Retuning from NYC's fashion world to 
LA's design world....
Los Angeles native Scotti Sitz 
opened GARDE at 7418 Beverly Boulevard
last March!!!

Influenced by her time at 
Calvin Klein & Giorgio Armani
Sitz's aesthetic is "clean & modern"!!!

She infuses the store with a primarily neutral color palette,
from taupe & stone to grey & greige ..... 
plus a selection of dark indigo solids, 
stripes & patterns.
Buying only what she "loves" .......
this store raises the bar for 
"chic & contemporary style" in LA!!! 


A fabulous "accessorator" find in LA last month .....

exhibited 
a collection of the work of furniture dealer/artist
at Design/Miami 2012.
 
The installation created by gallery owner
a great friend & collector of Loughlin's work,
celebrated the legendary artist.

A dealer since the 60's, Loughlin began painting
his signature motifs on 
"found" recycled furniture" .....
picked-up at flea markets & thrift stores
in the 80's. 
 
His quirky signature motifs included ...
a man with a cigarette, 
Zippo lighters & other thematic emblems 
of the times.
 
Johnson has also published a book titled
featuring his collection of furniture 
with Loughlin's iconic imagery.
 
I adored the pieces but,
 had a special response to the mirror,
which has a logo sticker with the Greek letters 
of my college sorority ...
Sigma Delta Tau!!!
 
Very 1960's ....
now considered very vintage!!!

This is one of those sad & sorrowful stories .....
that has a fabulous ending!!!
 
Every "accessorator supreme" knows that Christmas 2012
is all about the "fashionable collaboration" 
between Barneys & the Walt Disney Company ...
 
Well, I have been waiting breathlessly to get my hands on
the delightful & divine 
featured in Barneys holiday ads!!!
 
Sooooo, I raced uptown to Barneys last Thursday,
ahead of the crowds .... I thought,
but low & behold I was told they was gone!!!
 
"Impossible" I said ...
"No" said the charming salesman ...
"What happened???" I moaned!!!
"They've all been recalled" he announced!!!
"WHAT????"
"Yep, the ears fell off!!!!"
 
I was désole .... 
I rushed downstairs, out the door,
grabbed my Iphone, 
& called my fabulous fashion friend WR in disbelief!!!
 
"Breath deeply"he said ...
"We'll discuss it tonight at dinner!!"
 
So, I sadly trugged home .....
beyond bereft!!!
 
7PM brought a knock on the door .....
the divine and dapper WR & MK  arrived for dinner
with GUESS WHAT???
The impossible .... MY SNOW GLOBE!!!!
 
The moral of the story is ...
"Fabulous Fashion Friends" are a "must-have" ...
especially with a great Rolladex!!!

 

Isn't it divine .....
"Hey, don' t touch the ears!!!!"

Am I Suddenly Shoe Obsessed ....... Or Is It Feet?????

Have shoes suddenly become the
"accessoration supreme???
(see blog 10/3/12)

Or is it that I can't stop looking down???
I adore a good Missoni pattern ...

(see blog 4/30/10, 5/1/10/, 9/16/10,
9/21/10, 8/4/11, 12/12/11)

But, the collaboration between 
is deliciously,decadently, divine!!!

Unfortunately ...
I can't find 'em anywhere ....
Colette is sold out!!!

Glorious, Glamorous, & Gorgeous ..... Creel and Gow!
