{March 19, 2008}   Prada Outlet store

Prada Factory Outlet Tuscany

Fashion Designer Prada was founded in 1913 in Milan, Italy as a manufacturer of leather bags. What is known today as Prada is mostly the work of the founder’s grand-daughter Miuccia
Thus, Prada clothes avoid very loud clouring and easily appealing appearances. They are described as cool, comfortable, pure, graceful, and minimalist. Miuccia Prada, who is entirely in charge of the companies creative decisions, says she bases her decisions mostly on intuition. She is reported to be overly fussy about each detail of her design. It can happen that each product has to be changed over and over in order to come closest to Miucci Prada’s initial idea. Her husband Patrizio Bertelli is the business-man behind Miuccia Prada. He is responsible for the commercial side of the products and the retail strategy.

{March 11, 2008}   Stylish shoe storage

Now this is Kewl! Surfing through the fashion modeling blogs I ran across the Rakku shoe storage wheel. A must have for anyone who owns a dozen pairs of high heeled pumps. If I had this rack and the shoes to go with it, this would be the center piece on my coffee table and not tucked away in the closet.

This is called the Rakku shoe storage wheel and sells for a bit over 100 bucks at

hip shoe rack
