TREND: White dresses in winter
WHO'S WEARING IT: Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne (Emporio Armani), Rachel Bilson (Amber Valletta for Monrow collection)
HOW TO WEAR IT: Legwear is the easiest way to winterize a white dress. Try black, gray, even purple opaque tights. Not a stockings gal? This season's over-the-knee boot is a trendy alternative.
And don't forget to choose a dress with a thicker fabric like cable knit, angora or cashmere. Linen has no place in the snow.
Miami, look out, you have a newcomer in town that is sure to have the ladies going wild. Christian Louboutin is opening up his much anticipated store in Miami this month.
The 2,400 square foot store was designed by architects 212Box with the entire facade covered in live orchids. The tropical like exterior is the perfect setting to sunny Miami, and the entrance awning mimics a shoe sole. The outside of the store is the perfect match for the stunning shoes that lay inside. The store sits inside, like a shoe box, with art galleries on the outside of the retail center covered in mirrors. Shoppers can stare at beautiful artwork and try on the famous red soles all in one place. From room to room, patrons are able to really immerse themselves in the Christian Louboutin culture. Similar to the San Paolo boutique, there are tiles around the store which each house one of the 9,000 encrypted letters, numbers or symbols which equate to the Louboutin signature “language” (one I would definitely like to become fluent in).
From trying on shoes to staring at art on the walls, the Miami Christian Louboutin boutique is a concept store that is sure to deliver. With famous neighbors including Marni, Tomas Maier and Y-3, we are sure Louboutin will feel right at home.
The boutique is located at 155 NE 40th Street in the Miami Design District, and is one of the exclusive retailers that will set up shop in the area. So any of you planning a tropical vacation to Miami, this is definitely a destination spot, and for those of you that live there, well, you are just very, very lucky!
The store’s phone number is 305.576.6820 and you can reach them via e-mail at Miami.FLBoutique@ChristianLouboutin.fr.
Miami is one lucky city!
Me, Kourtney, Khloe and my mom shot a fab commercial for the E! network! Mario did our make up, Frankie did our hair and Monica styled us! This set was so cool because it was the set where I love Lucy was filmed! They had pictures on the walls of the cast on the set! It was magical!
Last week Kourtney announced on her blog that she and mom will be closing Smooch. The store was Kourtney's baby. She put so much time and effort into Smooch to make it what it is, and we were all so proud of her for setting her mind to it and achieving her long time dream of opening a childrens' clothing store. But now that her son is coming along, she has to focus on being the best mother she can be to him and unfortunately the store just wouldn't be the same without her. We're all sad to see the store go, but I think Kourt and mom made the best choice. Now they both have more time to dote on the baby when he arrives! :)
Smooch is having a huge sale right now. The custom made furniture they sell there will also be on sale! They have the cutest beds, desks and chandeliers!
Khadijah and I love to get our dogs together for playdates. Rocky and Monster are best friends... so we had a couples' date and our dogs had their date, too!
I did an appearance at the Seagrass Mall in Florida and this store A'gaci is amazing! Everything is so affordable and super cute and trendy! I had a great time shopping for some early Christmas gifts! Have you guys shopped there before?
Wow, this is crazy! Yahoo! just released their Top 10 Searches as part of its Year in Review and I came in at number 8!! I want to thank all of you guys who come to my blog regularly. I really appreciate your support and your sweet comments. I love you guys!!!!!
Khloe threw Lamar a surprise party after the Lakers played a great game! Lamar was totally surprised! All of his close friends were there. Khloe even had "Happy Birthday Lamar" in lights on the building across the street for us to see! It was pretty special and such a fun night! How cute is Kourt's baby bump in these pics!?
