Chic Pick: Alexander Mc Queen Clutches

Every now and then we try to find high end pieces for the infamous “Chic Pick” posts ,whether clothing or accesssories to inspire us for the next shopping event. Ofcourse, no average girl on a budget would be able to afford a $2,000 or + Alexander Mc Queen clutch but it wouldn’t hurt to use this as inspiration for a trip to Top Shop, Aldo or even Forever 21. As much as we love to splurge here and there we do love a durable bargain product especially in the midst of the holiday season with the countless cocktail parties and soriees. A unique designed clutch would be the ultimate must-have staple for the Christmas list. A new year is around the corner trust us when we say it will come in handy.

Chic Pick: Alexander Wang Sachel Bag

After the studded duffle bag Alexander Wang went down in our Notebook as “One of the best handbag designers”… Take notes, because if this Sachel vintage bag doesnt catch your eye then you probably need to retake Chic 101. The excess strapping and it’s the perfect size for the girl on the go!
Is it splurge worthy? or do you think there are some great steals out there?

Chic Pick: The Blonds Spring 2011

Last on the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week roaster but certainly not least. I had the privilege of working with The Blonds team for their Spring 2011 show and let me just say mission well executed. A fun and exciting show is always my NYFW icing on the cake! So with the tornado at its peak and pouring rain in the NYC streets I made my way to Milk Studios in the Meat Packing District (directly across the DVF store) to work The Blonds. This post may be somewhat biased but I’m pretty sure that you would agree with me when I say that these corsets are too die for! Here is The Chic Report’s long overdue “Chic Pick” post. Jewels, sequins, pearls are just a few gommettes used to create a dazzling embellished pieces as seen in the photos.

Selita ripped that runway! (Oh and did I mention we rode the elevator together? Such a sweetheart)
This is my look and the model that I worked with. p.s… I really didn’t think her breasts would show! She’s wearing a black sheer turtle neck underneath. And ofcourse black patent leather Louboutins. Just imagine the storm of orgasmic sighs backstage…

What an exciting show!

Chic Pick: Steve Madden Glitter Pumps

Pump up the volume with these golden glitter pumps from Steve Madden to your next summer soiree. Whenever the fashionista-on-a-budget feels like channeling her inner Carrie Bradshaw a trip to Steve Madden seals the deal. Ofcourse the signature YSL is legendary-chic but in this case its definitely out of the equation. Retails at $139 online and at Steve Madden/Nodstram/Macy’s stores.

Chic Pick: Whitney Eve Mini Dress For Outdoor Summer Wedding.

Its wedding season and I know some of my dearest readers are looking for the cute “it dress” to attend that outdoor wedding festivities. Upcoming designer and my favorite City girl Whitney Port is definitely leaving her mark on this industry. I love this dress because its simple yet bold and the flattering black and gold fabric makes it even more fashionable and daring. This is a selection from Whitney Eve’s Spring 2010 collection. Although its sold out on the site, you can use this as inspiration to find your next chic piece.

Chic Pick: Benefit Gloss

Before I owned almost every swatch of MAC cosmetic lipstick I was a lipgloss nerd. The glistening of my makeup kit was out of control and I could only trust a few brand to give me the luxe shimmering hue that I was looking for. Luckily I’ve been a fan of BENEFIT’s packaging so whenever I get to Bloomingdale’s this counter would be on my “visit” list. Ladies, there are days when we have no time in the name of beauty and a five minute face is all we can spare. The Chic Report picks Benefit gloss for anyone whose looking to attain a lavendering look but less matte. Retails at Macy’s/ Bloomingdale/ Sephora for $18.00. I’ve added a photo to show you how it looks. Hope you like it…

Chic Pick: Gasoline Glamour Studded Pump

I fall in love with everything glam and a touch of couture. Shoes are my witness especially unique ones which will dazzle up the simplest staple. America’s Next Top Model winner Eva was also part of the BET Awards festivites this past weekend. Gorgeous hair and makeup as well as a simple draped dress but her shoes were what gave her look the ultimate finishing edge. Eva was spotting these spiky grey and sliver pumps which The Chic Report approves. This Gasoline Glamour pump is sold at $3000,00 at
                  These are cute as well… visit Gasoline Glamour and tell me what you think, is it worth the slpurge?
