The sheer skirt situation is still happening. All over this runway in particular. I like the cascading petal motif but nothing here made me super excited, and it doesn’t feel terribly fresh either. One more like this and Valli might be like Elie Saab – same, same, same, same.  Full Article

This runway was, happily, not as embarrassingly bad as Donatella’s last collection – click here for a refresher. Remember that mess? This time… well… She kicked it a little old school.

Hi Duana! I thought I'd get you in on a naming debate my husband and I are having. Our first child is on her way, and I really want to name her Elise. I have loved the name for years-feminine, beautiful, but not too common or fussy. (I admit to liking the name largely because I'm a big Cure fan and I love the song "A Letter To Elise". Full Article
