Louis Vuitton Damier Aventure Practical

S000M9705700Z0 M frame0000 Louis Vuitton Damier Aventure Practical

Functional, lightweight and versatile, the Damier Aventure Practical is truly a practical travel companion. It is inspired by the active lifestyle coordinating with the clothes from the Spring/Summer 2011 ready-to-wear collection.

Practical is crafted from super light nylon material with calfskin leather trims, silver colored zipper pulls and plastic hardware. It’s also very roomy. The bag features a couple of pockets both on its exterior and interior, has an adjustable shoulder strap and handles with fabric patches to make hand carrying much more comfortable. The neatest feature of the Practical would be that when it’s not in use or if you’re carrying it while traveling, the bag can be folded up and tucked away into it’s interior pocket. The bag would then be just a nice and tiny pouch ‘pocket’ which has the Articles de Voyage insignia printed on it. I’m really liking this bag, it’s sporty and very low maintenance. You could just throw your stuff in it and just fold it up when not in use. It’s really neat!

Damier Aventure Practical comes in two colors, Bleu and Graphite. It measures 23.2″ x 11.8″ x 11.8″ or kind of a bit bigger than a Keepall 55. It will be available at Louis Vuitton stores within this week for US$1070.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF IT’S WORKING?

Very quickly done FOTD from last weekend. Recently I quite like wearing stuff I’m not sure works. Open toed clogs and tights? 70s prairie dress to a post-Christmas Christmas party? Something to amuse myself thinking about. (Sorry about the white balance! I got GIMP and I’m working on it, I swear.)

This on-trend sneaker boot is entirely covered with a graphic star pattern and combines the street inspiration of a bold velcro strap with the vintage hint of graphic white trimmings.

If you want it, make sure to call your local Louis Vuitton store and ask them to inform you once stock arrives!

Tory Burch Tory Canvas Tote

Tory Burch Tory Canvas Tote

Tory Burch Tory Canvas Tote

I stumbled across this Tory Burch Tory Canvas Tote while browsing Saks.com and I really think it has a place in my closet.  Olive green has become one of my signature colors due to my mild obsession with camo prints.  I also love certain shades of purple and pink, so this bag seems like the logical choice. It features striped webbed cotton handles and a leather emblem on the front, one inside zip pocket, and two inside open pockets.  The only thing keeping me from pre-ordering this bag right now is the lack of a wow factor.  I want more oomph!  What do you think – purchase or pass?

W1297320720892707 4 US Vogue March 2011   Lady Gaga

I’m a big Lady Gaga fan and you have no idea how happy I am to see her in the cover of Vogue’s March issue! It’s one of my favorite celebrity Vogue covers to date as Gaga’s personality really shines through. I love it!

The cover and cover story was shot by Mario Testino and styled by Tonne Goodman. On the cover, Gaga wears a stunning Haider Ackermann dress, and in her editorial, she wears a couple of Alexander McQueen dresses, Hussein Chalayan, and Louis Vuitton (pictured above). Check out the cover and the entire cover story in the gallery below.

Fendi is known for some wild and off beat designs, so it came as no surprise to see the Fendi Striped Beaded Baguette listed under Neiman’s “What’s New: Fashion Extremes” section. It features multicolor beaded stripes with green ayers snakeskin accents and golden hardware with an adjustable shoulder strap. It’s priced at $2,470 and available for pre-order.  I can’t decide how I feel about this one… What do you think?

A SWEET NATURAL EYE TO THE NEW HIP MOON




I realised I don’t have any opera on my blog, though I studied it for a while. I took voice lessons, travelled around performing like some teenage minstrel, and even went to those camps in the mountains where you sing for 7 hours a day. Completely hardcore. So it made me really love classical and opera music.


[Music: Sumi Jo singing "Oh! Quante Volte" from the opera I Capuletti ed I Montecchi by Vincenzo Bellini. The opera is basically the story of Romeo and Juliet, and this song is about how sad Juliet is and how much she misses Romeo, etc.]


Also, although the words Lola Re, Stockholm and February do not belong in the same sentence, I am still excited about Stockholm Fashion Week A/W 11 (I’ll probably go again in August like last year).


So don’t worry. There’s nothing more exciting in this world than Swedish clothes and Allen Ginsberg quotes and baby, that’s what you’ll be getting from me over the next few weeks. And Copenhagen too.
