Anselm Reyle Rocks Dior; Nina Ricca & Chanel Promise Spring

The new Anselm Reyle for Dior accessories collection has hit flagship stores around the world, and it's all for the taking on avenue Montaigne in Paris.  I'm really loving the neon camouflage prints and am (almost) ready to toss my boring blacks and grays for a Reyle pop of color!  German-born Reyle lent his talents to Dior maquillage earlier this year.  

My pick...the larger camo clutch

Great wedges...for those who arrive & depart in limos...not sure they'd get you very far in and around the Metro! 


Directly across avenue Montaigne is a personal favorite, Nina Ricca.  The delicate feminine designs are a making us all yearn for Spring breezes...!

Yes, please.


And finally...Chanel, rue Cambon.  Destination Divine.

Love love love the new enamel chains featured on bags and belts
Perfect hair accent...also great high on the shoulder

Lace and leather driving gloves...for your Eos, Mom!
Craving this particular shade of blue..... 
 My still my heart:  The classic jumbo flap in champagne metallic leather...

Another glam flap everyone's new favorite:  rose gold.
Fabulous belt over tiered pleated shorts.


Thanks so much for viewing!

Shine Sparkle Smile!

Love, Myra

New Trends in Paris: Florals, Collars and Cuffs!

This week it was time for a I headed to the Left Bank and Lucia Iraci.  Lucia has been the darling of the fashion world for many years here in Paris and I'm lucky enough to grab a rendez-vous with her at her gorgeous salon every four months or so.

This week I also visited the young artist Heloise Guyard.  Her charming atelier has stacks of watercolors, and this 'apres Redoute' piece caught my eye as a possible addition to my botanical print collection.  Heloise also paints her floral designs on handbags, and I think it's a brilliant way to make your favorite Louis Vuitton bag your very own!

Modern Love: Seeing Neon in Paris

Everywhere I roam this week there's a bit neon winking at me.  I'm drawn to the bright yellow and orange are a few photos I took on my prowls.

Victoire...incredible neon yellow lace dress
Belt your turnouts!
So chic lime green organza detail on the caridgan.
Pop of bright orange on neutrals
Divine quilted modal bag with sporty stripe.

Tone down your neon with a classic cut jacket and great shoes.
Love this Stephen Sprouse-inspired combo...
Even French macarons are bright yellow....

Love love love these leopard trekkers
Not for the faint at heart...thinking about this ICE yellow watch for me.
Marc Jacobs display at Franck et Fils on rue Passy
Kenzo temptations...every girl needs a Kenzo scarf...go for one with neon. 
Couldn't resist this off-theme ballerina window at Repetto...we are all born to dance!

Happy Valentine's Day!  Love, Myra
