Off to Cuba! Be back soon!
Okay, so before you start guessing, you need to know that this is not just any old basket…it is made by CHANEL. Remember the Spring/Summer 2010 barn show? Well, this was one of the bags that the models carried. Now how much would you shell out for a designer accessory like that?
Guess the price and then click to see if you were right!

Ok, I love Chanel! Mostly the little tweed blazers that I’ll probably never own in a million years, or the classic quilted purses that I will own in less than a million years. I love Chanel’s infamous interlocking CC’s and have been a Chanel lover for many years now. But stamping my forehead with their logo? Definitely would not do that. Now this is just an art project, which I have to admit, is quite creative…but I honestly think that there is an actual market for such a thing. Branding just took on a whole other meaning.
Would you get your forehead stamped with Chanel’s or any other brand’s logo?

Love these dolls so much! I want them all! There’s Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Gareth Pugh, Proenza Schouler…and more! If I had a daughter, I would definitely want her to have one of these Kouklitas (which seems like a Spanish-ified version of the Russian word for doll – Koukla). I can’t decide on my favorite here. They are all so cute! A little creepy too (they remind me of those 3D paintings by Phoebe from Friends, remember those?)…but still more cute than creepy! Which one is your fave?

Congratulations are in order for Marc Jacobs and Lorenzo Martone, who, according to The Cut, got married in St Barts this week! Such a low-key wedding for Jacobs comes as a surprise. For some reason, I expected a more lavish ceremony from those two. Either way the newlyweds look so relaxed and happy, and the cake topper is super cute! Mazel tov!
Update: The designer did not tie the knot, according to his rep. Perhaps it was some sort of a rehearsal or a decoy? Or was it? I’m sure the internet will be abuzz with “did he or didn’t he” questions for a while. Will keep you posted!

Happy New Year, my dearest readers! Hope 2010 brings you all that you wish for! Hope you are spending tonight with the people that matter, and doing things that you love! Have fun and be safe, wherever you are! Thank you for your comments and emails! See you next year!
It’s finally here! December 24th! After months and months of preparation, I am finally done Christmas shopping, decorating, baking, cooking, and all that jazz. Am now allowed to sit back and enjoy the holidays. Well, sort of, since I still have to work today…but starting tomorrow, I am officially on a mini-vacation!
I hope you all are having an amazing holiday season, full of wonderful moments shared with loved ones. Hope your gifts are everything you wished for (or at least include a gift receipt)! And hope that this Christmas/Hanukkah/whatever brings you only happiness and no (or very little) stress! Thank you all for reading! And Happy Holidays!
PS. If you are braving the malls on Boxing Day…first of all, you are a very courageous person, and second of all…good luck!
Or does it? V Magazine’s photoshoot, featuring a plus-size model Crystal Renn head to head with a skinnier colleague Jacquelyn Jablonski wearing exact same outfits is trying to tell us that it doesn’t. But with various immature comments, criticizing Renn, or even calling Jablonski, who is 5’9″ and measures 32/24/34, “curvy”, it is painfully clear that this industry is not size-blind.
Having said that, a major magazine, showcasing beautiful and healthy girls wearing non-sample sizes, including a shoot photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, who has once famously proclaimed that “no one wants to see curvy women”, is perhaps yet another small step in the right direction. Until then, we have these gorgeous photos of Crystal to prove, that beauty surely does come in all sizes and shapes.
More photos after the jump!
Who hasn’t received a bad Christmas gift? From bad wine to useless tools to bad chocolates, most of us have seen it all! So when I saw Style List’s guide to banned gifts (ones that will surely be re-gifted or forgotten or land you in a doghouse), I knew that I had to share it with you! The list is dead-on, and the alternatives offered are definitely much better substitutes to things like Fruit Cake (though Bacon Jam will never make it on my list). So if you still have some shopping to do, read on, and whatever you do, remember that, as cliché as it sounds, the worst gift you can possibly give is one without any thought put into it.
