Remember the Luxe List series where I would feature items way out of my budget? Yeah well I’m back at it. There’s nothing wrong with coveting some amazing pieces from designers you know aren’t in your price range. It’s better to love from afar rather than spending money you don’t have on clothes you don’t really need lol. Ok I’m getting off of my soap box now. Check out this month’s feature.

Which items are you loving from a distance?

One of my favorite color combinations for the holiday season is Red and Gold. Both colors provide an element of luxe. Whether you stick with metallics or go with sequins red and gold will definitely make you the center of attention. For this installment of the Luxe List I was inspired by a particular pair of Charlotte Olympia pumps

Check out the bells. I mean I can see myself jingling at any party lol. So here are a few items to inspire your red and gold holiday.

The black and white trend is still going strong and the “rule” no white after labor day has completely gone out of the window for many celebs and fashionistas. Sass & Bide “Much Adored” Peplum skirt does just that, break all of the rules.

sassbideRetailing at $390, this skirt is described as a fitted mini skirt with bell shaped petersham lattice cage that created a 3d dimensions.


So rock it or drop it? 

So if I happened to have a about $15,000 randomly laying around and I didn’t have any bills I’d probably buy these Giuseppe Zanotti booties for the fall.

Giuseppe Zanotti is one brand that remains consistent and fashion forward. The shoe designs are sleek and eye catching. I’m sure celebs like June Ambrose, Angela Simmons, Kelly Rowland, and Lala Anthony are already stocking their closets with these here.

Would you rock any of these booties for the fall?


Who doesn’t love a good discount, especially on designer goods? I don’t think anyone would pass on scoring Dolce & Gabbana, Philosophy, Valentino, or Moschino at 30-65% off. The Loehmann’s Italian Event has your name written all over it and I have the exclusive behind the scenes scoop on what you can expect on February 27, 2013 at Loehmann’s.




Last week I got to tour the 400,000 Sq. Ft. distribution center. I was in Italian heaven viewing all of the pieces that would be available during the Italian Event. The buyers for Loehmann’s Italian event have built close connections with the designer warehouses in Italy where they travel several times a year to select the best pieces in apparel, shoes, handbags, and accessories for the Loehmann’s customers.
