My favorite time of the year! has arrived along with the ever lingering smell of cinnamon and hot chocolate at my house and running around in Chrismas jammies...mine are red fleece pants and top full of teddy bears, hot chocolate mugs, and christmas trees... so enough about my jammies but on to my wishlist its ridiculously long and expensive so...but its christmas and maybe Jiminy Cricket will put in a good word for me with Santa

Prismacolor 112 Premier Colored Pencils....Pencil colors in every shade imaginable is my dream come true...perfect for my sketches(not that they're that good)

A polaroid parents own a digital camera which i'll use once in a while but i really want a polaroid camera there so old school and how fun would it be to just fool with your friends and take polaroid artys, non?
Books! I'm a book kind of girl, i read classics, teeny boppers(you know Gossip Girl) traveling guides, photo books, history books but i've yet to delve into the world of fashion books.The Golden Age of Couture which is a book of Couture pieces....i totally want it come on couture is heaven and th closest i'll get to it for now are photos in a book
Balenciaga Paris...Balenciaga is the number one designer ever so a book i'll read over and over again
Dior is turning 60 if i'm correct this year and its such a legendary house that this book must be really great

This lambie gift set from Bath and Body works...because everyone needs they're little beauty oasis and who doesn't want lamb slippers and a cute eye mask
Lanvin...looks like an excellent book i love cute chubby teddy bear like Alber Elbaz and his gorgeous designs that are changing the house of Lanvin so a book about him and the house is perfect
These cute vintage Moschino gloves from ebay because gloves are so hot this season and they're so sophisticated, chic and cute
These Citrine by Stone set of three not much of a jewelry girl but i love these basic bangles in eye popping colors

Daybirgeretmikkelsen's a bit overwhelming especially in black but yet its so beautiful it would spice up any outfit from a v neck white shirt with jeans to a jewel colored minidress
This white Kenneth Jay Lane bangle is so simple but its also really cool and adds spice to any outfit
This very cute bracelet by's very wintery with the purple, black and silver with gold...its very pretty and perfect for every occasion


Lacoste Retro tennis bag...i love tennis and i need a new bag for tournaments and games(and i probably might get this one)but i want it in red

I think this is the classic Miu Miu bag and i love it especially in this color so if this would be under the tree i would cry...maybe...probably
This Burberry Prosrum studded bag is so different and i love it it looks big enough to take as a carryon bag for traveling...who cares if its not big enough but its gorgeous and so different
The classic Chanel 2.55 in classic black of course because its a classic!!! Which means you will own this baby for the rest of your life and can use it for the rest of your life

This very cute Derek Lam clutch in a metallic clutch and with ram head detail...clutches are huge this season and i love this one
This Hermes shopper...its a gorgeous print and buying this shopper will help the environment so you won't use plastic bags when you go shopping...i would love this print in a scarf too

Marni bag with stone detail is also a very different looking handbag in a sea of It bags this one sets its mark and its very art deco i think
These Stella McCartney Fuschia pumps they are every girls dream come true...i always wanted what I call Barbie pumps which are beautfiul pink pumps...and Stella McCartney got it right on par

These Louboutin sort of ruched booties...they're not the typicals smooth patent booties they are gorgeous leather sort of bad girl booties
Marni colorblocked wedges...i know colorblocked wedges seem weird but even a girl used to living in heels sometimes needs to rest and wedges work well

These Miu Miu pumps in black and grey...i later saw them in nude satin and they are much cuter but i'll add that later...which are perfect for everything, dresses, skirts, pants

These cute Pedro Garcia flats...even though i love heels i knew i at least have to have some cute flats and these flats are gorgeous color and look exquisite
Sergio Rossi metallic pumps with black detailing now if you go with your usual lbd for holiday parties these puppies will make your outfit pop
Alexander McQueen pumps....Dorothy would be proud and i certainly am i love these and they're santa's favorite color
McQueen zipper detail flats for all the biker chicks in us but don't go overboard with it and wear a biker jacket and stud belt with these one at a time everyone
These Chloe flat boots which are also biker chic and would give a funky edge to minidresses and skirts
These wood looking Fendi platforms because brown platforms are my absolute favorite so these will be a wonderful addition to my wall of brown platforms
Last but certainly not least is black patent flat boots i want a pair so badly these are Jimmy Choos so they're worth a small fortune but it would be a dream to find black patent flat boots for like a fraction of the price
Now on to the clothes.....
The lanvin top that chloe is working in the above picture..i fell in love with it but i've never found it online so i haven't had a chance to buy it

This Kate Moss for Topshop beaded dress...if you don't already know i'm in love with the 20's...feathers,sequins, and bobs...and this is just an amazing dress
This colorblocked Pucci dress...i love the blue bow detail and its perfect for that difficult transition from fall to winter

This feathered Marchesa dress because its gorgeous and i think every girl should own one Marchesa dress to make her feel fabulous no matter what
This Proenza Schouler it looks like its probably hard to carry off in real life but confidence is everthing and i absoultely love the embellishment
This Derek Lam dress...its so simple yet chic and would be perfect for everyday winter wear
Again Derek Lam with a swing skirt, belt and grey top this is also a good winter look and so it won't be so drag try it with bold colored pumps or a statement jacket
Dior resort dress i'm so in love with this dress the color the feathers the tailoring its absolutely perfect for me
This cute little black dress from DKNY is perfect because its a great silhouette and you can make it daring and bold with colored tights, platforms, or bold jacket and accessories
This Christopher Kane dress made of velvet and leather which is to die for..i remember when i was ten i wore a blue velvet dress with purple ombre embroidering and i fell in love with it but it doesn't fit me and this Kane confection is just the ticket
Every single color of the V neck American Apparel T-shirt
This yellow green Armani dress which is a stunning color that will have everyone looking at you
This Balenciaga dress from the 2006 collection which i've wished for every Christmas since i saw it...maybe this is my year
This pink Christian Lacroix dress because its pink and girly and would make anyone feel like a goddess
This other Christian Lacroix dress i love the print and....what don't i love about Christian Lacroix?
I know that i hardly if ever post about pants or shirts because i am a dress's weird i own jeans and shirts but i'm just so attracted to mom thinks its an addiction
And that is all for now since i'm sure i'll find much more...i'll be gone to Houston for Thanksgiving holidays and i think we're off to Brazil for the Christmas holidays though of course i'll be home for the 24th and the 25th so i'll be seeing you in some time but just in case things don't work out i wish everyone an early Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza

Splurge: Ferragamo’s Varina Flat

As much as I love wearing heels sometimes your feet need a rest and what better way to reward your aching feet than with a pair of Ferragamo flats. Everyone knows Tory Burch’s flats were the “it” flats of the season, all though I never liked them. But these Varina flats are chic and elegant and can be worn with jeans, dresses or skirts. It’s a splurge fora pair of flats since usually I tend to splurge on heels but they look well worth it

Monday, November 5, 2007

....i know i know finally i'm back...but i always am thanks to my mom who decided to take my laptop charger with her on her trip to Panama and didn't tell me i've been disconnected for quite some time and so to make up for not blogging for quite a while i've spent the last week researching vintage it may seem easy but its actually much harder than you think to find gorgeous mint condition vintage couture gowns so here i bring you only the creme de la creme available on the lovely of course since these are vintage couture gowns i suggest you don't put them on your christmas list for santa since santa probably can't afford such expensive dresses
So before we jump knee deep into vintage designers i'll start with a less known designer...straight from the city of the double deckers and giant clocks i bring you jean muir..these two dresses are so simple yet extremely elegant and they are timeless, the beige beaded one reminds me of marches and the va va voom red one reminds me of mr. valentino
Next on the list comes a plunging v back Lanvin gown in dark blue and green its extremely elegant and yet a bit sexy with the back
I about had a cardiac arrest when i saw these two Lanvin gowns...i mean its already amazing that this is vintage Lanvin but ever since i saw hercules i've always wanted to find a gown like Meg's(if that is her name)now its not purple but the beautiful pink totally beats the purple its so gorgeous that i'm trying to convince my mom to buy it for this charity event now the other pink pale gown is pretty don't get me wrong but looks like something you can find for much less than 1500 at a good evening gown store
Now this one was pretty rare because i found loads of vintage chanel suits but not a lot of chanel dresses and this one particularly caught my eye...i guess the layers and layers of chiffon in that gorgeous beige with undertones of pink and the breathtaking neckline if i ever got nominated for a golden globe i would definitely consider this
Now this is a vintage Christian Dior and yet it looks like something from the last collection(of course after this post i'm going to and looking at his last 4 collections and see if i can pinpoint it) anywhos this gorgeous purple color and the cute empire waist are definitely worth it
This is a Galliano vintage ikat coat and this would go perfectly with this season's tribal vibe now if this baby didn't cost app. $1000 i would be the first one to buy it and i would wear it with everything..jeans, dresses, skirts believe me everything
Vintage Givenchy...sounds so chic non? it reminds me of audrey hepburn i like the one no the lefts especially with the fringed skirt..if it were up and i had the money my closet would be full of feathered and fringed dresses, oversized clutches, sky high platforms and vintage cartier oversized watches and cocktail rings and this would be my favorite dress..maybe i'll get back to you on that if i find something else
Another vintage givenchy confection and this one was actually made by hubert de givenchy so that's double rare...sounds like i'm talking about pokemon cards...anyways its a gorgeous classic black gown with dark purple undertones and it still looks modern even though its like from the 50's
Now this dress i practically died when i saw's the most gorgeous flapper dress ever and if i could i would buy this and wear it to prom even if the theme is something like futuristic or topless mardi gras nights(which i would doubt since we're a catholic school)this dress had not designer name and yet its absolutely gorgeous....if the world was fair and beautiful i would own this dress, everyone would have something to eat, their would be peace, bush wouldn't be president, and britney spears was a successful beautiful pop star and caring mother but the world my friends is not fair if you haven't noticed(oh and my boyfriend would be hayden christensen)
Now i've saved the absolutely best for last....vintage Balenciaga, now vintage Balenciaga is as rare as finding a virgin in the red district of amsterdam(if you get my jist)so when i found these next four gowns i screamed so loud my housekeeper almost called the cops(thank god she didn't)and if you didn't know Cristobal Balenciaga is my all time favorite designer of all time.period and christian lacroix comes in second
this silver gown is so geometrical looking and super modern because silver is one of the colors of the season and who cares if its modern Balenciaga has the most impecable tailoring in the world
so even if your bloated this gown will make you look like a million bucks(it better for the big price tag it comes with)
Now this red balenciaga gown is really that would think there was a crinoline underneath this baby but no this vintage gown has lots of layers it look like a delectable red velvet layered cake if i ever become famous and go to a Met gala or the oscars this would be my #1 pick hands down for that night even if the style at the time is gold leggings, green tube dresses, purple tutus and tin foil jewelry i could care less i would wear this lets just hope i find it in a couple of years(maybe i should put it on hold for like eight years from now)
Lastly and certainly not least this ivory white balenciaga couture call me crazy but i would get married in this because its a beautiful work of art and its balenciaga for crying out loud i think i would get married in practically any vintage balenciaga gown even the red one above who cares if its not white i would get married in that too there so impecably tailored and im off to see how much years it will take to save up money for one of these gowns with my birthday money

and if you(like me) can't afford vintage couture gowns you can find vintage evening gowns and clothes at:
i'm hoping to find a cute dress for prom on one of these sites because if you buy vintage no one else will have your dress and it will be much more unique and more fashionable my dears!
