The Hills was a disappointment the big reunion with Brody and Spencer was not what was expected , they didn't even talk . On the show it was Fashion week , Lauren and Whitney went to NY to visit Amy regarding the young Hollywood party . While Whitney was nervous because she had to present her presentation for the setup of the Teen Vogue runway , Lauren was busy helping Marc Jacobs in preparation for his Fashion Show. Whitney did quite well while presenting and Lauren actually got to meet Marc Jacobs which was great . I love Marc Jacobs , I think that he is one of the most influential designers of our time and he has made Louis Vuitton a better brand , if that is possible ;as well as perfecting his own clothing line . So meeting Marc Jacobs was the highlight of Laurens trip while Whitney was worried on how she did on her presentation . Although Lauren was excited to be in NY she was sad bc she missed Brody . i think that Spencer is finally realizing after running into Frankie at bolthouse that life goes on without him and no one cares that he is mad , so he needs to get over himself. Which his girlfriend should have given him that speech a while ago because she realized that episodes ago . What I am curious to see is how long Brody and Laurens little crush lasts and How the fashion show turns out ? I am glad that Lauren is finally happy and I'm sure all her friends are too , because we know how Lauren gets when she has no man . Oh yea I almost forget the most important part , the fashion lol. Whitney looked great as usual , ultimate California girl at her finest . While Lauren seems to adapt to the style of wherever she goes , she wore this wonderful dress that was grey with a black belt , she fit right in with the executives at Teen Vogue as well as in NY. That was the only outfit that stood out , the ladies always look great . I even channeled Lauren today I wore one of her famous wraps with skinny jeans and heels it was quite cute :).
More on the hills next week .

My next stop for great winter attire is http://www.bluefly.com/ , bluefly is a great site it features designer clothing at 40 %-70% percent off. Great if you love labels but sometimes you don't have the money to spend on them. Here are a few of my favorites . The first is a Pasha & Jo leather trench coat the coat was originally $600.00 but is on bluefly for $360.00, the next one is Cole Haan wool-cashmere standing car coat (standing collared coats are in for the winter) it was originally $595.00 but on bluelfy it is $357.00 , the last coat is from Kenneth Cole it is a wool dress coat with a leather waist it was originally $354.00 but on bluefly for $300.99.
My last entry for the luxurious coat post is from , Lisa Kline , I am sure you have seen Paris Hilton , Jessica Simpson , Lauren Conrad , Halle Berry , in the boutique with the black blinds that block the paparazzi . This is a hot LA boutique with great clothing . If you are looking in any gossip mag I am sure you will see a picture of a celebrity in this store so it is only right that I feature it on my high end jackets/coats post. Here are a few of my favorite's from Lisa Kline. A lantern sleeve coat priced at $358.00 , the next is a Rebecca Taylor shawl collared jacket at $495.00 , and my last pick from Lisa Kline is gennera shrunken jacket priced at $258.00.
Ok that completes my fall jacket/coat preview I hope that I have enlightened you on the current trends, new web sites as well as new ideas for the upcoming winter months. As I said previously if these coats are too pricey and you would NEVER spend this much on a piece of clothing then use them as a guide to find cheaper alternatives. Have a good weekend and until my next post God Bless !!!!

Some tips for the perfect jean when you are pear shaped (which means larger on bottom than top) ;
- always look for 1 or 2 percent spandex
- a darker wash is always best, more sophisticated and never goes out of style
- never get a low or ultra low rise always go for just below the waist or regular fit
- Don't believe the myth that hipper women look best in boot cut , I love a skinny jean you just have to find the right pair for you with at least 2 percent spandex and they need to come just above your ankle . to me these jeans show off my hips and my overall shape best. I love them just as well as a boot cut which should be a staple in anyone's wardrobe.
Ok now that the basics are out of the way I will talk about some of my favorite brands and also some new brands that are worth a try.
My favorite brands right now are old navy sweetheart fit , bitten by Sarah Jessica Parker boyfriend fit and also straight leg , seven for all mankind, true religion, jag jeans , little in the middle, apple bottoms , and worn jeans to name a few .
The new brands that I want to feature are Christopher Blue, Jag jeans, and my fave little in the middle ( a jean that caters to women with smaller waists and bigger hips).
My last jean purchase ; I haven't been able to find these in the stores like my Jag jeans so I had to order them online on the http://www.truejeans.com/ website.
These are Jag jeans Chic - a -Dee jean priced at $ 80.00, they are 98 percent cotton 2 percent spandex. These also have a great fit. I actually lucked up on these in Marshall's only paid $49.99 for them.
These are Christopher Blue's Lloyd's Daughter Jean priced at 150.00 they come in sizes 2-16 ;
they are 98 percent cotton 2 percent spandex. I have these jeans and they fit wonderfully.
The perfect website to visit to help you with everything jean is http://www.truejeans.com/ you put in all your measurements and they match you with the perfect jean they will even send you a free tape measure in the mail when you register with the site. Now the jeans can range from $70-$170 depending on the brand the site lists over 100 brands and they are all brand names the thing when shopping for anything you have to remember is you get what you pay for . Alot of my jeans I have had for years and they still look new. The key to the longevity of my jeans is that I put my jeans in the cleaners to have them dry cleaned , I am a firm believer that whatever they use on your clothes helps to preserve them. If the cleaners is too costly for you I suggest washing your jeans and letting them air dry DON'T PUT THEM IN THE DRYER this will preserve the life in your jeans as well as the look of them.
I hope that this post will help someone in their next jean purchase. Any other jeans that I haven't mentioned on the site that you think are great please leave a comment and let me know :).
I am adding two elements to my site , when project runway (my fave show ) debuts I will be giving a weekly recap and opinion on the show. I will be doing this with my other two obsessions The Game( team Melanie )and The Hills( team Lauren , Heidi Sucks lol) . Also I am an avid reader and music lover I will be giving my critique and ratings on books that I read and Cd's I like, so look forward to those. Feel free to email me or leave comments on anything you would like to see added to or talked about on the site. Thanks and Have a great weekend and Happy Friday.

Here is my third fall fashion installment of what Sibbonai is feeling right now and I am really feeling dresses. The top two dresses are from www.torrid.com which I love two things I am feeling right now are grey and a really hot houndstooth fabric and we see both of these .I just want to let ladies know just because you aren't model size doesn't mean you cant be fly bc I am a size 14-16 and I stay fresh lol. I am working on getting daily or weekly posts of my outfits to help my thick sisters get some ideas hopefully I will start that next week.
These two dresses are from my favorite site right now www.asos.com , this site is a must visit whether you are looking for a unique pair of heels or a great outfit this site is the place to visit. Sequins are really in now and so is a feminine flair and that is what these two dresses embody.
The turquoise and yellow chiffon dress is from a fashion staple forever 21 . I love forever 21 a great place to get designer knockoffs for a low price. The pink dress is from another great store Arden b , this dress combines two trends right now sequins and houndstooth , this dress would be great for the club.
