YVES SAINT LAURENT
I have to really love a shoe to post on it. I love this Tribute. These colours and textures are perfect for an understated elegance to any day outfit. Whether it be work, meeting, out and about, downtown or uptown. They are sure to garner your feet a desired look or two. The hidden platform will give your feet added height and slender as well as a lengthening effect.
I’d say definetly worth the 795USD price tag at retailer SAKS.
A good showing from Stefano Pilati.
The first of the many resort COOLections… I liked these.
The ones I love get a full-blown post.
Auto-Blog Nepotism…It’s totally new. 🙂
Donna Karan- I love Donna Karan’s classy forty-something year old woman style. It jus says I am accomplished and I am respected. I am classically stylish to the end. It was lovely but it wasn’t very colourful and looked a bit too mature ala the Liz Clairbourne but it certainly wasn’t ICK. I myself could see a few pieces popping up on some young virile celebs who want to appear classy and mature.
Herve Ledger- The label of the Body Conscious Dress. There were quite a many printed dresses and certainly much colour. However the stuff I thought worthy of posting was mainly black, white and cream/nude. It was like I was looking at the same dress over and over. They were lovely prints and certainly many choices, I will admit to that. However there is an option for any young starlet wanting to show off that highly paid for figure.
P.S j’adore le swimsuit.
Anna Sui- She always appeals to the free spirit bohemian in me. I am a huge fan and though I was not overwhelmed. I still loved most of the looks for their wearability and her aesthetic. Anyone who knows me knows I am a dress fiend. I love them until my wardrobe is beyond ridiculously dress heavy. Anyone who knows me also know I am a prints friend and each season I can count on Anna to give me the goods. Here are a few looks from her resort collection modelled by Chanel Iman.
Yves Saint Laurent I loved this it’s not original but it is gorge. I like the garment shapes, style lines, the swimcaps, the colours and the mood it all evokes. It has an amazing retro feel. I DIG THIS. I am not overwhelmed but I am intrigued.

One of the most feminine prominent trends for Spring 2010 was the neutral to pastel palette. Please when you are purchasing your pieces for summer keep this in mind. Here are a few of my fave looks off the runway. If you see something in your favourite store that is skin tone…buy it! If it is white…buy it! A pastel shade….buy it!
It is happening now and it’s lovely.
My favourite look was from Matthew Williamson being the dress connoisseur that I most definitely am…I was always a huge fan the textured skirt and bejewelled bodice for me was just an extra. FEMININE was a trend that carried heavily into the upcoming Autumn season and I hope it is here to stay for it truly recognises and celebrates everything woman.
Another standout is this Celine look. Phoebe Philo, head designer at Celine, is a straight up (no pun intended) genius. Her lines are always clean-cut and minimalist but not in a manly, rigid way. Her cuts are beautifully clean, crisp and curved to compliment a woman. This a complete look that I desire and need in my life.
