New Kids on the Block

This past week two babies were born into fashion royalty (and part rock royalty as well).  They will wear the finest attire and people like Michael Kors and Gwyneth Paltrow will show up at their birthday parties with arms full of gifts.

First up is Stella McCartney’s fourth child (and second girl), named Reiley, born Nov. 23.  The Stella McCartney kid’s line just came out, I’m sure all four of them will be covered in it head to toe.  I would wear it and I am almost 20.

And then over the weekend fashion editrix and Project Runway judge, Nina Garcia currently at Marie Claire, gave birth to another boy, named Alexander.

Looks like 10 year old Willow Smith will have some competition when the kids get a little older.  They both have a lot of fashion in their genes and will surely be watched to see how their style evolves over the year.

Ford Takes Paris

We all know that Tom Ford was the guest editor for the December issue of French Vogue, and now, finally, the pictures are out.  They are all very crisp and sexual, not a lot of romance or blurry, whimsical images for the legendary designer.  For the cover, he chose 15 year old, Daphne Groenveld, pillow lips and all, and you can see Ford lurking in the background.  I actually think the art direction and make up is beautiful, if not slightly creepy.

Of what I have seen of the other editorials, the picture with the children in the make up is my favorite so far.  Crystal Renn makes an appearance as well, though she is hardly recognizable under the bandages and fake plastic surgery.

I’m eager to see the rest of the magazine, once it comes to America I will have to scoop it up!

Beachy Holiday

Every year my family and I trek up to our Cape Cod house for Thanksgiving. So between the obligatory pie and turkey and starch we venture down to the beach. With me and my vintage Pendleton sweater we usually play football or have photo shoots (aunt and uncle are photographers). Besides we have to burn off breakfast before the 6 pies we will be having for dessert in a few hours.

Poly Pockets

As November comes to an end, I realized that I didn’t post the French Vogue cover for the month!

Natasha Poly landed the cover with amazing hair and make up, very nomad chic.  Models on covers are simply the best, and this is proof of it.

Book Me

Last day of school before Thanksgiving break, thought I should make it a more intellectual post.

Passed, (and later went into) this lovely book store on 10th Ave. down in Chelsea, around 21st St.

Book stores are one of my Top 3 favorite places to visit, and this one has definitely been added to the list.

Happy Reading!

One Ring to Rule Them All

I have turned into a ring person.  I have my share of vintage cocktail rings from huge gaudy stones to chunky gold ones.  But now I love thin, simple bands, mainly in gold.  I wear six rings everyday but seven is my lucky number, and I think I need to get a new one.  After scouring the internet, I have found my favorites.  Now the only question is, which is going to be lucky number seven?
