Cool Spring Bag Alert

Hello cross-body bag from Paul&Joe! Not only is it beaded it also has leather tassels -which remind me of the red ones on my training bicycle- sooooo fun.
It's allegedly handmade which is a big plus and it won't take too much weight out of the wallet at $315.We.Like.

Fashion and Poetry on a Sleepy Sunday

I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.

Write, for instance: "The night is full of stars,
and the stars, blue, shiver in the distance."

The night wind whirls in the sky and sings.

I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.

On nights like this, I held her in my arms.
I kissed her so many times under the infinite sky.

She loved me, sometimes I loved her.
How could I not have loved her large, still eyes?

I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
To think I don't have her. To feel that I've lost her.

To hear the immense night, more immense without her.
And the poem falls to the soul as dew to grass.

What does it matter that my love couldn't keep her.
The night is full of stars and she is not with me.

That's all. Far away, someone sings. Far away.
My soul is lost without her.

As if to bring her near, my eyes search for her.
My heart searches for her and she is not with me.

The same night that whitens the same trees.
We, we who were, we are the same no longer.

I no longer love her, true, but how much I loved her.
My voice searched the wind to touch her ear.

Someone else's. She will be someone else's. As she once
belonged to my kisses.
Her voice, her light body. Her infinite eyes.

I no longer love her, true, but perhaps I love her.
Love is so short and oblivion so long.

Because on nights like this I held her in my arms,
my soul is lost without her.

Although this may be the last pain she causes me,
and this may be the last poem I write for her.

Saddest Poem. Pablo Neruda

Maxi Trend Inspiration

Do you already have a maxi skirt? You know they are mighty practical as well as pretty well when it is not raining and you had to wear flats –buzz kill- they also happen to hide your hairy legs between waxing appointments and given good proportions with the rest of your clothes elongate your figure.Win! So if you are afraid of coming out like an extra from Big Love at the compound think again; this trend is sexy and can be rough or edgy or romantic or whatever you feel like projecting to the world just check the examples I lovingly compiled for you munchkins.

Draping Suits

You know how draping can help enhance or conceal problem areas? Now apply that blessing to a bathing suit and parading scantily clad on a beach somewhere will become even more appealing. These two offerings via JCrew fit the sexy bill, the cut is flattering and the colors are many so chances are one or more will complement your coloring. And btw being $88 makes them quite a bargain. 

Ignore the blue one on the left hehehe a bit too plain for my taste!

Will you try to invest in Prada fashion lover?

So apparently for real this time (5 times over the last 10 years) Prada is going public people! It’s the company that cried wolf or not we’ll see in July. As of yet no price is set for the IPO but I can guess it won’t be cheap, so can we regular fashion lovers get a piece of the action? It would be very grown up to invest in a few slices of the brand so the MiuMiu heels and Prada bags can eventually pay for themselves with the return of investment…totally possible since 2010 saw an increase in revenue, still getting access to the deal won’t be easy and then we have yet to learn how many shares will be offered, how many allotted to each financial institution handling the thing, etc. Also cero expectations on getting a big profit and the possibility that if the thing plummets thou shall give unto them even more cash to cover whatever and more. So yeah investing is tricky business even more so with IPO’s it could be the next cash cow or a money sucking black hole. But here's the deal I admit to buying $100+ jeans –you might be guilty of this as well- so that means I –and you- can afford a Prada nibble (let us pray for an IPO of $40 or less which would mean 2 or 3 little fashionable slices)…what do you think? To Prada or not to Prada?
