Hello Autumn, goodbye Valentino

Autumn. I am so glad you are here (almost). I have been waiting for 5 months to bring out my boots, tights, chunky sweaters and hats, and now the time is almost here! If only it wasn't 95 degrees out. Anyway, we've been a little quieter than usual here at bon bon, waiting for the heat to let up, but now we are starting to gear up for our favorite season! First and Foremost, out with the old! American Apparel is 40% off, and with a variety of styles from dresses to tanks to long sleeve shirts, it is definitely a good time to stock up. As for the new, we are starting off with a new pair of delicious shoes from Irregular Choice. They are tasty little shoes with a little luxury in the form of a pink jeweled buckle right on top. $106.00. We also have some new fall dresses in, A-lines in mixed patterns and colors. Just right for making that transition to the new more body conscious silhouette (goodbye Trapeze Dress). And of course there will be new bags, more shoes, and some great new jewelry--all in good time. I would like to now bid a fond farewell to Valentino who has just announced today that he is stepping down as head designer from his company that he founded in 1960. It has not been announced who will take his place, but it will be a hard one to fill. I hope that they continue as one of the few houses who still show haute couture. It is a dying art, and one that Valentino has done well over the years.

See you soon!
