Cantankerous Cats in Costume

While dogs are good sports and let you do basically anything to them, cats aren't afraid to let you know when you're ticking them off. And I love them for that. Enjoy.

Girls Night Out

Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends. - Cindy Lew

The camera was rolling as a few of my girlfriends & I hit the town the other night for a jewelry line debut... Nicole Ritchie pairing her House of Harlow line with Bebe. Wish I had known about the line before! I bought one of her necklaces at Fred Segal the other day & it's probably double the price of Bebe! (I'm wearing it in the video.)

While it's fun buying shiny pretty things, the best part was getting together and being silly. You get to be a fly on the wall during our nonsense. I love my girls!

Below is the necklace I was wearing. I believe it was $65. While the quality is better than the necklaces at Bebe, they look the same from afar. The black & gold version is about $120 at Fred Segal, $69 at Bebe.

Oh Baby!

I'm hosting a baby shower for my sister-in-law, Lindsey. She is very excited to be having a boy. I love to plan parties so this is a perfect combo! I'm hosting a luncheon for her in January and want to pick a fun invite... which is your favorite?

Mad About You

I could watch Mad Men on mute & play some Dean Martin instead & be just as happy, because the show is so visually stunning. The 60's styling of Mad Men is all done by Janie Bryant, including the gorgeous dresses. But Don Draper in his suit... wow. It almost makes you forget he cheats on his wife, bullies Peggy and fired a gay staffer for not putting out with a client.

So now, you too can work a suit like Don - for a price. Tonight is the season finale, and the show has partnered with Brooks Brothers to create a limited edition Mad Men suit. There are only 250 available and they retail for $998. (A bit steep in this economy, and a bit pricey even for Brooks Brothers!)

Made from gray sharkskin fabric, the suit is about the slimmest cut they make, featuring a two-button jacket with narrow lapels, diagonal pockets and side vents.

Apparently these went up for sale a few weeks ago, and today is the last day you can buy one at:

A pairing for my Halloween style giveaway...

Tricky Treats

On Halloween night I attended Andrew Brandou's solo show at Corey Helford Gallery titled "In the Garden of the Mystic". Some works featured beautiful psychadelic flowers that formed cloud-like rabbits and skulls.

Others showcased innocent little bunnies that looked like they hopped straight out of Little Golden Books and into nightmares.

Since this was Halloween, I received a special treat that I'm giving away to a lucky soul. This poster "Pumpkin Carver" features a delightfully devilish little rabbit who is really enjoying carving jack o' lanterns.

You can enter the giveaway on twitter, so click here for more deets.
(Poster is approx. 12 x 24 inches, knives not included)

True Blood Halloween: Hunting with Bill & Lorena

 The bleeds are not becoming.

I need to do something about this.

I'm heading out with my precious Bill.

He looks famished.  And delicious.

I'm craving something spicy.  Maybe this Chilean treat? 

A little too happy.  I need a challenge.

We ran into Jessica.  Bill sure was happy to see her.  He sent her home.

Well, look what the cat dragged in. Sookie Stackhouse.

Seems Talbot beat me to it.  Why is Eric hiding behind a mask?

Easy Bill Compton.  No need to get protective of your pathetic human.

I'm your maker.  I have a few centuries on you.

Do it!

I love you Bill Compton.
