All hands on deck

A little bit dress melded with a Greek statue, a little bit Ridley Scott's alien,
and a whole lot of fun (Hussein Chalayan S2010).

Of course the obvious comparison is to these Comme Des Garcons F2007 hands,
but I'm liking the realism and twisting/grasping of the Chalayan ones much
much more.

Paddington + Liberty prints?

My husband has had a lifelong dream of dressing like Paddington bear. So, the two of us
have a fair number of duffel coats in our closet. I quite like the long toggles and flowered
liberty print insides of this Louche Kittty Cropped Duffel Jacket. Plus the weight and
length are great for this time of year when the weather can't quite make up it's mind
whether to settle on winter or spring.


I'm really digging this Botkier satchel. It's a good size, not unbelievably expensive if I can find it on sale somewhere, I like the double short and long handles, and the zips add a little bit of flair. The only thing I'm not quite sure about is the roundness.

Lady Liberty

Target's newest Go International designer collection has me dreaming of
spring with Liberty of London floral prints. Here are my favorites.

Loving this one shoulder maxi-dress.

This clutch would look fabulous for a day out with the girls.

Nothing cheers up a rainy day more than clomping in puddles with some brightly
patterned rain boots!

Or you could take this roadster for a fun jaunt about town.

There are even some cute options for the home!

You think that we connect
That the chemistry's correct
Your words walk right through my ears
Presuming I like what I hear
And now I'm stuck in the
The web you're spinning
You've got me for you prey

(Yeah) Sorry I'm not home right now
I'm walking into spiderwebs
So leave a message
And I'll call you back
A likely story, but (Yeah) leave a message
And I'll call you back


No Doubt, "Spiderwebs"

Loving this D&G dress that Victoria Beckham is wearing. So spiderwebby! I wonder if you
could do something similar with a white dress and a few pairs of fishnets.

Here's a more modestly priced alternative from Nicole Miller.

Chain Gang

Taking the chains trend to a whole new level (Lady Gaga "Telephone").
