Who can’t use a little price break this time of year? Yeah, me too, so I found some super cute stuff for under $50. Charlotte Russe floral pumps, J. Crew long crystal claret necklace, Madden Girl crossbody bag, Harrod’s London sketch i-Phone case, Modcloth Just a Tinge of Fringe circle scarf in burgundy, Laconic double breasted long sleeve coat (this one is a total steal, it’s pretty chic for $40), Abercrombie Zoe dress in white, and Forever 21 buckled lace up boots.

Add To The Gift List: New Releases December 9th


I like to wait until the last minute to do my holiday shopping because there is always something that pops into my head, which is just perfect for someone I love. December 9th two more items hit the stores that should be added to your list for some of the creative peeps in your life or to your own shelves. Jennifer Williams’ cool book of drawings based on her blog, What My Daughter Wore, comes out along with Mute Records’ latest release from The Knife. “Shaken Up Versions,” is a remix of their recent live tour, which marks the end of an era and the last tour the band will ever do.

The Letter


The letter written by Neal Cassady, which inspired Jack Kerouac’s writing style for On The Road and had been lost for 65 years was recently found in San Francisco in an old box. Like most liberal arts school graduates I have a healthy obsession with that period of American culture and literature so I think this is really cool. It’s being auctioned off in two weeks in California by Profiles in History.

Films to See At Least Once In Your Life

The list is endless but these are essential viewing, especially if you love film. In the Mood For Love by Wong Kar Wai, probably the most beautiful film ever made is above and more below. You actually don’t even need subtitles for In the Mood because it is so impeccably shot and poetically told that the words become totally inconsequential to understanding the story, which is also timeless. Continue reading

Thursday’s Parties

krista louise smith

There were a lot of fun parties and events this week in NYC. Unfortunately I was too freaked out by the cold to leave my house in the evening until last night. Yes, my Russian soul is officially dead and I hate the cold. But last night I ventured out to hit a few fun soirees and in between popped into the Castle Fitzjohns gallery on Orchard Street where I fell in love with this painting by Brooklyn based artist Krista Louise Smith. Then I went to a party on the third floor of The Spotted Pig for the release of Department of Records‘ first album, a recording of John Perry Barlow reading his manifesto, “A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace,” where I had a full on conversation with Anthony Haden Guest. Yes, that happened and I’m still swooning. I miss old school “celebrities”. Also, the deviled eggs were really good last night. A perfect evening (*and it wasn’t even that cold out).

Fallon, Rachel Antonoff & Wren


Three of our favorite designers are having a huge sale starting tomorrow through the weekend in NYC. Fallon, Wren and Rachel Antonoff will be at 347 West 36th Street suite 1204 with a ton of awesome stuff for up to 85% off. Sweet. Looking cute for the holidays will definitely help steer the conversation away from why Charles Manson is about to get married and you’re not. (What?!)
