Sometimes even the most wanted items turn out to be duds.. I mean those items that we thought about and sweated over, looked for everywhere and went through some pain to acquire - just for them to then find a nice shelf in the closet and never to come out (I could mention some Giuseppe Zanotti shoes here, but I'll just let it be). And sometimes, we get something almost as an impulse, and it turns out so good that we wear it over and over and over. I have to say my best recent purchase has been the Evelyne bag. I wear it all the time and it is so comfortable, practical and of course stylish that I still stop to admire it every now and then when I get a glimpse of myself in a mirror or a window even with the risk of looking totally silly... What is your best purchase of late?
This necklace has proved to be the best purchase this spring and summer! It really is babyproof, as it has been pulled on, yanked, bitten, drooled on, and otherwise mishandled while on mommy's neck.. The apple does not fall far from the tree and all my daughters, including the 9 month old, are totally besotted by jewellery.
Vogue online picked American Icons of Fashion - and one of the ICONS was Willow Smith! Excuse me, but how old is she again? 9 or something? Am I the only one who feels that it is a bit more than slightly ridiculous to call a child a fashion icon? She is talented, I am sure, she is very cute and enjoys her time in the spotlight (hopefully), but let's get real...she's no fashion ICON. A better word might be - trendsetter?
The best firework memory I have is watching fireworks from a boat on a lake, upstate New York, at mid summer. New York City's 4th of July firework spectacular is amazing too, with massive crowds trying to get the best spot to see the show, but there was just something extra special about the little lake, the many boats full of people watching the fireworks.
On a certain mood I might be tempted to say it's the Americana mall, but seriously, the real best thing is the beaches. The good thing about living in Long Island is that the beaches are never too far away... These are pictures from the Sea Cliff Beach.
