With the onset of fall comes cooler weather and many more social occasions. Now through New Years the number of occasions to wear my little black dresses increases dramatically. Dressing for evenings out on the town require a bit of advance planning. This year my LBD du jour is from Alexander Wang. The Alexander Wang Spider lace bandage dress ($775 at Net-a-Porter) has cocktail party style wrapped up with an asymmetric shoulder and bandage style detailing.

The Marc by Marc Jacobs RTW Spring 2010 collections presented most all of the female models wearing gigantic bows on their heads. You’d have to be blind to have missed the neon fuchsia, red and blue swathes of fabric walking down the runway. It was all in tune with the very prevalent ’80s theme. Or perhaps it is an ode to Madonna.
Everyone at Luna Boston loves a good party, and a couple weeks ago was no exception. The Diane von Furstenberg event was one of the biggest we’ve ever had – there was a line around the block to get in before the doors even opened! Amanda and Jennifer started setting up for the event at 9am and didn’t stop until 10 minutes before the event started, when they finally had time to get ready!
Again this fall we are seeing shades of deep blue in beauty trends. Indigo eyeshadow, Navy mascara, and a rerun from 2008, Midnight blue nail color. The most luxurious shades of midnight-blue nail color are Chanel Blue Satin nail color and Dior Poison Blue. To coordinate with my blue-black nail color a blue-hued handbag is in order. I am loving all of the blue handbag options this season it will pair perfectly with black, my go-to color for this season’s dresses and coats.
What a better way to complement your Burberry trench than with a pair of sleek Burberry rain boots? I have a couple pair of Hunter wellie rain boots, the originals made in Scotland. I wear them with skinny jeans and leggings with sweater during the rainy season. I often wish my Hunter wellies were a little more sophisticated and polished. That’s why I love these Burberry rainboots.
The lace up ankle boot is one of our favorite go-to styles for shoes this fall. Think sleek and edgy or casual chic. These the are the modern redux of the granny boot. This fall’s ankle boots take a stance with a higher heel and many fine details such as grommets, buckles and the platform sole for added height. Lace-up ankle boots will look fierce with black leggings, skinny jeans, or even a fitted black pencil skirt at the office.
Three American brothers who have not spoken to each other in a year set off on a train voyage across India with a plan to find themselves and bond with each other — to become brothers again like they used to be. Their “spiritual quest”, however, veers rapidly off-course (due to events involving over-the-counter pain killers, Indian cough syrup, and pepper spray), and they eventually find themselves stranded alone in the middle of the desert with eleven suitcases a printer, and a laminating machine.
I don’t know about you, but when I fall in love with a particular handbag at first sight, it often doesn’t last. I liken it to the crushes I had in Junior High School. Sometimes, when you fall hard and fast, you hit the ground with such force that when you wake up, your face cold from the cement slab, you come to your senses.
Prada IT BAG??…Or Cousin IT bag??!
Apparently being called the next new ‘IT’ bag from Prada, the Prada Fringe Bag is now making its Spring 2007 debut. I normally adore ALL Prada, but this particular style makes me want to run out and get a rabies shot before I touch it. Quite frankly, looking at it gives me hives. After loving and adoring my Prada Gauffre bags, I’m quite shocked at Prada’s blunder with this new ‘IT’ bag.
