Photo Booth Fun

I love this upcoming Chanel ad that was styled by Carine Roitfeld & as always, shot by Karl Lagerfeld.  It’s a bit naughty & lots of fun. 

You can see more here.

When I first saw the Prada fruit prints, I wasn’t buying it.  I thought it was silly & way too quirky.  However, I have to admit that it’s growing on me.  I realized I was fully smitten when the banana manicure made me smile.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Jeanne Lanvin's sketches from 1929
Those who know me know that the idea of having children scare me.  That said, I love the idea of Alber Elbaz re-launching the Lanvin children's line.  While it sounds like a bold move, children's wear has always been a part of the Lanvin history.  Mrs. Lanvin got her start in children's clothing in 1908 & was also known for her mother-daughter looks.  Their logo even features a mother & daughter holding hands.  The collection will debut in a June show & hit Lanvin stores in summer 2012.  Too bad those clothes would bite into mommy’s clothing budget!

Red with Envy

I love redheads & I love dying my own hair red so you can only imagine how envious I am of Karen Elson.  Not only is she a redhead, but she also snagged the super talented Jack White.  So, when I found out she could sing, I was indignant about how unfair life can be!  But then I heard her sing in this video & I couldn’t help, but be tamed by the lovely sound of her voice.

Why Didn't I Buy in Bulk?

My favorite sandals are still my $29 Urban Outfitters fringe sandals.  I got them two summers ago & they are on their last leg.  Is it dumb to re-sole $29 sandals when re-soling them would definitely cost more than the price of the shoe? I just love them though! 

Hot Foot

I also love these flat sandals—also by Miu Miu.  It is so hard to find good flat sandals, but the color & shape of these shoes are stunning & perfect to take me into high summer!  

My New Obsession

This is my new shoe obsession.  I need these Miu Miu heels.  I know they are crazy & I know some would say they are ugly, but I adore them.  I think they would be perfect for summer, with dresses, with jeans & even in the winter with tights.  I can’t wait!

Ch-Ch-Ch-Cherry Bomb

I just finished watching "The Runaways" & just loved Dakota Fanning's wardrobe in the movie.  They described her as part Brigitte Bardot & part David Bowie.  I just love the 70's glam that's just a little roughed up.

How cool is this picture from Jak & Jil blog?  I love the finger armor (my newest obsession) combined with the silver nailpolish.
