Fergie debuted her new shoe collection this week at the World Association Show in Vegas. She signed on with Brown Shoe back in May to form this partnership.
“I have always loved fashion because it’s a great way to express your mood. And I’m definitely a shoe lover,” said Fergie. “The right pair of shoes can change the feel of an outfit, and even change how a woman feels about herself. A woman can wear confidence on her feet with a high stiletto, or slip into weekend comfort with a soft ballet flat.”
Her line is a collection of colorful and uber trendy shoes that include gladiators, platforms, sandals and kicks. Fergie's new line of shoes will be available in stores in the Spring of 2009.

Last night I posted a trailer for Season 4 of The Hills. In the trailer it appears Stephanie Pratt is out on a date with Lauren Conrad's ex Doug Reinhardt. Check out what Stephanie had to say about the footage while on E!'s Hollywood Party Girl radio show.
To any Brooke Hogan fans out there, let me just start with an apology but I never have seen what all the fuss was about with Brooke. I wouldn’t presume to know enough about her career to say if I thought she’d make it as a singer but with regards to her looks, I didn’t think she really stood out. Well yesterday while browsing TMZ I saw this picture of her and I thought she looked really pretty.
I guess I was alone as TMZ’s caption had the following to say about Brooke’s look in this photo. “We often criticize stars for not wearing makeup, but in this case, we take it back! Clearly these celebs need to leave the painting to the painters.” Ouch!! Perhaps it’s just me but do you really think she looks that bad in this photo?
If you follow the blog, you may remember a recent post about my desperate search for my favorite yet discontinued Dior Addict Lip Gloss #483. Well, I have since found a wonderful replacement thanks to a frequent shopper in my boutique, Kari. Kari and I got to talking one day and I learned she sold Mary Kay. I asked if she may be able to help me find a color similar to my beloved Dior. Luckily she’s an avid reader of the blog so she was already aware of my plight!
I learned quickly that when Kari sets out to help someone, she means business. Two days later she came into my shop equipped with enough bags of make up for an entire fleet of models that would rival any top make up artist at Fashion Week in New York! She pulled out color samples and line sheets of just about any color you could imagine known to mankind and then some. I spotted “Sugarberry” which is part of their Signature NouriShine Lip Gloss that looked to be a close match.

Just catching up on some email tonight and I received this trailer from MTV for The Hills Season 4. Take a peek...it looks like it's going to be a good season! I can't wait!
Who's got better hair? You decide!
If you find yourself with some extra time on your hands, check out Marie Claire's Celebrity Hair Wars and vote for your favorite hairstyles. I find myself with some major hair envy after playing a few rounds! When you're cursed with fine hair, it's easy to do.
Logically we all know the hair we envy is rarely natural and clearly impossible for us everyday people. It's packed with hours of top stylists fussing over thousands of dollars worth of hair extensions, color processing and largely the work of fabulous photo shoots. Oh well, a girl can dream.
All this hair talk makes me think of Bravo's Shear Genius. Anyone watch this? I absolutely adore Daniel!
Locally, I adore Ms. Tracy my fabulous stylist who is able to work wonders on my lifeless locks. Tracey was gracious enough to star in my latest commercial for Distinction and let me film it at her salon "Illusions" on East 1st Street. If you're in the Duluth area and are looking for a great salon, call Tracy at Illusions Hair Design at (218)728-9018.

Ah today was such a great day! I got to select our 08 fall line from Melie Bianco, my favorite handbag designer. This is a great collection of fall bags and I absolutely loved seeing the punches of color along side the traditional fall colors we all expect. I was having so much fun ordering that I decided to let you all in on the fun! I set up a special section on our website to allow you to order from the fall line as well so you can be the first to get the new line from Melie as soon as it is available. But this pre-order is only available until Friday, July 25th so don't delay!
Please note that this is a special order and the line is not available to ship until August and September so you will be making a pre-order that will ship in those months. If you are a Melie Bianco fan, this will allow you to see the entire line and pick your favorite fall bag now. Or if you are like me that will become plural in no time!
So each day this week I will feature a few of my favorites from her fall line but you can visit our site to pre-order at anytime until 12:00pm CST on Friday, July 25th. Don’t miss out on this chance to pre-order your bag!

Patricia said: “It’s just amazing to be working with such an iconic brand as M&S. I really wanted to get involved with a brand who really understood women of all ages and who would work closely with me to develop the range in a way that was right for them. I have conceptualized the line as ‘Destination Style New York’ and it consists of iconic womenswear including matching accessories. I like to see it as expression of my philosophy of ‘the democratisation of luxury’”.
Be sure to keep an eye on M&S this fall to see the collaboration come to life!
