Barneys New York: Gaga's Workshop

Have you heard about Gaga's Workshop? It's a collaboration between Barneys and the iconic Lady Gaga under the creative direction of Nicola Formichetti for the holiday season of 2011. Oh how wonderful it would be like, to be in New York, witnessing the celebration launch last night.

Lady Gaga being Gaga, in a custom Chanel gown. Who else in the world cuts ribbon with a multi-color chainsaw? Brilliant!

Karl's sketch of the gown! I remember this morning I saw her tweeted, "Getting ready for the opening of GAGA'S WORKSHOP at BARNEY'S in NY tonight! Wearing custom CHANEL by Karl Lagerfeld . #PinchMeMom #OhEmGee". What a dress.

Now check out the gorgeous lady Blake Lively in Elie Saab Spring 2012 Pants Suit. It's nice to see her in something different than a dress, really. Quite refreshing, isn't it. Can't do wrong with the lace element on the shoulders and of course, the vibrant colour of the suit.

I found this military hat very intriguing, it's my favorite piece of the collection. This goes for $350. View the complete collection here. Trust me you will at least find ten items you'd die getting for Christmas.

Apparently, this project is very impressive. I'm not a Gaga fan, myself, but somehow I can feel the energy and to me, this is exciting. Very unique! What do you think? Is anybody getting anything from the collection?

Fall 2010 Shoes Trend: Leopard Pony

For those who follows my twitter, you all may have it in mind that I'm currently drooling over leopard pony hair shoes. When I am looking for the perfect pair, of course I always do a little research. Here are my findings that I want to share with you.

As always, let's begin with the ultimate holy grail. The very first pair that caught my attention are the wedge booties.

Buy them online here for USD 1195.

Another option is by the 'coolest of the cool' young and talented designer, who's also my personal favorite, Alexander Wang.

At the same time, lace-up booties are also everywhere on the runway. Now who can refuse these beauties?

When it comes to pumps, YSL always catches my attention.

Yves Saint Laurent 5 3/4" Tribtoo Pumps

Available at USD 880 from Bergdorf Goodman here.

And more Christian Louboutin for the classiest slingback.

Also from Mytheresa.com here for USD 792.

Next is for those rather feminine women. Here are the mary janes. I love the fact that it has a modern touch with the slingback and peep-toe platform.

They are USD 990 from Barneys here.

Did you notice that these shoes actually have a common element, which is the tone and the pattern. It may be difficult to understand what I'm saying now, but wait until you see these ones.

Charlotte Olympia 5.5" Polly Leopard Platform Pumps

Both are from Kirna Zabete. They are USD 1080 and USD 1067 respectively.

Finally I will end the discussion with the affordable version of the wedge booties, which are my preference style.

These are Jeffrey Campbell Tick, priced at $179.95

So what do you think? Which one should I get? Which one should you get? I guess perhaps one pair is not enough!
