Sublimely .....Ridiculous!!! Lena Dunham

So picture this :the 2014 Emmys....and everyone is dressed to the nines....hoping to get a 10 out of 10....
.... And then there is : Lena Dunham....
What she hopes to get out of this fiasco is beyond me and by the looks of things...even her.

Take a look for yourselves:

Baring in mind that the ombre,tulle skirt is by Gianbattista Valli.....and the slouch, pure Lena Dunham....
This is one hot mess and Joan Rivers must be having a field day on "Fashion Police".
Stylists have been fired for less!
Urgh...Frumpy, Dumpy and Lumpy!!
And these are not 3 of Snow Whites' seven dwarves!!!

The poor girl is grinning and the powers that be are grinding her to shreds...she apparently made all the " worst dressed lists".... Erm.....Obviously!!!
She has been likened to a human " piñata " ....which just about covers it. 
Enough said...

One last point....Lena Lena Lena ....blondes may have more fun,but the laughs are on you ....get thee to a hairdresser!!!! Pronto!!!

Christian Louboutin Nails it.....

"It's not about the money,money,money...."sang Jessie J. on her song "Price Tag"..

Well at $50 a bottle ...one has to ask oneself....

So here's the news: Christian Louboutin has launched his signature nail polish:
"ROUGE LOUBOUTIN"...natch... with a full range of colours launching on the 31st of Aug.
There will be 30 hues in 3 different categories:
Pops/Nudes and Noirs.

The cap measures 8inchs,the same length of the heel on the 
Louboutin Ballerina Ultima shoes he collaborated on with David Lynch....check out the launch video:

 It is one of the more expensive nail lacquers on the market at present..but still cheaper than a pair of Loubous. 
Only difference is: once the polish is on your nails,will anyone really tell it apart from an Essie or OPI...? Whereas wearing a pair...it's like waving a red flag at a bull...literally!

Sexy nail polish ...priceless
At present available online and at Saks and Sephora USA.

Just don't poke your eyes out...and don't put in in your hand luggage when travelling!....

Blurred Lines....

You know you want it.....
Just got to have it.....

But where do the lines blurr when it comes to must haves?

I have Longchamp's (very practical when travelling)"Le Pliage"bag...it was a Xmas gift from "The Coach"(my BF). Doesn't matter that I went online at: longchamp.com... to customise it myself before he purchased it....What does matter is that you can!

Now this is where the line starts to blurr.....in fact my vision is getting kinda fuzzy:
Chanel's "Premiere Triple row" watch/belt......
Anyone seriously considering this...take a rain check and a Xanax...for those that can wrap this around their wrist...x3 and pay £3,350 for that privilege....be my guest.

I love me some Havaianas flip flops,in fact I have 3 pairs now and have always supplemented my summer wardrobe with these colourful,comfy must haves.
Did I know that there was a collaboration between Valentino and Havaianas?
Do I like them?
Would I pay: £175 for a pair?

Tempting my friends,really tempting....

The Dad Hatter and James Garner....

When we were kids we would love to watch: " The Rockford Files"on television with my parents ...Now this may be ancient for some, never heard of for others...but for the TV fanatics of my generation ;you will remember this much loved detective series starring the wonderful; James Garner .

Dad loved his wit,his charm that rivalled well,maybe his own ....and enjoyed James Garner as an actor tremendously, so it was a relief to know that:
a) he remembered who he was and
b)....he had a comment about him.....

Go on, read all about it on:
 "The Chronicles of The Dad Hatter...." a click away to your left...

It's Monday...we all need a caffeine and Dad Hatter kickstart to the day!

Mirror, Mirror.......

Remember the nineties...or was it even the eighties?... when we rocked mirror sunglasses:Raybans,Cutler & Gross....whatever we got our hands on.

We never took them off, pretended we were extras on Miami Vice and walked into a lot of furniture....
But we were COOL and looked kinda stupid at sundown....

Guess what?
They are ba-ackkkk!!!

And I managed to get my hands on one of the featured pair in this UK Elle line up: The green acetate Le Specs....light as a feather,no one here has them and they have probably burned holes in my retinas...did I mention they are only £35 ?
What we still wouldn't do .....

It has always been my mission in life to be able to wear a 4 year old's "Hello Kitty" pajamas....

Reality show maverick Bethenny Frankel has appeared on Instagram doing just that...

...apparently to make her daughter laugh.
 Hey!Freedom of expression .... yada yada yada...but:
 Beware the fall out. 

I used to admire Bethenny back in her RHONY days,she had chutzpah and deadpan humour in equal measures. Now she has a big head on her Skinny girl body and apparently little love for her fans....
I read somewhere that while out at a bar with her beau du jour, a girl came up to talk to Bethenny while she was dancing and her reply was simply:

Well "Urgh" is how I feel looking at her in that photo.

You reap what you sow.
