Chanel Haute Couture - To Dream

Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2009 by Karl Lagerfeld

Shown in the October issue of Vogue (french open), styled by the Imitable Grace Coddington and worn by darling of the moment Karlie Kloss. The champagne pleated charmeuse halter dress is my dream gown. The black balancing out what would be otherwise too sweet, I can not help but think that should I ever get married it would be in such a dress. One can dream, cant they?

Balenciaga - The Genius of Nicolas Ghesquière

Today I am loving the beautifully drape-waisted jacket by Balenciaga. Worn as shown, or over skinny jean for a 'thrown on' look. This jackets impeccable tailoring will last for years, making it an investment worthy piece.
Be sure to look for new Balenciaga campaigns in Vogue and Harpers Bazaar, featuring Jennifer Connelly. Although I am NOT a fan of actresses in/on mag's, these particular shots looks great.

Fantasic Faux Leather Skirt

Need an incredibly affordable leather mini for fall?
Look no further than the zippered version available at Forever 21. At $17.80 it's a steal. The look and feel of this faux leather is so close to genuine it's impossible to discern. It also has hidden cotton boyshorts sewn right in, to keep everything under wraps!
