Accessories Sample Sale: Gryson, Botkier, Jill Stuart..

The “Winter Accessories Sample Sale”
I think that they should have thrown this sale a couple months ago, and instead be throwing a “SPRING” accessory sale.
Even though, this sale is of last seasons stock, I’m sure there’s going to be some spectacular stuff, like a-l-w-a-y-s.
There’s going to be city boots, leather booties, gloves, equestrian caps and [...]

What Say We?... Yay or Nay

Estelle arrives for the Brit Awards 2009 at Earls Court on February 18, 2009 in London, England.

What do we think? I'm on the proverbial fence. While on the one hand I adore the shape of this dress, puffy sleeves and all, on the other I think there may be a little too much "detail" on there. She looks like a christmas tree that was decorated by a bunch of hyperactive toddlers coming off a sugar high. I will let it slide this time. Afterall she is wearing fab heels. YAY!!

Marc Jacobs

Donna Karan

So what did you think of the Marc Jacobs show?

It was great to see that Marc's collection was full of color and optimism, I'm a little surprised that so many collections have been so dour.

So it makes me think, should a designer's collection be a reflection the times or an escape?
