the day before

So glad that I got the Sundance Channel. I discovered the series “The Day Before” and I am so enthralled. Read below:

“…documentarian Loic Prigent unveiled rare and refreshing glimpses behind the doors of some of the world’s leading fashion houses. In this four-part documentary series, Prigent chronicles the final 36 hours prior to crucial seasonal runway shows featuring creations by some of the fashion world’s leading designers.”

I caught the Sonia Rykiel episode and I am just left drooling. I want so bad to be a part of it. Even if I was the little peon who was treated worse than a maggot on shit, I would wear a smile on my face for the rest of my life!

man shops globe

So, how many of you, like me, have upgraded your tv package to include the Sundance channel just to watch this show? Man shops globe is such a great show. I sat there with my jaw gaping open at some of the pieces and places he discovered and visited. Keith Johnson has one of the best jobs I could ever imagine. He is one of the buyers for Anthropologie and is responsible for some of their beautiful displays, furnishings and art, all of which can be purchased, which I did not know. I know have to set aside a much larger budget when shopping Anthropologie!

So, you must watch this show or catch some of the episodes on the Sundance website.  I just wish it was like 2 hours longer! AND in HD!

Everybody sends e-cards now a days cause we’re all lazy and cant remember dates and shit.

I thought this company does a great job of creating all those cards for all those situations that you shouldnt be giving a card for! Love it.

the hanged man

I felt I needed to do this today and oddly it makes sense.
And to bring it full circle, I am currently reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. One of the characters happens to be Odin, or some form of him. Strange how things twist their ways into other things and we learn more about one thing from looking into another.

You are the Hanged Man

Self-sacrifice, Sacrifice, Devotion, Bound.

With the Hanged man there is often a sense of fatalism, waiting for something to happen. Or a fear of
loss from a situation, rather than gain.

The Hanged Man is perhaps the most fascinating card in the deck. It reflects the story of Odin who offered himself as a sacrifice in order to gain knowledge. Hanging from the world tree, wounded by a spear, given no bread or mead, he hung for nine days. On the last day, he saw on the ground runes that had fallen from the tree, understood their meaning, and, coming down, scooped them up for his own. All knowledge is to be found in these runes.

The Hanged Man, in similar fashion, is a card about suspension, not life or death. It signifies selflessness, sacrifice and prophecy. You make yourself vulnerable and in doing so, gain illumination. You see the world differently, with almost mystical insights.

give in

The Real Housewives of New Jersy has sucked me right in like a shop vac to a crusty m’n’m. I was hooked when i saw the second season of New York and then when they showed the previews for New Jersey it was ova’!

I finally got to watch the latest episode where Teresa gets her “bubbies” and it was hysterical. Her husband is the typical, “well you gotta go bigga’ cause dell shrink, yeah?”
I love how she comes out of it and is all groggy and wants her hubby to play nurse and then in typical Teresa style, where its all about your outfit and how you accessorize, she says, “I want ya to wear one of those little outfits for me, yeah, and da little g-string too, k, hun?” I really did laugh out loud.
I have to say Dina, Teresa and Caroline are my favorites and yes this is over the top reality TV and yes, I really do walk away from the show feeling like I have lost some brain cells while viewing.

Timesfashion has a great interview with Rachel Zoe. She answers questions from real-life twitterers.

Says Zoe about her start in fashion, “I wanted more, to be challenged. I was completely obsessed with my job and everything that relates to fashion.”
