TOTALLY OBSESSED with these Dr. Marten Cherry Red Arcadia Chelsea Boots. The Cherry Red Arcadia are my faves but I also love them in the Smooth Black and Gaucho Crazy Horse (rugged work boot brown) colors. I don’t hate them in the classic Dr Marten Cherry Red Smooth Color but they just don’t do anything for me and I really don’t like them in the Navy Arcadia at all because it’s patent. The Cherry Red Arcadia are beautiful and classic and I think they’ll age really well and I can wear them all year round really. I am getting a pair of these, in this exact color, very soon courtesy of my mom LOL (love her!)
I want to be this fashionable after four kids!!! (I once wanted four kids, though recently I’ve reevaluated that number to two with the possibility of three LOL) This pic is of her and middle son Romeo Beckham out and about in Paris, Victoria is there for a photo shoot with ELLE Magazine (that involved the Chanel store and Chanel Haute Couture, can’t wait for pics). I also love this pic because it shows that although little girls are great *cough* we rule boys drool, LOL, you can also have a little boy(s) and be able to shop for them and have them look amazing. There is no one who can say the Beckham boys don’t look amazing in whatever they wear. And of course that you can look fabulous after four kids and fashionable. (And sorry no I don’t subscribe to the set of thinking that you need millions of dollars and nannies and the like to look nice on a daily basis.)
She looks just so fabulous!! Wearing a dress from the Chanel Cruise Summer/Spring 2013 Collection with Black/Spiked Christian Louboutin flats.
*said in the voice of that commercial for the Bod male fragrance spray* (If you still don’t know then: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-G0vfELSRg&feature=related)
You may not be in love with her style, but I’ve yet to see anyone’s closet top hers. It’s all so gorgeous, professional, and boutique-y. There’s a room just for shoes, just for clothes, and just for lingerie, and I’m going to include the salon in this too; you need make up and hair to go a long with your great outfits and cute accessories. The rest of her apartment is fabulous too, she may not be a style icon but she’s got great taste when it comes to interior design, a killer shoe collection, and great accessories (love her jewelry).
The top pic is of her closet, it’s a shot of the other end of the closet depicted above.
Loved this documentary. The Haute Couture side of fashion, is something we the public rarely, okay never get to see. Unless of course, we’re looking at the pictures of it on Vogue Italia. The only thing I want to say is that someone on the first part of the YouTube videos made the comment that the documentary was trying to make Fashion Week out to be snobby or something. I think this person missed the big idea that the journalist is exploring the world of Haute Couture not the world of Ready-to-Wear! Haute Couture was built on exclusivity and to tell you the truth, I think it would be rather silly to say that it wasn’t built on some snobbishness also. In France, the birth country of Haute Couture, if you wore Haute Couture you were most likely an aristocrat or royalty because those were truly the people who could afford the astronomical prices that the frocks of time past cost. It continues to this day, you may not have to be an aristocrat but you have to be filthy rich. No average Jane which is walking around in six figure frocks, they’re reserved for a select few. We do have to digress a bit, these days there are a lot of wealthy people who don’t want to be known, some who are richer than those who grace the pages of Forbes. When you get to the prices of these dresses it only makes sense that the world of Haute Couture would be a private one, seeing as the people who buy these dresses are private people. Besides Daphne Guiness I don’t know who buys Haute Couture, though I can tell you who makes it. Can you name anyone (not documented in the documentary)?
This is post is dedicated to all of my style icons, celebrity or not, that inspire me. I don’t know how to explain their styles exactly, nor am I going to try to. I just know that I love what I love when it comes to fashion, and I know who inspires me. These girls inspire me when it comes to fashion and I love their style, not one or two outfits but their whole style.
1. Extra Petite

6. Victoria Beckham.
7. Olivia Palermo
Unless you’re living under a rock , you know that the Hermes Birkin (followed by the Hermes Kelly) is the hottest accessory (over all and in the bag category) to have on your arm, in the past few years. I love Birkins and Kellys, not because they’re the hottest this or that, because I’ve seen a few things in recent years that are supposed to be a hot accessory that everyone needs to have in their closet, that I’ve thought was just horrible. I love the craftsmanship and and the materials. (Note: I’m only 18, so of course I don’t own any (though of course I know of a few young people who have access to them because they have very wealthy and generous mothers. I’m thinking of ways to find one, and be adopted by her. I’m eighteen but most people put me at 13, great in some ways, sad in others, but overall I’m not complaining) Anyway, I’ve still a few years under my belt to finish college, get a job, and save money lol. But what I really want to talk about is something that I’ve noticed about the very elusive Birkins and Kellys that I’ve never been able to put into words but that Hanushka of Luxury Marionette (one of my fave blogs) wrote in 2011:
Hermes Birkin = Giant Ponzi Scheme. A Lesson In Supply and Demand
Because people buy into this myth they are willing to pay a premium to own a Birkin and they retail for £7900 with most resellers. This makes it lucrative for individuals that are connected to the brand to slyly buy the bags and sell them on.
Once the market becomes saturated and customers realise that their assumptions are castles built on sand, demand will eventually crack. This is because all markets will eventually reach their efficient equilibrium (even luxury markets) no matter how much third parties try to distort their basic forces.**Reblog over
