A.F. Vandevorst

An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx Spring 2009 showing was nothing less than memorable. (A.F. Vandervorst) It had strings of brilliance scattered throughout it. The feminine influence was on display. I think they can be proud of their showing overall. The sexy sleeves with extended cuffs on their white blouse was simply outstanding. I loved the beading on a grey dress with a tiny grey ribbon for a belt. Simple elegance.

Pay attention to gloves this season. Most of them are much longer at the wrist. Of course they are coming in all different colors. With the Jackets and Coats having shorter sleeves, we need longer gloves to make up the difference. I thought these gloves by Miu Miu were cute.

I was really surprised when I saw this sweater coat from Anthropologie. It has a tailored look and it is so sophisticated. I envision wearing it over some wide legged pants, with some super skinny legged jeans or even with a little pencil skirt.

I respect the rights of all animals (that being said) Marc Jacobs created this absolutely beautiful handbag. For the price, I would definitely demand the quality workmanship that went into this bag!

I tried to resist these red shoes by none other than Christian Louboutin. I don't know if it was the detailing on the buckle or the way the leather is draped over your foot leading to the buckle. Or maybe it's the way he gathered the shoe at the bottom which leads to the draping effect. Whatever it is I'm hopelessly in love with this shoe!

When I saw this coat by Aqcuascutum I thought, "Well I'll give it an "A" for originality. It was the color that just reached out to me though.

Yesterday, Frida Giannini who is from a different generation than Milan's other female designers, proved she sees fashion from a more pragmatic standpoint. Giannini named her Spring show "Gucci Exotica." After reviewing the collection all I can say (literally) is Wow!

To see the entire collection go to Style.com. With that said, I don't want to say another thing, you've have just got to go and see it!

Zac Posen designed this handbag. It's a nice little cross between a hobo and a tote. Though he actually list it as a tote. We really don't care what style it is, it's just stylish!!!

Supercar purists would call this stretch Ferrari 360 Modena limousine an abomination; I agree, but read on, because this Ferrari is quite special too.

This Ferrari limo’s 0-60 is less than six seconds, and it reaches a top speed of 166 MPH--a loss of just 17 MPH than a standard Modena. To make the 20-foot Ferrari limo, a 360 Modena was chopped in half and stretched 9.5 feet. A hand-built carbon fiber section makes the stretch possible.

The Ferrari limo only seats eight people, but has already claimed the Guinness World Record for fastest limousine. The limo’s creators are under heavy fire from Ferrari, who claims that the car has been so heavily modified as to be unrecognizable and mandates that its creators remove all Ferrari badges to avoid trademark infringement. Ferrari---I really don't know of any other car that has the limo's shape so regardless to whether you remove the "Ferrari Badges" or not WE ALL KNOW IT'S A FERRARI!

Juicy's finally got my attention with this handbag. I had to ask, "Who's that by?" So you know I was purely looking for style. I thought maybe Prada at first, before I saw the emblem. You should have seen my face when I learned it was by Juicy Couture!

Issa! Simply Beautiful! The Spring 2009 Collection by Issa offered a random grab bag of easy, fluid shapes in light, floating fabrics. Femininity at it's finest!

I luv a line that's as feminine as this one is. And details! Did you notice the snake necklace? WOW!!! Not over accessorized, just enough to make the dresses pop. I'm really luving this collection!
