Tutus at Balmain

It's only natural that the opening of Paris fashion week would be led by Christophe Decarnin for Balmain. Amidst the rocker chic blinged out drummer boy jackets and stone washed jeans were the the tutu dresses. Embellished with touches of diamante and paired with studded stilettos in a color palate of black and white they resembled an illegitimate love child of a rocker and a ballerina.

sophomore nyc

As I was looking for a little fashion inspiration from Jen Brill, girlfriend of the ever famous photographer Terry Richardson and stylish girl about town, I ran across Sophomore NYC. The collection of strong basics is inspired by the edgy simplicity of Downtown New York. My personal favorites are the zipper skirt and dress, I'm feeling an obsession with zippers coming along. And to make it even better Jen Brill and Donald Cumming (lead singer of the Virgins) are the models for the Fall Look Book.

hello lover

Alexander Wang's foray into accessories is a recent but highly necessary development. Case in point...this royal blue oversized clutch that I discovered while perusing Barney's the other day. It's kind of perfect...simple with just a touch of rock and roll edge via zipper detailing. And the electric blue color really makes it pop. Not to mention the exquisite buttery leather....pretty sure this one is going on my birthday list

Alison Mosshart

I'm completely enamored by the Kills. Not only does Alison Mosshart have an intoxicating voice she also has pretty killer personal style. Even if it is a little dirty and rock'n'roll she pulls off skinny jeans, leather jackets and weathered boots perfectly.

"Your clothes are all made by Balmain..."

I fell in love with the Balmain Fall 2008 collection the minute I laid eyes on it. It flawlessly exudes effortless rock n roll glamour. I want to wear every piece as I dance all night until the wee hours drinking Moet. Plus the black strapless gown worn by Catherine McNeil completely appeals to my obsession with the snake motif... thank you Christophe Decarnin.

Erin Wasson

Could someone please inform me when it became strange, last time I checked I was celebrating New Years in Barcelona. In other note...Erin Wasson is probably my favorite model, next to Kate Moss of course. It goes without saying that she has incredible personal style and not to mention an array of other talents including jewelry designer & stylist extraordinaire. Plus her collaboration with the surf/skate brand RVCA is set to hit stores in Spring 2009 and I am waiting patiently (big surprise there, but what can one do)

I'm off to celebrate in the sunshine....xoxoxo
