And my favorite….. I keep trying these shoes on, mentally.


Ann Demeulemeester Headpieces

Posted in Accessories, DIY, Fashion, Structure & Form by Michelle on September 10, 2010

I’ve been continually eyeing these feather headpieces, by Ann Demeulemeester, for months and months – with no other reason than that they are so pretty. They’re of the few pieces of art I continually revisit, just to look at and sigh. At $700+ there’s no way I can afford it. Time to DIY it!

This boot is hotness! The goat hair might need periodic combing to keep it shiny, silky, and lustrous. F/W 2010. $925 at Bergdorf Goodman.

Incase Chrome Slider

Posted in Gadgets / Gear by Michelle on March 29, 2010

A few months ago, I wrote about the beauty of gold detailed gadgets. Today, I decided I’m going for this gold chrome iPhone 3g case by Incase, $35. Snazzy, tacky, and a little bit gaudy. Just what I like.

P.S. I’m so indecisive…. I can’t choose between gold or bronze. And I’m starting to like the silver one as well.

Prior to this post, I had no idea of the news of Alexander McQueen’s death earlier during the day. R.I.P. Alexander McQueen.


Stunning lace work like I’ve never seen.
