ooh nice post! I had a great day! walked to a new area in my town with some girlfriends. We had the best coffee and croissants at a little Italian restaurant! how's your weekend?

Michael St. James said...

OMG Couture Carrie! I LOVE that "Savage Furs" spread from the October 2008 Issue of American Vogue shot by Steven Meisel! I mean, the models are scaling a cliff in 7" Louis Vuitton wedges, while toting around Fendi clutches and wearing fur coats! What's not to love? Do you by any chance have any other pictures from the shoot? I'd love to have them!
