Lindsey Lagerfeld

I spent my weekend up in Boston... totally unprepared for the 10 degree temperature difference!!  Going from 75 to 65 is a huge deal wardrobe wise!! In my shoe bag was a bunch of flip flops and luckily one pair of flats... 





Hello Chanel.  Aren't they to die?  Best of all? I found them in a consignment shop BRAND NEW!



I also wore my Chanel classic 2.55 flap bag with an off the shoulder comfy top and leggings to go shopping in the city.  My preferred style as of late?  Let's be real... my favorite outfits to shop in or spend a casual afternoon consist of effortless pieces (*ahem* LEGGINGS) paired with one or two high fashion pieces... or statement jewelry.  Casual with an edge!

Design for Thought

I'm a loyal Housewives watcher and I couldn't help but fall in love with the designer Analili after seeing her bright and uniquely designed pieces on Alexis Bellino of the OC and Lisa VanderPump of BH. After contacting them and not being able to get the "Julie" halter top I wanted, I settled (I use that term loosely because the piece is GORGEOUS) for a dress they found for me carried at a local boutique. Then to my delight my dress made a huge splash on this season of The Real Housewives of NJ as seen on Melissa Gorga!

The balloon sleeves are my favorite part of this dress! The front dips a little low so the sleeves give it a more sophisticated sexy look, without being overly exposed. (important!!)

I have yet to wear the dress, but when I do I will do a style post. For Analili's 2012 check out their website and find a boutique near you!

In Search of All Things Zig Zag

Coming at you from my new walk in closet!! Did anyone score anything from the Missoni for Target line?! Even through all the craziness I managed to get a few things, and kept myself free of bruises and scratches!


this is the perfect fall hat!



(ignore the Burberry wedges trying to take the limelight. I have my closet set up like a store with everything on display! Should have moved these, whoops!) I absolutely was in love with the block heel on these shoes! With most of my pumps being stilettos, I thought that these would be a nice change.



My full score: brown floppy hat, high heels, dishes, stoneware platter, cardigan, and clutch. The one thing I truly wanted though, the patterned flats, were not a success. Sigh. Did anyone score the sweater dresses? Those were my second fave!!

Battle of the Red Soles




My beloved Louboutin lost his battle to fashion powerhouse Yves Saint Laurent yesterday for the exclusive right to all things scarlet (at least when it comes to the outer soles of shoes).

In federal court, US District Judge Victor Marrero ruled that Louboutin -- even if widely recognized for its trailblazing use of red under the shoe -- could not stop competitors like YSL from doing the same thing.


"...in the fashion industry color serves ornamental and aesthetic functions vital to robust competition, the court finds that Louboutin is unlikely to be able to prove that its red outsole brand is entitled to trademark protection...Awarding one participant in the designer shoe market a monopoly on the color red would impermissibly hinder competition among other participants. YSL has various reasons for seeking to use red on its outsoles," said Marrero. (who revealed himself as an ardent admirer of the sexy slip-ons!!)

YSL is scornful of Louboutin's claim to a break through in fashion design, saying it has featured red soles all the way back to the 1970s... with Louboutin only emerging on the fashion scene in 1991 and obtainng a US patent for the red soles in 2007.

The idea for red soles was "copied from King Louis XIV's red-heeled dancing shoes or Dorothy's famous ruby slippers in 'The Wizard of Oz,'" Judge Marrero quoted YSL as saying. OUCH!

Regardless of anything "legal," I believe everyone is aware what Louboutin stands for, and will continue to remain known for.

...that being said if you have seen Palais, you know who it belongs to as well!!
