Unfortunately this will be my last post on this blog.  But wipe away those tears, I now have a new blog that is bigger and better than ever!  The Little Black Suitcase features style, beauty, culture, travel and more.  Check it out here.  And thanks to my loyal followers!  I'll see you on the other side!

Thanks to the good folks at Sister PR and Girl Geek Dinners, Regent Street Tweet will go down in history as one of the greatest shopping events in London.  With over 20 stores, restaurants and bars on  Regent Street and its surrounding areas participating, there was literally something for everyone.  Bloggers and shopping enthusiasts started the day at the Apple Store where there were presentations on the relationship between fashion, technology and social media.  Guests then trekked around the busy shopping haven getting pampered with pedicures at Ugg Australia, sipping libations at Dirty Martini, and participating in a jewelry treasure hunt at the Swarovski Crystallized boutique.

To commemorate her grandmother-in-law's 60 years on the throne, Kate Middleton (pictured with hubby Prince William) stepped out in this pleated Alexander McQueen creation with matching hat and nude pumps.  Even though the day turned out to be bleary and gray, the Duchess of Cambridge's scarlet wardrobe is anything but, proving that style and royalty can go hand-in-hand.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to the presentation last week for the fall collection of Italian designer Danilo Gabrielle at the posh No5 Cavendish Square in London.  But I was able to get my hands on some images from their lookbook.  Inspired by legendary screen sirens Greta Garbo and Lauren Bacall, the line features old Hollywood glamour with a modern twist.  See for yourself!

Hermès Birkin Bag

A recent visit to the Hermès Leather Forever exhibit at London's Burlington Gardens turned out to be a rewarding experience as I got an up close and personal look at the brand behind the iconic Kelly and Birkin bags that have graced the very stylish arms of celebs from Victoria Beckham (rumored to own 100 bags worth £1.5 million) to Kim Kardashian to Lady Gaga.  Fans of Hermès whose bank accounts don't include that many zeros were treated to a rare glimpse inside the coveted label with a series of rooms dedicated to the luxury brand.

To commemorate the launch of their website, the good folks at nelly.com threw a soiree at Aqua bar.  Based in Sweden, the e-commerce site has now come to Britain and guests celebrated with pole dancers, pictures (from a customized photo booth where you could select your own background) and a special rendition of Beyonce's "Single Ladies."  All of this took place from the rooftop lounge with an amazing view of Regent St. in Central London.  A preview of various designers including Little Mistress, Cuba Shoes, and Voi Jeans were on display for those who weren't too busy imbibing on Nelly cocktails to notice.
