The long and short of it.

Happy Birthday to my eyes.....
I love love love the maxi skellator dress. The perfect hot summer night number. 
Note: The above looks only work when you
have small boobs and absolutely no front butt.
Dress accordingly. Happy shopping babes!

Can we bring these back please?

The first smart ass response would be, "Well she isn't in jail, why does she need to be free?"
Allow me to answer my own question with another question. "Have you seen Black Swan?"
Like Charlie Manson has said, "Jail is a state of mind, friend and I am free". Sadly Winona is not.
She is in her own version of Alcatraz and can't swim her way to shore to save her life. FREE WINONA!

Dream Dog

Some people have dream homes. Some people have dream cars. Some people even have jobs,
I on the other hand have dream dogs.....and this is him. I got this email this morning with a bunch of photos of this wicked awesome dog with sniper rifles and this snub nose lady smith. I think this one was the best.
So in my dream world, this is my new dog. His name is Dirty Harry, and he will kill you.

My new favorite webbie! 80's purple is the new black and what a black beauty she is. I love the pairing of colors and the No Fear attitude towards mixing prints. Very new Laurel Canyon girl meets Jill Sanders meets Francis Coppolas,The Rain People, which by the way is beeeeeeeeeeautiful!
This could be love....

This has been Stevie Stills and it Has been a while.

la famiglia

"Bonasera, Bonasera, what have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you'd come to me in friendship, this scum who ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by some chance an honest man like yourself made enemies they would become my enemies. And then, they would fear you."

- Don Vito Corleone

The cool kids table

It's like the most popular kids in high school all sitting at the same lunch table. Can I come hang out?
Top to bottom we have Halston, best known for his Ultrasuede Dress, a flock of beautiful phillies as his entourage and fantastic disco wear draping. Yves Saint Laurent, the protégé of Christian Dior that made a name for himself in the hard to crack circle of elite Paris designers, over the top dresses and shows, perfume and cosmetic line, above all raising the standards of elegance and glamor in womans wear. Mary Aquant who gave us the mini skirt, COLOR and changed the face of fun youth fashion in the UK, shortly after the US caught up and joined the party. Diane Von Furstenberg, the bell of the ball, gave us the wrap dress. She made women feel comfortable with their curves by using the Chignon approach that is used in hair, and instead applied it to her dresses. Genius! Last but not least, CK1 aka Calvin Klein. CK1 brought us back to the basics with his over yet glorious use of simple lines, black white and greys galore and the time tested and mother unapproved heroin chic. What a line up! This is just a humble homage to the people who inspire me to do better, dress fresher and look at fashion with a different pair of eyes. Thanks cool kids, and thank you studio 54 aka Stevie Rubel for being the lunch table that they supped upon.

Memories and Monuments

We made it! Welcome to the big "A" kids!
So stoked to be back home. It's like I never left....
No really. Conchas house is as creepy as ever.

Cinematic Genepool

Sweet faced Sofia here with a vintage air....Haw-lin was kind enough to post a picture of vintage Sofia and I thought I would set my over achiever status in stone and find even better ones. When Francis Ford Coppola is your father and Roman Coppola is your brother it's hard to go astray in the film world. How intense their family dinners must be.....Pasta, vino, screen play read overs, character dissection and un sacco di amore. Being a Coppola must be the bees knees, but I would not trade my kin for all the indie film festival awards in the world.

Happy Birthday Jackie - Love Elvis

Don't tell me you don't know what love is
When you're old enough to know better
When you find strange hands in your sweater
When your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote
I'm a man with a mission in two or three editions
And I'm giving you a longing look
Everyday, everyday, everyday I write the book
Chapter One we didn't really get along
Chapter Two I think I fell in love with you
You said you'd stand by me in the middle of Chapter Three
But you were up to your old tricks in Chapters Four, Five and Six
The way you walk
The way you talk, and try to kiss me, and laugh
In four or five paragraphs
All your compliments and your cutting remarks
Are captured here in my quotation marks
Don't tell me you don't know the difference
Between a lover and a fighter
With my pen and my electric typewriter
Even in a perfect world where everyone was equal
I'd still own the film rights and be working on the sequel..

Elvis Costello's 1983 first #1 hit - Everyday I write the book <3

Wild Orphan by Allen Ginsberg

Blandly mother
takes him strolling
by railroad and by river
--he's the son of the absconded
hot rod angel--
and he imagines cars
and rides them in his dreams,

so lonely growing up among
the imaginary automobiles
and dead souls of Tarrytown

to create
out of his own imagination
the beauty of his wild
forebears--a mythology
he cannot inherit.

Will he later hallucinate
his gods? Waking
among mysteries with
an insane gleam
of recollection?

The recognition--
something so rare
in his soul,
met only in dreams
of another life.

A question of the soul.
And the injured
losing their injury
in their innocence
--a co*k, a cross,
an excellence of love.

And the father grieves
in flophouse
complexities of memory
a thousand miles
away, unknowing
of the unexpected
youthful stranger
bumming toward his door.

New York, April 13, 1952

Told ya

I think I could listen to this song all day. Jim Jones style.


Mad Men had big shoes to fill with the much anticipated new season beating down their door. I have to say, the first 2 episodes were ok. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the meat and blood of the show to make an appearance. There were a few serious parts, few artsy parts. They dance around the segregation issue with a tounge in cheek attitude but they could have done much better in my opinion.

Oh hey guess what!

I'm tired.

HA! And this pic was taken from when I partied those many many years ago...I'll be back one of these days. Disco lives!

Kase Wo Atsumete

Driving in the car on the way to the Wesboro house it started to rain.
Shuffle shuffle, insert, play and turn the dial up to 11.
Kase Wo Atsumete
Windshields wipe
Windsheilds wipe
Kase Wo Atsumete
Sun peaks through the baby grey clouds
Grass gets greener
Birds chirp louder
Kase Wo Atsumete
Windsheilds off
Shift into park
Exit to the left

Trix are for kids

I have been a bad mom and left my baby bloggy in the dumpster on prom night. SORRY!
I have not had any computer time to keep up with my quotes, hopes and mundane comments I subject you all to. I am moving and moving office spaces at work. Bare with me folks.

Yuuuup! Atlantic Records 1987 goodness.

I fooooounnd it!

I have been on the search for the perfect yet sarcastic power blazer. I am moving up into a new position at work and I will need to spruce up my look. More schmooze, more professional and more "power blazertastic". I have found a few but I think the best bet, color wise, would be to go virgin white.

Dream blog

On of the doctors I work with has been encouraging me to make a dream board. A collage of all of my ideas concerning the new house, on one poster board. I can never color inside the lines, so I made a dream folder. It holds all of my paperwork and magazines that I need to keep my creative juices flowing. So to follow suit, I decided to throw a bunch of inspiring photos on the blog as well. This will help me in my decoration quest. Over the color gauntlet and through the texture woods, to the Westboro house we go!

Side note: This last photo of the smurf blue/ hotel california room is sooo sweet. If we had blue carpet I would be all over this look for the master bedroom, with pink champagne on ice!


With a heavy heart we lay to rest the sweetest dog in the world. Peace be with the family and friends of Gidgy Lord. <3 ya Mama.

Here here!!

I see a great weekend with my loves in the near future....Cheers!


Big changes, big plans, big move, big yard, big big. I have so much in my head on a minute by minute type of fast cutting type of vision in my head about the new house. I am so excited and humbled in regards to my new opportunity. So much to do and can go quite mad. The only thing I keep obsessing over is the back yard. I am head over heals in love with it. It is my new baby, and this is my vision.

Uppity up!

This picture makes me wish umbrellas were like balloons... extremely non functional I know. More so in a Mary Poppins type of way. Transportational yet fashionable.
