I am sooo infascinated with the gowns that flowed down the runway for spring 2009. I know inauguration season is past but there are always a million and a half reasons to wear a gown.

Long gowns for the spring, are flowy, flashy, and flowery.

blumarine blumarine – I heart the “belt”

diane-von-furstenberg Diane Von Furstenberg. The color palette is to DIE for here. It’s so funky-fresh.

giorgio-armani Giorgio Armani- **jumps up and down** I want it! I need it! I crave it!

narciso-rodriguez Narcisco Rodriguez- The bodice is the best one I’ve seen all season. I like the complicated top and the simple bottom. Gives people something to stare at.

robertocavalli Roberto Cavalli- the bottom speaks for itself. This is a work of art.

In undergrad a lot of the sororities and fraternies had balls and I was never one to wear the long flowy gowns but I loved short beauiful dresses and I like to think of how it distinguishes one from the norm!

louis-vuitton Louis Vuitton- Not exactly ball worthy but dammit if it doesn’ tmake a statement! This is one of those dresses where you find a place to go to.

verawang Vera Wang- My favorite! It’s both classic and innovative. Sexy and Demure. Fabulous and Fantastic.

Until next time.


Thou Shalt Not Covet…

November 16, 2008

I’ll be the first to admit…. I shop like there’s a Princess title in front of my name. I’d rather starve than go without a pair of cute shoes and I’d surely trade a few of my love ones for this week’s Muse Must Have… Just kidding. Kind of.

I’m not trendy.. or rather rarely. But I really want a pair of booties. Ok a few pairs and these by Chloe are running the game…. A little peekaboo and alotta sex appeal. My type of shoe!


Chloe Key Hole Bootie

It’s Jacket season! Only my most favorite time of the year and I’m a junkie for anything military and really funky and Milly and Moschino are peaking my interests…


This coat is a clear reminder that military need not be associated with all things masculine. It’s the yin and the yang: the puffy feminine sleeves combined with a structured jacket.


This is my #1 favorite item this week. While granted my mother (the anti-fashion) would tell me that I could take my paintbrush and have a white coat without coating her A.Express with Moschino… I say this is the one coat that you don’t need to dress up. A colorful scarf and some leather gloves and you’re set for the cold winter! I know I’m excited.

I’m not one for purses that scream at anybody who passes by, but the Gucci Babouska collection have some bags that have been screaming my name. I think the key to wearing these bags, or any really “heavy” bag is the rest of your outfit must be simple. Wear too much at one time and look out for yourself in Glamour’s “Don’t” section. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.


my final must this season is straight off the runway and just in time for turkey holiday with the relatives. Looking at the pretty pattern on your shoulder will help distract from those awful questions by your great aunt sophie about when you’re getting married…. thanks Erdem.


til next time…. grosses bises.
