    Mass Attack! Cheap Buys That Don’t Look It

    There’s no more powerful, jealousy-inducing response to people asking what you’re wearing than to say, “Oh, this? You’ll never guess how much it cost.” We get a sick sort of satisfaction in playing this card with our outfits, whether it’s revealing that we paid more for lunch than on our handbag or that our most-complimented dress was a mall-store find. Ahead, our roundup of cheap thrills that don’t disappoint—no coupons, promo codes, or register-racing necessary!

    On Dressing Warm and Fashion Jackets

    I knew a bit of exercise will do me good. Movement will keep me warm and a good set of clothes to keep me warm while I do it. So I decided to take advantage of late night shopping Thursday and went off to take a 20-minute walk to Westfield Shopping Centre in Marion. Shopping is exercise, yes?

    By request of my bestfriend, I set off to buy her a couple of pairs of shoes that she saw me buy recently. Seeing that I got a good deal on these flats, she asked if I get them for her as well. In different colours, of course.

    I was going shopping myself (what else is new?). I wanted to check out a few pairs of shoes I was looking at online and get me a pair of new jeans. But as luck would have it, availability can be a tricky thing with these things. Major bummer. So I ended up hoarding socks and more tights (more hosiery!) and spotted a well worth pair of jeans to compensate for the failed search. I’m still undecided whether to get the pair of shoes or not. I’ll give it a few more days of “sleeping on it”.

    10 Looks Kate Middleton Should Wear on Her Honeymoon

    As you’ve probably already heard, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took off for their honeymoon today. According to the official Royal Wedding blog, the site of the newlywed’s honeymoon “which will be overseas, will not be disclosed in advance…the Couple have asked that their privacy be respected during the coming weekend and during their honeymoon.”

    Oops! Secret’s out! The British tabs are reporting that Kate and Wills will be honeymooning on a private island in the Seychelles. And while Kate will most likely wear some of the sensible items she picked up on her high street shopping spree just days before her big day, we thought it would be more fun to pick out some pieces from resort and spring 2011 that we wish she would wear. Keeping her conservative tastes and penchant for those damn L.K. Bennett wedges in mind, of course.

    The World’s Ten Most Powerful Luxury Brands: 2011 Edition

    If the financial gains that luxury brands experienced in the last year are any indication, we may finally be digging our way out of this recession. After a dismal 2009 with modest gains and quite a few brands experiencing losses, this year’s top ten luxury brand list should have companies brimming with optimism for the future.

    Millward Brown Optimor released its annual list of the World’s Most Powerful Brands this morning. (A little background: Millward Brown is part of WPP, a massive company that’s made up of a bunch of advertising firms, including Grey and Ogilvy & Mather. Optimor does brand analysis for many of these firms.)

    We talked to Millward Brown vice president, Pierre Dupreelle, and his colleague Daniella Segal, who is a senior consultant at the firm, to get their take on the state of the luxury market. This year the category is up 19% as a whole, almost back to pre-recession levels.

    There was some shifting of rank order in the latter half of this year’s list compared to last year, but with the exception of two companies, all made pretty stellar gains. The three big reasons for this? Asia’s appetite for luxury, a commitment to heritage, and the savvy use of digital media. Luxury brands had been wary of the digital realm for fear that it would dilute their exclusivity, but many successfully made the foray into digital marketing this year. Chanel and Burberry (new to the list this year) both did it in innovative ways while maintaining their status.

    Click through to see the top ten luxury brands this year and why they deserve to be there: – fashionista
