Slim Paley photo(ish)
Over the holidays we were blessed with the company of our dear friends from Paris. Amongst many of the lovely gifts they brought us were these divine macaroons fresh from Laduree. Be still my heart. My friend snapped these two photos with my camera but I’m going to call it a ‘a team effort’, or rather ‘un effort d’equipe’ (my macaroons, my camera, my house, my rules :)) This is the very same friend who originally introduced me to my first Leica camera, So Merci J.M.!
I’m afraid it’s been a rather hectic week so my original intention to reintroduce ‘Friday Favourites’ on a timely basis (that would be on Fridays, as opposed to at some point over the weekend) has already fallen by the wayside, along with using my Clarisonic every other day and removing my mascara before bed, no matter how late it is.
Whatever. What sort of uptight Square keeps to those sort of lame resolutions anyway?
I play a much wilder game than that.
I am SOOOO not sweating the small stuff anymore in this Year of Growth, 2011…
but just for the sake of one last nod to my OLD Self, may we pretend this Chanel boot was included in my ‘Icicle post’ from last week?
Oh good. I feel so much better now.
So, for my Favouritist Things This Friday I am recommending you take the time to just watch these two short videos;
I know I’ve mentioned The Sartorialist’s website once before and mostly everyone is familiar with it, but I wanted to share this new little documentary being featured on YOUTUBE right now.
It’s cool, he’s cool and what a fricking cool idea ‘The Sartorialist’ originally was. There are so many ‘Sartorialist inspired’ sites in the blogosphere now, but in my opinion, the original remains the best.
BTW, Do you ever get dressed in the morning and think ‘But what if I run into The Sartorialist?!’ Of course seeing that he is based in NY and I live in a small town in California with a population of 9,600 , I usually feel relatively safe. The downside is the days I do make the effort (ahem, vintage tartan skirt…) I never run into him.
Perhaps I will see New York Son on there someday :)

I know those of you that follow me on Facebook and Twitter have already had the pleasure of seeing this fantastically glamourous first look at Tom Ford’s new Women’s collection VIDEO, but for those who haven’t, the link is just below. The show features some of the most amazing super models, including Lauren Hutton, Daria Werbowy, Marissa Berenson, Amber Valetta, Karen Elson (whose great music also accompanies the video) as well as Beyonce, Julianne Moore, Rita Wilson…Well, I could on and on (really Slim?? noooo!)
Just watch and enjoy and let me know what you think!
A few peaks at the show;

speaking of being hard on the eyes

OK, I couldn’t wait to hear back from you.
This new ‘ Practice Patience‘ Resolution is bull@#$% too.
I have to weigh in now and say how great is it to see so much glamour packed into just a couple of minutes and still see a fashion industry audience enjoying themselves so much, including God forbid, the models in the show??
I LOVE that!
Oh, and P.S. Here’s the machine that I was going to use every other night
If I took off my mascara…
but I’m thinking waking up looking like Norma Desmond is making a comeback, aren’t you?
paging The Sartorialist…
Wishing you a GLAMOUR FILLED WEEKEND DARLINGS!
