…I left for LA and disappeared into a cloud of FOG…
that’s what it feels like…
I arrived in LA and for 8 days -and nights until 11pm when everything closed- …I shopped LA Market Week as well as ALL the
vaguely interesting stores, department stores and markets in LA…I devoured the fashion, the newness, the cool people who dress soo freely, bohemian and understated…the individuality (not many sheep here!!)…the friendliness and the camaraderie amongst the fashion buyers… I met Raquel Allegra -a personal highlight as I just adore her designs!- and fell in Love with Orduna Designs (www.ordunadesigns.com)…her hand made jewelry is just too beautiful and poetic…I can just see her soul poured in every piece- I love that! …Oh and all the wonderful products that we don’t have here and that I just wish I could stock -I NEED a BIGGER store!!-. On most days I forgot to eat… and ONLY fashion does that to me!…nothing else can hold my attention for so long and intensely to make ME forget about FOOD…
Oh Barneys…Barneys as well as Opening Ceremony and Fred Segal…it was just too much for me!! I could have slept there and had a ball for days on end- without food! …Oh I also fell in love with Alexander Wang! His shoes especially are just magic!!
So now I’m back and I’ve had to digest it all…and most of all recover from a bad bad bad jet lag… dunno why it hit me so bad…probably because I slept so little in LA!
I’ve finally had a chance to spend time on my favorite blogs and scour some new ones for that LA feeling…
Ohhh how I fell in love with MOTHER jeans!! They are just the way I like them! …supersoft and yet they hold you in and just very flattering in all the best colors!! Can’t wait to get them in!!
just beautiful and perfect!!
Gonna bring back some awesome pieces and hopefully soon after start the online shop!!
…Anna Anna Anna…you make us dream of fashion…you are fashion, the queen of all and always an inspiration!! I love you because you take fashion serious ly…but not yourself! A genius!

“Last night we celebrated theCHRISTMAS in Dolce&Gabbana’s house.
It was a memorable night!WE looked like a huge,extended, modern FAMILY.
Me and Giovanna wore the exclusivepreview of the s/s 2011DOLCE&GABBANA collection:
white hope chest & furry boots!
On the top of all I put a vintage CHERRY-COATfrom Dolce&Gabbana 90’s Collection.
I looked like Santa Claus of fashion”Anna
…its certainly not what they wear… but they just are.. ZEF
this is why I love America!!
…throw a warm sweater over your evening dress…!! I love it!! I love Taylor Tomasi!! She ALWAYS gets it right!!
here a glimpse of the everyday life of the “it” bloggers of the moment… it’s one fashion show and subsequent fashion party after the other…reinventing themselves every time and inspiring the rest of us who have more to think about than what to wear today… I am glad “they” are there for us as for they give me my daily fashion fix…something to dream about (…oh I wish I could travel around the world gong to one fashion show after the other but with two little kids this one is gonna have to wait!)…and more inspiration than any magazine can provide as what they give is fashion in the raw and now!
Danni and Bryanboy at 20 years of Dolce Gabbana Uomo
Danni from Chicmuse and the ever fabulous Anna Dello Russo …clearly she is very much into the lace look at the mo and only she can pull off that well!
the bootie is here to stay! …open toe or closed toe we’ll see many more versions..this one by Alaia is superb and look comfy too!
Karla from http://karlascloset.blogspot.com (here pictured with her stylish boyfriend) is another stylish blogger whose style I admire, especially her commitment to high heels! I just always prefer comfort over style…
I love this midriff bearing dress with the open back..simple luxury..
Hanneli from http://www.hanneli.com/ shows us her take on what to wear this summer…
..jeans..soft pinks and lots of nudes..
here the SS2010 Stella collection…not soo much my style but I love the colors!
but this…this BALMAIN combo I love! and I’m totally mad about the pants!! Glad Danny only got to use them for the shoot as it would have been a bit too much to bare had she been given them!!
just hot hot hot!!
PS- Patrizia Pepe has some of the best fitting leather pants I’ve ever tried! Come try them on at our new store in Hyde Park!
