With Love, From Japan

photos by Koko Quiza

My other half traveled to Nagoya and Toyota City, Japan for a conference and brought me back goodies. In addition to the sweets, (with really beautiful packaging) I got a hand carved Geisha doll and Vogue Japan with Naomi gracing the cover. I don't have to understand Japanese to appreciate the beauty in between these pages. 

I am happy that he made it back safely, and I will continue to keep Japan and its people in my prayers throughout their recovery.

Hidden Jewel

photos by koko quiza

I wore my newest and (favorite) skirt as a dress the other day to to the cocktail reception of the Bill Cunningham New York film. It's vintage, and since there were no tags present I will guess that it is circa 60's. This is my first time posting about items in my closet, but a piece this precious certainly deserves a bit of attention.

Pivotal Pre-Order

We all are anxiously awaiting the arrival of designer Ashley Scott's Drapes Pivotal collection. This time, she's tried her hand in different construction methods. She's incorporated materials such as pyrite and metal. She's expanded her range of headpieces. The growth in her line is irrefutable and I can't wait to she what she does next............

7thMarket+Ashley Drapes+Tres Awesome=Elle Global Street Chic

It was because of the lovely Emma Arnold of Tres Awesome that my Drapes and I ended up on the front page of It was really a surreal moment to click on the site and see this tiny version of myself standing next to all of these super chic women from around the world. 

These are the earrings I was wearing in my photo. They are Zena Tassels from the Archive Collection. Priced at 64 dollars, it is impossible that you go one season more without them.
