Ciao, bellas! Sorry I've been so MIA but Tumblr has been getting all my love lately. I can't help it, I'm a whore for pretty pictures. XD
Let's go over what's been happening in the world, shall we?
Boutiques.com made it's debut this week and even though it's in its beta stages, it's pretty damn good. It's like your bookmark lists meets Pandora except on crack. You can search for and browse the looks you love and save them eventually creating your own "boutique". Google, the creators of the site, take it one step further by suggesting things you might be into based on a survey you take during the registration process. And by suggesting, I mean inundating you with pages and pages of shit you probably would not have ever stumbled upon on your own. It's pretty cool.
And like anything fashion and online related, the fashion blogger are all over this one. If it tickles your fancy you can follow the likes of Jane from Sea of Shoes (::yawn::) or Karla of Karla's Closet (weird but not boring at least) and a few others. Or if you'd rather follow someone with actual clout, there are celebrity, brand, and retail endorsed boutiques as well. Google is all about the options, you know.
You can take a peak at my boutique, here!
The American Music Awards, aka the bronze medalist of relevant music awards, was this week as well. I couldn't tell you a thing about who won, but I can tell you a lot about who showed up looking great:
(Miley Cyrus in Marchesa, Katy Perry in Badgley Mischka, Kelly Osbourne)
Ok, ok, I'll Google who won for you. ::ahem:: Rihanna awkwardly danced her way to the Soul/R&B Female Artist of the Year Award while Usher glided his way up to snag the Male division. Lady Gaga and her awesomely weird self won the Pop/Rock Female Artist Award while The Black Eyed Peas won the Duo or Group division by default. (Because there are other Pop groups out right now...?) Glee continues to dominate the world by winning the Soundtrack of the Year Award while our favorite pre-teen, Justin Beiber sweeps the ceremony by winning four awards including Artist of the Year. ...Um, Imma leave that one alone. For a complete list of the winners, be sure to stop by twirlit.com.
Also, people are still looking for Natalee Halloway??
Black people Urban news, two highly anticipated albums finally debuted this week: Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy & Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday. In true Kanye fashion, from what I've heard, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy takes the listener on a journey of epic proportions all while telling you exactly how epic it is. And as much as you just want to roll your eyes, you find yourself bopping your head instead.
In the Oooh girl you are so creative! division, Nicki Minaj hoots and hollers her way through 13 tracks which to be frank is 13 too many. Sorry. I happened to catch her on 106 & Park where she performed to a crowed of Yaki sponsored pink wigs & male chicken head enthusiasts. She also interview for like 30 whole mins (again, 30 too many) ::yawn::. More notably she wore some bad ass tights:
Which you can "steal" for a cool $210. Heads up for boutiques.com for recommendation!
Don't you just love when things come full circle? :)
So tell me,
Out of what happened this week, what did you find most interesting?
