In 1998, TIME magazine ran an article about porn going mainstream. Well, has it ever!  There are examples of the ho-ification of America everywhere: Stripper classes at your local gym,  The Girls Next Door, and the trend of pseudo-celebrities “accidentally” losing their sex tapes at strategic points in their career. Wikipedia actually has an entry that lists pornstars that have appeared in mainstream movies. Bondage/Bandage style began making a comeback a few years ago with the now-everywhere Herve Leger bandage dress. Between stripper heels, AKA last years YSL tribute sandal, this … [Read more...]

Lucite Shelves

I have been loving the idea of lucite shelving lately.... Check out these cool pics. So... a friend of mine asked me to help him set up his new apartment. This guy has a sneaker collection of over 100 pairs, so I thought it would be cool to mount them all on lucite shelves as an art installation in his bedroom. Since there is no way they will fit into any type of closet and he has shoe racks out everywhere, might as well. Any thoughts? … [Read more...]

Real Housewives – Jill’s Apartment

Maurice Villency Closing- Details

Since so many of you were interested in the reported 70% discounts at the MV flagship on 57th and 3rd Avenue, I did some more investigating. First off, most of the stuff is not 70% off. A lot of the big pieces of furniture were discounted %20, which brings many of them in at over or just under $10 G's. Sets of 6 chairs were discounted as well. Most of them ranging between $7,000 and $9,000. The chairs below are made of carbon. Detail shot: The real place to "save" is in the accessory section, everything was 30% and 50% off. The mid-height vases were $300, see my post on Big … [Read more...]

April Fools?

Apparently, I am not the only one who was hoping that this was a sick April Fool's joke. We were still sniffling over our first month without Domino, and then our one solace was removed from the web! All those pictures!! Organized so beautifully! But there is hope..... flickr. Someone has created the Domino Magazine Files Pool. Also, check out the flickr photo stream of fellow blogger Habitually Chic. Plus, Elements of Style posted this week about her Design Crush, Photographer Paul Costello. As I looked through his site, I recognized so many of his pictures as some of my favorites … [Read more...]
