These are a few of my favorite things…

Joan Collins in my wedding band, and another ring I wear daily.

Hello! I hope you all had a lovely holiday. I’ve been holed up with a really bad cold. I’ve got a touch of cabin fever and a bad case of Breaking Bad addiction (best show ever). Anyway, right before Hanukkah, I found this little book called 50 Shades at Maison 24. I thought it was such an adorable book to gift someone, it’s all different celebrities of yore wearing sunglasses, matched with quotes from them about identity. Upon closer inspection, I’ve realized some of the quotes are eh and make no sense within the book. The best one is from Jack Nicholson : “With my sunglasses I’m  Jack Nicholson, without them I’m fat and 60.” But anyway, its still really cute, and a great hostess gift. The holidays are a time of warmth and family, but they are also a time for blatant materialism. And so I bring you “A few of my favorite things” as worn by various famous faces. These are things on my nightstand, that go in and out of the rotation daily, and that I love.

Julie Christie in a special black and rose gold Gracelette. HERE.

Sophia Lauren wears a vintage costume earring  my aunt lent me years ago. She might see this and want them back! 

Catherine Deneuve wears a necklace my grandmother got me for my birthday when I was a teenager. 

Marianne Faithful in a Repossi ring. HERE.

Faye Dunaway wears my leather SUPER sunglasses. HERE.

Terry Savalas in an oxblood angora hat by Club Monaco. HERE.

Jack Nicholson smokes my favorite hot pink lipstick. 

Melina Mercouri in my Cape Cod watch.
