The perfect day is finding out that Caruso’s Grove in Los Angeles now has a Laduree Restaurant from Paris. If you are looking for a great place for lunch or dinner on a weekend or just because – slip on your Chanel inspired boucle jacket and go get some macarons at Laduree. We happened upon the restaurant 2 days after Christmas and it was not busy for lunch. Turns out the crowds were too busy shopping the after Christmas sales to notice that Laduree was right there across the street from the AMC Theater and Nordstrom. Always having Paris on my mind, I made a beeline for the restaurant and sat there to have a light lunch before doing any shopping at The Grove. (Jacket – Shopbop)
We had Laduree’s traditional Marie Antoinette Tea with avocado toast and asparagus, hot chocolate, and their mini burgers with fries. For dessert we had macarons of course. The avocado toast served on a brioche and a poached egg on top was a perfect light lunch after a very festive Christmas season including a trip to Punta Mita. I was glad to have something light for lunch. My daughter had the 4 mini burgers and fries and she totally enjoyed them. The macarons were a small gluten free treat that were a perfect dessert to end our meal.
After lunch, we made our way to Topshop and saw the most amazing embroidered leather jacket. The jacket was the perfect combo of edgy and feminine at the same time with its delicate embroidery and steel spikes crafted perfectly all over the motorcycle style leather jacket. It’s still on my wishlist.
We did pick up some pom pom keychains and pom pom hats while at Topshop, and made our way to Barnes and Nobles to pick up some adult coloring books. Not sure if you have ever seen an adult coloring book, but they are pretty cool. Picture some of the most beautiful landscapes or artistic drawings that need to be colored in with colored pencils. If you are looking for a way to destress after the holidays, these coloring books may be an alternative to going for a run if it is too cold to go for a run. After that, we headed home in traffic.
Sandy Liang is a new talent out of New York City that is doing all kinds of edgy designs you have not seen before. Loving the pretty floral motif motorcycle leather jacket that mixes the edgy chic with a fun whimsical floral embroidery all over the jacket. Makes you want to wear this jacket all spring into fall with everything from floral dresses to black jeans. No matter what, this is a must have for spring.
How cool is this? I just found a photo of Miranda Kerr on the streets after Paris Fashion Week this morning looking just like this photo – how crazy right? See her photo below.
She is seen here wearing the same leather jacket and a similar bag as the Alexander McQueen bag I have featured in this post and skinny jeans by Frame Denim. Get her whole look.
See below for details. Miranda Kerr’s tote is the one by Balmain which is not available online and in stores for $4350. I personally like the Alexander McQueen bag better for $1545.
Alexander McQueen Grey Tote BagÂ – love this bag. It is like a modern Hermes birkin for the modern edgier woman. The leather is supple and textured in a gorgeous dove grey for winter. The key padlock is a signature Alexander McQueen skull that gives the bag a very sleek look. The tote is just a great looking bag with simple lines.
Kim Kardashian was seen with her sister yesterday shooting more segments of her show wearing a Valentino leather jacket and a Givenchy Graphic print dress. Since the dress was very figure hugging, it accentuated all of her assets. Kim has put on a few pounds since her 4 month pregnancy and her famous derriere has expanded as well.
My vote on this Givenchy graphic dress is that Kim does not wear it again until after she has given birth. As tough as it is for her to start wearing maternity clothing, she may want to start looking at wearing clothing that is for a pregnant woman now so that her daily looks do not look like she is wearing ill fitting clothing. Sorry Kim this one is a miss.
If you are not pregnant and love this Graphic print dress from Givenchy, get it for $1988 nowÂ and channel your inner Kim Kardashian.
Balenciaga leather motorcycle jacket alert. This is the holy grail of leather jackets and it is now available online. Yes you could get it at Balenciaga or you can buy it at Barneys New York and get triple points which means almost 15% back in your total purchase in a gift card to shop more at Barneys New York at the end of the year. I am all for getting a little extra either through friends and family savings or gift card savings. Either way it is a little bit extra for something else like that Celine luggage bag you wanted in a mini size.
Yes this is that leather jacket you have seen on every runway model all over New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week and beyond. The smooshy leather from Balenciaga cannot be imitated and the impeccable tailoring makes this the only leather jacket that is sold out and sought after every season.
This season blush is a big color and the Balenciaga leather jacket comes in the blush nude color. This versatile neutral will take you from day to night and on your travels. Wear this jacket with your leather tank dress or your leather pants. There is nowhere you cannot wear this jacket.
Ok so my issue is that every single time I see something that is drastically marked down for 70% off I start hyperventilating and thinking that the item must be purchased by me immediately or it will be gone in 5 minutes. Most of the time it is not true. For the most part anything that is 70% off does go relatively fast, however when a piece like this Donna Karan Casual Luxe Vintage Leather BomberÂ is 70% off you still have to think twice only because at 70% off it is still $898.50. So even though it was $2,995 and now 70% off and no one is disputing it is a great deal, the cost of the great deal is relative.
Here is what I like about this jacket. The leather. The leather is a soft smooshy lamb leather. There is no denying this leather is from the best leathers in the world. The tailoring and styling of the jacket is exquisite. After all it is Donna Karan. However, the wrinkled leather look…I just don’t get it. Why do we need it to be wrinkled? That is the only thing that I would say is a con on this mostly pro jacket that is on sale. I say this is definitely a get it jacket. What do you think?
Donna Karan Casual Luxe Vintage Leather BomberÂ for $898.50 from $2,995.
Nicky Hilton and Kourtney Kardashian are both big fans of this shearling leather jacket line. I love the black leather jacket that Kourtney Kardashian wears while taping the Kim and Kourtney New York City show in New York City this month.
You can get the jacket for 20% off too. I have a coupon code for you.
Leave it to Vince to make the best looking leather jacket for the season. The Vince Drape Front Leather Jacket is basically a perfect leather jacket. The jacket is crafted of a soft Italian leather, lined in shearling, and draped to softly fall in the most flattering shape. You can even belt it for a dressier look. It is getting a little brisk outside. This is definitely a must have piece.
Vince Drape Front Leather Jacket for $1,350.
ALC’s MUST HAVE leather moto jacket is a forever piece. Zips up the front with snaps. Flap pockets at chest and waist. Buckle detail at neck. Cotton ribbing on interior sleeves and underarms for stretch. Fully lined. It is that army jacket you have seen people wearing in olive green. I love it in the black leather for fall and winter. It will go great with jeans for a night out or with a dress.
Kristen Stewart was seen wearing a military style leather jacket while promoting the Twilight Saga Eclipse Movie with Robert Pattinson a few weeks ago. Her jacket is by Allsaints and is the Karst leather jacket. Allsaints is known for their edgy clothing and great leather jackets. Allsaints jackets have been seen on Emma Watson of Harry Potter as well. The jacket is $620 and available online at Allsaints. There is also a big sale going on right now on the site. Get all your drapey tops and cardigans for yourself for Fall now. Men’s styles are on sale as well.
