They have a cool website, it’s very easy to navigate and the pictures are clear! During my searches for some lovely top to go with my new leggings. I’ve spotted a reasonably priced “BAT SHAPED BUTTERFLY PRINT TOP”. Anyway, It is only £28.00.. pretty good huh?! Yays for PINK! Gotta have!!

Louis Vuitton Tambour Répétition Minutes

Repetition minutes white gold fond Louis Vuitton Tambour Répétition MinutesTambour Répétition Minutes in White Gold Tambour XL (44mm), Black Alligator Strap, LV 178 Calibre Mechanical movement

Minute repeater watches have always been considered by well-versed collectors as the mechanical benchmark in terms of horology craftsmanship. Rather than a long metaphysical discussion of this time- keeper that gives the time in music and allows the second of our five senses to appreciate temporality, here are three points summarising what you need to know about the queen of complications.

Striking watches are said to have been invented by Daniel Quare (1649–1724), a brilliant and meticulous English watchmaker. It is also reported that Thomas Mudge, another Englishman who was active between 1738 and 1794, invented the mechanism, allowing a quarter repeater watch already featuring two gongs to sound the minutes. This was made possible thanks to the introduction of an additional rack and a wheel with four leaves, each with 14 steps. This star wheel, indexed to the hour wheel of the minute wheel, features a microscopic mechanism known as a “surprise”, in addition to its 14 teeth or shrouds (one per minute). Its purpose is to prevent the watch from striking again 14 times or just once on the hour.

The aim of a mechanism of this kind was to provide the time without the need to consult the dial. In other words, it was now possible to know what time it was without having to take the timepiece out of your pocket, thereby clearly showing your boredom. Later, when it became customary for people to gather together in closer quarters, watchmakers invented à tact and à toc watches. Their mechanisms gave the time through vibrations rather than sound in response to this new social issue.

Throughout the 19th century and until the invention of the train, coach watches chimed out the hours when the half-light made it impossible to read the watch’s dial.

From the minute repeater to drum rolls

This watch, dedicated to Epicureans and aesthetes who take a different approach to travelling at large, has a rare strength drawn from the close ties that it enjoys with watchmaking history and expertise.

The minute repeater is considered by experts in the art to be one of the most sophisticated complications. Over and above this aura unlike any other, the Tambour Minute Repeater has a little something extra that makes it stand out from traditional minute repeater watches.

In order to express its passion for travel, beautiful workmanship and high-class mechanisms, La Fabrique du Temps Louis Vuitton has created a Tambour watch incorporating this subtle complication combined with a useful read mode for globetrotters.

Keen to offer the best of watchmaking to connoisseurs of fine mechanics, Louis Vuitton has created a travel minute repeater watch whose dial displays the time of the place where the traveller finds themselves, along with that of their place of origin (home time) in the window at the centre of the dial.

And because the strength of art increases with use, the manually wound calibre, protected by its gold case that is watertight to 30 metres, and visible through the dial and the transparent back, chimes the home time rather than the time displayed large by the hands. With this Tambour, the notes give time a more sensitive and personal dimension, whether the watch is moving or still (100-hour power reserve). And because luxury only has meaning when it is unique, the Tambour watch in white, rose or yellow gold is available on special order and can be customised on request. Accordingly, each Tambour Minute Repeater watch can be personalised with your initials, crest or an element in relief, replacing the number 4 under the lightly smoked sapphire glass dial.

Home Time

The Louis Vuitton Tambour Minute Repeater sets a new standard in travel high watchmaking, featuring an ultra-sophisticated chiming movement that tells your Home Time and a second time zone that works in a simple and elegant way just by adjusting the crown. Even when this is set, you can still see your Home Time by a glance at the special central disc.

When you travel, pulling the crown out to position 1 allows you to set the hour hand on the main dial to indicate the second time zone – local time. The hand jumps from one hour to the next – forward or back- wards – as you adjust it, making it easy to count the number of hours that you want, ahead or behind. Not only does the disc at the centre of the watch remain on your Home Time, indicating the hour in your own city, but you can also lift the lever on the side of the case to hear the time at home in a beautiful musical chime. Wherever you are in the world, this a personal reminder of home and family.

When you return home and want to set the main dial to show the Home Time again, pull the crown out to position 2. When you adjust the hour and minute hands they now glide smoothly, as does the day-night indicator and the central disc. Now the main and central dials indicate the same time, working in harmony with the repeater chimes. When you travel again, pull the crown out to position 1 and the process begins anew.

Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013 at New York Fashion Week Runway!

Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013 wowed the crowd at New York Fashion Week Runway with bold black and white , stripes, monochrome, grays and short hemlines. Compared to last year collection, the 2013 fashion show’s decor was more minimalist - “The main inspiration this season is the t-shirt,” explained Marc Jacobs backstage at his show.

Here’s a little bit info about the fashion designer, Marc Jacobs.

Marc Jacobs (born April 9, 1963) is an American fashion designer. He is the head designer for Marc Jacobs, as well as Marc by Marc Jacobs, a diffusion line, with more than 200 retail stores in 80 countries. He has been the creative director of the French design house Louis Vuitton since 1997. Jacobs is on Time Magazine’s “2010 Time 100″ list of the 100 most influential people in the world,[1] and ranked 12th on Out Magazine’s 2011 list of “50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America”. (wikipedia.org)

One the other hand, the models seemed “no emotions” at all. But as always Jacobs did a fantastic job for making the dull colors looked GREAT!  I can see this trends coming soon. What do you think of Jacobs latest collection?

Below are my favorite looks from Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013.

Louis Vuitton Fashion Jewelry Fall/Winter 2012 Collection

FJ Louis Vuitton Fashion Jewelry Fall/Winter 2012 Collection

The new Louis Vuitton Fashion Jewelry collection reinterprets the Maison’s signatures in precious and playful fashion accessories.

Louis Vuitton’s cult themes are given unprecedented expression. The hinge and the famous S-Lock clasp, a precious legacy from the iconic trunks, are displayed in a silver-plated finish on a black lacquer resin bracelet and ring. Resin bracelets are crafted in multi-coloured guilloché metal or in tortoiseshell style. The collar and cuff – today’s must-haves – shine brilliantly.

The Maison’s tribute to Art Deco, a multi-strand necklace in graphic lines adorned here and there with metallic tassels, shiny spheres and other cubes inlaid with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystals offers a thirties’ look for evening.

In a nod to the Damier motif, a grey and white resin bead necklace closed with a velvet bow is also available as a ring, earrings or brooch for a decidedly fifties style.

Through this new collection, all the know-how of French and Italian craftsmen is applied to an alchemy of materials and textures to beautifully enhance long necklaces, rings and delicate bracelets.

Moody Blues: How to Wear One of The Hottest Fall Colors

If you’re feeling blue this fall, consider it a good thing. Cobalts, teals, ceruleans and royal blues reigned supreme on the autumn/winter catwalks.  The varying levels of blue this season are striking, opulent and incredibly chic.  For a quick rundown on how to take the trend from the runway to your closet, here’s a guide on the top four shades of blue we fell in love with this collection season.

Royal Blue – Perhaps the most glamorous tone on the color wheel, royal blue dominated the catwalks of Stella McCartney, Chanel, John Galliano and Prabal Gurung. The clever mixing of blue and black was a stunning contrast to otherwise basic wardrobe staples, such as pencil skirts, blazers and fitted trousers.

Teal – Long ago, we used to have a thing for teal and then, it got a bad rap. But this fall, designers took teal out of the nineties and spun the rich hue into a more modernized version using a variety of fabrics to showcase the deep, inky undertone of the once beloved color.  Playing up the romance factor, teal was shown in draped satin gowns, velvet trousers, plush cashmere car coats and jeweled chiffon cocktail dresses.

Cobalt – It’s safe to say cobalt blue packs quite a punch whenever it’s worn.  The vibrant shade is an excellent choice against the backdrop of the darker, duller colors of fall. If you want to try out the cobalt trend, opt for colored jeans, school-girl inspired satchels, cashmere sweater dresses or textured nubby knits.

Cerulean – You might remember the infamous scene in The Devil Wears Prada where Meryl Streep’s character, Miranda Priestly, blasts the lowly Andie Sachs about her description of “this stuff”. Well, cerulean was the star of that conversation then and it’s back again to prove it has staying power. This time around it was presented on a monochromatic platform, delivered in sportswear and intermixed into vintage brocade prints.

There’s always room for another good one!

September is almost over and we know that prom season is sliding fast. It is usually held in the ball season of January–February, but recently sometimes also before Christmas. I love the fashion of the Prom Dresses, all the lovely gowns for the ball party.  The dress is always the center piece in this event and you will expect to see a lot of stunning dresses and definitely some gorgeous designer dresses.

It can be frustrating a lot of times for the girls to look for a great stores to shop as there are a lot of websites selling dresses on the internet but there is always room for another good one.  I came across this site called Misses Dressy and the first thing I found is the  Jovani collection that would just knock everyone eyes out. I am not exaggerating but seriously they have a wide selection of dresses to choose from for different occasions  and all are to die for!  I just want almost everything on there! MisseyDressy is sooo cool! So if you have something special coming up then I would definitely suggest checking their website! They’re very promising to provide fashionable dresses at reasonable prices. Once, you found the dress that you love then the rest should be simple, such as make up, hair and your prom shoes. Accessories can do magic too so make sure to wear your best jewelry to your style.

These are my favorites, as you can see they are so fab! So check it out and give this site a look over.
