London Favorites

Everyone in London probably knows all these dining hot spots, but these are my favorites because they are consistently good and just plain fun.  Best of all, the evening dress code in London is men in great sports jackets and ladies in terrific dresses (opaque hose now that Fall is here) or great dressy black […]

This is a little late but I thought I would post it anyway because I think it’s so interesting…just a few more scenes from the organized mayhem outside and inside the Prada show as everyone waits their turn to get in and then proceeds to enter Prada’s own special venue.  Then, a special moment for […]

Fashion Week Milan: What To Wear?

I choose a simple but not-so-simple Prada sleeveless dress with velvet panels insets and a lace underskirt for the Prada Spring Summer 2011 Show in Milano.  I added a simple belt and sequined vintage platform shoes and I was ready to go.  It was perfect for comfort and dinner after the show. -The Brunette Recommend […]
