Flaunt Film: Lady Gaga ft. Beyonce "Telephone"

Umm not sure what to think of their new video there's quite a lot going on.... and that may be an understatement. It almost seems like they were trying too hard you know? Any-whoo the creativity in Lady Gaga's cigarette glasses and pop-can rollers were interesting to say the least. Maybe I need more time....just give me a day or two lol. What do you think Flaunt Followers!?

Ok like promised I'm trying harder to get outfit post up! Today was a bit warmer than yesterday but the winds were still present and messed up my bun....ugh! I've been wearing my hair in it's natural state for 2 1/2 weeks now (yeah me!) trying really hard not to use heat! Also I'm back in LA fyi as if you can't tell! lol. Anyway the store should be up this weekend so expect mostly blazers, a few accessories, and handbags. I know, I know I've been talking about launching the store for months and by now I should have hundreds of stuff!

Flaunt Event Recap: 2010 Ocars

For those of you who watched last night Ocars you've probably seen the gowns that flaunted the red carpet. If not, here are a handful that were present. Surprisingly enough the show wasn't as boring as I thought it would be and congrats to Mo'Nique for winning Best Supporting Actress!

Flaunt Recent Accessory Buys

Black leather jacket $32.80
Black/gold sunglasses= $5.80
Black/gold pyramid ring= $5.80 (i think)
Authentic Dooney & Bourke shoulder bag= $9.97

I got some amazing stuff while I was in Chicago that I forgot to share! The jacket is by far the most amazing leather jacket that I've seen Forever 21 carry. The quality, cut, details, and price are to die for! I've gotten so many complements and even my sister Laura and bestie Samantha grabbed one for themselves! The shades I happen to see in passing and just had to add them to my collection. The chain-like lining is what makes it ultra-chic! And yes, my obsession with pyramids got worse when I saw this dope black and gold pyramid ring! Like really, how amazing right!? Last but not least I almost fainted when I saw this authentic Dooney & Bourke shoulder back which was in mint condition! I have a similar one purchased months ago that was also second-hand. I swear at times I'm like a vintage lucky-charm!

Also sidebar: the reason for lack of outfit post is because lack of camera :( I'm all about quality so I don't want to take bogus-looking hard-to-see pics with my Blackberry or MacBook....sorry. Hopefully soon I'll be able to get a cam to have more outfit post, preferably a Nikon. If you have suggestions in the meantime let me know!

Flaunt WISH LIST: Nasty Gal and F21 stuff

A few new items I need in my wardrobe from Nasty Gal(right) and Forever21(left)! Some over the top but simple at the same time! I just got the "love" connector ring the other day (which runs small fyi) but wanted to post so you can hurry and go buy! The yellow/gold/silver theme wasn't on purpose by the way lol!

Flaunt Fashion Line: House of Dereon

Honestly, I'm not much of a House of Dereon fan until now because the 2010 Spring/Summer collection looks pretty fierce! Bold colors, daring prints, and eye-catching silhouettes are always appropriate for these upcoming seasons and House of Dereon keept that in mind. It seems as if more thought and effort was put into this collection and it definitely comes off as fashion-forward versus their previous collections. Also how smart and creative for the stylist or whom ever was responsible, to use the maxi-dress as an avant-garde turban or at least that's what I think (maybe mama Knowles hmmm)!? That is soooo something I would have done... LOVES IT! What do you think Flaunt Followers, would you flaunt this collection?!

Flaunt Fashion Line: Asos Africa

Asos launches their line, Asos Africa which is apart of The Green Room collection made of organic and recycled materials and based on free-trade. The line was created with hopes to support trade in Africa and inspired by a recent visit to the mother-land where Asos met with artisans and small producer groups. This line only has a few pieces available as it's selling fast so here are my fav picks that are left to purchase. These beauties embody heavy prints, mixed with bold colors which makes this collection pop and connect with your roots through fashion! Asos Africa is also very reminiscent of lines Boxing Kitten, and Duro Olowu and hopefully plenty more like these become available.

Flaunt Face: Sade on the cover of Ebony April 2010

I would typically label this post "Flaunt Mag" but I had to label it "Flaunt Face" because apparently Sade doesn't age! I need to figure out her EVERYTHING regimen! From her hair, body and especially her flawless skin, this 51 year old beauty seems to stand still in time, literally. I just love it! You better flaunt Sade!
