Glamour TV: Tressed To Impress Episode 04

Today's new episode of Glamour TV's Tressed To Impress by Herbal Essence was released. The girls, Kellene, Jessie, and Alana got a message in a bottle that hinted that "dressing to impress" was the theme of the day for the last challenge. The winner receives $10,000 shopping spree and a chance to represent Herbal Essences on the pages of Glamour Magazine.

The ladies showed up at the 10Eleven show room and a runway was set up with models fiercely strutting runway fashions. The goal was to take high fashion and incorporate into every day looks. Each girl got 2 models, a hair and makeup person, 4 racks of clothing and 60 minutes.
My favorite look was definitely by Kellene, her styles were fierce and she took runway pieces and made them translate to a day or night look seamlessly… so this time I totally agreed with the judges choice:

This was Kellene's first look. I loved the way she paired the boots with the bag and the outfit. Each piece fit perfectly as far as length and size with the skirt, plus the jacket and belt was a perfect mesh.

I loved this look! The dress and belt were perfect and the long pontyail style was classic. This could be for day or night easily.

Next week is the last episode and a winner will be chosen… .Go Kellene! Like This? Love This? Let me know!

Technology & Fashion NO!

This Nintendo purse is a technology and fashion no... I don't think I need to say any more:

Going Green Doesn't Mean The Death of A Fashionista....

Today is Earth Day and even though I celebrate ever year, for some reason this year is really close to my heart. If you know me you know that this year I started creating homemade facial masks, stopped using plastic bags from the grocery store, got my electricity bill down to $100 this month, and I am transitioning to a green but fashionable lifestyle this year. Why?

1. Going Green Doesn't Mean The Death of a Fashionista! I want to prove to the world that going green doesn't mean that I have to be barefoot in the park... sooo, I'm still going to wear fingernail polish, drive a car (sorry no bus rides for me…it’s too hot in Arizona), and covet Jimmy Choos, but I think fashionistas can balance that out without losing themselves.

2. My first name, Tierra, actually means Earth in Spanish and I feel a little guilty about not living up to my name!

3. I really am trying to save money by getting rid of paper towels, changing the light bulbs, and other things. Each seems to have worked out to my advantage. I actually just started to feel the economy personally last month...

Anyway.. that's my "green" speech! To celebrate Earth Day here are my top 5 favorite things... from fashionable technology to fab green accessories:

Project Earth Day Eco Fashion Show

Sainsbury Recycled Plastic Collection

Zoe & Zac Eco Friendly Shoes and Accessories at Payless

The Upcoming PeaPod by Chrysler

Kumvana Gomani Green Jewelry

TMobile Sidekick LX: Style Meet Technology

Recently a fashion blogger friend (Jordana from Clutch 22) of mine sent me a great lead about the new T Mobile Sidekick LX launching in exactly 22 days as she was on her way to New York to check it out. Being a technology and fashion gal... I had to see what she was raving about.

But first, let's reminisce on the top 3 T-Mobile Sidekick fashion moments that made us fall in love with the most famous celebrity cell phone in the first place:

Number 3: Sidekick Bling

Not sure when it started, but adding crystals to a T-Mobile sidekick changed the game. All of a sudden everyone wanted to bling out their phones... but unfortunately... nothing looks as good as the Sidekick and Swarovski Crystals…no matter how hard you try…and trust me I’ve tried.

Number 2: Celebrity Style Wars

Celebrities love to be the first to have it all. Famous people who carry Sidekicks today? How about Hillary Duff, Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, and Rachel Bilson.... just to name a few.

Number 1 Sidekick Moment.. (drum roll please): Paris Hilton Sidekick Hack

Remember back in 2005 when Parish Hilton's Sidekick was hacked and all the dirty details were leaked and posted on the internet? The Queen of making accessories out of the most unlikely things was probably the poster child for fashion and technology... believe it or not, the incident made the Sidekick even more famous..

So what can you expect from the new Sidekick LX?

Social Networking Galore
One of my biggest frustrations about cell phones is the slow updating to my social media websites. I want to post what I'm doing as I'm doing... not afterwards. T-Mobile introduces 3G enabled Social Networking Apps that let you network and interact with friends on the go.

GPS for the rest of us
Okay.. I can't go anywhere without my GPS. I get lost everywhere I go. Actually, me and my good friend Tammar actually have an in car reality tv show (imaginary of course) that showcases all our driving mishaps.... and boy do we have a lot of them. T-Mobile introduces live search, assisted directions, and geotagging of your images.

Looking Good
My last favorite feature has to do with style. No one wants to carry around a phone anymore that doesn't look great. The new Sidekick LX will be the thinnest with the largest screen and an amazing 3.2 MP camera with autofocus and flash.

Check out the features for yourself and also check out Jordana's post over at Clutch 22 to get all the details. Like This? Love This? Let me know!

The KeyBag by Joao Sabino

I'm still getting through Elle Magazine's April Issue. I kind of have this thing where I read each of my fashion magazines cover to cover each month, but in order of my least favorite to favorite. Elle Magazine comes close to the end because it's one of my favorite magazines.

Today, while reading, I noticed on the Get The Look page in the bottom right corner was the Keybag by Joao Sabino. It's utterly fab and chic at $168... I instantaneously had to blog it (that's how you know something is great.. .when you run to the computer to write about it). Want it? Well, You can purchase the bag at Like This? Love This? Let me know!

New Blog Alert: Professional Style File

Check out this new technology and fashion blog called The Professional Style File. The Professional Style File pairs top business women and celebrities with amazing laptop bags. The talented crew over at CareerBags, the online store that carries designer laptop bags for women, takes a look at powerhouses, like Kate Hudson and Suze Orman, and give them a professional bag that fits their personalities. Definitely a great read... Like This? Love This? Let me know!

My Best Friend Tiffany & Co. Joins The Social Media Age

I love Tiffany. I met her when I was about 12 years old. I was flipping through my mom's Vogue and I saw it... a beautiful ring by Tiffany. Tiffany and I aren't on the greatest terms right now. You see, when I got married I really wanted her as my Maid of Honor, but financially, it just wasn't feasible.

Well, fashion and technology have put Tiffany back in my good graces because after 172 years Tiffany is joining the age of social media. Tiffany and Co. now officially has their own Facebook Fan Page and as of today has over 128,000 fans!

From browsing the Tiffany & Co. fan page here are my favorite moments (yes, I said moments):

1. Video of an Interview with Paloma Picasso... A Must Watch!!

2. Fan photo of a romantic gesture by Rommelln Fisher... so romantic.

3. Images of stacked Tiffany Celebration Rings from Tiffany and Co.
I love it when the Fashion Gods open up a few doors so we can get a look inside. Oh and I'm on Facebook Too! Like This? Love This? Let me know!
