This is one of the prettiest rings I’ve ever seen… with one of my favorite stones, the amethyst. Do you like?
Long time, no talk. Buenos Aires was a great time. The weather was beautiful -70s every day- and Ariel’s mom’s art show was a hit. I also did A LOT of eating… of some of this:
And lots of drinking of this:
Anyhow, since I’ve returned, I’ve been entrenched with his contest Rachel Zoe and Piperlime.com are running called “Be The Next Big Stylist.” You can check out the details here.
To quickly summarize, I had to put together three looks (unlimited entries). The first look is for a client’s ten-year high school reunion, the second for a high-powered exec who wants a day-to-night look, and the third a client who needs a dress for a best friend’s wedding. Here’s a look at my top 3:
High School Reunion
I always knew I had an uncanny kinship with Elaine Benes. Our neurotic temperament, wit, dance moves, career choices, love of all things Jewish … I can go on and on.
In the spirit of Elaine, I introduce to you the (REAL!) J. Peterman Company.
(T.J., you’ve made my day with this find!)
Can you believe it really exists?? I can’t. I’m speechless. I want to work for Mr. Peterman and write his catalog descriptions. My new life goal.
Just look at his wares!
It looks like Mr. Peterman is based in Lexington, Kentucky… so, maybe I can work remotely?? ; )
This morning I was enlightened by Shannon over at Wardrobe Review about the new line of clothing over at Lands’ End called Canvas. Seriously, this is the LAST thing I needed to find, folks. In a few words, Canvas appears to be a more moderately priced JCrew (the devil I noted in yesterday’s post).
So, here we go again… let’s see what’s in my imaginary cart.
My pal Joy just received these precious little things in the mail today… and they’re surprisingly really, really great! I say surprisingly because they’re marketed as “rain shoes” and they’re rubber… and usually that doesn’t make for pretty.
At the affordable price of $55, I would say to get one in every color (but that’s just me). You can definitely get your wear out of these, and it definitely does not need to be raining outside to wear them.
Joy thinks they fit a little snug, and they only come in whole sizes, so I would order up.
Oh, and JCrew is the devil because they keep sending me these damn “extra 20% off” emails. Stop, I beg of you! You don’t know what this does to me!
