Itty Bitty It Bags

Gucci Spring 2015 Collection pieces are everywhere.  Suede horse bits of deliciousness are peppered through the pages of magazines, both editorial and advertisements.  Ironic considering this was Frida Giannini’s final collection before being ushered rather quickly out the back door,  (Click here for more on that).

But I digress…

The really exciting sugar cube from the home of the sexy Italian horsebit is the Itty Bitty It bag.  Specifically the Lady Web, a mini chestnut suede shoulder bag with the iconic green & red strap.

Fun fact!  Did you know the original 1950’s green & red Gucci strap used on loafers and bags was created after the underbelly girth in a horse’s saddle.

One quick stop at the Prada Soho boutique and Cupid did his dirty work on me!
Paris Fashion Week officially fermè-d yesterday, and Miu Miu delivered a thunderously significant show.

Perhaps the cutest bolt of thunder was the itty bitty Miu Miu IT Bags.  File the Top Handle Bag under “ICANTEVEN!”

Snowy Happy Valentine!

Rainbows are not black and white.

Winter shouldn’t be either.  Color is an instant form of happiness.

Companies even study color to see how it influences our shopping – click here for more on that cool fact!

Winter 2014 is a wicked long cold one, no argument (as this posts yet another storm is spanking New England).

Tickled Hot Pink!

Hot Pink is the new black!

Literally, it is THE color of Fall 2013.

Stella knows it  (click here for Stella McCartney’s website)

Brian Atwood knows it (click here to be taken to Brian Atwood’s website aka Shoe Heaven!)

Acne knows it (click here to be taken to ACNE, mild obsession for reversecommuter!!!!)

Alexander (all hail!!!) McQueen has it locked in with a bootie that will make you NUTSO!!!!!!!! (click the blue to be taken to Alexander McQueen)

More importantly, Michael Kors (and reversecommuter) knew it in Spring 2012…..

(that is my dress) and now all I have to do is find the perfect black patent platform pumps to update it for Fall!

Designer Geese and Wheatgrass

It gets really cold in Canada.  I recently experienced a little taste of that myself up in Toronto.  So it makes perfect sense that the Canadians have a niche on gorgeous snow gear!

Canada Goose (yup, that is the name of the company) designs these phenomenal down filled, fur hooded bombers.  Hello Bright Pink, I think you could help me like winter more!

There are also fur trimmed hats, lighter weight spring / fall jackets and there is even a children’s’ line…TOO CUTE!

During my trip to Toronto I hit the St. Lawrence Market – an absolute not-to-miss if you are ever up there.  There are over a hundred vendors, screaming their lungs out trying to get your business.  Cheese mongers, butchers, olive oil shops, seafood shops, fruits and vegetables, you eat it they sell it there, and have been selling it there since 1803!

Whenever I go to the market I hit the mouth watering St Urbain Bagels (OMG TOOO DELISH FOR WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and grab a fresh shot of wheatgrass (that green is SO the green a lot of designers have used this Spring, don’t you think?)
