Fashion No More.... End of an Era!!!

About 2 years ago I let my readers know about them looking for a new host to replace Tim Blanks on Fashion File. A staple show in the industry and Blanks being known for his poise and demeanor to create such a large following and getting into the most exclusive of shows.

Recently I learnt that Fashion File hasn't been picked up for next Season. I am DUMB-FOUND!!! How can something so Fantastic be canceled. Honestly, I didn't like the new host, think he had no clue what he was talking about and really showed NO PRESENCE!!! They should have just went with Peter Papapetrou!!!

So now I am SAD!!! Jeanie Beker is fantastic but doesn't fill the void of full extent of the Fashion needs of us crazies here in Canada. If we only got Style network too?!?!?!

The Green Machine

Money.... it's all I ever hear about. Probably doesn't help that I am the most fashionable person I know who is an addict of CNN. But when you hear about it daily, when it's the topic of discussion from breakfast til your midnight cap..... the fashion industry is listening too.

Green is not a colour you see walk down the runways often. It actually is the least flattering, the most unattractive and most unfavored colour by designers for eons. But with people talking Greenbacks it well is something you see daily. So since people are comfortable discussing and seeing this colour as often as they do, why not capitalise on this brings us to Paris runways. Paris is usually the brink of Newness in Fashion. It's the style starting we expect that trickles down into the mainstream markets daily but takes a few years to see.

Now I am not talking about your Emerald Green that has graced the pale skin of some of the most beautiful women in the world. Jewel tones have been a staple in the designers repertoire for the past century, I am talking about a pale, pastel kind of American dollar green. This colour has only graced the woman of the world a whole of 2 other times the last century and it was also during a money era. During the recession, green was the colour of choice. It was the working mans colour; woman could easily by greens at their local fabric stores and it was in High demand with the ever growing Industrial revolution and the leftovers of war. Followed by the short lived weird fashion times of the late 50's, when people were procreating Baby boomers, mothers had incomes from the wars, Fathers were going back into the workforce and finances were on the forefront of the consumer. So bring on the Green and let me know if you'll be sporting this colour, I am on the Fence.... I guess the Green plastic kind!!!

Wednesday Weekly Product!!!

I am a mommy as most of you all know, and my hair has taken the largest beating of it all!!! So when I got my pretty little hands on these products really I couldn't pass a week without letting you all know about them. I have lost a substantial amount of hair, I have always had thin hair just a ton of it, and I don't have time for rollers and blowouts.

In comes Sunsilk Daring Volume, I have every product from this collection minus the Shampoo and Conditioner.... but it's all the same. The root spray is the greatest thing right from the first spritz, with half damp hair I could feel my roots lift. Truly a magical product.

So with my Vavavoom hair I put in the Leavin Conditioner from the same family and it left a soft silky feeling in my hair without any weight. After enjoying my new products I felt like blow drying my hair and being pretty. And if any product can make you look good and feel good on the inside too it gets my vote!!!

DSquared's costumes Gracing Britney....

Sneak peeks were released of Britney Spears Circus concert yesterday, but most of all the planned leak showed of the Fashion house get, that hasn't been seen since the likes of Jean Paul Gaulthier when he did Madonna's cone bra tour in the early 90's.

The Fashion house putting the threads together are none other than Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared, based out of Milan, but born in Canada. Now this isn't their first time dressing a songstress diva, as they put together the Cowboy attired worn in the 'Don't tell me' video.

I will have the pleasure of seeing her concert on the 18th of March, and am looking forward to the supposedly 21 costume changes. As well, Britney's team and the big PR mavens of Candie's want you to know she is their newest spokesperson. Following in the footsteps of the very very young Hayden Panettiere. Who do you think makes the better spokes person.... you tell me!!!
