There are articles about how to decrease your carbon footprint and live a green life without looking grungy. You can also buy furniture, clothes and all kinds of cool stuff and if you subscribe, you can enter to win all kinds of goodies. Now that is a win-win for everyone including mother earth.

Martin Margiela is the wonderful Belgian designer who is incredibly camera shy. There are no documented pictures of him. He has not been designing his own line for many seasons but if you want an original designed by him, you can find it at
1stbids.com. The sale is still going on and if you have deep pockets, there are still lots of cool pieces left to buy. Here are some of my favorites.
I love Bill Cunningham, he has been capturing fashion forever for NY times. He does a segment called on the street every Sunday. This one is covering how people looked on the street during Paris Fashion Week. Check it out. It is very interesting.

Lanvin has been enjoying a great surge in popularity specially among young parisians. The fall 2010 Collection, however, had some of the ugliest looks at really high prices; we are talking $12000 for a jacket and $4000 to $6000 for a pair of leather pants. You can't pay me enough to wear any of these numbers.

I admit that I am not a big fan of full skirts on me, but if you are skinny on top or have an hour glass figure, full skirts will look great on you. There was a lot to choose from this season; here are my favorites. These looks are all from Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Show.
I specially like the egg shaped sleeveless ones from Marni and Giambattista Valli (looks number 1 and 2). The last two looks are from Vera Wang and Calvin Klein.
