Vera Wang Lavender, Roslyn wedges....oooh la la. It was love at first sight. All it took was one click and I found myself prancing over to Vera on Mercer Street and just like that....Roslyn was mine. Last pair. The lovely saleswoman told me Intermix was sold out and had been sending all of their costumers over. Painful obsession aborted in it's tracks. Fait accompli.

This might just be the best shoe closet I've ever seen. When Carrie's fairy tale closet is not an option, this glamorous set up runs a close second. I'm loving the acrylic chair with fur cushions and mirrored fireplace. I once had a neighbor who carefully polaroided her entire shoe collection and affixed the pix to the boxes. I always admired her dilligence but found it to be a bit ambitious for my taste. I'd rather let my Manolos get a little dusty but this is so next level. Definitely worth the effort. Go big baby!

Rick Owens Opens Store in London
April 7th 09, 2:41 | James Oliver
Rick Owens has opened his first store in the UK, in London’s Mayfair district. After several unforeseen delays, no doubt the fair people of London will be itching to get their hands on Owens’ ominously beautiful pieces. As you would expect, the space is quintessentially Owens, with ‘an air of Romantic ruin…and a modern austerity’. A life sized sculpture of Owens’ head on a platter is the centrepiece of the store, in typical Owens wit and irony. Definitely check it out if you’re lucky enough to be in the neighborhood.

Wow. It's been nearly 3 months since my last post. I've been thinking about getting back here to my blogging perch for so long and yet nothing happened. I have no idea why it was so difficult for me to find my way back here - bending spoons with my mind seemed like an easier feat.

I heard a really interesting tidbit today on a morning show and so easy to remember...
Secrets for a successful healthy life (the segment on the show was about coping with change in one's life and how the first 30 days of life changes are the most critical) The author advised this easy way to remember that which we need most in life to thrive especially at the most trying times...
D rink (lots of water)
Simple, easy yet sooooo true

Design Within Reach is having their annual Knoll Classic sale May 2-11.
The sale includes designs by Mies van der Rohe, Platner, Saarinen, and Risom amongst others.
The incredible chair above is Harry Bertoia's Diamond Lounge chair. It remains a fascinating study in bent metal and a fixture of mid-century design.
If you're a mid century modern design junkie like I am, here's your chance to pick up some amazing pieces and get free shipping too. I think the free shipping only applies for orders placed by May 5.
Good luck - start shopping :)

AS DEFINED BY Merriam-Webster's dictionary
I have spent quite a bit of time on Robertson Blvd and surrounding environs this week. I'm looking forward to sharing all of my fashion epiphanies and discoveries with my friends.
I'm surprisingly inspired and enchanted by Spring fashion 2008. Designers - both old favorites and new names are churning out some exciting, fresh and new ideas. It's truly rather refreshing.
It's about time. Baby doll silhouettes were getting so old.
Footwear and deliciously flat and comfy or daringly and devastatingly sky high. Yummy!
Fabrics are gossamer with gorgeous hues and prints. I have observed hemlines both daringly "up to there" as well as sophisticated and easy ankle grazing styles.
" What about accessories" you ask... well, I've seen huge bright statement making pieces as well as breath taking whimsical feminine designs. I've even seen the two trends comely betwixt on a number of beautiful mannequins strutting up and down the boulevard.

5 Ways to Combat Rudeness
- Don’t take it personally. Perhaps the offender is having a bad day.
- Size up your annoyances. Is it worth it to make a fuss over something small, or is it a waste of your emotional time?
- Set a good example. Rudeness begets rudeness. If you speak sharply to the bank teller, don’t be surprised if you get the same treatment in return.
- Count to ten. When someone’s behavior makes you angry, take a few deep breaths and ask yourself, “Is it really worth blowing my stack over this?”
- Laugh it off. If you can’t come up with a friendly joke, just chuckle and change the subject.

A woman's bust size changes 6-7 times over her lifetime.
It could be helpful to update your "bra wardrobe" every season while you are working on hunting down your new season's fashion obsessions... Reassess fit and function.
I find salespeople in most lingerie stores to be more than happy to "lend a hand" in helping you fit a new bra.
Rock out that new Spring wardrobe with your best natural accessories.
