Hautemommas' Night Out

We had a great time at Hautemommas' Night Out at Laser Perfect!

We indulged in chair massages, makeup application, paraffin hand dips, wine and hors d'oeuvres. The fabulously knowledgable, friendly and fun staff at Laser Perfect educated us on lots of breakthrough treatments, procedures and products in aesthetics.

Many got botox and tried the new laser treatment to diminsh signs of sun damage...stay tuned for a review of this as we see results in a few days!

Thanks to all of the fun ladies who attended and to Laser Perfect Medspa for a great night!

P.S. Kiss by Peter Som and Lancôme

Get it while it's Haute! (and before it sells out!)

Third in Lancome's Pout-A-Porter collection which supports emerging designers, P.S. Kiss Lipstick created by Peter Som in collaboration with Gucci Westman (Lancome's artistic director)will be available October 1st at Nordstrom.

“My fall collection was all about rich textures and deep saturated colors – P.S. Kiss is the perfect bold stroke to go with the clothes, but it is still elegant and easy,” says Peter.

We love the perfect combo of a bright red and a dark burgundy shade...perfect for Fall!

Haute Cocktails

New from Stirrings...

"The sensual Caipirinha, Brazil’s national cocktail, is the most exciting Brazilian export since “The Girl From Ipanema” 40 years ago. Our Simple Caipirinha is a bitter muddle of Key limes and cane sugar – just add cachaça and serve. Reaching Rio’s warm white sands has never been so easy… "

"The humble pear, a Chinese symbol for immortality, has enjoyed a renaissance because of its understated yet bold flavor. Stirrings® Pear provides a balanced base for all potions pear. Smooth like the great French fruit Cognacs, with a hint of texture from the pressed Bartlett pear purée, the options are, well, never-ending."

Haute Louisville Stuff

Celeb Sighting!
As many of you know Larry Birkhead, father of Dannielynn (daughter of Anna Nicole Smith), celebrated her 1st birthday in Louisville on Saturday.

We saw Larry at 4th Street Live later that night. It was weird because he didn't have some big posse with him or 'protection'. We always think 'anyone that's anyone' will have bodyguards, guess not. He is much skinnier and looks much younger than I thought he would, but handsome.

Craig Stevenson, owner of True candles sold at Neiman Marcus and Louisville native, was out and about Saturday night. Be watching for an interview with him soon!....how haute is he! Click here for Springfield Sun article.

New Stores coming to Louisville!
Lucky Brand and L'Occitane opening in Oxmoor - 2008. IKEA of Louisville should be opening this fall.

Haute Umbrellas

Check out Pare*Umbrella! They are stylish, durable and very haute!!

Fashion Week Kicks Off

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City begins today. 60-plus designers will show off their spring 2008 collections in the tents at Bryant Park, with dozens more sending their styles down runways throughout the city.

Trend forecaster David Wolfe says, "It's a clean-up campaign," Thankfully, he predicts that new fashions will be "not as flashy and not as vulgar as we've seen in the recent past -- fewer clothes for Britney and Paris Hilton, more for grown-up women," he said.

Designer Carmen Marc Valvo agreed. "It's going to be very polished," he said, "cleaner, more put together and a little more refined."

Silhouettes will get leaner, according to Designer Tracy Reese. "Things will get closer to the body," she said.

We can't wait to see Michael Kors, Ports 1961, DVF, Malandrino, Carolina Herrera, Zac Posen and Mulberry's lines. Check back this week for updates and let us know whose lines you are looking most forward to!

Now and Later

Tired of your summer sundresses? Wear these now and later this Fall (with a few simple additions).

Wear this flattering cinched-waist grey dress alone now & over a full-sleeved blouse later.

This turquoise shift can be worn later in September with black tights.

Add a stylish trench or cardi and boots to this sleeveless shift for the cooler months.
