I love love love Viktor & Rolf ! Check out this multi -layered coat that must weigh more than a fat 6th grader. It reminds me of those nesting Russian dolls that I love dearly. The use of stiff tulle still echoes through this season. Check out the gown in the second photo- you could totally hip-check the crap out someone with minimal effort. I like that. Victor and Rolf seem like the kind of dudes that want you to touch their monkey. I mean every episode of  ‘Sprockets’ is probably on their iPod touch. With that being said, Victor & Rolf can do wrong in my book!

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.

These are my picks from Brooklyn store, Fred Flare, this month:


-A Hostess cupcake coin purse for the Hostess with the Mostest! 

-A gold retainer necklace to remind you of your nerdy days in High School.

-A tape roll full of Babushkas, just because.

-Panda ear buds for the violent , yet cuddly site of you.(and me)

-Tulip adapter cords to make all your electronic wires look purdy.

-A glass water bottle perfect for the dinner table. Just keep a mental note its glass, not plastic !


Most of these items are under $50. Except the gold retainer necklace- it’s slightly more.
