what's with the craze?

You know how those who can't afford proper Chanel are said to be the ones that buy the makeup? Diffusion lines are massive at the moment because they provide a more approachable way of buying into a brand without having to fork out thousands of pounds. Case in point: Yves Saint Laurent rings. They are insanely gorgeous. Big, chunky, raw, a statement-and-a-half, and utterly luxurious but without the outlandish price tag. They retail for $195 which, considering their bags are in the thousands, really isn't that bad. They've been popping up all over the place lately. Jackie was wearing the Arty Ovale ring in coral last time I saw her and coincidentally I happened to run into this girl on the same day rocking the Aco Stone ring in white. I seriously love it and, along with a Canon 550dslr, it has shot to the very top of my wish list. I would go for the Aco Stone ring in teal definitely... how beautiful would it look against my tanned fingers as they flipped through Vogue while I lie on a boat in Sweden rocking my new bikini?! Anyway, must send out a thank you to Jill who stopped this girl in Covent Garden as we walked past her last week. Her shirt came from somewhere in Brick Lane I believe and reminded me of this outfit I saw on Lily Allen at a concert last year. It's a real Chanel t-shirt that Lily's wearing and I was determined to make my own version after I saw it on her. My motivation to do that, and to get a YSL ring, has officially been reignited. It's funny how so many little things come together to start a wild craze...
