A Spicy and Sweet Juice Recipe for Summer

I'm so back into using my juicer daily and crafting some wild concoctions like this spicy and sweet little number. The celery offers a cooling tone to the power play for your tongue 

Kiwi Pineapple Celery and Jalapeno Juice

-Three fat little Kiwis
-Three wedges of Pineapple 
-One spicy Jalapeno 
-Three stalks of Celery to cool the heat

Chop and juice and serve with celery stalk for a caliente but sweet drink 

Coco Rocha Proves That Having Style Gets You the Job Every Time

Coco Rocha charmed the pants right off Dennis Basso in her vintage Givenchy pantsuit at the MET Ball a few weeks ago

(Coco in vintage Givenchy at MET Ball 2012)

He booked her right away for his Fall 2012 campaign based on her innate style

“What I loved about her was while practically everyone else was wearing borrowed dresses she was wearing an outfit she had bought..." 

Granted, one formerly owned by a little unknown movie actress named Elizabeth Taylor and all. No big whoop.

Anatomy of a Home: We Got a Coffee Table

To put our Budweiser 40's and Diptyque candles on, of course

Ooh and this sweet slidy door moves in and out on either side 

Like a high adventure trundle bed for the remotes.

I love you streets of Park Slope and your treasure trove of finds! 

Kristen Stewart Not Making Any Fans in Midtown

I'm not too thrilled about Kristen Stewart being the Snow White foil to scene stealer Wicked Queen Charlize Theron either

But I'm not going around taking my rage out on innocent bus stop ads for "Snow White & The Huntsman"

CFDA Awards Fashioned Quite the Sexy Host

in Mr Sexy SNL, Seth Meyers

And as we all know from his time behind the Weekend Update desk, he cleans up oh so nice


(I couldn't resist) 

And this year marks the first time they're being televised. Coincidence? Me thinks not! See you Monday eve, Mr Meyers.

Marni for $44 at GILT Right Now

Marni is one of my favorite labels and right now GILT is showcasing this little sass-a-ma-tass leather and feather brooch

And at $44 you best believe I have me eyes set on you, my pretty. Imagine this high street Robin Hood flare on your lapel and you got one conversation started for all Summer gallery openings and weddings. Yeah, I'm that tacky guy who shows up to your wedding with an attention grabber.

Diane Kruger Hustles Her Ginormous Dior Bustle

Diane Kruger wears Dior Spring 2012 Couture at Cannes Film Festival and somehow makes a bustle look modern and easy 

(She seems very pleased with herself, non?)

Damn those Germans and their ability to streamline!

Here's the same couture gown by intermediary Dior designer, Bill Gaytten, back in January 

David Beckham One ELLE of a Guy

David Beckham is making quite a splash on the ELLE UK July 2012 cover, but I personally prefer this sexy tattoos and cropped sweatshirt look. Very Mr Taurus style.

Which cover look of the hot footballer do you prefer?

Man, Milla Jovovitch Cannes Really Work a Dress

(Milla Jovovich in Atelier Versace Spring 2012 at Cannes)

Milla has special skills in filling out and working the hell out of a dress. She looks shades sexier at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala at Cannes than the model who closed out the Atelier Versace Spring 2012 show

That's how you bring attention to your cause, honey!

Oh midtown restaurant, good luck with this grand opening.

Color Me Impressed! Lanvin for $50!

These colored pencils are about as close to paying retail for Lanvin as I'm gonna get, honey

And with witty sayings and fun, flirty and super on-trend colors, pencil me in!

DON'T: Bal-ucci

Spotted this knock off bag with a glaring mistake

'tis an okay 'City Bag' knock off but it's best if you know your Balenciaga from your Gucci, counterfeiters.

Working for Scale

I don't know why but I really wanna waste my paycheck on this mid-century scale on eBay right now

Perchance it's the sleek and yellow? Whatever, the bid's only at $7.99 right now. Beat me to it!

SNL Gave Much Satisfaction

Could it be? An SNL that made me laugh out loud (apologies to my co-workers who had to endure my Monday morning guffaws as I caught up on Hulu just now)

Mick Jagger, sir, I do a fancy roll of my hand and bow gesture to you and your comedic skills

"It would never in a million years be anal"   

"We can dream, can't we? "

And the return of  'Lazy Sunday' brought a whole sing-along about a planned trip to Sister Act the Musical complete with sneaky beverages

 "we take more shots in the theater than John Wilkes Booth"  - BRILLIANT !

And Dooneese finally found love with a hopeless face (and those dwarven hands) with special guest Jon Hamm-ing it up as an Italian singer 

Good for her and a special send-off for Kristen Wiig who is ready for prime time and/or the movies 

Man, that hand got a lot of play!

Coco Rocha Gives Us All a Helpful Reminder

Don't forget to get outside and move around this weekend

And work 50 poses in 50 seconds like a premier Canadian contortionist!

Ladyhawke Got Me Gagged and Bound


It's been a long minute since 'Paris is Burning' and 'Magic'. We've missed you Ladyhawke.

And damn if the new songs we've heard so far including 'Sunday Drive' don't just scream Summer road trips (hopefully ones that go a little smoother than this) and rooftop dancing


Even though still a week away, Memorial Day, here we come with our second favorite New Zealander (Miss A got that one on lock)!

I'm Glad I Kept This Phillip Lim Jacket

My jacket I was gonna sell but decided to keep

End of the Road : Donna Summer

I once had this job where we had an i-pod filled with old queen goes out on the town jams that was on perma shuffle. One of the many faggy faves that looped around was this like 20 minute mega mix of Donna Summer's "Cake in the Rain" nonsense.

In honor of her passing, here's said "McArthur Park", karaoke style


Man, I Gotta Start Drinking Scotch with Dirty Dish Water

Because these sweet and fun cocktails get me every time

Congrats to my friend, David Bergman for releasing his book on green architecture and sustainable design. Last nite he hosted a fete at Revision Lounge and Gallery complete with green themed drinks, the Carbonated Footprint of which I definitely did not conserve. 

Anywho, make sure to pick up a copy of this great book on the history and future of green interiors and exteriors 

('Sustainable Design: A Critical Guide' by David Bergman, $16.13 at,

And if you see me out, make sure I stick to my new cocktail recipe! Ugh. 

Raquel Zimmermann Gives Good Face and Good Advice

In this commercial for Dior jewelry, Brazilian model, Raquel Zimmermann reads lines, forgets lines and gives out dating advice and the kind of "just be yourself" diatribe that can be infuriating coming from a model


But you know what else she's giving? Old style Jerry Hall style modelling

Look at all that gold and big hair, geez. And you can practically smell the lush rose notes of the Dior Addict lipstick and heady Poison perfume.

Lastly, I gotta say: B just turned 29? Lookin' good, milady. (That's pushin' it in model land)

Don't Be a Big Ole Dick

Or do, show that piece off in an 'art film' and talk about it all the time. Is that the lesson we can learn from Michael Fassbender? 

(Ooh and bring on the second coming of D'Angelo and his six pack!) 

Dear British Friends, Send Me a Letter!

Cuz these just released royal mail postage stamps commemorating the fashion stars of the British scene, past and present, have got me licked!

(Nerd Alert: I already got the magnet of the McQueen 'Black Raven' dress from The MET's exhibit)

Would you check out the hair on these stamps? And the drama of that Norman Hartnell coat? This ain't no liberty bell, honey! 

Ooh and that Jean Muir number's just a little slice of Gloria Swanson fabulous-ness, eh?
