Thin Mint

I didn't partake in the Girl Scout cookie thing this Spring. However, I'm wondering if I shouldn't indulge with this whole DVF thin mint moment. Ignore the frock as I'm definitely not so sure about all that crazy business (though the make up is to die for, love the pink lips). But let's assess the shoes. Whether in mint, or the other colors, I think Mrs. Diane might be on to something. I've loved my Guardian booties from her Fall collection, so may just try these heels out when the weather warms up again.

Take That Mother Nature

Today I found myself taking a walk in 35 degree temperature, a wintry mix and my Mackage Chloe coat. Just one problem -- it's March 27th, daffodils are blooming, clocks are set forward and my coat was packed up until next year. Well I wasn't too annoyed, I love this fur puffy and was more than happy to dig it out and dawn it for another day or two. So take that mother nature!

Purchasing Potential

I've never been much of a Nanette Lepore fan. Actually, I haven't been a fan at all and have never owned a piece of her clothing. I've found it too off the rack. But today my mind was opened and enlightened to the possibilities. After a business lunch in Maryland, some lovely numbers in the Lepore boutique window caught my eye. These three looks are some of my favs -- and dare I say, may qualify for purchasing potential. Plus some cutie bubble shorts I spied. Cu-tie.

Speeding Up

I know it's a sign of weakness to shop out of boredom, so -- I guess that makes me weak. But it's also Spring and there's pep in my step. So to compliment my stride, I am feeling out a new Speedy and thinking of speeding up to a 40 monogram. I know, I know. I have said that I don't like anything monogramed. That stance remains; exception being Louis Vuitton bags and money clips.

Seeing Stars

Thanks for your hospitality Texas, thanks for the wild ride Austin, and thanks for all things digital SxSW. I'm heading home tomorrow from the lone star state -- seeing stars with this addition to my wardrobe from Dolce and Gabbana. So fun!

When It Rains, It Pours

I just love how Lagerfeld makes this umbrella almost hat like. Only he could achieve such a subtle, beautiful nuance. Which pretty much defines his entire Spring 2011 collection. Did I ever tell anyone that when I interviewed with Chanel many years ago, I addressed my thank you note to "Channel". Rookie. Fortunately my typo was caught pre-postage and I still ended up working for the house years later. And ironically there was misspelling story to that era too. I guess when it rains, it pours. Oy.
