Just Like Chicken Noodle Soup

Alice In Wonderland is to my eyes as chicken soup is to the teenage soul: MMM mm GOOD!  This movie was some spectacle, some visual, vibrant hour and 50 minutes.  First off, let’s talk about Helena Bonham Carter.  Who is she? Why is she so amazing?  I’m not questioning her.  I’ve fallen in love and just need an explanation.  She is so quirky and great as this mean, despised and emotionally scarred Red Queen.  She brought humanity and humor to an unrelatable character.  This woman is a blessing to her profession.  OK, also, speaking of blessings, Johnny Depp.  I love him.  You love him.  Let’s face it—he gon’ be sexy no matter what kind of mess he puts on, gets into and falls out of.  He was brilliant, of course.

Oh! And! I want this armor that Mia Wasikowska wears in Wonderland during her combat scene.  Yes, metal has its problems, but if it was in ready-to-wear form, I’d be all over it.  Pair it with some black skinny jeans and strappy heels and you’d make a strong, fearless fashion statement at a night out on the town.

Louboutin- Differa Buckle Heel

Hot.Hot. Hottttttt.  The closest to white shoes I own are metallic gold; I almost vehemently oppose white shoes, but i can do these. Ohhh man, could I do these!! The excessive straps remind me of a pair I had when I was a fresh-off-the-boat, skinny, village-tanned tween with messy, middle-parted hair….but, yep, still struttin’ cute little heels. And, I’m loving the ankle-high, punk-chic look. Coming up to $1500 at Bergdorf and Barney’s, these babies could pay for my off-campus housing next year.  Must get my priorities right.  —need job.

“Valentino: The Last Emperor is much more than a fashion movie. It is a portrait of an extraordinary partnership, the longest-running in fashion, and a dramatic story about a master confronting the final act of his celebrated career. “

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, Royal Blue

I checked out Sephora and discovered Christian Dior’s Diorshow in Azure Blue.  However, this is fairly expensive ($24), so I wanted to opt for something less expensive and with the same intensity in color.  I just purchased the the Great Lash mascara by Maybelline in Royal Blue, and ok so Great Lash is considered the number one mascara in America and I don’t completely get it.  It seems like some kind of unexplained craze because I’ve used several less popular mascaras that have similar results, and others that produce different results but looks just as amazing.  Anyway, Great Lash in Royal Blue has an electric blue look from the container to the applicator and on the lashes, but only in bright light.  Under normal lighting the blue looks very dark, almost black once applied.  Still it’s a great mascara for a damn affordable price, and it’s a pretty good substitute so I’m keeping it.  The results:
