Unsung Designer Items I like

I found this site that features emerging indie designers from all over the world. I'm always on the look out for different items and new designers so this site was perfect for me. It is called unsungdesigners.com...lol. Here are some items from the site I liked:

The Pencil by AngelRox - ROX1031 $178.00

Ruched Skirt by Verrieres & Sako $175.00

Perception Ring by Tracey Beale - TBL1009 $98.00

Word Band by Loving Anvil - LOV1005 $38.00

Sometimes one simple little word can speak volumes! Or stack a couple of bands and put an extra spin on it: "genuine chingon!" "lucky rascal!" Choose the word or phrase that stirs your happy place. Sterling silver, hand-engraved.

Have a particular word you'd love to wear? Custom words--12 letters max--can be engraved for an extra $15.

Organic Circle Necklace by Avnon - AVN1000 $75.00

Clothing > Dresses - Pin Tucked Mini Dress by Ouvrez La Porte - OUV1001 $188.00

Lucky says Ouvrez La Porte is "both proper and sexy"... Time Out NY calls the designer "a cross between Audrey Hepburn sophistication and Siouxsie Sioux irreverence"...and InStyle says it's “affordable glamour.”
This sleeveless dress is constructed from black silk charmeuse with a pintucked bib of black floral lace. It has an alluring a-line shape that skims the body and falls mid-thigh. Scalloped lace adorns the bottom hem and arm holes, and velvet ribbon and lace trim the collar. This dress is unlined and has a back zipper closure.

Balloon Dress by Harriet's Alter Ego $150.00

The Wrap by AngelRox - ROX1009 $188.00

This is a different take on a wrap dress. Different in design and also because it is made of 100% bamboo jersey, a naturally anti-bacterial and renewable resource.

Solid Dress Coat by Verrieres & Sako - VNS1004 $312.00

Sheer Dress Coat by Verrieres & Sako - VNS1010 $342.00

Sheer dress coat is a beautiful addition to a dress or makes a simple slip dress a fab ensemble. Has 3/4 length sleeves. 100% silk organza; dry clean. Available in black (shown), grey or ivory.

Designers > Verrieres & Sako - Swirly Patch Blouse by Verrieres & Sako - VNS2004 $350.00

Overall I think the designers, AngelRox & Verrieres & Sako, are my two favorites.

I was MIA...Did you miss me?...LOL

Not even sure anyone besides me and my friends read this. But in case I actually have readers ;), I haven't posted in awhile for two reasons. First I wasn't feeling well. I had some kind of stomach ailment. It was so bad I couldn't even force myself to eat Chocolate!! And those who know me, know that means I was REALLY sick. Then when I got better ,I had to buy items to sell in my Ebay store. I did find some nice things. I will be posting some pictures of my favorite finds in the coming days as well as some more of my opinions of make-up I've recently purchase.
Hope you all were OK while I was away.

Some more great companies helping support Breast Cancer this month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month has really brought the philanthropy in companies out. I think this charitableness by companies is an awesome idea. Companies should adopt this giving back attitude throught the year. I believe it would bring them more goodwill among their customers. I know many of us get frustrated and angry towards companies who are just in it for the bigger bottom-line. What do you think?

Below I've found two more companies that have some really cool products to raise awareness. Check them out.


OPI has just come out with its new Pink of Hearts Nail Lacquer. This pale pink color has been created exclusively to raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.

OPI will make a donation of $25,000 to help fuel research and development toward the fight against breast cancer.

The above info is from:
Think Pink: OPI Pink of Hearts Nail Lacquer | BellaSugar - Beauty, Hair, & Skin.


DuWop fans will be pleased to hear that this brand is a big supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This new and adorable Purse Your Lips ($24) mini purse houses its Pink Shimmer Lip Venom (you know, the mega lip plumper that put them on the map). Ten percent of proceeds will be given to Cancer and Careers.

Cancer and Careers is an organization I have mentioned before that helps provide inspiration, guidance, help and insight to working women living with cancer. If you don't already own a tube of Lip Venom, now's your chance to stock up on a must-have makeup staple — and help a good cause at the same time.

My search for a Stylish Laptop Bag has come up with these designs

So I've been on the look out for a stylish computer bag. I'm so tired of the plain black generic bag that has no style. So I figured I would post some of the bags I found. I'll tell you at the end which one I chose. Enjoy:

Some Modern shaped and looking bags:

Acme Made Designer Slim - Small $149.95

ACME MADE * The Designer Slim $159.99 - $189.99

Here are some Asian material bags:

Abbi New York Jade Silk Brocade Medium Computer Case $79.95

Women’s Business Cases: Laptop Tote, Business Bags For Women$79.99

Jacquard Asian Inspired Laptop Bag by Mango Tango $59.99

These bags look more like handbags but have all the mini compartments you need in a computer bag:

Leopard Animal Jungle Canvas Laptop Bag by Mango Tango $59.99

Faux Suede Laptop Bag by Mango Tango $59.99

MetStyle - Champs Elysees Business Bag - GC-CSB00PP by: MetStyle - $75.00

Milano Faux Crocodile Laptop Case by Mobile Edge $89.99

Baggallini Briefcase Bagg - BBC246 by: Baggallini - CareerBags $90.00

Mobile Edge Ladies Briefcase Full Grain Leather - METBL by: Mobile $279.99

Macy*s - Handbags & Accessories - McKlein Barrington Women's Laptop Tote $134.99 (It comes in several other colors). And after I found this bag, I found this version that has wheels:

Glen Ellyn Leather Detachable - Wheeled Ladies Case - McKlein W Series [ #9436 ] - DiscountLuggage.com $169.99 Again this bag also comes in several colors. Three of which I showed above. I also found that the Orange color can be had at Amazon for cheaper than the other colors if you are feeling so inclined:

Amazon.com: McKlein Lake Forest Leather Women's Briefcase - Orange: Apparel $145.00

These Kate Spade Bags probably will fit a small 13" Laptop:

kate spade lisbon duchess $295.00

kate spade de gaulle triangular duffle $425.00

These bags are similar to the Generic Black bag I was talking about but they come in various fun colors. And here is the best part about them:

Pinder designs stylish laptop cases and bags in a variety of colors using only the strongest and best materials available including water repellent Ballistic Nylon, durable seat belts, 420D nylon interior and nickel plated hardware. Every bag is guaranteed for life and we donate 5% of the net proceeds to your choice of charities.

Laptop Cases by Pinder $69.00

After much consideration I've decided to buy the Glen Ellyn Leather Detachable - Wheeled Ladies Case - McKlein W Series. Why you may ask? Because it has a classic and slightly modern look I like. In addition it has the wheels that you can attach when you are traveling so you don't have to kill your arm carrying it and all the files you might be carrying. So do you have a favorite?
