I did take a time-out from all this work to go to the Nordstrom Designer Preview for Fall 2012 with Kathryn, at the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel this past Wednesday night. It was fantastic, even on just four hours of sleep over a 36-hour period, and we'll be putting up a nice big post sometime in the next few days on the entire event and all the beautiful fall fashions. But in the meantime, I thought I'd share some of the pretties I snapped on my iPhone - specifically, some seriously great designer accessories.
Valentino = *happy sighs*
(I just noticed that they seem to have been unlaced - I was too distracted by the amazing laser-cut lace-like detailing on the toe and heel of this shoe to have caught that. So gorgeous.)
(Oh my goodness, I want these so bad, it hurts a little. Note to self: buy some lotto tickets this weekend...)
(I swear...it's like they're just taunting me now. So beautiful. So insanely out of bounds, budget-wise.)
And this isn't mentioning the Valentino Rockstud Small Leather Tote (though the color was more like this than the brownish-red - you can get a peek at it in photo of the Ruffle Boot above - the bag is to the right of the boot) that I wanted desperately to bring home with me. You know...if I won the lottery or something.
Correction: Valentino = *wistful sighs*
And with the Olympics opening ceremony still fresh on my mind, I have to share this little bit of Alexander McQueen too:
Alexander McQueen Bi-Color Stud Knucklebox Clutch, Folk Clutch, and Britannia Skull Leather Box Clutch
And I already posted this photo of us on our Facebook page, but in case you missed it...
