    Regal Russian Dame strides by on Melrose Place as I have my Sunday Cappuccino outside, at newly opened Alfred Coffee Shop.                   Winter Luxury in Los Angeles, as my life unfolds into a sweet journee….                    listening to the fluttering voices of high pitched Asian girls comparing their spin classes                                                 and complaining [...]

    Vogue announces the coming of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art which celebrates the two decades between 1860 and 1880 . The French bourgeoisie of the late 19th century are muses to me.  I love how disciplined they were in their snobbery and perfection with their attire.  They seemed to be bound by [...]

    My baby and I are a part of the Beauty in Produce Club.  We are the only two members, though surely others would want to join if we invited them.  We called it; Produce Lovers Anonymous. It was the first thing we spoke about when we met online; his subject heading to me. Suppose I [...]

    Why is there still a debate over more or less eggs making brownies//cake more chewy or cake-like?  Can not we figure this out universally?   And can’t I remember the answer to this basic question?  I feel like that dork who keeps looking up a common word I always confuse. For the record: more eggs [...]

    Enjoying this beautiful image of Paris in the 1950′s.  This is what inspires me to bring back this frivolity and femininity in fashion… Yann Le Mouel. Mannequin a la Tour Eiffel, 1958, by Christian Lemaire.

    There’s one thing I don’t get and it’s Chanel No 5.   I get the lure of Chanel and that of the lovely Marilyn Monrose…..but not that horrible scent.  After the impulse buyers and marketing suckers…like me…are there really any repeat customers?     And IF there are, is anyone asking their husbands what they [...]

    Is it nostalgia or just sweet single-ton horny-ness?  Either way, I have been listening to Madonna’s “Erotica” around the clock.  I still have the cassette tape single of it from 1992; album and instrumental versions.  The sound is slightly slowed down and warped…but it’s no turn off for this randy girl… I just keep bouncing [...]

      Brainstorming on capturing memories on film of a beloved man.  Going to visit my Grandfather Milton with my camera and tripod next month.  He is the symbol of the tailcoats of a generation fading into the history books of time.  There is an element of feeling like my attempts are too little too late, [...]

              All we have to do now is take these lies….and make them true somehow…. All we have to see…. is that i don’t belong to you and you don’t belong to me. Freedom…you gotta give a what you take       but I still may dance again like the [...]

      I am bubbling up with all of the love inside of me.  Oh how blessed my future man will be.  I have so much love to share.  It is funny how they say how you will not desire being with someone as much, once you have filled your own cup up en.  Well, I [...]

    From a carnivorous feast at Tar and Roses on Thursday with a nice new/old surprise Mystery Man, to a meet up with a feisty older German diva, and a grill under the Blue Moon, my weekend has been filled with so much of the unexpected.   Tar and Roses was a delicious and unexpected surprise.  We [...]

        Gazing upon the perfectly taught, hard, bulbous loins of Herb Ritts’s nudes at the Getty exhibit this past week,   I could not help but notice the influence of the work of Leni Riefenstahl.       (photo by Herb Ritts) (photo by Leni Riefenstahl)        (photo by Leni Riefenstahl – Olympic German Girls) [...]

    The Universe only wants us to have Love and Pleasure in every shape, color, flavor, and, texture. No, you do not need to eat a smaller slice…no calories included!  I am learning and absorbing this reality more and more as I process it in its practice and absolute truth.  We are making it all up.

    Gentillhommes, then and now… As a woman, more than anything else, I love the feeling of being taken care of, where my expectations and needs melt away to the bliss of being met.  Like a man who knows how chilled you like your champagne, ain’t nothing like it.  Peel me a grape sweetie!  But it [...]

      It’s always fun the week after you’ve been sick for what seems like an eternity, to jump out into the world again…get dressed up and feel great again.  It’s like coming home after a great trip, inspired about all the things you want to do…or L.A. after the rain.  So I’ve been out and [...]

    Valentino_couture_show_de_camille

    Classic Couture; exquisite lace and a return to  Old World Couture, updated in breathtaking results.  From the braiding, to the delicate metallic lace.  I am not exactly sure, however why anyone would call this collection young, from the below clip.  I would wear it, but I dress classically….certainly not young…elegant, classique and mature, more like [...]

    I see how French Fashion inspires todays fashion in multiple ways.  On a very personal level, I was inspired by Paris and by the corsets of the Moulin Rouge period.  As a painter, and costumer/designer I was always drawn to the works of Toulouse Lautrec and drew from him as well as from a very [...]
