While on my travels I did a lot of looking and shopping. I am not a huge gambler, so I had plenty of time for shopping. Hooray!
One of the most exciting things I got to do was, I got to smell Scent of Peace by Bond #9. It is their newest and most highly anticipated scent. There were fabulous Bond salespeople at the Saks in Vegas. Laurice should be VERY proud of them. They were very excited about the fragrances and knew their stuff! One of the salespeople was an awesome man named Princess--yes Mary, a man named Princess--is that not the best? Scent of Peace is lovely, but smells a lot like D& G Light Blue to me-- it has a little more berry, but still very similar. The bottle , however is beautiful and would be a beautiful addition to my collection.
Ah---The Louis Vuitton Tupelo Sandal. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I had been admiring these in my Italain Vogue for months, but had never seen them in person till I went to Vegas. I know these are a little loud and tacky in a Mariah Carey kind of way--however, I LOVE them because they are unique. My husband totally wanted me to get them, but there are 2 Louis Vuitton boutiques in Vegas, and neither of them had my size. Where on earth in the Suburbs could I wear these? Maybe to a Lil Kim concert or something?
AhhhhChloe. I love these sandals. I love the substantial heel. Stilettos are hot, but they can be so hard to walk on. The more substantial heels are supposed to be all the rage this fall. Notice it is not a chunky heel (shudder), but a thicker heel. I will be sporting these with denim gauchos this summer. I love them so much. I had been lemming these forever, when I saw them and made them mine! Chloe remains one of my favorite houses.
I love the unique design of this Gucci bag. The bananas and pineapples make me think of the Caribbean. I had been admiring this bag on line and it is so much more interesting looking in person. The photograph does not do it justice at all.
My oh my! There are no words for these gorgeous Louboutins. They take my breath away. I want to wear them with a beautiful Celine dress and I want to go to a huge art show/ cocktail party in Paris! I am very excited to see what Ivana Omazic (formerly of Miu Miu) does for Celine. I have high hopes that Celine does not turn into a trendy Prada-ish looking line.
What are some beautiful fashion things you have seen this week?
Have a beautiful day!
