hold on to your hats!

whoosh! the wind!! 
up to 60 miles per hour this weekend! 

what kind of monkey business is this?
things have been so balmy and mild since Christmas!

even today, when the winds had died down, hats upon hats, all over town!

monkeys, bears, pom poms, berets

cloches, fedoras, beanies, fur, trappers, i say,

the hats have hit!

from west side to east,

there is no taming of the beast!

happy Sunday, New York!

and now, hats off to the Oscars!

my carriage awaits....

all that glitters is gold

on thursday night, i met a friend and her oh so sympa son, newly turned 11, at the intime fi:af (french institute alliance francaise) opening reception of a show entitled 'dressed for art' featuring fashion illustrations by jean-phillippe delhomme.

fashionistas will know delhomme for his work for barneys new york, or for his regular contributions to GQ, or for his own blog, the unknown hipster.  (which of course means he is truly well known, super-chouette and hyper- cool)...

the crowd was cool, too, and the art amusant, from portraits of karl lagerfeld to witty quips and captions on the subject, and subjects, of fashion.

while i waited for my friend, i stepped out of the box, the small white box of a gallery that holds the installation, that is, and took a few snapshots of the most standout gold mary janes, mon dieu.

i believe they were repetto, and that the bag was vanessa bruno. 
no matter, glitter and sequins this good need no introduction....ooh la la!

reflecting, toe to toe ....
lions and tigers and bears, oh my!
iconic bag and shoe, jeans and a pea coat...
strike a pose...

the show runs from february 24th through april 14th. 

and visit for more information on Fashion at FIAF.

don something magical, click your heels three times, and you are there!

a tout a l'heure!

roses are red
sometimes friends with blue,

buds tipped in yellow
favor blooms of many hues...

Happy Valentine's Day and thanks to Spring fashion editorials by New York TImes T Magazine and by Marie Claire Magazine...xoxo
