There is nothing I love more than kicking up a red-bottom heel. This prestigious accent is a herald in any girls wardrobe-and if you don't know what I am talking about by now we have some serious problems.Why of course I am referring to none other than the celebrated Christian Louboutin statement (and staple) shoe.
As if this fashion fulfillment couldn't get any more sophisticated, Louboutin has launched a coordinating handbag collection-correlating to the pumps that only the well-heeled can rocked.
Investments: Let's talk about them. As I was looking to purchase my most recent Chanel bag, dropping several g's in a bad economy seemed chancy. But, it wasn't my sales lady who convinced me (it never is, you either fall in love or you don't) but a fellow shopper in the cozy boutique. She told me, "Unlike the economy or stock market, these bags never lose value, they only gain it," which is one of the realest statements I have ever heard. And it's true...these couturier pieces are only rising in price-and value. So you might as well invest while it's still tolerable.
With the Louboutin bags ranging from $775 to $2900, what is more heeling than a matching red-bottom and clutch?
Some of my fav's from the newest collection. Hope everyone is taking advantage of this short and sweet week- I know I am. Check @soleofthesouth twitter later and maybe I'll let yall in on where I am indulging this week. Cheers, to you dolls -I know I already have at breakfast this morning (Rosé and LOW CAL orange-juice). X0x0

As I have said before, I judge all men on a Wall Street Standard. Thus there is nothing I crave more (work-week couture wise) than a perfectly-tailored, freshly pressed suit on a potential.Paired with the audacious tie (Hermes orange...you can NEVER go wrong)the courageous sock (yes boys, we do look at your socks)and the classic Italian shoe and boom, I'm (almost) sold.
Although I was not in attendance for this event last week, the legendary Scottish merchants Holland & Sherry made a special appearance at The Mansion on Peachtree for an intimate group.Fitting the consuetude suits, which are made from Vicuna Aymara (a rare camelid species that inhabit the high alpine of the Andean region), Holland & Sherry continue to supply prestigious tailors and luxury brands with the finest cloth (since its conception over 170 years ago).
As the pinnacle of British clothing hand work and detailing, Holland & Sherry offer the ace of raw materials to produce the most exquisite of ensembles.After five years in the making, Holland & Sherry has woven enough material to suit your needs.
Forget the Gucci suit and Eton dress shirt, Holland & Sherry take the luxury lifestyle to the next level. With suits costing almost $4,000 a yard (about $50,000 total) my suggestion: if you see a swain sporting a suit from Holland & Sherry, the next stint would be stake your stratum. Salutations to a short week dolls.

Promulgating the works of 20 SCAD seniors, the forthcoming fashionistas of Atlanta debuted their impeccable works to the paramount players in the fashion and art industry. A round of applause is well deserved to all the students.
The apex of the show (for me) was Megan Moore. I was ready to A) Open my checkbook and buy everything she showcased and B) Strip down and try it all on immediately(in private-obvi). Her clean lines, conservative yet décolleté cuts and tailored take on fashion is just what the Atlanta scene is craving.
Of course the open-bar influence sparked some bidding wars which resulted in a dare to defy. Luckily, Stephanie Davis Smith was the front-runner, and I hope she was being serious about hanging this in her office. (Congrats on the win Steph! :))
In other Atl fashion gossip- Don't forget that Lilly Pulitzer opens today at Phipps. You may want to scoot over there in anticipation of the holiday weekend. I know I'll be cavorting at the Club (PDC-thanks Brantley-or Sea Island) this weekend, and what is more germane than a Lilly staple? Libations and Lilly...so vogue. Now that is something to cheers about.

Isabel is best known for designing Michelle Obama’s presidential inauguration ensemble and Ruben is a world-renowned fashion illustrator. (Nordstrom and Louis Vuitton seek his work for exclusive projects.) The couple recently collaborated on a book, “Roots of Style: Weaving Together Life, Love, and Fashion.”

So today I went to see Peggy and I discovered a revolution that gives Botox and face lifts a run for its money...Facial Toning. This Compu-Lift not only slows the aging process, but when started early enough may delay or totally eliminate the need for more invasive treatments (aka going under the knife). This three-step process first stimulates lymph and blood circulation, oxgenates the skin and increases cullular turnover. Phase two consists of restoring initial tonus to muscles and stimulating the fibroblasts (collagen producers). Lastly, in phase three, a specially formulated nutritive antioxidant gel is used to provide vital nutrients essential to the production of elastin and collagen.
After all, what guy would chose Chanel boots over a pretty face and banging bod? ( I mean I can name a few, but they are def not hubby material.) And we all know we are on the search for the 5 karat...Talk about investments (in more way than one).
