Behold: "Shiny Ponies". J.Crew takes us on an adorable little journey behind where/how their shoes are made... and how much the right shoe can change the way you feel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EKTx5on6U8&feature=youtu.be
She's ready to move to Portland and catch a Grizzly Bear show. You need not ask if she owns a backpack; the answer is clear.
Shea, however, is none too thrilled. He's tired of Pearl raiding his wardrobe. He's over her style-copping ways.
There was a teacher at my junior high school named Mr. Manzi. He wore his pants so high that they buckled right under his manboobs. Don't get me wrong, he was a great teacher, but the pants... ohhhhh, those pants. Sorry, Mr. Manzi. Love you, man.
Monday, he turned 40. Yesterday, GQ anointed him as the World's Worst-Dressed Man.
Here's the nitty-gritty from GQ:
"He's flaunted nipples through mesh shirts. He's worn skirts about as frequently as pants. He's rocked a mullet. He is the Worst-Dressed Man in the World. Look, it's not that Jared Leto, the actor and 30 Seconds to Mars frontman, doesn't try. He tries too damn hard. Don't get us twisted, Jared, we like you, we think you're good at one of your day jobs. But consider this philosophy from legendary dandy Beau Brummell: 'A gentleman should never be noticed for the singularity of his dress.' What we think he means is, try not to look like a dick."
Rock on, Jared.
Saturday night was quite fun. We attended a Mad Men-themed birthday party for Luis Demetrio Nolasco at Hotel Andaluz. A fine time was had by all.
I could be wrong, but I think there's a strong chance that you might absolutely love my vintage ensemble by Mr. Blackwell. The collar, cuffs and hem on the dress match the cape. Thanks to Kamille Crowley for the amazing frock.
And, yes, I got a new 'do, courtesy of the very talented Kelli Williams. That's part two of the second green hair post. The vinegar/lemon worked fairly well, but not well enough. Yes, I could've tried other things, but it was time for a change. I was more than ready, dahling.
Behold: the Alex stiletto by Christian Louboutin. Price: $4,995.
Complete with hairy toes, jeweled toenails and glittery heels, fashionistas are predicting these shoes will soon be all the rage.
I say hell no.
Rizzoli have published a new Christian Louboutin book, which chronicles his life and shoes. Complete with a fabulous pop-up, gorgeous fold-out cover and striking photos of shoes galore, the book shares a wealth of info about the iconic designer.
Lots of fab things happening today, dahling. 1. First, mi amiga, Kimberly, and I are getting our palms read. Cue creepy music! Ooooweeeoooo!
2. Next, we fetch mah huzzbun, then we're off to the grand opening bash at new downtown men's clothier, Dressed to Kill.
3. Then it's over to Nob Hill for the Bollywood Bash Grand Opening at Sukhmani Nob Hill.
Actually, that's probably not our last stop. Might need a little nightcap before heading home. It's is Saturday night, after all.
Hope your Saturday is fabulous!
That's what American historian Hal Vaughan contends in his new book, Sleeping with the Enemy: Coco Chanel's Secret Wars. Click here to read more about Vaughan's claims about Chanel. Pretty juicy stuff!
The House of Chanel, however, says the story is totally bogus.
Wonder who's telling the truth?
A judge denied Christian Louboutin's request for a preliminary injunction against Yves Saint Laurent for alleged trademark infringement on red-soled shoes. This is not only a victory for YSL, but also opens the red sole floodgates for other shoe manufacturers, as as well.
Sigh. So long, coveted red soles. Soon, we'll be able to buy hideous, red-soled shoe atrocities at Payless.
Ever wish you could be privy to some of the ridiculous and totally shallow conversations at Conde Nast, the superpower of magazine publishers, and home to Vogue magazine?
Somebody is eavesdropping in the Conde Nast elevator and posting the overheard comments on Twitter... and it's faaaabulous.
You must check out the Twitter feed for Conde Elevator, which has amassed over 13,000 followers in just three days.

Grab your little slice of zig-zag heaven while you can. It all disappears October 22.
There's a new fashion documentary out. Cheers of joy! You know how much I adore docs, dahling. The Tents chronicles the evolution of New York Fashion Week from it's meager beginnings to the current extravaganza known as Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Feast on nterviews with designers like Donna Karan, Zac Posen, Betsey Johnson, Richie Rich and Carolina Herrera.
