Chanel bag
Rag and Bone

I'm sorry I haven't blogged for such a long time. This summer has been incredibly busy. I was thinking about my blog and wondering what to do next while walking around Sag Harbor. If only someone interesting would just appear. I stepped into Nikki Eve and was photographing the Chanel bag and Rag and Bone shoes when who should I see, but the one and only Betsey Johnson. After a quick introduction, Betsey and I took some pictures and she kindly invited me to her September Fall/Winter show! What a great way to get back into my blog. More to come soon.

Collette Items of the Week

Prada bag and shoes
This necklace is a piece designed by Masha Archer who travels the world collecting beads. It's incredibly beautiful and very heavy! She used glass, coral, lotus pods, and even rare limited edition coins in this necklace.

It may be late July, but these pieces make me really excited for Fall fashion.

Louis Vuitton 5 Ways

My very very generous Uncle Charlie, who's in the wine business and spends a lot of time in Paris, gave me a Louis Vuitton scarf for my birthday this year. Its surprising how many ways you can wear a Louis Vuitton scarf.

Camp Skype with Johnny Weir

Johnny Weir in the 2010 Winter Olympics wearing his favorite costume.

At my camp in Wisconsin, we had a live Skype with Johnny Weir. He gave us the scoop on his latest costume for Japan (which I can't reveal, but lets just say it involves lace). He told us his favorite Lady Gaga songs are "Speechless" and "Poker Face" and that he would like a Hello Kitty toaster. He also wished me a happy birthday because we share the same birthday, July 2nd. We ended the Skype by singing "Bad Romance" to him. What a fabulous person.
