The vice of Helmut Lang

Did you know that the brand Helmut Lang was once own by Prada? It did but just for a couple of years. Then Link Theory Holdings relaunched the brand  in 2007 and with the talent of the new creative directors Michael and Nicole Colovos, Helmut Lang has become a big success in the fashion world.  
By keeping  the minimalist and edgy vision of its original creator (1986-2005) it has found a special love among us fashionistas. In my opinion, it has master the art of making leather pieces unforgettable  and every jacket I've seen has become a must have obsession.
I enclose my picks of the Pre-Fall 2012 Collection.

Pointy Pumps are back!

If these beauties are back that means sharp feet pain is back, but who cares!  we are used to it and they makes us look so chic and timeless.
I have to say that the king designer of pointy pumps is Mr. Jimmy Choo, his Choo 24/7 Collection will stand the test of time.
In 2006, when they were very trendy I used to wear them a lot with jeans, this time I have been wearing them with formal capri trousers and they simply look amazing without showing a lot of leg.
My best advice is: take your flats with you, just in case ;)

Paris-Bombay Pre-fall 2012 Chanel Collection

Oh my Karl! you did it again... As I look through the pre-fall 2012 collection (in my sofa with my Ipad :( ) I day dream about walking through the magnificent runway that the Grand Palais in Paris provided for the Chanel's show, every guest enjoyed a great view of the collection while seating behind a very long banquet table with flowers, fruits and pastries decorating the atmosphere of the already majestic venue. An extravagant Indian inspired collection shined through every detail of the artisanal embroidery in all of the 78 outfits of the collection. You simply have to see it  Chanel Video

New Tom Ford nail polish!!

I am so excited to try the new collection of nail polish by Tom Ford! It has 16 shades and there is one called "Bitter Bitch", love it or hate?... I believe the price tag will be higher than a Chanel nail polish. Decide for yourself but I think I love all the colours :

Speaking of movies...

Is there a movie that you simply can get tired of watching? Well, I am an expert on that and sometimes it worries me I don't get tired of re-watching the same movies over and over again. For example, my favorite movie since I can remember is Superman (1979 with Christopher Reeve) isn't that weird??? Now that I am a grown woman I still enjoy watching it like when I was a little flash to me: There are no Supermen out there ready to save me!!! LOL so pathetic but makes me happy.
Other movies that I love memorising  are The Devil Wears Prada (shocker for a fashion blogger, right!), Amelie (french movie), Ghost and very stupid chick flicks like The Sweetest Thing and How to lose a guy in 10 days among others, please do not judge me by this movies, I have great taste in this too but it is just  my thing!.. I guess no matter your movie selection we love watching them 1000 times and more!

The Vice of Movies

This vice plays with your emotions, it makes you cry, makes you laugh and scares the bleep out of you. There is something about making a movie night out that keeps you coming back for more even if you have to pay 9 euros (Italy), $11.95 (Canadian Dollars), $9 (US Dollar) and thank GOD $50 (Mexican Pesos = about $3.80 USD) plus all the good stuff for the tummy!!!
I need to confess my little tacky secret...I am a food and beverage smuggler! Half of me says," who cares!!! no one will notice the opening of my canned soda with the noise of the movie" but the other half is mortified when my boyfriend makes so much noise with the bag of Doritos. Yes it is very very tacky but I love planning what will we smuggle the day before and go wild on our junk food cravings of the week. I sincerely apologize to all the movie theaters I've been, I do sometimes purchase food there but it is way more fun my way!
No matter who you go with this is a vice that will indulge your eyes, your brain, your perspective and your sweet tooth! VIVA LAS MOVIES!
