Such an eventful November so far lets start with the 1st. My sweetheart Paulo took me to the YSL exhibit at the De Young Museum for my birthday. The lecture included Vogue's Hamish Bowles, Florence Müller and Farid Chenoune. Each gave a lecture on different stages of Yves Saint Laurent work. There is so much about him that I didn't know. I regrettably missed the introduction by John Buchanan and Pierre Bergé. It was pouring rain with no parking in sight! I was excited to hear that a book signing was to take place. My lovely purchased the book for me and off I went to meet these fabulous people. The book signing was populated by the likes of Tatiana Sorokko, Betty Catroux and Dodie Rosenkrans. It was an incredible honor to meet the three speakers and attain their autograph. The exhibition was fantastic! I never new how varied and groundbreaking Yves Saint Laurent was. These clothes truly belong in a museum. They are such masterful works. This was by far the most memorable birthday gift. Thank you so much Paulo, I love you!

Alice Dellal, Model/Socialite
This wild child has been a absolute treat to watch. I know her normal attire of leather jacket, bandage dress and Doc's is reminiscent of my teens. But I can help to love her. She does the early 90's so well with European influence. That cascading tumble of blond curls with a half shaved head is genius and only works on her. She is like Neil Gaiman's delirium come to life, most certainly one to watch.
Taylor Tomasi, Senior market Editor teen Vogue
I first saw her sporting a Elizabeth and James blazer with slashes of Ann Demeulemeester skirt and black Phi boots. Her use of black with white soft accents evokes a refreshing sense of style that has me hooked.
Kate Lanphear,Style Director, US Elle
Her evocative use of neutrals sends a chill down my spine. I was floored when I first saw the famous Garance Doré photo. She looks hypnotically alluring, it was love at first site! She is my absolute favorite of the moment.
Anna dello Russo, creative director of Vogue Nippon
She was introduced to me by the multiple postings on The Sartorialist. I was first in awe of her astounding physique in mile high stilettos. Then I saw this dynamic editorial which she modeled and styled. I was hooked! She is a muse and a style icon, and someone I would aspire to be in the future.
Daphne Guinness, Heiress
To tell you the truth I had no idea who Daphne Guinness was until one night I was doing a ebay search on Alexander Mcqueen. I came across all these auctions stating her name. After looking at these incredible listings I soon indulged in some research. Daphne Guinness is indeed a rare fantastical creature. I was quickly enamored by her fearless sense of style. If you can afford to wear couture then by all mean take notes from her. She could easily be a character in some epic space opera like Blade Runner. I'm so delighted there is a Daphne Guinness in this world.

Finally a wardrobe photo! I absolutely detest the hot weather so it took until now to breakout the tripod. I can't promise an outfit a day but maybe a couple a week. I was super excited to find this 15 button suspender jumper today.

A unexpected treat arrived via mail today. Imagine my surprise as this luxurious jar fell before my eyes. My brilliant best friend sent me this gift from his salon. It is "Ageless Creme Luxe Hair Treatment" by Frederic Fekkai. It contains Rare Orchid extract and Regenerating protein's to turn my lifeless creature like hair new again. I literally cannot wait to wash my hair tonight. I love you Michael Rhyan!

My friend was buying some products at the Chanel counter last weekend and I found myself with time to kill. So I headed over to the nail polish and tried out the new FACETTES D’OR Nail Colour in Gold Fiction. I'm super picky about metallic polish but this one was superb. So after a long day of ebay auctions, I felt bratty and entitled to a treat. At 30.00 a bottle it definitely is a indulgence. But we all deserve some spoiling right? Well I guess I'm pretty spoiled cause I grabbed Kaleidoscope too.

Every summer has its epic sound. That album or song that you will forever link to that time. A few years ago while living in the Los Feliz/Silverlake area it was Mylo/Angie Reed/ Moving units. This year the sound didn't set in until late summer. I had both
The favorite of the moment is Cut Copy “In Ghost Colours” . We just can't get enough of "Lights and Music".
Secondary is The Presets “Apocalypso” their album was in the jukebox at Akbar. We kept playing "This Boy's in Love" as we sipped on our cocktails.

We then headed to our favorite store ever, Maxfield LA in West Hollywood. Were we saw a certain Hollywood boyfriend buying a Chanel bike for his someone special. My favorite pieces were the huge vintage Hermès bags and a Black Thomas Wylde fringed bag to die for! The displays in Maxfield are so fun to look at. Our fave were these stuffed exotic birds.I couldn't leave without checking out the Alexander Mcqueen store. The metal anatomical sculpture sticking out of the roof is amazing!Our night was just as fun. We headed over to the Standard, in downtown, for drinks, and Akbar in silver lake (our old neighborhood bar were we kidnapped and befriended the most fantastic person.)Later, our new friend took us to "A CLUB CALLED RHONDA ", where we danced away to the raddest disco.

It's that time of the year again. I plop myself in front of a stack of giant fall issues for a look ahead. It is getting sort of repetitive with tons of blogs posting editorials and ads months in advance. I was still surprisingly satisfied with Elle's Fall issue. There was tons of Art/Illustration articles that are so fun to read through. I still get giddy for fall/winter fashion even after pouring through years of fall issues. So I thought it would be fun to look back at Vogue's Fall 93 issue. It was a time not so different in aesthetic from our own. Dark moody florals, Velvets, 30's inspiration, thigh high boots, militant looks all haunted the pages of Vogue. Let us be inspired......
