let me grant you 3 wishes... bahahaha... can you handle 3 of me?!

one of the rare days i make it to LA. i participated in Freedom Walk LA and was there to support Senhoa. there's always so many cool random places all over the city so every time i'm there it's like a mini adventure. i love the magazine stands there, so i had to stop by to catch up on my celebrity gossip! if i didn't get lost every time i drove there, i'd probably like to visit LA more often.

Sunday, January 13, 2013


anyone notice a trend here?!
page
1. eva longoria in pucci
2. katherine mcphee in theyskens theory

leggy
3. heidi klum in alexandre vauthier
4. lea michele in elie saab

my best top 3 best dressed:
(aka top three dresses that i'd love to have for myself)
page1
1. kate hudson looked AMAZE in her alexander mcqueen number. she's a total fashion icon of mine and i adore her effortless style.
2. jennifer lopez in zuhair murad. what can i say? she makes a splash EVERYWHERE she goes. she's divalicious and ummm she looks sexy as hell on the red carpet.
3. julianne hough in monique lhuillier. i'm not sure if it's because of mr. seacrest that her style has gotten much better but she looks very well put together for the golden globes. i love her dress and make up!

(FYI - i also tweet banged the golden globes so you can follow me at @joanndoan too!)

SO. i'm loving the leggy trend that i'm seeing on the red carpet. i'm not sure if angelina jolie started the next huge trend but it's very sexy. thigh high slits HELLO!

googling my next dress as we speak,

IMAG0780 IMAG0783 IMAG0781 IMAG0782
wearing:
Bardot fur jacket from Luna B
T-Bar shoe with chains from Zara
on hand: my daily must have - tall non-fat white mocha at 180 degrees with light whip & YSL goldtone ring

i think it's official: i am a coffee addict. it's not just my morning must have anymore. i seriously need it DAILY. this is how i spend my nights... getting dolled up for dinner and late night coffee runs with my girlfriend. it's a wild and crazy lifestyle, i know. it's not the life for everyone, but someone's gotta do it. bore whore to the MAX!

enjoy the breezy weather lovelies... before you know it, fur coats are going back in the closet.

“You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.” ― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

cheers to balancing life in 2013!
