Does anyone else love this ad as much as I do?

The most recent Missoni ads reveal family photos of the Missoni women and other members of their family. While they are all truly fashionable they are also extremely engaging and beautifully comfortable in their own skin. The allure isn't in how glamorous they are but in how real they seem to be and nothing could be more fashionable than that.

I know the puppies are cute but I barely noticed them. It's the rug they're laying on that steals the show. I just purchased this rug for a client of mine in New York for her bathroom. What could be more fun than a pink leopard rug in a bathroom?! But bathrooms are not the only rooms in need of a pink leopard rug. Living rooms, bedrooms. You name it.
Cats rule this time.

I saw this chandelier today in the window of Manchester by the Sea's, Cargo Unlimited and swooned. While I'm not usually one for overtly nautical themes, something about the whimsy of this one (I'm pretty sure Peter Pan is on there right now heading to Neverland) makes it less contrived. If you live near the ocean, and want a fun chandelier, this could be your conversation piece.


Chanel may have made it fashionable but it's undeniable, effortless charm has kept it around. Practically every designer has made one but L.L. Bean does just as good a job at a fraction of the cost.

Aside from the fact that I'm pretty sure these are really unhealthy for the male body, how they look is absolutely ridiculous. While I got on board with women wearing skinny jeans, I draw the line when men start wearing them.... straight men anyway. This look is so absurd on men, it almost makes me not want to wear them myself. So please men... STAY AWAY FROM SKINNY JEANS! Stick with the classics and shop at Levi's, Lucky or Diesel.
Now about those tighty whities......

Since we totally got punk'd on those Gap Hardy boots this past Fall, I'm trying to move on. Summer will be here soon enough, so who needs boots now anyway, right?
Ok, so maybe I'm not totally over them but I will be as soon as I get my toes in these. Part gladiator, part espadrille. Seriously hot..........AND they're available.

I was about to go off on how ridiculous fingerless gloves are when I came across this picture. Katie Holmes, lovingly holding her little girl, wearing the softest looking fingerless gloves. My position started to wane. I mean, I guess she does have more control having her fingers free. She could text Tom Cruise with no problem. She could hold her Starbuck's coffee without fear of dropping it. She could even apply lip gloss from a pot without taking her gloves off.

I know you didn't think those absurdly long lashes on every celebrity who hits the red carpet were because of a) exceptional genes or b) $40 mascara. No, I didn't think so. They are, as you already knew, fake. But don't think fake lashes are for professionals only. Anyone can apply them. Try individual lashes for a more natural look or strip lashes for a more bold look. You can find them at your local drugstore, Sephora, or even order them online.
Phony never looked prettier.

I remember my diary, with a lock of course, when I was 12 years old. I had so much important stuff to say. Was Steven really going with Monica? Did David really like me but did I really like Thacher? 90 pages of nothing. Luckily there's a new way to journal and you actually might get something out of it. The entry pages are short and always have a twist. It asks you multiple choice questions and allows you to fill in the blanks. It gives a quote of the day and makes you think. Today mine asked....
Was today 1) a mermaid 2) smirking 3) street-smart?
Definitely smirking.

It has been said, that at a certain point, a woman must choose between her face and her ass. I am nearing 40 and I'm afraid I'm about to have to make that choice. Apparently, based on new research, being thinner makes women over 40 look older and for every 10 pounds thinner you get, you will look 4 years older. Nice. Get a great ass and there goes the face. Get a great face, have a huge ass. When you see me stuffing my face with donuts you'll know which choice I made. What's yours?

Remember that fountain of youth powder I told you about awhile back? Remember how it made your skin wrinkle free (almost) and gave you a nice even glow? Wouldn't you like that same affect on your eyes? Now you can. Smashbox's Halo Hydrating Perfection Eye Shadow lets you grind the powder as you need it and has that same Halo affect, smoothing out wrinkles instead of burrowing into them. The eye lift can wait.
