This may be a bit premature but are you thinking of the holidays yet? With Thanksgiving so late in November and one less week to shop before Christmas, we’re holding onto the catalogs that are already overflowing from our mailboxes. The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book – The HeArt of Giving – is on the top of our pile and while we wouldn’t say no to any of the luxurious treats featured in it, we definitely have some favorites we’d like to share with Santa.

And since we are not selfish, we’ve also picked out some goodies that would please the boys (young and old!)
and a Movie!
The countdown has begun…

There’s something about the simplicity and softness of dusty miller that helps us get through the winter months when all there is to look at is bare branches in the yard.
Not only is is this silvery-gray plant easy to grow, it’s scaringly draught-resistant (for those of you who, like us, neglect their real plants!)
Best of all, their neutral hue goes with absolutely everything… including your wardrobe!
P.S. You’ve probably guessed by now that we’re cutting back a bit on our posts and we hope you’ll keep on reading Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays… after all, isn’t quality better than quantity?

We’re off to walk the showrooms of the Atlanta Market… and bringing along some comfy shoes!

Spring 2001 - "Voss" Collection
It’s no surprise that we’ve been looking forward to today… ever since it was announced this winter that the Met would be celebrating the late Alexander McQueen‘s iconic contributions to fashion, we’ve been counting the days.
Fall 2010 - The Last Collection
Rumor has it that a hundred of McQueen’s designs are artfully displayed including some signature pieces like the dresses he created with extreme silhouettes or the paired-down minimalist sheaths made of feathers or razor clam shells.

Spring 2007 - Sarabande
Fall 2006 - Widows of Culloden
What a treat to be able to gaze upon these creations and be reminded of McQueen’s ability to deliver the unexpected, season after season. Even Sarah Burton, who worked alongside this artist and became a household name last Friday, was reminded of his passion and inspiration when she previewed the exhibit on Monday. We’re sure to be blown away!
Spring 2001 - Kimono Style
Who knows… perhaps one day Kate’s dress will make an appearance!
