Coco Before Chanel

Friday, September 25, 2009

On Friday, October 9th, Sony Pictures will launch one of the year’s most highly-anticipated fashion films, Coco before Chanel (the moving opening schedule is here). The plot follows the story of Coco Chanel's rise from obscure beginnings to the heights of the fashion world. Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel defined countless elements of fashion. One of the biggest benchmarks of the brand, other than the iconic tweed coat and Chanel No.5 fragrance, was the little black dress. In 1926, Chanel published a picture of a short, simple black dress in Vogue, who called it “Chanel’s Ford.” Like the Model T, the little black dress was simple and accessible for women of all social classes. Vogue also said that the LBD would become “a sort of uniform for all women of taste.”

Nicolette Prpa, owner of Shop She Boutique explains, “This fall 2009, designers are paying homage to this fashion legend by offering their version of the LBD.” Nicolette goes on, “There are little black dresses this season to fit every styles, occasions, and price points.”

Here are few of her favorites below:

Alice & Olivia Bow Button Dress, $550 at Shop She Boutique

Black Halo Helena Dress, $389 at Fix Boutique

A’GACI Studded Sleeve V-Neck Dress, $22.50

Review: Jumeau Bags

Saturday, September 05, 2009

From the beginning Jumeau was designed differently. Their focus has always been on premium function with exceptional materials. Everything they design complements your body. While creating products that work with your contours they also use exclusive materials more commonly found in the most expensive technical bags and packs. This combination of premium materials, premium design, and premium craftsmanship creates a distinct product.

Jumeau also uses sustainable materials and sources recycled materials when possible to aid their vision of being Green friendly. They stand by their products 100% that's why they offer a 45 day no questions asked satisfaction guarantee and a 5 year replacement warranty. You won't need another bag; so go ahead and feel good about owning a Jumeau.

I had the pleasure of working with Jumeau recently to review one of their handbags.I chose the Zofia in Deep Sea ($109). It is a luxuriously soft handbag with a classic style and modern details. I love that it is made with Organic Bamboo & Cotton and Recycled Hardware, making it hard to keep your hands off this eco luxury! It is wonderfully made and looks like it can stand anything. It big enough to hold all of your essentials without overwhelming you. This handbag certainly does not disappoint! Best of all, this company offers exceptional communication.

This particular handbag style is also available in Desert, Soil or Cranberry.
