Ooooo! A QUESTION! The Diva looooooves questions. This hottie reader posted the following question after my Burberry scarf post:

How do you suggest wearing this scarf...drape it...tie it...wrap it?

Thank you for the question. In my opinion, it totally depends on what you are wearing. Are you wearing it under a heavy coat? Are you wearing it over a cute top and jeans and no coat? All of these come into play when deciding how to tie it. (And believe me - there are tons of ways!) It also depends on you. Some ties that look good on some people look hideous on The Diva and make her look like a turtle. (and who wants to look like a turtle?) Lucky for us we have the power of the internet. The Diva found this fabu site with oodles of ideas. Like this:

European Casual

Double Flip

Classic Flip

Classic Drape

Double Knot

The Diva is (as you know) is a self-proclaimed shopaholic. What that also means is that she is a credit card company's BFF. She's no stranger to Department Store cards, Visa's, American Express: You name it, she'll charge it. But she will admit that is it quite hard to keep all of her cards organized. That is why she simply adores these super cute Credit Card Totes from I mean, can these be any cuter??? And come on, at $18.00 each, you can get one to match each of your fall colored purses.

Oooo, it's cold outside Divas!! But The Diva assures you that even though it is cold enough to want to dress like the stay-puff marshmallow man, The Diva begs of you to please stay stylish. How do you do that, you ask? Well, accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!! Take the oh so fabulous Burberry scarf from DITs (Divas-in-Training) this should be a STAPLE accessory in your wardrobe. It is a MUST, hear?

The Diva has never been more excited for a beauty trend! There is no hotter look than the fabulous trend sported by beautiful gals such as The Diva (of course) Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Hilary Duff. What is it you ask? Goth Nails. Oh yes, my little DITs (Divas-In-Training). Dark, goth-like nails are all the rage right now. But before you even THINK about trying this look out, The Diva demands you adhere to the following rules:

1. Black polish looks best on short, square nails. Too long or too pointy and you turn into a vampy trasionista - not a fashionista.

2. If The Diva dares see a chip in your polish, she might very well slap you silly.
Use a top coat daily! It takes five seconds and feels better than a slap.

3. Use two to three coats. No one wants to be Streaky Stella.
4. If black is a little too dramatic for you, try a deep red, plum, or burgundy.

The creme-de-la-creme of polishes to try? Chanel's Black Satin. The problem? It's sold out everywhere. So, good luck finding it. This Diva's advice? Go Ebay. It's your only shot. Auctions are here, here and here.

Ahhh, The Diva's old BFF Kate Moss. The Diva does agree that she is and always will be a style icon. However, The Diva regrets Kate's poor taste in footwear. (no 3 inch heel?? hellloo)While you may think it is quite suitable (and maybe in style) to wear moccasin boots, The Diva suggests you refrain from wearing these unless

1. It is Halloween and you are dressed Tiger Lilly
2. It is Halloween and you are dressed as Pocahontas

However, The Diva still loves Ms. Moss and if her readers do too, then The Diva must oblige. So here: You can get these oh so snazzy Women's Minnetonka Front Lace Boots at for $63.45. Just please do not buy them for The Diva as a gift.

oh, and P.S: Kate, please stop stalking The Diva with your emails and phone calls. She simply thinks the boots are frigging ugly.


The Diva goes nowhere without her beautiful monogrammed linen handkerchief. You see, The Diva was brought up properly. She was raised to always carry a handkerchief with her at all times in her classic handbag. She is a Southern Belle after all...

Oh, hell, who is she fooling? She only carries it with her because when she sees fabulous, gorgeous jewelry, she tends to drool. So sue her.

How about these from jewelry designer Erin Lilies? One part Fire Opal, one part Clear Swarovski Crystal, one part filigree chandelier and one part silver plated ear hook. And as Erin herself says, "That's a recipe that is sure to look so hot, it's cool." And only $23?
Oh puuuul-leeze. Excuse me while I wipe the drool.

Every Diva has a secret. Be it: how many men she has slept with, double-sided tape, padded bras, or....super-secret discount shopping. And really, that is why you keep coming to her site, right? To hope that The Diva will divulge her inner-most secrets. But, she hopes that this secret is one you hopefully already know: She has been shopping here almost since its inception in 1998. The Diva finds it impossible to find so many fabulous designers all in one place. Want Prada or Via Spiga heels? Fabulous. Hermes or BCBG handbag? You got it. Nicole Miller or Betsy Johnson dress? You bet. Bellino bed linens? Oooooooo.....

You can be assured that you will be overwhelmed at the style. But she also thinks that if you have an alcoholic beverage, it makes the shopping easier.

Via Spiga - $117.00
BCBG - $106.99

The Diva must apologize for her recent absence. She will say that she has been in a drunken comatosed ball on the floor after the recent news of the breakup of her BFFs Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe. So sad, so sad.

So, she is needing to feel pretty and relaxed. And what better way to do that than get a massage. She is hoping her masseuse will use these fabulous products from She is loving this Khepra Massage Therapy Kit. It contains Khepra Massage Oil, Khepra Massage Therapy Lotion, and the Khepra Foot Balm. All for the fabulous price of $19.95 and in its own convenient bag. This should keep her hot sweaty muscle-bound masseuse busy for several hours. Yummm.
