Hmmm, Earlace?

Rihanna rocked one recently. And you know it is only a matter of time until H&M starts to carry them. But would you wear an earlace? I admittedly am not the most graceful of people and that just looks like an accident waiting to happen.

Friday Thoughts

  • Are no eyebrows the new eyebrow? NY Times says so.
  • If you live in NYC, go to The Met and check out Model As Muse.

Project Runway News

Looks like Logan Neitzel, one of the designers who fed my "Tom Ford for Prez" t-short obsession, will be on the next season of Project Runway. I interviewed Logan about a year ago and he was super nice and friendly and I am definitely rooting for him. Tim Gunn, you better be nice!

How to get shot by Scott

I love The Sartorialist. I love laughing. And I love this... a step-by-step to getting shot by The Sartorialist. So brilliant.

On Sunday we took a little detour on our way to the pool to check out Treasury, the new vintage store on 14th and T. I ended up walking out with a raw silk 60's inspired dress that I now want to marry and wear for ever and ever. Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration. But I do love it. Either way, you can shop Treasury here.

People Crush #??

I haven't done "People Crush" in awhile. Like since the '80s. I should probably change that. Let's start with Garance Dore who is totally relaxed and sincere and can draw and take pictures like you wish that you could. Did I mention she that she's French and knows style like no one's business? So when you read her blog make sure to do it with a saucy French accent. She would appreciate it.

We <3 Aggy

The NY Times did a fun bit on supermodel Agyness Deyn. She seems like someone who would be fun to hang out with... you know, while at the same time intimidating the hell out of you. I just want her hair.

Bon Voyage

Tomorrow I am off to Naples with friends for a little holiday getaway. I haven't been there since my momushka got married almost 15 years ago. What I remember is a fantastic boardwalk that goes through the marsh, pina coladas on the beach, waking up early to collect seashells and something about an alligator with a missing leg.

This trip shouldn't be much different. I'm dreading packing. But it should be simple... bikini, sundresses, sunblock, beach towel. But do I or don't I take my unread issues of W Magazine. It's the only magazine I keep for reference and I don't want to lose them (hey, my grandkids will thank me). If that is my biggest worry, than life is pretty damn good.
