I know I'm late to the party but....

I'm really loving the white tweed looks from the Chanel SS'10 show.... Something about them feels very demure, innocent almost, somehow, but with a sophistication in the Marie Antoinette references. They're looks for spring, but I feel they could be a very nice look for this winter; a crisp white tweed or boucle jacket over a party dress or with nice trousers...

celine s/s 2010

It was a highly anticipated show -- Phoebe Philo's return (well, after a smaller debut resort collection of basics). And to me these clothes are perfect simplicity. Leather t-shirts, shrugs, and skirts; trench coat meets shirt dresses; crisp white blouses and billowing khaki pants and jackets. The select use of stronger color is exquisite as well -- teals and dark blues that complement the neutrals perfectly.
Expectations were high, but Phoebe Philo didn't disappoint.

My new favorite look for day: just a simple little black dress and heels, accessorized for variety.

viktor and rolf spring 10

I always love a graphic pattern -- particularly a strong one using black. I have to be careful when shopping because that's what I'm always drawn to, and you don't want your entire closet to be filled with stripes! But it came as no surprise to me that these were my favorite looks from the Viktor and Rolf spring show. I love how they took the lines of a tuxedo lapel and made them abstract forms on dresses and drapey jackets.

Years later, I'm still loving that Prada shoe....

From The Sartorialist, of course.

Michelle Williams is Vogue's cover girl for October... and my how she's come a long way from Dawson's Creek. I love the short hair and these mod-ish, gamine looks they styled her in. Read about it here.

jewelry line love

I saw some of the bracelets from Giles and Brother in a magazine today and was transfixed: I love how they blend utilitarian and historical objects -- railway spikes, horseshoes, nuts and bolts -- with other equestrian details like hoofs and tied leather. So modern and nostalgic. And many of the designs can be personalized for free! Definitely worth checking out.

Detail I am loving now: tiny feather embellishment. I love how these looks (DVF, Fall 2009 and Burberry Fall 2008) use feathers as a textural detail and color pattern, not as fluff like you see in red carpet gowns. So luxe and chic.
