Shoe Patrol – Parking Spots For Women Only

Gangham Station - Seoul, South Korea

Gangham Station - Seoul, South Korea

Seoul, South Korea is creating “high-heel friendly” parking spaces for women drivers in the city. I.love.this.idea. The city has already painted 4,969 pink parking spaces (yes, pink) and plans to paint thousands more private and public parking spaces to be women, and high-heel friendly. The idea came about so that women wouldn’t have to walk far from their cars to the mall entrance or wherever their feet take them. The parking space project comes from South Korea’s Women Friendly Seoul Project; the city is notoriously known for being “macho” and wants to include women in their thriving city standards. In a way I could see how this could be offensive to women and make you go hm? But on the other hand, anyone that knows me knows I’m kind of lazy (lol). So I would definitely love my very own pink parking space right in the front Tyson’s (my favorite mall) so I can walk my 6.5 size foot right on in the front entrance in a matter of seconds. Sounds like a plan to me. What do you guys think?

Rodarte for Target

Basically everyday I read fashion blogs and try to find fashion news that’s interesting and informative for myself and so that I can post here. But it seems everyday I’m BORED by fashion because all they ever talk about is the recession or something else depressing. But when I read this fantastic news this morning I was very excited!

I know a lot of my friends and family live by Target because they have really cute clothes for good prices. Well, Target is stepping it up another notch and is featuring a line from Rodarte, a very cute, very expensive designer that features four figure tags.  A leather bomber jacket is $3,450, a hand knit skirt will cost you $2,185 and leather cut out thigh-highs are $920! But don’t worry you won’t be paying those prices; Rodarte’s line at Target will be a part of the Go International chain and will consist of 55-pieces, all prices ranging from $9.99 for knee highs to $79.99 for a leopard print  jacket. 

The line will hit stores this December and will run thru February. Perfect timing for the holidays and holiday parties (Rodarte is known for it’s evening clothes so it goes hand in hand). I’m very excited to see the line come out and how sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy (the designers behind Rodarte) use their knack for detail and translate it to the Go International Chain. Damn I love Target.

Sex & The City Needs Extras!

sex-and-the-city

So everyone who knows me knows that Sex & the City is one of my favorite movies (and shows) of all time! I was one of those losers who waited in line loooooong before the movie started, I dressed up like I was going to the Emmy’s, and forced my (straight) guy friends to go see it haha. And, to know surprise of mine, the movie was everything I needed it to be: funny, indulging, sexy, everything I ever expected.

So how freaking happy do you think I was when I found out that there was going to be a SATC sequel coming out (supposedly) next year. I’m not exactly sure what they are going to extend on? (Carrie having a baby? Samantha finding a new boo? New York legalizing gay marriage so Stanford can get hitched?) I don’t know but I’m excited! 

Now what makes me even happier, and should make some of you even more excited, is that anyone can have a chance to actually BE in the upcoming movie! The crew is looking for extras to be “models, celebrity types, socialites, clubgoers, gays and lesbians, international types (Middle Eastern, Arabic, Asian, European, British) and professional soccer players.” The open call is taking place in NYC on Tuesday August 4th at Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street between 6th and 7th Aves). Screen Actors Guild members are welcome from 10am-12:30pm. Everyone else roll out from 1:30pm-4pm. If you can’t make the open call, e-mail a recent picture and contact info to sexandthecity2@gwcnyc.com.

Good luck everyone and get excited!
