There’s a Mouse in the House at BONWIT’S

Bonwit’s has always been my favorite store……I’ll  buy something just to take home their signature  brown and white BOX.

Milo looks like he expected to find tea in this cup.

He admires the baubble……….but poor little mousy doesn’t have $287 left in his  yellow purse………which was $1,200.

Milo has such good taste………in Fashion and Cava.

Purses………..handbags……..totes……….and slouches.  These RED LIPS sewn into a tote by LULU GUINESS gets my vote for “MOST CREATIVE’.

Some of these bags are from Century 21, others are “faux”  but most of them are “Designer Bags………some in the $12,000 range.  I refuse to show the BIRKIN’S……….one of them at an auction in DallasTexas fetched $203,150. Of course, it was crocodile…..gold clasp with a diamond here and there.

 

Scarves were few and far between.  No “Hermes” to be seen.  The LOOK was fur collars……..!

I thought the “skeleton gloves” were a fun take on keeping your bones warm.

 

 

 

NEON / DAY GLOW………80’s Retro? nyc FASHION WEEK

Fashion week 2013 in New York was “ALL AGLOW“……….NEON was seen everywhere.  Is it a flashback to the 80’s?  If all this brightness frightens you…….start with something small.  Lipstick perhaps.  Or a pair of spiked heels.  Clutch or a handbag.  Then move onto something bigger!  Try it.  Just picture Brook Shields wearing it!

As Pinky Davo is prone to say…”Fashion does not always have to be serious” !

And my friend withe the orange eyelashes…….Ilona Royce- Smithkin agrees!

HANDBAG HEAVEN / 2013 Fashion Week nyc

Beaded, beautiful, bohemian and bold.  The accessory every woman loves.  They’re bold, boxy and beautiful.  Whether classic or chic they are comfortable, cool and couture!  Some are feminine others are funky.  Glitzy too.  I loved them all……sexy and sleek.  Bergdorf’s and Barney’s…….gotta love them too !

What would the fashion world be without Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel, Michael Kors,Hermes, Coach, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Kate Spake, Jimmy Choo, Balenciaga, Mui Mui, Guess .  Without them we would be richer. With them……….they get richer!

2013 nyc FASHION WEEK…..Touch my CLUTCH !!!

During the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week…….Feb. 2013……CLUTCHES were a hit.  Clamp it.  Clasp it. Clench it. Grapple with it.  Grip it.  Just don’t gripe because it doesn’t have a handle.

NYC SUBWAYS………fun…..fast and often WIERD !

The sights and sounds……….underground in the subways………always entertaining.  I am never bored.  My camera loves to catch New Yorkers “doing their thing”.  No captions necessary……the people tell their own story.
