Balmain Resort 2015 Collection: Goin’ Back to Cali

If there were ever a collection that seemed to be curated entirely for me, this is it. Narcissism aside, my deep affinity for Balmain stems not only from the brilliant interpretations Olivier Rousteing produces each season, but from the artisanal craft coming forth from each and every, single piece.

Denim on Denim: Snob or Slob?

Denim on denim at one point used to be a fashion faux-pas. The Canadian tuxedo seems to be becoming a celeb trend as the weather warms up…is it cutting-edge snob or still Slob? You decide.

Balmain Fall 2014 Collection

Balmain Fall 2014 Collection: She Can’t Be Tamed

Never underestimate the power of a Balmain woman. Or designer Olivier Rousteing, for that matter. While Fall 2014 welcomes a most relaxed collection from Olivier, the sense of confidence is just as potent as ever, proving that power does not lie in the cut of a dress or jacket. It’s all in the spirit.

Firenze4Ever with Luisa via Roma: Part One

Touted as the Oscars of the digital fashion world, FIRENZE4EVER is a three-day global fashion event like no other. My fifth time attending as host Luisa via Roma’s guest brought me once again to the most magical city in Italy.

Barneys Sale: Bag Bargains of the Week!

I imagine you have plans tonight, but they might need to be pushed back because Barneys is having a sale! Tons of great designers are up to 40% off, including Saint Laurent, Maiyet, and the Row. Yes, THE ROW! Need I say more??

Best Party Clutches: My Clutch Likes to Party All the Time

When I think party, I think Luisa via Roma. The Florence-based site throws the best biannual party, so it’s only logical they carry the most amazing evening clutches (and everything else, for that matter) for the party season.

From Kelly’s Napa Valley wine tour to Tina’s Paris Fashion Week trip, the Snobs have been staying busy. See where they’ve been traveling to and what they’ve been picking up along the way (those Balmain booties!)…

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2014 Roundup

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2014 Roundup: Balmain, Roland Mouret, and Maiyet

My main reason for coming to Paris this week was to work on an exciting collaboration with Cartier. I didn’t attend many shows the first few days, but I’ve been catching up via showroom re-sees – which is almost just as fun as the shows because I get to see the ready-to-wear, bags, and shoes up-close and personal. Paris Fashion Week is always a mixed bag of chic surprises and brilliant takes on femininity, and Spring 2014 is no exception.
