You know how sometimes you hear the first two seconds of a track and instantly know you love it because it’s so old school cool and sweet hot at the same time? This is one of those tracks. “Walk On In,” from Berlin based producer Doc Daneeka. Listen below. Continue reading
Just stuff I want today… Isabel Marant boots and a Monserat De Lucca Bochoa shoulder bag.
I love a good gift list. If I had all the money in the world my friends and family would be so spoiled but in the meantime some fabulous and still (sort of) affordable gifts above and below, starting with one of my favorite scents, the Hermes Eau d’orange verte Eau de cologne spray. Below, wine, books, candles, jewelry, music, films and gadgets for every spoiled brat in your life (including me!) Did I mention the Manolo Blahnik camouflage heels? Yes, they are on the list too.

Full disclosure, I am Russian (and a Jew!) so I have a distinct biased affinity for pickles; I will eat pickled anything. So it didn’t take much convincing for me to trek from the East Village to Brooklyn to check out the three week old Pickle Shack that Brooklyn Brine just gave birth to. The shack (with an awesome backyard garden) is all vegetarian with vegan options but not at all what you would expect. I got the cheddar cheese, carmelized onion, pickle sandwich (with Continue reading
Love this vegan leather messenger bag from Sole Society.
This has been a week of fun dinners, all on West 9th street! Last night we gathered at Omar’s La Ranita to celebrate Eva Mendes’ new collection for New York & Company. The pop up store is officially open for business at the corner of West Broadway and Spring. I got the black and white lace dress with the ribbon tie. I loved all of Eva’s personal touches at the dinner, like handwritten notes to the guests and engraved jewelry boxes. The collection looks great, so many cute and wearable pieces, including the form fitted dresses, which I need to go back for. She did perfect prints and soft trousers, which I fell for as well. Well done Eva! Continue reading
Hair whiz Beth Minardi hosted a dinner with Taryn Manning on Tuesday night at The Lion where we all gathered for a few hours of fun with the girls. Beth is expanding her color line to 75 shades (above) and gave Taryn a hair makeover at the Mark Garrison Salon earlier in the day. I’m still waiting for someone to properly get rid of that hint of red a stylist put in my hair a few years ago so am looking forward to testing out some of the goodies. Photos from dinner below.

Pretty sure these guys had me in mind when they created this. Wine in a flask with sweet graphics. Hello perfect marriage. Washington winery Thorny Rose and the Brooklyn based boutique In God We Trust have created a wine flask that holds two glasses of your favorite poison. And since this is the holidays and everyone deserves a gift, 100% of the proceeds will benefit Waves for Water, a humanitarian organization founded by former professional surfer Jon Rose, that provides relief to families and businesses of the coastal towns hardest hit by hurricane Sandy. The IGWT x Thorny Rose wine flask is available for purchase at In God We Trust boutiques and online. Cheers! Continue reading
Last Wednesday I hosted a dinner at Sunset Tower with Perry Ellis and a group of friends from LA. The brand just released a gorgeous new book in October with Rizzoli, written and compiled by his old friend Jeffrey Banks, about his life and work. The collection for fall and spring looks amazing (can someone please send me the man wearing the clothes as well?) I am officially campaigning for them to re-launch the women’s line too. It’s time please! And a women’s version of the trench coat from fall! Photos from our dinner below, we got a shout out on WWD today too! Continue reading

This week some of London’s most talented designers descended on LA with suites full of gorgeous frocks nestled into the bungalows of the Chateau. After seeing gorgeous prints from Matthew Williamson, Mary Katrantzou and Preen we stayed for cocktails by the pool with old friends and new faces. We also had an impromptu photo shoot with Megan Duffy in the bathroom (see above). Continue reading
