Sorry. . .

I’ve been completely MIA and I apologize.  But sometimes, life gets in the way of fashion.  I don’t know if anyone still reads this thing, but Jolie in the City will be back better than ever.  In fact, I just purchased my tix for the IFB Conference for NYFW.  I’m looking forward to networking with other bloggers and learning how to do this even better.

Muted elegance was the look at Chanel for Spring 2011 Haute Couture.  Karl send confections in black, white, gray, pink, lavender and blue down the runway.  The look is proper–what a young lady coming out in society in the 50s would wear–with some modern looks thrown in (i.e. the skinny pants with the signature jacket).  Great collection.

This is the collection fashion dreams are made of.  The collection was pure poetry in motion: the old Dior “new look” is fresh again.  The silhouettes hearken back to the 1950s glamorous era and every detail is pitch perfect from the hair to the red lip-stain to the gloves to the head pieces.  Fabuleux Monsieur Galliano.

Alexis Mabille presents his collection on the first day of the Haute Couture Spring 2011 collections.  The look is simple, 50s retro-chic.  The first look in navy (or is it black?) is my favorite look: it’s what a tuxedo jacket would look like if it dared to be a gown.  Love the bow detail as well.

Haute Spot: Baronesse Helle

The first Haute Spot nod of 2011 goes to Danish aristocrat Baroness Helle Reedtz-Thott.  She caught my eye in this casual glam look of jeans, black turtleneck, boots, and a fur thrown in for good measure.  You guys know I’m mad about fur this season.  Where was the Baroness going you might ask?  She was visiting Crown Princess Mary of Denmark in the hospital who just gave birth to twins.
