“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street,
fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ~ Coco Chanel
Again this year Cartier invites you to enjoy its magical Winter Tale. Two panther cubs play hide and seek in a snow-laden forest of fir trees. These mischievous cubs lead us on an enchanting adventure. Follow their journey, filled with discoveries and precious gifts.
You would be hard pressed to find a woman that would turn down a bubble bath. Warm scented water, a tub filled to the top with those tiny white bubbles, flickering candles, a glass of wine and some soft music… a perfect end to a long day. What could possibly make it better. What about a girly high heeled shoe tub tastefully glitzed for the feminine fashionista in you? This artsy collection was created by the Italian-based SICIS Art Mosaic Factory. The luxurious shoe tubs are decorated in flowery and glitzy glass mosaic on the outside and acrylic and/or fiberglass on the inside. Which is your favorite?
Cartier continues to amaze and inspire me with their artful commercials. Another hit the air this week and it falls right under Take My Breath Away. They show once again, commercials can be classy, tasteful and intelligent. Bravo Cartier!
Ten years ago actress Laura Harring wore Stuart Weitzman’s million dollar shoes with 464 diamonds at the Academy Awards for her Oscar-nominated film “Mulholland Drive”. Weitzman followed suit the next few years, featuring a new shoe on actresses, such as Regina King, Anika Noni Rose, singer Alison Krauss and others. Then came the recession. And the million-dollar shoe was deemed a too extravagant, even for the Oscars.
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the million dollar shoes, Stuart Weitzman has revamped the iconic sandals for his 2012 edition. Dubbed the “Millionairess,” the shoes have been given a Swarovski crystal makeover instead, with the straps featuring a crystal tear-drop. This year’s shoe will only set you back $595.
Who the lucky actress or Oscar nominee will be to wear these little gems is still unannounced.
Looking for something a little different to spend that holiday gift certificate on? How about of pair of rockin’ fur headhones? After his 24K gold Crystal Rock and Swarovski studded Rose Crytal headsets, teaming up with designer Oscar De La Renta seemed like a natural progression for Dr. Dre. Together they designed the limited edition Beats. The Beats are designed with plum tinted faux fur. The high definition headphones are created for a surround sound experience with distortion free clarity and sell for a sweet $695 price tag.
Yesterday we showed Santa a car for our wish list, so it only made sense today to add a boat. After much searching for the “perfect” boat, I think I may have found it. Meet Why. Wally–a company that makes stunning yachts–and the French fashion house Hermes teamed up in 2009 to design a new boat: The WHY, a full-blown solar-powered island.
The Bugatti 16 C Galibier is one of the several concepts which the company is considering for a future model. Dear Santa…. I’ll take one of these!
