Drool worthy….a Weekend Treat :)

Two things that I could not get enough of today…Dior’s ballerina themed collection from Paris and Red Nina Ricci ankle strapped pumps with jewel details. I am LOVING it.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes…definitely something I would wear during the winter holidays…and the Jewels make them so much more festive.

And this…so beautiful

 

What do you guys think of the tea length skirts? I think thay are a nice alternative to the formal floor length. I think it all looks really refreshing, light and airy. Can’t wait to see more!

Opinions? I’d love to hear them!

Have a great weekend ūüôā

 

Kanye West coming to a store near you!

Anyone remember all of the negative press Kanye received at his last fashion show for the skimpy little knit and fur ensembles he was showing? Not even the¬†modeling industry’s hottest models [i.e. Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, Izabel Goulart to name a few]¬†strutting in his designs could have¬†saved him from the harsh¬†fashion critic, but his shoes were a different story.¬†They were actually pretty well received.

Kanye has been known for his¬†shoe collaboration with Giuseppe Zanotti and¬†seems to be getting even more exposure for his shoe designs as he is rumored to have designed the shoes for DION LEE’s London Debut.

Here are some of Kanye’s designs. What do you think?

So what do you guys think? Will you be purchasing a pair?

 

Oscar Round Up!

The Oscars came and went…and what did yours truly do on Oscar Sunday? I had a HUGE fashion fail. I FELL ASLEEP.
<gasp here>
I know.  To my disapointment I missed the whole thing.  Red Carpet, Awards Ceremony. All of it. Not that this is a valid excuse, but I was still recovering from being sick all week.  
Needless to say I am thankful for all of the internet coverage on the Oscars so I was able to catch up and see the lovely gowns. I was pretty pealsantly suprised, nothing crazy or out of the ordinary, unless you count Sasha Baron Cohen’s act as “The Dictator.”

Now for my picks (not in any particular order):

 My absolute favorite has to be Angelina Jolie, what an improvement from her Golden Globes Dress.
So what do you guys think? I’d love to hear your opinions!

Back with a Bang!

Forgive me for being MIA this week…in short, I have been battling a very unpleasant stomach virus. Non the less, I am back and ready to talk FASHION.

So this morning I was catching myself up on whats been going on in the fashion world since I’ve been basically invalid for the last few days and came across this article that made me giggle. God, I love this woman. If you ever get sick of hearing about her let me know, but¬†don’t¬†say I didn’t warn you,¬†she kills me.

This lady has plans…after fashion, Anna Dello Russo plans on being a…(drum roll please)..SINGER!¬†¬†

Huh? What?? Yes, thats right.

Anna Says, “I want to finish in fashion, become a singer and release a record,” if her singing is as loud as her clothing well then we are in for a treat!

Well I must say I cannot wait to see her bust some of these pretty sweet moves to the sound of her own tunes:

   

Bravo to Ms. Dello Russo for never being boring.

So what do you guys think??

A New Designer Debuts at Fashion Week:

It’s Barbie!–this is totally fulfillng my inner 5 year old’s dreams…

So¬† I thought this was something kind of interesting. The show was appropriately titled the ” Barbie Dream Closet,” where attendees entered a life size Barbie dream house. There were 6 life size barbies¬† (Black Barbie Doll (ca.1980) had on Alexander McQueen and¬†CEO Barbie (ca. 1985) was¬† Dolce & Gabbana¬† and ¬†Original Teenage Fashion Model Barbie (ca. 1959), doning a swimsuit of course). Here are a few pictures I was able to find:

Designer Chris Benz and Director Joe Zee; Check out that shoe closet! (above)

Manolos for all!

So I have some pretty great news to share. Manolo Blahnik is collaborating with J. Crew on a¬†line of “their classic BB style heels, in prints and colorways exclusive to J.Crew.” Figures on¬†prices have not yet been released, but I can only imagine them being more affordable than an original Manolo Blahnik pair of shoes.

So whos excited?

For some reason, I think the Manolo for J. Crew Collection will be better received than the Kobe Levi shoes from yesterdays post…lol

 Let me know what you think!

 

PS.  SOME MORE PHOTOS BELOW:

 

 

 

 

 

The Most Eccentric Shoes You’ve Ever Seen:

Designed by free lance designer Kobi Levi, you are about to view the most interesting shoes EVER. The designer describes his creations as ” a wearable sculpture. It is “alive” with/out the foot/body.”¬†–Which is pretty dead on. The names of the shoes are probably the funniest. I definitely found this interesting/humorous:

–“Double Boots”

–“Blonde Ambition”

-“Chewing Gum Sidewalk”

-“Coffee Diner

“-“Miao” * I almost died with this one. Too much.

-“Slide”

Well I hope you guys enjoyed this as much as I did! Let me know what you think!

¬†If you’d like to read more about Kobi Levi and his creations, more pictures and information can be found on his blog: http://kobilevidesign.blogspot.com/

 
 
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 
 

Look Who it is: ADR is back.

So you guys didn’t think I’d let fashion week go by without a peep about Ms. Dello Russo did you??

So this morning I ran into this little photo and blurb about our acclaimed “FASHION MANIAC”

ps. Anna wore this fabulous feathered YSL ensemble to the Marc Jacobs Show. If you can manage to peel your eyes from the dress/coat..check out those fierce shoes…LOVE THEM. Very Sexy.

And apparently the hat¬†featured on the runway model on the left is next on Ms. Dello Russo’s shopping list. In an interview with Fashionista.com¬†Anna says:

”¬†I loved the collection,‚ÄĚ she told us. ‚ÄúIt was a kind of fantasy, a fairy tale‚Äďlike a Tim Burton movie, which is really good for us to get in a different mood. Rather than being strictly fashion like it used to be in New York it‚Äôs time to dream. Of course, the Stephen Jones hats were fantastic and the buckle on the shoes‚Äďeverything puts you in a fantasy mood.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúSo will we see you in one of those hats?‚ÄĚ we had to ask.

‚ÄúI will, for sure,‚ÄĚ Dello Russo said without hesitation. ‚ÄúThe white one with the pink. I can carry it [off], I think so.‚ÄĚ

She will never get boring. ūüôā
