Jewelry designers Melaine Kamsler and Tamila Purvis, the designers of ManiaMania jewelry really put a unique perspective on jewelry design. Their inspiration comes from the idea that their pieces were discovered on an archeological dig. Check out their site ManiaMania.com

One of my favorite trends for summer is the maxi dress. I love the long flowing dresses which are so cute paired with strappy sandals and a floppy hat. Some of my favorites include T-Bags' tie dye dress, Free People's ruffled dress, and Diane Von Furstenberg's abstract print dress. I love the hippie style dresses, I think they are so fun for summer. Another one of my favorites is the dye washed Alternative Apparel dress. Alternative Apparel's fabrics are so soft and comfortable, perfect for a running around in the summer.

Alexander Mcqueen's Spring Summer collection stood out with his amazingly unique and crazy designed shoes. The shoes all have a futuristic feel with bone structured designs and metal parts, and all the shoes are nearly ten inches tall. Each shoe seems to come out of a sci-fi or fairytale. These shoes really stood for themselves on the runway, absolutely amazing!

Yesterday, in San Francisco, my family visited the Legion of Honor Museum to view the Cartier and America exhibit. The exhibit contains the diamond pieces of the 1920s and 1930s and more unique creations with precious and semi-precious stone carvings. Watches, clocks, tiaras, necklaces, bracelets, and some of the most amazing jewelry filled the exhibit. Some of my favorite pieces had stone carvings of coral and sapphire. The emerald pieces were also exquisite. Cartier's designs are all so outstanding and so detailed. The bezels on his rings have intricate heart details, diamonds, and rubies. There was a snake necklace with over 2,000 diamonds and enamel that moved and flowed to mimic a snake's slither. Every piece created went through so much planning and thought. It was such a beautiful exhibit.

The red carpet was filled with gowns last night, but only a few dresses caught my eye. Many dresses were on the boring side, but Chanel, as always, stood out. I adore Diane Kruger's and Sarah Jessica Parker's gowns. The halter, exquisite train, and flower detail on Diane's dress is simply beautiful and flattering. Sarah's dress is so unique; the neckline is outstanding and the flower detail on the back is so unexpected. Chanel's gowns are always so classic and stunning!

Valentino's collection for spring was incredible. The clothes all have an airy, lightweight feel to them. Intricate lace and detail make each piece stand out. I adore the shoes with the black wiring on the heel. The black pleated jumpsuit with the lace on the top has great movement and flow to it. The long dress is exquisite. I love the sheerness with the detailed applique and mesh-like design along the neckline. Each piece has its own movement down the runway and all the garments flow together with one another. This is definitely one of my favorite collections from Paris Fashion Week!

Anna Sui's Fall 2010 line was to die for! I love all the warm mixed prints, layering, and knit garments. She mixed lighter skirts with heavier sweaters, which I think works out amazingly! All the reds, plums, and browns are perfect for fall! The unique tight trend continues, as Anna Sui presented unique patterns and lacy tights.
Another one of my favorite lines was Zac Posen. I am obsessed with his red velvet dress. The fit and bodice are just amazing, and I love how he accented the beautiful color with sheer red tights. I also really liked the little black ballerinaesque dress. The bodice, once again is great! His color palette worked so well. More Fashion Week updates will continue this week! I can't wait to see the rest!

J. Crew's early spring catalogue is quite fabulous! It has a sort of nautical feel with neutral colors and trendy accessories. I love the suede metallic boat shoe and the coral studded bag. The floral rain coat is a definite must have when spring rolls around. J. Crew, as usual, came out with a great spring jewelry line. The pearl and stone earrings are one of my favorites! I'm looking forward to making a shopping trip to J. Crew soon!
