Chic will be the first to admit that sometimes we just want to unwind by gazing at a lot of pretty dresses. No shame in that! Luckily for us, bridal company Priscilla of Boston is teaming up with Thread Social to launch a collection of frothy frocks that will debut in late June at select Priscilla of Boston locations in Philadelphia, PA, Scottsdale, AZ and San Jose, CA. Whether you’ve got your eye on something short and sweet or floor-grazing and romantic, the collection of nine silhouettes has you covered. Plus, the prices range from an ultra-reasonable $250-$450. Who can argue with that? Pas nous!

Dress Like Isabeli

Who knew Isabeli Fontana was a designer as well as a supermodel? Pas nous, until we just stumbled upon her runway show at Sao Paulo Fashion Week---well, sort of. The whole collection consisted of five looks, three of them lingerie. The others: an oversized olive tee over liquid leggings, and a tiny black strapless minidress, worn on Fontana herself. Post show, the Brazilian beauty gave a mini press conference...but desolee, darlings, it was in Portuguese. We did catch something about ´`high-low,`` though. Supermodel style on a budget? Yes, please!

Carnivale Sao Paulo?

Chic thought Rio was the place for Carnivale, but after spending the day at Bienal, the site of Sao Paulo Fashion Week, we might be mistaken. SPFW organizers clearly want to keep their audiences entertained (even between shows)---how else could you explain the ferris wheel and super slide/ball pit in the building? Now we’re starting to get ideas...Hey Lincoln Center, how about a bounce house?

All Decked Out

If you still have dreams of owning that $450,000 Pepto-pink Damien Hirst piano that Lady Gaga played during the MOCA bash last November, then consider these deck chairs. At under $500 a pop, they're a (relative) steal. Best enjoyed with a bit of Moet and perhaps the new Steig Larsson book? THE DETAILS: Available at New York and London Other Criteria Editions stores, $425 each

Now we know what’s missing from our lives: an iguana-embossed Italian leather trunk bar. How could we have possibly have gone this many years without one? This beauty created by Serge de Troyer will cost you $8,500, but think of how gorgeous it will look tucked away in your apartment? The bar is fully functional with scads of space for bottles of champers and your poison of choice. Drinks on us. THE DETAILS: Vivre, $8,500
