Barneys NYC seems to be on my mind this week!!!

I'm wild about The Fashion Chef & apparently so is Barneys!!!

Charlotte Neuville has taken her creative genius 
from clothes to cakes
Barneys is the place to find these 
gorgeous "2012 Electric Holiday" goodies!!!

Take a look at my Huffington Post piece & read
about Charlotte's "next act"!!!!

And remember ...
we all have at least one more "act" in us!!!

This is one of those sad & sorrowful stories .....
that has a fabulous ending!!!
 
Every "accessorator supreme" knows that Christmas 2012
is all about the "fashionable collaboration" 
between Barneys & the Walt Disney Company ...
 
Well, I have been waiting breathlessly to get my hands on
the delightful & divine 
featured in Barneys holiday ads!!!
 
Sooooo, I raced uptown to Barneys last Thursday,
ahead of the crowds .... I thought,
but low & behold I was told they was gone!!!
 
"Impossible" I said ...
"No" said the charming salesman ...
"What happened???" I moaned!!!
"They've all been recalled" he announced!!!
"WHAT????"
"Yep, the ears fell off!!!!"
 
I was désole .... 
I rushed downstairs, out the door,
grabbed my Iphone, 
& called my fabulous fashion friend WR in disbelief!!!
 
"Breath deeply"he said ...
"We'll discuss it tonight at dinner!!"
 
So, I sadly trugged home .....
beyond bereft!!!
 
7PM brought a knock on the door .....
the divine and dapper WR & MK  arrived for dinner
with GUESS WHAT???
The impossible .... MY SNOW GLOBE!!!!
 
The moral of the story is ...
"Fabulous Fashion Friends" are a "must-have" ...
especially with a great Rolladex!!!

 

Isn't it divine .....
"Hey, don' t touch the ears!!!!"
