Each one different, and meant to wear all together as a group, these aggressive Balenciaga beauties are some of the most coveted jewelry right now. $205 USD for one, $765 for the set. Sold out everywhere.

I saw these in the Chanel store in Florence this week and fell in love. Of course they cost €850.00. So these are the LUST and I need to find the MUST in an US Weekly "get the look for less!!" type of way. They have a great '60s tomboyish way about them that makes me want to wear then with sweet dresses or shorts as I make my way down to the Sandlot. Lol "FOR-EH-VER! FOR-EH-VER!" #90sjoke
With the ever rising prices of the Carnival experience, I keep joking that there may be a market for my degree in Trinidad after all. The amount of money I have spent in the past eight years on costumes alone could probably have bought me a lovely starter collection of high end accessories which I would still have today. As everybody knows I'm not going to be in Trinidad for Carnival this year but in all my trolling of luxury items that I can't afford I can't help notice how carnival-esque they can get, while, ironically, being totally inappropriate for a Carnival experience. So here I present to you my suggestions for an heiress' Carnival kit.
DISCLAIMER: I am in no way suggesting that these are appropriate items for the average person t play mas in.
The Face Half lashes, half jewelry, half eyewear. Yes I know that's one and a half but these dramatic beauty looks defy the laws of Math.
The Monday Wear Who needs to spend time and effort bloodying and burning their fingers as they glue and stud Monday wear when a studded bodysuit is so easy to find?!
The Bag A metallic cross body is the only way to store the vex money in 2013.
The Sneakers Forget the played out slouchy suede boots (please!) What goes out must come back in and sneakers, both flat and with invisible wedges, are still having a moment in fashion. Because of that you can find a variety of fancy shiny glittery and fashion forward kicks to match your costume.
These baubles signal the end of rushing to Wonderful World to pile up your hands with cheap bracelets which stain your arms on Monday and Tuesday (guilty).
