What disturbs you more?

From a recent conversation with a few friends one mentioned being upset that Lady Ga Ga was destroying Hermes Birkin Bags by adding her own signature style to them and I agreed. Though I love the simplicity and elegance of a Hermes B Bag I would like to see what they would look like if they adorned a few with embellishments, as seen in this picture. Obvisously I'm not a fan of the way this one looks but I'm sure if Hermes went to the drawing board whatever they came up with would look more put together than Ga Ga's.

On to my point, what is more disturbing about this picture to you?
1. The destroyed
B Bag
2. The shoes

I say it has to be the shoes.... she is doing her thing, apparently getting around from place to place but they look like a broken ankle just waiting to happen but that's just me ;)

Jocelyns Prom and Visual Beauty

Antonia 'Toya' Carter's Visual Beauty and The Network Firm teamed up together to sponsor a lucky ladies entire prom .... the winner Jocelyn,a high school junior at Cedar Grove, was chosen out of 50 young ladies. They were required to write an essay to tell what they wanted out of life; the criteria was based on academics, community service and their overall ambition after high school. Toya purchased Jocelyn her prom dress, accessories, a white Hummer with matching white rims to ride there in. Tiny's "Nair Bar" also provided her with a manicure and pedicure. While The Network Firm provided other essential items Rikya with "Keep It Natural" did her hair, Tierra did her make up with "Make Up by Tierra" and Joi Pearson with "Joi Pearson Photography" took pictures and will provide her with a keepsake album to remember the occasion.

The overall night was a success and Jocelyn and her family were very moved by the thoughtfulness of Toya's "Visual Beauty" and "The Network Firm." Toya stated, "This is just the beginning!" She thanked Jocelyn for helping us by writing such an awesome essay and for being so giving herself!

The lesson learned: "It's better to give than to receive!"
