Don't vote discrimination into the Constitution. Vote NO to Proposition 8.

Conde Nast has just announced that Men's
Vogue will be folding. Sadness. What will gay
men and well-dressed heteros read now?!

The new issue of Italian Vogue has raised some eyebrows,
featuring P. Diddy and his children; naked. I personally think
the cover is lovely. What do you think?

With the upcoming election, I've got peace on my
mind. Pictures compliments of the Visual Dictionary,
which was brought to my attention from Kelly!

Painting the Roses Red

Something about white roses reminds me of Alice in
Wonderland. We're painting the roses red, we're painting the
roses red! (I have a very thoughtful boyfriend).


Watch the eyebrows at the end. Priceless.


If I were a wedding-woman, eloping in Italy, this
would be my dress. By Priscilla of Boston.

And this would be my veil.
Birdcage veil. Amazing.

Me in a nutshell.
Seems to be a trend going on here...

Happy viewing, kiddies.

Oh My Heavens!

Brace yourself, ladies! Introducing Shoetube; an online video website dedicated to the love to shoes.

Can I just say that I am obsessed with the "Fetish" shoes. I love, love that Louboutin chooses red soles, because he loves the saturated colors of Andy Warhol. Amazing.

Halloween is just around the corner.
What are you going to dress up as?
That's me in the far right. Princess all the way, naturally.

Paris, je t'aime

One of my favorite parts of Paris; the food!

Photo shoot in the streets of Paris.

Underside of the Eiffel Tower, of course.

Being a tourist.

The French are rude and snotty. Well, the French don't think so and they'd like to prove it to you.

A group of friendly Parisians have come together to show tourist around Paris - for free! These Paris Greeters, as they are called, speak many different languages and are local volunteers who are eager to show their Paris flavor to others.

"The visits are as eclectic as Paris' neighborhoods. Some greeters will ride bicycles around town with you. Others will help you sift through antique shops, let you in to local artists' studios, or have you taste the best pastries in the city," said a representative from this group in an MSN article.

"City officials wanted to change the image tourists have of Parisians," said Dominique Cotta, president of the Paris Greeters.

As somebody who visited Paris this past summer I experienced Parisians are warm, sophisticated, and fun. "You cannot confused elegance with snobbery." So true.

That being said, I am pleased to hear that the city of Paris is taking this reputation by the horns and turning it around. Magnifique!

Date Night Revised and Revamped - Fall Edition

Seeing as the economy is metaphorically curled up in the fetal position right now, I know we're all looking for ways to save moo-lah, particularly when it comes to taking out your guy or gal. Let's take a look at some fun date ideas (or for some good times with your friends) that won't empty your wallet, while taking advantage of the beautiful fall weather.

1. Drive-In Movie Theater: Drive in movie theaters are few and far between these days, but there is one in Stephen City (ya know, past Winchester) that is still alive and kickin'. There's nothing like cozying up to your hunny, while watching a classic on the big, BIG screen.

2. Corn Maze: If you're in the mood for a little fright and confusion, then check out Leesburg's infamous corn maze. It's 11 acres of winding fun. Check it out at night for the most fun. Click here for details.

3. Apple-Picking: Cox Farms in Centreville has a ton of fun, fall things to do in this delicious, crisp weather. From apple-picking, to hayrides, to pumpkin picking, to home-made apple cider, Cox Farms has it all.

4. Ghost Tours: Check out Alexandria's ghost and graveyard tours. "You’ll follow an 18th century costumed guide by lantern light through the haunted streets of Old Town hearing ghost stories, legends and folklore," according to their website. Sounds spooky. Click here for more details.

5. Haunted Woods Tours: Sterling's Algonkian Park is home to a haunted woods tour every fall. Check it out here. Prices range from $10-$13.

And there you have it, folks. Happy Fall!

Ode to Men's Fashion. Suits in Particular.

Fashion Week has come and gone and I thought I'd take a moment to talk about the men's
fashion. So many men, so little time. Nothing makes my knees weak like a well-dressed man.
No point to this picture, other than to
oggle this man-candy. You're welcome.
Tip: If you have a body like this, don't ever
wear clothes. Ever. Seriously.
Boxers by D&G.

So Parisian and amazing! Suffice it to say,
I don't know too many straight, American men
outside of NYC who would wear this. Too bad.
Tip: The days of not mixing brown and
black are out. Tricky, but do-able.
Suit by Trussardi.

This suit is so modern and sleek. I love
the use of white and the small embellishment
on the tie. Nice touch. Tip: Baggy pants are
usually not flattering. They shouldn't blow in
the wind like scarf. Be weary of bagginess!
Suit by Viktor and Rolf.

I really enjoy the casual, yet still dressed-
up look to this outfit. Tip: Although I am digging
this 50's-esque hair in a runway context, I would avoid
hair like this to stay modern.
Outfit by Tim Hamilton.

I have a thing for skinny-ties. Sure, not everybody
can pull them off but this model definitely can.
Tip: Single-breasted and one-button jackets like this
one fit better on men with slimmer statures.
Suit compliments of D&G.

Yes, Yes, Yes! I love everything about this
suit; from the bow-tie, to the slim-cut pants, to
adorable 'nerdy glasses.' Tip: Avoid more than one
pleat because it'll make you look 'pouchy.'
Suit by D&G.

Who Wants Baileys?

This guy is pretty much my favorite guy on YouTube, hands down. It's Jersey-mom meets track suits, meets tacky-tastic. More below.

This is every mother on Mother's Day.

Perhaps the reason I find him so hilarious is because I have met so, so many mothers exactly like him. Amazing.

Cox Cable

I hate Cox Cable with a fiery passion. That is all.
