Oh Bottega Veneta, what happened to you? You’ve forever dazzled me with your handbags and shoes, but my my my, leather-goods be damned if you’re not now dangling yummy frocks under my nose. Thomas Maier if i sent Christmas Cards you’d be added to my list this year. You’ve created a Fall collection with the prettiness and promise of renewal that only comes with Spring Lines. 00330m00220m00320m
Now if only i could work these beguiling accoutrements into teaching a mat class. I might be able to pull off the cropped, lilac, shearling jacket with the GIGANTIC bracelet sleeves on a spin bike. But the willowy yards of yummy milky silk; they’d for sure catch on a reformer spring.

It’s times like these where i reconsider a deal with the devil. Maybe a night at The Island Hotel fundraising, for god knows what terrible Orange Country conservative cause, wouldn’t be so bad as long as I was able to wear my new Bottega Veneta dress??? hmmmmmmm…………..
