The Diva's favorite Londoner (aside from Victoria Beckham, she looovvvveees her) is at it again. My new BFF across the pond, Kate Middleton has (gasp!) worn something twice...again!!!

While on two different shopping trips (August 1st and 8th) , The Dutchess was spotted wearing the same scarf as well as the sweater. Hmmm, this Diva thinks that she could have at least swapped out the accessories, but yet I am not the future queen, so I can't talk, right?

Lovely of the Week


Things the Diva loves about these shoes...

1. Tory Burch. Enough said.
2. The print. The Diva loves adding a little bit of animal print to most outfits. Its a little style pop.
3. They could go casual, with jeans, sweater, and fun scarf, or more formal, with a LBD or could go to work, like in the picture above.

The New IT girl.

Mila Kunis is, in most regards, Hollywood's new IT girl. She is the new icon of fashion, the new icon of beauty, and the new actress that everyone wants in their movies. While this Diva did NOT like the polka-dot look on one Ms. Olivia Wilda, (sorry, girl) she LOVES on on Ms. Mila. However, what the Diva is most after are those swoon-worth platform Mary Janes.

Here's a good second, and probably more affordable option:

$109.95

Shellac

This Diva might be late in this game of nail-trends, but she is I.N. L.O.V.E. with Shellac. Love, love, love, love and again, LOVE.

What is Shellac? It is an entire new way to think of nail polish. Most nail salons are using it now. Its more expensive, but worth every penny. It is 14-day wear. 14 days....with twin toddlers, um, yes please! It has virtuanlly zeor dry time, I think mine took about a minute or so. Again, if you have children....hello!! Who has time to wait on nails to dry? And its looks super shiny the entire duration.This Diva HIGHLY recommends it.

Try it out the next time. You will NOT be disappointed.

Dear Olivia Wilde,

I did not realize your next movie is apparently going to be "The New Little House on the Prairie", and you felt the need to make the your mark in the  fashion world by trying to bring back the prairie dress look. Ummm, note received. But, this Diva shan't be cultivating this look anytime soon. She has curves, and a nice body (post-twins, mind you) and refuses to cover it up in a polka-dot horrid number circa 1800's on something like that.

Sincerely,

The Diva

Emma Stone was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week promoting her new movie, The Help (opening this weekend, this Diva LOVED the book). She was wearing a fabulous bold in a swingy hot-pink dress and chartreuse Brian Atwood pumps. This Diva personally loves bold, poppy dresses. Not too sure about the shoes yet, but they are growing on her. And she is also really into the swing dress look right now.  Its a very easy way to look fabulous while still enojying a few cocktails and sushi :)Other looks in pink (all Nordstroms): $248 $118 $42 $48 $148 [...]

The Diva has a stalker. Two, actually. They are two fabulous uber fashionable newly-married people that live in London and have been scouring the Internet looking up pictures of the Diva, and are constantly wondering what she is wearing, and what she is doing. Can you imagine??

Okay, she will fess up. The Diva is actually the stalker. She is only just a wee bit obsessed with William and Kate. And while the rest of the world is also, The Diva's opinion is the only one that matters, obviously.

And speaking of fashionable, Ms. Kate (Dutchess of Cambridge) has been spotted recycling fashion!! Can you even believe it? Its a good thing she is so fashionable, or else this would not be acceptable.

Kate turned up at the very highly-publicized wedding of Zara Phillips in a coat she had worn to another royal wedding back in 2006.

While other Divas might tun up their nose at this, The Diva thinks this is a fabulous, Down-to-earth thing to do. In fact, The Diva loves it so much, she thinks that Kate should come over and be BFFs with the Diva and they can go through each other's closet. That's not weird or stalker-ish is it?

Hello my darling Divas! Where in the world have I been? Well, let's be honest, shall we? This Diva simply hasn't had time to devote to the Diva's Dressing Room. But, SHE'S BACK. And, yes, I know, I know...You need an explanation. Well, here is what the Diva has been up to:

New House
Traveled to Paris, Florida, California, New York, Georgia, Texas, Nevada, and some more fabulous places
Had a baby, actually TWO - boy, girl twins. Can you only imagine how much the Diva loves dressing them up? Mini Divas after all!
Got a new, bigger car.
New career

Sigh, that's all the Diva can think of for the moment. It has been BUSY. And now, she's back, ready to talk fashion and the like.

Welcome back my darlings!!

LIKE A VIRGIN


Okay, The Diva giggles at the title of this post, but alas, she loves the look of the simple virgin-like white dress. And the good thing is that they are everywhere this summer. And in every different shape and price. A fashion idea? Pair it with a fab belt and boho necklace.

The Diva likes trends. She likes to pretend that she is classic chic and endlessly stylish. But, she loves a good trend. See, she said a GOOD trend. Some trends she can do without. She still has not bought or worn a pair of leggings. But she digs this rocker chic look of pairing a cropped leather jacket with a girly dress. She loves the contrast. She likes how its a fabulous way of dressing down an occasion. Its a great excuse to wear your oh so fab party dress to a casual dinner. Just throw on the jacket and you are good to go. So, be like The Divas BFF Nicole Richie and get one. Be part of the cool clique.

TREND ALERT - BEJEWELED HEADBANDS

(image)



The Diva loves looks that are easy. She loves how things look like hours of style-setting, rather than a super quick 5 minutes. And as a Diva, she loves a bit of bling. So, there you are with a two for one! Easy peasy styling, and you look like a million bucks with the bit of bling. She lives the bejeweled headbands you are seeing everywhere this spring. Like, here, on the heads of the Divas BFFs Lauren Conrad and Maria Menounos. So, what do you think DITs? (Divas in Training)

LET THE DIVA INSPIRE YOU


Sometimes when the Diva leaves for the day, she is feeling a little less than inspired. When this happens she rushes back to her Dressing Room and puts on some of Amy Peters fab jewelry. Made famous by Elizabeth Hasselbeck on Survivor, her designs have also been seen on the necks of Halle Berry and Courtney Cox Arquette. The Divas favorite?

BE GREEN (WITH ENVY)


Must you sacrifice style to be eco-chic? Oh no, says the Diva. The Diva loves a time to celebrate. Doesn't matter - Birthdays, Holidays, Flag Day, Grandparents Day - what have you. In The Diva's eyes, this is a time to grab a martini and celebrate! And it is no different with Earth Day. Why not take some time and shop with some eco-friendly store who have eco-friendly stylish finds. The Diva assures you, your girlfriends will be Green with Envy when they see you carrying this fabulous must-have spring accessory. How "green" is this fab clutch you ask? Its buckles are vintage and the leather comes from remnants from the furniture industry and it is lined with bronze silk. Lovely!! £49.99 at Love Eco.

From tops, to skirts, to dresses, handbags, shoes,and even hair accessories! Do you have to do everything at once? Of course not. Add one or two things to your existing wardrobe and you can be a springtime Diva in no time.

There is something about yellow shoes this year that makes The Diva giggle with joy. They are the perfect springtime accent color. The trick to wearing yellow shoes is not to match it with a yellow top. Oh no. Wear it with red, or blue, black, pick, or green. The possibilities are endless.


Be a trendsetter in every price range.

SINFUL SOAPS


Ooooh, she is SUCH a DIVA. So much so that she only bathes in fabulous, luxurious soap. After all, when you have a body like The Divas, only certain soaps will do. Soap from a drugstore or grocery store? Why, The Diva would never hear of it.




When she came across Mi-Spa online, she absolutely had to look around for a special treat. And treated she was!! Mi-Spa is a unique online bah and body boutique that is inspired by century old Asian cleansing power of rice, also known as 'mi' in Chinese. They describe their line as unique and harmonious. Their fab products are said to be blended of the finest essential oils, exotic butters, aromatic fragrances & natural herbs with rice bran oil & other rice extracts to indulge skin in pure bliss.




Some favorites that The Diva gobbled up:

Yes, she admits it. Although quite the fashionable Diva, she regretfully admits she is obsessed with her laptop. Some of her BFFs such as Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton tote around their cute little pups in their cute carriers. Well, the Diva does the same for her laptop. And its the same type of love, believe you me. All she needs are the cute carrying cases and she will be all set. But here is the problem - where oh where to find a fabulously chic laptop case? This was a challenging treasure hunt. She loves the leather ones that you see from fab stores like Coach, but sometimes a Diva needs to be a Diva! That is why she is loving these stylish laptop bags from Kailo Chic. It comes in six stylish designs, and can fit a PC or a Mac!
A couple of faves below:

THE DIVA IS AN AMERICAN IDOL
The Diva admits it. She has a teeny tiny obsession wth American Idol. However, in her defense, so does the rest of the country. So, when she is in her Dressing Room beautifying herself for a noght out, her music of choice has been the current American Idol finalist tracks. (sigh) If only she could be an American Idol. I guess she will have to settle for being a Diva.

As you know, The Diva is all about the late nights and early mornings. And there have been many a day where the mere thought of washing her hair is almost too time-consuming to bear. However, she has always pulled though, because after all, she is The Diva, and her fans expect her to look nothing but her glam self. Buuuuuutttt, she is quite interested in the new trend of hair scarves. Sure, we can credit it the Latina Diva J.Lo for starting the trend, but its has sure caught on. Now Diva BFFs such as Nicole Richie, Eva Longoria, and Lindsay Lohan have caught this trend. (Divas thoughts are that these ladies also suffer from the late nights, but she digresses) Anywho, The Diva loves this look. She gives it a perfect 10. But please ladies, no tacky scarves, m-kay? For heaven's sake, you can get FAB ones at Target! No excuses.

ITS ALL IN THE NAME


Being the Diva that she is, she is obsessed with her name. It's on everything: sheets, towels, purses, pillowcases, jewelry, etc. You name it, her name is on it. But the trick is this: Nothing Tacky, Everything Classy. Trust me, there are many a southern lady who wears tacky monogrammed jewelry that is so over the top you want to sign her up for the community production of Steel Magnolias. So, go with the Diva - Dainty and Divine. That is why she immediately ordered this fab gold necklace from jewelry designer Danielle Stevens. It's minimal, dainty, and in trendy gold that is all the rage. And at $75, it's a steal.

Just when The Diva was getting over her winter blahs, winter came calling again. Snow has been falling all day. While she is excited about a day of lounging, drinking cocoa, and catching up on her soap operas, she was really ready for spring. She has stocked up on the cutest skirts and cannot wait to sport them. But, alas, she must go back to her winter accessories. Which is fine, if you have fabulous one, of course. So, this post is all about the scarfs. Many ways to wear them ladies, as depcited in this post. They can be a fab an accessory as your favorite stylish handbag. But, beware, you can also end up looking like an old bag lady. So, be careful!!
