Reduce, Re-use, ReCreate

I dont know if it gets any more altered and cool than this. Check out this furniture from Designer Katie Thompson's philosophy is recycle, redecorate, redesign. Old things plus new things; sounds like home to me.

Hommage A Chanel

Definitely one of the most exquisite gifts I've ever gotten. So true to who I am, and to the giver, Colette Copeland ( Colette and I share an interest in sewing, in words, and above all, in adoration of the woman, Coco Chanel. Colette sketched this looking at a bottle of Number Five and using a copy of the original label. Thank you Colette, for such a stunning gift that illustrates what we love so much: the art of elegance. Colette, like Coco, you are tres elegant. Merci.

Los Angeles Fashion Week is a wonderful time for us fashion enthusiasts to get up close and personal to indie designers and celebrate So Cal glamour. I was lucky enough to have been invited to the Project Ethos Fashion Show ( for the second year in a row. Last year it was a treat, and this time around, I was equally excited. While I rarely venture out to L.A. the collections and prospect of meeting new people make it worth my while.

The show was hosted by Project Runway Season 2 contestant Nick Verreos. Amazing fashions paraded down the runway from,,,, and Gordana Gehlhausen's ( Project Runway season 6) collection,

I of course enjoyed getting gussied up with my pal Serena of Made Woman Magazine ( I'm wearing a sparkler that I bought recently and hadn't worn out yet. This was the perfect occasion. Dress: Haute Hippe ( Earrings: made lovingly by my mum. Cuff: Juicy Couture. Shoes: Miu Miu (you can't see them, but they're there, I swear).

The second best part about being a member of the press at a fashion show (besides the close seats) is the goodie bag. Thank you Project Ethos for inviting me, Serena for being my date, and Carlton Hair for the goodies! It was a fabulous night for this fashion lover.

Happy Feet

Who says your shoes can't have a sense of humor? Check out these heels by From bottom to top: a tongue sticking out, tennis heels, slingshot, shopping basket, corset boot, stepping on gum, and a banana peel. I love it when fashion designers don't take themselves so seriously. Hope this makes you smile today : )
