OBSESSED / WAW! clutch by Sarah's Bag

27.5.14




What a lot of intricate work on such a teeny tiny clutch.  I mean, the rainbow comic bubble and the WAW! in all caps are attention-grabbing enough.  It's the mini white flowers on red that put this crazy clutch over the top.

PARIS / La Bedroom du BHV

26.5.14





Your dreams of watching a classic cinematic 'oeuvre' while lounging on a bed in your PJ's in a chic downtown parisian department store can finally come true.  From June 30th - July 18th, the BHV Marais will be playing classic films in the historic store's observatory tower to a lucky group of sixty movie-goers avec pyjamas (or sans) who will chill out on large beds while sipping cocktails.  The menu of films include the likes of Top Gun, Flahsdance, Lost in translation, Manhattan, Pulp Fiction and The Big Lebowski.  This might be the ideal situation where neither one of you will be able to fall asleep at the movies.

COOL / inflatable loungers by IMAISDE

23.5.14





Finally an inflatable lounger that has style and does not involve beer logos or cup holders.  Designed by Spain based out-of-the-box-thinkers imaisde (which is, I believe, the phonetic way of spelling 'Amazed'?),  this collection of 3 different inflatable loungers undoubtedly live up to their collective name, CHAT, what with their comfortable design, cheery colors, and easy linking system which allows you to form a sort of lounger convoy that can drift far off into the horizon.  Ariba ariba!

MYKONOS / Cavo Tagoo



For pure Mykonos luxury in every sense - hotel, pool, gastronomic, design - Cavo Tagoo is unsurpassed.  Nestled into the hillside on the far end of Mykonos town, away from all of the noise from party-goers and night crawlers, Tagoo is the beacon of the island's low-key chic approach to relaxation and style.  

With only a handful of minimally designed suites and villas, no expense has been spared.  Each room has its own swimming pool and a slew of modern amenities from plush robes to down pillows and to Simmons bed mattresses.  For a little night action, guests can lounge on floating beds and chill at the aquarium bar with some of the island's glitterati.

Drooling over this crazy blinged out clutch by MERCI.  Covered in gold mirrored crystals and teeny rhinestones, this is one heck of a way to make yourself known.  It could almost have its own rap album.

TODAY'S LOOK: Spring Fresh

12.5.14




Ahhh, finally spring is here!  The sun is out!  Flowers budding everywhere!  The smell of magnolia trees!  I was inspired to wear something fresh and virile.  Here is what I am wearing today:

PARIS / Bistrot d'Henri

8.5.14






This is not a sexy scenester Parisian 'boite.'  This is not where you will run into French celebrity hipsters like Mélanie Laurent and Vanessa Bruno.  Neither will you rub elbows with chic fashion icons like Emmanuelle Alt and Carinne Roitfeld.  No.  This bistro is a very local, a very real, and a very sober place to eat traditional heart-felt French cuisine.

WANT: Scandia Easy Chair



Designed in 1957 and produced until the 1970's — when the factory burned down — the Scandia Senior Easy Chair is a classic piece of Scandinavian design reborn. The Scandia Series was designed in 1957 by Hans Brattrud of Norway. In 2001, Paal Lunder founded the Norwegian furniture manufacturer, Fjord Fiesta, and made it his goal to bring Scandia back.  Working closely with Hans Brattrud, Fjord Fiesta was able to re-create this chair and ensure each detail was as perfect as the original chair.  An iconic piece.

Yup, I can definitely see this in the studio, right next to the window.  Anything with the word "easy" in its description is good by me.

Mmmm how yummy is this grained leather loop tote by J. W. Anderson?  It's actually not that huge - about 12.5" x 12" - so it is perfect for running around on a Saturday from yoga to brunch to store, neatly tucked under your arm.  Yessss.
