crazy new year's eve



Yves Montand eyeing Jeanne Moreau across a crowded room.

Middleweight champion Marcel Cerdan noticing a not so reticent Edith Piaf for the first time.

The come hither look.

The French accessorize better than anyone else because they understand signals a little more.

For the woman that knows who she is, what she wants, and doesn't care who knows it.

Gold Lace Choker (No. 2570). French lace, crystals, and velvet intertwine. Great flirtatious fun.

Merry Christmas






"I have spent my life watching, not to see beyond the world, merely to see, great mystery, what is plainly before my eyes. I think the concept of transcendence is based on a misreading of creation. With all respect to heaven, the scene of the miracle is here, among us. The eternal as an idea is much less preposterous than time, and this very fact should seize our attention."

Marilynne Robinson

Merry Christmas


"Mere forgetfullness cannot remove it

Nor wishing bring it back, as long as it remains

The white precipitate of its dream

In the climate of sighs flung across our world,

A cloth over a birdcage. But it is certain that

What is beautiful seems so only in relation to a specific

Life, experienced or not, channeled into some form

Steeped in the nostalgia of a collected past."
