FAIRYTALE ENDING

Clay and I braved the lines Friday night alongside hundreds of frantic, fashionable New Yorkers, for the highly anticipated Lanvin ♥ H&M collection. Worth the wait, there was an incomparable energy as the first group of shoppers, myself included, were let inside for our 15 minutes to shop the collection.   
I grabbed this red tulle dress, my first choice, and the one-shoulder pink dress (similar to the one in my previous post) which I can't wait to share with you guys! Everyone in the store was congratulating each other on their purchases and how beautiful they were going to look in Alber's affordable luxury.

I have tons of great outfit ideas for this dress, especially for winter, so anticipate more posts with this fun piece! Did you manage to get some of your fave Lanvin ♥ H&M pieces? I'm looking forward to your posts! xo Antonia

ANNA ♥ LANVIN


I predict the fashion blogging community is going to EXPLODE following the launch of Lanvin ♥ H&M tomorrow.
You can bet I'll be lining up early to get my hands on THIS amazing number! I pray to Alber Elbaz that the NYC fashionistas will
be civil when the doors open at 8:00 AM tomorrow morning and I can leave with dress in-hand (in one piece).
The collection is already selling on eBay for astronomical prices! Yikes.

While I endure the 11 hour wait, I will continue to salivate over the runway photos from Alber's Lanvin ♥ H&M
'haute couture' show in NYC last night. How amazing does my favorite person in the fashion world, Anna Dello Russo,
look in this one-shoulder candy pink dress?! Love her. 

Good luck tomorrow everyone! Looking forward to seeing your Lanvin ♥ H&M posts! xo Antonia

ON THE PINK SIDE

How gorg is Viktoriya Sasonkina in this editorial for NAAG Fall 2010? I love the ethereal, ultra-femme quality of these photos and I desperately need those platforms, fur, and flared denim jeans in my life (*gasp* Yes, me! In jeans!). Also trying to resist the compelling urge to bleach my hair...someone convince me otherwise!

HALSTON AND THE CITY

I bought this gorgeous Halston Heritage cape dress to wear for my birthday last night (my amazing friends threw me a fabulous surprise party!). I don't own anything in this peach tone and the soft hue combined with the beautiful draping had me sold!
I'm obsessed with these Rachel Rachel Roy pumps. I love how heavily saturated the blue is; such a great contrast against the pastel Halston dress.

FLORES DE INVIERNO

I'm in love with this editorial from Vogue Latin America featuring the always beautiful Eva Herzigova. The rose-hued blossoms contrasted with gothic lace, leather, and ruffles creates a unequivocally provocative juxtaposition. Source: Kokobombon.

PARIS VS. NYC

I have to introduce you all to one of my new favorite blogs, Paris versus New York! I am obsessed with these adorable
illustrations and even though I am now officially a New Yorker, I couldn't possibly pick a team ;)
Aren't they the most!? All images are created by talented graphic designer Vahram Muratyan who explains the project as "A visual but friendly match between those two cities seen by a lover of Paris wandering through New York's infinite details, clich├ęs and contradictions...". Hopefully prints are available soon! In the meantime, check out Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities!

Au revoir! Kiss, kiss.

HIGH LINE

The High Line is one of my favorite places to relax and escape from the craziness of Manhattan. Situated in the Meatpacking District, The High Line is an urban park built on a former elevated freight railroad spur. The green space was beautiful in the summer, but the fall hues make The High Line absolutely stunning!
Found this awesome wall under The High Line that was just asking to be blogged!

Clay and I stopped by the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market. Suprisingly, I left empty-handed (what?! Who am I!?!) but the freshly-squeezed lemonade was BEYOND. I'll be coming back to the HKFM even if only for this deliciously refreshing beverage!
