Prada: Saffiano Garden Floral Bag

 Needed to run into Costco for last-minute items. Too many people during Holiday season! I needed to get out of there, stat. However, I saw this Prada beauty sitting by their Jewelry section (chained, of course), and had to take a closer look. That's my son's hand caressing this pretty bag for comparison purposes.  

If this bag is the same as the bag on the Neiman Marcus website, then one is indeed saving a lot of money by shopping thru Costco. There is simply no comparison: $800 vs $2100, wow!

Here is the Prada bag that is being sold by Neiman Marcus for $2100

Designer: Hubert de Givenchy

I am amazed and thrilled to realize that this wonderful and iconic Designer is still around as of December, 2017. He founded The House of Givenchy 1952. The face most associated with them was that of beautiful actress, Audrey Hepburn.

  In 1988, The House of Givenchy joined LVMH  Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. This year, Mr Givenchy turned 90 y.o.

Here are just a few of his gorgeous dresses:

Designer: Marc Jacobs

Loved the years he was with Louis Vuitton!

Fashion designer MARC JACOBS (Louis Vuitton,  1997-2014) condemned political correctness in a speech at Oxford University in response to criticisms he received last year over his decision to dress white models in dreadlocks.
Jacobs spoke to around 400 students at Oxford University, arguing that it is very dangerous to say: “You can’t use this, you can’t look at that, you can’t borrow from that, you can’t be inspired by that.”
“You know, ‘stay in your own lane.’ I don’t really understand that mentality and I think it’s a very dangerous way of thinking,” he said.
Jacobs was criticized last year during Fashion Week for featuring white models in dreadlocks, a hairstyle that is typically associated with black culture. “I didn’t feel like I was doing anything wrong. I was expressing myself – these were my references and my reasons for being inspired to do it,” Jacobs argued.
In response to criticism, Jacobs has doubled down, arguing that political correctness is dangerous to creativity. “I felt attacked for doing something that I thought was my right to do,” he said. “I do feel that creative people shouldn’t have any kind of border control on what it’s okay to look at, what it’s okay to be inspired by, so I stand by that.”
Jacobs was speaking alongside Edward Enninful, the first black male editor of British Vogue magazine. Enninful told students that he has no problem with cultural appropriation as long as the original culture is given credit.
“If someone appropriates something, as long as they give credit where it’s from and give the history of where it’s from, I’m completely fine with it,” he argued. “If you are going to appropriate, just credit the original.”
