Today’s Obsession: Helmut Lang

Instead of having a weekly or monthly obsession over an article of clothing or a piece of jewelry, I suffer from daily obsessions. This might have something to do with all of the hours I spend in department stores, boutiques and closets. This doesn’t mean that tomorrow I will be over today’s obsession. It just means that tomorrow I will have another obsession to add on today’s obsession.

So, as I was sitting down for dinner, I found myself really obsession over today’s obsession (I may or may not suffer from OCD) so I decided that I had to blog about it. Today’s obsession which will still be tomorrow’s obsession is Helmut Lang. Check out some of the beauties below. I would describe the pieces below as simple and elegant with a slight edge. The jersey drapes so beautifully – it’s DELICIOUS!

fabulous flats

Its at that time of year when we begin to put our sandals in storage and replace them with flats for the colder weather. Flats are so elegant and can really bring a sophisticated touch to your outfit.

Gems on Display

Please keep your jewelry organized so when you go for an item, it isn’t tangled and you can find it easily. I love to keep my jewelry on trays. www.gemsondisplay.com has great black trays with black tray liners. Very inexpensive and keeps all of my jewelry super organized.

If you prefer to hang your jewelry, an elegant  jewelry tree like the one pictured here is a great option. This is available on Amazon. com
