Entries in miu miu (10)



Last night, I simply could not sleep for the life of me! Hours past while I stared at my ceiling… until I finally gave into the insomnia. And how did I choose to spend the wee hours of the morning? Making my début on polyvore, of course! This collage was inspired by Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris (one of 2011 year’s most beautiful films, if you ask me). I could totally see a modern Adriana - Marion Cotillard’s character - wearing something like this, no? Ooh, the things you do when you’re unable to sleep at night :) 
wren leopard coat / miu miu crepe dress / faux fur hat (can undoubtedly be picked up at your local vintage store) / karen walker tortoise sunglasses / la perla bra + panty set (any one will do) / leather driving gloves / olympia le tan clutch / creed's love in black / butter london lacquer in tramp stamp (unfortunate name, great color) / falke tights / miu miu's glittery fantasy boot. 

(p.s. - are you on polyvore? drop your username in the comments so I can follow you!)

I’ve never been one to rock brogues, but this pair by Miu Miu is pretty rad. In fact, I’d even go so far to say that they’re the perfect fall shoe! I’m a firm believer that animal prints are like neutrals - they can work with almost anything. Since my trusty pony-hair leopard pumps broke last fall (they were several years old and I wore them to death - I was sad, but it was their time to go), I've been on the hunt for a replacement pair. These beautiful Miu Mius probably won't be it, but it's fun to dream!


miu miu + hailee steinfeld

A few weeks ago, Miu Miu (a favorite fashion house of mine) rolled out their Autumn ’11 ad campaign. The ads, shot by Bruce Weber, feature 14-year-old fashion darling Hailee Steinfeld - isn’t she a doll? I find it interesting that Miu Miu chose such a young starlet to be the face of the collection, but it works... perhaps because Miuccia Prada’s whimsical designs are near-ageless. I’d practically give my left arm for a pair of those sparkly shoes or that blush-colored floral dress. Can't wait 'til these ads appear in the glossies so I can tack them to my inspiration board :)


she wore an itsy bitsy teenie weenie...

I’m flying to LA for a week on Monday (can’t wait!) and I would LOVE to by myself a new maillot de bain for the trip. I’m head-over-heels for the three above - particularly the sweet Miu Miu bikini in the center. To the left of the Miu Miu bikini we have Shimmi’s blondie star-print bikini, and to the right is Chloé’s scallopped textured bikini. Aren’t they darling? I’m interested to see what you plan to wear to the beach/pool this summer - I have such cute readers + I know your picks would make me hyperventilate. Feel free to leave a link to your swimsuit of choice in a comment below!

Here’s what I need in my closet: Miu Miu’s “silk volant detail cocktail dress.” Isn’t it wonderful? It’d be perfect for a State Dinner at the White House or an evening at The Rainbow Room (that is, were it still open). I imagine that if Grace Kelly were a starlet today, she’d be all over this. As always, if anyone would like to donate this to me, I won’t protest :)
