Designer Disaster

At the unveiling of the Haasya Chandna collection, you'd be surprised by the number of fashion disasters. The collection was filled with cute, colorful cocktail dresses. But how does the designer herself fail to see that her designs look good on ladies with mile-long legs, but do not flatter petite gams (Haasya Chandna is in the center in red). I'm also not a fan of asymmetrical hemlines that extend beyond the knees.

Divya Dutta OD'd on pink, satin froufyness. Her babydoll further clashes with her chunky silver platforms. And that teeny little "bag" she's carrying - what can she possibly fit in there? She can't even fit her cell phone in there so she's resorting to carrying the phone in hand. Isn't that the point of a clutch? To hold items so you don't have to? In any case, somebody should inform Ms. Dutta that Vickie's Secret sells both regular clothes and lingerie so she'll be careful the next time she places an order. Teddies aren't exactly appropriate for a fashion launch unless it is the actual VS fashion show.

Tulip Joshi's ill-fitting black pants were not eclipsed by her LV Vernis Roxbury Drive bag. If she had to wear that top, perhaps she should have paired it with properly fitting creme pants? Also, it appears that Loveleen and Tulip share design tips. Maybe they should stop sharing?

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
