Currently



book
Still haven't finished the one from last week but have already started a couple of other books. My attention span is at an all-time low.

song
Rufus Wainwright- Movies of Myself (from his Want One album). A beautiful love song. Rufus is in my top ten artists. I love his voice and the mix of opera, pop and show tunes in his music. I saw him live on the last concert of his Release the Stars tour and wanted to take him home with me.

frequently worn outfit or item
A black knee-length skirt I bought in Paris a couple of years ago. It's a thick knit, stretchy that flares at the knee and fits perfectly. One of those versatile "dress it up or down" pieces that go with everything.

perfume
I had a serious craving this week for Mazzolari Lui. Yes, the masculine version of the cuteness that is Lei. I needed the dirtier patchouli, so for three days straight I was helping myself to my husband's bottle. It's a beautiful scent from a great house that doesn't get as much attention as it deserves.

food
Green salad. Baby greens, soy nuts, dried apples, olive oil and fruit-infused balsamic.

drink
Chocolate flavored black tea. Don't laugh. It's aromatic and very satisfying. Since I don't use sugar and only add a splash of skim milk, there's no guilt involved.

guilty pleasure
I watched the first episode of The Real Housewives of NYC. Between being horrified of the show and of myself, I promptly added a season pass to my TiVo.

bane of my existence
Adjusting to daylight saving time. I love the concept (and the daylight) and would like it all year round with two extra hours for summer, but I'm going to feel jet-lagged for days.

anticipation
Like last week, still waiting for spring. I can't wait to see the first crocus .

wishlist
This sexy little dress from Donna Karan's spring collection. I really liked the red one above, but it has pockets where no woman wants any extra volume, so I'll settle for the brown dress, probably without the belt. I'm too short to have something so wide cut me in the middle.


What are your current loves?
