Trend Alert: Navy and Black

How chic is Nicole Richie? It’s hard to imagine this fashion designer mama of two once played Paris’ sidekick. What was the name of that show again?

What’s at the end of the rainbow? It’s not a pot of gold. It’s something better: Kotur! Inspired by the art and design attitudes of the 1950s, Fiona Kotur looked to the Robert Indiana’s sign paintings and Memphis’ Lansky Brothers, the famed tailors who fashioned Elvis’ signature look.

Kate Spade New York Charlotte Olympia Bag

Growing up, I awaited the close of each meal at my family’s favorite Chinese restaurants for those damn cookies, believing they held the keys to my future.
