it? Who is it? Who is it?" I knew I had arrived in proficiency!!!

Thread lift

This  surgery technique has come a long way since the days of facelifts that left  subjects looking as if they had been caught in a wind tunnel. This procedure,  available to cosmetic surgeons leave patients looking younger and refreshed, but not unnaturally lifted and tightened.

Voluma has hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the body that helps to hydrate skin and add volume.
“the ideal implant for remodeling facial volume and correcting a receding chin'' and says it also can rejuvenate a sagging facelift. It's said to be better suited for larger scale facial volumizing, not just erasing wrinkles.



The modern world is so anti-beauty that anyone who searches for beauty and emulates  is regarded as some kind of anomaly....but I do not care,  that is why I post beauty and plastic surgery options




facelift, technically known as a rhytidectomy (literally, surgical removal of wrinkles), is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure used to give a more youthful appearance. It usually involves the removal of excess facial skin, with or without the tightening of underlying tissues, and the redraping of the skin on the patient's face and neck.

   HH Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned 





Sheikha Mozah was looking spectacular in custom-made grey couture gown from J.Mendel. The sample piece was presented in Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection, however Sheikha Mozah’s version was “upgraded” from the runway piece. She added the dramatic ruffled train and the fitting was fantastic. She accessorized with the iconic Cartier diamond snake necklace and grey clutch. This look was chic and glamorous, cant get enough of this. 







Sheikha Mozah was looking so fabulous in this custom-made white coat from Giambattista Valli.
