What a strange turn of events this week has taken. People are bracing for inflation, with the Federal Reserve planning to buy a historic quantity of government debt, Obama appeared on Jay Leno and Spring is officially here (though not quite felt-- it snowed in New York this morning)... Here are some strange links to take you into the weekend:

Hi K-- thanks so much for reading! Yeah, I'm totally digging anything that looks different these days. Don't know if I could pull off a head to toe Gothic Lolita ensemble, but it's inspiring, right?

That's a beautiful image! I caught the end of the new "House of Style" and was unimpressed, but I'll give it another try.

Najeema-- Thanks for writing! Yeah-- I really adore it. The Japanese are such straight up glamorous people. So "House of Style"-- not loving it, huh?
