CHRIS HABANA FW 2010

Not only is Chris Habana one of the most adorable, delightful, generous, likable guys around, but his jewelry line continues to blow my mind, collection after collection. This season features more delicate looks with smaller triangles and shiny silvers but this Fall, Habana turns up the heat with cubism, oxidized and gunmetal, bronze and bones galore. I cannot even put my anticipation into words. Someone is going to be sending me serious packages in Israel.

SHOW SOME LEG

Alright, so, I have this thing where I dont wear pants. Almost ever. Sure, I have pants - two pairs of black skinny jeans (both OAK), skinny indigo Dominos, high waisted boyfriend jeans in baby blue by Philip Lim, baby blue Naked and Famous super skinny and super low-rise, etc - but whenever I put them on, I remember that I find jeans incredibly uncomfortable and, knowing that two hours into my day Im going to regret my decision, I almost always take them off and change before heading out the door. But today, in the wake of Spring/Summer weather and after randomly watching three hours of LA Ink last night and seeing Kat Von D in a pair just like them, I randomly decided to try on a pair of almost-white jeans that we had in the store. They were a size 27 so it was an enormous stretch of my imagination that they would even fit but somehow...they did! and theyre Cheap Mondays! and theyre comfortable! and stretchy! and Im so into them.

Im also due a visit to Urban Outfitters, as I am very impressed with this season looks, especially the legging-like options for my legs. But, as usual, I am prepared for disappointment. I dont have models legs and so I am easily fooled by lookbook photos. Some people can pull off pants and leggings and look sexy and long and feminine but I dont have this natural skill. Im not one of those people. At five foot two, I need heels and minis to give my legs the illusion of length but regardless, Im giving it my all. Trying to, at least!

REMEMBER ANGELA PHAM

???!!!

Well shes off in London making freaky, sexy videos with Europeans. I miss her.


POSTIVELY PITBULL


Its now been five months since Ee-mah first came into my life and, as some of you may know, they have easily been the happiest five months of my life. Shes my first dog so, of course, there were some challenges and though she was very well behaved when I first took her in, after buckling down and training her, she is now the best dog Ive ever had the pleasure of knowing. Shes about fourteen months old now and has fully shaken her initial inclination towards small dogs (due to forced breeding when she was only six months old, making her an eight month old mother immediately seperated from her puppies) and has learned impecable manners. Anyone who has met her knows she is endlessly affectionate and beautiful, if I do say so myself. Anyhow, I know this is a fashion blog but spreading the word about pitbulls (thought Ee-mah is technically an American Staffordshire, these two breeds - the American Pit Bull Terrier and the American Staffordshire Terrier are nearly identical. AmStaffs are the Show Pit, just a hair taller, leaner and with a bigger head, if you can even imagine that) and proper dog training has become a major part of my life and I have collected a few inspirational stories about the loyalty and good nature of pitbulls, especially where their strength - something often put in a negative light - has proven to be invaluable.

Hopefully at least one of these titles interests you enough to read and open your mind to one of the smartest and strongest breeds out there. I realize it is hard to overlook all of the negative Pitbull press but there are several things to note: a. any dog can be trained as a fighting mechanism, Pitbulls fall victim to this solely because of their physical strength and loyalty as an eager to please breed, b. many smaller dogs are just as vicious as mal-trained Pits but because of their size are overlooked as unruly creatures, c. Pitbulls are number one on lists of Abused Animals, Euthanised Animals, and Animals for Adoption. It is so important to become educated on the evils of human beings that are often mistaken for the evils of animals - not just Pitbulls.
