Posted in Art & Music, Uncategorized with tags , on June 20, 2011 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

I recently have come across Dina Goldstein’s photography artworks “Disney Fallen Princess” and it makes me both laughing out loud & sad at the same time and wonder what if all these Disney Princess had left their “Fantasy Land” where everything is all happy & filled with flowers & pink glitters and thrown them into our world, what their lives would be like? Dina Goldstein; a skilled photographer who has explored what might have happened to fairy tale characters once the well known part of the story ended.

Valentine’s Day Love Canopy Tent
Imagine you & your lover sitting next to the fireplace, cuddling, kissing, drinking champagne & feeding each other chocolate dipped strawberries in a romantic canopy tent you built yourself in your living room …. How romantic is that?! so we’ve found a easy step by step tutorial by the Lose Angeles based designer Justina Blakeney to show us how.
Step 1: You will need 4 screw hooks or S hooks if your ceiling has something you can hang the canopy. 1 spool of twine, and a long stick. Secure the stick & hang from the ceiling, then Find some beautiful sheets, sarongs or large piece of fabric, in any theme you like to go after, maybe you like the “English Victorian Garden” feel, or Asian Imperial City flair or like in the photo here we are going for the “Bohemian Moroccan” kind look. Drape over the fabrics of your choice and use some safety pins to lift up the front opening as shown in the photo below.

Step 2: Making heart shaped garland by Using the news paper to cut out various sizes of heart shapes or you can buy those heart shaped cake decoration paper, and string through with twine.

FENDI Patent Leather & Gold Color Embossed Leather Lining Peekaboo Satchel

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on March 13, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

What’s the first thing that comes into your mind when you think about the famous Italian fashion house “FENDI” ? those big “FF” logos all over the place right? If you love their logos then you can’t get enough of it ( Just like I am such a CHANEL “CC” logo freak! haha) but if you hated their “FF” logo then you probably would totally disregard any of the FENDI handbags.

BUT!!! Since in Spring/Summer 2009 collection continues to Fall/Winter 2009 and 2010, Fendi has came up with all different type of the new “IT BAG” name “Peekaboo Bag”. It’s sophisticated & understated! all the bells & whistles are inside of the bag! so when you close the bag all you see just a understated handbag but when you leave it open, the top droops down and reveals all different types of beautiful lining inside of the bag. From beaded “FF logo” to Fur & snakeskin lining!

Here is one of the many beautiful “Peekaboo” bag, this one is the Black Patent Leather Peekaboo with embossed Gold color checkerboard lining. (Available at Luxe-Gifts.com)

This crinkled patent Peek-A-Boo bag is so understated and ladylike that I almost can’t believe it’s Fendi. I mean, where are all the bells and whistles? There’s not even any snakeskin on this bag! The truth is that this bag doesn’t need anything extra to make it work. It has an old fashioned, sophisticated charm that defies trends.

The simple shape of the bag combined with the sleek patent material and the pronounced seams creates a sharply tailored look that will work for a lot of women. For edgier fashionistas, the Peek-A-Boo would make a great bag for the office, but I think a lot of women will find that this is a highly versatile, high quality accessory that can coordinate with a lot of looks.

The details on this bag are so luxurious and plentiful that it’s hard to know where to begin. The inside of the Peek-A-Boo is made of a fabulous laser cut suede with gold paint that will make you want to reach into your purse at every possible opportunity. The gold metal hardware is understated and beautiful. And the interior compartment of the bag is ingeniously divided into two sections, which each have pockets of their own.

Untill next time, be well and look fabulous !
