Last week on The Rachel Zoe Project, Brad compared being at Oscar's show to being in Paris... which is why I am more than honored to be in attendance this year. Earlier this year I got to visit the lovely people at the ODLR offices and saw some of the gowns in person, and I will tell you this- no one does it like Oscar de la Renta.

As I was working this weekend, these photos showed up in my gmail account. I have been speechless ever since. Chloe's Fall/Winter children's collection is available. Hannah MacGibbon: it- is- amazing.

Really looking forward to seeing his show this year. If there is anyone I hope to work with this next year- It's him. Fingers crossed.

in my bag

I have been seeing alot of posts on blogs and in magazines featuring what is in everyone's bags. I actually just picked up a new Marc Jacob's bag for my little trip to nyfw ( I was celebrating a very busy work week). Although the one below isn't my MJ, it's by Foley and Corinna, I thought I'd post some things that are always in my bag (including a fav- laura mercier's hydratint, burberry london, and, am I the only person who fills my bags... with bags??)
inspired by this pretty pic below.
 foley and corinna, burberry london, anyahindmarch, lauramercier, blackberry, mason martin margiela,

pretty summer style

as summer slowly comes to an end, I'm really loving these pretty summer things.

charles david

Today I am working on a new project for dace, and also the new dkny pr girl. THIS is multitasking at its finest. Yesterday I began receiving my first emails about nyfw, which quickly got me thinking about fall. I will embrace every bit of sun I have left but I am looking fwd to picking up a pair of these Charles David boots when it cools off a bit (a lot).
