H&M’s ‘Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ Collection: First Looks Appear!

I may be the only person in town who didn’t enjoy the books (truly, I thought they were just ‘ok’), but I certainly won’t be the only gal in town coveting these H&M film and book inspired items!

Great color palette (greys and blacks fo’ life!), interesting cuts and fabrics, and no goth-makeup required! Right up my winter alley 🙂

…and she’s back.



Retro Cell Phone Handset – WANT!

Nostalgia has a hold of me- forget want, I may need one of these!

 Jamie Lee makes being mobile on a stationary phone look almost natural!         I’m sold 🙂

And it comes in this lovely shade of green! Love.

You can pick up the ones shown in these pics here, but there are lots of brands to choose from. Cheers to old school cord-twirling conversations!


Tilda Swinton – fo’ life

’nuff said.




Nike MAG McFly ‘Back to the Future’ sneakers at last!

I love everything about these! Their authentic ‘futuristic’ look, plus the fact that the launch is well tied to the The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Not available to the public as widely as liked, only 1500 made so far- but they’re comin’!!


Only obvious things missing are…

…automatic laces, alright!


Venice Film Festival 2011

A little class goes a long way! These Huff Post images captured my imagination today. If only people bothered to dress for US events with such clear intention.

Keira Knightley, who I don’t often think of, makes a beautiful entrance at the openeing ceremony.

Kate Winslet. Stunning.

Madonna. Some part of me imagines there may have been a dress code.

My absolute favorite image from this series. Evan Rachel Wood.

Happy Saturday!


Pretty Things: Thurs.

This one is my current screensaver, I just love it!

All these are more pretty things here.


Desigual 8/30/11: be there or be – you know, SQUARE!

I’m always on the hunt for fun fabrics and comfortable shapes. Desigual flaunts both and now they’re throwing a HUGE party to celebrate –

Here are the deets:

Tuesday, August 30th (rain or shine!)
Desigual – Santa Monica
1457 Third Street Promenade @ Broadway Santa Monica, CA 90401

 Line starts at 7AM!

Desigual has announced an in-store promotion for the brave: Undie Party! The first 100 people arriving at Desigual’s new Third Street Promenade store in Santa Monica – wearing just their underwear – will walk out in a FREE two-piece Desigual outfit. Any 1 top, any 1 bottom – their choice.

Nothing is better than a FABU winter coat in the doldrum days of winter, I’m always eyeing their coats when I pass their SoHo shop, check out some highlights – yet another reason to feel a bit homesick, lol.

Just beautiful 🙂

And check this guy out, killer undies my friend…

I can’t believe I missed my chance in NYC, sigh…Dawn your best chonies and make it happen 🙂 Go get ’em guys!
