Requiem, Mass. by John Dufrense. The tragi-comic story of a dysfubctional family. I haven't read his previous novels, but now I absolutely have to find them. This book takes you places.

White Winter Hymnal- Fleet Foxes. Their album is the one new release I absolutely loved this summer.

Frequently worn outfit/item
A white denim miniskirt from J. Crew. It's the perfect length without being too age-inappropriate. I pair it with several DVF tops for a pulled-together look.

Donna Karan Chaos. Who knew it was perfect for summer?

Tinted moisturizer

Fresh tomatoes. That's what summer in NJ is all about.

Half unsweetened ice tea, half lemonade

Guilty Pleasure
Using perfume to scent bed linens

Bane of my existence
Feline waste management

Serge Noire

Today is Madonna's 50th birthday. How is that even possible?

Oovoo bags


  1. Love your list--the bag is killer!

    Here's mine:

    Abundance, a novel of Marie Antoinette by Sena Jeter Naslund.

    Not a big music fan, like the sound of silence much better.

    Frequently worn outfit/item
    New "fabulously fake" wedding set for Can't afford the real thing right now, and I've lost so much weight that I lost my original wedding band--it slipped off my finger!

    Just used up the last of my Armani Code--on the hunt for something new.

    Makeup: My own version of tinted moisturizer (1/2 Neutrogena Visibly Even moisturizer, 1/2 Estee Lauder Individualist foundation), Imju Fiberwigh mascara. I'm ready to go!!

    Food: Tacos. They're what's for dinner.

    Drink: Iced coffee with milk.

    Guilty Pleasure: Sneaking a cigarette while walking the dog, LOL!

    Bane of my existence: Feline waste management (I AM SOOOO WITH YOU ON THIS ONE!!)

    Anticipation: Finishing the paint job on the lanai today. I can't wait until it's over!

    Thought: If I hadn't burned all those old pictures (long story) in the grill on the lanai, I wouldn't be painting it today. Dumb.

    Wishlist: A new bag for fall. I love the one that YOU picked!

  2. That photo of Madonna is so strange when you compare it to how she looks nowadays

    Loving at the moment- Louis Vuitton Millionaire Sunglasses

    Not luvin' so much- Madonna's attempts to stay cool and contemporary. She doesn't need to she is a living legend.

    Also loving the fact that Top Shop is coming to the US. Kate Moss designed for Top Hop here in the British Isles. Hopefully some of her designs will be launched in the states too

  3. Nurseexec- Searching for a new fragrance is a lot of fun. If I remember correctly, Armani Code has a warm orange-vanilla thing going on. You might like Stella from Tocca Perfumes.

  4. CD- I'm quite interested to see the offering from Top Shop, even though I deeply dislike Kate Moss.

  5. Book
    when you are engulfed in flames - sedaris, breakfast at tiffany's

    tom waits

    Frequently worn outfit/item
    i don't have one, i desperately need new clothes.

    frangipane... it relaxes me.

    Makeup: tinted moisturizer, an amazing lancome shadow i rediscovered in my makeup bag... can't remember the name but it's a warm plum with lots of bronze shimmer. sounds weird but it's beautiful, i dust a bit of naked lunch on top to soften it for day.

    Food: chicken piccata.

    Drink: iced americano.

    Guilty Pleasure: hitting the snooze button as many times as possible.

    Bane of my existence: my birthday's on friday and i have no idea what i'm doing.

    Anticipation: ...birthday?

    Thought: i wish finding a reasonably priced sublet in SF was easier.

    ... the black patent was $275 but it's sold out. *siiiigh*

  6. So with you on Fleet Foxes - and their EP is even better. Mykonos just fills me with wonder.

  7. Kamo, Happy Birthday! I hope you're having a lovely day.

  8. Lee- I have the EP and love love love Mykonos.
