Last Night in Miami: LANVIN Fashion Show!!

7 Nov

Last night, I had the honor of attending an evening of charity and fashion at the Fountainebleu hotel in Miami Beach. The event was sponsored by the shops at Bal Harbour & LANVIN to benefit Project Newborn. I got there in time to browse the silent auction goodies–there was so much up for auction! The crowd was bidding of luxurious things like fashion items from Bal Harbour Shops like Carolina Herrera and Yves Saint Laurent, and weekends at Miami Beach hotels like the FB and the Mandarin, just to name a few.

At around 9pm, IT HAPPENED. The FIRST EVER LANVIN RUNWAY SHOW IN THE USA. The clothes were UNBELIEVABLE. I was situated at the end of the runway by all the other press and photogs and the spotlight made getting pictures kinda tricky. With that said, please excuse some of my photos that look overexposed–I did the best I could! It was such an amazing experience and I am so grateful I got to attend.

Note, things got a little nippy in Miami this weekend, hence the faux fur vest. People here are so funny–it gets down to 60 degrees and people bust out the winter clothes. I love it. Silly Miami.

winter 2010-fair isle sweaters

5 Nov

Get in touch with your inner Scandinavian and pick up a fair isle sweater/onesie/pair of boots. Need style inspiration? Look to Kasia, Hilary, and Dree. And runway pics, thanks to Dolce & Gabbana. Unfortunately for me, my winter days are limited. Aside from the few days at Thanksgiving (still in FL, we’ll see if it cools off), I don’t really have any days necessitating clothing worthy of my Norwegian birthright. Anyone wanna take me skiing so I have an excuse?

I really really love the shorts onesie…maybe if I just kick my thermostat down I could rock that at home…

for the love of leopard

3 Nov

from coats to dresses, to turbans, bloomers, and heels; leopard lives on this season! Leopard is a personal favorite of mine, so if anyone sees cute leopard items please let me know! Novio hates it…but I just love it. Happy Wednesday, this week is just flying by…

daily dose of glam

1 Nov

Thank heavens for This is Glamorous for giving me glam photos to salivate over on a daily basis. Over the weekend I re-read The Debutante Divorcee and this website reminds me so much of that book, as well as Plum Sykes other huge hit, Bergdorf Blondes. The pink dress in particular reminds me of Tinsley: “I can’t have a job because I can only dress for the gym and for evening.” Tres chic!
