Trend Alert: In Debt But Deluxe

Does a price point determine a product’s label as “luxury” item? Or is it determined by who is wearing it and where they’re wearing it? (They picked it up in a swag suite while you are paying retail.) Whatever the case, women are spending more than just their disposable income to own I’ll-pay-it-off-when-I’m-80 luxe products. Spending + celebrity imitation = status.


Who’s Who?

* Christian Louboutin is still on every stylist’s short list for shoes. Check out NeimanMarcus.com for new arrivals for fall from other heavy hitters like Chloe, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, and Manolo Blahnik. I’m ok with debt when it results in a pair of Chloe Patent Platform Slingbacks.




* Elie Tahari is tops for luxuriant looking and slimming styled clothing. Missoni with the wild patterns and wearable cuts (and hefty price tags) is definitely deluxe. John Paul Gaultier still dresses Madonna (except for the bizarre H&M contract) and for tactile luxe: TSE at NeimanMarcus.com. SheFinds’ subscribers can sign-up to have sample sale updates sent to their inbox- the best way to get luxe for less.


* Is this IT? I don’t know. Handbags are as diverse as the girls who carry them. Spend the paycheck on Dior, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, and Tod’s Handbags all found at eLuxury.com. Botkier and Kooba is slung around skinny starlet’s arms so often that it has luxe status.
