Dark,

glamorous,

sheer and

strong looks

won me over this week....

Silhouettes that celebrate the female form,

Fabrics that tease and flirt,

while still holding on to their

mystery...

Power, the subtle kind

not soft but seering...

But subtleties will, of course, have

to be overtaken,

by bold and daring displays of

what makes fashion

Fashion Week Fall 2012 RTW Part I

I love the showing of the new collections, the surprises, re-visiting classics.  I love getting excited about so very different things.  Getting swept away.  Come with me, I hardly know where to begin...

When in Belgium, must see Paris...

We decided that since we were so close, it would be nice to spend some time in Paris.

First we enjoyed a beautiful dinner at L'Avenue on Avenue Montaigne. 

What is Paris if not the perfect setting for romance? 

What is more romantic than a suite with windows framing

the Eiffel Tower?

And how does one leave Paris, without a stop through

bliss, beauty and joy...

I shared with you a peak into my closely guarded closet.

You may have seen a hand bag or two,

maybe even a few pairs of shoes.

But a spell was cast over my closet

Valentino is its muse...

 Goodbye for now Paris, I'm sure we will see each other soon.

Get ready South Africa, are you guys coming along?!

Musings on Belgium...

If you've been following me on Twitter,

you know I'm having a little adventure.  Belgium called,

and I answered.  I thought I would share with you a taste

 of Belgium...Fashion, of course, came to mind first!

Clever & powerful,
