My personal "accessoration supreme" is 
my signature white shirt!!! 
 
I have six fresh shirts made every year, 
thanks to shirtmaker Ascot Chang,
but, the original was a Martin Margiela shirt
I bought decades ago in LA
at  Maxfield!!!!!
 
So ..... when I saw Frédérique Chauveau's sublime 
"white shirt installation"
at the launch party for the collaboration between
Maison Martin Margiela  and H&M .....
I flipped!!!!
 
Isn't it amazing ..... 
all the things that can happen in a white shirt!!!!

Maison Martin Margiela + H&M = Divine Decadence!!!!

The talk of the "fashion universe" was last night's 
extraordinarily fabulous launch of the collaboration between
fashion genius Maison Martin Margiela 
& international retail giant H&M!!!
 
The clothes & accessories (available Nov 15 @ H&M) are divine,
but I absolutely adored & was overwhelmed by
the spectacular "over-the-top" inventive & exciting
installation of the merchandise
in the  most incredible location in NYC...
a "decayed urban treasure" that has been
abandoned for over a decade, 
and is spectacular!!!
 
In this case my pictures are worth ten thousand words!!!
 
Incredible "accessoration" ..... don't you agree!!!

Lanvin + Ladurée = A Divinely Decadent Accessoration!

Lanvin's delightful designer Alber Elbaz's collaboration
with the sublime French patisserie Ladurée
is the "tastiest accessoration"
of 2012!!!!

Whimsical sketches of "French Femmes" by Alber
cover a white Ladurée box,
tied with bright red grosgrain ribbon,
plus eight pink bubble-gum flavored macarons ....
make this the chicest hostess gift yet!!! 

Thanks to fashion's fabulous duo MK & WR
for this yummie treasure ....
You're welcome back anytime!!!

2012 is "zipping" by ...... Christmas is almost here!!!

Soooo ....
How 'bout a divine early Christmas "accessoration" .....
updated garlands for your tree!!!!

Sew all the colored zippers you can find together,  
wrap them around your "blue-spruce" .....
it's kinda' like stringing popcorn or cranberries!!!

Very colorful, chic & very non-denominational .....
& very "accessorator-ish"!!!

Am I Suddenly Shoe Obsessed ....... Or Is It Feet?????

IMG_3903.jpg
Have shoes suddenly become the
"accessoration supreme???
(see blog 10/3/12)

Or is it that I can't stop looking down???
I adore a good Missoni pattern ...
& my favorite flame stitch is definitely on trend!!!
(see blog 4/30/10, 5/1/10/, 9/16/10,
9/21/10, 8/4/11, 12/12/11)

But, the collaboration between 
is deliciously,decadently, divine!!!

Unfortunately ...
I can't find 'em anywhere ....
Colette is sold out!!!

P.S. I really don't have a foot fetish ..... honestly!!!
