Speaking of Karl Lagerfeld (re: my last post about his face on your chest)

26 Jan

…Doesn’t this video make him seem, dare I say it…sweet? I mean, the guy’s been known to say some pretty stupid things, specifically about how much ladies weigh – like he doesn’t like “curvy” people (i.e. Heidi Klum, naturally). What this means after deep interpretation is that he only likes lettuce-eating rabbit people, known colloquially as “models.” And I’m not saying this video made me love him, but, well – he seemed sweet. He also seemed, genuinely, to think he never does enough and often feels lazy, which I totally relate to. Anyway – he’s not going win any people of the year awards in my book, okay? I just thought this was an interesting, softer take on the otherwise total ass, Chanel couturier. So sue me.

Would you wear this?

25 Jan

…Cuz I totally would. Karl Lagerfeld all over your chest. If you’re a SF seeking men, this will likely help you weed out the straights because they’ll have no idea what the hell it is you’re wearing. You’re welcome.

Ze Friday Nitez

24 Jan

What did you do on Friday night?

I sipped on the most delicious hot chocolate in the whole wide world at La Lanterna – yes, better than your grandma’s homemade hot chocolate – then stumbled upon a live jazz trio at Garage and enjoyed the music with some people from…an island that isn’t short…who weren’t exactly on board with said jazz. It’s called culture, my friends, culture.  I also convinced these same folks that my water was a quadruple vodka on the rocks that cost exactly $32. When you have a habit, I mean, you do what needs to be done. Like prostitute yourself out, which was precisely how I explained affording my habit. I think at that point they knew I was joking…but one can’t be sure.

Anywho – the night was grand. I mean what’s better than a fantastic cup of chocolate warmth and some jazz to take the chill out? Ain’t nothin’.

Below, please find my cup-o-chocolate upon delivery and about halfway through. Mmm. Me want more.

Coco Chanel in the Flesh

20 Jan

Have you ever SEEN Coco Chanel? I haven’t! Not speaking, at least. This video is pretty fascinating with Coco speaking in her native French (if only I had payed more attention in class!) and sounding bored and uh, completely intimidating. But, as Stylite (where I originally found this video) says, “Maybe it’s because she’s standing up the whole time. Or maybe it’s because she’s COCO CHANEL.” Yeah – it’s ‘cuz she’s Coco Chanel.

Subway Boots

20 Jan

I took this photo on the way back from an event at SoHi (the amazing event space in the Trump Soho Hotel), really because I’m obsessed with my new boots. Like, obsessed. I thought I’d create a shrine beginning with a private photo of just my feet and the subway platform. You may judge me – that’s okay, go ahead. I don’t expect you to understand.  I ended up liking the photo a lot though, so I’m sharing it with you…along with my unnatural love for inanimate objects that go on my feet. The camera loves you, lace-up boots, it really, really does.

 

 

Beacon’s Closet Excursion

19 Jan

So, in honor of all those who got Martin Luther King Jr. Day off (you corporate-world national-holiday celebrators, you), I decided to go to Beacon’s Closet with my bestie.

I love that store for so many reasons (even if they didn’t buy any of the stuff I brought in–harumph), but mostly because the clothes rock, are one-of-a-kind and they’re super cheap! Here is a list of things I purchased:

1. Blouse (2)
2. Sweater vest
3. Tee-shirt
4. Skirts (3)
5. Dress
6. Purse

Guess how much it cost me? Just over $100 bucks. Ummm – AmAHzing (Franck Eggelhoffer played by Martin Short in Father of the Bride voice).

Here are some pics:

Here are some items close-up – How great is this stuff?!

If you have yet to shop there – do. But don’t tell too many people because I don’t want everything picked over next time I go!

Footprints in the Snow

18 Jan

Got out of a movie (The Fighter, which was really, really good) and it was snowing! Took a walk to Duane Reade and made some tracks in the snow.
