fred flare black with color logo

Some might say The Diva could easily be compared to the Wicked Witch of the West. (The Diva just giggles at that, because she secretly calls herself the Wicked 'Bitch' of the West.)

But that did make her think of fun striped leg wear! Even though you only were entranced on The Witch's unfortunate green face and large nose, you must have also noticed her fabulous striped leg wear and black heels, correct? Everyone just seems to remember that other girl - 'Dorothy' - the one with the hideous checkered dress and red shoes. I mean come on. Which would you rather wear? A apron and unmatched shoes? Or a black dress, striped tights and black heels. EXACTLY. As far as The Diva is concerned, different is always much more fabulous.

100% Nylon, these leggings are Bitch of the West Approved. Perfect to wear under tunics or dresses! One size. Pick from blue stripes, pink with lace, black w/ lace, or cheetah! Get them at the uber different FredFlare.com.

The Diva understands that she has already posted about boots once already, but she simply just loves her Michael Kors Boots. She got the low-down on them after talking to her BFF Jessica Simpson. Jessica also loves her Michael Kors Boots. She wears them everywhere. The Diva did explain to Jessica that sometimes when you are photographed, it is not always necessary to have your mouth wide open. Sometimes its okay just to smile. But Jessica does not always listen to The Diva. Ov vey. You can get your very own Michael Kors Boots too and be our new BFF. The Diva, you and Jessica will be such good friends and go to lunch and parties together and dress alike. It will be so much fun. Just wait and see.

The actual boots. In all of their fabulousness, they are a measley $778.95. And worth every penny, The Diva assures you.

But, if you simply cannot bear to spend $800 bucks on a pair of boots, then The Diva begs you to take a look at these Dr. Scholls Illusion Boots. (and she is going to forget for a minute that Dr. Scholls even makes halfway stylish shoes for people under the age of 95). They are stylish, and look quite similar to the Michael Kors. And at $153.00, they are a hell of a deal.

David's Cookies (Fairfield Gourmet Foods Corporation)

The Diva was in one of those crabby moods. Nothing seemed to lift her spirits. She was just bitch-slapping people left and right. She was demanding to her hair and makeup people. So much so that she had to eventually apologize for the scar left on the head of her hairdresser when she threw the hairdryer at him. Innocent mistake, really.

All of that changed, though, when she had these yummy David's Cookies placed in front of her. What is it about chocolate that just makes a girl swoon? Who needs some silly ole' man anyway? Certainly not this Diva. She simply adores chocolate. Any shpae, form, or fashion. And David's Cookies are just the ticket.

Seriously, you can live alone on fresh baked cookies. The Diva guarantees it. Get a tin of these fabu cookies for only $29.99.

And, oh goodness gracious, you can get them each month? I think The Diva's hairdresser would appreciate this. In fact, I think every one of your should get me this for Christmas. I mean, it's the least you can do.


Or, just buy this tin of cookie dough and bake them yourself. (Or just eat it directly of the tin, like The Diva)

For the latest trends of utter fabulousness, The Diva loves Maxstudio.com. MaxStudio's styles are sold in high-end boutiques, department stores, and (thankfully) online. And in this installment, The Diva is all about the skirts. (Think fall and winter chic. Think tights and platforms. Think tall boots. Think how effing good you will look in these)

The Diva guarantees you will be the Belle of the Ball in this long bubble skirt. Cut from a luxe iridescent taffeta, these are so very in this season. It has a side zip, fits true to size, and falls 29 inches from the waist.

The Diva loves to take one random piece and picture an entire outfit (shes a DIVA that way). With this sassy corduroy camel pleated skirt, she is thinking long sweater, brown tights and some chunky tall light tan boots or even fabu platforms. And she can hear you whispering, Is this not a Britney Spears school-girl look? Oh no, my darlings. These are H O T right now. Also fits true to size, it falls 17 inches fro, the waist.

A skirt to wear the most this season? This fun textured black skirt will do the trick. The Diva loves this one because you have the flexibility to dress it up or down. Pair it with a black fitted cashmere and heels to wear to a gala, or over leggings and platforms for a fun night out. Fully lined, it fits true to size and falls 27 inches from the waist.

Dear Diva,

I am a stylish nightmare. I am looking for a fall handbag that is unique, cute, and that everyone will notice. I want to be the center of attention for once. HELP!



Dear Diva-Wanna-Be,

Please understand that it is only The Diva that will ever be the center of attention, kay? Kay. So, you are looking for a unique fall bag that everyone will notice? Look no further than Margaret Nicole. Based in uber trendy Greenwich Village in New York, Margaret Nicole's designs are hand knit, very unique, and completely stylish. She knows style, and has the press to back it up. She has been featured in Vogue, In Style, and Cosmopolitan magazines. (Of course, her major press has been the red carpet premieres The Diva carries it to). The Diva is in love with all her designs. She owns the black bangle bag herself, but simply adores her classic clutch.

And what else is so completely fab about her designs? You can color coordinate them with any outfit! Simply change the ribbon to the many different colors she offers. The Diva guarantees that this bag will get you noticed.


The Diva

The fall and winter is a busy time at Chateau de Diva. The Divas chef and personal assistant will be very, very busy trying to plan parties and get-togethers. But, they are not all big parties. Some are intimate girls nights. The Diva can not watch shows like The Bachelor alone, can she? It seems silly for her to degrade and belittle those silly girls all by herself. So, she enjoys company. When she has the girls over, they enjoy fabulous wine and fabulous food. Their favorite, or course, is fondue. They enjoy nothing more than to dip strawberries, apples and other fruit into yummy chocolate. Or bread and veggies into a pot full of melted cheese. The Diva is excited just thinking about it. That is why she loves the Trudeau 24 Piece 3 in 1 Stainless Steel Fondue Set from igourmet.com. It is the perfect size for her and her friends. Even though The Diva always gets the first dip, they will agree that is is always a splendid night with fondue and wine.

Picture this: Its Saturday Night and you are on your way to a v. social get-together amongst friends. You have always wanted to be fabulous, just did not know how. You have bought this ultra fab super glam black dress. You know it will make you stand out, but its just not enough. You think, what is that one thing that will make heads turn? What is going to be your ONE special piece that people will remember? What will make people say, "Well, that girl obviously knows style."

The Diva knows from experience. She has the RAIN earrings from Prismera Design. The Diva has never worn a piece of jewelry that so many people have commented on. They are oooohhh so simple, chic and elegant. Laura Su knows what she is doing. Every piece is extremely high quality and handmade. They are created with 14K or sterling, with pristine, faceted Czech crystals, Austrian crystals by Swarovski and Preciosa.

RAIN - $50.00

These are the longest earrings The Diva has ever seen. Oh so elegant. The drops mingle in long hair like raindrops. Beautiful Preciosa cut crystal, sterling silver. Available in crystal or light rose. Falls an unbelievable 7.25" from ear. (can you even begin to imagine how effing fabulous I look in these??)

Debutante -$62.00

Falling 4 inches, these and so classy, so chic. Piles of sterling chain finished with black diamond crystals create a perfect sheath of mystery. (Can you not see yourself as a debutante in these?)

Countess - $98.00

Think Bridal Chic. Intricate sterling filigree with a sparkling blue topaz briolette. Make it your something blue.


There is a rule to wearing leopard. There are only certain people that can pull it off. Many of The Divas BFFs can pull it off - Nicole Richie, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton. And, obviously, The Diva. (but of course you knew that) But here's the trick: only do one piece at a time. If its a skirt, fab. Shoes? Oh yes. Shirt? Sure, but make sure it's not too over the top. We certainly do not want you to look like Peg Bundy from Married with Children, do we? Did we have to combine trashy taste with leopard on that horrid show? Shame on Peg! The Diva has found some fabulous products at Macys.com to help you get used to the trend. Remember, my Divas-in-Training, one piece at a time.

INC International Concepts Leopard Print Coat - $169.00

Steven "Lalo" Peep-Toe Pump- $110.00

The Diva is quite frustrated this morning. She woke up from her beauty slumber to find out that all of a sudden it is winter! What happened to our carefree days of sandal-wearing, beach-romping, and margarita drinking? It is too damn cold this morning so The Diva thought she would do a post about stylish winter boots. So, as she is typing from her laptop while under her covers, she will tell you about these fabulous finds from Shop.com. They are sure to keep your tootsies warm while still being so Diva-ishly Debonair. Its time to pull out the Kalua for a warm Irish Coffee, Yum. Brrrr. The Diva hates cold weather.

KORS, Michael Kors - $249.99

You will be the center the universe with these stylish boots from KORS by Michael Kors. The round tow and wedge heel are most definately the look this season.
And with a 4-inch heel you can tower over people like The Diva.

Vivre - $250.00

Love this one with a faux shearling lining. And The Diva also adores the chocolate color. Simply imagine: skinny jeans tucked into these puppies with a fabulous swear.
Can we say Beautiful Ski Bunny??

SM NEW YORK - $61.99

Loving the detail on these. And at $61.99? Hell of a deal.
And still tower-able with a 3 inch heel.

468x60 Banner - General

The Diva is convinced that her and Bobbi Brown (NOT to be confused with Whitney's ex, oh no) are Sistahs From Anotha Montha. How else would you begin to explain how all of her products look so effing fabulous on The Diva? Now, granted, most everything does look fabulous on The Diva. But she simply adores all things by Bobbi Brown. She believes that when Ms. Brown started creating her fantastic line of cosmetics, she must have had The Divas gorgeous face and skin envisioned in her mind. None the less, here are some of The Divas faves all available from Gloss.com:

Creamy Concealer Kit - $32.00
Not that The Diva needs concealer of course, her skin is flawless

Limited Edition Shadow Basics - $45.00
Remember, this season, it's all about the smoky eyes. And The Diva loves pallets. She simply does not have time to be bothered with individual sets.

Long Wear Gel Eyeliner - $18.00
Probably the best product she makes. Take it from me. When you go to as many parties and soirees as The Diva, this stuff stays put for hours.

Best-Sellers Lip Palette - $40.00
This one just won the October 2006 Allure Magazines Best of Beauty Awards.
Snatch this one up before they are sold out.

468x60 Think Pink

Who says pink is boring? Certainly not This Diva. Sure, you may decide to wear some Haynes-Her-Way T-shirt with a big pink ribbon on it for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but The Diva would rather get a Oligve Home Perm (eeeeekkkk!) than dress herself in Haynes-Her-Way. That is why she just simply adores RedEnvelope.com. You can not only be supportive of such a wonderful cause, but also adorn your Dressing Room just like Paris Hilton - all in pink. Now, Paris Hilton is such a dear friend of The Diva, and they do agree on many things. And one is this: That Pink, my darlings, is oh so CHIC.

Think Pink Monogrammed Soaps $30.00
Oooo! The Diva LOVES monogramming!

Think Pink Truffles $25.00
The Diva will assume you know a womans relationship with chocolate

Think Pink Silk Pajamas $115.00
(Good Lord, you can get these monogrammed too? And with chocolate piping? I need to sit down and....breathe....slowly....)

Think Pink Mini Croc Cocktail Shaker $25.00

The Diva cannot begin to explain her giddiness over this one. She feels like Karen in Will and Grace as she can tote this one around in her purse. Martini-on-the-Go if you will, and stylishly at that. Can this possibly be any cuter??

Friday, October 06, 2006



For her second installment of Breast Cancer Awareness products, The Diva loves Fashion Flair Cards. She nearly flipped over these fabulous chic pink ribbon notecards. And you can get them personalized all for $18.50? (Can someone please get her a xanax - I think she is getting a little over excited)

Now she is just wondering how she should personalize??

1. The Diva
2. The "Fabulous" Diva or
3. Most Beautiful Woman in the World

Hmmmm. I think she is going to go with choice number 3.


Apple iTunes

This is what is playing this week's in The Divas Dressing Room. The soundtrack from Season 1 of Studio 60 on The Sunset Strip. It has fabulous music from David Bowie, Tupac Shakur and many other fabulous West Coast artists. She lives to jam out to it.

I can relate with losing your Ralph Lauren make-up case. I have rushed to Rite-Aid, Walgreens, CVS, or Kmart to buy an emergency set. (dont worry we have ALL been there). However, just because it is cheaper than your normal facial indulgences DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO CAKE IT ON TO GET THE SAME EFFECT. Ladies please! Do not let this happen to you:


Good Lord The Diva LOVES Arden B. They have the most fabulous, styles and trends. I f you are one of the unlucky ones that does not have an Arden B in your area, then The Diva advises that you should move immediately or go visit one of your beach houses for the weekend and go shopping. What? No beach house? What a shame. Well, then I suppose your only choice is to do your shopping online at ArdenB.com for their ultra fabulous Fall 2006 Collection. Have never heard of Arden B? Then The Diva thinks you are reading the wrong blog, and might suggest going and checking out whats new at the WalMart boutique for $9.99 and below.
