What a perfect opportunity to introduce the Anna Sui for Tumi collection since I’m venturing cross country today and traveling back to LaLa Land. Its been real, its been fun Florida but work on the opposite coast is calling my name. With 8 bags in counting, and the majority being black, I bet I’ll be wishing I had a whole fleet of these Tumi creations when I’m lost in a sea of bags at LAX baggage claim.

The Anna Sui luggage collab with Tumi will be hitting stores Spring 2012 and will be sold in select Tumi stores and

Some call the Academy Awards the pinnacle  of award season and yet this years red carpet was good,  but it really didn’t have that “wow” factor that it normally has for me. A more simple and understated elegance seemed to rule on the Oscar carpet this year. Truth be told I would gladly overlook the average red carpet if only my girl Rooney Mara would have won best actress for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Despite the let down, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Mrs. Jolie strut her stuff in that black Atelier Versace. She worked that dress with its thigh-high slit for all it was worth. Mrs. Paltrow, as usual, looked flawless in white. I loved the matching floor sweeping cape she wore on her arrival, it was so handsome and very old Hollywood. And last but not least, Miss Mara knocked it out of the park, you can really never go wrong with Givenchy. She is such a fresh beauty and wears couture with an ease. I hope to see Rooney nominated again next year for perhaps a Dragon sequel and her redemption title for best actress.
Meryl Streep – enough is enough.

Just in time for spring, I bring you the floral phenomenon. Flowers are really making a comeback this spring/ summer. Layer them, wear them head to toe, accessorize with them – floral prints are the new black so dig out all those patterned frocks and flaunt them like they’re hot.
