James Victore has a new book. (in September, that is) buy it. One of my favorite designers, if not the favorite. So hard to choose, so many, so little time. I was fortunate enough to meet him, hear him speak and see him wander the halls when I attended The Portfolio Center. At the time he was doing some great work for the school. I don't want to sit here and describe his work because you should form your own opinion. I like it.

“The bag is one of the most universal and oldest objects invented by man. What began as a prosaic item of everyday use is now a luxury good that can confer status in an instant. Whether it’s a bag for kings or vagabonds, shamans or celebrities, nomads or professionals, griots or fashionable women, for workaday use or formal events, people around the world use them to carry their most important belongings: from seeds for the humble farmer, to money for the self-made mogul to personal items such as lipstick and a compact.”
– excerpt from an amazing book, Carried Away by Hélène David-Weill and Jean-Louis Dumas, Vendome Press and Hermès.
You can learn so much about a person by what someone carries in their bag. Whether it is a secret or a necessity, I hope to be a part of that for girls and women for years to come.

"Frenemy" (alternately spelled "frienemy") is a portmanteau of "friend" and "enemy" which can refer to either an enemy disguised as a friend or to a partner who is simultaneously a competitor and rival. The term is used to describe personal, geopolitical, and commercial relationships both among individuals and groups or institutions. The word has appeared in print as early as 1953.
A "cupcake" (the common US, Canadian, South African and Australian term) or fairy cake (the common British and Irish term), is a small cake designed to serve one person, frequently baked in a small, thin paper or aluminum cup. As with larger cakes, frosting and other cake decorations, such as sprinkles, are common on cupcakes.
mmm... and this is why, this is why, this is why..... cupcakes are my frenemies.
These cupcakes are just delightful. Just one of my valentines treats. Thanks baby! So, So yummy. This is my closest cupcake shop. Yes, I said closest. They are so gorgeous. It inspires me to make my cupcakes even better. I can always dream can't I?
and did I mention it was Red Velvet. double delish.

I have admired Vivienne Westwood for a very long time. Shall I just say since I had a purple mohawk and purple plaid pants to match the mohawk. The mohawk is gone but my adoration still lives on for punk and all its goodness. Vivienne brought punk and new wave fashion into the main stream. I am always excited when she does a modern day punk collaboration with the right folks. So……wait for it…. Vivienne Westwood wallpaper! Yes, you can coat your walls with the best punk plaid (uh, die, die, die for) or modern designs ever from her fashion collections. Delve into the designs of a post punk hero! Available at Cole & Son.
