Okay, I'm back from vacation, and it was fabulous! We spent a whole week in Las Vegas, and here are my favorites (though it's not easy to choose when there's so much wonderful shopping!):
(1) Chloe Suede booties (but in slate gray):
I about died when I first saw pics of these, but in person these booties from the pre-fall collection are even better - and perhaps the most comfortable shoes that I've ever had on!!
(2) Tod's Media Messenger in Python, $3900.00 regularly, marked 40% off:
Though I was tempted, I didn't end up buying this bag - the python makes it oh so lux, but just not practical. You could only use this every now and then because python doesn't wear very well.
(3) 3.1 Phillip Lim Ruffled Mini dress:
As I'm sure you know from previous posts, Lim is one of my favorite designers - it's difficult to imagine that he could do any wrong. This particular dress is lovely in person, and actually fairly versatile - it can be worn as a dress or layered over skinny jeans. The version shown above is silk, but my pick was the cotton jersey version in white (it also comes in navy blue).
(4) Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap, black, $2650.00:
Before this trip, I didn't really think of myself as a Chanel person. I have some clothing, but the bags never really appealed to me. Then I tried out this lovely.lovely bag and have absolutely fallen in love. The high price means that I have to save a bit for it, but it will definitely come home with me one of these days!!
And last, but not least...
(5) Louis Vuitton Mono Musette GM:
One thing that I really wanted was a bag that I take to Seoul later this summer; something light, easy to carry, and with a long strap. And this bag is perfect! It's roomy enough for everything I'll need to carry and it can be worn as a shoulder bag or a sling.
