Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's




You can also scatter my ashes at CVS, Target or J.Crew. Truth be told, I want my ashes thrown in the faces of ex-boyfirends who've crossed me. Can't wait! 
"It's the most mythic of all American emporiums - and the scene of many an ultimate fashion fantasy. Now audiences get a rarified chance to peek behind the backroom doors and into the reality of the fascinating inner workings and fabulous untold stories from Bergdorf Goodman's iconic history. The legend, the parties, the fashion idols, the windows, the women, the buyers and shoppers - and most of all, the quintessentially American dreams of New York's high-fashion hot-spot - all come to life in an ode to a realm where creativity and commerce reign equally supreme." - Bergdorf-Movie

Smell Me Later

Passiflora Rollerball By Nest 

Passiflora had me at "an overdose of lush green notes" plus it has passion flower, water hyacinth, and lily of the valley. I wore it to bed last night and had the most wonderful dreams. Alexander Skarsgård was my office husband which just made work so much nicer. Just saw him in What Maisie Knew. He and his hair were really good in it. Check out the trailer

New Makeup Must-Have

Fit Me Shine Free Foundation
Maybeline ($6.99) Target

My summer face is a darker shade of pale so I've been on the hunt for an inexpensive fix (for foundation I usually use MAC or Lancome). I tried this new makeup from Maybeline because I heard good things about it and was pleasantly surprised. Even my impossible to please mother really liked it. Love that it doesn't break the bank.

For The Love Of Foxes

Townhouse Fox Necklace ($38) Ann Taylor

"To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you, I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world…” ―Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince

Hell To The Oui!


French Riviera By Xaviar Girard ($45) Assouline

Gasp! This is available for preorder on Assouline.
"There has never been any place on earth quite like the French Riviera in the 1920s and early 30s. Artists and writers from all over the world- including Picasso, Man Ray, Stravinsky, Coco Chanel, Cocteau, Edith Wharton, Diaghilev, and Hemingway- came to invent a new way of life. This photo-biography shows these mythic personalities living in a world divided between a thirst for creation, the hunt for happiness, and the ominous approach of World War II. With access to extraordinary personal archives published for the first time, you will witness firsthand the life and work of some of the most important artists of the 20th century."- Assouline

What Not To Wear Tonight


Season 10 of What Not To Wear premieres tonight at 10 on TLC. Sadly, this is their last season. On a lighter note, I think cities should be able to impose fines for fashion violations. There would be a fountain filled with champagne on every corner. America the beautiful indeed.

The drawings featured in the book are based directly off of the sketches done by Yves Saint Laurent (1936–2008). “Rive Gauche,” Laurent's initial collection, was the first-ever ready-to-wear collection made by an haute couture designer. Prêt-à-Porter gives you a look behind-the-scenes of Laurent's collection and allows you to incorporate your own creativity into his sketches."- Barneys
