Shipley & Halmos' Treasure Filled Studio

We love this video of Shipley & Halmos' creative studio space. The natural light coming from the ceiling and the clean white walls make this a perfect place to reflect and work.

Lanvin Kids Collection

Parallel has no plans to expand into the smaller frock market but wanted to share this with you as it is so adorable! My obsession with children's clothing started 7 years ago with the birth of my daughter, Kirra. She normally prefers a more casual approach to her wardrobe but my daughter and I can dream that we are both wearing Lanvin.
Tres chic!

On an adult note: Michelle Obama was seen sporting a pair of Lanvin's chic sneaks in 2009. She was heavily criticized for wearing these as they cost a whopping $540 but I personally applaud her sense of style and confidence. Way to bring the French fashion house to the public eye. I love how she paired the fancy sneaks with a J. Crew Cardigan and capri pants. Splurge on Michelle!

Holiday Buying Trip/Chateau Marmont

Last week I went to LA to view the Holiday/Resort fashions. It was the quickest and most fulfilling trip to date. I caught the first flight in and caught the last flight out. The Holiday season starts in October thru November and the Resort (or Pre-Spring) season spans from December thru January. I love viewing these collections because it allows me to get a feel for what the Spring season will be a like. The funnest appointment was Rag & Bone who rented a villa at the Chateau Marmont. Scroll down to see my celebrity citing. :)

Rag & Bone showroom appointment

Colored denim!

Stripes are still going strong this Spring.

It's so nice when the designers hire a model to try on the clothes. Saves me the time and she makes everything look fabulous!

Love this sweater, it has a removable leather collar.

Curtis Knit Blazer. Cozy and chic!

Admiral Coat in Camel/Grey color blocking. Love!

Gold Shimmer top just in time for the holidays!

These two pieces are from a new designer I picked up called Aiko. I am so gonna rock that bolero this Holiday!

This is a luxurious cashmere/wool line named Soyer. Elegant, beautiful, and cozy! Everything I love!
