Aahh – Choo…………..Bless you!!

Jimmy Choo stays right on track!

I love Jimmy Choo handbags. While other high-end designers find it preferable to try out different colors and styles to entice us, Jimmy Choo always goes forward and never sways from their basic style. A bit more conservative and always with quality workmanship and leather. I, personally, have the Ramona and absolutely adore it.

Join me in jumping on the Choo Choo fashion train………….

COLOR BLOCK

Do you know what color blocks are?

Color block is exactly what it sounds like. They are fashions with “blocks” of color.

I am particularly fond of this style.

Keep your eyes out for this style of fashion because it will be showing up this Spring in clothing, handbags, shoes and accessories.

Take a look!

BOLD is BEAUTIFUL!

I can’t believe the bold, beautiful colors that I am seeing offered by the top designers. They are absolutely gorgeous and just “out there”!

These wonderful bags demand attention and what attention you are bound to get while wearing these lovely creations.

Yes Ladies, Bold is definitely Beautiful these days.

I consider myself somewhat of a conservative, but I can’t help but adore the absolutely lovely colors that the designers are offering us this spring.

The Exotic Bags

Ladies and Gents, these are the big boys. The Power Hitters. The Big Buck Bags!

When you own a couple of these, you know you’ve made the big time.

Do I like them? No, not really.

Personally I prefer a high quality leather bag, but these seem to be part of a status symbol that tells everyone that you have succeeded in life, that you have “made it”.

I introduce you to “The Exotics”!

It seems that as well as the ostrich, the reptilian creatures are the sign of the elite.

I’m sorry, but this material just creeps me out!

White Now!

What better way to show off that beautiful golden tan than in the color white?

White now, white not?

You don’t have to be a bride to wear white.

When you go out during the daytime and a little black dress won’t do……GO WHITE!

Donna Karan and Yves Saint Laurent

White is clean, crisp and very feminine.

Celebrities love Monique Lhuillier dresses!

I recognized that many stars choose to wear Monique Lhuillier dresses and therefore we sometimes see the same dress on two different celebs. 

Here are Rebecca Gayheart and Eva Longoria wearing the same white dress designed by her. On whom do you prefer it?

Rebecca Gayheart VS Eva Longoria

I must say this time it’s extremely hard to say, since both ladies look fab.

Basically it is a simple white dress but the sleeves and the belt makes it something special and chic. Both ladies combined it with some simple black heels and not too big jewerly.

 -

The next dress is white as well but long. This Grecian inspired dress can be either worn with those thin straps (as seen on Shania Twain) or without like Hayden Panettiere wears it. The small train makes it very glamorous.

Hayden vs. Shania

-

The following dress is worn by Kelly Clarkson and Kate Walsh.

Like the one before it’s also in the Grecian style but short. Between those two ladies I prefer it on Kate since I love the hairdo and her tan. Also I’m not a fan of Kelly’s shoes.

Kelly vs. Kate

How do you like Monique Lhuillier dresses?

Which of those celebs wear them better?

What’s your opinion?

With Spring, comes Color!!

Aahh, Spring is in the air, soon. Prada’s new Runway Collection reminds us of the upcoming season with it’s bold and refreshing colors. It’s time to put away our neutral Fall colored bags and start gearing up for the bold and beautiful colors that Spring brings upon us all!

I find it particularly interesting that the new colors seem to lean towards the purples, teals, pinks and fuschia. Colors that are bold and bright seem to be the way that Prada has decided to bring in the season. Check out the 2008 Runway handbags by Prada.

NEW MIU MIU FOR ME AND YOU!!

Miu Miu has done it again!!

For a while I was a bit worried about the drab styles that Miu Miu was producing. After the Matelasse Coffer and the Bow Satchel, it seemed that Miu Miu had run out of any more creative and/or stylish ideas.

Until now! I am just loving the 2008 line of Miu Miu handbags. The colors are magnificent and the styles are “to die for” gorgeous. Take a look at the new Miu Miu line of handbags.

PUMP IT UP!!

Hi Ladies and Gents!

I thought it might be fun to see some of the shoes that have brought a smile or a giggle to my day. Personally, I think that the designers have gone a little “over the top” with these shoe designs, but hey…………..that’s just my humble opinion.

 

So I turn to you for your opinions………

Do these styles make you want to “kick up your heels with delight”, or do you find yourself “digging your heels in with resistance”?
