    Lipstick Jungle

    So I'm finally giving up and watching Lipstick Jungle. Its on Hulu. I'm bored. I love successful women shows. I -loved- Cashmere Mafia. Which is primarily why I didn't want to watch Lipstick Jungle. I'm just finishing the first episode and here is my major qualm. While it is evident that Cashmere Mafia invested heavily in their sets, making them reflect the fiscal success as well as individual taste of the individuals they represented, Lipstick Jungle appears to have run out to Ikea, grabbed what they could, and threw it on top of generally bland sets. I understand that this is a pilot, but if the sets don't start looking better, I will be forced to abandon the show. I cannot abide by poor taste.

    I also miss Lucy Lui hardcore and have been watching her on Dirty Sexy Money. I -love- that show.

    and yes, I did just c&p that from facebook. So, the show should obviously be awesome. I know that you can tell this just by looking at it. I know you can. I have faith in you.

    Later today we'll have a roundup of my favorite prints (including an awesome Audrey Kawasaki that goes on sale this weekend I think), a few looks that i like or have questions about, and photography finds.

    Speaking of photography, why is it so hard to get B&W 120mm processed. I just want to know whats on my damn lomos!! I spoke with Shane (owner of ArtWhino, aka Bossman) and he suggested Chrome Imaging, (whom I love dearly), but I don't feel like driving into DC for 12 images. Motophoto will process 120mm color, and I suspect DigipixArt will as well (btw they are really quite awesome people to work with, their processing services are fabulous, I send my dad there all the time (yeah I need to work on his website so badly). Anyway, speak to you soon!

    Michelle Obama

    So First Ladies have always been well dressed, immacu even, their stylings chosen by the creme de la creme in demur taste. Last night Michelle Obama wore a stunning dress by Narcisco Rodriguez, one I absolutely loved. Someone I was sitting with had the audacity to say that it made her look like she had a bun in the oven, but, they obviously have no taste. I'm so excited about this presidency, and what it means, that I can only contain myself by distracting my mind with what the potential influence upon fashion Michelle Obama will likely have. A powerful black woman has of late been typified simply by Oprah, but now...we have a similiar but different taste. I eagerly await the summer day when we see Michelle Obama sweep by in a wrap dress by the ever-awesome Diane Von Furstenberg.

    I could cry

    I'm so proud to be an American. So proud.
