Fashion or Felony

13 Sep

This is the problem with orange.  It can go from a bold fashion statement to a prison jumper with one false design move.  Are we at Lincoln center or driving past a work crew on the Jersey Turnpike?

Check out my picks for the penitentiary.

I HEART Kelly Wearstler

13 Sep

I seriously do heart Kelly Wearstler – but I think I heart her more as an interior designer than an exterior designer (i.e. fashion designer).  Granted – this is only her second ready-to-wear collection; however,  it just doesn’t add up to her amazing interior spaces.  With spaces that outstanding, it was going to be tough to compete – even with herself.

Here are a few comparisons.  I realize that it is a bit difficult to judge between two different categories – a coat vs. a couch or a blouse vs. a bar is not a typical match up – but I think you can do it, and I want to see if you agree with my assessment.   Happy Judging!

I look forward to hearing your reviews!

Nascar in China

13 Sep

Not so fast Nascar fans(pun intended).  While Formula 1 has a large audience here, the more American styles of car racing have a long way to go.  A recent event hosted by P1.cn (the chinese equivalent to Facebook except you have to be invited) proved that unlike in America, a racing event in China (with over a billion more people than the US mind you) cannot pull in 100,000+ screaming (okay…often drunk) fans and cause traffic jams for miles.  The fact the we were allowed to chill inside the flag box says a lot, but the picture of the empty stands below says it best.

We really did have such a great time though – 100,000 other fans or not.  Our friends Moya and David (who invited us) were a blast as always.  Plus, there was a VIP room with food, free drinks, and most importantly air conditioning to get a break from the Beijing heat.  And, as you will see below – we had fun playing in P1’s photo booths!
