Moschino Spring 2011, of course! I’m kinda liking this collection- the  polka dots, the stripes, the BOWS! The cowboy hat has got to go , though. Seriously, all I can think about is Destiny’s Child. Cheeeeeeze. Anyhow, I can see myself wearing all these outfits. My fave is the last outfit in red and purple polka dots. I think the bows on the collar make the look so dandy. So, the real question is: Would “The Nanny” still wear Moschino?  I have a feeling she would wear this collection, at least. I’m so happy that the Moschino is revived again- it was going through an ‘unfortunate department store’ phase for a while there. Glad to have the high fashion, whimsical look back at Moschino.

D&G’s collection this season was all about the red gingham print reminiscent of summer picnics and Eastern European-style head scarves.I ADORE gingham and headscarves, but  not the Mom Jeans in picture four.I really like how D&G picks a theme ever season and sticks with it throughout the collection.Two images ( and a  few voices, but we won’t go there) came to my head when I saw this collection:

Seriously, though, you can totally just get this Spontaneous Picnic Dress and call it day. I’d wear that to a Ponderosa buffet and call it my eatin’ dress. Anyway, yay for D&G!

I grew up in the cozy state of Rhode Island and wanted to share my favorite places and things in this charming, historic smallest state in the union. Obviously, The Family Guy ranks number one. An artist’s haven, the city of Providence, has many nooks and crannies of cool areas (and FANTASTIC restaurants), including the Italian Federal Hill district. My absolute favorite place to have cake IN THE WORLD is Pastiche. The lemon cake is to die for. Literally. I have devised many attempts to have this cake Fedex-ed to me in California, but all failed. So, I gorged myself with Pastiche’s yummy cakes for one week straight.

Be sure to check out Diva’s Palace, a very hip boutique with some vintage and gorgeous in-house designs. The store front itself is beautifully decorated!

Of course, my trip included a lobster (lobstah) dinner… mine was a lady lobster. How did I know? Because she had a million black eggs in her tummy. Yeah, gross! I scooped out the eggs and ate the lobster anyway, because that’s how much I love lobsters! My 4 year old son was spooked.

So, after a week of clam chowda, Del’s lemonade, Pastiche, Italian cold cuts, and more ( when I say more, I didn’t have enough time for everything!)- I think my body’s ready for the Californian detox: fruits, smoothies, sushi, and a Korean spa! I’m already thinking about my next trip back….

PS- Be sure to check out The Roger Williams Park Zoo during the month of October. A spectacular evening display of hundreds of intricately carved  pumpkins line a trail located near a breathtaking lake. Also, Waterfire is a must see in downtown Providence!

These are the cutest damn things I’ve seen in a long while! These are  limited-edition Pupa cosmetics dolls (the ‘Puposka World è la Collezione’) from Italy.  Everything from lipgloss to eye shadow and a mirror (of course!) are compressed into these Russian dolls. There are a variety of  dolls ranging from African to Alaskan ( no, it looks nothing like Sarah Palin, thankfully!) You can buy them here, but it is an Italian website, so whip out your Berlitz book or kidnap a waiter from your local Italian restaurant when ordering. They are surprisingly inexpensive considering it’s uniqueness- they are about 11 Euros each. Actually, that’s like $100 American dollars with all the inflation? ?(I’m to lazy to convert, blah, blah, blah. )

Here ‘s the coveted Chanel Matryoshka- it’s $7,000! It’s like the price of a crappy car.
