FENDI 2 JOURS - CHIC AND UNDERSTATED - EVERY DAY AND EVERYDAY!

FENDI SPRING 17 RUNWAY - COLOR BLOCK EXPLOSIONIt's so exciting to see FENDI shine in all it's fashion glory this past three years.   For YEARS the brand was an afterthought.  Overshadowed (in my opinion) by the GIANT personality of Karl Lagerfeld and his affiliation with this storied house, but more so by his GINORMOUS affiliation and success with CHANEL.  In fact, Lagerfeld has been affiliated with FENDI for longer than he has been twirling tweed at Chanel.  Karl is a font of creativity yes, but for too many seasons FENDI could almost be called CHANEL LITE.  FENDI PEACOCK BLUE 2 JOURS BAG - $2,350.00 - CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE INFO / COLORS IF Chanel had wide belts, Fendi had wide belts.   If Chanel had a bag in a bag, next season Fendi - bag in a bag... and on and on and on.

Lately however, the whimsical creativity Karl has unleashed in anime and cartoon like Technicolor has caused the brand to explode with interest.   All types of shapes and sizes of accessories, and of course those famous furs!   Even Karl's likeness on a FUR key chain or bag ornament became an "IT" things.  There haven't been this many FENDI bags on the street since the companies famous #BaguetteBag helped create the concept of the "it" bag in the 90's.

Smaller brands like TULESTE took the fur pompoms and RAN with it... and now those items are "IT"s.  Love those TULESTE girls!! 

Having said all that.. the FENDI bag I'm enamored with lately is one of the most classic, conservative, and safe handbags they make.   The 2 Jour (play on words for tourjours or tous jour) - meaning everyday and always.  The bag is fantastic.  It's the perfect size (there are several), and it's just formal enough for business uptown, and just cool enough for having fun downtown.   The calfskin leather is durable enough to take a beating and honestly, it starts to look better when it's worn in.  This navy version is my friends go-to bag. FENDI 2 JOURS BAG IN NAVY - HANGING AROUND THE FRENCH RIVIERA She is cool and chic and lives in the South of France.  The bag has bopped between NYC and The French Riviera for a year now - and just gets better!    Click images to shop the latest color.   FENDI NAVY 2 JOURS BAG - GETTING SOME SUN ON THE COTE D'AZUR

DID YOU SHOP SMALL ON SMALL BIZ SATURDAY?  

If you were out shopping this holiday weekend, I hope you were able to #ShopSmall and support small businesses in your community.  When your shopping for things on your holiday list, remember that even if things cost a few more dollars are small boutiques, dollars spent at independent stores are shown to stay in your community much more than those spent at big box stores. 

There are great shops in every town and city that are run by hard working men and women - living their dream by creating that one of a kind shopping experience you can only find right there!  

Every category from Chocolate to Chukka boots are usually just around the corner.  If you don't live in a town with much retail happening - then let your fingers do the walking on-line, as many small shops have BIG online stores. American Express created the program to support their clients that accept Amex and have a great search tool on the website - SHOP SMALL (click to search your town).

Don't think you missed it if Saturday came and went and you didn't #SHOPSMALL - keep these stores in mind this entire holiday season - or actually ALL THE TIME.

CAPED CRUSADERS FROM ITALY TO BEYOND RUNWAYS!

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO DOUBLE FACE WOOL CASHMERE CAPE WITH LAZER CUT ZIG ZAG DETAILING AND GOLD ZIPPER - APPROX $3,400.00 - BULGARI HANDBAGAND WATCH - PHOTO CR: NORTHPARK SHOPPING CENTER - DALLAS, TXGUCCI FALL 2016 "TROMPE L'OEIL" GREEN CAPE - $3,600.00 - PH CREDIT: GUCCI One of the biggest trends in box-office success over the last 10 years has been the ever increasing presence of Superheroes.BALENCIAGA WOOL AND CASHMERE PONCHO WITH FRINGE - $1,265.00  In more franchises than I can list, rival studios and comic book camps have empowered women and men that fly, bolt, and run across the universe.   While capes are nothing new to the fashion world, I can't help but think the recent trend on luxury runways has been influenced by all these "super" ladies flying faster than a speeding bullet.   Fall 2016 was no exception.   Ferragamo and Gucci were two that owned the runway with dramatic capes.   If Little Red Riding Hood had a budget - you know she'd be wrapped in one of these.  

Balenciaga went for a more traditional Poncho ala the #TruckerChic look they have going on.  All these looks are in stores now... but hurry - with the temps finally feeling like Fall - they are selling fastCLICK IMAGES TO LEARN MORE.

THE TIMELESS ALLURE OF ALL THINGS PINK

The tranquil beauty of a late Summer pink sky in Connecticut - PH: Jason JobsonThere are many colors thought of as classics in the fashion world, and in life.  Black, White, Navy, and for certain areas of the United States - Pink.  Pink is a staple in the warmer, sunnier parts of the US, and more of a novelty in cities like New York or Chicago.  ACNE STUDIOS - Wool & Cashmere notched collar coat - $1,410.00There is something about the amount of sunlight and temperature that a place gets throughout the year that changes the way people relate to colors in their life.   

Pink is romantic, pretty, natural, and calming to list just a few appealing qualities to this color found so beautifully in nature.  For Fall 2016, fashion designers creating the most exclusive collections showcased stunning items in various shades of pink.  GUCCI FALL 2016 PINK SILK DRESS The chic effect PINK has when mixed with black and white. This Salvatore Ferragamo Silk Blouse and reptile handbag with gold chain strap in stores now.

In world of makeup and beauty of course pink is a staple every season, in every category.  CHANEL is one brand that leads the industry in using the color pink.  One of the most popular items are lip gloss and lipsticks.YSL PINK LIP GLOSS STUNNING PINK HYDRAGEAS SEEN IN CONNECTICUT - PH: JASON JOBSON  To see examples available at Nordstrom - click - CHANEL LIP GLOSS.   YSL is also a leader in all things pink in their collection. 

It's no surprise so many gardeners around the world choose pink flowers and plants for their own gardens.  What is more beautiful than flowers like these pink hydrangeas.

Of course, the attraction to pink could be due to the most natural, if not evolutionary reasons.  Most mammals are pinker in color in the most delicate parts of the body from face, to hands, to genitals.  Of course we are soothed by, and drawn to the color - in all shades.
