Ocsar de la Renta - en memorium

In honour of the late great designer, some of our favorite looks. The man did a ballgown like no one's business:





RIP Oscar de la Renta

Ugh - The fashion world has lost an absolute giant. The Dominican designer was 82 and had battled cancer since 2006.

Love the poodles, love the clothes, love it all. She almost looks like a real girl with minimal makeup!

Starbucks Dark Barrel Latte

Living & working in a test market has it perks. The latest: Starbucks Dark Barrel Latte. It's a latte with mocha stout beer flavor syrup, espresso, steamed milk, whipped cream and caramel sauce. I do mine sans whip, cuz I'm not into gulping that much fat. But I've found myself a repeat purchaser. Sometimes you feel like you need a drink at 10 A.M. and this helps. But really, it tastes just like beer! And coffee! It's also a nice flavor departure when you need a break from your usual. The dark caramel sauce is a really nice sweet addition. It's not nearly as bitter as I feared. Thumbs up!
