Loving Lanvin

All this deliciousness located here
Did I mention how much I am loving Lanvin's Spring 2010 collection? Alber Elbaz created a gorgeous fantasy of elaborate ruffles and draping that was positively breathtaking. The '60s updo's were to-die-for, and most of the looks seemed to be any-age-appropriate. And that salmon-colored material? Luscious. Sigh. I think I'm going to sell my soul soon to wear any of the dresses for just one day.

The Life & Times of the Fabulous Beales

from here
Just barely got around to finally watching HBO's version of Grey Gardens. I had no idea what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. Who knew that such a prominent family could lead a secret life of such...shall we say, hoarding? Truly tragic, yet still beautiful. The 2 Edies managed to transcend the decades with oblivious grace. I'll give it a solid B+.

From My (Simple) Diary

Sigh. Have you ever noticed that when something or someone leaves you flustered, you tend to just be a ball of nerves throughout the day? I'm having one of those days...I need a vacation! To calm myself before writing yet another class paper, I skimmed through my diary and laughed to myself when I read one of the excerpts. The "question" was:
Somehow, people don't return...
A. sweaters
B. from dangerous excursions
C. feelings
D. a wallet with cash
E. favors
F. to a bad restaurant
G. when fired
H. a bouquet of flowers
I. to idiots

I went with D, E, F, G and I. Who, in their right mind, would return to an idiot? Not I! Which options would you choose?

Great beard of Zeus!!! I'm not even lying when I say I think my heart just stopped momentarily... How delectable is Robert Pattinson in this pic? I think I just might have to see that new movie of his; I don't even care what it's about! Yummmm!

Will You Be My Valentine?

Our fabulous Valentine's Day last year
Hello, all! Indeed, Valentine's Day is coming up rather quickly, and disgustingly enough, I'm getting all warm and fuzzy inside! Roehl and I are going to our favorite sushi restaurant, followed by a surprise (for me!) He just told me to pack my bags and I didn't question it! Hope everyone's Valentine's is filled with endless kisses, roses, champagne and of course, LOVE! :)

Ummm...Rihanna's new Rude Boy video is pretty badass, by the way.

The Forever Reigning McQueen

One of McQueen's inspiring designs for Spring 2010

Today, the fashion world lost one of its most talented and beloved designers, Alexander McQueen, according to media reports. McQueen apparently took his own life after the recent passing of his mother. This is truly shocking and saddening, to say the least. I remember just recently being absolutely amazed and inspired by his Spring 2010 collection. One of fashion's brightest stars has fallen, but will never be forgotten.
