Diamond Eyes

Bling addicts might like this new discovery. Diamond eyes is latest trend in eye-fashion. Diamond for a ring is fine but ever thought of wearing it on your eyes as contact lenses? Good or bad, it is for you to decide. Personally, I would not go beyond the green/blue ones...15k dollars is too big for my pocket. I saw the diamond launch pics and the guy in the pic looked like a hero from a horror movie.

Wait till any celebrity wears them..it will might become fashion. Lady Gaga are you listening??



Titanic Gold Jewelry Stolen

The gold-plated necklace owned by first class passenger Eleanor Wildener of Philadelphia who survived the Titanic sinking is stolen from a traveling exhibit in Tivoli Gardens, an amusement park in Copenhagen, Denmark. It is weird as the security alarm did not go off and the showcase had not been broken into. It's insurance value is $19,300 but he doubted it could be sold because it is known internationally.

The Titanic sank in the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912, while making its maiden voyage. More than 1,500 passengers and crew perished.

Fashion : Metallic mood

Add shimmer and sparkle in your wardrobe with metallic clothes and accessories. The versatile metallic silver shoees/pumps are like a black dress - a must. Available in topshop, jimmy choo etc.

Metallic clutch looks pliable and luxurious and adds shimmer touch to your outfit. It's beauty lies is in the versatility of use. It’s the perfect complement to pastels or a white outfit. Add some metallic glamour to a  party frock with the gorgeous gold, silver or bronze metallic clutches. Available at miu miu, Mulberry, Jimmy choo, DKNY, Michael Kors,etc.

A multi row gold/ silver or a simple chunky silver/gold metallic bracelet combined with a jean and a T adds glamour and style. Metallic hoop earrings are all time fashion accessories and signature of many Hollywood actresses. 

Geometric patterned metallic necklace or multi string chain neck piece gives a fuller look to your neck. Swarovski, Chanel, Burberry, Lanvin, etc have unique metallic designs.

Wear cocktail dress or a long sparkly dress with  metallic theme and walk the red carpet :)
