Ombre Hair

I kinda dig ombre hair. Maybe it's an excuse to be lazy and let my roots grow out?

Clearly, the danger in sporting this style is the desire to make it stand out even more.  Don't do this. 

I like it long, loose and flowy.

Lily Aldridge has the look I want.

Even better!

Summer Camp

It may be the end of September, but summer has finally arrived in Cali, even though it's officially autumn..  This light, infectious song transports me to the beach and all the way back to high school.

I just discovered this band Summer Camp, which  claims Heathers and John Cusack as inspirations.  This video, "Ghost Train" samples scenes from the 1969 film Last Summer.  Yes, that's a young Barbara Hershey in the vid!

A Paige of Inspiration: Go Greige

Some people may think neutral colors are bland and boring.  Negative.

Greige is the hottest color trend for fall.  It's a combination of beige and grey.  But you really can’t go wrong with neutrals in general.  From nails and clothes to interior design, it's classic and chic.  One of my favorite trends is pairing cream colored nails and heels, so cute!

 check out my blog!

Greige heels paired with sheer ankle stockings!

Essie's Pound Cake.  Love the name!

Man Cave: The Essentials

Huge couch and flat screen tv?  Check. 
Mini fridge stocked with beer?   Check. 
Arcade games and pool table?  Check.

Below is a list of Robert's other demands (that make me want one for myself).

A fully-stocked bar.

This Marantz receiver with a pair of outrageous speakers.

Banksy's Morons on the wall.

A framed photo of Dean Martin.

An Eames lounger with Cole & Son birch wallpaper.  (Okay, that was my suggestion, but Robert didn't mind!)

A Perfect Pairing

Don't you love receiving mail?  @pattyrodriguez sent me this exquisite birthday gift.  Vendetta is the perfect purple polish and Gondola is a sparkly deep red.

Halloween. True Blood Style

I saw this photo and a lightbulb went off.  I want a True Blood Halloween.

Don't these sweet silver spray-painted pumpkins in this flowery garden scream Sookie?   I love the idea of a faerie-inspired entry.  All flowers and silver and happiness and then you get to the front door.

The red awning and cheap neon sign.  The fun part. 

Once you enter the house, endless red candles.

Red flowers, but no cobwebs.  Accent the arrangements with plum and black flowers like cosmos.

True Blood is a must, but I'd also serve Merlot and Pinot Noir, as they resemble blood in the most delicious way.  Beer for the sexy Jason Stackhouses, Sam Merlottes and werewolves.  Can you imagine all the vamps, waitresses, sexy Pams, Lafayette?!  I can't stand it.

I'm dying for these cocktails from HBO's web site:

The Fangbanger - Tru Blood + Vodka
Death on the Beach - Tru Blood + Peach Schnapps + Pineapple Juice + VodkaPlasmapolitan - Tru Blood + Citron + Cointreau + Fresh Lime Juice

The Swankiest House in Hollywood

Not my words.  This is according to Elle Decor.  I have to wholeheartedly agree, since the home is after all... Casa Marques.
Click here for the slideshow, with pics of the before (scary) and afters (stunning).

Sunday Supper

Ina Garten's Perfect Roast Chicken is one of my favorite recipes.  It's really easy and I love waiting for it to cook.  It smells heavenly and makes my home feel so cozy.  I don't follow the recipe precisely, so I'll give you my version.

1 (5 to 6 pound) roasting chicken
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 large bunch rosemary, thyme, sage or a combo of all
1 lemon, halved
1 head garlic, cut in half crosswise
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, melted
1 large yellow onion, sliced thickly
4 carrots cut into 2-inch chunks
8 new potatoes (I love the combo bags of red, yellow and purple from Trader Joe's)
Olive oil


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Remove the chicken giblets. Rinse the chicken inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pin feathers and pat the outside dry. Liberally salt and pepper the inside of the chicken.

Stuff the cavity with the bunch of herbs (saving about 20 sprigs for later), both halves of lemon, and all the garlic. Brush the outside of the chicken with the butter and sprinkle again with salt and pepper.

Tie the legs together with kitchen string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the chicken.

Chop the onion, carrots and potatoes into thick chunks.  (Refer to photo.)  Place the onions, carrots, and potatoes in a roasting pan. Toss with salt, pepper, 20 sprigs of the herbs, and just enough olive oil that the ingredients are covered so they don't burn. Spread around the bottom of the roasting pan and place the chicken on top.

Roast the chicken for 1 1/2 hours, or until the juices run clear when you cut between a leg and thigh. Remove the chicken and vegetables to a platter and cover with aluminum foil for about 20 minutes. Slice the chicken onto a platter and serve it with the vegetables.

Hidden Agenda

Yesterday I arrived to a big meeting exactly one week early.  I walked out with my face flushed and checked my phone.  I had moved the date with an accidental swipe of the touchscreen. 

Some things are better done old school style. 

Do you know how expensive agendas and calendars can be?  Coach had beautiful ones for $150.  Papyrus had hideous ones for $35.  I found this Hermes-inspired calendar at Soolip, half off.

Can you believe it was $4.25?  2011 calendars arrive in November.

A Paige of Inspiration: Falsies

Fake eyelashes are so much fun and can make a big impact on your look!  I love wearing them when I get dressed up and I promise they are not hard to put on! :] They have big dramatic lashes and simple ones you can wear everyday. Suzanne introduced me to them and now I’m a big fan! Love them!!!

Creepy Cupcakes

Ok, so you're eating the skeleton's skull... or his brains?!  The bigger question... is this too soon?  Well get ready, because I love the holidays.

A friend sent me this kit and I couldn't resist making them immediately.  They're adorable - particularly the sushi and cheeseburger ones.  You can buy them here: Cupcake Cuties.

Second to Noni

I just discovered Larchmont Village!  Once you get there, you must visit Noni Boutique.  The store features Alice and Olivia, Anna Sui, J.Brand, Black Halo and House of Harlow.

Check out the sale racks.  I scored a gorgeous Jay Godfrey dress for a song.  While you're there, say hello to owner Elaine Lewis.  She's easygoing, sweet and a fellow Virgo.

I need this Halston Heritage belt.  The earrings too.

Noni features works by local artists on her walls and hosts receptions so shoppers can meet them and get inspired. Go!

(take Beverly or 3rd Street toward Hancock Park)

Birthday Bliss

Me at 3am.   I was leaving my birthday party at The London just as The Biebs was entering.  Apparently we have the same bedtime.

Miu Miu heels, BCBG dress (seen here!), purse from Kitson, Lois Hill silver bangles.

I had a blast on my birthday!  Check out the most incredible post on my party by the chic and hilarious Korean Yenta here!

A Paige of Inspiration: Pencil Skirts

In the 1940’s Christian Dior introduced the pencil skirt. I think every girl should have one in their closet!  There are so many different uses. You can dress them up or down.  I love wearing a pencil skirt to my performances and out with my girlfriends.  It's one of my favorite pieces of clothing.
