Camel's Back!

I just love the colour Camel. For me, it evokes images of warm wool overcoats, afternoon walks in the rain; feelings of trustworthiness and prosperity. This fall, camel is back and with so many more options than just the usual overcoat, you're sure to find a piece that suits your personal style.
Camel's Back! So many choices, so little time...

  1. Dior Nail Lacquer in Mitzah Camel
  2. Madison Leather Satchel in Camel from Banana Republic
  3. All Over Elastic Scarf in Camel from Miss Selfridge
  4. 3.1 Philip Lim's gorgeous Short Pea Coat (want!)
  5. Knitted Roll Neck Sweater in Camel from Top Shop

Nail Polish Obsession: China Glaze Westside Warrior

China Glaze Metro Collection Fall 2011 - Westside Warrior
A new colour in nail varnish this fall is khaki green. There are many greens like this in every line, but Westside Warrior in the Metro Collection by China Glaze was the one I was drawn to.
Blurry cell phone photo for your viewing enjoyment.

I love China Glaze's formula. It goes on beautifully and has a lovely finish. This is only one coat, plus my usual Essie Good To Go top coat! The verdict: I will be wearing this over and over this fall.

Faux Ostrich Satchel Tote

Celebrate going back to school in style with this classic tote from Aldo.

'Teem' Faux Ostrich Tote from Aldo
I am coveting this faux ostrich satchel-style bag. It is large enough for a small notebook computer or an iPad, plus all the essentials you need to get through the day. The classic style goes well with any outfit — from business attire to your favorite jeans and white t-shirt. Available in Cognac (pictured above) or Bone. Buy it now online at Aldo Shoes for $55.

Nail Obsession of the Day: Wet 'n' Wild Sunny Side Up

Wet 'n' Wild - Wild Shine - Sunny Side Up
What a yummy, sunny colour! Wild Shine is very affordable — barely $1.50 at Walmart here in Canada. The formula is great — this is only 2 coats, plus Essie Good to Go top coat.
Wet 'n' Wild - Wild Shine - Sunny Side Up
My only negative comment about this polish line is that the brush is a little too skinny for me. Overall, Wild Shine is excellent value with lots of trendy shades to choose from.

WTF Nicki Minaj: VMAs 2011

Nicki Minaj walked the Black Carpet at this year's MTV VMAs in this:

It's apparently constructed of random stuffies, slippers, bandages and solar collector parts. Love the addition of the hygiene mask — it really brings the outfit together. {crickets}

She's like the budget, flea-market version of Lady Gaga.
