My closest friends are all bonkers.  The most amazing women in the world are bonkers.  I too am a bit bonkers.

Thank goodness Lula has once again saluted those who are not only beautiful, but bonkers as well. These scans come from the latest issue of Lula magazine featured under the title “A Perfect Mess.”  Norwegian illustrators Jonas Lofgren/Bildmekanik bring a twist to this season’s best spring looks by drawing our favorite women into our favorite designers.  This is why Lula is absolutely the best magazine on the rack.  They take a reader’s dreams and put it on paper.

M&M

January 27, 2009

Merci beaucoup to Stefani for sending me this Louis Vuitton mini-film of M&M: Marc & Madonna [nice touch SG].  My blog friend Diabolina appears to be a fan as well.  We were at the Figaro Bistro just last week and I had the most delicious filet mignon topped with foie gras.  Don’t even get me started on the heirloom tomatoes with goat cheesecake we ate. Just need a drink?  Try their raspberry mojito.  Yummy!

Greetings from San Francisco

As promised, here are some photos from my trip to San Francisco.  My boyfriend and I were  invited to spend the new year with my sister and her fiance in their new home outside the city. Of course we were in SF every day, either shopping or having vegetarian delights!  Here are some of my favorite images:

Top to Bottom:

1. Vintage Gucci & Louis Vuitton line the front cases in this resale vintage store called Static [on Haight].  They had a meanie shop girl, who got mad at me when I snapped this photo and acted like a real jerk!  I will try to forget her bad attitude as they have some great clothes, shoes and bags.

2.  Isn’t that an amazing sheep’s wool jacket? It was in the window of a Goodwill, which I spotted while in the front seat of my sister’s car.  I thought, how could that still be there?  We parked, I went inside and looked at the price tag – $55! No thank you Goodwill.

3.  My boyfriend models his Cheap Monday skinny jeans while contemplating some vintage moccasins.  I wish he had got them.

4.  I have no idea who this girl is, but she had my kind of attitude!  When we stopped for the countdown to New Years we saw her with some friends and she was amazing.  I loved her outfit which was equally matched by an amazing personality.  We counted down from 10 for about a half hour! 10-9-8-7 over and over.

5.  Gianco Ferre vintage at Wasteland.  $125 and not in my shopping bag, though I really loved it.

6.  Alexis Bittar, how do I love thee!  This was on display at the de Young Museum.  From my knowledge of his jewelry, this is from his Ms. Havisham collection for sure. D-I-E

This new photo [shot by my fave Steven Meisel] of Madonna for Louis Vuitton makes me feel a tiny bit better. Thank you Marc Jacobs!

“I still feel it looks like beautiful, gorgeous Madonna,” Jacobs said about the images. [more at WWD]

Irina on Marc

May 7, 2008

In February I caught the premiere of Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton on the Sundance Channel and absolutely loved it! I know Marc has been going through a tough time in the media lately, so please rent this film to rekindle the love you should have never abandoned. Here is one of my favorite moments from the film. Enjoy Irina Lazareanu’s musing on Marc.

P.S. We have another interesting clip from the film, but it can wait for another day.
