So, today was the first epsiode of Canada’s next top model. I’m a big fan of ANTM, so I’ve been excited about this premier. My verdict… meh! Didn’t grab me really, I guess I need to give it some time. Oh the other hand, So you think you can dance (the best show ever) has returned to t.v. I throughly enjoyed that show today.

I usually read the Carnivale but never post. However this topic was perfect for me. Bargain Queen asks What is your best bargain? My best bargains are: 1. My Diesel Luna mules Retail $159.99 – Paid $20.00 2. My Diesel Sary boots Retail $209.99 – Paid $50.00 3. My new Chocolate Bossa Dress I imagine this can be considered a bargain, I paid a quarter of what it was actually worth.
After rumours of Prada working with H&M were squashed I’ve been wondering who would be next. The Daily has told me that it will be Viktor & Rolf. They will do men’s and women’s collection. I have never lined up for any of H&M’s designer collections, much too lazy. Karl’s collection did nothing for me (sorry Karl, I do like your stuff) and there were a few pieces I liked from Stella. I could line up for Viktor & Rolf, potentially even beat people. Time will tell, the collection is suppose to drop Novermber 2006. photo: style.com

Chocolate Bossa Dress This beauty is something I picked up at the Shopping Addicts Sample Sale on Wednesday. I checked the website before going to the sale because I was curious about the Brazilian clothing company Estudio Chocolate. I saw the pictures from the S/S 06 collection and drooled, never expecting to come face to face with this thing of beauty. I almost passed on the dress, but then decided to try it on. It was over at that point and now it’s hanging in my closet for the most perfect summer day. Check the back out after the jump
