For Fall 2013, Alexander Wang continues to play with his seasonal T by Alexander Wang videos as a platform for experimentation. This video is set in an unexpected scenario, directed by Darren Stein. Alexander Wang invited New Yorkers to a 'one-time-only undisclosed event' digitally where the initial 'open call' revealed only a location and a time. Hints and updates were leaked on the days leading up to the event via Twitter and Facebook. Once the doors to the lobby area opened, Wang revealed in a projected video message that attendees will have access to pieces from the T by Alexander Wang collection -- for free; no shopping bags or shopping carts. See the video for the full story.

I love, love, love these pieces of shoe art from the Prada Spring Summer 2012 footwear collection! The Hot Rod Flaming Shoes were inspired by vintage American racing cars popular in the 1950s. The cute tail light gives an added oomph to the already ultra sexy stiletto. And because they are both in fiery red, I'd be willing to wear them in a heartbeat! #wishlist
Some say you’re born with it-- if your mother has it, then there’s a good chance you’ll get it too.On the other hand, some are able to maintain their flawless bellies even after a full term pregnancy, and attribute it to their lucky genes. Well regardless of which type one belongs to, the reality we normally believe is that these can be hard to eliminate, especially if it had already passed the early stage where it could have been remedied or prevented. It can stay with us for life.
It is a relief that there are more ways available now to get rid of stretch marks. Aside from the age old remedy passed on to us for generations-- to regularly and generously moisturize the affected area with Cocoa butter, Shea butter, vitamin E or any rich oil-based creams and lotions, the more stubborn stretch marks can benefit with the help of advanced formula creams that also lighten and fade discolorations. With our state-of-the art modern technology, finding the best stretch mark cream or laser treatment in the market today is an easy feat.
I believe the best way to deal with stretch marks or any physical imperfection in general, is not to despise yourself for having it, but to accept that it's a part of your body that does not diminish your self-worth. Arm yourself with knowledge and endeavor to find the best treatment suited for you, because no one but you alone, have the power of choice to decide what you believe is perfect for your body and well-being.
When I made a post about Kobi Levi's amazing shoes, I started receiving a multitude of inquiries on how one could get hold of his/her very own fabulous pair. I searched and searched, but all I could share was the designer's email address so questions could be directed to him.
Well I guess, your prayers have been finally answered! Kobi Levi posted these photos of the Bird Series Limited Edition Footwear Art on his site that came with this inscription at the bottom part:
I guess this is his way of saying that these babies can be had, at long last! So enjoy and shoot your orders now!

I finally had the nerve to sign up for a Lookbook account some time ago, with no intention of posting my own photos (but those of my Little Lady), only to read afterwards in the fine print that photos of kids are not allowed. Well, technically she is not a kid anymore but a 'tween' (almost teen, but not just yet), but that doesn't help either.
If now had been 10 years ago, I wouldn't bother-- or rather, I'd be shameless to post my own style and look. But the thought of a full body shot of myself now, makes me cringe. I have long accepted that there are certain things that I could no longer pull off at this age and shape, that's why until I get back to my ideal body (that could realistically take years), in the meantime, I am coursing all my styling energy to my little Barbie.
We did this photo shoot one gloomy weekend instead of going to the mall. Surprisingly, the activity turned out to be more fun than we expected, so I told her we're going to do it everytime she gets a new set of clothes.
For this look, I let her wear a leopard print stretch tube top (originally a skirt), black cotton vest, hot pink skinny jeans and pink glittery sandals. Accessories include big pink sunglasses, necklace with red boot pendant and pink flower ring and earrings.

Kobi Levi graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem in 2001. A freelance designer, he specializes in footwear design and development. He collaborates with both Israeli and international companies, and is currently working on his women shoe line in Tel-Aviv, Israel. He designed commercial footwear in Italy, China and Brazil.
"In my artistic footwear design the shoe is my canvas. The trigger to create a new piece comes when an idea, a concept and/or an image comes to mind. The combination of the image and footwear creates a new hybrid and the design/concept comes to life. The piece is a wearable sculpture. It is "alive" without the foot/body. Most of the inspirations are out of the "shoe-world", and give the footwear an extreme transformation. The result is usually humoristic with a unique point of view about footwear. Another aspect of the creation is the realization. All the pieces are hand-made in my studio. The challenging technical development is the key to bring the design to life in the best way." - Kobi Levi
Here are some of his designs that made news in the fashion industry:
|Bird 1 Toucan 2011|
|Bird 2 Mallard duck 2011|
