Words can't express my love.

POP Quiz

Possibly the greatest magazine cover of all time.

Also: Which preppy, suburban store do I now work at?

Help Save the Gap

I've always been an true Gap lover at heart. Maybe being dressed in head-to-toe Gap as a little kid created an instinct to stick with Gap products (bear with me while I analyze myself, Freudian style), but I can't seem to shake the Gap from my shopping list, bad designs or no.

So the recent (well, more like ongoing) decline in Gap sales made me more than a little depressed.

There's only so much you can buy on your own in an attempt to boost sales. One person may not make much of a big impression, so I'm enlisting your help:

- a sweet little printed skirt; can you resist?
- a crochet trimmed button down, in navy and cream
- your basic cant-live-without denim mini with a twist
- everyone needs a leather jacket
- a slouchy dress with side pockets
- madras madras madras shorts

If my sweet whisperings haven't convinced you, think of this: consignment and vintage is amazing, but there's nothing like a little corporate promotion to make your life a little better.

Twenty8Twelve Preview Out!

Celeb lines are usually a source of much debate - usually too downmarketed, with the star's face plastered over everything (Stuff by Hilary Duff much?).

Then there's the other end of the scale, like Pharrell's line (I don't actually know what it's called, forgive me) with its' uber exclusivity (although I question 'rap' clothing's actual place in the fashion industry - but I digress) and the Olsen Twins' The Row.

So where does Savannah Miller's Twenty8Twelve line fit in?

There's an awful lot of crinkled silk/taffetta looking material with a lot of draping and ruching. Not exactly the most innovative or beautiful design, and in fact it looks too stuffy and matronly to me. Not warranted the hype, though I might change my mind after seeing the whole thing.

Check out the rest of the preview here.

Naomi Campbell is Still Amazing

Oh, Naomi. Don't be so distraught.

The tabloids love you, we love you (even though you're a bitch) and camera definitely loves you. Noone rocks a sequined mermaid backless dress like you do (except for maybe Kate, but she's losing her touch these days).
Way to make a comeback, you have my heartiest congratulations.

ps. Although this was my favourite picture, I especially the one with Naomi in sweats, holding a hot dog up to her mouth. We just know she rinsed her mouth after to get that nasty proletarian smell out.

The Duo Who Done It

Sunshine, a beautiful new dress, and a cup of steaming mocha. What could be better?

This girl knows. Opening up the online homepage to the NY Mag and finding this article. You've heard (and read) about the New York social set. Far more interesting than celebrities (personally) and on average far better dressed, socialites are catty, usually gorgeous, and never missed a party.

The blog that ranked Tinsley Mortimer as Number 1 bitch (which I sort of agree with) and that I've been obssessively reading since I've found it three months ago, Socialite Rank, was written anonymously, and left everyone guessing. But yesterday,

The duo behind Socialite Rank finally 'fessed up, and made this girl one very happy girl indeed.
