Be Inthavong's Handbag Collection

Strawbabies, I am really feeling fashion accessories designer Be Inthavong!!! He came on the fashion scene in 2004.  He was also a partner in the handbag brand BE&D with Steve Dumain.  Then in 2009, he left that brand to create his own signature brand Be Inthavong.  In his line, he incorporates his western upbringing and Laotian heritage.  It takes a entire month worth of work to create each piece.  His bags are carried exclusively by Saks Fifth Avenue and the prices range from $599 upward.

Yes, you read it correctly. I am giving away Toya Wright's book "Priceless Inspirations". Lately, she has been in the spotlight with her marriage and her husband's X. negatively.  I think she has taken the high road and she deserves some type of credit for this. I also read that she is suing for not getting enough exposure for this book.  I must say that I read this book months ago and I have to agree this was a priceless inspiration for me. I am a big reader, so of course I saw the book but if you are not you probably didn't see it until recently. I am very proud of her accomplishments with this book and I must say that she is truly a priceless inspiration for all women to take the high road. Sometimes and only during emergencies is it necessary to be in the low lane and at those times it is a crisis, IE your family, your children and or your business/ brand. At these times I must say you do what it is deemed necessary to do to stand your position and ground. Well.....enough of that.

Monique lhuillier Dresses Resort 2012

I am living this fantasy of special occasions and weddings today. I mean a good formal event with the black tie. I am seeing hors d'oeuvres and trinkets. I see ice sculptures cascaded across a table with tons and tons of fruit and cheeses. I see wine and champagne. I am in this ballroom with 100s of guests and then.............I wake up. So, to  finish my dream I wanted to step it up today and be elegant. I am dreaming of Monique Lhuillier, her dresses are so exquisite and designed to perfection. I mean you could even wear this as a wedding dress if that's your fancy. I mean I'm all about being an individual and this would be the perfect wear for an elegant affair.

DeLaneau Timepieces

I am head over heels in love with DeLaneau timepieces which include such collections as The Atelier, Arts & Complications, Jewelry Timepieces and The Essentials. The first look and I was swooning in watch heaven, I mean, really. Is this possible for a watch to look like this? Uh, yeah and Delaneau has not disappointed. Strawbabies, this is unheard of.  These timepieces are one of a kind and can not be mistaken for any other timepiece around the world. This timepiece is in a league of its own.

Terri Silacci Snakeskin Manicure

Terry Silacci, nail artist of Deliciously Polished nail salon is infamous for creating the Python pedicure, where she uses real snakeskin to create her nail art. She has a phenomenal imagination for her very unique designs, customs and finishes. I'm not particularly in favor of all those creepy crawlers especially not snakes. But we are talking nails, I mean I would love to be all wrapped of with a snake, that is on my nails of course.

Prada Eyewear

I know the summer is almost over, but the sun is still out and it's blazing. I'm looking at the thermometer and it's reading the 100s.  Anywho, you get my picture. It's hot out here. I ran across or maybe walked across these fashion statement sunglasses of course. I mean, you put these on. Just the glasses and nothing else and you are ready. Kidding, with some clothes and I'm pretty sure these are head turners and please don't  be careless and toss these babies around or plan out forget them at the table or something of the sort. I mean because I'm pretty sure, well almost positive you will never see these glasses again. They are a very hott commodity.
