I need a new go-to purse. Really, quite badly. And while there are times when the shelves seem to be overflowing with handbags that I'm dying to own, this time round I've had a harder time finding + falling for the perfect tote. Until now. A little above the ideal price point, this Reed Krakoff Boxer is so amazingly perfect I think I might have to take the plunge. (It's an investment in myselfff. Right?)
Bottega Veneta's latest collaboration is with noted artist/photographer Mona Kuhn. Known for her dreamy shots of nudes, it'll be interesting to see what happens when the clothes come on, and how Kuhn translates her signature style to editorial fashion photography. I couldn't be more excited for the upcoming Resort 2012 lookbook, and am hoping for more of the ethereal beauty that she captures so perfectly in the rest of her work. Check out a collection of Kuhn's previous photographs below.

Liking this video from Club Monaco promoting the local manufacturing & exceptional quality of their new Made In The U.S.A. menswear collaboration.
...even though I find it more than a little ironic from a company that was founded in 1985 on Queen St. W., in Toronto.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have long held near Goddess-like status in the realm of the sartorial blogosphere, but it looks as though our fave girls may have some company in the form of another pair of pint-sized siblings. As of late, Elle and Dakota Fanning seem to be everywhere, with layouts in Vogue Best Dressed as well as this one from W, the beautiful sisters are leaving their mark on the fashion world...and looking great doing it.

I spent the past two years living in the middle of a snowbelt, and oddly enough seem to have come out of it loving the snow and all things winter. The big city feels like a bit of a heat bubble lately, and has me daydreaming about the colder days ahead and all of the activities that come with the change in season. Which is likely what made me think back to this spread in Martha Stewart Weddings. Summer may be wedding season, but these Sundance nuptials have a charm to them that only a snow-blanketed ski village can lend. The photographs on the hill are gorgeous, the save the dates & coffee sleeves are adorable....and who wouldn't want to attend a wedding that ends with the male guests being gifted flasks, and the female ones Uggs?

If there's one surefire way to know the holiday season has officially begun, it's the airing of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Festive & upbeat, the spectacle makes both women and men content to stay in for a night cuddled up in front of the tv. (Although it's likely only the women who start diets the day afterward.) The 2011 show had all the glitz and drama we've come to expect....glitter runway included ;)
