an amazing sale happening today over at gilt fuse; they're selling cute little numbers from betsy johnson for a steal. you have to fork over your email and stuff to get into the site, but totally worth it for the deals they have.
looks like christmas has come early for this little gal.

california dreaming

as an independent artist myself, i am all about supporting the indie community by buying handmade treasures to adorn myself, however, what girl does not appreciate a diamond encrusted bauble from an esteemed and world renowned jeweller such as say, van cleef and arpels?

to celebrate their 70th year in america, v&a are launching a 100 one-of-kind piece collection called "california rĂªverie". the pieces will be introduced in their first ever us store in los angeles.

i love seeing jewellery that will be sold for more than a house plus a car being made, something about seeing it in raw form is magical. it ends up being so shiny and sparkly but starts out so rough and deconstructed.

this white gold lovely (it's a palmier collier that can be worn as a brooch or necklace) will only set you back $1.5 million, mheh.

the ny times' blog, the moment, has an interesting article covering this spectacular milestone, and it's a neat look into the world of fine jewellery creation.

brrr, it's cold in here

gearing up for the cold weather means:

o. peoples

i really liked last years campaign by the peoples people with zooey, but I have to say this year's campaign photos are stunning. elijah wood, mheh, shirley manson, va va voom. love her and glad to see she's still relevant today.
I'm digging the art direction, too. it's really classy, and a little trashy.
I already am lusting over the navy blue talyas from last season, but now really want a pair of sunglasses that make look like mrs. manson.

these are for sure on my want list:



model lily cole is getting into the design game by partnering up with some friends in high-design places and launching an uber cozy sounding line of knitwear.
i am always cold, sometimes even in the summer, and so i appreciate a good knit sweater. they also make me want to move to the highlands and raise sheep, obviously.

"Available exclusively online at, the range incorporates a modern range of knitwear pieces that are luxurious yet affordable for fashion savvy individuals, whilst signaling a return to traditional values, and maintaining the rare Wensleydale breed."

'knitted by grannies,
supported by supermodels'


i'm trying to.

Pamela Love for Opening Ceremony's Where the Wild Things Are Collaboration

ok, so a little behind the times with this post. to be honest, i was seriously trying to figure out if i should take OC seriously with their whole "where the wild things are" line of clothing. i mean, taking clothing design inspiration from movies is nothing new, but introducing a line of clothing based on fictional monsters, complete with fur and horns? i was really thinking they were having a laugh believing people would wear that stuff. anyways, i have fallen in love with the line of jewellery pamela love designed for the brand in honour of the movie. really cool looking and something i can take seriously. ;)

i received my first little e-news thingy from none other than "bananas" herself, rachel zoe. so far, so good.

she featured some killer shooties (booties + shoes, cute) that are mighty fine and fab from brian atwood. hawtness.she goes one step further and more commendable to recommend a "parallel universe" version of the much sought after brian atwood version from none other than steve madden. clap-clap-clap.very fine reporting, indeed. i'm thinking i'm going to like hearing about what killer finds are to be had out there rather than gooping it out over what healthy crap i should be eating or enlightening books that are a "must-read" as per gwynnie.

random but deadly post

k, i'm trying to keep this blog sorta focused on whatever it is im focusing it on, but basically i am trying to stay away from random posts about things that only make sense/interest myself. but then, this morning i was just doin' ma thang, checking my google reader like i do every morning before i head off to work, la la la and POW i come across this little nugget of a post and followed the source link to these audacious photos. who would do something like this so early in the morning?!

please be warned, i nearly choked on my cheerios when i saw these photos. they are graphic.

his name is eames, and i need to find his little brothers or sisters asap. everyone needs this cuteness in their lives.

I'm feelin' these wedges like woah.....
w2 bow wedge from opening ceremony

and these rick owens wedges are supreme (and a little badass)....
wedges are the perfect height elevator as they are sooo comfy and you can go a little taller than you would even with a chunkier heel.
