Oldest Purse in the World Found

Germany is home to the oldest purse is the world apparently dating back to 2,200 B.C. The owner obviously loved that bag because she was buried with it. The purse is accessorized with …dog teeth??… but hey that means she must have been a style icon of the times !!

Here is a picture of the bag: Oldest Purse in the World

Michelle Obama

Our First Lady Mrs. Michelle Obama is certainly a walking fashion statement at every occasion.

From the campaign trail to White House state dinners, Michelle O appeals to every woman in this nation. J. Crew cardigans paired with designer labels attracts the attention of fashion critics and inspires us all.

She made little known designers, Jason Wu and Isabel Toledo, household names after President Obama’s inauguration in 2009. Both designers now have affordable lines with famous stores, Target & Payless Shoes.

And of course she selected the always fashionable & truly classic American designer Michael Kors to dress her for her official picture.

Mrs. O gives us all some inspiration!

Our favorite Duchess has been busy these last few weeks while her hubby, Prince William, was away in the Falkland Islands on duty.

Kate’s best outfits while on her own solo & joint-appearances are very stylish and range from high street brands to upscale 1940′s reminiscent outfits and finally she wears pants on a royal appearance!

Copy Kate’s Reiss Shola Dress for Less !!!

 

Now it is America’s turn thru Banana Republic to wear a more affordable version of the Reiss “Shola” dress Kate wore after returning home from her honeymoon to meet with President Obama and the First Lady.  I have to admit I think Reiss’s version looks more expensive and very tailored but it should for $340. Banana Republic made a more afforable version at $130 available in black & almond but it does not have the bandage detail like the original Reiss dress.

Of the two which would you rather wear?!?!

  Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

We should all admit we set our alarms early that Friday morning last April to watch Kate Middleton walk down the aslie and marry her beau Prince William, the elder son of the beloved Diana, Princess of Wales. As an American girl with no royalty of our own (OK maybe we have the Kennedy Family but still where are all the tiaras?!) I have always loved those Royal Brits.

 

Now that we have a new young princess to look to for fashion concepts it has been an exciting year! While The Duchess of Cambridge is  considered the girl-next-door who shops at High Street stores like Zara & Whistles she still manages to wow us with stunning gowns by lux designers like Alexander McQueen. Everything she wears sells out before I even open up the latest article online and it looks like I am not the only person who realized this. Since that saphire blue Issa engagement dress, trendy knock-off versions of various clothes and accessories are being sold all over the world. This section of my blog will advise on similar pieces worn by Catherine  that are available since  the actual items she owns sell out in hours!…but I’m sure these items will sell out just as quickly so check back often!
