My Picks for Best Dressed at the Oscars 2017!

There were so many gowns that I had liked at last night Oscar’s, with lovely ladies looking oh, so stunning! There were also some misses. With that said, i’d rather discuss, but mainly show you the ones that were hits :). The men, too. Heads up, you will see velvet that men had worn. It’s the new top fabric to wear coming fall. Before, I begin, I just want to say congratulations to all of the winners who had won.

10 HandBags That are Timeless!

his is a great article on TheRichest.com! They have nailed it. These must-haves are a staple to have in your closet. I love the Prada Saffiano Bag, Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag, Dior Lady Bag, Fendi Baguette

20130625104959

 Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag 

First available in the 1930’s, this classic Louis Vuitton bag might be called a Speedy, but it’s hardly fast fashion. It has cowhide leather handles that darken with age. While the most well known Speedy is probably the most classic model made of logo canvas, Louis Vuitton has created the bag in a variety of styles and colors, from graffiti to more traditional leathers and new ones come out every season. The Speedy is a classic bag because it can be casual with jeans and a t-shirt and formal for an evening at the opera. It also looks proportional with every body type. The size and shape of the Speedy make it the perfect bag for every woman who needs to carry a lot of things with them.

Balenciaga Motorcycle Bag 

Although the brand was established in 1915, Balenciaga saw a resurgence in 2003, when Nicolas Ghesquière created the Motorcycle Bag exclusively for the fashion house’s runway show. Model Kate Moss fell in love with bag, Balenciaga then made it available for purchase and the rest is fashion history. A modern classic, the bags are made of a soft, very light, durable leather and come with leather framed mirrors and cell phone pockets. The zippers have a signature leather tassel pull. There are two hand straps fastened to the bags as well as a removable longer shoulder strap. Currently, the most expensive Motorcycle Bag is $2,045, but there are minis available for around $1,300.

Bottega Veneta Intrecciato 

Bottega Veneta is the Italian leather brand you recognize for it’s style, not it’s logo. Known for their artisanal simplicity, Bottega Veneta simply means Venetian Shop and not surprisingly the company’s slogan is “When Your Own Initials Are Enough.” Established in 1966, the company’s founders Vittorio and Laura Moltedo, developed a leather weaving technique called intrecciato, which has defined their signature style ever since. Intreccaito is used to make a wide variety of Bottega Veneta’s handbags and accessories, from clutches to weekenders. Currently, the Nero Nappy Vulcana Bag is available for $6,650, but equally stylish and less expensive shoulder bags are available in the $2,500 range.

Prada-Saffiano-Lux-Tote-2013-Collection

Prada Saffiano Bag

The House of Prada was founded in 1913, but did not become a household name until after 1978, when Miuccia Prada took over the company. Saffiano is treated leather that is embossed with a cross hatch pattern, which makes the bag more durable and increases scratch resistance as well as water resistance. Most importantly, saffiiano leather makes for gorgeous accessories. Saffiano bags have two handles and gold hardware, as well as the signature Prada gold upside down triangle logo. A celebrity favorite, actresses Hailee Steinfeld and Lindsay Lohan as well as singer Rihanna have all been spotted with the Prada Classic. Saffiano bags come in a variety of shapes from totes to minis, currently costing from $9,660 to around $1,700.

 

Image result for classic dior lady bag

Dior Lady Bag

A new classic, Christian Dior’s Lady bag was given as a gift to Princess Diana from the first lady of France, Bernadette Chirac. After the chic Princess was photographed with it, the bag was immediately named after her and has graced the forearms of the elegant and sophisticated ever since. Each bag is hand made and each cannage quilted square pattern is hand crafted and then fitted with either gold or silver hardware and a singature CD charm. While perhaps the most well-known Lady bag materials are patent leather and calfskin, but you can buy a python one for $11,800. However, non-leather mini Ladies start at around $1,200.

 

Gucci-Jackie-Original-GG-Canvas-Bag

 

The Gucci Jackie Bag

The Gucci Jackie Bag is another stunner than never goes out of style. Created in the late 1950’s for the bag’s namesake Jackie Kennedy Onassis, it has remained an accessory staple. It was even slightly redesigned and re-launched in 1999, but both the old and new Jackies are still avalable. The shoulder bag, which is actually quite comfortable, has the signature Gucci piston clasp. Handmade in Italy, it comes in many styles and materials. The most expensive Jackie Bag was sold for $20,400, but there are classic GG initial logo styles available for only $1,450. Like it’s namesake, the Jackie is sophisticated, but stunning.

The Fendi Baguette 

A modern classic, designed in 1997 by Silvia Venturini, the baguette was made to fit under the arm, like a French Baguette loaf. Ever since, there have been over a thousand different baguettes made of different materials from denim, to pony skin and crocodile. Perhaps the most famous Baguette belonged to fictional fashion icon Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and The City, when she was mugged for her purple sequin one. After the episode aired, fashionistas declared the Baguette, an It bag. A book was even published to commemorate the bag’s fifteenth anniversary. The most expensive Baguette was sold for $6,220, but prices start around $1,400.

 

2013-Hermes-Kelly-Bag

 

Hermès Kelly Bag

The Hermès Kelly Bag is the ultimate stays symbol. No other accessory has subtly screamed expensive quite the way the Kelly does. First introduced in 1892 as a saddle bag, the iconic accessory evolved and was ultimately named for princess Grace Kelly of Monaco, when it was given to her in 1954. It has been making women feel like princesses ever since. Handmade, these bags take between 18-25 hours to create. It is Hermès’ best selling bag of all time.

The most expensive Kelly Bag ever sold was auctioned for $125,000 in December 2013. It was a one of a kind known as the Geranium Porosus. However, most “starter” Kellys start at around $11,00.

Hermès Birkin Bag

Named for actress Jane Birkin, it was first created for her in 1984 when she sat next to Hermès executive Jean-Louis Dumas on an airplane and told him she was having trouble finding a good leather weekend bag. Dumas had the bag created for her based on a design from 1892. These bags, which are lined with goat skin leather and then made with a variety of leathers including calf skin, ostrich, lizard and crocodile, take approximately 48 hours to make by hand.

The most expensive Birkin Bag cost $120,00 and was made of crocodile with 18 carat gold hardware encrusted with diamonds. However, most Birkins start around $11,000.

The Chanel Flap Bag

The Chanel flap bag is the epitome of a classic handbag. It is simply designed and crafted. First introduced in 1955 by Coco Chanel herself, who was tired of carrying her purse in her hands and wanted something chic for her shoulders. It was slightly re-designed in 1983 by Karl Lagerfeld, who added the iconic CC clasp.

If you are considering purchasing one of these bags, do it sooner rather than later because the prices of these bags have been known to increase bi-annually. At any price, it is a worthwhile investment. The most expensive flap bag was sold for $261,000, but less expensive ones start at a more relatively affordable $2,200.

Timeless Designer Classics that You Must Have in Your Closet! Part 1

Valentino Patent Leather Rockstud Slingbacks in Blush C$1,370

 

PRADA Minimal Baroque Round Sunglasses C$365

 

 

Burberry THE SANDRINGHAM – LONG HERITAGE TRENCH COAT C$2,395

The Burberry trenchcoat was famously worn by British officers in WWI. Its original design was called the Tielocken and was designed to protect military officers against harsh weather. The D-shaped belt ring was used for attaching small items such as maps. Later the coat was modified for the masses. Since then it has remained the brand’s most recognizable piece. 

Chanel 2.55 C$7,075

The first bag that Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel designed in 1929 was a hand-carried, just like all other bags that were available to upper-class women during that era. However, it turned out to be an impossible task to combine the bag with a flûte champagne, theater leaflets and hors d’oeuvres. But in 1955 Coco Chanel changed handbag history with the introduction of the Chanel 2.55. It was modified for practical reasons. “I got fed up with holding my purses in my hands and losing them, so I added a strap and carried them over my shoulder,” The practical 2.55 was therefore immediately a great succes. In the first year Gabrielle Chanel even had to refuse orders because of the high demand. For the first time, it was acceptable for upper-class women to carry a bag on their shoulders. 

 

Louboutins

The story goes that Christian Louboutin’s red soles are inspired by his assistent. As she was painting her nails in a bright red color, Louboutin took the nail polish from her hands and began to paint the sole with the nailpolish. And so the bright red became the signature color of Louboutin. No other than the Princess of Monaco was his first real customer. The Princess unleashed a true rage on the red soles. The now famous Louboutins are worn by famous designers like Diane von Fürstenberg, and many celebrities.

In addition, the story of the red sole goes a little something like this: YSL and Louboutin were in court fighting to obtain the right to the trademark, as you can see Louboutin had won the lawsuit against YSL. YSL were and are unable to use this infamous trademark that is a signature of a Louboutin.

Hermes Birkin

In the 80’s Jane Birkin was seated next to Jean-Louis Dumas, the CEO of Hermès, on her flight from Paris to London. Jane was complaining that she never found the perfect weekend bag. Without knowing who he was, she described to Dumas what her dream bag would look like. Shortly after their meet-up, Jane Birkin received her personalized bag with a personal note. From that moment on the Birkin became the most recognized luxury handbag in the world. To receive one of these beauties, you now have to sign your name on a waiting list. That is just as high-in-demand this Birkin weekend handbag has become. It’s so in-demand, that even celebrities find themselves on the infamous Hermes Birkin wait lists with the hope of one day owning this ultra-exclusive bag. Birkin prices range from $10,500 to $150,000. My advice is to make sure you get warranty for the handbag. 

YSL Smoking Jacket

The introduction of ‘Le Smoking Tuxedo’ in 1966 was a turning point, allowing women to be feminine and masculine all at once. This was the first time women could acceptably wear a smoking jacket to dinner and other events. Whether worn with a t-shirt or with absolutely nothing underneath, this is a fashion staple that has withstood the test of time.

DvF Wrap Dress

Described by Vogue as a “sartorial symbol of women’s sexual liberation”, Diane von Fürstenberg’s classic jersey wrap dress became a classic fashion piece since it launched in 1972.  Fürstenberg explained to the Los Angeles Times in 1976: “Clothes have to reflect women’s liberation. Women today want versatile, simple, classic, comfortable, slimming clothes. This is the story of my success.”

Dior Ballet Skirt

After WWII fashion yearned for something more frivolous, colorful and playful. Christian Dior presented just that with the voluminous ballet skirt. It contributes to the 1947 creation of the New Look

The Chanel Suit

In 1923 Coco Chanel invited a small group of journalists to her salon to show her new collection. One of the items of this collection was the Chanel suit. However, the journalists were far from impressed by the suit. The tweed twinset barely got a mention in reviews. But after the WWII (more precisely in the 1950’s) she reintroduced the Chanel suit as we now know it. This time it was a grand succes and it became one of Chanel’s most iconic creations and has influenced many look-a-likes.

Dior Skyline Fall 2016 Makeup Collection!

This fall, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, has imagined a beauty look that plays with shadow and light as he celebrates the daring Dior woman driven to experiment; a woman enhanced by the Skyline collection featuring eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks and brow pencils inspired by the techniques of professional makeup artists. Facial contours are naturally sculpted, eyeshadows in autumnal colours bring out the eyes, while lips and nails take on shades of daring that evoke the bold lines of the Eiffel Tower, the timeless icon that inspired Peter Philips to create the Skyline collection.
