Shopping Bag: Tip Top

leave a comment »

For my second edition of my shopping bag, I decided to pick two tops perfect for fall.  They are two completely polar items but I like placing diversity and opposition hand in hand. 

I picture the Elizabeth and James printed blouse tucked in a cream trouser for a Margaux Hemingway look paired with a loose up-do, tan booties and the Fendi’s tan Classico bag.  Oh what a wonderful world! 

The Topshop knitted cropped sweater is fabulous for layering, a key fall dressing technique.  Layering is a great way to keep warm and add personality to your outfit.  Imagine a light grey long-sleeved tee, camel leggings, brown riding boots, a camel scarf, and a light grey large YSL Muse Two bag.  As Rachel Zoe would say, mah-jor!

Giovanna Battaglia.  The name is enough for the fashion blogging world.  You’ll find her in every fashion blog and I had to be included.  The Italian former Dolce & Gabanna model is now a fashion editor at L’Uomo Vogue (Italian Men’s Vogue).  She is even dating Carine Roitfeld’s son Vladmir.  But what is most important of all, her sense of style.  She somehow looks chic, classic, trendy and unique always and all at once.  I love this colorblock outfit because it is summery, girly and at the same time very professional chic.  

 

She is simply a fashion icon.  Garance Doré, one of my favorite bloggers, wisely said ” It’s just that Giovanna can wear whatever she wants and she still stays Giovanna. Always, and never the same, with her hair down or up, in a parka or evening gown, never a fault in her taste, she is the incarnation of the famous adage that we are all so tired of hearing, mostly just because it’s true: Fashion comes and goes. Style stays.” – Garance Dorè

 

For sure you’ll see more of Giovanna to come. BE INSPIRED!

Fashion and Football

with one comment

In the spirit of the FIFA World Cup 2010, I had to post this picture.  Where it came from, I can’t recall but the fact that fashion and football can be put in one sentence and then add Karl Lagerfeld, it can’t get more exciting than that!

Look of the Week: Hung on Hanneli

leave a comment »

This week I decided to feature Hanneli Mustaparta, a model, MTV VJ and fashion blogger, who hailed the fashion world from Norway.  I came across the tall beautiful Norwegian while reading the Vogue bloggers feature and that is when my obsession with her blog began.  

Since the Coachella Festival was held this past week and many cool vintage outfits take over the blogosphere, I chose to pick my favorite Coachella look. Hanneli’s look for the festival was the definition of spring fab yet somehow working well with the “hippie” look of the festival fans.  Here, Hanneli is wearing Catherine Hammel shorts, Nina Jarebrink Shoes, Selima shades and vintage Venice tourist scarf.  I also found the second picture, on Style.com, where the model is sporting almost the exact same attire, but instead of a cashmere sweater an American Apparel tank top and she switched her Nina Jarebrink bag for a Mulberry.  I love how the outfit is all cream’s yet the textures and shapes add style.  Be inspired.

Ps.  I decided to add this picture as well, another Coachella attendee that I thought was pretty cool.  I just couldn’t resist to keep it to just one!  I love the Catherine Hepburn/Brigitte Bardot look she is going for.  AWESOME VINTAGE ROMPER!

My Favorite Spring/Summer Bags

leave a comment »

While I have to admit that I am much for of a shoe girl than a bag girl, the shoes this spring are way too bulky for my liking.  So I decided to share with the bag ladies my favorite spring/summer bags. 

My absolute favorite bag, created by none other than Derek Lam, is original yet versatile.  It can be carried on your arm, your shoulder, or across the body.  At the same time, because of the cream and chestnut brown base, it can be worn with the latest spring trends of military, neutrals, and blushes. 

The Celine Boxy tote took over fall fashion week carried by leading fashion magazine editors.  With time, it has come to be one of my favorite new bags, simply because it is different.  We haven’t seen this shape and size for a while.  Celine also created an amazing box across the body bag in a fabulous midnight blue, so props to Phoebe Philo. 

The Miu Miu cream deerskin tote is a perfect spring classic, only if you can keep it clean.  If you can’t, and prefer black, then I would suggest the Mulberry Alexa which is very similar in style. 

For evening bags, I suggest the Judith Leiber clam shell clutch and the Alexander McQueen python clutch.  The clam shell clutch is perfect for a destination wedding while the McQueen clutch is more unique for a fashionable night out. 

Finally, the lust over bag, the craze of bloggers across the world, the Proenza Schouler PS1.  You can find it in different shapes and sizes, but my favorite is the large camel crocodile bag.  All I can say to myself though is, dream on.  Maybe one day!
