Sneakers that are to die for. Yes, I said sneakers.

Posted on by admin in MAIN | Comments Off on Sneakers that are to die for. Yes, I said sneakers.

If any of you know me you will know that I rarely ever, repeat ever, wear sneakers. Unless I have to (seen only at the closest BSC).

But lately designers such as Ruthie Davis, YSL and Marc Jacobs have made even me want to lace up. Sneakers have gone from the flat and athletic blah to revamped, sexified bombshells complete with spikes, studs, suede, bedazzled leather and more. To die for.

Wedge sneakers have recently been trending and for good reason. You get the perfect blend of a casual wedge.

Marc Jacobs and Giuseppe Zanotti do it so right. These more affordable spiked ones are at online retailer Nasty Gal.

My all time favorite shoe designer Ruthie Davis makes a pair of sneakers, seen in the above picture, just for me (or so I like to think). Her bejeweled, spiked, leather high tops are nothing less than perfect and haven’t even hit shelves yet (I stole the picture off her Twitter @RuthieDavis, follow!). YSL also makes a pretty amazing pair of fuchsia ones too that you can get here in Boston at The Tannery. And Giuseppe Zanotti has another perfect pearlized studded pair. I could go on and on and on…

Some things never go out of style. A classic blazer, clean cut white button down, red lips, sky high stilettos (clear, plastic platforms are not included), diamonds and on and on.

While Coco Chanel certainly could not have envisioned this gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim Motorcross Jacket that I’m currently obsessed with, it does work to replace the classic straight-cut blazer that Chanel made oh so chic. Check out some of the other modernized versions of closet staples featuring Burberry, Alexander Wang and DVF.

Refinery29 has six ways to revamp the classic styles to 2012 here.

Wet Haute American Summer.

Posted on by admin in MAIN | Comments Off on Wet Haute American Summer.

Chandon recently released its new American Summer limited edition (available only June 1st through September 1st) champagne bottle that celebrates the upcoming season. According to Chandon’s site “Chandon’s Brut Classic is well known for its citrus spices layered over notes of almond and caramel and makes for a refreshing treat on a hot summer’s day.” Sounds good to us.

Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet was so inspired by the couture bottle that she designed a $352 romper inspired by the bottle (seen above). Stripes are so in this season.
