LOVE 'EM OR HATE 'EM

Slim fitting denim for men is an ongoing trend, usually seen in the rock, goth and skateboarders realm. Lately they have truly migrated into daily fashion attire. Tell us if you love them or hate them, our inquiring minds want to know.

COUTURE RECOMMENDS - TOO-CUTE FLATS

Comfy, casual attire is usually favored by the public. If you can’t wear sneakers to work, these red flats in an athletic-almost-ballerina-style are comfortable yet can pass for dressy, and they go great with skirts and work slacks (and jeans, too, for casual Friday).

CRAVINGS

We here at Couture chat about products incessantly. For our readers, we refer, advise and suggest. However there are certain products that cross our desks that require a call to action, so ‘cravings’ was born. Our current cravings are for: Moschino’s stylish sailor-inspired scoop neck top with pleated sleeves/bottom and Jean Paul Gaultier nautically stripped cropped peacoat -esque jacket.

Wear them separately or together for a fabulously layered mixed print look.
Ooooooh la la!

SATC MOVIE COMING TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU SOON

Ah, just seeing the initials SATC (Sex and the City), makes me yearn for a fruity martini and pine for the asphalt jungle that was the backdrop for the former HBO show and the upcoming movie. I admit, as much as I have tried, I have not been able to resist all of the pictures and trailers circulating on the internet that quietly beckon my attention. How can one not be anxious and thrilled that on May 30th, the girlsSarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis — will be back in fabulous fashionable force? Who doesn’t want to know what hijinks Samantha is up to or if Smith J. is back? Does Brady have a sibling yet? Is little Elizabeth Taylor et all still part of the story line? Will Big finally marry Carrie and what will the other starring characters — the wardrobe — be like? Considering the cult following the show had, and by all the blog accounts, the movie will be an instant hit. We will have to wait to see, but in the meantime, cosmopolitan anyone?

WALL STREET, EAU DU PERFUME?

We know that the financial markets have been in upheaval of late, just ask anyone that works at Bear Stearns. Bullish on Wall Street we are not, but that fact hasn’t deterred New York favorite cult fragrance maker Bond No. 9, from creating and adding the scent Wall Street to their current stable of fragrances.

Bond No. 9, cleverly so, doesn’t feel you have to work on Wall Street to enjoy the smell of its success. This citrus smelling, world’s first securities fragrance, with notes of sea kale, cucumber, lavender, ambergris and vetiver, is probably the only thing about Wall Street currently that does make perfect dollars and scents. Then again, I’m partial, if a bullish scent will cause an up turn in the marketplace, I say buy it!

The Wall Street fragrance is sold at bondno9.com and Saks Fifth Avenue.
