Chanel has a way of making a woman look stunning. Whether it's the classic tweed jacket or the perfect shade of nail polish, every woman needs a bit of Chanel. For spring 2012, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, Peter Philips, created yet another charming collection. Inspired by the changing skies that herald the arrival of spring, the Chanel Spring 2012 Harmonie de Printemps Collection is full of yummy colors which are now available at department store makeup counters. On a side note, if you're a lover of Chanel makeup, you might enjoy this video.

*LOOK BOOK* Marni Accessories Spring/Summer 2012

First of all, HOORAY~! Marni x H&M!! The announcement of the new collaboration between Marni and H&M broke earlier this week. For some odd reason, I never imagined Marni doing any sort of collab with a fast fashion retailer. But since they are in fact doing one, I'm very excited. From what I can see from the recently released video, the collection looks fantastic!

Now, let's talk about this image board I created of Marni's Spring/Summer 2012 accessories. I've always been an admirer of Consuelo Castiglioni's artsy designs for the Italian house and this collection has the perfect amount of playfulness & distinctive style that the brand is well known for. My fingers are crossed that there a semblance of some of these fabulous pieces will appear in the H&M collaboration.

Mizhattan Fab Choice: I've stayed away from chunky jewelry for sometime now, but this statement necklace is simply marvelous! I would pair it with a draped white blouse & lemon yellow knee length pencil skirt. Sounds yummy, no?

Alluring Tom Ford

Chanel have always been my first choice when it comes to makeup colors, but I think I'll switch over to Tom Ford this winter. Bergdorf Goodman recently launched the full beauty collection of Tom Ford and I couldn't be more drawn to these gorgeous shades of allurement. Check out the full color collection here and find more nail color inspirations here.

Mizhattan Fab Choice: I'm totally loving this Bitter Bitch shade. It's a bit pricey ($30), but it was love at first sight!

*LOOK BOOK* Balenciaga Fall/Winter 2011

One of the biggest reasons to look forward to the new season is the innovative fall/winter pieces from the French house of Balenciaga. I love the freshness & practicality of each piece; those razor–sharp stilettos & the statement necklace are highly desirable.

*DESIGNER COLLAB* Missoni for Target

Whenever big designer collabs come out, the clothes are main focus. But this time, it's different. The Missoni for Target lookbook is now available for preview, and while I have zero interest in the clothes, my heart is set on the accessories & houseware. The classic Missoni zig zag patterned bicycle is so adorable, it almost makes me want to start riding bikes in the city. The collection will include 400 pieces and will be priced between $7.99 and $199.99. This collab is scheduled to hit stores on September 13th. See more images of this collection here. In case you're interested in looks I wanted to see in this collab, revisit my previous post here.

Mizhattan Fab Choice: Valentino may not be your typical brand for everyday basics, but this Rock Stud double handle bag can do just that. It comes with an inner zip pocket and a double inner smartphone holder. Also, I'm loving the edgy design!

It's no surprise that Diane von Furstenberg--queen of vibrant patterns--brings excitement to the fashion world. Though the beach season is months away, it's always nice to plan ahead. And with so many items from DVF's Spring/Summer collection to love, planning couldn't be any easier.

Dear Diary

Call me old-fashioned, but I'm tired of organizing my itinerary digitally. There is something wonderful about having an agenda in your purse that you can actually feel with your fingers. I was shopping for my new agenda for the new year and came across these fantastic options. Although the YSL agenda (bottom left) is hard to resist, I do prefer strong hues like red, fuchsia, and raisin. These diaries may be above your budget, but considering they can last years, they are worth the investment.

Left to right, top to bottom: Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis, $350. Hermes PM agenda, $310. Yves Saint Laurent Chyc small agenda, $595.

Mizhattan Fab Choice: Smythson of Bond Street Soho Diary, $280.
