current fashcrave – lanvin

Lanvin gold chain link braided heels 
Lanvin skin coloured bag with metal chain links
Lanvin nude drape dress 2010
Lanvin Grosgrain belt Spring 2010
Lanvin embellished long earrings Spring 2010
 Lanvin Pearl cuff
I am lusting after these items from Lanvin 2010 collection. This would make the perfect event-attending outfit. For the longest time now I never agreed with the fash-forwards’ obsession with Lanvin. But comes spring 2010 and Lanvin kept throwing all these delectables under my nose, I couldn’t help but slide over to the dark side. Now on this side, I am simul-writhing in thrall whilst planning head-to-toe Lanvin outfits and calculating what to buy with that next paycheck.
Just the other day I was at OnPedder in Singapore and I picked out a pair of Lanvin braided raffia gold strappy heels. To. Die. For. Only to realise it was sold out in my size!!! Have trawled internet sites looking for those shoes to no avail. If you could remote access my brain would you call up that picture of those shoes and buy them for me!
Heart Lanvin.

cherry crush: LV multicolore monogram with studs

with 2 comments



Now, white or black? If you know me personally, you know I have the weirdest tastes in the whole wide world. Sometimes, I like the ugliest things too.

The LV Multicolore Monogram Courtney is probably one bag where the divide between likes and dislikes, fans and haters, is one straight clear-cut line. You either love it or hate it; there’s no middle ground. So Cherry LVOEs it. Last year while picking out my christmas present at the newly minted ION LV, I had to place it, rather reluctantly, back on the counter for something that was less outlandish. The reason: its relatively hefty price tag of SGD3,600 (I don’t remember exactly, so don’t quote me!) Thinking back, I should have just listened to the very supportive boyfriend and went ahead with my choice instead, but hey, my boy works hard and I do find it more difficult to spend his money than mine…so that was it: my Palermo went home with me.

A bit more information on the Courtney:

Named after ‘the most controversial woman in the history of rock’ according to Rolling Stone, Courtney Love, this new Multicolore bag is true to the spirit of Courtney’s colorful life with a touch of rock attitude.

The Courtney is crafted from the brilliantly scintillating Monogram Multicolore canvas and features 2 natural cowhide leather bands covered with large golden brass studs. Who would have thought that the feminine Multicolore would look rock chic? The bag also has an adjustable and removable leather strap if you feel like carrying it on your shoulder. Courtney has a large opening with a double zip, and inside there’s a flat pocket and a phone pocket.

Multicolore Courtney comes in two sizes, MM (15.3″ x 10.6″ x 9″) and GM (16.7″ x 11″ x 10″) and comes in two colors, Black and White. Courtney is available at Louis Vuitton stores for US$2430 and US$2800 for MM and GM respectively.

Rock chic? I dont know why studs always scream that, but anyways, I have one hard and fast rule when it comes to buying bags: when a bag screams your name like this screams mine, there’s only one thing left to do : BUY IT.

So, white or black?
