90s Flashback: Ladeez Knot Yo Shirts!

Oh, knotted shirts! Where do I begin? You bring me back to Christina Ricci duck tapping her boobs in Now and Then and Kurt Cobain being a hot mess before hot mess was even a term. You're basically all sorts of edgy do-it-yourself fun and I don't even have to wait for retailers to stock up on you because you can be easily created with any button down and two hands. Actually you can even use any loose t-shirt for this look (take a looksie below). How rad can you get? I should have seen this one coming with all the cropped turtlenecks and plaid flocking the streets these days.

What I really like about this look is the updated high waisted take on it celebs like Annalynne McCord and Kiera Knightley are trying. It's some sort of mutt mix of 70s and 90s. Radness my friends. Radness.

Blake Lively + Lorraine Schwartz = BFF?

Okay, so lately I have noticed Blake wearing a lot of jewelry, and I mean a lot. Even lil' Jon and rappers everywhere with their heaps of bling are like "damn gurl! wassup!?" that is if they could pronounce vowels.  Anyways, Blake. Bling. What be happenin'? Well it turns out the majority of the jewelery that has been lent out to Blake has come from CDFA member/designer Lorraine Schwartz.

Late last year Blake attended the designer's launch party for her 2BHAPPY collection, not to be outshone of course by her Diamond Monkey collection, and I suppose a mutually beneficial relationship was forged. No, Lorraine is not Blake's Sugar Mama, she just gives her sparkly stuff when she struts red, fuzzy ground.

I know what you're wondering. How much is one of those bracelets worth? Let me tell you:

More. Than. Your. Life. 

Okay, maybe your life is worth more than one of them, but NOT the entire arm party. No way man. Typically when jewelry designers loan out their goods it's only for 24 hours and a security officer is assigned to stalk them their entire evening accompany them to their event and after parties, after which they are collected the very same night. On occasion they are gifted to the celebrity if the jewelry designer is a generous type. I agree with this practice as it prevents people like Lindsay Lohan from committing felony grand theft. I mean, can you blame the girl? Everyone knows you don't inject yourself with heroin in front of a junkie. Why would you give a girl diamonds and then take them away? EVIL.
