This in from Saks Fifth Avenue's couture guru Greg Seitter: 

This Celine handbag is the hottest bag in Philly right now and it's blowing off the shelves at the Bala Cynwyd Saks Fifth Avenue. It's available in black, chocolate brown, navy, red and orange as well as different sizes and textures including black python... (That sounds hot.)

It retails for $1,450. (Ouch.) 

Says Seitter: "Wear it during the day with blue jeans and a blazer or black leggings and an oversize cardigan. You can also wear it for evening with black pants and a fabulous top or an amazing black dress."

Sounds like good advice from an expert. What do you think about the bag? Looks pretty regular to me.

Celine fans may be interested in seeing the designer's Spring 2011 collection, that Phoebe Philo debuted yesterday in Paris yesterday. Very minimalist. Much like local fashion fave Nicole Miller's grouping that debuted last month.

In other Bala Cynwyd Saks news, Seattle-bred designer Chris Benz -  known for his slouchy, yet sophisticated women's wear who is  often referred to as a modern day Armani  except for his use of color -  will he in town Wednesday, Oct. 6, for a Girls Night Out event. Think  light bites and bubbily. Tickets are $30 at the door. Benz will be back  on Nov. 16 at the Philadelphia Country Club  for a charity luncheon and  to present his spring 2011 fashion show. Tickets are $150. For more information, call  Dorothy at 610 277-1860 ext. 101. Laurel House feeds, clothes and shelters women who are victims of domestic violence.

 

 

 

 

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
