#TBT and Olympia Le Tan
I have a fondness for the playing card motif. I’ve done it on my nails and have it printed on dresses. While perusing Style.com recently, I came across Olympia Le Tan’s Fall 2014 collection and thought my my, a woman after my own heart. The accessories and clothes are fun, lighthearted and a heavy dose of kitsch.
I have a vintage dress with a print in the same vein that I picked up in London. And I’m really digging purple lately.
Also very into the look of a 60’s bunny. See more of that fondness here.
Ah yes, here we are! The fun begins! How far is Halloween? Wait…
Now this looks familiar. As soon as I saw it I immediately shot the link over to my Mother and asked “Remember when we did this for Halloween?” I was probably all of 4 years old at the time but if there is anything my Mother can do it’s sew up a mighty Halloween costume. Luckily for us, she dug into the albums and pulled these.
Ah! So ahead of our time. Yours truly as the Red Queen and Mrs. Stair as an Ace card, painting the roses red.
So I ask. Who wore it best?

I looked into my future and this is what I saw (at Brooklyn Museum)
Martinique wall paper print nail art by Mei. Inspired by the lush walls of the Beverly Hills Hotel. And a little scarab beetle too!
This charm bracelet was everything. Martini glass, fur coat, dice, lighter, money, champagne bucket? Was it made for me? I wish it was my birthday! 🍸💰🎲 (at Bavier Brook)
Meet the Kimballs
I just wrapped another round of Fashion Week projects and I’d like you to meet the specs that got me through a lot of excel charts and seating stickers. My Warby Parker Kimball’s (c/o) came last week just in time and I actually did not take them off for days.
In my growing collection of WP’s, the Kimball specs are my favorite. They remind me of a pair I fell in love with at a runway show several years ago, and now, it’s all come full circle.
Happy fashion week kids, take care of your eyes!
The Absinthe ‘Quimby’ sunglasses.
The entire Spring collection is now up and ready for you to scoop up. Another stand out pair? The absinthe colored Quimby sunglasses.
