The LV Diaries: A Bewitching Papillon

Bewitched is one of those shows that I watched as a child— it’s up there with 1960’s classics like the Brady Bunch, Family Affair and That Girl (I am currently watching them with my daughter and she loves them all–including Bewitched!).  The fashions and style of the 1960’s are like no other and while watching …

The LV Diaries: Vintage Mini Sac HL

This by far has got to be the cutest bag ever made by Louis Vuitton. This little bag is older than me–it’s well over 35 years old. I bought this vintage Mini Sac HL about 4 years ago–the brand has since brought back these bags and I believe they market them as a mini speedy. …

La Robe de Palmier

Gosh, it seems so lovely in French, doesn’t it? Now that we are getting closer to our west coast vacation, I’m trying on certain things that I think may be good to bring along on the trip–this dress? I’m not sure. Typically I’ll love an outfit and it doesn’t photograph so well however, I didn’t …

First & foremost, they’re comfortable. Secondly, they’re extremely versatile–dress it up or down. Done. This dress in particular is a convertible maxi dress …

Breakfast At Tiffany’s

Since reading “Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast At Tiffany’s and the Dawn of the Modern Woman”, I have been searching the net more and more for images from the film, “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” (1961). It’s iconic in my eyes–truly I remember where I was and the exact moment I saw that film back in …

Chanel Jumbo Suede Handbag

Hello Friends! It looks like 2019 is starting off fabulously! It’s not everyday that I buy a new handbag but when I do–I go big. My love affair with handbags started *gasp* about 19 years ago–(remember the days when Coach & Dooney & Burke were the IT bags?!) Since then, I’ve gone through so many …
