Coveted Deeply

Five picks of things I’m coveting deeply.

Coveted Deeply

[1] Is it too early to start thinking about what I’d like to ring in the new year with? Perhaps a bottle of Veuve Clicquot or Dom Perignon and this adorable scalloped tiger skirt from Timo Weiland.  It’s a little Blair Waldorf with a little edge and maybe that’s why I love it so much, but it’s definitely on my birthday/Christmas list this year.

[2] I’m heading to Paris in a matter of weeks and if any brand knows the city of lights it’s Louis Vuitton (and Chanel of course). They’ve got guides for quite a few of the fashion capitals around the world, and the Louis Vuitton City Guide 2011 features 600 addresses that embody the essence of Paris. A few Audrey Hepburn films, a Gossip Girl episode, and a Louis Vuitton City Guide later and I’ll have the perfect Parisian getaway planned to perfection.

[3] I own the Manta Ray bangle, it’s positively stunning and it’s created a sort of obsession with the Alkemie line. The Starfish ring is next on my must have list, and I’m looking to collect all the animalistic cast in the Alkemie collection. They’re simple, but gorgeous – and happen to be socially and environmentally responsible; each piece is made from 100% reclaimed metal, hand crafted in Los Angeles.

[4] My penchant for odd little pendants continues, from Jessics de Lotz Jewellery, the Red Relished Resin Apple Necklace is quirky and that’s just the way I like it. Perhaps it’s the apple Snow White ate, or the forbidden fruit, but somehow this ravished apple is sexy and dark.

[5] From my fingernails to my feet, wine is one of my favorite shades for Fall, and booties are one of those fall necessities. These Proenza Schouler Lace-up booties in wine suede are luxurious and provocative. Not to mention, the 4.5 inch heel makes them sort of bearable for the New York City streets that seem to be ripping my feet and my favorite heels to shreds.

Five picks of things I’m coveting deeply.

Coveted Deeply

[1] I love bustiers, corsets or whatever you want to call them. They’re great under a blazer or paired with a barely there mini skirt, and if it’s one thing I’m glad for it’s the fact that unlike the women of the sixteenth century, I don’t have to crack my ribs or sacrifice my breathing for them. The mix of grey, light blue, dark blue, and black on the Preen Line Floral Zoe cropped bustier has the sort of cross between seductive structure and flirty spirit that I love.

[2] This sandstone stone in this ring looks like the night sky, I love it’s twilight aura, but it’s almost black hue makes it edgy yet pure. The prismatic facets lend dimension to the flecks of glitter that resemble stars, it’s the perfect little understated statement cocktail ring. I seriously can’t stop staring at this Lola Rose Sonia ring, it’s almost perverse.

[3] Louis Vuitton’s signature luggage pieces have these gorgeous engraved accents to accompany the signature LV monogram and this cuff captures all of that in a piece I can tote around effortlessly. The Louis Vuitton Save It bracelet possesses the air of Parisian style that first made their luggage famous, but there’s something more about it that I can’t quite grasp that makes me want it even more.

[4] I love this palette, it kind of looks like a face painting kit, probably because the colors are just as potent. I’m well versed in the art of face painting with Snazaroo paints, but the fact of the matter is I have infinitely more fun getting dolled up with this Make Up For Ever 12 Flash Color palette than I do drawing butterflies on little girls’ faces.

[5] I’m a sucker for bright colors, and this flaming orangey-redness of this bag, Zara is always good for finding what I like to call true fashion pieces like this, the aptly named Fashion City bag. The color is so strong it’s bound to stop people in their tracks, but that’s probably the point, it’s too gorgeous to be passed on the street without as much as a second or third glance. I’d also like to get it in the deep blue and maybe even the tan.

Louis Vuitton Launches Amble App

Louis Vuitton Amble App

The first question that comes to mind is – What exactly does a Louis Vuitton App do? Louis Vuitton’s codename ‘amble’ traditionally means ‘to stroll’. The Amble app launches an interactive version of their city guides, perfect for expeditions into amazing cities like Tokyo, Paris, NYC etcetera. Finding your way around a new city never seemed so easy. Unlock the infinite wisdom of the Louis Vuitton City Guides and share your travels, favorite locales, nightlife activities and more with friends via email, facebook and twitter.

The Amble App is now available on iTunes. This app almost has me lamenting being on team BlackBerry.
