Review: My Flat in London

Monday, December 29, 2008



True style begets all trend. The MFIL vivant is a very stylish girl. She loves all things grand, yet feminine; original, yet beautiful; pretty with a touch of haute, diamonds in the rough, and believes that sometimes simple things can be the most fulfilling. She never hesitates to add a bit of the estate life to everyday affairs. She also prides herself in making the ordinary extraordinary!

My Flat in London is proudly sold in over 450 stores worldwide including Fred Segal and Stanley Korshak. In addition, the My Flat in London accessories can be found on HSN.



I adore all things pink so its no wonder I fell in love with this handbag, the Faux Fur Kelly ($395)! This handbag gives girly girl a whole new different meaning. It is sophisticated and posh with a price tag to prove it. I was stunned when I first received this handbag, because I've never come across a handbag so beautiful. Hardly any other top designers could compete with this brand. This handbag has beautiful, intricate details - from the giant twist kiss lock closure to the signature MFIL crown with pink leather bow underneath. This beaut is ideal for important evenings out. I had one lady to stop me at a store to ask me who was this handbag by. This hardly happens to me! I'm known to carry around a lot and was surprised about how spacious it is. I still had a lot more room after putting my essentials in.

If the pink isn't your color, this handbag is also available in faux leopard or faux french mink in brown.



The HMB Petite Wool Tote ($175) is another exquisite handbag from the My Flat in London line that I absolutely adore. I haven't had the chance to use this handbag, but I can hardly wait to get the chance. I love how it is cleverly designed with a grey felt bee with a crystal crown encrusted on top - no need for written words, it screams Queen Bee. Whether it is brunch or tea, this is the perfect handbag to provoke a conversation.

My Flat in London has a plethora of accessories to help you maintain your lavish lifestyle. Each handbag comes with a beautiful silk dust / sleeper bag to protect your handbag.

Review: I received the Tulip Skirt in brown ($32.95). I usually like to wear black, but I thought I'd go for brown for a change and I must say that I don't regret my choice! I was in awe of the quality of the product when I first received this skirt. Not only the quality of fabric is great, but this skirt is very comfortable! It also fits perfectly - not too loose or snug. I'm the type that likes to dress up a lot. So I like the fact that I can still be dress up with this skirt and still be comfortable at the same time. It is casual, yet classy. You can also order this skirt in black if the brown is not your ideal color.

As Fergie gets set to release her two-part shoe line, Fergie/Fergalicious, in February 2009, the singer headed to New York to meet with Brown Shoes’ designers to talk footwear. But what’s the scoop on the collection for all of us who can’t wait til February to see it? “I wanted to express my style sensibilities through the shoe designs, and create looks that fashionable women will love to wear,” Fergie tells PEOPLE. “Both collections have their own subtle iconic ornamentation and details representing symbols that are important to me, and recognized by my fans.” Fergie is also making sure her lines are affordable to all her fans. The first, “Fergie”, line retails between $89-$129 and the second, “Fergalicious”, line retails between $49-$59. We can’t wait to see what Fergie has in store for us.

Sneak Peek: Madonna Stars in Louis Vuitton's Latest Ads

Thursday, December 04, 2008



Courtesy of People

For weeks, rumors have been swirling that Madonna would be gracing Louis Vuitton’s new ad campaign. The French fashion house has remained mum — until now. Her Madgesty will indeed appear in the Spring/Summer ‘09 ad campaign that will hit magazines in February 2009. The star is shot by legendary photographer Steven Meisel (who infamously collaborated with Madonna on her intimate book) in a sultry French cafe setting. When it came to choosing the new face, designer Marc Jacobs wouldn’t have it any other way. “I wanted the campaign to be very bold, very sensual and very atmospheric. To carry off all these references and all its sophistication, we needed the ultimate performer — and for me, that is Madonna,” says Jacobs. We couldn’t agree more.

I’m all about the runway and the sidewalks!” Christian’s Payless collection will be unveiled at his runway show at New York Fashion Week next February and then exclusively available in Payless stores and Payless.com in fall ‘09 with price points expected to be in the $25 - $45 range.

Review: Goorin Brothers Shawna Fingerless Gloves

Sunday, November 30, 2008



Since 1895, four generations of Goorins have been advancing the art of hatmaking. Growing the business mainly by underground word of mouth, the Goorins have kept the artistic integrity of their products and the purity of their techniques intact by choosing not to mass market their wares. For over a century, each generation of Goorin brothers has elected instead to cater to individuals who are not swayed by trends, but inspired by timeless tradition and authentic quality. Because, at Goorin, they know style isn’t something you see in a magazine. It’s something you make on your own.

Goorin Brothers is bringing back the hat with vigor and purpose, appealing to a very special class in society. The New Royal Class, as Goorin sees it, is comprised of those creative, unique individuals found in every walk of life who blaze their own trails. These original thinkers thrive in an atmosphere of underground inspiration and want a hat that will help them express their distinctive spirit. Wear anything from the Goorin collection and you can tell your story without ever having to say a word.

Like you, perhaps, a Goorin is full of contradictions: It is timeless and timely, grounded and groundbreaking. Rooted in tradition, yet calling for change. You are defined by the accessory you wear.



Review: I received the Goorin Brothers Shawna Fingerless Gloves ($23) from Anonymous Venice. I've never been the type to get into regular gloves, because I like my fingers to be free. So I was very pleased when they started making fingerless gloves. They keep my hands and fingers warm enough to write with. These gloves are snug and are very beautiful with a floral embroidery. This particular style is available in black with white floral embroidery and blue with grey floral embroidery. You might be interested in the Goorin Brothers Flashdance Armwarmers in gray or crea ($20) if you're looking for extra warmth and comfort.

Review: Twisted Silver

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

Twisted Silver is home of the affordable convertible, where belts become necklaces, become chokers or become multi-wrap bracelets! There's so many options to wearing one of their pieces of jewelry.



I have the Diva Necklace ($50). I guess that I had better say, "we have the Diva Necklace". I share it with my mother/business partner since she's in love with that piece of jewelry! She loves chokers, but I don't see where she's having a problem wearing the Diva Necklace instead of the Diva Choker (Was $40.00 Now $20). Yes, Twisted Silver does have the Diva Choker! This piece is very light. You're aren't bothered with the heaviness around your neck.



I have one over on my mom. She isn't into bracelets and I absolutely love bracelets! That means I don't have to share my Athena bracelet ($40) with her. This snap cuff surrounds your wrist in a simple brass design with a lovely arc Greco-Romanesque plague. I love the vintage look. It is very beautiful and unique!

Debra Mitchell is the Twisted Silver founder and designer of fabulous and funky jewelry that's adorned by Hollywood's celebrities. Her pieces are regularly included in VIP gift bags and Celebrity auctions for GRAMMY. Maria Shriver, Nicolette Sheridan of Desperate Housewives, Finola Hughes of General Hospital, and host at Style Network, Ming Na of ER, singing sensation Renee Olstead, and Brooke Burke of Rock Star IN*XS are among the Hollywood elite that rock Twisted Silver. Signature designs featured in a variety of popular style publications, at network program events, and are a favorite of the Style Network show, "How do I Look?"

Other A-Listers with Twisted Silver: Angela Bassett, Carmen Electra, Academy Award nominated Catherine Keener of CAPOTE, Charlize Theron, Christina Ricci, Jessica Biel, Kate Walsh, Katherine Heigl, Melanie Griffith, Natasha Bedingfield, Oprah Winfrey, Shantelle, Sharon Stone, Shawn King, Stacy Keibler of Dancing with the stars, Tia Carrere, Tyra Banks, Vanessa
