Fashion’s Night Out Was A Hit!

7 Sep

The global fashion party known as fashion’s night out celebrated its fourth year last night. From Los Angeles to New york to Milan fashionistas, retailers and designers came together for the festivities.  Besides shopping and socializing, crowds were treated to fashion shows, performances and parades.  I celebrated in Los Angeles at the Beverly Center and the “lil Melrose” area of West Hollywood and had an absolute blast! Here are some pictures from the night.




Let’s just start by saying my feet were killing me by the end of the night but it was so worth it.  I also keep getting questions about the dress. I was obsessed with this dress when I saw SJP wearing it on the Elle Jan 2011 coverapparently I wasn’t the only one interested as the dress sold out FAST!  I told my favorite Saks girl to keep an eye out for me and sure enough a dress in my size was found about 6 months later!!!!!!!!!  So that’s the story of the dress….


Outfit details:

I had to embrace this white paper wristband, it was my ticket into the nights events, even though it completely clashed with my ensemble.

Draped silk dress, Halston Heritage. Skull box clutch, Alexander McQueen. Patent leather platform pumps, Christian Louboutin. Earrings, Le fashion truck. Bamboo bangles, Gucci. Black faceted jewel cutout cuff, Gojane.


Fashion’s Night Out around the globe


Until next year………..

The New ‘It’ Bag?

28 Aug

Every once in a handbag comes around that represents timeless luxury, a bag that women drool over. This time it’s the Heroine bag by Alexander McQueen.   The feminine, yet sculptured top handled design comes in various leathers and sizes.  Think of it as a stylish satchel meets Doctors bag, perfect for many years of wear.  If you’d like a Heroine bag of your own, buckle up they do come with a hefty four figure price tag, but what ‘it’ bag doesn’t?

Shop the Heroine bag HERE.

Additional thoughts…….. Does this bag have the ‘it’ factor? Absolutely! My favorite part of this bag is the beautiful shape and the flap in front. My least favorite part of this bag….the flap in front…which makes the contents of the bag impossible to access when it’s on your arm.  A bit impractical a la Hermès Birkin, beautiful nonetheless.

Crazy for Clutches (Splurges)

22 Feb

Clutches may be small, but they can make a HUGE impact on your look.  Clutches are my favorite accessory, I’m kinda obsessed actually.  They  transition from day to evening easily and come in a variety of sizes so you don’t have to worry about limited space.  Clutches are a perfect way to experiment with a color or material you would never wear and still feel comfortable.  If you want to try the latest neon trend, start with a clutch. Spikes, studs, animal prints and wild colors  are doable when they’re a clutch.  If you don’t have a clutch, I suggest you get one, I think you’ll be hooked too:) Pink Jason Wu python embossed($895) available at Nordstrom.  Navy Yves Saint Laurent clutch($845) ,Woven Burberry Prorsum clutch with buckle detail($1,295), Fendi fold over clutch in lemon($840), Alexander McQueen skull box clutch($2,295) all available at Saks Fifth Avenue. Orange Hermes clutch($2,500) available at Hermes.com. lavender Balenciaga clutch($1,065) available at Barneys.com

London Fashion Week Hit With Burberry Showers

21 Feb

London fashion week is in full swing and definitely peeked Monday with the blockbuster show presented by Burberry Prorsom .  Christopher Bailey surpassed my expectations with the traditional english theme. There were plenty of riding  jackets, as well as wool and tweed in muted and earthy colors. There was no shortage of feminine detail. Studded gloves, belts and bows were everywhere:)   There were also quite a few different (but totally cute)takes on the trench coat Burberry is famous for.  It was the most entertaining show thus far complete with clear confetti “rain” and a finale of umbrella toting models on the catwalk. I loved this show!!!
