Bird Love: Charley Harper

Charley Harper was brilliant. His illustrations are some of my favorite artistic works. Finally, someone is selling his work online. I was reading Neu Black's post about Gallery One, who is selling his prints online. Finally, his work is now easily accessible for purchase. I love this print. It is called Cardinal Courtship. See more prints at Gallery One.

Fighting the Temptation: Christian Louboutin

I am slowly but surely losing the battle to ignore Christian Louboutin. His shoes are everywhere I turn. There isn't any escape for me. They are in every magazine that I read. Calling me. Begging me to pay attention. Luring me in with their fabulousness. How can I turn my head to shoes like these? I can't anymore. You win Christian Louboutin. I raise my white flag to your greatness. Find his shoes at Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Barney's, Bluefly, and a host of other luxury retailers. Here are my favs for those brides/bridesmaids that want to be modern and push the envelope:

More Beauty from Hanna Touma

Here are a few lovelies from his bridal collection. Just wonderful. No words. Visit his site.

OMG! I have once again stumbled upon a designer who is so amazing that I am at a loss for words. Enter Hanna Touma. He is the toast of Lebanon. His designs are much sought after in the Middle East and I completely understand why. A woman wants to make jaws drop when she enters a room and you will do just that with one of his dresses. The first dress is my absolute favorite. You can see his enter 07-08 collection here. Here are my favorites (I had so many):
