Borrowed Bling – Hollywood’s Best Kept Secret

I recently attended a fashion show at the Beverly Hills Hotel and the highlight of the day was meeting the owner of Borrowed Bling. Their motto is “Shhh?Now The Best Kept Celebrity Secret Can Be Your Secret Too!”

I have always been one to share secrets to help make you look and feel better, especially at bargain prices. Is it time for Last Call yet? Borrowed Bling gives you the opportunity to borrow jewelry, purses, and accessories by joining their service and paying a monthly fee, or by purchasing their “copy jewels” yourself. Yes, I said it, COPY JEWELS! Most of Hollywood can be found wearing stunning pieces made with sterling silver that look so authentic, that you would not believe they are not the real thing. The best part is, that no one will know and you will feel like a movie star on prices similar to your kid’s monthly allowance.

I recently purchased beautiful fun and flirty diamond hoop earrings and receive compliments on them daily.

Here’s how it works. You can sign up for one of three monthly plans to borrow these gorgeous designs or just buy a piece or two to add to your wardrobe.

1. The Countess ($29.95)
2. The Duchess ($49.95)
3. The Movie Star ($99.95)

Each level has a different closet of accessories to choose from. Enjoy the video I have put together and check it out for yourself at www.BorrowedBling.com. Tell them you heard about it on the Cyber-Dating Expert site. You will be both be-dazzled and be-jewelled, with still enough left in your wallet to splurge for that glass of fine French Champagne.

An Evening at Giorgio Armani

It was a red carpet evening at the Giorgio Armani boutique on Rodeo Drive where members of the Costume Council of LACMA were treated to a private viewing of the Armani designed iconic gowns of the past and present.

Eleven magnificent couture pieces were on display including a stunning black gown with a train worn by Charlize Theron which was one of my favorites. This piece was the designer’s first Red Carpet gown from his Prive collection at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in 2005. As you walk up the staircase the first gown you see is a drop dead gorgeous royal blue piece worn by Anne Hathaway at the Golden Globe Awards in 2009. ?Included in the collection is a gown worn by Alicia Keys at the recent 2009 Academy Awards which came from the Giorgio Armani Prive Spring-Summer 2008 Collection, as well as gowns worn by Heidi Klum at the 2008 Emmy Awards; Halle Barre at the 2003 Screen Actors Guild Awards; and Kristin Davis at the Golden Globe Awards in 2002.

The crowd mingled over champagne and tray passed?hors d’oeuvres?and even the men enjoyed the upstairs collection of menswear by the famed designer. Many came clothed in Armani designed pieces to celebrate the evening. The collection will be available for viewing at the Rodeo Drive boutique through the end of March.

The Little Black Dress

littleblackdressThere is something to be said about a woman wearing a little black dress. We just can’t get enough of them.

I recently found this little black dress, with a twist! This woven silk charmeuse dress from Yotam Solomon is made with an invisible zipper and unique cutouts which define the shoulders.

Yotam selected a combination of materials and designs that are exclusively offered on Shopflick. Yotam was one of the youngest designers to participate in L.A.’s Fashion Week, with his own runway show. He has already been featured in Los Angeles Magazine, WWD, and British Vogue.

There’s no need to worry if you don’t have the perfect figure as each Yotam Solomon piece is custom made to order and you can decide what length is perfect for you. In addition each piece will be accompanied by a signed sketch from the designer himself.

Date Night at Donald J. Pliner

It seems everyone is gearing up for Valentines Day which is now less than a month away. Last night, I stopped by the Donald J. Pliner flagship store in Beverly Hills where they were co-hosting “Date Night” along with Angela Oldani and her social networking group, ?”The Guest List.”?

I don’t know whether to admit that I am the proud owner of over 40 pairs of Donald J. Pliner shoes, or whether I should be embarrassed by the fact. ? The bottom line is, I love Donald J. Pliner shoes. They are so comfortable that when I find a pair that I like, I tend to buy one in every color. ?At the boutique, they were serving passion fruit martinis as singles mingled together and looked at the selection of shoes that were on sale. ?We all discussed the various online dating sites we have tried, and several singles were talking about changing their online profile photos for the New Year. I recommended Look Better Online?to those attending who wanted help with their online photos.?

Donald’s quote is prominently displayed at the store and what shoe fanatic would argue with the well-known designer who says, “If the feet are comfortable, so is the body and so is the mind.” Donald will be making an appearance at the Beverly Hills store on March 28th, so if you are in the area, try to stop by and Donald will autograph the shoes on your feet.
