leanimal redux

she did it again! winning with a fabulous dress. i wish the photo was better and also showed the back... beautiful.

and you can actually buy it here (if you have an Amex and the not so small matter of $650 to spare...)

korto also continues to shine. and kenley to irritate (but to put together beautiful clothes...) also of note: diane von furstenberg was such a gracious guest judge - loved her!

my diminishing credibility as "non-tv watching" person aside, i wanted to spotlight leanne- one of the designers on the current project runway season. this is the best (well, only) re-interpretation of car seat belts (car parts etc - look at that fringe - it is a former seat belt) into clothing that i've ever seen.

leanne has her own line - leanimal - and so every time she pops up on the screen - she's very innocent looking in real life - i can't help but think - confusedly - of a tigress.

anyhow, check out ana's weekly rundown of each week's looks. ana has a great eye and its always interesting to see her take on the show. as for the designers in general, i am liking leanne, korto, kenley sometimes (she can be pretty annoying). in the extremely annoying camp: blayne and suede. hoping there are more challenges like the brooke shields one and fewer with car parts in the future...

mad men

if you don't watch this show, you need to start right now.

i am not a big tv person (usually i surf the web while "watching" whatever i am "watching"), but this is one you have to really watch - all of it. there's so much cool mid century design and clothing (and not so cool but riveting behavior) to see:

it is also - evidenced by last night's episode - brilliantly put together (plot, character etc). you must see this!

wall decals aren't new but i think they are super cool...

...especially if you want to do something fun and unexpected but are just a tad nervous about 'fun and unexpected' going horribly wrong in some spendy-to-fix other medium...

fun stuff!

these are cute and sort of edgy all at once:

coin purses by ivana helsinki via bloesem.

and speaking of bloesem, the adorable booties i got nancy earlier this year from bloesem's etsy shop are super booties (according to nancy). they apparently stay on very well (in addition to being incredibly soft). nancy told me the the bloesem etsy shop will be back up soon and, therefore, more bootie buying opportunities will abound...
