Lynn Yaeger, fashion writer, style icon. Love her so much. I saw her at most of the shows I attended. And she was yawning at Erin Wasson. LOL.
Fabiola Beracasa, who apparently writes for Interview now, huddled in a fashion sandwich with an unknown beauty and the designers for Preen.
By the time most of you read this, I will be on a plane, headed to Houston for the weekend. Why Houston, you ask? Because it's probably the furthest you could get from the buzzing metropolis that is New York City. I'm feeling a little burnt out from Fashion Week and my dayjob, and in need of some serious R and R. Rain was forecast for Miami and New Orleans and since the Mr. and I have friends in Houston, we decided to go there. Anyone have suggestions for things to do, places to see? The Mr. and I also finalized plans for our five year wedding anniversary trip next month: two weeks in Tokyo and Thailand. I am dreaming about all the food, shopping and spa treatments our trip will yield as I type... Ahhhhhhhhh. It's time to relax.
Hope you enjoy one of the first weekends of Fall, and if you have time, please visit these weekend links:

I want to thank the lovely Haute Shopper for bestowing a "Divine" award on my blog. She has been studiously profiling boutiques around the world on her blog, and I love visiting for my vicarious thrills.
The name of the game is to list five guilty pleasures in life. What are yours?
(1) TV shows (Mad Men and Glee top my list at the moment);
(2) A deep and abiding love for wine (especially of the bubbly variety);
(3) Spa treatments (although I've been so busy that I haven't had as much time to indulge as much as I would like);
(4) Twitter ;) and
(5) Online shopping.
I would like to tag the following five bloggers who are MY guilty pleasures at the moment (to borrow the phrasing from Ms. Haute Shopper):
Ciao Chessa! (she's just awesome, alright?? a talented photographer)
Lady Lunacy (another amazing photographer and her blog is just amazing- check out her NYFW backstage shots- GORGEOUS)
vitaMinn style (she is oh so creative and divine with her style)
Nini Style (OMG this girl recently rocked over the knee boots like crazy and inspired me to try them out myself)
alixrose (we recently hung out at Fashion Week and I already miss her!)
What will you be doing this weekend??
