Just watched the latest True Blood episode 'Frenzy',a little slow but the ending(as always) was breathtaking.It's cruel to wait 2 weeks for the season finale.

elly clay handbags

Elly Clay is the ultimate handbag that women can use daily as they run their busy lives. The bags embody femininity and functionality and are a perfect combination of downtown and chic.

The Elly Clay concept is ,”it’s not just a bag,but a brand” and appeals to those you pay particular attention to details because Elly Clay designers are focused in richness of detail,inovation in design & hardware.
Each handbag is a statement of expression and individuality.

Instead of posting photos with the bags ,I made a set with the ones I like the most.

Tomorrow I'm meeting Mina from The fabulous girl's guide to fashion,I'm so excited,now I'm thinking what to wear:)

My program is messy,I should be more organized and use my time more careful.I started to stick post-its all around my desk so I don't forget to do stuff...

I scored this shirt for about 3$,it's a little to big but I don't mind.And yes,I cut my face again 'cause I had a stupid expression.Everybody has their twitches(if I can say so).

Also,I managed to break the bags lock,yeeey and it can't be repaired but I still can use the bag.That little detail won't stand in my way.

Interview:Avant Gaudy's Deb Umunnabuike,from student to entrepeneur

Avant Gaudy is a chic online boutique, where you can find "vintage modern,modern vintage" clothes and accessories.
I asked Deb Umunnabuike, one of the Avand Gaudy founders, some questions about herself and about Avant Gaudy.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You are the co-founder of Avant Gaudy,tell us more about yourself.


I'm also a Political Science major at the University of Chicago, so I’ve often got a recent WWD and also something written by Foucault in my purse. My sister, Jessica, and I started Avant Gaudy in the summer of 2005 in order to keep ourselves busy. Beyond that, I really wanted to connect with and impact the lives of those who were as passionate about fashion as we were, and are. An online store seemed like a perfect way to reach fashionistas all over the world.

Why Avant Gaudy and not another name?

Avant Gaudy
is a play off of the word avant garde, which was a movement that embraced forward thinking, literature, art, and fashion. We select clothing that is fashion forward and yet also has a tinge of gaudiness in the sense that an Avant Gaudy girl or guy is both modern and playful.

How do you pick the items for the store?

All items are sourced from across the United States. We have a full-time team of buyers who dedicate themselves to researching trends and matching these trends up with vintage fashion. Our buyers are intuitive and creative – they know a good find when they see one.

What are your favorite pieces on Avant Gaudy right now?
This silver lame dress was featured on NotCouture,as was this vintage Diane von Furstenberg one.Jumpsuits, meanwhile, are on trend right now, and are edgy yet feminine

What do you love most about fashion?

Fashion allows an ordinary day to be extraordinary. Even if a person does enjoy and choose to follow trends, there's still so much room for individuality. Vintage fashion is the best way to express your individuality – because of its scarcity, every piece is a rare link to the past that fits easily into a modern wardrobe example: http://avantgaudy.com/product_page29.htm

How do you see yourself and Avant Gaudy 10 years for now?

I'd like Avant Gaudy to expand and become even more of an international business than it already has. With the social media explosion, we feel like the time is right to connect with as many people as possible who share our interest in modern vintage. Additionally, I’d eventually like for our brand to serve as a platform for up and coming designers from across the world to showcase their takes on vintage through reconstructions and vintage-inspired looks.

radiant eclipse

This is what I wore for a little get together with my friends. Notice how my eyes change according to I'm wearing?:)

I get so many emails with different sites that want to be featured on the blog some I like, some I don't,some I'll feature,some I'll won't.
I can't post an article on all so I'm thinking of starting a new category, including giveaways and articles that I recently read & loved.It will be up every Monday or Wednesday.

What do you think?
