Ladies of the Convention

leave a comment »

The ladies of Democratic and Republic National Conventions have looked unbelievable these past few nights, charming the crowds with their speeches and style.  And although the objectives of their speeches at the conventions have focused on introducing the candidates, emphasizing the candidates’ legislative records, and showing their husbands’ softer sides, I would have also liked to see the women introduce themselves and discuss their own accomplishments.  Aside from being “Mom-in-Chief,” Janna Ryan is a graduate from Wellesley College and worked as a tax attorney and lobbyist; Jill Biden has earned two master’s degrees in English and a doctorate in education from the University of Delaware; and before becoming the First Lady, Michelle Obama graduated from Princeton University cum laude, earned her JD from Harvard, and worked in Big Law as an attorney.  BOOM.

Lanvin For Ladurée

leave a comment »

In case Ladurée macarons were not decadent enough, Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz has teamed up with the Parisian patisserie staple to create fashionable boxes for the macaron company.  Vogue describes the “whimsical” boxes as featuring “sketched faces of women and a red grosgrain ribbon.”  The Lanvin for Ladurée treats will be available in France and the UK in late September.  Thanks for the tip, Dara.  I wish we were there to scoop them up.

Daily Dose: 11-1-11 {November Weekend}

November Weekend
November Weekend.  
So I’ve taken to Polyvore–an easy way to throw all of my expensive, over-the-top fashion desires into one design board.  Recently, I’ve been wearing gunmetal Chanel polish, hot pink MakeUp Forever lipstick, and searching for a chunky cableknit white sweater to wear with a fantastic green coat.  May the fashion police and lords of the bank have mercy on my wallet. Click below the jump for a link to every item in the board.  Happy November.
