.why don't you.....buck conventional gift wrap?.

belated christmas presents deserve a little more tlc...and that for me comes in the form of magazine editorial pages reused as gift wrap.

who doesn't want a present wrapped with pool-side furried monsters?

.michelle lamy is 1,600 years old.

a remarkably interesting woman, wife and muse to designer rick owens. her interview and resume is incredible...and inspiring.

'As a friend and longtime employee at her Hollywood hotspot Les Deux Caf├ęs, I have, at various times over the last decade, heard and perpetuated a zillion fantastic tales about Lamy: She's Algerian, a gypsy; she was born in a resistance camp in occupied France, was raised by wolves in the Ardennes; she's an arms dealer, a vampire, a witch, and she's 1600 years old (the number is consistent, as if it were exact, vetted by a team of experts).'

.louboutin's nude commune.

christian louboutin's newly released nude shoe collection is incredibly chic and smart. the principle we apply as women to lipstick, blush, foundations and pantyhose has finally been applied to heels.'s so fun to be a girl.

.net-a-porter's talk with the row.

“We saw a space in the market,” says Ashley. “We knew there wasn’t another brand offering basics in a luxurious and contemporary way. If I wear certain designer brands, or too much of something, I look crazy, and I need something to break it up. If you are wearing a Chanel jacket and you need an anonymous piece that will show just how special that jacket is, I hope that is what The Row gives you.” - ashley olsen, excerpt from net-a-porter's web magazine, the edit.

clearly mary kate and ashley have succeeded above these aspirations. their spring collection is a testament to how talented this duo is.

.burberry prorsum, spring 2014.

burberry roughened up the delicate lady look this collection and i absolutely love the outcome. there were several masculine undertones in these pieces which balanced out the soft pastel palette (ie. sheer men's shirts, the oversized trenches, buttoned up cardigans).

being a minimalist by nature it was exciting to see a collection that blended girly and minimal so beautifully.
