Literally. Raf Simon’s Fall/Winter 2014-2015 haute couture collection for Dior is filled with silhouettes inspired by court fashion of yore (think voluminous skirts with side hoops).
It’s interesting to see how he interpreted 18th century style to fit with today’s context. Fresh and unique!
Did you get something for you mom for Mother’s Day? My mother had been looking for a simple, medium-sized crossbody bag for the longest time, so I just got her one, albeit a little bigger than what she wanted. She also wanted the bag to come with an external pocket at the back, but I couldn’t find one with that in time, sorry mom.
And then I chanced upon this good-looking Palette cross-body bag by Angela & Roi. How did this manage to escape my radar? This vegan leather handbag is actually perfect, size-wise and feature-wise (it has a little pocket at the back). I love the Palette Wine cross-body!
This bag comes in many pretty colors. Each color represents support for different cause, e.g. blue for colon cancer, so when customers purchase a blue handbag, five dollars will automatically be donated to Colon Cancer Alliance.
Angela & Roi Palette cross-body bag, $65, color + cause supported: Red (HIV/AIDS), Green (Anxiety/Depression), Light Brown (Cancer), Purple (Alzheimers), Black (Melanoma), Wine (AIDS/HIV), Orange (Kidney Disease), Blue (Colon Cancer).
They also have other types of bags, also in quality vegan leather, such as this square tote bag. The Square Plum Tote, $148, is another one that caught my attention.
Angela & Roi vegan leather square tote handbag, $148. Mandarin Orange (kidney disease), Navy (Colon Cancer), Wine (HIV AIDS), Plum (Alzheimers), Gray (diabetes), Dark Green ( Anxiety & Depression).
Aren’t these pretty pastel macaron trinket boxes by Two’s Company the loveliest thing since, er real macarons? These ceramic limoge boxes come in a set of 12, in 6 colors Rose, Light Pink, Peach, Light Lavender, Light Yellow, and Pistachio. They look good enough to eat and are a great way to store earrings or other small knick knacks. Perfect for Mother’s Day or even as wedding favors?
More macaron-shaped goodies… set of bath fizzers and scented soaps.
