It is time to downsize this summer; the pouchette is the perfect bag for hours and hours of shopping - fuss free and easy access to your magical plastic cards (also known as credit cards ;p )

May you all have a fantaschic summer ahead!

Merchant of Venice: Chanel Cruise '10

Ah Karl. You never fail to impress us with your show sets. From carousels in Paris to the Great Wall of China, nothing is impossible. But his choice this time was surely a charming one. A very magical spectacle indeed. 

The quirky sunglasses a la Venetian masks are so chic lol! 

From WWD:

“Venice has a genuine dark and mysterious side to it that fascinated me. I really like the Italian spirit and the Venetian lifestyle,” said Lagerfeld, sporting a royal blue jacket, white shirt and skinny black pants. “And let’s not forget that Coco Chanel came back to Venice for 10 years.”

On Thursday night, Lagerfeld took over the beach of the recently renovated Excelsior Hotel on the Lido, a stretch of sand that conjures images of Luchino Visconti’s “Death in Venice” and early-1900s European nobility idly basking in the sun. The invitation — a painterly image of Coco Chanel sitting on the Lido beach — perfectly depicted the poetic setting.

Models coiffed in Thirties bobs strolled down the boardwalk as guests sat on wooden deck chairs. First out was a group of pirate-esque girls clad in wide-brimmed hats and black capes, followed by former supermodel Tatjana Patitz leading a gaggle of fresh-faced beauties in dapper cream sailor dresses with black stripes. Gondola stripes also dominated the knitwear and accessories, especially the open-toe wedge boots worn with most looks.

Venetian references were handled subtly, including black sunglasses reminiscent of Venetian masks, while gold brocade and lamĂ© lace adorning dresses recalled Byzantine details. And classic Chanel bouclĂ© suits with fringed edges came in a Titian-inspired red. The lion, Venice’s emblem and Coco Chanel’s birth sign, appeared as a print on flowy sepia-toned or black-and-white chiffon dresses."

My thoughts are everywhere lol so bear with the randomness ;p

*It takes one photo to spark inspiration, stunning! 

*since we live on an island, why aren't kaftan's popular? lol

*maybe a pair of liberty for nike will make me superfast in my spinning class? like spinach to Popeye?

*something about this "fabulous flats" feature reminded me of a bingo sheet: get a whole row right and perhaps win them all? Or maybe it looks like a calender? for you to mark each off once you get? lol! all i know is i want them all!!

*I'm quite the daydreamer: its currently 8:53 am in class, and I am imagining suddenly leaving class to catch a plane to Paris, have breakfast (more like indulge in decadent chocolat chaud) at Angelina's, discover every corner, smell the Printemp flowers, shop shop shop, and hit the movies to watch "Coco avant Chanel". Ah! 

I know, very very random post. I don't have time to unjumble my thoughts this early in the morning ;> have a great day!
