Celebrity Closets, Oh My!

I love closets. I liked playing in my mom’s closet and my grandmother’s closet when I was little. I used to imagine that I was in a whole world all my own, hide amongst the clothes and then eventually play dress up with whatever I felt like. If either of the closets I played in as a kid looked ANYTHING like the following closets, I’m sure I would never have stopped playing in them. These things really ARE their own worlds and dress up heaven for big people! They are huge, colorful, beautiful, magical… Of course, most of them are womens closets. I guess guys closets are just too boring?? I’d get lost in any of them. : )

 Nate Berkus. I like the mirror at the end, it makes the space look bigger.

Nicky Hilton. I LOVE the wood floors.

Anna Sui. A lovely, organized mess. She uses Polaroids on her shoe boxes so she knows what’s what.

Mariah Carey. Oh my goodness! And she has more shoes in storage.

Brian Atwood. The clothes are out of sight but not out of mind.

Loree Rodkin. Yep. I would have hidden in the wall of jackets and blouses!

Nanette Lepore. Just amazing. 

Christina Aguilera. This closet is just for shoes; she has another one for clothes. One of my faves. I love the pink shelves, the red curtain and chandelier, the leopard carpet!

Olivia Wilde. This one is so beautiful. The vanity is gorgeous, the rug is perfect and I love all the natural light coming in.

Hey Ladies….

These Boots Were Made For Walkin’

I’ve been on the search for a tall flat boot practically since I came to be. The day after I started walking was when I started looking for that boot. Needless to say, it’s been a long, tough road. This year, I am determined to find that perfect pair.

I like the distressing on these Vintage Tall Roadster Boots from J. Crew, but I wish it had a couple more buckles to make things interesting.

The Thebna Boot from Nine West has the details I desire, but I’m not sure I’m sold on the color.

I absolutely LOVE this boot from Chloe. Refined gold buckle, great leather, cool heel, but $1,100?! I’d prefer to stay married, thankyouverymuch.

Another classic boot, this time the Isabelline Riding Boot by Ralph Lauren, but it’s a bit too classic for my taste. Oh, and it’s close to $1000, too. Let’s see… Boots or food for two months?

These Jenny Boots from Piperlime are a close competitor. I like the style and the buckles and the color, but I wish they were more distressed.

I think I found a winner! They Cranberry Bog Boots from Anthropologie are nicely worn in (but not worn out). The color is nice and neutral but interesting. The toggle makes for a cool detail. They’d look fantastic with jeans. And the price? I won’t be buying them for myself, but maybe I’ll put them on my Christmas list. And if I don’t get them, I know what I’ll be writing about next year!

A Touch of Goth

I figure anytime a new Twilight trailer comes out, people will embrace their inner vampire and goth it up a bit. I’m liking the loads of black lace in fashion and design right now. It’s just enough to make Edward Cullen do a double-take…

…Especially if you were sporting Stella McCartney like Liv Tyler at the Time 100 or Kate Bosworth at the Met Ball!
Now, that’s what one would call “Sex on Legs”. Lace Stilettos by Coppelia Pique.
Goth for beginners: Free People “Lacey Insert Blouse”, $98 at 80’s Purple.

Throw a midnight party with this as the centerpiece. Come Rain, Come Shine Chandelier in Black by Tord Boontje.

Chanel always nails the look… even for Spring.

Add a dash of goth to your packages with Lace Tape in black, $10 at Matter.


Well, the weather is officially getting warm, which means only one thing: It’s time to break out the flip-flops! To be honest, I pretty much wear them year-round. It doesn’t get very cold here and they’re oh-so-comfy. The only difference is that now, people don’t tell me I’m going to get frostbite. 
In hot climates, flip-flops are the go-to shoe. You need them for day, night, weekend, casual, dressy, you name it. I absolutely live in them! I’ve been scouting out new pairs to add to my collection…

Here are my top picks, some realistic, some only in my dreams!
Row One: Loeffler Randall “Sydney” in Dark Navy, $450 at Barney’s Co-op; Tory Burch “Logo Flat Thong” in Hibiscus Pink, $195 at Neiman Marcus; Bandolino “Claribell” in Dark Green, $59.
Row Two: Por la Victoire “Ella” in Rose, $215 at Piperlime; J. Crew “Dauphine” in Neon Yellow, $88; Old Navy “Beaded Thong Sandals” in Multi, $14.50.
