Bollywood Chic

Its time is certainly drawing closer, but will Bollywood fashion finally make it on the runways, and in our closets this spring?

Bollywood movies are gaining rapidly increasing popularity world wide. It made it into the hearts of many Americans with the Oscar winner smash hit....Slum Dog millionaire. I have been watching Bollywood movies for about 3 years now, I can't stop desiring there style. The vibrant colors, dazzling embroidery, and to die for jewelry, should rock the runway this spring.

While I love the 80's, we have gone back to the tried and true 80's look far too many times, and it is high time we try something new; Something fresh, something a little less Eurocentric... Memoirs of a Geisha gave Japanese fashion an era in the spot light, and India's turn is far over due.

I see bits of Indian inspired fashion gracing the pages of Elle and Vogue, but when will we see a bollywood inspired collection? I'm waiting with baited breaths.

Jimmy Choo-pep in your step

Jimmy Choo launched a line for H&M, as I'm sure you have all heard. Women from all corners put some pep in their step to get to front of the line for the Jimmy Choo gold mine. Not only did Jimmy Choo and H&M give everyday women with about 150 bucks or so to spare, the chance to own a pair of the world famous Jimmy Choo. But, to make the splurge even more satisfying (if owning your own Jimmy Choo at a fraction of the cost wasn’t enough) the launch was also a part of Project Pep. They are donating 25% of there net sales to the Elton John Aids Foundation. So if you felt a little guilty when you joined the cashier line to get you a pair of the Jimmy Choo line…DON’T. It was all for a worthy cause. So the next time you wear that fabulous pair--put some pep in your step, knowing that your to die for Choo, could be saving a life.
