Current Obsession: CoutureLab

A few days ago (I don't remember how) I stumbled upon an image of a gorgeous Ann Demeulemeester vest. My mouse clicked on it of its own volition, and I arrived at the CoutureLab site. Compelled by a propensity to obsess over things I don't need/can't afford, I cautiously clicked through the sparse but amazing collection of antique lace neck pieces (not plain ol' necklaces, thankyouverymuch), tulle skirts dusted with gold leaf, exotic printed gowns, and

Work Style: Floral Prints

Screenprinted tee, Urban Outfitters; skirt, Warehouse; cardigan, The Limited; boots, Century 21; feather earrings, Anthropologie; belt, vintage.

Has the impending spring season had an impact on your style?

Work Style: Take Flight

This jumpsuit was yet another goodie I dug out of the trunk of my car. I want to sew some sparkly Michael Jackson-inspired patches on this sucker so badly. Just call me Maverick! Vintage jumpsuit and clutch, army surplus belt, Giuseppe Zanotti heels, Claire's earrings. *Posts will be a little light this week since I'll be working on the magazine. Cross your fingers for me!

Wear It Now

The whole "Upper East Side housewife in the Hamptons" look has never been my thing, so I have to admit, I turned my nose up a bit at Tory Burch in the past. However, her Fall/Winter 2009 collection made me do a double take and I've seriously reconsidered accepting that marriage proposal from a wealthy New York investment banker type. Wait, what? Banks are failing and the stock market is in the dumps? Oh. Nevermind
