Now presenting the long waiting Fashion's Night Out exclusive, the Chanel Khaki collection ( well, 1/3 of it). On September 10th, amidst the hoopla of FNO and a sighting by Rafael Nadal on 52nd street. I waltzed into Saks Fifth Avenue to scoop out the collection after my journey to Chanel's Madison Ave location. Saks had all three polishes in stock but no testers, so I picked up Khaki Vert ( swatches coming soon) and Khaki Brun. After my purchases I headed to Washington Square to meet up with the girls and share my FNO purchase. Everyone came to the consensus after comparing the polishes that Khaki Brun was an instant fave.
Why? Khaki Vert is army green and I think its harder to pull off than Jade green unless you are wearing warmer tones. I currently have Khaki Vert on my toes and while it complements my tone, I heel like its not an "everyday" nail color to sport- but then again remember when Jade had this dilemma? Since I wear more black on occasion, Jade gives my nails its "pop" needed.
But I digress, Khaki Brun is an earthy stone medium brown with a touch of mossy green that is about 3 touches deeper than Particuliere, which is currently my color of the year.
Khaki Brun is a bit more forgiving whether you are wearing a warm or cool tones, so my black and white ensembles aren't instantly put-off by the color.
Khaki Rose was a challenge for me because upon seeing the color, I thought of terracotta wall paper reminiscent of an old house that I grew up in.
Anyway, this FNO surprise by Chanel was great in all its glory, It reminded me of the Paris Vogue issue that was devoted to the military trend with Rose Cordero on the cover ( March 2010). However, I think the Chanel Soho collection was a better fit for Fashion's Night Out theme- both Strong and Steel , sadly I was not able to get ahold of .

Yesterday I checked out Style.com's Pop-up shop in Madison Square Park for their limited edition 10 year anniversary t-shirts. All shirts are made by Loomstate and are designed by Balmain, Lanvin Rodarte, Givenchy,Calvin Klein, Rick Owens, Proenza Schouler and Prada.
After seeing Style.com staffers sporting the tee's I picked up the Prada one. I'm actually surprised its Prada because it looks so graphic but its right up my alley.
These are available on style.com today for $45 a pop and are going fast!

At this point in the night I turned to my dear friend Anna and said- Betsey Johnson is the place to be. It was a full on party! complete with drinks, Control -era Janet Jackson tunes, a photo booth, Hair, Nail and Makeup stations and dancing anywhere you could move.

Soho de Chanel is the exclusive highlighter/blush compact that boasts a raised Soho embossed in the powder.
The color trio contains a light gold- champaign color, a light pink highlighter and a light plum shimmery blush.
Enjoy the swatches!
I will post Stunt Rouge Allure Laque soon. I'm waiting to take the pics in natural light. With the flash my lips look like I was wearing a creamy light white lavender lipstick- which is definitely not what this color looks like in everyday wear.

The interwebs are abuzz today after H&M gave a teaser of their new designer collabs. Many fashionable resources ( The Cut, Fashionologie, Bryanboy) are dropping Lanvin's name as the next H&M collaboration.
Lanvin for the price of a Ricky's wig, are you Siri?
I just posted my lemming for the Lanvin leopard dress that was spotted on Colette but jeez, this would be amazing! I would camp out in Mid-town for this.
Now if only we can get a Christian Lacroix for Target or H&M going...
