Meet Jesse James! Here is Sandra Bullock, coming off perhaps the best year of her career ,only to learn in the most public and humiliating way that the man she declared her “soul mate” is a liar and a cheat. I wonder what she saw in this sorry excuse for a man. Hope she recovers from the hurt and moves on to a man worthy of her love and devotion. What is she doing with a mechanic anyway…he’s not even hot!
Well, I have so been enjoying the Olympic games, that is all except one….you got it, “Curling?”
I did watch it for a while, but for the life of me, I just don’t get it. I don’t get the point of the game, I don’t understand the technique, what does that movement by two people on the ice do to that ..”thing?” What is that “thing” called, what is that “thing” supposed to do??? Where did this game come from and when, and as I said I just don’t get it, nor do I like it ….I guess that’s because as I said ….huh? It must be a Canadian thing, they won the gold. Good luck to them , they can keep this one.
I am so sad about the premature death of Alexander McQueen. This man who finally became the darling of the fahion world, who seemingly had no where to go but up, apparently took his own life. He was only 40 years old. Seems he nipped his life in the bud. Goes to show that no matter what it looks like, one never knows someone else’s journey. I for one never loved his clothes, but respect his individuality and creativity.
What a shame and loss for those that loved him and of course the rest of us fashionistas…
On Friday, March 5, from 4:00 -9:00 pm, we are celebrating 4 years of “The Linda Derector Store” as we know it. Please join us for champagne and sweets. It is our way of thanking you for your support and to ask you to help us toast to our next incarnation. We are pleased to report that all sorts of possibilities are being considered. We will, of course keep you in the loop. Our last day of business in this location will be Sunday, March 7th and we need to see all of you before then for hugs.
I admit it, I am totally and hopelessly addicted to fashion. But I am an old school kind of girl. My idea of fashion has little to do with trend and everything to do with style. Style, that undefinable “je ne sais quoi, ” the inate ability to know what suits us and what doesn’t. I am horrified on a daily basis by how many people wear clothing that they have no right to even own! Wrong proportion, wrong color etc etc.. Finally, my aha moment. Looking in the windows of an upscale 5th Avenue Department Store there it was…window after window of bad clothes. Clothes that didn’t even look good on mannequins being validated by a fancy retailer. What’s a girl to do??? How to guide those in need…let me think about this and report back…
Who’s more outrageous, John Edwards or Tiger Woods?
I know I am a bit behind on this “breaking news” but I
can’t let my thoughts go unsaid. For me, John Edwards
is the MOST disappointing lying human being. How many
times does he think he can deny something and then
admit it? This man, this spineless, gutless, dishonest,
unethical, narcissist could have been our president.
As for Tiger, to my way of thinking he has serious
problems, and btw, that doesn’t make him any less
of a jerk.
With reference to last entry…the correct name of the
book I referred to is “The Private Lives of Yves St
Laurent and Pierre Berge” If you are a fan, an artist,
a fashionista or someone who loves to look into the
minds of genius you’ll love it.
I just received the most wonderful and beautiful book about Yves St Laurent, as told by Pierre Berge, his life and business partner. It is a pictorial of YSL’s beautiful homes, as well as a look into the mentality of the designer. YSL was a man who couldn’t help but design; he was beyond passionate about his craft, he was obsessive, if you will, he was a visionary, a genius. Reading his story evoked nostalgia about the way it was.
Well, I just read that Sarah Jessica Parker (aka SJP) was just named Pres and Artistic Director of Halston. Now, I am a fan of SJP, I think she has great style, she looks great in clothes and I am a HUGE fan of Sex in the City. But how does she qualify for this job ? The likes of YSL, Dior, Emanuel Ungaro, Chanel, Valentino, et al , didn’t have any other career. They were 100% committed to their art. They didn’t act, produce, direct, licence their names…they were artists who lived and breathed their work. I love fashion, and have been around long enough to remember when fashion designers were revered. Now, I guess it takes celebrity to fuel interest. Is this an, if “Lindsay Lohan can do it so can SJP?” What has celebrity to do with designing??? Oh, BTW, Julia Roberts has just been named the face of Lancome…Call me crazy, but I don’t get it.
Beginning Tuesday, Jan 19th, we will be in SUPER SALE MODE… All frames will be priced at $50, $100 and $150. Come and get it!! In order for you to take full advantage of this opportunity, we will be open every day, Monday thru Sunday, noon ‘til 7:00pm.
The thing is, I myself will be moving on, and sadly, we will be closing the store on March 8th.
It was not an easy decision; I have had so much fun being the doyenne of out of the ordinary eyewear. I have loved getting to know each and every one of you. Helping you through the selection process, having laughs and making friends…it was like having a party each time you came in.
It is a New Year and time for a new adventure. Rest assured, you will be hearing from me again… After all, I will miss you!
Linda, Elena and Carlos
Let’s bring back the Brad Pitt topic for a moment here, apparently I am not the only one who has an opinion about Pitt’s mountainous facial hair.
According to www.movies.com (Worst Celebrity Facial Hair of 2009 – Brad Pitt), they also have something to say: For reasons that still aren’t clear to me, 2009 became the year that Brad Pitt decided to grow the ugliest chin-beard known to man. That thing became so raunchy he even decided to braid it and hang little beads in there. It was kinda reminiscent of a 100-year-old miniature Christmas tree that had rotted away decades ago. Dude needs a shave, like, yesterday. (http://www.movies.com/movie-news/celebrity-gossip/the-worst-of-2009-part-1/20091224)
