Saw these and just about died. The incorporation of some interesting esoteric/masonic/egyptian symbols on the pieces, adds a magical element to the collection and he doesn't skimp since the prints appear, right down to his accessories and shoes -just wish they came in black with maybe grey, white or red embroidery...pretty please?



Score: Perfect booties for Parisian winter nights...
(Seychelles x I Do Booties)...did I mention that I love Marshall's?

"Chronology. The symbolic short stars dark Italian beauty Mariacarla Boscono in highlights from the fall 2010 collections—including Miu Miu, Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino and Christopher Kane."



Fall is just around the corner and usually the cooler weather sends me into fits of anticipation for the spooky season, i.e. Halloween and all the Autumn-goodness that surrounds it. It's no wonder that lately I've been caught in a frenzy of buying scented oils and soaps (extreme guilty pleasures!) and the concoctions available from Solstice Scents are spellbinding. My favorite is the Conjure soap and oil -a mixture of champa, sandalwood, clove, rose and cauldron smoke...and the packaging is beautiful, high quality with even some sample oils thrown in. 



Darker is the Memory

Raquel Zimmermann by Mario Sorrenti in Darker is the Memory Vogue Nippon Oct 2010

This shoot sends me into fits of yearning for travel and adventure. Luckily, I'll be in Amsterdam and Paris at the end of this year, and it's gonna be nothing short of epic. 2011 will start out with a bang and all that has crystallized during 2010 will take flight and transform in the most mysterious of ways. I'm absolutely sure of this.




I have a major weakness for draped pieces. The Laval vest from Complex Geometries's latest collection is to die for. Shorter in back than in front with a cowl-like neck that can be worn a number of ways, even as a hood. This piece definitely goes on my list of picks for new Fall/Winter items this year.
