PFW: Viktor & Rolf
Every now and then I try to review a designer and/or collection that I may not have been previously drawn to. For starters, it is always good to expand my knowledge and with that I love sharing news about every collection or designer to you all, so why not? Viktor & Rolf are notorious for their tailoring and this years Fall 2011 RTW collection confirmed that. While most of their pieces were structured and bordered unwearable by the everyday lady, I was impressed by the architecture and structure with this collection as opposed to the colors, patterns, and textures with previous collections I have reviewed. I mean, yes, the only people who can pull off the ruffled high shoulder trench is probably Bryan Boy & Anna Dello Russo, but you can't help but be impressed by the need to shock & awe every season. These designers fight tooth & nail for their creativity to be recognized and while their pieces may not be the most original, they certainly get a thumbs up from me for trying...

Plus.. who wouldn't rock a winter white look or a black & red sheath?



The collection wasn't my favorite but it certainly impressed me enough to write about it... what did you think?? ... ##
PFW: Balenciaga
PFW: Balenciaga
3/7/2011

A giant leap from Spring 2011 RTW, Nicolas Ghesquière stepped away from the masculine/feminine story of this past collection and moved toward feminine story built with florals, paneling, fishnet overlay and ladylike structure. Starting the show with a floral ensemble topped with a knit jacket that had me smiling from ear to ear. The look was different in that not only was it wearable (a vast difference from the Spring wet-look geometric jackets) but also sexy in a subtle way. Strong jackets, elegant patchwork, simple structure and pops of colors was sent down the runway and as I sifted through the images (wishing I was w/ my dear friend Katelyn at the show), I couldn't help but fall in love with Nicolas Ghesquière's work all over again. Perhaps I wouldn't wear the oversized jacket w/ the perfectly tailored slim fit pants, but I sure as heck would rock it with a mini and killer heels! Speaking of heels, this show proved to be impressive in everything from the bags to the shoes; with detailing at every corner. Will we continue to see a more feminine inspired collection from the house of Balenciaga? Only time will tell but for now I am happy with what we have... especially if what we have is hot pink w/ fishnet overlay!!


Limelight on: Barney's New Shoe Arrivals


Every morning I shift through my emails and post/tweet/blog about all the sales, new arrivals and happenings of the retail world. Mostly I focus on the sales, discount and steals I can find for our followers but occasionally I take a break from the markdown world and focus on the full price, high end pieces that a girl can lust after. Today I stumbled upon the new shoe arrivals at Barney's...
A girl can dream can't she?
Lusting after Louboutin...
 
After being thankful for the wonderful friends & family (& fabulous limettes) in my life I decided to flip the switch back to the stylish world of fashion & all that I have to be thankful for in my closet!  After all... where would we be without the DVF's & Louboutin's of the world?

Just a small post about my absolute love for Louboutin & the amazing holiday pumps I have been lusting after..

Anyone have an extra few thousand they want to gift to me in the form of these masterpieces???
