If It Takes Forever...

This scarf is speaking to me. It's saying, "Wait for a final sale. I'll be there." Do scarfs lie? The Lemlem Wanza skinny scarf sells for $75 at J.Crew.

Baby, You're A Design Star!

This is a room from HGTV's new design star, Emily Henderson. I love how she puts her outfits together so it was only fitting that she won the mantle by showing how to dress your room the way you dress yourself. Sounds like Domino? She used to work for the dearly departed magazine. Her new show, Secrets From A Stylist, aired last night on HGTV at 10 EST. Check out her fabulous portfolio.

"Look, Muffy, Another Book For Us!"

Lisa Birnbach's much-anticipated True Prep hits shelves September 7th. I still have my copy of The Official Preppy Handbook somewhere underneath Mummy's Cole Porter records.

"True Prep is a contemporary look at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapt to the new order of things. Birnbach considers the prep attitude towards money (ambivalent), schools (good investment), wardrobe (now your clothes fit), work (some careers will never be prep), decorating (ask mummy), scandal (including rehab and prison), and food and drink (with some classic recipes for both). She also looks at weekends (and what to do to get asked back), entertaining, sports (including sailing and shopping), weddings, etiquette, the Internet and electronic gadgetry, political correctness, reality TV, and . . . polar fleece. And last but not least: a do-it-yourself eulogy." -Amazon Online

Can't wait! True Prep will sell for $10.77 at Amazon.

The hue and cry from Mad Men fans is that Sal, played by Bryan Batt, needs to come back to the agency, which is now Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. What is going on with their new art department? Who is in charge?

Song Of India

When I grow up, I want to be just like India Hicks. She was on HSN this week and I succumbed to the promises of having an island life like India's, or at the very least smelling like an island. As a copywriter, I should no better than to be lured like that, but apparently with this bag and its contents I will be transported to paradise. How could I resist? Click here at your own risk.

Celebrity Cement Ponds

Whatever semblance of sanity I have (hush now), is due in large part to swimming laps everyday. Without this little outlet, I'd be undone.

When I was told to "Go to the eyebrow center" in my first yoga class, I thought they were talking about a special section of Sephora. It's your third eye...who knows.

Don Draper Needs A Decorator

In the new season of Mad Men, we see that Don Draper is in desperate need of a decorator. The drab tenement he's inhabiting is hardly appropriate for a newly single dapper Don. And it's painfully clear by his choice of female companions: hookers, secretaries and debutantes, that he has yet to grasp being a bachelor (he had a hard time grasping being married). Think big, Don. For starters, date a designer who can help you with that ratbox.

Here's a handsome bar cart by Deborah Needleman as seen in Lonny magazine.

Some Like It Hot

I hate to use the four letter "f" word, but sadly FALL is hitting the stores. I practically live on the Equator, so I'm not happy about the sudden presence of woolen sweaters. Baby likes the heat, however this little number for $44.50 from The Loft caught my eye. It's all the FALL I can handle right now.

Now back to your regularly scheduled summer.
