Pop Punk at Chanel

We love the humor of Karl Lagerfeld and his genius. Chanel's new campaign with Lily Allen is part pop and part punk, but absolutely tongue 'n cheek luxe. Check it out!

The Ladies of Paris

Paris is the undisputed fashion capital of the world, if not for the couture houses, then for the fashionably-savvy crowd that keeps the City of Lights glimmering with new cult labels and innovative ideas. Here's a few of our favorite fashion ladies, from a beautiful stranger during Paris Fashion Week who was dressed "down" in "basic", Garance Dore with her amazing LV camera bag, covetable Carine Roitfield, the ever ethereal Dree Hemingway, and Vanessa Traina in glorious Givenchy. A toast to the lovelies that keep us inspired with their style visions!

Rock 'N Road: Motorcycle Mamas Rock On!

We seem to keep coming back to the rock 'n road theme this season and we can't help ourselves. We love the way you ladies are inspiring us with the many ways you're wearing your motorcycle leather jackets from your Balmains to your Balenciagas and everything in between. We've since soldout of all of our leather, but spring season 2010 will offer up some new styles we can't wait to get in! As as a tribute to your savvy style, here's a few shots of notable personas in their favorite go-to jacket for the season (from Paris Vogue's Emmanuelle Alt to Vanessa and Victoria Traina).

Fall Trends in Pictures

Last night while catching up on our favorite blog reading, we stumbled upon several fashion images that recalled for us a few of the key fall trends for the current season. Worn so well by the street models shown here, each of them gave us a renewed sense of fun for getting dressed in the morning. Some of the trends we grabbed on instantly: winter white, '80's glitter and sequins, lumberjack plaid, snoods, and leopard prints and fur.

Holiday Dress-ing: The Long and Short of It

There are many options this holiday for party dressing. We love the complete '80s references that have punctuated all the designer collections and heart the sequin and shine that adorn holiday dresses. Preen, ALC, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Alexander Wang put us in prime party mood. Whether a strapless maxi dress or full-skirted short dress, the only question left is: Which to wear for the Xmas party and which for New Year's? If the dress is heavily embellished, don't over accessorize. If simple, top off with this season's best statement necklaces. Our faves: ACB and PYT.

These Shoes Were Made for Party

We're always coming across amazing statement shoes that get our pulses racing. And they usually come with an equally aspirational price tag to boot. But newcomer and current press darling Camilla Skovgaard's Chastity Wrap Sandal bucks the mold. Using a beautiful grey Italian croc-embossed Italian nappa leather, the Danish designer has molded a keenly-styled strappy sandal at an unbelievable price. Wrapping around the most flattering part of the leg, we'll want to wear these with skinny denim and leggings with opaque tights and all of our fall tunics and dresses we can imagine. We love its subtle new color - a welcome change from the black basic. And we love that it can enhance any holiday party dress without clashing. It begs a play on the phrase "$399 are you out of your mind?" If yes, let the craze ensue.
