This post is a mish mash of things that I want to share, from fashion, um, to fashion and everything in-between.

Today, what exactly does it mean to be American? I really don't know anymore, and anytime I read the news or switch on the television, I'm appalled at the mess the U.S. is in. Its core values, the American dream, freedom of speech, embracing immigrants as their own, ( I could give you a huge list of fashion designers considered American that are immigrants!), it's optimism, all on a balancing wire, with polarized ends. The nation of We Can seems that they Can't. So here's the GAP, the purveyor of basic denim and tees, showing us how it's done.  

This cute shortie was directed by Edward Enninful, the newly appointed director of Vogue UK! 

What does it mean to be Swedish?!?

Shop at Ikea? Eat Ikea? It seems the design esthetics has passed onto the food area... Really cool for those that cannot cook...

Watch to the end, very precise!

 

This last week, fashion's  creative use of the classic blue bag in ways never thought of by the brand... Below are two images that I published on my instagram @isabelcostaofficial, the Balenciaga leather XL tote, retails for $2.145 and the Ikea plastic carry all for 99 cents, isn't fashion crazy! 

It's not the first time big name brands have played with the conventional and ordinary. Have a look at Anya Hindmarch's Carrefour, the supermarket chain, inspired collection and at Louis Vuitton and the common packing bag! 

Very chic take on an everyday shopping bag, also very English eccentric.

I've used these bags for moving house, but they were not LV.

Have a great day,
