Unlikely Icon #1: Linda Ronstadt

I've decided to start posting unlikely icons. If anyone has suggestions, or personal unlikely fashion icons, e-mail me!

Linda Ronstadt is hardly in the public eye anymore, unless she says something political (and I love it when she does). But it's fun to look back and see her at when she was so young, cute, so talented, and such a sex symbol. (My dad had a big crush on her.)

And for anyone who's ever suffered a broken heart, go to iTunes and immediately download "You're No Good."

Miu Miu

Fall is my favorite season, fashionwise and otherwise. I'm generally impressed with this year's fall lines, especially Miu Miu's socks, skirts and cardigans. I'm still on a red kick and I plan on carrying it over into the next season.

La Femme just sent me a link to this ingenious chair.
It really was invented for me. All it's lacking is a coffeemaker fixed somewhere within arm's reach.

Sorry I've been such a shoddy blogger. School has been requiring my undivided attention.

I'm off to Oregon for the next four days (which is my excuse for the covered wagons). I hope to return with updates, pictures, and a renewed work ethic.


Sartorial Eloquence

A little disheveled and bare-faced. Eye-catching textiles and high waists.

I love Selma, love her hair, love the picture. I just wish this wasn't a Gap ad.

The Beckham Effect

This morning on NPR they were discussing/predicting the potential effect of yesterday's arrival of the Beckhams; specifically, the potential growing popularity of soccer and the increasing numbers of British press in L.A. to follow the couple.

Today I experienced the Beckham Effect firsthand. Two people called into the salon to book appointments, saying, "I want a whole new look. I want the Victoria Beckham hairdo." Ah yes. (A girl I work with already has the Victoria hairdo.) If two women are spontaneously changing their hair, and the Beckhams have only been here one day, multiply that by two girls at most salons across America.

My Beckham Effect prediction: we'll be seeing more of Posh's hair than of Beckham's jersey.
