I love these Marc Jacobs bags! I so wish I could buy one of these so bad!
His bags are so polished and to die for. I really like the quilted fabric feel and look, and I like the way he uses gold metal tones in the zipper and clasp/hook/Etc pieces.
A Marc Jacobs bag is a staple for any wardrobe. And hopefully, someday it will be in mine.

It's called "All Nighter" on the Pure Ice line by Bari Cosmetics.
Their site is http://www.baricosmetics.com
This polish has a beautiful metallic luster and the brush makes it easy to apply.
And because I'm so messy with nail polish, I am happy to report it comes off finger tips easily.
I bought this nail polish at Walmart when I was in West Palm Beach a few weeks ago, and have continuously wearing it.
it tends to come off a bit on the tips of my nails and when I was at the beach, the salt water and sand took it almost completely off.
I give it an 8 of 10.

- A new average sized roll of yarn of your color choice
- A K/101/2-6.50 MM crocheting needing (Mine is from Boye and you can find them at any craft store and some Walmarts)
- A few small balls of different color yarn for fringe
**Note: This project requires medium crocheting skills. There are plenty of How-To's online to help you, but learning is a bit difficult over the internet.
Step 1: Chain 100 basic crochet links
Step 2: Crochet 6 loose rounds
Step 3: Add fringe:
I used really long peices, and what I did is I used an already cut peice to measure the others. For my fringe, I used primarily a coral pink, and added 6 strands of turquiose yarn, and 3 peices of the yarn I used for the body of the scarf.
Just make sure you evenly distribute your less common colored fringe, to give an even look.
It's going to be so good when I can see again!
I've heard there is a big trend in "nerdy" glasses, which are basically plastic rimmed in tons of cute, bright colors.

I really liked the article about teens doing outragous things for designer clothes and fashion shows (Hot Topic: Guilt Group by Evonne Gambrell)
The things girls will do for fashion is quite ridiculous, and they'd rather steal from someone who earned those clothes, instead of working for them themselves.
It's truly quite saddening.
Also, I liked this month's Beauty Blogger story, called Monster Ball by Eva Chen. It's abotu Lady Gaga and her entertaining fashion sense and her promotion of MAC Viva Glam products for AID research.
I just adore Lady Gaga, because she's not affraid to wear something totally crazy and fierce. In a way, she's a bit of a role model, someone to look up to that cares more about how she sees herself than everyone else.
Overall, this edition of T.V. was awesome! I loved it! <3
