Happy 2012!! An image by Confetti System seemed the most appropriate for tonight. Here’s to a hopeful new year!

The House that Jack Built hosted the best holiday party at Candelaria last week. They turned the place into a mini forest filled with some of the biggest christmas trees in Paris, with a special holiday cocktail menu of egg nog and other holiday creations, mini chocolate caramel christmas trees, snowflake cookies and gingerbread house cakes,(made by some of the best pastry chefs in town) and as usual they looked AMAZING! The theme of the evening was a “Luminescent Confetti-ed Splendor” I loved their hair and headpieces! Plus I was happy to see Julie from Confetti System stop by while in town, and finally see her garland in the space in person, on the perfect night too. These guys have made yet another great video of the event so you can see for yourself.
Looking forward to picking up the new A Magazine currated by Rodarte!Love that surfboard.
Things I’ve had my eye on aside from that entire Raquel Allegra collection.. Cosmic Wonder trench coat, orange mug, triangle socks, Eastpack Kris Van Assche backpack, crazy patterned knit socks, APC army shirt dress, Vanessa Bruno dress, Saskia Diez white wood hair band, A Détacher knit hat, Deyrolle posters book, Carven sweater, Hansel from Basel knit tote, Jane Birken basket, furry hat like this one– preferably fake fur or definitely vintage, a crazy cosby style sweater from MNZ, Loeffler Randall black boots, Araks yellow undergarments, Old Field Farm dark amber maple syrup from this shop.
So in love with this Raquel Allegra Ray collection even though it is likely on sale somewhere in LA right now (where I am missing it) since it was a F/W 11 collection. Wish this was my winter wardrobe.
Finding this video made my week!! Why hadn’t I seen it sooo long ago I don’t know. Among a million other feelings it creates like wanting to be on a winter adventure like this and be part of this band of friends, it sets a perfect wintery mood and definitely lifts the spirits. Love the surmounting feeling of the song, as always another beautiful video from this band.

My very dearest and super talented friend in LA Lili has some amazing neighbors who she got together with recently to create and style a beautiful Harvest Moon celebration. I wish I could have been there it looks like it was so much fun!! Love the attention to every beautiful detail.
Take a look at the enchanting film, it is super beautiful and I love the song Lili picked for it, couldn’t be more perfect. Can’t believe she filmed this on her iphone!
Harvest Moon was created by Lili Cuzor, Lauren Spencer King and Kelly Cuadra and was photographed by Lili Cuzor and Siena Perez del Campo. Short film by Lili Cuzor. Beautiful Harvest Moon card by Spencer Studio.
See more on Lili’s and Lauren’s blogs. Can’t wait to see what these talented ladies do next.
Also! There are so many amazing sales happening in parts of the world where I wish I could be this weekend. In LA, Beatrice is organizing a sale with her shoes and works by Hadley Holiday, among many other talented people. In NY there are several sales to look forward to. Wish I could be there to check them out!
