High above 42nd Street in his new raw and unrenovated space, grand master of couture, Oscar D La Renta displayed his meticulously constructed Resort 2012 collection. With Picasso’s Cubist period as inspiration, the designs looked like they could’ve been lifted from a canvas or sculpture. We saw pieces that were beaded and embellished— just how his ladies like it. The artist’s Spanish roots were clearly celebrated in the collection’s matador jackets; high-waist, narrow-cut pants; embellished waists and pompom trim flamenco hats made of construction paper. If you thought the headgear was a bit over the top, a polka-dot evening dress was de la Renta at his best. And there was more where that came from. Flouncy gowns in shades of flamenco red, blossom pink, and vivid green hues will be lighting up dance floors come the holidays. So what can we attribute Oscars full of life collection?? Maybe it’s the new address.

Let’s get one thing straight, you can never have too many pairs of shoes! Agreed? No matter what your style is—modern, retro, hippie chic or classic—having a personal collection of shoes is essential to a true Fashionista. I truthfully have an ever-expanding collection myself, but my latest fave is this amazing pair of espadrilles from Valentino. The lace heal is to die for. I even have the JackiesBoutique.com design room creating new versions in other colors.
What are you favorite shoes of the season?

Kate Middleton changed into a second wedding dress before the royal weddingreception at Buckingham Palace! Although not nearly as dramatic, she looked just as breathtaking in this white evening gown with a sparkling embellished belt also designed Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. I adore the little shrug that finishes just above her tiny waist. This has just the right balance for her shape. I actually have this Shrug in pink by Chanel and have worn it with everything from jeans to dress pants. The key is in the elegant minimal detail with only one embellishment on a monochromatic palette. Keep it simple and make sure that the shrug doesn’t finish to long or your look will go from polished to frumpy in a second.
Bravo Kate. I’m delighted with your style! You are the one to watch.

My schedule was crazy today. My morning was spent editing posts for www.TodaysTruffles.com (FYI: Did you see the cancer fighting banana Ice Cream?) , we were picking out some New Summer Swimsuit Selections that you haven’t seen yet, and we had to make some final adjustments on this beautiful new tropical print halter top that will be coming in for Summer. With so much to do, I needed to wear something comfy and I couldn’t wait to try on this delicately dramatic new pink halter from www.JackiesBoutique.com . The top will be released this week… Yea!– Of coarse I had to try it out so I could give you my honest opinion of how wearable the style is for day as well as night. I love… love… love it! The fabric is so petal soft and comfortable. Plus the color is a to-die-for pink. I paired it with my Michael Kors white jeans and sandles.
Tops Best features: ~ Braided halter accent on one shoulder ~ amazingly soft comfortable washable fabric ~ and awesome drape front with bias cut naturally ruching bodice.
This one will be coming along with me on my next vacation for sure.

Donna Karen makes a statement for Spring 2011 with a deconstructed jacket and long skirt. The dramatic approach to sexy. Love the color. Who doesn’t look good in this color?
Print pants are making a come back this Spring. Get ready to rock the new look. I’m thinking Florals.
Vintage lace in dramatic styles will step away from the usual into the unusual. But do you have what it takes to step with it?
Marchesa Spring New York 2011
All cinched up. A great way to make a waist, when there was none. The extended shoulders…Are they making a come back?
Michael Kors RTW New york Spring 2011
There is something to be said for a man who stays close to his roots. Ralph Lauren may not be setting trends but they still make clothes that make a woman feel feminine yet playful.
Ralph Lauren Spring 2011 NY RTW
The length may be longer than expected for spring but it’s the shoulders that are the big trend of the moment. Soft shoulder pads and carefully draped fabrics soften last seasons structured shapes.
Sophie Theallet RTW Spring 2011 NY
Oscar De Larenta…
Need I say more. Even when you didn’t think he could make a statement, he finds away to add color to a classic that even Audry would adore…
That’s why he is the master.
