I’ve giving huge props to Lupita Nyong’o this morning (and pretty much every other morning, but this one in particular!). Last night she was the coolest chick at the MTV Movie Awards, proving the actress knows how to dress for a fun event like this just as well as she dressed for the Oscars.
We’re taking April showers pretty seriously around here, with not one, not two, not even three, but four prizes to give away this month! Each week, we’ll reveal a different bag from pre-owned accessories purveyor LUXE DH, offering four chances to win (though you can only take home one).
Start the week out right with a dramatic mani! Personally, I’m having a red moment, and Chanel’s Le Vernis Pirate shade was just the cherry hue I was craving. The formulas for some brands dry nails out, but Chanel’s moisturizes and strengthens, especially when you apply a strong base coat first (which will also prevent your nails from getting stained red).
While I consider myself both a Bag Snob and a Food Snob, I never thought the two would come together in quite this way. The results are hit or miss. Chanel, for one, did the gourmand well with steaks that were probably the most imaginative bags we’ve seen from the brand in years. I also fell for Nancy Gonzalez’s handwoven croc wicker apples and pineapples.
I bought four totes while I was at Paris Fashion Week. I’m an avid mini bag fan, but once I realized that I couldn’t even fit so much as an invitation in, the hunt for the perfect tote began. Who better for inspiration than some of the most fashionable women in the world? Take Emma Watson’s Spring 2014 Dior Addict – the look is classic with a twist, courtesy of python straps.
Nobody understands the importance of showmanship as well as Karl Lagerfeld. For Fall 2014, he took us to market, and the once-in-a-lifetime Chanel Shopping Center experience was one that left all attendees reeling. Strolling into the Costco-sized big-box market made for a surreal moment, one that made me wonder to myself (and I was not alone!), “Where am I?”
