Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows

Not only do I love looking at the works of fashion art in shop windows in New York City, but I also love photographing them because inevitably the reflections on the glass capture more than just fashion. They capture the city and its buildings, people, and unstoppable energy...

RedPoppy's Room

After staring for a long while at the white walls in my room, imagining what they would look like with swirls of paint or a different color which would inspire framed posters and perfume bottles, I've had my room painted turquoise! I really really love the shade (it's a more intense color in real life than on the computer screen), it sets off all the other colors in the room so well, and when I wake up to a burst of mediterranean sea I can't help but feel inspired for the day ahead. Some snapshots:

My Tim Gunn talking bobble head (bday gift from my sis) Doesn't he look dapper against turquoise?

Winter Coats: Puffy & Quilted

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, and may all your turkeys turn out crispy. So I spent some time yesterday watching excited gaggles of ice skaters whizzing around NYC's Rockefeller Center Ice Skating rink, and I couldn't help but notice the many different styles of deliciously quilted puffer coats worn by natives and tourists alike. In case you haven't noticed yet puffy down coats are all the rage this season, and since there are so many to choose from I've done a bit of research and found some stunners which have caught my eye and which I must have!! Priced from high to affordably high-med (because that's what pretty coats cost these days), let's all pray together that these coats miraculously go on sale this crazy mad rush Black friday, and perhaps I'll see you at the shops....

Valentino 360 Silver Metallic Bag

And wouldn't you know it, I've finally tracked down the other infamous sparkly Valentino bag from Gossip Girl!!!
On Gossip Girl's Season3 Episode 7 "How to Succeed in Bassness" back in October, Jenny Humphrey attends Chuck Bass' new Club opening wearing some amazing flapper-esque clothes and toting a gorgeous silver sequined Valentino 360 bag, the same one in black which Blair ogles in the following episode "The Grandfather: Part II". The hard to find bag is perched oh so very prettily in Saks 5th Ave's Holiday fashion window display. Warning: Do not break glass!!
