Ok Valentino is not someone I usually think of for handbags but this bag is so Haute! It takes a special Diva to carry this bag off without looking silly and I think I am the lady for the job! Now to wait for a sale price...
Here are some of my favorites from Bergorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus right now...
Prada Red Cut-out pumps (I preordered) UPDATE: couldn't close these over my foot in size 42 (as you know I am a US 11)...so note they run small) Christian Louboutin Anthracite glitter slingbacks (also comes in black) Christian Louboutin Oxblood Glitter Pumps (I have the Oxblood on preorder) UPDATE: got them and love them...they lean toward brown tones in person more than burgundy red tones) Christian Louboutin Ruched d'orsay (I prefer them in black vs. pewter) Jimmy Choo Yves St. Laurent pink and navy platforms
Love them all...but sadly cannot afford them all :(
Working on my costume jewelry wardrobe and it is definitely all about the statement jewelry pieces this year. These are my picks for statment rings...all by Kenneth Jay Lane.
Kenneth Jay Lane has created unique designs for Jackie Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Vreeland, and Audrey Hepburn. His continued philosophy is that elegance, good taste and luxury never go out of style. Current stars wearing his jewelry include the Olsen twins, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mischa Barton, Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, and Britney Spears.
Many of the museum stores, including the Dallas Museum of Art, The Smithsonian, The Museum of Natural History, and the Bush Presidential Library carry his line of jewelry.
You can find his pieces on Kennethjaylanesales.com, QVC, eBay (reputable sellers), Macys, Nordstrom and other fine stores. This a great lower end accessory purchase in lieu of $500+ shoes and $1000+ bags in these hard times!
