FOG

 

 

…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…

 
















Paris Je t’Aime Mon Amour !



Ohhh how I fell in love with MOTHERĀ  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!!

 

much love
