My God, she was perfect.
The little black dress, the double-strand pearls. They’re classics, and if you ever wondered why, this photo is your answer.

Lovely.

Lovely.

Random, just completely random

The title of this post says it all, people. No particular theme or topic here. Maybe chugging eggnog lattes like they’re going out of style is taking a toll…

Anyway.

Patterned tights have been on my mind lately. (I’m always thinking deep thoughts.) After watching the Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2012 show (fab-u-lous) on Monday and seeing this photo, I’m sold.

As you might know, I like me a French 75. A cocktail with gin and champagne? What could be better?! In my experience, not a lot of people are familiar, though, so I thought I’d share this recipe. 

Until this photo, I’d always considered my Essie Turquoise and Caicos nail polish to be a summer color. Must buy glittery clear coat ASAP.

Only 17 days left until Christmas, y’all! I pride myself on my gift wrapping abilities, but I know I don’t look this chic while doing it. (Grace Kelly could make nail biting look elegant, I swear.)

OK. As you were.

Isn’t she gorgeous?
None of Grace Kelly’s features are remarkable like, say, Elizabeth Taylor’s violet eyes, but together they form one of the most unforgettable faces to ever appear on the silver screen.
While reading “Life: Remembering Grace,” recently, I came across an interesting tidbit. When he was still a junior senator, John F. Kennedy came to Howell Conant, Kelly’s friend and portraitist, with an unusual request. He asked Conant to photograph him from every imaginable angle.
Kennedy then studied the photos to learn which were his good angles and which were unflattering. Conant’s advice to Kennedy and Kelly was the same: never be photographed looking straight at the camera− he because his eyes were set too close together, she because her of her square jaw.
Were Grace Kelly alive, she would be 82 today.
