Summer 2011 Trend Alert: Wide brim sun hats

Summer 2011 Trend Alert: Wide brim sun hats

Just two weeks ago the temperature in NYC reached the boiling hot benchmark of 103 degrees. While I was able to solve my cats' problem by padding their hangout spots with bags of frozen pees, I myself, seeing how I'm the one with opposable thumbs, had the unsolvable problem of needing to go out into the scorching heat to run errands (you know, like buying food and shoes). Armed with SPF 30 sunscreen and my dependable Ray-Bans, I bravely said goodbye to the A/C and stepped outside.

How do you like the new Prada Swing Sunglasses

How do you like the new Prada Swing Sunglasses

I like the idea behind this limited addition line. WWD reported that the line was inspired by Jazz and that the glasses "meld retro femininity of the Fifties with a Nineties’ minimalism". But all I can see is that annoying Bolle sporty sunglasses I hate so much from the 90s. I have the feeling I'll like the ad campaign much better. It was shot by Steven Meisel and will be featuring a smokey jazz nightclub and models dancing provocatively to the sound of "Fever".

Fall 2010 Haute Couture details

Fall 2010 Haute Couture details

John Galliano created a mesmerizing botanical garden on the runway and the shoes, an integral part of the spectacle, looked like vine tendrils twining around the feet of the models.

Chanel had a wide array of differently colored and embroidered slouchy booties to support the outfits.

In Gaultier's show all the models were wearing a type of turban head piece, some had über chic cigarette mouthpieces (I'm sorry, but smoking IS cool) and rather mundane, albeit stylish, shoes.

The Valentino show went towards a more minimal approach. All the models were wearing kitten heel mules, some paired with leather socks.

But in Armani Privé, the models were perhaps most accessorized. Here we have a vast number of different bags, buttons, belts and pumps. ...

This watch is minimal perfection! I usually don't wear watches because I can never find one I like. But this just might be it!

Valentino Fall 2010 Ad Campaign features my future sunglasses

How amazing are these sunglasses? As far as I'm concerned, they are the best part of campaign!

The campaign features three supermodels – Freja Beha, Monika Jagaciak, and Tati Cotlar. Each campaign image is a composition of two photos - a nude model in one and her dressed in Valentino in second.

Isabella Rossellini’s Handbags for Bvlgari

Isabella Rossellini’s Handbags for Bvlgari

The bags are very Art-Deco. Each has a twist lock made from a different semi precious stone. And they come in 4 different materials. Rossellini tells WWD, “I wanted to combine simplicity, practicality, from my Swedish side, with the warmth and the elegance of Italy – and humor, that’s my personal touch.” Of the snail print on the inner lining she said, “We chose the snail, just because my bag is a little bit like my home.”

Some of the bags are a bit to old for my liking (that traditional Italian elegance is just not my style), but I would definitely love to put my hands on the patent black leather one. Very chic!
