Sorry fro the lack of updates… I have been travelling for the last month and have lacked fashion updates!!!
Over the last month I ventured thru London, Paris, and Rome. Shopping at Saville Row and King St in London, Gallerie Layfette and Spanish Step shops made me realize that we lack options in North America. Free standing Paul Smiths, Duchamps, YSL’s, etc.. that you may only find in New York or Las Vegas if your lucky.The Free standing stores carry everything from Runway to Full Shoe and handbag collections to choose from. This made for enjoyable viewing, but the best part was how locals created a mixed bag look with the high end options. H&M, Zara, and a million knock off stores that take Runway Fashion and knock it off for affordable prices, where packed at all times. Combining the low cost high fashion look with designer heels and handbags seemed to be the trend. Lets be realistic what normal person can afford to dress in High End Designer head to toe?? Maybe 10% of the population!!! Could have something to do with the huge Financial issues in the US and Europe!
One of my favorite activities was touring the exibit of Kate Middleton’s dress at Buckingham Palace. There was a movie about how Sarah Burton for Alexander Mcqueen created the wedding dress… and a full room showcasing the dress, shoes, earrings and tiara she wore for her special day. It took hours to get in and see but was well worth the wait.Check out a few Vacation pics below.
While I was in Europe Alicia was in Las Vegas for a girls only weekend. With the tempture averaging about 41 c it was hard to leave the pool, but in true Elite Image style she still managed to find some awesome finds. One of her favorite places to visit is designerfashionclearance.com check out the pics below to see what she found for a grand Total of $287 american for both pairs.
We will have lots updates coming soon as we begin the busy fall shop season!!
