Flaunt Favorite Lines: Noir Jewelry


I love, love, love, love, love, love, love, nOir jewelry! lol From the prices to the design, everything about this line is freakin' amazing! I've been meaning to blog about nOir (which means black in french) a long time ago as I own a few pieces bought from the boutique I used to manage, House of Petro Zillia. So I apologize for the delay if you don't know about it yet :)

nOir Jewelry is probably the best costume jewelry worth spending any money on plus some of the pieces are gold plated so you can get the most wear out of your gorgeous gems! They carry rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and many celebs have been seen flaunting them out and about. Ranging from about $50-$250 it's not too difficult to save up & eventually own one of these beauties for yourselves!

Here are a few of my favorites from their current collection which is now sold online. Honestly I would post each one because I love them so much, but I had to narrow it down. I seriously need at least 1 new piece in my life, like right now!!! Flaunt Followers what do you think.... isn't it pure love at first sight!?

Flaunt Event: AMAs in Los Angeles

Here are some of my favorite looks from last night's AMA's although there weren't many to choose from. Seeing Rihanna in her performance outfit was confirmation that yet again she can get away with just about anything! I mean really... who else could pull-off that risky outfit like she did!? Also I absolutely loved her origami inspired dress she wore on the red carpet along with Leona's and Alicia's ensembles ...these ladies know how to flaunt well for sure!

The Flaunt Fashionista: so glad in plaid

Cropped Jacket- Vintage
Tank- Forever21
Acid Jeans- Forever21
Boots- Marcello Toshi
Ring- Forever21

This is what I wore last night when going to see Little Dragon at Loft 7. The camera's charger went m.i.a so I had to improvise with PhotoBooth, lets just say it's way harder than it looks to take pics this way and the quality sucks! Oh well it get's the point across I guess....also still trying to fight what seems to be a cold soon! urgh!

Flaunt that Funky Music: Little Dragon

Little Dragon live!

Live-size PACman + vitaminC

Martine and I.... double peace signs!

Last night I went to see Little Dragon! I got there a little late but just in enough time to catch the last song in the set. Smirnoff sponsored the drinks but after just a few sips I realized I was on the verge of getting sick so I immediately got a glass of vitaminC on the rocks lol! Also right before leaving the event I headed to the restroom and ran into Martine of aka :) I commented on her cropped American Apparel top and that's when I realized it was her. She was so sweet and super cute! It was an awesome event, free drinks, cool people, life-size PACman, and dope music, what more can you ask for!

Flaunt Beauty: BeFine (Food for your Face)

urgh! running out of product this is all I have left, need more cleanser!

Have you heard or seen this product BeFine! If not let me be the first to introduce you. It's such an amazing beauty line with face cleansers, moisturizers, facial mask, lip care and more. My favorites from this line are the Warming Clay Mask with gardamom, arnica, & pomegranate, which actually gets warmer once applied. Along with the Gentle Cleanser with sugar, mint, oats & rice that has done wonders for me and removes makeup so well, plus the Lip Exfoliator with oat protein, sesame oil & pineapple which smoothes and gets rid of dead skin especially now in this weather!

What's also really great about BeFine is that each product is of natural ingredients that we find in healthy foods we eat plus it's paraben free, allergen free, and fragrance free. Some may argue that's it's a little pricey but it's so worth it and you can difinatly feel the difference! I've also used the Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15, rosemary, pomegranate & rice, the Pore Refining Scrub with coconut jojoba & citrus, the Lip Serum with chamomile and beets, and the Neck Cream with mushroom, iris flower & caffeine. Honestly if I could use this entire line forever I would... it's that good!

Stop by the site which is also really cool to browse and offers more detail on each product that you can order. Seriously try Befine for yourselves I know you Flaunt Followers will fall in love!

This is what I wore yesterday while visiting the J Brand Factory Outlet. I literally threw this on in two seconds so there's not much color which is why I decided to go with my snake skin brown platforms and tie it together with my gold F21 tassel necklace and black vintage top hat. Today was all about the accessories and jeans I guess!

Flaunt Fabulous FInds: J Brand Outlet

photography by: 3EyesMedia

Yesterday I went downtown to make a visit to the JBrand Factory Outlet. I've never gone before so I didn't know what to expect. Right before I got there upon entering I got really excited and then even more excited as I walked in! They carry current and somewhat older JBrand styles that are available in stores and at!

The newer style jeans for both men and woman are $70, the older styles are $50 and the jean jackets are $150. This is an awesome opportunity to get JBrands for a fraction of the cost especially if they're sold out everywhere else! I tried on a pair of the new 901 denim leggings in Seal which felt so amazing. They're great because you can wear them with everything & they look just like regular jeans!

I also tried on two 912 low rise pencil leg tie-dye styles that were both $50 and I freaking LOVED them! I always wanted them when they 1st came out and now that they're at a reasonable price, it's so possible! You may have noticed the dark version worn amongst many celbs like Rihanna. Not only were they so darn cute but they also felt sooooo good like butter!

Like I mentioned before there will be a 'Shop The Flaunt Files' store coming soon! So for those of you outside of Los Angeles I'll try to include J Brands jeans so you too can own a pair without breaking the bank!

Also stay tuned next week for a special discount
to use by mentioning The Flaunt Files!

Visit them today!

Flaunt Famous Gal: Lady Gaga for Hello Kitty

photos: nitro:licious

Eccentric is an understatement for Lady Gaga! This girl knows how to make a loud presence wherever she goes. Here are a few shots that will be used for a special limited-edition re-issue of her hit album, The Fame. I'm sure she was the one behind the creation of a dress made out of Hello Kitty stuffed animals and cartoon-like eyelids! Hello Kitty is also celebrating their 35th anniversary so this is Lady Gaga's way of doing just that! What do you Flaunt Followers think of her looks!?

Flaunt Designer: Nicole Richie's new line Winter Kate


Nicole Richie will be adding ready-to-wear and a footwear collection called Winter Kate, to her design resume which is soon to come out in Spring/Summer 2010! She named the line after her two daughter's middle names...aww how adorable! I loved her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line with it's bold statement pieces and 60's modern influence, hence the name. I'm addicted to shoes & I can't get enough of them. Plus I'm loving the Winter Kate collection, and need at least one pair! Here's a sneaky peak on the anticipated line which will be worth waiting for this spring.
