Top 10 Favorite Handbags

1. Mulberry Alexa (I want this bag in yellow or purple so much!)

2. I LOVE this Proenza Shouler bag. I would kill for it!

3. This Givenchy bag is so amazing. Don't you agree?

4. This Chanel bag is so classic and so chic.

5. This Balenciaga bag is so fabulous and so effortless.

6. The Hermes Birkin in olive green (my favorite Birkin color!) Need I say more?

7. I love this Alexander McQueen bag. It's very avant guarde and I love the rugged look to it.
8. YSL bag (I've always loved this bag).

9. This Alexander McQueen clutch is so colorful and fun.

10. Another Alexander McQueen clutch. I love this because of the glove and as you can see I am a huge Alexander McQueen fan.

These are my top 10 favorite handbags!

P.S I will be blogging once a week instead of twice. Blogging is a very hard thing to stay on top of sometimes.

Alexander McQueen Lobster Claw Shoe

I was looking through some old blog images and I found this picture. I love this shoe but it makes me so sad. I definitely think that Sarah Burton is doing a great job with the company but it is still very sad that Alexander McQueen is no longer there. One has to ask, what the cuss does it feel like to wear these shoes?

Hearts for Haiti!

Hearts for Haiti!

"Million Hearts for Haiti" is a project to help raise money for Haitian artisans who lost their homes in the earthquake last year. These hearts are carved from stone found very close to the center of the earthquake. They are available at Keith Reckers studio in Sag Harbor, or can be bought on line at
(I purchased the two above).

Color Forcaster.

Viewing Pantone books with Keith.
Yellow page in Pantone book.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet Keith Recker who works with WGSN and Pantone among others. He showed me the exclusive WGSN site (which is a major trend-analysis company for the fashion world) and also let me look at the Pantone books he created. His job is to influence the choices designers make for which colors to use each season. His choices are inspired by everything from politics and nature to films and music. What an amazing job!

Collette Happy New Year!!

I wish I wore this shiney (plastic) vintage Chanel bag at the New Years ball I didn't attend.

And someone (not me, duh) should wear these Jil Sander boots, perhaps to the New Year's party I didn't attend.
Yeah, my first blog of 2011. Some of you may have noticed that I've had a bit of blogger's block lately. Well my New Year's resolution is to blog (or at least try to) twice a week. Please comment if I get lazy.

P.S. Just got back from skiing and couldn't help but wonder if anybody's made skin tight ski pants. Does this exist? And if not, why not?
