half an amber rose, on the rocks please.

“Sometimes in life, you need a change,” she Twitters.

“Something deeper than what you thought you were capable of …

Something that displays the ‘I don’t give a f—‘ attitude that was always present, but never showcased …

Something that will shock your mother, but make her call you a ROCK STAR.”

We can sorta appreciate the rebel tone and deep message but this baldy screams more like Britney Spears pre-breakdown … not even half the haute of Amber Rose’s shine. Maybe if she went all the way? I don’t know … Truly, at this point we’ve seen it all. Kelis, Kesh, J Davey … And, for some reason, this girl Alice Dellal gets the same exact high fashion ROCK STAR coiffure right but Cassie doesn’t quite do it … for us anyway. She may not be a bad ass but she’s still a flawless beauty. So darn gorg! We’ll continue to hate on that.

MTV thinks Reality TV is like Sex

Posted in american history, homeroom, homework, plagiarism, raise your hand, research, Your Fashion Fix by Staff on December 12, 2008

Just when I started falling asleep during episodes of the Hills, MTV announces two more ridiculous spinoffs. Bromance … which you can google because we won’t wrap our brains around something so superbly stupid. I’m slightly more moved by the idea of the ‘The City’ starring Whitney Port.

Up until now we’ve appreciated Whitney as Lauren’s single ironically ‘normal’ friend who appeared to inherit her pseudo celeb status through sheer luck after going after an internship at Teen Vogue the normal, unscripted way. We can only speculate that her leggy, near-model stature … amazing blonde hair, and cute looks made good choice for television and that couldn’t have hurt her interview as Teen Vogue already knew they would be taping for televisio. Most interns starts out awkward and slightly ridiculous anyway so whatever works.

Check out the preview here.

As boring as this series looks, i’m giving it to this girl because I wish I had Kelly Cutrone on speed dial.

Copycat: Victoria Secret does Marc Jacobs

Posted in funky fresh dressed, hell yes, lunch money, plagiarism, Your Fashion Fix by Staff on October 16, 2008

Last fall/winter, Marc by Marc Jacobs offered us some of the most playfully cute booties and we were sold. But at $500-600 a pair … they were just that … a sight to behold. There wasn’t any use crossing our fingers for discounted sale opportunities. Apparently we weren’t the only ones paying close attention; these lovelies sold out in no time or even worse, the smallest most unreasonable sizes lingered around just to taunt us. These booties weren’t our fave of the offerings ( don’t even get us started on the pair we peeped in Teen Vogue) but we loved how practically urban they were – the simple design – and those compassionate chunky heels. Now we’re talking a crush that is many months old now … almost a year. And, as hints of cool air roll in again, we were reminiscing on how perfect they would be for Fall frolics. After being attacked by 15-25% off sales promotions – one after the other – from the Victoria’s Secret mailing list for weeks now … I finally decided to take a look at their offerings and here I see … an almost exact replica … the suede-on-suede almost better in my opinion … at only $88 dollars. A steal. 25% off new fall footwear styles you say Vicky? You guys already know what I’m thinking.

In just about every case, people say that being a copycat is an example of bad etiquette. And usually, we at FE hold our head up against faux luxury items and heinously blatant Forever 21 runway remakes. None of us can afford a Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag as much as we may covet it and though we walk down Canal at least once a week, buying a knock-off would be unforgiveable. We’ve lusted over the classic Chanel quilted handbag for what feels like a lifetime! Unfortunately, we’re giving in this time. Don’t judge us!
