A more splendid title for a post could not be found. Love zippers. That Alexander Wang Donna Zipper Hobo has been on my lust list for the last few weeks. Now, however, I'm also craving that J.J. Winters Suede Zipper Bag. Love!

I'm not too big on the zipper trend, but I have to say I like those heels with the ruffly zipper look!

Gabbi said...

Congratulations to the winners!

I love the DooRi zipper flower detail, soft flowers with a pretty modern edge. And also the J.J. Winters bag. I'm a fan of big soft brown leather bags...

Lovely weekend to you dearest CC.xxoxo

Magnificent as always! I was wondering if I could pick your brain regarding the fashion world etc... Could you please email me? I apologize, but I couldn't find an alternative contact on the blog.

So glad exposed zippers are "in"! I have a dress I bought at Target (no really, it's fabulous!) a while ago and haven't had a chance to wear (nowhere cool enough, apparently) with a great exposed zipper in the back. &&Thanks for your com(pli)ment :)

Take care!

Hemaly said...

Zippers are just pure heaven & no longer for punks!

loft in SoHo said...

I love the Isabel Marant look!

Thanks for your comment, I love you blog dear Carrie,


oniomania said...

H @ Narnia's Closet said...

Zara said...

Aww I'm away from blogging for one day and miss a great contest! :) Oh well, love this post. Zips always add an exciting element to a garment xoxo

STEFANIE said...

I love exposed zippers on dresses :) And the zipper jewelry looks awesome!

Gracie said...

I adore the zippered ruffle skirt, it's so pretty!!

Margaret Meyer said...

There is some weird synchronicity thing going here. Yesterday I bought a top that has a zipper across the shoulders. Then I saw almost exact same said top on Jenny McCarthy on a talk show last night. And, now, this post. (Which is quite good, btw!)

Frock Around the Clock said...

What is it about zips that are so fascinating? They are just brilliant. I wanted to make like a big fascinator out of a zip all curled up like a flower - I'll get round to it one day :) x

Hero Hunter said...

In my disconnection from blogging and fashion (2 months!! can u believe it!?!?) I've remade my whole wardrobe by cutting, zipping and studding everything!! I loved it doing it and I think it's time to love wearing it!!:)

Brigadeiro said...

Love the Doo.Ri zip rosette dress! SO gorgeous! :)

The Little Fashion Treasury said...

Love the Alexander Wang hobo.
Balenciaga made a similar hobo bag
a few seasons ago (believe it was 2002).


A Stylized Hysteria said...

The amount of images you get for each post is mind-boggling! But seriously, that picture of Jourdan in the black lipstick totally distracted me from all the awesome zippers. Want to exchange links?

Alabama said...
