A few friends that use the web for dating told me about a site that sounded interesting. It’s called Weopia and works with any dating site so you can get to know someone better. It’s supposed to help you see if there is any chemistry and help you decide if you want to meet them first by using virtual dating. Yup, kinda wild isn’t it?
It seems kinda cool since you meet in a 3D world. I know of similar virtual world sites like this but Weopia is made specifically for daters, with ‘tools’ and stuff to make if go smoother when you meet. I watched my friend Patricia use it and can honestly say this could help.
The part I found interesting is that the site mentions research suggesting;
People who go on virtual dates first tend to like each other more when they meet and are two times more likely to have a second date
I only tried dating via the web a few times before and could see this working coz you don’t really get to know someone from messaging at those sites. Note that you invite someone to Weopia that you met at the dating site you use. Hopefully someone reading finds it helpful!
Inspired by the famous Christian Louboutin’s infamous red sole, the “Louboutin Manicure” was developed by Charles Worthington salons in London.
After applying the top of the nail with the clients’ color of choice, a bright red creme is applied to the underside. The effect mimics the most common Christian Louboutin heels, all of which have black leather and scarlet soles. The only down side (besides the idea of black nails) is you need to have long nails.
There’s always the option of a nude nail polish on top and red on the bottom.
Paris fashion week shoes have some “interesting” styles where Alexander McQueen collaborated with Lady Gaga and some look like Tim Burton creations! And I’m sure you’ve already read about what Rhianna is wearing in Paris…
And a designer shoe hire service called Cinderella Me just launched.
Reminds me of the handbag service in Sex in the City that Jennifer Hudson’s character used.
Look at Suri! She’s growing up fast. It seems like just yesterday that Katie Holmes was sporting a baby bump. Even though she is only three years old Little Miss Cruise is ready for an afternoon on the town with her bright pink lipstick and pint-sized kitten heels.
The (mostly male) Trade Union Congress states the stiletto is demeaning to women. If we thought so, we’d let you know about it. But why are you sitting around discussing women’s shoes? Is this really the best use of your time?
Apprentice winner Michelle Dewberry also thinks its ridiculous and commented
“…these union officials should be spending their time dealing with more important issues. Heels are sexy, they boost your confidence and they are empowering to women.”
There was an interesting addition to Beyonce’s T-strap Dior shoes at the BET awards in Los Angeles. I know its hard to look past the dress, but try. Mizz Knowles platform heels have a beaded accessory on the heel, similar to what you might see on an ankle strap of some sandals.
Here’s a close up so you can get a better look at her heels;
I’m not sure how I feel about this look. I’m kind of on the fence on this, but hope to see more if this, if its done right. Probably in a minimalist way, but I’d have to see to judge. I thought I had already posted this but it appears I was wrong, and for that I apologize!
And another shot of Beyonce’s high heels from the side as she works the red carpet;
I would love to know what you think of this – haute or not?
