FANS OF THE LATE BELOVED, FASHION DESIGNER KATE SPADE, RUSH TO BUY OUT HER CURRENT ACCESSORIES COLLECTION, "FRANCES VALENTINE" ON NORDSTROM.COM - SOLD OUT IN MINUTES...

Uber successful fashion designer, Kate Spade, reportedly committed suicide this morning at age, 55.  Spade's Housekeeper apparently found Spade hanging by a scarf tied to the doorknob of her bedroom, with a note by her side.  Katherine Noel Frances Valentine Bresnahan is survived by her husband and business partner, Andy Spade and 13 year old daughter, Bea Spade.  

As soon as the horrible news made headlines this morning, fans of Spade immediately hit the internet and snatched up her latest fashion collection, "Frances Valentine."  FrancesValentine.com was so busy the site was shut down.  Nordstrom.com carries the online collection and every piece sold out in minutes.  

In 2016, Spade legally changed her name to "Frances Valentine" to help support her latest business venture.  It is surreal to watch this WSJ interview where Spade explains why she chose to change her name and shared, "I didn't want to confuse the customer with my name."  Spade went onto reveal how getting back into the fashion business after a hiatus to raise her daughter, was not easy, "I forget how hard it was."  

Spade's alleged suicide is a tragic reminder that despite success, fame and fortune anyone can suffer from depression and mental health issues.  WE all need to work towards making it easier for anyone suffering to get help and not feel alone.  The time is now to get rid of the negative stigma on mental health issues and make it easier for anyone to access the necessary care and resources to live a productive life.  

NAMI is a fantastic resource for loved ones in need or anyone suffering from anxiety, depression and mental illness.  

USA Today created a memorable look back at the fashion icon, mother and wife, Kate Spade.  RIP.

 Tea Forte Green Tea Assortment Rejuvenation Gift Set

Tea Forte Green Tea Assortment Rejuvenation Gift Set

Afternoon Tea in England is no joke.  It is a tradition that dates back to 1840.  Introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford. The Duchess would become hungry around four o'clock in the afternoon.  The evening meal in her household was served fashionably late at eight o'clock, thus leaving a long period of time between lunch and dinner.  In 2016, time is a luxury so sipping tea anytime of the day is a soothing, calming invigorating experience.  Taking time for tea is taking time for me.  Preparing the perfect cup of tea is an art-form.  Tea Forte has mastered the art of making tea extraordinary, soothing and the best part?  Simple!  The Tea Forte Rejuvenation Gift Set is a perfect pick for Mom to create a Zen moment anywhere she pleases.  The cup provides endless solo soothing moments.  Our favorite flavor is the Jasmine Green Tea.  Pure heaven!

Sherpa Doggie Onesie By Ugg

 

Baby it's COLD outside! 

Post holiday season and we are a few days into the new year, 2018.  

This year the Spring Equinox is on March 20th.  We are barely mid-way through winter.  Some of us still have to endure another 77 days of record breaking cold temps and snow!  Savvy shoppers know right NOW is the perfect time of year to take advantage of some mid-winter season sales on just about everything!  At the moment, we here at THE WANNA can't get enough of that warm and cozy feeling all day long.  Thats why we put together a list of mid-winter must haves that will have you and your fur kids, covered in cozy sherpa from the second you wake-up till the moment you slip into bed.  Sherpa, fleece, shearling, it's all the same to us!  Soft, warm and cozy is the main goal.  Here are some warm and cozy must haves that you wouldn't necessarily expect to be lined in sherpa and they are all absolutely worth investing in right now!  Stay warm and happy hunting! 

THE WANNA XO

 "Soft and Cozy" Plush Sheet Set at HSN.com

"Soft and Cozy" Plush Sheet Set at HSN.com

 

SHERPA SHEET SET -  Get your priorities straight people.  If you can only afford one item on this list, start with a pair of these "SOFT and COZY" brand of life altering bed sheets.  The right sheets can literally change your life.  We all need to sleep and when it's freezing outside there is nothing better than slipping into a cloud of sherpa!  We personally tested out a ton of brands.  The consensus is that they all attract static cling.  So, keep a can of "Static Guard" around this time of year.  The higher priced sets maybe better tailored and slightly thicker but,  any price point on plush sheets and you can't go wrong  HSN sells a brand called "SOFT AND COZY" and the name truly speaks for itself. Splurge away.  You won't regret it!  

 

 VCNY Velvet and Sherpa Comforter Set

VCNY Velvet and Sherpa Comforter Set

 

SHERPA COMFORTER SET - VCNY is known for their well made yet moderately priced bedding sets.  We LOVE the velvet and sherpa / fleece lined reversible comforter set in a slew of bejeweled colors to go with any decor.  Velvet on one side and soft cozy sherpa on the other!  Sherpa-riffic!

SHEARLING UGG SLIPPERS.jpg

SHERPA BOOTIES -  Yes, Ugg is the original of everything shearling and sherpa lined.  So, naturally we would suggest the UGG CLASSIC BOOT when it comes to keeping your tootsies warm and cozy outside.  When you are inside (home or office) the sherpa obsession continues with these sherpa lined slippers from Ugg.  No socks required!  

 

 Ugg Sherpa Dog Booties 

Ugg Sherpa Dog Booties

SHERPA HOODIE - Not all sherpa hoodies are created equal.  This Free People "Fluffy Dolman Jacket" is like slipping into a cloud of cozy!  Love the sherpa style, neutral colors and the fact that you can layer this under anything.  Splurge worthy and a big hit this winter season!  

 

 J.Crew "Teddy Coat in Plush Fleece" 

J.Crew "Teddy Coat in Plush Fleece" 

SHERPA COAT -  J.Crew is the master of cashmere but, this season they also re-defined sherpa.  The infamous "Teddy Coat" gets a sophisticated makeover from J.Crew this season.  We LOVE the "Plush Fleece" in the "Deep Peri" hue but, the version in black is forever classic.  Talk about huggable for hours and hours.

 

 

 

 Hue Fleece Lined Leggings

SHERPA CROWN CAP.jpg

SHERPA HAT  - CROWN CAP based in Canada is one of our favorite brands for cold weather accessories.  Their array of impeccably made assorted fur hats are beautiful yet, also practical.  No joke (sorry PETA) but, when it's -10 degrees outside, fur gets the job done.   This pick from CC is vintage leather and lined in sherpa, super stylish and moderately priced so if you leave it in a cab or lose it at the bar, it's not the end of the world...Well maybe.

 

sherpa rug.jpg

SHEARLING RUG - When your feet aren't in wrapped in sherpa sheets, slippers or boots any sherpa rug is a great stepping stone to the next warm and cozy destination.  We love this faux - fur version by Mercury Row, on sale at Wayfair.com, which is affordable and machine washable.  Sherpa heaven.

 

SHERPA THROW - Thanks to CARSTENS  your new fav snuggle buddy comes in several colors and styles.  Think Aspen meets a log cabin, moose tracks, bears and pine trees overlooking a tranquil snowy sunset surrounded by sherpa.  The best part is this baby travels.  From the sofa, office, plane to the car, you're covered in stylish sherpa some styles under $25 bucks!

NORDSTROM DROPS IVANKA TRUMP'S BRAND AMID #GRABYOURWALLET BOYCOTT

On Thursday, Nordstrom officially dropped Ivanka Trump brand’s clothing and accessories from their stores and website.  Nordstrom said the reason for cutting ties with Trump was due to poor sales of the brand’s products.  Nordstrom released a statement: “We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on performance.  We’ve got thousands of brands – more than 2,000 offered on the site alone.  Reviewing their merit and making edits is part of the regular rhythm of our business.  Each year we cut about 10 percent and refresh our assortment with about the same amount.  In this case, based on the brand’s performance we’ve decided not to buy it for this season.”

Nordstrom’s decision comes amid the #GrabYourWallet movement.  The movement, named after Donald Trump’s infamous “Grab them by the p***y” comment, encourages people to boycott businesses and brands that are affiliated with the Trump family.  The group, started by Shannon Coulter and Sue Atencio, published a website dedicated to the boycott.  The website’s “What We're About” section says: “#GrabYourWallet boycott has grown into a movement and central resource for the flexing of consumer power in favor of a more respectful and inclusive society.”

The website details which companies people should boycott and which companies have been dropped from the boycott after they stopped selling Trump products.  The companies that have since ended business with Trump products include: Uber, RueLaLa, Bellacor, Shoes.com, Jenny Craig and now, Nordstrom.

On Twitter, Nordstrom insisted it was “not a political decision”:

CAN YOU GUESS WHAT BODY PART BEYONCE, KIM AND OTHER CELEBS ARE OBSESSED WITH THIS SEASON ON THE RED CARPET?

Caroline Slusarczyk

WHO HAS THE HOTTEST WENIS IN HOLLYWOOD?

About half the population in the world, has a penis...

But, did you know, everyone has a wenis?  Two, in fact!

This season on the red carpet, celebrities have become obsessed with their wenis'!  Just ask any red carpet starlet, since they all seem to showcase their wenis any chance they get!  

If you are wondering, "What the heck is a wenis?"  You're not alone.  One out of two folks are clueless...

 Redbubble.com

Redbubble.com

A wenis is similar to a penis, in that people can compare the different sizes and shapes of their wenis'.

A wenis is a real part of the body, we all have it!  It's that sometimes unsightly rough, droopy, chappy, discolored layers of loose skin that encases your elbows.

It should be noted that wenis has no official definition or spelling, but there has been a petition to make "wenis" an official word in the Dictionary.

Ever since Beyonce, K-Dash and T-Swift have been flaunting their buffed, bleached and polished wenis' in Hollywood, the latest global trend on the red carpet is the perfect wenis!

 Red Carpet Wenis'

Red Carpet Wenis'

This season, even more than hair or makeup, the wenis is the most fashionable body part celebs are showcasing on the carpet!

While most of us non-celebs may not even think about caring for our wenis', those famous starlets are doing whatever it takes to whip their wenis' into shape!  

If you wanna A-list wenis, it will cost ya...

From a personal trainer, bleaching, exfoliation, paraffin treatments to those more serious cases of wenis reduction, it takes a village to keep your wenis looking tight, vibrant and healthy!  

That's why THE WANNA has curated a list of celebs with some of the best wenis' in the biz!

Don't ever call Kim Kardashian stupid!  This woman is brilliant.

 

First, Kim has made the Kardashian name mainstream on a global platform.  Now, the original K Dash is essentially producing her own reality show everywhere she goes with the help of Snapchat.

 

Just this past weekend, Kim hosted an invite only Revolve event in Water Mill, Hamptons and documented her perspective along the way via Snapchat!  Just in case you don't know, Revolve is an online-only designer boutique beloved by the celebrity jet-set.  Several other famous faces came out to support Revolve, including: Jamie Chung, Iman Chanel and Hailey Baldwin but, Kim was the only Kardashian in the house!

The Forbes magazine cover star, (#42 of 100 highest paid celebrities in the world) probably just helped raise the price of Snapchat stock over the weekend thanks to her series of Hamptons chats!  Kim used the photo/video sharing phone app to show her millions of fans, what it's like to experience the Hamptons, in true Kim K style!  The snaps were all narrated by Kim.  At times, she even talked directly to the camera and made each snap extra personalized for her fans... 

 

Kim kicked off her Hamptons snaps on a private jet.  The reality queen snapped a quick video in-flight of some last minute make up touches, just before the jet landed out east.  As Kim and friends descended upon the Revolve mansion, she snapped footage of the grounds and front entrance.  If Kim couldn't capture the moment, she made sure someone was shooting.  (That must be a fun gig!)  At one point KK posed in front of the giant Revolve signage.  As Kim hosted the event, she took the time to give fans a real behind the scenes view of her experience!  No surprise Ms. Kim had several wardrobe changes and each look came directly from revolve.com!   

 

If you missed out on the Revolve party festivities with Kim K, have no fear, The WANNA has the play by play and the entire collection of Snapchat videos from Revolve listed below!

That would be thanks to world famous almost three year old and a member of the Royal Family of the UK,  Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge who was recently photographed wearing the robe while meeting President Obama.  As soon as the photograph made international headlines, so did the robe!

The personalized robe was a gift from MY1STYEARS.COM!  MFY is a luxury baby clothing boutique, online that specializes in unique and chic personalized baby clothing and home items, co-founded by Daniel Price and Jonny Sitton!  

In an exclusive interview with THE WANNA Price told us MFY gifted the robe to both Prince George and Princess Charlotte but, was shocked when he found out Price George wore the robe and was photographed while meeting President Obama!

Price said, "It was unbelievable!  We couldn't have had anything better happen to us!"

 

Prince George is not the first time MY1STYEARS has created personalized gifts for the rich and famous.   Price and company created a personalized hamper for Sir Elton John and David Furnish's son, which included a blanket embroidered with the slogan: Zachary - how wonderful life is now you're in the world.  

According to Price, Prince George's wardrobe choice instantly made the robe sell out online in 7 minutes!   If you want to treat your Prince or Princess like a Royal, you can logo into MY1STYEARS.COM and pre-order the exact same personalized robe that Prince George wore for 27 pounds or approximately $40 dollars.  Price said, "If you pre-order the robe now, you'll have it in three weeks!"

The Best Celebrity Baby Halloween Costumes

Gina Giordan

Halloween is probably the most fun of all holidays.  For kids it means candy and staying up late, and for parents it doesn’t just mean getting to dress up but also getting your kids to dress up!  If you’re looking for some last minute ideas, we’ve made a list of the best celebrity baby costumes so you can be inspired!

Go for an icon like Blue Ivy who dressed to thrill.

Or Disney princesses are always a hit.  North West and her cousin Penelope Disick are both going “Frozen” this year

But if you don’t want to be so mainstream you can go the Neil Patrick Harris route and let the kids dress up as what they want.

Last year North West got some inspiration from nature and went for a skunk costume!

Something JWoww from Jersey Shore also did when she dressed her baby Melainia as a bumblebee

nd of course superheroes are always in vogue.  They were the choice of Mariah Carey’s kids Moroccan and Monroe Cannon last year.
