Fashionistas Oh Mista

Armani
I found this gorgeous picture on Facebook. 



I believe this model on the runway is wearing Armani. 



The green dress is overflowing with beautiful ruffles, accented only by a black belt. 



As the model walks down the black and white runway, the whole outfit just seems to pop with soft texture and sheer eloquence.



I showed it to my daughter and she was hesitant about it, thinking that the green color made her look like a tree and surrounding foliage. 



I can see her point–maybe a nice sky blue or candy pink would be better…I think all three on stage would be amazing! 😉

Brilliant Knife Set Design

Deglon Meeting Knife SetI came across this brilliant knife set by French company, Deglon, called Meeting–I would assume it’s called that because of how the knives meet up and fit together into a single stainless steel block.


I love the the simplicity and eloquence, and these won the European Cutlery Design Award.


There are four knives in this set for paring, utility, chef, and fillet. 

Deglon also has a steak knife set–similar concept in that the knives fit together, but they stack rather than fit inside each other, so it is cute, but has less of a wow-factor. 


My other concern with these knifes is their handle which doesn’t have a cushioned or rubberized grib–so for lots of cooking and cutting, I am not sure how comfortable or slip-resistant these are to use.


Similarly, some of the knives may not be so quick and easy to pull them out and use, especially the ones that are tucked inside the others. 


Perhaps, these are an example of form versus function–where this contemporary knife set look very beautiful, but how practical are they for everyday use?


At $750, I am pretty sure these are better than anything I use regularly, but I am definitely no chef! 😉
