I <3 Miuccia!

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you all had an amazing holiday, I'm on winter break and thus have been lazy with blogging, but here's my first post of 2010!

Miuccia Prada has been one of my absolute favorite designers since I started appreciating fashion and I was ecstatic to hear that there would be a 708 page book documenting her first baby, Prada, over the past 30 years. I pre-ordered it expecting it to arrive in February but it came to me a few weeks ago and let me tell you...this thing is SEXY. It includes everything from the history, all the ad campaigns for men and women, tiny images of every runway look produced, concepts behind the retail stores, almost everything you could ever imagine. It's available at Prada stores, online, but the best deal is probably through Amazon. Here's a glimpse.

One of my favorite ads ever. Amber Valetta shot by Glen Luchford in '97.

My shoe collection comprises mostly of either Prada or Miu Miu, they're just so beautiful with the perfect amount of quirk. I purchased both of these shoes at Barneys during the sale recently. I'd been eyeing the first pair for a long time and then finally went to buy them only to happily find that they'd been marked down. They're like jewelery on my feet!
