Patsy Stone said it best: you can never have enough hats, gloves and shoes.
Here’s another photo dump from yesterday. I’ll keep it simple and straightforward. No captions whatsoever. For inquiries about hats and clothes, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
[Edit - 7:32PM: I've been getting lots of emails where I get my tights... where else? www.welovecolors.com]
InsideMyBag.com: What’s inside your handbag?
You know what I need? I fucking need a maternity leave. That’s what I need. I feel like I just gave birth!!! It’s soo hard being a one-man circus. I had to do ALL the work by myself! But you know what? It’s all worth it in the end. You really don’t know how happy I am at the moment to finally get this baby off my plate. The feeling of having accomplished something is priceless.
After countless hours and several days of "work", ladies, trannies and gentlemen, I now present you the all-new InsideMyBag.com!
There are a few things I need to add like a little link exchange button for those of you who would like to exchange links but other than that, all the main goodies are there — a showcase of what’s inside people’s handbags.
Go right ahead and bombard me with your submissions! I’d love to see what you keep inside your bags. Anonymity is 100% guaranteed unless you want me to credit you. Be sure to read the submission guidelines. Do keep in mind that all entries are welcome and I do not discriminate.
I’ll forever be indebted if you support my little online project – don’t keep it a secret! Tell everyone from Altus, Arkansas to Sydney, Australia. Help me promote my online venture to the world! We all deserve a second, third or maybe a fourth chance and this time around, I promise to dedicate time and effort on my little baby. I don’t want to be one of those irresponsible mothers who leave their kids to the nanny while they snort cocaine at 7 in the morning.
With that being said… I hope you enjoy the new site and check back often because I’ll update it lots!
I love you all! You guys inspire me to do more and more and more and more and more and more and more!
Diane Pernet’s You Wear It Well
Oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god. It all started with one phone call. I telephoned my designer acquaintance a few days ago because I wanna buy some of her fabulous, fabulous hand-made hats. I wanna slap myself for being a no-show at her fashion show last month. I hate being a busy bee. Ugh!!! Her clothes are gorgeous I tell you. Gorgeous. We were supposed to meet up the other day but my damn driver gave some drama — we ended up chatting on the phone for quite some time.
We talked about all sorts of things like how some of her pieces are soooo ***ME*** and how I should just go to her studio and try things on. So I was like, omg yeah, we should do that and we could take pictures!
Nan Kempner’s Closet Part Deux: The Art of Dressing
As some of you already know, the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute ended their "Nan Kempner: American Chic" exhibit over the weekend. As a little personal tribute to Mrs. Thomas Kempner herself and to all of her fans around the world, here’s an old piece from American Harper’s Bazaar.
I’m 100% sure that Nan’s astounding personal style and taste will always be remembered by generations upon generations to come. Nan is definitely, hands-down, the best-dressed socialite in the entire universe. Every dime a dozen hand-me-down-money rich bitch is a fucking rodent compared to her.
Thanks, Thomas from NYC for sharing these wonderful HB scans. Unless you have high-speed internet access, don’t even bother clicking the link because all the images you are about to see are ginormous! You may want to contact Harper’s Bazaar directly and purchase a back issue.
Calling the attention of Kamiseta…
I went to the mall yesterday afternoon to send something via DHL. On my way back, I saw a cute little tee on the shop window at Kamiseta, a popular Filipino "high street" chain amongst third world teenage girls with clothes (and pricing) similar to my perennial favourite, Delia’s.
You want ostentation I’ll give you ostentation. Tasteful ostentation. Meet the ultimate cocktail ring. 30.43 cts, fancy yellow cushion-cut diamond rung from who else — The House of Graff — purveyors of the MOST FABULOUS JEWELS IN THE WORLD — LITERALLY!
I’ve been a big fan of Graff for the longest time now because a lot of their pieces are downright beautiful. A friend and I browsed some pieces online earlier. Nothing beats a good ol’ simple, beautiful rock set in the simplest possible way ever — afterall, it’s the rock that has to radiate! Anything with little diamonds or stones on the side or whatever is simply too gaudy.
Now this, on the other hand, is sheer beauty.
Ooooh the memories. The first time I set foot inside a Graff boutique was in London’s Bond Street was back in the dark ages. I’ll never forget having Dolce & Gabbana (yes, as in Dolce & Gabbana) within a spitting distance away from me.
Naturally I came out empty handed.
At least I got free champagne. LOL.
Wouldn’t it be soo funny if I scar someone’s face with that absolutely stunning & beautiful fuck-you finger 30.43ct yellow diamond adornment? Got a a couple of million DOLLARS lying around? If I have to ask, I can’t afford it. And clearly I don’t have the guts to ask my fairy godmother because it’s blatantly obvious that it would take wayyy more than selling my soul to satan for me to be able to "acquire it".
Finger candy available at Graff, Las Vegas.
Photo courtesy of my fairy godmother, of course.
Remember kids — it’s free to dream!
Failing that, there’s always costume jewelry…. or NEW chinchilla cooats for for the less-fortunate such as myself. =) WE NEED FILTHY RICH ARABS! NOW!!!! OTHERWISE, BELGIAN DIAMOND THIEVES WILL DO JUST FINE.
Grand & Glamorous:
Christian Dior Ready to Wear/Pret-a-Porter Fall/Winter 2007-2008 FW 07-08
Stratospherically grand and outrageously glamorous, Big Daddy John Galliano definitely upped the prêt-a-porte ante with his latest collection for Christian Dior. When the pictures came in, I found myself ask the $64 million dollar question – IS THIS READY TO WEAR?
