Be a Hand-me-down Fashionista

Let’s face it one way or another we have to spend in order to achieve our dream looks. But that does not mean that we have to swipe our credit cards and get drown by debts in the long run. Truth is, you can achieve your dream look without spending too much, how? Simple, visit thrift stores. You may not believe it but even famous personalities do shop at thrift stores so there’s no reason to be ashamed. But as you know, the products in thrift store are not as good as new because practically, they are already used. Fret not, because you could still score the best piece of outfit by being wise and practical. The following are the to-do list you must keep in my mind once you enter thrift store.

Bring your favourite celebrity outfit photo: You have to have a “steal-her-look” photo. This will serve as your reference in order for you to have an easier time in picking up the items. However, being spontaneous is a good thing, so never ever copy the whole reference, make your own modification, you have to set your OWN taste. You wouldn’t like to look like a petty copycat, would you?

Be keen in the items’ details: Again, you have to remember that the items that you are purchasing in a thrift store are already used so do not expect them to look perfectly nice. Be keen in seeing some damages and don’t buy something out of haze that you cannot use eventually because you overlook the damages.

Thrist Store

Bring a budget goal: Challenge yourself! Score a gorgeous look without making your wallet suffer. Bring only the money that you aspire you spend on shopping at thrift store. In that way, you will really become careful and cautious in bagging that perfect piece.

Be Patient: There are piles of items that you will see in a thrift store and sometimes it is really hard to get the items that you want. So be patient in raiding every rack.

Will Rob find love in a hopeless place? Rihanna says you da one

Rihanna making her moves to close Robert Pattinson

     Entertainment gossip websites have been closely following pop star Rihanna as rumors about her attempts of making contact with “Twilight” superstar Robert Pattinson. People close to the singer have confirmed that “RiRi” has met Pattinson several times and thinks that the latter very cute. In those times that the two met, the source said that nothing came out of those meetings. That is because Robert was still attached to his Twilight co-star and now ex-girlfriend, Kristen Stewart. It has been said that stealing somebody else’s man is not something that Rihanna is capable of doing.

     Now we all know that Robert is mending a broken heart after he found out that Kristen has been unfaithful with him. KStew admitted that she have been having an affair with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director, Rupert Sanders. Whether Robert is ready for a new relationship or not, one thing’s for sure—now is the best time to be his friend to comfort him as he nurses his aching heart and crushed ego. And after Rihanna in ‘disturbia’, after ‘rude boy’ Chris Brown got a little too ‘hard’ and turned violent with her. Is there really a chance for them to be together?

     Will the ugly parting of the Twilight stars and Rihanna’s equally nasty break-up with Chris Brown be the beginning of “Rattinson”? Will Robert make moves to make Rihanna his only girl (in the world)? RiRi has recently got Rob’s phone number from a mutual friend and have been trying to comfort him under the care of her umbrella. While Rob thought that someone Punk’d him at first, and he has been resisting her, Rihanna’s comforting message has been on pon de replay. Will Riri really begin to make a move on Rob? Would Robert let Rihanna share with him her umbrella to comfort him? Is it really the time that Rob and Riri finds love in this hopeless place? With the way Robert has been turning her down, it will not be easy for Rihanna.

No slowing down for “mean girl” herself

    Just how Lindsay Lohan can be even more controversial? Well, according to a known entertainment website, the completely messed up 26-year-old trashed a $50,000 a 38-foot vintage trailer. This was no ordinary old trailer though; this was once owned by Elizabeth Taylor herself. Based on reports, Angel Alger, a Taylor fanatic had bought the trailer where Taylor’s romance with Richard Burton began for $50,000 last June

Before the trailer has been sold to Alger, the previous owner had previous contracts that the collector had to honor. One of those contracts is that Alger would allow the trailer to be used for the Lifetime film Liz & Dick that stars Lohan for two days. Alger said that she allowed the use of the trailer for the movie since she was promised that “it would come back in pristine condition and in even better condition than it was at that time”. However, when the trailer was given back to Alger, she found serious damage on the trailer including broken mirrors, cigarette burns, and missing furniture. Estimate for the amount of damage on the vintage trailer amounted to a staggering $100,000.

Alger was definitely unhappy with what happened to her prized possession saying “Only a psychotic and rebellious person or people would steal irreplaceable museum belongings and leave it in this vandalized condition. When asked for comments, Lindsay’s representative Steve Honig said he doesn’t understand how his client, who happens to be a huge fan of Taylor would do such thing. Instead, Honig said that the media should ask the producers about the issue. The management of the famed Hollywood hotel Chateau Marmont said that Lohan is no longer welcome in their hotel for allegedly failing to pay a bill totaling more than $46,000 from her recent stay.

Lohan was at the peak of her career when she started getting tagged in various controversies such as numerous DUI cases, and theft. These always got her in the headlines of Hollywood news and gossip and made her the favorite target of most comedians, using her and the controversies she got involved in with their punch lines.
