928d334bb0c50b48_goyard_computer_casexxlargeI can’t live without my MAC which is why I love my Macbook…it’s lightweight, does everything my desktop can, and even though it’s not the shiny new silver one, I still love it and honestly…I’m partial to the old school white ones!!

With such a sleek and stylish laptop, I can’t be expected to put it into one of those dorky, computer cases that they sell at Office Depot, so I’ve been searching for just the right case to carry my laptop in.  I saw this Goyard case in the January issue of Vogue and instantly fell in loooooooove, but the $830 price tag killed my crush.

Way OTK Boots at Rodarte

rodarteLeave it to sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the women behind Rodarte to show us some of the boldest and most daring footwear to ever be seen during any New York Fashion week!  This kind of footwear/hoisery (?) is something I would expect to see at the couture shows in Paris but these girls never fail to bring it and I’m dying over these thigh-high, leather, bondage, multi-strapped, creations!  I doubt they will ever acutally make it into production, but they’re inspiring and over the top and isn’t that what Fashion Week is all about anyway??

Click here to check out the rest of their show!

Um, yes please…I’ll take all of them…and especially that claw cuff!  Her pieces were not only featured in the New York Times, countless editorials, and in a recent slew of Gap ads (adorning the wrist and ears of Carine Roitfield’s daughter), but they were also spotted this weekend on the runway at the Yigal Azrouel show!!!

Alexander Wang: Fall 2009

So this bag isn’t even out yet and MKO is already carrying it!!  I hate her…no I actually heart her and I’m just being a green little monster.  

Anyway, this studded masterpiece is from Wang’s upcoming Fall collection so I expect to see many other fabulous accessories during his “presentation” next week!!

Social-ize

I became a huge fan of Thread when I was looking for un-bridesmaid looking dresses for my wedding last year. I wanted something that was pretty and that my girls could easily wear again…not to mention, something that reflected their own personal style. I looked high and low for designs that were wearable, flattering, beautiful and most importantly, fashion forward, but the only company I found that actually fit the bill was Thread.

I was in their shop and I remember coming across dresses that would have been perfect for my rehearsal dinner and wishing they made dresses for non-bridesmaids…well, the girls behind the company were already way ahead of me. In 2006, Melissa Akey and Beth Blake launched a collection of RTW dresses called Thread Social and I was completely smitten! I love that they design with a woman in mind and that I can wear all of their dresses to ANY event and feel like the belle of the ball…too bad I can only afford their designs at sample sale prices, but that doesn’t change the fact that I eagerly anticipate seeing their latest collection!

Here’s the latest installment from Thread Social for Spring 2009:

Please bring me these Christian Louboutin Armdillo Striped d’Orsay’s in a size 36 because they were clearly designed with a Texas girl (me) in mind!
