Bottega Veneta x Fashion’s Night Out Brick Bag

Of all the bags Tomas Maier selected to offer as an exclusive for shoppers on Fashion’s Night Out this Friday, he could not have made a better choice. I’m loving the Brick replica handbags bag for its simplicity in design yet elegance in stature. Fashioned in sumptuous black leather with subtle interwoven accents along the handles and top side as well as down the main panels, this roomy bag can clearly be the last black day bag you’ll ever need. In support of FNO, Rosario Dawson will be hosting a cocktail party at the Fifth Avenue store and Bottega’s pledged to donate 10% of global sales from the evening to support V-Day and the Movement to End Violence Against Women and Girls.

I’m in New York for Fashion Week (our 8th season covering NYFW!) with my Zanotti shoes in tow (he makes the most comfortable platforms!) and just realized I do not have a louis vuitton speedy single Zanotti bag in my collection.  Since shoes and bags go hand in foot, you’d think it’d be easy for shoe designers to cross over to bags but not everyone is as lucky as Jimmy Choo (and trust me, they took a very long time to get it right).  So I want to be gentle on Zanotti considering how much I love his shoes.  Let’s look at this clutch objectively, it’s a simple (if generic) design with a surprise pop of color via the blue crystal studs.  However, does it look a bit awkward?  I love surprises Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas but feel it should at least tie in somehow to the bag it’s surprising.  My suggestion would have been to put a sprinkling of said blue crystals on the front flap, maybe  in place of the two random gunmetal studs.  That’s just my two cents.  What about you?  Snob or Slob?

Hermès Madison Avenue Leathergoods Floor

With its men’s store nicely situated across the street, Hermès has finally turned its newfound coach crossbody vacant space within its flagship Madison Avenue store into a 2,000-square-foot leather floor to show the breadth of the collection, not to mention just how many products and colors Hermès offers. The new floor has double the selling space of its previously cramped quarters, allowing categories like enamel to breathe thanks to newfound space.

Located on the lower level, the leather floor boasts a special order room outfitted with butter-soft leather-covered walls, a leather banquette with low shelves on either side for resting handbags and fresh flowers arranged daily. Naturally, as with any fine coach totes shopping experience, there are tables and chairs similar to those used at jewelers for conversations between customers and sales associates. Perhaps the pièce de résistance? What was a bag wall that held nine bags now showcases a whopping 100 different styles!Keeping in tune with its ideals of promoting heritage, Hermès created a work area for cheap coach backpacks craftsmen on the lower level that welcomes onlookers to watch while they work.

Celebrate Independence Day with Zanotti style

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?

Whose broad stripes Christian Louboutin Sale and bright starts, thru the perilous fight,

O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in  air,

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Oh, say does that star-spangles banner yet wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

For those of you here in the States celebrating this holiday weekend: HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

LOL, they Christian Louboutin Heels are ridiculously over the top. The description that comes to mind is "pagent shoes". I keep imagining them on a Texas drill team or on the feet of a female grand-marshall at any duly patriotic parade-worthy holiday. And when I look at them the 'Yellow rose of Texas' plays in the background of my mind...they could definitely work for the aspiring Miss Texas in one of the national pageants.

Unless they went for gold Christian Louboutin Pumps stars, I suppose a gold heel might compete with the silver stars. This was such a no-brainer must post for July 4th shoe. It's flamboyance also kind of makes me think of Texas and never doing things halfway if you can be larger than life.

Dsquared2 Skeletal Stilettos, Part 2: Fingerbone Heels

I was originally going to write about the Dsquared2 fall 2010 shoe pre-orders in a single post.  But, I soon realized that  trying to squeeze everything into one Christian Louboutin Shoes Sale article would do a disservice to this year’s two main style silhouettes.

While both yesterday’s spine-heeled shoes and todays finger-bone stilettos are similar in theme, they each deserve their own moment in the spotlight.

Yesterday’s offerings were solid, heavy styles that exude an intriguing combination of power and goth style.

Today’s finger-bone shoes are a more elegant interpretation of the skeletal theme. Slender’ metallic-stiletto heels -  in your choice of a toned-down, silver-heeled, ankle bootie or and evening sandal bedecked with blood-red rhinestones Christian Louboutin Sandals Sale and sparkly gold heel.


Hell yes!  But, I am an avowed lover of statement shoes. When it comes to  the more dream-shoe price ranges, I want, I crave, I need drama.

These Christian Louboutin Short Boots Sale shoes deliver.

And yes, I’ll admit that I’m biased. Halloween has been my favorite holiday since forever.
