YSL Arty Ovale Obsession

I have been obsessed with Yves Saint Laurent’s Arty Ovale ring ($250) for ages.  I have nearly purchased it at least ten times.  But every time I’m about to enter my billing info, I back away from it, dissuaded by the hefty pricetag and uncertainty.  I’ve always had a hard time buying high-end stuff without trying it on. Luckily, The…

New Shoes – Loca Look A Like

Say hello to my newest addition to my collection: Red Carpet Collection from Town Shoes.  I know, some of you are thinking that these shoes look very similar to a pair by Brian Atwood called the Loca, worn by Sarah Jessica Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, in the awful second sequel to one of my favourite (but cliched) television series, Sex…

Givenchy Haute Couture Fall 2011

Ricardo Tisci was inspired by “Purity, lightness, fragility.” Those three adjectives couldn’t be more appropriate to describe these remarkable creations for Givenchy’s Haute Couture Fall 2011 collection. Detail was paramount in this collection. Designs featured plumes, pearls, crystals and silk layering so fine and precise, that each dress is its own work of art. Those looks aren’t my favourites from the collection, but…
