Blogger Q&A: Ulrika

UlrikaHelsinki, FinlandThe Red Rosette Who is your favorite fashion designer and why? I like the usual, Chanel, Chloé, Stella McCartney. And some Scandinavian brands, Whyred, Acne, Minimarket. But I don´t really believe in paying that much money for designer stuff, so I have to say the designers behind Topshop.What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?My leather biker jacket.If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what…

No Shopping?

Soooooo…the hubby told me last week that we need to start budgeting. You know what that means, right? No more shopping.Yeah right! That just means super duper bargain shopping and thrifting!! Or I can wear the clothes I have in my closet. Either way, I am always up for a challenge! I will not let my shopping spirit be crushed! I will not be defeated! I promise.P.S. I will be back on Twitter and FB…

Tanktastic!

I’m not going to let the looming L.A. rain discourage me from dreaming of warmer days ahead.Yes, I love the rain, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a clear warm day every-now-and-then!Those are the days I love to throw on a tank top with a pair of jeans or a skirt.Today’s tanks come from Delias. I know they are geared toward non-curvy teens…BUT…these come up to a 2X!Loving this one (left)…it’s called firecracker!

Beauty Buzz: Benefit

Oh!! How I wish I was bold enough to wear eyeshadow colors like these from Benefit.Man, it’s not fair! Why didn’t I get that daring make-up gene? Sometimes, I will by an eyeshadow in an amazing color…and it just sits there. Just waiting for me to try it. Poor little lonely eye-popping shadow…sigh.velvet eyeshadow – like what you sea?velvet eyeshadow – gimme some plumlust duster loose powder – punk royaltylust duster loose powder – moon…

The Red Carpet Issue

It’s definitely a Monday. So blah when I woke up…so uninspired…until I turned on my television.If you have “On Demand” go over to the Sundance Channel and watch the documentary “The Red Carpet Issue.” It’s a behind-the-scenes look at how the red carpet, fashion, designers, and celebrities come together to form this mega-money making business. It’s pretty interesting. It’ s broken down here in 4-part previews. Enjoy!

Pretty in Paisley

Sometimes, I like to dress a little girlie. When this feminine mood strikes, I throw on a skirt and a frilly top. Believe me when I say it doesn’t happen very often. But, it does happen. Today, was one of those days. I am in love with this paisley skirt! I found it at Macy’s for only $7.99! I told you I’m a bargainista! This is my first time wearing it. It makes me feel…

Bargainista Finds II

Yes…this chick went on a little shopping excursion yesterday. I finally made it out to the “Bargainista” shopping center. You know…the one with Marshalls, Ross, Old Navy, and Nordstrom Rack. I didn’t make it to Nordstrom Rack…booooo!This (left) is what I wore, but I think I look yuck…so I played with the pic a little bit. Anywhoodles…I had been in the market for a simple black cross body handbag, but I didn’t want to pay…

Straw Fedora Comeback?

Are you a hat lover? I admire those who can pull off a hat. Especially, a fedora…how about a straw fedora? Also known as the Panama Hat, this could be spring’s hottest hat…or will it just hit the ground face first? I love them! I think they are very chic, but some think otherwise. I would take any one of the hats below. I want to know what you think. Yes or No?More Urban Outfitters…
