It feels against season, but I'm really digging winter white nails right now. Get your holiday mani-pedi on.

Gold Rush

I am SO obsessed with gold accessories these days. Fad or fashion?

-MMS studded bottom satchel (own it - love it - TJ Maxx)
-Champagne transformer iphone case (word of warning: it's aluminum and kills your signal, but chis as hell)
-Starbucks electroplate gold mug (30% off right NOW)
-Kenneth Cole gold multi-chain toggle bracelet
-gold paper clips, Acco
-spray painted bulletin board

Well Seated

Damn. Those are leather breeches.

Best Desk

My company's office remodeling oversight (they didn't order me a desk!) may have been my extreme good fortune, as I am now on the hunt for one on my own. And let's face it, standard office furniture is not what a good design studio needs! So I'm thinking of going this route. Ikea to the rescue:

As it turns out, taking this style of Ikea table (top and legs sold separately) and gilding it is quite the internet trend. Samples abound and differ between spray painting (above) and gold leafing (below) but it boils down to a terribly chic lacquered white table and airy golden legs for roughly $50. Ideal!

These Days...

Britney Spears' Work Bitch

A) This is such a great shot (dress is by Georges Chakra)

B) This looks straight outta Brit's heyday. Girl has been through it and came out the other side spectacular as ever!

Khloe and Lamar Indeed Breakable

Ugh, another one?! What a terrible week for all this. I was really rooting for these two but when your husband turns into a lying, cheating coke whore, there's just not much you can do. So sad for everyone. (But if I was ever going to file for divorce, I'd shoot for Friday the 13th as well. Seems fitting.)
Here, in better times:

Taye Diggs Back on the Market

Noooo! If these two Broadway babies can't make it, what hope is there for the rest of us? The only silver lining is that, ladies, that is a beautiful man and he is available! But still sad.

Do Not Regret Growing Older

I fully grasp the absurdity of posting this a stone's throw from a bunch of underwear models (see previous post). However, it is so so true and we must remember that. The fact is, none of us is getting out of this alive and every day we are afforded is an absolute blessing.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2013

A review: I always really love the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. It's so over the top and the production values are insane and the designs are usually really creative. But the last few years it's been lacking a bit and this year was more of the same. Inventiveness, I suppose, is hard when you're only working with a modicum of fabric. The Pink line felt like a county fair had set down right in the Ukraine. The Parisian Nights looked like everything we've ever seen from a VS commercial. Ship wrecked started out strong but took a weird turn with the color palette. But Snow Angels and the British Invasion were great fun and A Great Big World on piano was just beautiful. The set design was excellent. I really loved the tunnel opening upstage and the gorg glittery runway was so expansive a small plane could have touched down. My biggest gripe remains: you can't even buy half the shit you fall in love with!
So here are my faves, in no particular order:
Doutzen Kroes

Lindsay Ellingson

Behati Prinsloo
Lily Donaldson
Kasia Struss
Behati Prinsloo
Jourdan Dunn
Cara Delevingne
Doutzen Kroes
And, as always, Adrianna Lima as the baddest bitch!
And Taylor Swift, being the coolest girl at the party. Besties with Lily and bum slaps with Cara Delevingne (they share an ex-bf in Harry Styles).

Black Couches

Now hear me out. It's a little unorthodox, but I think you'll like it. They don't have to be cold and uninviting. I present as evidence the following:

Thanksgiving 2013

Happy Thanksgiving to you all and safe travels! Fuel up on your Starbucks early and let those baristas get outta there. And if you're still in need of a little something for your holiday meal, may I humbly suggest this:
Sweet Potato with Torched Marshmallows ice cream by Jeni's.The chicest ice cream in town.

Macaron Time

This counts as holiday baking, right? The mint chocolate is heaven!

Knotty Fun

Knot up those maxi dresses! Great way to add a fun detail and a sew-free way to hem up one that's too long!

Scarf Bow

This has the potential to be really cute or make you look like a huge jackass. I can easily see it going either way...

Press Pause

Just give me one more week to get the most fabulous dance concert ever up and running and I will return. I promise! Sadly real life designs trump internet designs. In the meantime, here's a fabulous dance-inspired tutu skirt. Please consider incorporating them into your holiday repertoire.
