What is it about the Alexander McQueen skull print that attracts such a fan base? I have a few McQueen skull scarves in my collection and look forward to finding the next color that will call my name. There are just so many choices out there.
Just now while doing my weekly browse, I noticed that over at Zappos they added a few new Alexander McQueen scarves since I last checked. The one that caught my eye is the new “Skull Lace Scarf!”
What’s so special about this scarf, as it is hard to tell from the picture, is that the background design is lace which gives off a smoke-effect. Kinda cool. And lace, if you didn’t know by now, is going to be a huge trend for Fall!
It’s boating season y’all! And what pair of shoes are you going to sport while running around your boat? Sperry Top Sliders! It’s really a no brainier, these are the “Authentic Original Boat Shoe.”
What’s so special about the Sperry Top-Siders is that they incorporate everything you would look for when shopping for boating shoes: 360° Lacing System, keeps your feet dry with the stain and water resistant shell, the classic boat-chic handsewn moccasin look, rust-proof eyelets, contoured arch support and shock-absorbing EVA heel cup for comfort, and most importantly, not only does the rubber bottom prevent you from falling on your bum, but it’s made with their special no-marking rubber Wave-Siping™ outsole (no black streaks on your friends boat!). And at only $80 it’s a great investment.
Sperry Top-Siders can be found online at PiperLime. My favorite color of the season, and last year, GREY!
Has there ever been a jacket that you find yourself bouncing back and forth between either purchasing or resisting? That’s what I’m currently going through with the new spring Burberry Cotton Jacket. I of course love everything about this jacket – the navy blue color and the overall mini trench style. However, a couple weeks ago when I going through my jacket closet, doing a little spring cleaning, I re-discovered an old Banana Republic jacket that I purchased a couple years back. And it looks identical. Only real noticeable difference, is that the jacket that I purchased from BR is made 50% Lyocell (a soft silk like material that is resistant to wrinkles) and 50% cotton and the Burberry topper is 100% cotton. The only thing I hate about my BR jacket is that the belt always slides off – it’s so annoying! Which is another reason why I’m leaning towards the Burberry Cotton Jacket.
The navy double-breasted cotton jacket features logo-embossed pewter button fastenings at front, hook-fastening tab at collar, a buckle-fastening belt at waist, short lapels, front pockets, a wind flap, buttoned tabs at cuffs, a storm flap, buttoned epaulets and is fully lined. Materials: 100% cotton; main lining: 97% cotton, 2% nylon, 1% elastane; sleeve lining: 100% cotton.
The Burberry Double-Breast Cotton Jacket is available at Nordstroms. Retails for $495
I know I’ve mentioned this a million times in various posts here on The Fashion Row, but I love waterfall draped style sweaters. I have at-least a couple dozen that were designed in this fashion. From cheap thrills to the little bit more pricey and everything in between. At this moment, my favorite two pieces in my closet are soft pink oversized cashmere with hoody by Jamison and a navy blue cotton by the designer Line.
Adding to my little collection.. today the mailman came with my Gold Hawk package, and unlike any of my other sweaters before, this one is designed a little bit different. There is a piece of fabric that reaches from my arm to my side — think bird wings. Or better yet, “Hawk”. hah
I do love the Sweetheart Shrug, but the arm situation just needs some getting useto.
The Shrug is very light weight with a transparent neckline detail (100% Silk) and knit back (85% Silk, 15% Cashmere).
Find the Gold Hawk Sweetheart Shrug available at Couture Candy for $194
Just make note that they don’t show you how the sleeves look really look in person on the website. In my opinion the sleeves are a bit of a challenge.
A must in my book.
After receiving the last Nordstrom Holiday catalog I rushed to my near by downtown Seattle Nordies and picked up two pairs, in light grey and mocha.
The slippers are boot-style and are made of fuzzy fleece which makes them crazy soft totally warm. The bottom is made with a semi-thick memory foam sole that is beyond comfortable. And did I mention these are totally affordable. Only $24 a pair.
You can wear them high or flop over the top and wear short style.
You must discover how amazing these are..
As previously promised for all you crazy McQ fans, here are a couple pictures of my newest addition to make its way to my Alexander McQueen Scarf collection: the sailor-chic Lobster and Skull silk scarf shawl.
At first I wasn’t that crazy about this style, but once I got it in my hands and started twisting and playing around with the look, it quickly became my favorite summer time scarf.
side note: Sorry about the ugly watermarking over the images. In the past I’ve had my images stolen by eBay sellers, so I just did it as an extra precaution.

Latest pair of sunnies to make their way into my eyewear closet: The Alcamena by Roberto Cavalli!
I ordered a pair last week and while I sit here eagerly waiting for them to arrive, I couldn’t help but do a little post. (check back next week some time for model pics).
What I love about the Alcamena sunglasses is the reptile patterned along the metal arms (a cavalli signature) and the hint of Swarovski crystal accents along the outer frame. I grabbed a pair in Gunmetal, but also available in Gold (pictured above)
Find the Roberto Cavalli Alcamena Sunglasses for $418 at Forzieri
My new sunnies are finally here..
I should change the title from “i love my” to “i am OBSESSED with my” new Claudia motorcycle leather jacket! Designed by Savannah (who previously worked with Alexander McQueen) + (actress) Sienna Miller for their hot new label, twenty8twelve (name represents Sienna’s birthday, 28 December).
What I love most about this jacket, gosh even though there’s really so many things, are the tassels, soft leather and most importantly, it’s so comfortable to wear. The fit is really amazing.
The jacket is cropped and slim fitted in very soft distressed leather. This jacket also features a slim blazer style collar, double zip fastening that can be zipped on either side, small chest pocket, two zipped front pockets, sleeves with full length zip and tasseled zip pulls throughout. Love the tassels!!!!!!
