A Few Random Bits...


First up, a couple of snaps from a rather stellar "Mod Men" party that lovely cousin Erin masterminded a several of months ago. (I'm finally sharing photos...better late than never, yes?) Every detail of the night was so perfectly thought out, starting with the killer mid-century house where it was held. In fact, had I not partaken in one two many French 75s (French 75s are evil...trust me on this friends) thus resulting in a monumental hangover the next morning, it would have been an altogether perfect evening... ;-)



Ok next I wanted to share the little blurb about 40 Years of Chez Panisse that I wrote for the November FD Luxe. I love this book. Love. It. Would highly recommend you plop it on your Christmas list... But I am a bit of an Alice Waters fanatic.



I also wanted to give a shout out to Michelle as she's gearing up for another Pretty Mommy pop-up shop but this time in Minneapolis at Spruce. You Minneapolis peeps should definitely plan on attending, as Michelle is not only completely and utterly awesome, but she is a master at culling together the a perfect assemblage of goods. The woman just has crazy good taste. (And I promise I'm not just saying that because she's including some of the necklaces the girlies and I made at the pop-up shop...)



Last but not least, for the locals, my friend Kelly Christine (she took our family photos last weekend) is doing a "small shoot" on Saturday, November 26th... This is a perfect way to get a family pic for your holiday cards. Kelly is incredibly cool and lovely and talented. She takes great photos friends. Grab a spot before they're all gone!

It is so funny that Alice just said that. I was attempting red lipstick yesterday and I just couldn't do it and I thought of you. I love it on others, but find it clownish on myself. I will try again.
