Shamelessly Romantic, Sometimes Practical ... Again and Then Again


If you're really lucky, you might have a friend like Judith. She has helped me through every crisis and saved trinkets and pages too. She worked on this newsletter and sent me a copy a few weeks ago.

I still love kraft paper and what you can do with it. It was a theme then, kraft boxes drowning in decadent amounts of white tulle bows. Gift boxes wrapped in kraft and then silk (faux, of course) flowers hot glued.

In the last week I won an artisan-crafted Geoffrey Beene book (fold-out photos assembled in storyboard fashion from a collector) from the amazingly wonderful OnThisDayInFashion.com and then last night the email from the LA Times Style Section informing me that I'd won a shopping spree at Cameron Silver's Decades pop-up in Brentwood. Two wins in one week have left me gushing and deliriously happy.

There's a touch of irony in the shopping spree ... Decades carries many of the designers I used to sell in my own shops, much from one or another of Charles' stores.

Happiness redux.

Here's the information on the Decades Pop-Up Shop in Brentwood from the LA Times Style Section:


After seeing the recent success of his Pop-Up shops in New York and Chicago and the debut of his first e-commerce site, Christos Garkinos is now bringing the magic of DecadesTwo.1 closer to home with a four-day shopping event at Post26 at the Brentwood Country Mart.


Shoes and accessories from Chanel, Chloé, Balenciaga, Christian Louboutin, Prada, Gucci and more will be sold at up to 80% off retail. Shoppers can also complement their purchase with the latest contemporary wares from Post26.
The four-day shopping event begins on November 11th with an exclusive VIP cocktail shopping reception. The following days on November 12 and 13, the pop-up shop will be open to the public with the retailer’s infamous $150 shoe sale on Sunday November 14. Inventory will be replenished daily, so plan to make multiple visits.
