sm_GGroc-WDWent to the opening reception for Ella Vickers‘ flagship shop on the avenue in Greenwich last evening. Ella is a charming and talented sailor and entrepreneur who began designing bags out of the retired sailcloth of the yacht Columbia, the first 12-meter vessel to win the Americas cup, after sailing on her as first mate. The well-edited designs, superb construction and utter usability of the bags made them an immediate success with boating aficionados in the loop. Now Ella Vickers Sailcloth Collection (EVSC) is busting out into the broader market. The season may be over here in New England, but you don’t need to be a boater to fall in love with this eco-friendly bags.

Along-side Ella’s bags and accessories in this high-rent neighborhood, is the sublime portraiture of photographer Koren Reyes.  Check out the pets and maternity pictures on her beautiful website; Korenreyes.com. She somehow manages to turn what could be unbearable cuteness into true art.

I make it a policy not to just troll other blogs and regurgitate what others have done. But I will break my own rule when someone has posted something that I have to kick myself for not finding on my own. Today’s post comes courtesy of Object Lesson, a cool blog and one of the many fans of artLAB, an Etsy shop which grabbed my attention and sent me on an knee-jerk shopping binge. Thanks Object Lesson! (well, my closet thanks you but my budget thinks you’re the devil.)

The shelter magazine industry continues its grisly decline…

Today, industry insider Stacy Kunstel, reports in her excellent tweets at StacyStyle that Metropolitan Home is going belly up by the end of the year.  I don’t know about you, but it makes me feel a bit queasy.

Short and billowy bubble-icious skirts, harem pants (again), frenetic prints and classic black and white; Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is over. With designs that range from romantic (Venexiana and Georges Chakra) to architectonic, (Trias and Alexandre Herchcovitch) the spring 2010 shows give us plenty of mood and color options to work into our own wardrobes.  Like you, I’m always looking to translate a few elements from the runway into my personal style. Here’s a roundup of some of the looks that grabbed my attention this season:
