There's Something about MaryJane







Dolls when it comes to footwear this season it is ALL the MaryJane ... Nearly all the collections featured a great pair... Gals I beg thee to get to the nearest boutique! Cheers


All Hail the QUEEN


Poppy King - the make-up Maverick has done it again! OXYMORON - the newest collection from the LIPSTICK QUEEN is a matte lip gloss that not only keeps your lips soft & smooth but is long lasting! This ground-breaking line comes in four beautiful nude shades & with the mere price of $20 we all can look like Royalty!


There is this idea of classic beauty and there is an idea of beauty, but fashion and beauty are something very special and sometimes, especially in art, and I don't know if fashion is an art, things can look ugly first and become beautiful after in people's eyes because they are used to it. Karl Lagerfeld

Life isn't all about the next Fendi bag or Louboutin shoe (-CD)... some of us mortals actually have to work for a living... (yes yours truly has a "day job" ... I'm a fashion stylist/shoe designer/extraordinaire) I recently "discovered" SMARTDRAW & I have to admit - I'm addicted!

Nina Ricci

To be honest I NEVER paid Nina Ricci any attention whatsoever (not even the perfume) With that being said - Olivier Theyskens' debut for Nina Ricci evokes a nonchalant, youthful feel that anyone can wear no matter the age ... Kudos Theyskens Kudos

Keep it Together Ladies!


I will only say this once - If your nail chips/falls off or mysteriously disappears GO BUY ANOTHER ONE! This is not nor will it ever be cute ! Class dismissed .....

Strong enough for a Man Made for a Woman

Givenchy (my fave!)
3.1 Phillip Lim

Dolce & Gabbana



The AUTUMN/WINTER 2007-8 Season resurrected the androgynous chic aesthetic that I adore - The streamlined looks, atelier, cut, volume, construction and fall resonates a sharp Mens suit but don't be mistaken these looks are all women & I can't wait to get my hands on them!

TOP TEN SHOPPING TIPS


Susan Tabak, acclaimed author of Chic in Paris has been so kind as to share her TOP TEN Shopping secrets with us here at La Petite Blog....
Susan Tabak's Top 10 Shopping Tips
1) Buy on impulse - subliminal reasons for buying are often correct
2) Don't eat pasta the night before a big shopping spree - you won't feel happy the next day
3) Be sure to be well rested before shopping - when you are exhausted - you can make mistakes
4) Don't feel bad about expensive mistakes - it happens to everyone
5) Wear comfortable shoes - preferably Roger Vivier
6) If the salesperson says - oh you can wear it with jeans and a tee shirt - forget it
7) Don't wait until the last minute to buy something for a special occasion
8) Buy the little black dress if it looks like 5 others in your closet - if it means it is a classic in your style, it makes you look and feel great - it is a smart purchase to update this core item
9) Wear high-end and low-end together, vintage and designer
10) In winter - invest in a great coat- that's what everyone sees on the outside. In the summer - invest in a good handbag & shoes. They make the look. ...... AMEN

You're No Jem!


Call me a cynic but I get annoyed when I see "trendy people" who dress like it's 1988 - With this being said there is nothing wrong when you dress with retro influences and this lovely bag by FENDI does just that - it gives you an 80's feel without the trying too hard - Now children stop trying to look like Bea Arthur (Bea girl I love you) http://www.fendi.com/

Lady in Red


Nothing says "Sex Kitten" like a beautiful red dress. Sometimes a red frock can be très tacky but my new BFF Peter Dundas achieved this great feat with his F/W collection for Emanuel Ungaro (which I should add is BEAUTIFUL) - check it out http://www.style.com/ -
