More on the LBD

The little black dress: that basic piece of apparel that MUST be in your closet. A versatile black dress in a design that never goes out if style, and black of course, black favors any skin tone. The “little black dress” was made popular by the iconic French fashion designer Coco Chanel. Her idea was to create a dress that was suitable for any occasion and had a timeless quality about it, regardless of any fads.

BB, CC, WTH?

What are bb and cc creams?

They are the latest rage in the cosmetology industry: BB creams appeared last year and have been super popular ever since, and now, CC creams are causing a commotion. But I know what you are wondering, what the hell are BB and CC Creams?

Honey, I blew up a Kelly by Hermès!

Those lucky enough to own a Kelly by Hermès handbag know perfectly how perfect and exquisite it is. The mythical purse is handcrafted with the most meticulous care and using the best quality leather. But, how would it feel to literally submerge yourself inside one of these purses?

Thierry Mugler’s Source is a great example of chic and green!

I love it when fashion, beauty and luxury make efforts to go green (how in the world can I link the words luxury and green, I ask myself. Oh, well! They made an effort!) Thierry Mugler is presenting a clever strategy in lowering costs and therefore, prices for their customers. How? With a great addition to their already popular refillable flacons. Thierry Mugler’s Source is a perfume fountain that allows customers to refill their empty perfume bottles with four of the company’s most popular perfumes: Angel, Alien, Womanity and Angel Eau de Toilette.

Source can be found at the moment in over 2000 fine department stores in France where Thierry Mugler perfumes are sold. Smaller Source refilling stations can be found in the U.S. in stores like Ulta Beauty, dispensing Angel and Alien only. Now filling up your empty bottle of Angel can save you up to $30 and even more, and at the same time, you are helping the enviroment by reducing materials (dematerialization) and saving energy and non-renewable resources used in the production of flacons and packaging. Yay for sustainability!

The company will push the strategy in April this year by putting empty perfume bottles on shelves instead of pre-filled bottles.

Louis Vuitton’s new LockIt Collection

Image

Want something a little more “now” for Valentine’s? Louis Vuitton has launched a fabulous fine jewellery collection for 2013. The LV Lockit is a 15-piece collection inspired on a romantinc legend that says that in order to have their love sealed forever, couples must attach a padlock to a bridge and throw the keys into the water. This is very popular in Paris, at the Pont des Arts Bridge over the Sienna. (Much more romantic than getting engaged under the Eiffel Tower, I say! 🙂 )

Eighteen carat yellow, rose and grey gold were used to create the bracelets, pendants and rings in the collection. The trademark padlock, also seen in LV’s fall 2011 runway collection, is inscribed with the ubiquitous LV logo. If you like bling and you’re willing to spend a little more, some of the pieces are bejeweled with beautiful double bands of pavé diamonds. While some of the padlocks serve as pure ornament, the one’s in the bracelets are beautiful clasps.

The collection is available at Louis Vuitton worldwide and it was launched just in time for Valentine’s Day. Love is in the air! ♥
