It's really good!!! I like it better than Lola mostly because it isn't as in your face as Lola is.

you've spend 5 years trying to find a knock off of this?
nymphadoratonks 21st-Jul-2011 11:22 pm (UTC)
mostly just looking at anthropologie or urban outfitters for whoever is most likely to do it fastest but yeah, that's about the time it came out?

His Marc By Marc Jacob's Ruby Barrel Bag has been on my want list for 4 years. I can't find one anywhere. I know the feeling.

sprinklebell 21st-Jul-2011 11:22 pm (UTC)
can you sew at all?
nicolesnitchie 21st-Jul-2011 11:23 pm (UTC)
it looks like a nightgown.
para1 21st-Jul-2011 11:24 pm (UTC)
You should have used the time to learn sewing.

omg bb why, it's so ugly :(
sevenbeat 21st-Jul-2011 11:39 pm (UTC)
5 years? You could have just saved up and bought the real thing for how long you waited.

dasvedanyaanya 21st-Jul-2011 11:39 pm (UTC)
Why? It looks so cheaply made. I don't think you'd have a hard time making this yourself or finding a simple pattern and altering the neck to plunge a bit deeper and just add lace down the middle.
royalantares 21st-Jul-2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
Aww, I would sew this for you if you had a dress and lace.
jeveuxmacaron 22nd-Jul-2011 12:32 am (UTC)
aww dont worry bb. ive spent an equal amount of time trying to find a cheap knockoff of this necklace


Pendant (see more diamond jewelry)
shockerrrrr 22nd-Jul-2011 12:58 am (UTC)
I'm sure i've seen something similar to that on eBay(UK) - I'm pretty sure it was made by ASOS. Awful quality, but If you really like it...
pseudosoliloquy yeah, i went there.22nd-Jul-2011 01:59 am (UTC)

myhipusername 22nd-Jul-2011 05:09 am (UTC)

ilikeandrewbird 21st-Jul-2011 11:16 pm (UTC)
LIES. His favorite thing is porn and his second favorite thing is protein bars.

Love him. He shouldn't have put his name in every single store, and on every single item, though.
rebeccamars 21st-Jul-2011 11:23 pm (UTC)
I think his favorite thing is the video of drunken John Galliano
trixx_r4_kidz 21st-Jul-2011 11:17 pm (UTC)

The one of him as a Simpsons character makes me laugh though.

a transition scent for spring to summer? wow. and all this time I've been wearing the same perfume year round. I'm a horrible person.
missheidimontag 22nd-Jul-2011 01:01 am (UTC)
clearly, starting a prayer circle for you rn
sylarsexypants 22nd-Jul-2011 01:40 am (UTC)
maybe i'm just a victim of marketing, but i cycle my scents. the ones i wear in winter are too heavy for me to wear during summer because its hotter and the scent because a little too overpowering

Lola and Daisy are pretty much the two i can find myself wearing from spring through fall. I tend to switch to another scent for winter
