Stop it Miley. Stop it.

So I was planning to attend the VMAs Sunday night, but one of Rihanna's gays sent me this photo of Miley on the red carpet, and I automatically told my driver to turn around and head straight for the rooftop at the Jane because I needed to feel safe and secure.
I feel like it's watching me.

Anyways, I made friends with my vodka tonic and was feeling much better, but then someone happened to be streaming the show on their ipad (I still don't know why there was an ipad at the Jane) and I saw this:
I ordered another vodka.

Then this happened:

And I ordered three tequila shots and wondered what was wrong with the world. Fortunately I don't think I was alone:
Lol Zayn.

But despite Miley doing her worst there was one thing about the VMAs that made me feel really okay in a way that nothing else but GOOP has in a long time: 
Look it's Jesus!

I have a new hairspiration. Sorry Kate.  

To celebrate my restored faith in humanity I automatically prank-called Heather Locklear pretending to be Angela Merkel. Heather is now on her way to Germany under the assumption that she is going to be attending a state dinner and giving a speech on starving children in Africa before half the world's diplomats. Ha. I had to get her back for sending me all those bees.
Have fun in Germany, Heather!

Tory Burch Launches Beauty, Doubles Her Worth.

So you may have read somewhere recently that Tory Burch is now worth a cool billion, or perhaps I just made that up, but either way the woman's bank account is pretty healthy. Like Gwyneth healthy. But it's probably going to go all Shallow Hal on us now that Tory Burch is launching a new beauty collection. For those of you who aren't aware most brands really make their money off of beauty and fragrance lines, as those are the easiest for consumers across the board to afford. My head isn't just a hat rack, people.

Left: Tory's wallet before the launch. Right: Tory's wallet one month after.

It'll be a capsule collection of preppy basics-what? From Tory Burch? Shocking, I know. Either way the point to take away from this is to invest in Tory Burch NOW because you can bet this venture is going to cause the value of her company to sky rocket. 

The line will be available for pre-sale 9/6/13, and be available in stores starting on the 26th. Although I haven't seen any prices anywhere I'm going to go out on a limb and guestimate the collection will range from $25-$70. Well played Tory, well played. I know you'll be laughing your tanned ass off all the way to the bank.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Most Obnoxious Food Quotes

Go read this right now at The Savory. It's bliss.

Oh and I cannot get over this look. Gwyn, I think you're the cat's pajamas or whatever, but I literally spit beer out of my mouth when I saw this blouse:
I hope you burned it.

White Nails

Normally I don't stray from basic black if I'm feeling the nail polish, which is sort of a Once In A Blue Moon phenomenon as it is. I like to say Live and Let Live, but guys in colored nail polish (and god forbid multiple colors at the same time) has never really sat right with me; I guess I'm just a traditionalist. I like to stick to my classic punk-rocker wannabe black, thank you very much.

Buuuuuut since white polish has been popping up everywhere as the hot color of 2013, I decided WTF, let's give it a try, and you know what? I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

I tracked down a bottle of Chanel 459 White Satin, which I prefer as it doesn't feature as much shine as other colors such as Pearl Drop and Attraction. Chanel no longer carries White Satin online, but check out the rest of the collection and see below for some great alternative picks!

Ecume, $19

Because it's funny.

Fall 2013 Campaigns: Valentino

Valentino was the show of the season for Fall 2013. That's not an opinion, it's a fact. It was elegant, it was romantic, it was inspired, and it made me want to run around in ball gowns all day (nothing new there). It was the perfect mash-up of Wednesday Adams, Little Red Riding Hood, and a Dutch Master, and that's a combo that could get kind of weird if mishandled.

Check out my favorite looks from the campaign below:

Beautiful, right?

I can't turn it off: ST. LUCIA

I recently got turned on to the band St. Lucia, a funky, dreamy, alt group with a good head for kaleidoscopic beats. I've been playing their song Elevate on repeat since I heard it a few days ago and you will too once you press play.

Go ahead and give it a listen...
