Fashion Flashback: Chanel Allure Fragrance

30 Aug

Let me take you back to 1996. As I’m flipping through Seventeenย  listening to Keith Sweat, I can’t help but notice an ad for the new Chanel fragrance Allure, which smells like the woman that I inspire to be. Confident, sexy and rich, all bottled up with a Chanel logo? Oh, how I wish to be 10 years older at the ripe age of 12.

Although I like practically every fragrance that Chanel has ever made, Allure speaks for itself. It’s the come hither of women’s perfumes. It’s warm, inviting…kind of an aversion to the grungy, cool, pissed off feel of the 90’s era. I guarantee you’ll (almost) feel like Yasmine Bleeth if you wear this.

Allure is available at Sephora.com

The 2011 RGRS Gift Guide: Part 1

3 Dec

It’s that time of the year again and what better way to kick off the season than to have an easy gift guide that will have everyone saying, “Wow, she/he really surprised me with that (fill in fun gift here)?!

This is not just any old guide though. I’ve actually been told that I give the best gifts. I think part of it has to do with that fact that I love shopping vicariously through other people but may I add that being a great listener as well as knowing where to source gifts that have a touch ofย  personality really helps too!

These guides are not by “Brother”, “Girlfriend”, “Mom”, etc. I did do them by personality but not just any run-of-the-mill type. Chances are if you read this site often, you actually know at least one of these types very well. Tonight features our first personality type, “The Label Whore.”

Yup, no explanation necessary, although I will proceed. She/he only wears the latest and greatest. Yes, even the nail polish is Chanel. Despite what people may think, this is actually a tough type to buy for. Just when you think you have them down, they are all sick of Balenciaga and onto Proenza……
