Topshop To NYC!!!

October 10, 2008 is the day. Topshop, the UK’s best held shopping secret will finally come to New York City’s Soho neighborhood! During my last trip to London, I completely raided Topshop. Take a look at some of the items you can purchase, now by mail (yes, they deliver to the USA) and in October just by taking the N or R to Prince Street. Well, alright now!

THE MUSEUM AT FIT PRESENTS SOLE DESIRE: THE SHOES OF CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN

From March 13 – April 18, 2008, the work of Christian Louboutin will be shown at the FIT Museum in NYC. This is a must see for all shoe lovers. I know, I know, those red soles make me swoon too!

According to the The Museum at FIT website:

Sole Desire: The Shoes of Christian Louboutin explores the work of this contemporary luxury shoe designer, known for his exquisite and expensive footwear featuring eye-catching red soles. The exhibition will examine Louboutin’s inspirations, which range from gardens to bullfighters to fetish imagery, as well as investigating the explosive popularity of his shoes in today’s unprecedented climate of celebrity influence.

This exhibit is definitely worth seeing. I briefly saw it last night, but I plan on attending again and spending more time viewing designs by one of my favorite designers hands down!

I Love Trashy Make-up!

One of my favorite labels, Heatherette has a new makeup line debuting this week from M. A.C. (Love it!)  If you don’t know the “it” boys, Traver Rains and Richie Rich who design Heatherette, get to know them! Their look is so downtown NY and truly trashy. I love the pink compact in the promotional picture above. I hope M.A.C. continues what they have built themselves up to be by providing colors and makeup options for all.

I recently went to the M.A.C. counter at Macy’s in Herald Square and saw the latest team up between M.A.C. and someone from the art/design world.  Fafi, a French graffiti artist currently has makeup products with M.A.C.  All of the consultants were wearing the makeup in true Fafi fashion. And, let me tell you this, they all looked CRAZY! Hearts drawn on the cheeks and long dark lines of eyeliner. All types of Wrong! (But I do like Fafi’s art, just not the makeup.) I wouldn’t wear it, but maybe some of you would.  Let’s just hope the boys come a little better!!  I know Richie Rich, the DIVA will not let me down!

I love Heatherette for many reasons, but mostly because they consistently use models of all colors to strut down the catwalk. Check out this video and see how different they are.
