This makes me so happy...

This is the best thing I've seen on The Selby...maybe ever. I really want to go to London and go to this bar!

Cheap Thrills

Happy Monday!

I'm still sort of in a food coma from the most gyro sandwich I've ever had. Sure we had to drive to Northridge to get it, but it was honestly up there for the most delicious thing I've ever tasted in a pita, and also the size of two regular gyros. From this carb and lamb induced stupor I rise to give you two things that amused me this weekend...

Firstly, an amazing display of photography at the Getty by Jo Ann Callis

And secondly the winner of the Hemingway look-alike contest...

What more do you need, I ask you?

trend: cut-out wedges

I just got the new Urban Outfitters Catalog in the mail and I like that they featured more shoes and accessories. Fitting that the focus isn't on the clothes since the cover model isn't even wearing any... anyway. I love all the cut-out wedges!
Dolce Vita

Jefferey Campbell (i am especially covetous of these)

Deena & Ozzy
These are very much a trend for this summer, but will also look cute in the fall with colored tights peeking through!

I was glancing through a rather nice book entitled The Upset: young contemporary art, when i fell totally in love with this image by British artist Ray Caesar. I sort of feel like I'm floating there with her... delicious.

Favorite Couture Looks

Here are some of my favorite looks from the Fall 2009 Couture shows in Paris last week which are up now on Style.com .

It went from elegant construction...

to unabashed badassness at Givenchy

Dior revisited the New Look with marvelous results

I'm really drawn to the detailing of this coat
and it's so cool to see more emphasis on the waist
like on this dress at Christian Lacroix

I'm completely in love with the light, romantic feel at Valentino

And then there's Chanel... I was in raptures over this look.
In my book this is perfection. However

Karl Lagerfeld also managed to produce this little number
which actually sent a little chill of horror down my spine

I just... yeah... If you can find any redeeming qualities about this dress (other than the model, I love Magdalena!) I'd love to hear about it. I really can't wrap my little brain around this one! In fact thinking about it is making me tired. I think I'll go to bed. adieu!!
