Give your fingers a gift

Cocktail rings are gaining more and more exposure as the new accessory. They are a great way to show your own personal style as there are so many different kinds to choose from.

A few favorites are the YSL ones (Yours truly wearing the gold-dipped)
below are the other styles available from YSL.

Prices range from $150-575, buy at

(above left Patricia von Musulin $1500, right, VBH $68,000)

You can always wear more than one for an extra eclectic look via Mary-Kate

Roberto Cavalli (shop at

Prices unknown. Check with stockist

The best places to browse for unique rings for a bargain are the flee markets held in the big cities (Paris has a great one, as well as the Fairfax Flee Market in LA), but of course if you can afford it, buy big, bold and encrusted!


Hmmm Last season Rick Owens seemed to be the golden boy from LA, and now I'm not so sure anymore...

Here is his dizzying collection for the spring. The collection at least has a point of view, and not all of the pieces are just conceptual.

And We're back

It was a short break, but promise to update more frequently from here on out. Also, now officially based in London, and with a new city, lots of fashion news to share!


Sex, Lies, and Mr. Margiela

Hot hot hot! Talk about eyes wide shut. Peek-a-boo sexy over in Paris gave us all a thrill, a great contrast to the granny prints we are seeing for the Spring. What do you think? Innovative, or just unwearable? Thanks Josef for turning me on to this amazing under-the-radar designer.

All images are from Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2008

Just a thought

People who do well, work hard, and make money get to spend heaps of time here:

Liberty of London
222 Regent St
London W1B

If I could, I would.

Fall '07 Bags: Still Slithering

So, we are getting back to the times where a simple Gucci logo bag is not enough in status-land. The bags must be bigger, more expensive, and most importantly, made from a poor reptile carcass. Makes perfect sense, right? I cant deny loving them either.

YSL $26,995.00

Prada $2,620.00

Jimmy Choo $14,000.00

Nancy Gonzalez $2,550.00

Bottega Veneta $22,680.00

All priced to buy at Neiman Marcus

Marios Schwab

Following in Alia's body con footsteps, Marios Schwab is a modern-day sculptor, making women's bodies look like that of a Greek goddess. Don't believe me? Each one of his immaculate pieces are crafted with sewn-in girdles designed to amplify certain body parts, and hide the ugly bits.
