ART: Monet - Water Lelies

Beautiful art from Monet, "Water Lilies", seen at Welovepaintings.com – hand painted oil paintings.
I really love this work of the painter Monet, available at "We Love Paintings". This company offers high quality hand-painted oil painting reproductions of masterpieces. Their artists are extremely experienced in repainting masterpieces. For the last three years, they have had chances to serve customers in Europe, NorthAmerica, Middle East, South Africa, and Russia. Each painting is genuinely hand painted by their talented artists under the articulate supervision of their quality control team.

Michael Kors Resort 2013: Opulent Minimalism

The theme of Michael Kors' latest resort collection was “opulent minimalism”. We’re told he was inspired by a recent trip to Turkey. Kors did rich fabrics with ornate details in jewel tones and golds in simple, resort season-appropriate silhouettes. There were some (very cute) swimwear and sandal options for the beach-bound. Kors also provided some great transitional pieces like coats, pants and knits – as well as pieces that would work anywhere. Cool, work-appropriate shorts, tailored jackets and sleek shifts had a fun ’60s vibe with a modern twist. There were also, of course, a few floor-length evening options. All topped off with luxurious accessories like turquoise python belts, jeweled clutches and chic chain-strapped handbags. For the complete collection please have a look at the enclosed link below.

Best Shoes From the Spring 2012 Shows

Shoe trends for Spring come in two varieties, crazy and over-the-top or minimal and functional. The most obvious extremes are Versace's see-through mega heels (6 inches or more!) versus Comme des Garçons' white, almost sterile boots. In the interim are Dries van Noten's simple strappy sandals, Chanel's mod booties, Prada's race car heels, Miu Miu's kitschy knee-highs, and Proenza Schouler's synthetic wedges. For the complete review please have a look at the enclosed link from Fashionista.
