Dear Simon Doonan

PLEASE no. What is happening at Barney's? This email arrived in my inbox. From Barney's.

I love Barneys, but if this is the "future"...and when I say "this" I mean stupid rapper t-shirts masquerading as fashion?

Makes Me Laugh Out Loud

Birthday Month Comes To An End

It was absolutely not my intention to turn Birthday Week into Birthday Month, but whatever. It was fun! A little recap, yes?

I was taken to dinner here:

And lunch here:

And then all my girls took me in a big van to the wineries:

And then there were the shoes:

And then I was gifted tickets to Lyle Lovett & his Large Band, with Shawn Colvin here.

So, there was a lot of wine, a lot of cake, and a lot of shoes. Meaning, next month will not be Birthday Month, but rather Fat-Flush-Detox-Shopping-Embargo Month.

Not quite as fun as Birthday Month.

You Know...

Somedays, you wake up refreshed and excited about the day!

And other days, your cat poops on your comforter.

Hope you're all having the FIRST kind of day.

File Under "Are You Effing Kidding Me?!"

One of my favorite Bliends, I Heart Fashion, just had me gobsmacked when I read her post about her Marshall's coups.

It is now my sole mission in life to go live near I Heart Fashion, and shop at the Marshall's in her neighborhood. If for nothing else but finding something like this Proenza Schouler top:

At Marshall's for crying out loud!

Michael Bay Is Awesome

Alternate title: Four words I never thought I'd say.

Michael Bay - you know, the director who does all the monstrous explosion movies, with overly dramatic musical scores? Well, he directed "Transformers", and is going to be directing "Transformers 2 - more transforming" (probably not the actual title), and has asked Megan Fox to gain weight for her role. Word on the street is that he doesn't like skinny girls. No offense to skinny girls, but that rocks. I'm going to have a sandwich.

Would you wear this?

Oh that cute Kate Hudson is just suffering through an endless tabloid crush of attention. People can't seem to get enough of her rumored romances, and love seeing her photographed with her most recent date (Lance Armstrong), while wearing a stream of bohemian-chic ensembles.

It's My Birthday Week! Birthday Week!

Yep, when you get older, you need a full week to celebrate. And celebrate I IS!

Happy Birthday to me:

Happy Birthday to me:

Happy BIRTHDAY dear Gretta:

Happy Birthday to me:

Dang that girl is self-indulgent on her birthday. What is she doing to "give back"?!

I'm so glad you asked, and by the way all of the shoes were SUPER on sale. I mean REALLY marked down. And the hat was a gift.

*I just signed up for a monthly donation to the ASPCA. Damn that Sarah McLachlan and those unbearably gut-wrenching commercials!

*I will be lopping off 10 inches of hair on Wednesday to donate to Locks of Love (third time! It's a three-peat!)

You Deserve A Spanking

We definitely needed another holiday to put on the calendar, so one of the "leading adult entertainment companies in the world" created Naughty America Day, which is today.

My idea of being naughty would be buying shoes I can't afford.

Do something naughty today!

White-Out, Black-In

Vogue Italia is answering the perpetually controversial model "white-out" issue with a bold exclamation point, and publishing the first ever All-Black Vogue issue (July 2008):

This is fantastic, and I must have a copy! American Vogue, hike up your Diane von Furstenberg Henry High-Waisted Skirt and get in the game.
