Why I almost died

Why I almost died:

Reason #1:
Trying on this Givenchy dress last week at South Coast (Alena almost died from the Zac Posen she tried on). For some reason I forgot to look at the price tag, but it wouldn't have changed anything... It was so perfect. It fit me perfectly, and was so perfectly ruffle-y and classic at the same time. Sigh...


Others I tried on, including a Chloe scallop skirt (so amazing) and a Marc by Marc Jacobs exposed zipper party dress

Reason #2:
Raf Simmons latest Jil Sander collection. Yeah.

Reason #3
some key looks from some key shows that I will hopefully share tomorrow. Favorites so far: Everything Rodarte, Alexander Wang, the end dresses at Proenza Schouler, Christopher Kane, Erdem, the tights at Doo.Ri, Calvin Klein, and more.
(first to last: Rodarte, Proenza Schouler, Christopher Kane, Alexander Wang, Doo.Ri)

Reason #4
Style.com updated their iPod application and now I get EVERY SINGLE show from EVERY season since 2001. I've been having fun reminiscing at the old Pheobe Philo Chloe days..

Reason #5
I need to find a way to get the new Lula... and its very possible I won't :(

Oh and Reason #6
freaking CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN was at South Coast Plaza, a high end mall about 30-45 minutes, depending on traffic, away from my house signing shoes and I did not get to go but Jessica did and got her Influence book signed and got TO MEET HIM AND TAKE PICTURES WITH HIM. I hate my life. not really but my life would be much better if I had gotten to meet Christian Louboutin

OH and Reason #7

Penelope Cruz. At the Academy Awards. In VINTAGE PIERRE BALAIN. from the 1950's. that she saw 8 years ago and no one had bought it and it magically fit her. Oh to be Penelope Cruz. (by the way, as I am an old movie obsessive, and I have poured over my Academy Award book, I can honestly say that this was the best show in a LONG time! The opening number, Ben Stiller's Jaquin Pheonix, the Pineapple Express video, the "musicals are back" -I'm a theatre geek- at least until high school musical showed up, what the hell? haha And how they presented the acting awards! Amazing! Oh and Heath Ledger's family AND the Paul Newman tribute video, beautiful)



Before I shut up... I actually DID almost die last week. Well kind of. I got into an accident. It was COMPLETELY my fault as I am an idiot and wasn't paying attention for a minute, but no one was hurt, except for the cars. Mine is being fixed (just the front bumper) so I won't get in back for about 2 weeks. :(

Sorry it has taken me so long to post! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
