Monsoon Accessorize

Some colorfully fab necklaces from my favorite U.K. accessory shop 'Accessorize.'

Leap Year

'Leap Year,' the latest romantic movie set in Ireland and starring redhead Amy Adams, has received the most horrendous reviews since 'Year One.' The plot was unbearably predictable (I guessed pretty much all the lines before they were uttered) and the snail pace beginning left me bored and confused.

However the minute Leap Year arrived in Ireland, despite all the expected visual gags and turns, I couldn't help but become filled with a deep redhead longing to live upstairs in a Pub and amongst Ireland's breathtaking rustic beauty. I loved the cozy bed and breakfasts, the rocky terrains, and actor Matthew Goode's surly but brogue-ishly handsome 'Declan' was a pleasure to look at and listen to. Made me want to run around and outfit every man on the street in wooly jumpers (British speak for sweaters) and brown corduroy trousers....

Below: Guess who is Noah Mills playing in the upcoming 'Sex And The City 2' movie? :-P

Noah Mills To Play Love Interest In Sex And The City 2

Noah Mills follows the footsteps of Jon Kortajarena (in Tom Ford's 'A Single Man') and Boyd Holbrook (in 'MILK'), as he transcends from model spokesperson of fashion names such as Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors, to acting on the big screen with the role of Samantha's love interest in the upcoming Sex and The City 2 movie. Guess who his character is related to the original cast... the irritable, bitchy Charlotte's wedding planner, Anthony's brother named Nicky! Surprise surprise!

"He's a real New Yorker, a construction worker, blue-collar guy," Mills describes. "My first film experience is this role, so that was a little intimidating; they've worked together for so long." He has at least two scenes — a "speaking scene" and "a potentially more awkward scene," as Mills put it — the latter, a love scene with Kim Cattrall's Samantha.

Below: So it seemed, pricing like this of
€ 6727.50 for a tank top, is here to stay for Balmain...

No Lower Priced Line For Balmain...

A piece of good or bad news depending on which side of the 'Balmainia' are you on:-) Balmain has clarified the rumours of the new affordable diffusion line, Blue Label.

"There is no Balmain lower priced line," a spokesperson told VOGUE.COM today. "What I think you might be referring to is a capsule collection that was prepared for some Parisian retailers. Christophe Decarnin wasn't involved in that project. The brand has decided to not repeat the experience, preferring to concentrate all its efforts on the mainline."

Rejoice at the exclusivity of your Balmain investment or feel sad about the loss of opportunity to buy into a more affordable Balmain line, I think loyal fans of the brand will have a hard time deciding. One thing's for sure, astronomical pricing is here to stay.

Enjoy these lovely, free-spirited images by photographer Elizabeth Luna taken at a trash the dress session at Lake Arrowhead, California (yes it snows in SoCal). Elizabeth and a few others planned this amazing shoot that turned out to be so much more than they ever expected . . .

Lanvin Pompon PM Cabas Tote

This Cherise Red nylon and ribbon pom pom tote by Lanvin is nothing short of amazingly pretty, frilly, and flirty, and of course I am in love with the red and pink colors. My love for Lanvin's designs runs very deep, but $1,435.00 for nylon and ribbon? I know, I know, we're paying that much to look Parisian chic, and that's priceless!

I'm a redhead so these colors go with my DNA. Wondering how many out there are drawn to this combo of monochromatics. Thanks to Peri Edmonds from Melbourne who whipped up this beautiful concoction on SMP.
