Silence Is Golden


Don't Speak! 
Designed for Shabby Apple by Taryn Gerber, these swimsuits inspired by the silent era are speaking to me, albeit with subtitles. They really showcase a gal's gams and they won't break the bank.

The Mad Men Countdown Is On!


Next week at this time we will no longer feel the emptiness of a Downton Abbey-less existence because Mad Men will be back. Be a total geek and click here for AMC's countdown clock to the season premiere (or just write it down somewhere). Tomorrow the Mad Men cast hits NBC's Today Show so go ahead and make all the necessary preparations.

Tangerine Tango Crosses Pond!


Tangerine Tango is unstoppable. In a bold move, Pantone's color of the year crosses the pond and cuddles up to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton). The happy pairing made a big splash at London's Olympic Park.

Ready For Adventure



Retro Travel Bags ($32) Flight 101

For a vacay or even a staycay, these bags from Flight 101 are just the thing. Packing is my favorite part of being on holiday. I also like the ice machines, tiny shampoo bottles and furniture glued to the wall.

Vases And Other Flying Objects

Wash My Hair Then Get Out Of Here

Out Of Africa Collector's Series ($34.99) Amazon

To me the perfect relationship is like the one that Meryl Streep and Robert Redford have in Out Of Africa. She's got her thing. He's got his thing. Every now and then he comes around and washes her hair and then he leaves her alone. So nice. A special edition of Out Of Africa which includes a 44-page book is available today.

About That Leg Thing...

Claudette Colbert In It Happened One Night
A Pretty Leg Can Be Used To Fetch A Ride 


So Oscar night we found out that Angelina Jolie is in fact human. To appear sexy, she pulled a desperate tenth-grade girl move when clearly all she needed to do was show up. I've never been comfortable with such tactics. Instead, I've relied on my quick wit and keen mind…  Dear God, is that what I'm doing wrong? After all, Angelina has Brad Pitt. Perhaps I should reconsider the whole leg thing. It certainly worked for Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night.
