Coveted Deeply

Five picks of things I’m coveting deeply.

Coveted Deeply

[1] I have quite a few coats, from pea coats to leather jackets to trenches, and I love each and every one of them. The full skirt and cinched waist on this Azzedine Alaia princess coat makes it outwear I wouldn’t want to take off inside. Perhaps the Duchess of Cambridge would be a fan of the silhouette, it’s regal and a little bit sexy.

[2] Vintage Chanel can make just about every fashion loving girl swoon, case in point – this WGACA Vintage Chanel watch. Thinking about slipping this on by itself or with a stack of leather and beaded bracelets gives me chills. It’s a work of art.

[3] When I was younger, my mother couldn’t get me into a bra without padding, and now that I’ve got a pair of DD boobs, I’m always on a never-ending search for the opposite. The neon green french lace on this bra from Deborah Marquit is exactly that kind of bra.

[4] I’ve got an obsession with chandeliers, whether its earrings or the ones that hang from the ceiling. The Lambent Sphere Chandelier is sort of ethereal and woodland-y. I imagine it hanging in my living room, with the sparkle of crystal combated by the iron hand-wiring.

[5] While Yankee Doodle stuck a feather in his hat and called it macaroni, I much prefer the ring that this Eugenia Kim Hunter Green Lauren Velour Felt Hat has to it. It’s a fedora with just enough masculine authority and a little bit or nursery rhyme zing to polish off any ensemble, especially if your pairing it with my new favorite jacket (see [1])

Getting the Look: Blake Lively at the Chanel Event Hosted by Lagerfeld in Her Honor

Getting the Look: Blake Lively

She may not be my favorite Gossip Girl, but having Karl Lagerfeld throw a party in your honor during Paris Fashion Week to commemorate you being named the face of the Mademoiselle Chanel handbag line makes Blake Lively one of the luckiest ladies alive. André Leon Talley’s given us his account of the evening, that boasted a menu of langoustines and caviar, along with delectable macaroons from Ladurée (yumm!).  The girl has a pair of Christian Louboutin’s named after her, but nothing compares to being outfitted in a silver haute couture Chanel minidress, and having Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine attend and perform at your request.
