Meanwhile in Paris...

A lighter touch for S/S '10:
Gasp after gasp of delight...

Soft origami folds,

A lighter palette;

Dresses and coats:

Yes yes I said yes!

On some looks, puzzling fabric between the legs

Like a saggy diaper: no no no!


First thing's first: Thanks to all who participated in my Chanel book giveaway. I drew a random number on random.org and came up with #49: Krissy from Shimmer Like Gold! Congratulations, Krissy! A juicy biography about Coco Chanel will be heading your way soon! I couldn't locate your email, so please get in touch with me! I will be announcing another giveaway in the near future, so please stay tuned! Hope you enjoy your weekend and these delicious weekend links...

DO/SEE

Fifth on Main
, a new boutique which will be launching this Fall, will be hosting a pop-up shop to give New York shoppers a taste of the wonderful list of designers they have on tap... Designers include: Cynthia Steffe, Mint by Jodi Arnold, Badgley Mischka and Nicholas K. Check out the shop tonight between 5-8 pm for complimentary nibbles and wine. 421 West Broadway, between Prince & Spring. The shop will be open daily between 9 am to 8 pm through Wednesday October 7th.

Jil Sander for Uniqlo launched yesterday. And while there may be slim pickings today, I may be swinging by to see if they have any of those dark marshmallow puffer coats or that luscious tuxedo coat I was eyeing online...

The cuties at Hi Fashion did a "Style Swap" interview with me. I love quizzes and questionnaires, so this was right up my alley! Check it out here.


Check out these amazing giveaways: enter to win an adorable mini Diana camera keychain at our.city.lights and a Mandizzle giveaway (love that name) at It's Unbeweavable!

Read this informative post on Chic in the Tropics about how you can help victims of the crazy destructive typhoon that blew over the Philippines and parts of Vietnam recently. (Parenthetical rant: Lately, I've been bemoaning my corporate dayjob, feeling too paralyzed or scared to make a leap into a career change and yes... feeling sorry for myself. But having my eyes open to unfortunate disasters like this one, snaps the perspective back into me. I can see how fortunate I am... and how everything is but a small blip in the grander scheme of things. I feel empowered, ready to take on the challenges ahead. We are all fortunate in our own ways... )

Be well, friends...

Kashaya said...

I don't like the "diaper-look" in the first two pictures...

Sher said...

Love the loose origami look in the last two photos. The first two? Let's just say my kids would disown me.

Great interview! I would love a trip around the world too. But I can't wait for you to post pictures from your coming trip.

FabBlab said...

The last and first photos= love.

Also, your style swap with HiFashion=love.

ALSO, just got your postcard! Will be posting on Monday 'bout it because I just did a new post. Love always, XO

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Your blog title is hilarious. I love the collection, but yeah...kind of strange. :)
I read your interview at HF the other day and it was AMAZING!

Jaime said...

Congrats to winner- fab giveaway! And I don't think diapers are for me...haha

Have a good weekend!

Krissy said...

Oh wow! I've never won anything before, so this is super duper exciting!! :D Thank you so much! My e-mail is shimmerlikegold[@]gmail.com

I looove Rick Owens, too. I know a lot of people have given his collection slack for being a bit overly baggy, but I like it. I like the flowiness. (Yup, inventing a word. haha) And the colour palette is great too - very subtle, but shimmery.

KIRAFASHION said...

Beautiful, beautiful!!

daisychain said...

I usually love Rick Owens, but the diaper look didn't appeal to me at all.

kpeach said...

oh no-true on the diaper-but the rest is fab! I need to go check out the whole collection. happy friday! xx

Savvy Gal said...

the first two images are interesting but not for me. Generally I do like Rick Owens though....

LENORENEVERMORE said...

ps:
Thoughts & prayers to all the victims of this devastating natural disasters...is the world coming to an end soon?! What's happening theses days...

INCREDIBLE!

Denise @ Swelle said...

Well, I guess that look 'Depends' what you're into! (Was that a bad joke or what? But seriously, that diaper look makes me think of some unfortunate scenes I witnessed while making the mistake of looking into the rooms on my way to see my grandfather at the hospital).

About perspective - what an incredible calm it can give. I think we're on the same page with trying to figure out our next step and that uncertainty can be overwhelming. These latest horrible events have also made me realise how lucky we are to have options in life. Never mind a roof over our heads and knowing where our loved ones are! And I fret about a zit. Shame on me!

Toothfairynotes said...

Hi dear,
I'd like to thank you for your postcard! I haven't received any so far, and I haven't heard any one receiving the ones I've sent either. I hope the project is working out so far?

Have a great weekend!

Dee!! Once again, we're on the same page. I was thinking the same thing (about keeping my little life problems in perspective) & just posted about it - in my case, inspired & moved by something Lynn had said.

Also, your title is hysterical.

thank you for your lovely comments - as always!! - & sorry, I meant to tell you I tagged you. I haven't told anyone yet, but tomorrow hopefully is my catch-up day.
