Handbag ~ Pick of the Day: Prada Tessuto & Ricamo Tote

The Prada Tessuto & Ricamo Tote, I was entirely sure that it was Valentino. Partly that’s because of the difficulty of photographing the details of a bag like this, but partly (or maybe mostly), it’s because it really LOOKS like some of the Valentino bags we’ve seen recently. Incredibly intricate, shiny, flower-themed…that’s kind of their thing. And it’s really not Prada’s thing - their aesthetic is much more streamlined and modern, particularly in the bag department.Buy through Saks for $3695.July 16th, 2009

D.S Pick of the Day: D&G Dolce and Gabbana Black Lace Bow Peeptoe Pumps

These Dolce and Gabbana Black Lace Bow Peeptoe Pumps have me saying Ooh-La-La-Lace! These pumps are very streamlined and so refined, with a delicate heel and a beautiful arch. But onto the real detail of the shoe.

The lace bow in the back of the shoe is truly stunning. I love that it is done in nude with a black lace overlay, so that the bow really becomes the center of attention in the shoe. Nude is a great color because it stands out, but isn’t too bold, and doesn’t distract from the beauty of the design of the shoe. I adore how the lace starts on the sides of the foot, and comes up in a bow at the uppermost point of the shoe, making it rest against the ankle artfully, almost looking like a flower. Paired with a pencil skirt mini, a little black dress or even a nude dress, this is a statement shoe. So keep the outfit minimal, and let the bow do the walking, and the talking.
