6126 by Lindsay Lohan Spring/Summer 2011 Handbag Preview

Lindsay Lohan's 6126 Spring/Summer 2011 handbag line debuted at the chic Ace Hotel and company President, Richard Luna, and Creative Director, Paz Wolf, walked me through the charismatic collection. With details chosen by fashionable Ms. Lohan herself, the collection is bound to be a hit. Synthetic, lightweight leathers, including eye-catching snake skins in metallic washes, were eco friendly, and cross body messengers as well as lace, studs, and tassel treatments were up on the trends. With simple branding identifications left to the hardware, the bags were classy and totally appealing to women of all ages.

Cherished Feet


In spirit of today's Thanksgiving holiday, as well as the upcoming holiday season, today is dedicated to Cherished Feet. Founded and headed by the well known New York socialite and long-time missionary, Karen Koeningsberg, this non-profit organization focuses on providing impovrished children with their first steps to a brighter future. Parasites can enter the body through bare feet and many children in devloping countries spend their days walking barefoot in unsanitary soils that have become the breeding grounds for bacteria and a variety of lethal organisms. Cherished Feet has made a commitment to make a difference by providing these children, whom range from toddles to those of 18 years in age, with quality shoes. Although this organization is newly established and only a few month old, with friends like fashion designer Richie Rich, and a solid team behind her, Ms. Koeningsberg was able to collect 3,000 shoes in just one weekend. Always one to start her own team, rather than to join one - a trait she inherited from her mother, with whom she has traveled on approximately 30 missions - Koeningsberg will travel to Haiti next month to hand deliver every pair of shoes to children in need. Her determination, motivation and positive energy and attitude are certainly contageous as she embarks on her journey to not only educate and create awareness, but to "live up" to her charity and carry out her missionary duties. Cherished Feet, along with all of those who pitched in and were one of the thousands that donated footwear, have definitely given the world something to be very thankful for.
