Fashion: Details from Louis Vuitton & Zara

Lately I haven’t had much time to hit the stores in my city but on my recent trip to NYC I did take a very quick tour of the shops on 5th Avenue (I know – I feel very lucky). These gorgeous fabrics and intricate patterns from Louis Vuitton and Zara caught my attention…but I ended up leaving NYC without even one purchase (unbelievable, right?).

Fashion: Zara

On March 14 Zara opened its largest American store at 666 Fifth Ave (52nd & 5th Ave). My parents went over to check out the action and – surprise – they snapped this photo of the all-white line-up of mannequins.

Lucky me – I’ll be in NYC at the end of the week so I’ll be able to check out the display in person! Zara, here I come!

The Friday Five: Zara Kids

My nephews are in Toronto so I’m heading over to spend the weekend with them at my parents’ place (after Fashion Week, that is). So excited! In honour of my nephews’ Canadian vacation, I thought I would do a kid-related Friday Five featuring white clothes from Zara. (Yes, I know, some of you may believe that white clothes and kids don’t really mix. Well, who cares, I say. The kids are going to get dirty no matter what colour of clothes they wear so why not dress them in white?)
