Clear Style: The “Transparent” Handbag Trend (Spring 2013)

14 Mar

I spy a new trend! The transparent handbag trend took over the streets of Paris, Milan, London, and New York during fashion week. Every fashion forward dame was rockin’a transparent clutch, satchel, or backpack. This trend is fun, kitschy, and perfect for spring! I so want a transparent clutch to whisk around the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Shopping for fresh fruit and veggies is so much more fun with a designer clutch. A word to the wise: don’t carry any  “unmentionables” in your transparent handbag. I would hate for your “freaky” side to be on display for all the world to see.

CHANEL Beauty Shop Opens Up @ Saks Fifth Avenue (San Francisco)

2 Jul

No one does luxury better than CHANEL! I had the pleasure of attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly minted CHANEL Beauty Shop at Saks Fifth Avenue. The classic iconic CHANEL touch is weaved throughout the entire shop, even down to the tweed chairs. The open concept allows you to really discover the beauty of CHANEL’s cosmetic products. The skin care section brilliantly displays the many options CHANEL offers in their skin care line. My favorite space in the shop is the glorious perfume/cologne bar. The sweet little CHANEL potions are all lined up for her or him to test out. I think I might have found my new favorite men’s  – cologne CHANEL por monsieur. I couldn’t get enough of the smell, I practically inhaled it.

I was treated to mini-makeover by one of CHANEL’s talented make-up artists. Paris was super fun to chat with and he really hooked up my face.  I left the store feeling fresh and glamorous!

Special thanks to Ryan Williams for inviting me to this lovely event! I always have such a great time when inside the four walls of Saks. The Saks Team has a way of making you feel like family, well royal family that is. 🙂

I strongly encourage you all to stop by this piece of  beauty heaven, the next time you’re in San Francisco. Trust me its worth it!
