Yesterday Today and Tomorrow

Last week saw exciting new tech-y prototypes come in; shipping Spring deliveries; prepping crafts for belts and wrist wraps for the Crafting Community weekend in Palm Springs which just passed; Saehee fantastically rocking a CV hand-me-down unlike I ever wore it; frantic shopping for a fancy party on Friday night which led me to a Givenchy LBD con mucho oro; meeting Fergie at said fancy party and being left with a girl crush - nice person, pretty, natural and funny. 
Clockwise from top left: undyed leather wrist wraps/belts; Saehee with Vena Cava for the Gap dress and CV simple tote for Anthro; Lulu Powers and Fergie; Leopard zip-around iPhone case; Lizzie going to work on a wristwrap; close-up of Saehee and her undyed wrist adornment; royal blue and red Kindle Fire case, yes, Kindle, New York Subway riders; moi en Givenchy.
Another look at the Givenchy dress. This is also to show that I'm on the phone with my friend Greta as I'm taking this pic, then texting it to her and she's giving me shoe advice. Yes, I went with these nude strappy ones. Black pumps looked a little "80's career woman on a show-y day at the office." Sad thing is, I'll probably never wear it again. But we're getting more use out of it - Greta is wearing it to a wedding in Vegas this week. Perfect for a wedding in Vegas, no?
Fergie posing with chef extraordinaire Lulu Powers and her staff after the dinner party. Pretty hair, right? I told her that and she said, "thanks, it's called au natural." Why is 'au natural' for celebrities always just a little bit shinier, glossier, silkier? 
A few more from the Crafting Community - I loved how the grown ups got so into the belt making - and the dads! So cute. James from The Secret Headquarters in Silverlake made a masterpiece. The DJ in middle of top row, is from the band Cypress Hill. Those kids were treated to the coolest music set with this guy, it was so fun dancing on Saturday night in the Commune pavilion at the Ace.
And lastly a dreamy picture of someone's goods resting on a toweled, afternoon sun, chaise longue.
Tonight I'm hosting a Lucky blogger's event FABB cocktail party (with a gaggle of other fab women), then a red eye to New York.
Jet-to-the-set. Not really. More like Ti-to-the-red!

And hope you're enjoying NY. It's too bad we're having such bad weather.

What are the nude, strappy sandals? They look great.

The shoes are Pour La Victoire from last year. Good, right?

Lynn said...

Yes, so good. And I remember seeing those last year. Sad I didn't purchase.
