I've had this on-going love affair with something so futuristic, beautiful, powerful yet very very impractical for my budget- the Chanel cashmere and silk bodysuit and leggings from the Fall Winter 2009 RTW collection.

I know a vast majority of Jelly Sandal holders them in a deeper color, use this method but with out bleach.
This past weekend I was on a serious cleaning spree, and while the apartment got a good washdown, so did my sandals.
How is this done? Well first my mom clued me into diluting bleach with my favorite all purpose cleaner- Dr. Bronner’s soap. Again, If you have dark or black sandals- I suggest using this method without bleach!
I filled a bucket with ¼ cup of bleach and ½ cup of the castile soap and the rest was water.
Soak the sandals for 5 minutes and start to scrub with a scrub brush- I use a spare nail brush or an old face scrubbing brush.
Rinse water over the sandal and air dry- I like to set my sandals at an angle with the heel vertical against the wall and the front of the shoe on the ground in a \ motion so that the back of the sandal laces will dry quicker.
After a few hours, I had clean new sandals, fresh laces and no NYC icky-ness.
Do you have a method for cleaning your summer sandals?

I know in the past many of you have sported this look- the My Lips but Lighter. Maybe it was back when you your nails were decked out in Hard Candy’s Sky nailpolish and listening to “ Miss World” or “I’m So Into You” ( or maybe both). While getting your Hole and SWV on, the nude and or pink lips were accompanied by either MAC’s Spice, Chestnut or Wet and Wild’s 666 lip liner to make the zinc lips look “good”.
Never the less, everything comes full circle- so now we have Rhianna in the Vogue Italia supplement doing the same, rocking the super light lip of the 80’s and 90’s that reminds me of camp surf movies- a la North Shore.
In any case, I ‘ve tried and failed at this look three too many times. First it was the trial and error with MAC’s Chai after it was noted that many people used this lipglass as a nude- fine by me though not for me unfortunately.
Seeing the VI editorial is beautiful, and it helps that was shot in black and white but in real life, the look would look sour.
Could this be the “backlash” ( or “Blacklash”) on the fall Noir Lèvres? Or is this attempt to be “ different” in the change of season?

Just had to share my love for Chanel's Wild Tulip Hydrabase Lipstick, I found it just recently and its a great rival to Chanel's Imaginaire Glossimer- basically, its the lipstick form of the gloss. A beautiful sheer plum berry that give the lips a much needed kick!
