Saint Laurent Paris

 Hedi Slimane plans to restore "original branding" to YSL and call its ready to wear line Saint Laurent Paris. Where will Hedi's vision for SLP take us? Viva rock LA?

The details of these summery sandals by YSL a few seasons ago have a decidedly natural woman look and are anything but ordinary! Size 36 for petite feet. Le Dressing Monaco is a warm, up-to-now resale shop we visited in Monaco-Ville.

Getty Over Here

Today at the Getty Center - Herb Ritts: LA Style and Portraits of Renown: Photography and the cult of celebrity. All the supermodels were there - Cindy, Christy, Naomi, Stephanie and Tatjana. The early MTV music videos and commercials were priceless. I had a big crush on Chris Isaak and couldn't believe Helena Christensen's hair was so so long....The garden was spectacular and the afternoon won't be forgotten soon. These Seattle/DC dwellers have even more appreciation for living close to LA

Fathers Day 2012

It's rare that we go anyplace with the whole family. Solveig's away at school. Sena and Seamus are growing up and avoid us when we invite them on our outings, unless it's something they find worthwhile like the beach or Joshua Tree. 
 This fathers day they woke before sunrise so we could be in in the park early to beat the triple digit temps - it was 108 degree at noon when we drove to palm springs for lunch.
 We had a fabulous time soaking the heat into our bones.

Anna's Style

 Anna is a gorgeous woman, who possesses an aura of uninhibited happiness and brings a little Sicilian magic to everyone she meets.

The Tree of Vence

The ash tree given to the village of Vence by Francois I in the 16th Century stands today - 
with a little help.
