Louis Vuitton puts the LV in Love

I have been raving about the new Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 collection. It is so elegant, chic, feminine, and, of course, fashionable.

In my opinion, the A line skirts topped with form fitting tops (somewhat reminiscent of a laid back corset) that accentuate the curves of a woman is one of the major fashion icons for this upcoming fall. It reminds me a lot of the Betty Crocker type dressed from the 50s, with a modern fashion twist for the 21st century. Rather than having cherry red as the main color hue seen in the 50s, the 2010 collection sports brownish-greyish tints with hints of blues, purples and greens, making this perfect for the upcoming fall fashion scene. I love how LV used different fabrics for his A line look, ranging from leather to tweeds, and incorporated cute and simple accessories like the perfect little belt or elbow length leather gloves.

We all know how some designers can go over the top at their shows, but LV’s team decided to keep everything simple, yet classy and elegant. Models’ hair were chosen to be tied back into long pony tails, with natural-esque makeup. The look definitely compliments the pieces being showcased.

My favorites of the bunch are these 2:

peacock love

My latest obsession lately has been with peacock feathers. They’re so exquisitely beautiful- the lush green and shiny blue tints make them stand out and have such an edge. I also love how they’re been incorporated into fashion and accessories. Check out some cool digs I’ve found:

  • Tights (picture source: splendora.com)- These tights could be worn with the feathers on the front or the back- I have yet to find one with the feathers on the side of the leg- When I do, I’ll definitely snag a pair. I’d most likely wear these tights with the feathers on the back of the leg though.
  • Headbands: I actually have made some feather inspired headbands myself this past week, and, of course, I incorporated the peacock feather. My picture didn’t come out so great, but it’s the best I can do. Checkout some of these that I found on Etsy… gorgeous!

  • Apparel: I know some of these may not have just the peacock feather, but they’re inspired by peacocks (and their feathers), which make them just as awesome.
  • How gorgeous is this tunic!?                                                 Etsy Shop: NoraKaren

I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I did making it, and that you’re now inspired to add some peacock feathers to your wardrobe :).

the next item to steal the wish list stage is the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Pump

I actually wrote about them in a previous post around 6 months ago.

If anyone has 850$ to spare, please, please do not hesitate to get these for me.

I’ve been eyeing them for more than a year now.

I am determined to get them one day. I’m not picky about the color, I’ll take any!! 🙂

How absolutely gorgeous and elegant are they? Many celebs have been seen sporting these babies… and I don’t blame them

Home Inspiration

I’ve always loved the richness of North African culture.
.
And I’ve always been drawn to their styles of decoration, draping, lighting, color, and tone.
.
Such detail, such vividness, such bite.
It almost feels alive.
.
I think that it’s always important to feel warm in one’s home, and the Moroccan style does that for me just perfectly.
.
Sensual. Bold. Seductive.
.
Absolutely love the look and the feel.
