Fashion line up: Hottest designs and designers.

Clipped from:

Fashion is in.  I wanted to take some time to blog about some of my favourite fashions, from designers like Dolce & GabbanaMiu MiuPatrizia Pepe to labels like AnthropologieArmani ExchangeByblos and even Cynthia Rowley.  This blog post is going to be a curated work of all my favourite designs and what is going to be hot!

To the right is a clip of a lovely Swatch back top from Anthropologie.  The patched chiffan selections on this piece will do nothing but tantilize your skin and the colour sections are to die for.  This piece evokes the colouring styles of the famous Chinese painter Qian Xuan.

This design from Dolce & Gabbana is just the perfect evening dress. Animal prints are back in style with this lovely animal print chiffan dress.  Whether you're on your way to a charity event, the zoo or a tech event, this dress will communicate to everyone around you, "Rawr, I'm a ferocious man killer."  

This piece even comes with a lovely little silk belt and must be accessorized with only the best purse and shoes



And don't you dare forget about the man in your life! This summer weight knit men's top is all the rage in Milan this year.  This semi-sheer sweater has stripes that are in a bold blue.  

All of his friends will know that you dress him well, when they see him show up to work in this fabulous V-neck sweater.  Your man will be the envy of the sports bar, especially when you couple it up with a stylish man-bag.


Clipped from:

 Miuccia's nickname is now synonymous with girly glamour. Miu Miu is a high fashion brand from the Prada fashion house, opened in 1992 and headed by Miuccia Prada. This design makes it obvious that it's the lovechild of Prada.  

Your closet is lonely without a few of these pieces in it.  




Stay tuned for more of Tia Marie's fashion picks!  I hope you like the new blog design and direction. I'd love to hear your comments, so shoot me a tweet: @tia_marie and tell me what fashion tips you have for this coming summer! 

UPDATE: Cooks Source Magazine leaves the web

If you got a chance to read my previous blog post about the Plagiarism issue with Cooks Source Magazine, you'll be pleased to hear that there is a bit of an update in the situation.  

If you're not familiar with the story, click on the clip to the right and read the previous article.  Essentially a magazine plagiarized an article written by a blogger online and published it on their print magazine.  When they were contacted by the original writer who requested an apology, they essentially told her to fuck off but in nicer words.

The interent wasn't quite happy with their response.  Their facebook fan page went under attack and many people were publicly discussing how messed up what they had done and found other articles that they had plagiarized. Well today, Cooks Source Magazine has left the web and finally did what the original writer asked.


Last month an article, “American as Apple Pie — Isn’t,” was placed in error in Cooks Source, without the approval of the writer, Monica Gaudio. We sincerely wish to apologize to her for this error, it was an oversight of a small, overworked staff. We have made a donation at her request, to her chosen institution, the Columbia School of Journalism. In addition, a donation to the Western New England Food Bank, is being made in her name. It should be noted that Monica was given a clear credit for using her article within the publication, and has been paid in the way that she has requested to be paid.


I’m an asian guy?

I love the awesome data engineering that OKCupid does.  Their blog rocks my socks off.  They always draw really interesting data points from their dating site. 

Today they made a blog post in regards to race and gender and likes across the races and genders.  

Looking through the different genders and races, apparently my likes most commonly match with asian men with white male coming in second. 

Of course I’m not saying that this is an absolute proof I’m not very feminine, but I certainly cannot find any common interest with the females of OKcupid (regardless of their race).

YAY! New DragonAge DLC

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Dragon Age.  I have been since I got the chance to do the live broadcast for EA and Bioware demoing Dragon Age for fans.  I’ve had a huge love of this game and have never made my feelings secret about it and any of my involvements.

September 7th there will be a new Dragon Age DLC that will cover what happened to Morrigan after the end of Dragon Age origins. I won’t give away any spoilers, but this just leads me to hope that there will be a DLC that covers Alistair.  Seriously, I’d like another chance to get my swurve on with him… I mean… NEVER MIND END OF BLOG POST!

Like a train wreck, you can’t not watch

Seriously, I hate to make fun of some one directly in my blog and single them out.  However, I stumbled across this guy from  His videos are much like a train wreck, you don’t want to watch but you simply cannot take your eyes off.  I’ve only seen a couple of videos and I have come to the conclusion that either this man is a brilliant troll (and I’ve just been had) or he needs to separate himself from his digital life and seek some group therapy.
