Spotted Kim K: on August 28th Barney’s Babe

Out following a morning workout, Kim Kardashian treated herself to some retail therapy on Friday afternoon in Los Angeles, CA.

The reality TV starlet looked fresh faced and bright eyed as she exited the shop dressed in blue leggings, and a silver and white striped off-the-shoulder top.

Sticking to her strict workout schedule, Kim tweeted, “Just worked out! Ate healthy Body Factory shake, took Quick Trim Extreme Burn before workout 2 boost my energy! I feel so good now!”

And in related news, Ms Kardashian recently released a fitness DVD series called “Fit in Your Jeans by Friday,” credits exercising 3-5 times a week for her toned physique.

Spritzing With the Stars

It's not every day a Victoria's Secret Angel and two reality superstars help you determine your signature scent. But yesterday, lucky Angelenos were treated to some one-on-one time with Dancing with the Stars' Melissa Rycroft, supermodel Miranda Kerr and our very own Guiliana Rancic at the Victoria's Secret launch of the new Dream Angels Heavenly Enchanted collection at the Grove. It sure beats a salesperson spritzing perfume on a stick of paper!

Later that evening, Guiliana had a screening party for her Style show, Guiliana & Bill—which just got picked up for its second season! If you didn't catch the ep, check out this clip, which features Bill's wifey wearing a pink-tastic construction outfit. No kidding.

Kim K's Blog: Teaming up with Lighthouse Beauty

As you guys all know, I am launching my own perfume and I wanted to update you all on the progress. I'm working with Lighthouse Beauty to make it absolutely perfect and they have been amazing throughout the whole process. I asked you guys to help me choose the color for the accents on the fragrance bottle and although the dark pink won in the poll, sooo many of your responses on my Facebook and Twitter said that you loved the light pink and I agreed, so I have gone for the light pink!

I can't wait for you guys to see and smell the final thing!!

Handbag ~ Pick of the Day: Marc Jacobs Iggy Shoulder Bag

Now this is a surprise. A fall bag utterly devoid of studs? But it's true. The only hint of rocker on this Marc Jacobs Iggy Shoulder Bag is the fairly sedate chain-link strap. But that's not the reason I was attracted to this bag, which, I admit, is an all-or-nothing bag, a love-it or hate-it bag.

No, I like it for the unique purple and teal color, which is heightened by the quilted python design. I mostly like the purple color because I am a massive fan of purple handbags. I also really like when I see brightly-colored bags, because so often bags are in darker colors- brights simply draw your eye to the bag. Plus, isn't that tiny lock on the front just adorable?

The only complaint I have (about the bag, not the lock) is the length of the chain strap. It's so short that it seems out of proportion considering the size of the bag. If only it had a little more length, then one would be able to sling it comfortably over the shoulder. It seems to me that it's a little to short of a strap to do that¦ unless if the bag slouches sufficiently. One can hope! Buy through Saks for $1,295.

D.S Pick of the Day: Barbara Bui Notched Platform Pumps

I love the platform of the shoe, along with the notched design and the sculpture of the heel. Everything works together to create an amazing architectural pump that is refined and a real classic. I enjoy how there is only one notch, and the metal heel against the suede. These pumps have an almost futuristic look. I cannot wait to wear these with some ripped skinny jeans and a tank top for day to night affairs. Some silver bangles will complete the look.
