Have you guys seen this mini documentary about J.Crew going to Italy?  I fall more and more in love with J.Crew every single day.  Classic.  Perfect.

Kristen and Andrew made sure to personalize their wedding – with a “B” that is.  Loving the way their initial floated through the theme of the wedding.  So cute!

There were a wide range of white gowns at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards 2011.

Amy Adams wore a curve-hugging Hervé L. Leroux, Winona Ryder wore a classic A-line Alberta Ferretti, and a very-pregnant Natalie Portman wore Azzaro.

That Perfect Market: Epicure Miami Beach

Here in Miami, perfect food markets are few and far between.  The closest we get to a specialty market is Whole Foods – which by the way, was HUGE, when they first made their may to our shopping centers a few years ago.  But one Miami tradition that has continued to shine, Epicure Market.  Since 1945, this perfect little food market has had the best of meats, produce, a fab bakery, and prepared foods.

I go into Epicure with a clear head and a budget.  Though completely pricey, a container with an Epicure label does not sit in your refrigerator half empty, ever.  If you are ever in Miami Beach, you must go to Epicure – try the tuna and the matzoh ball soup.  You can thank me later.

I love, love, love this photo.  It reminds me of the Adventures of Peter Pan.  I love fairytale design concepts.  A few years back, the master of fanciful store displays, Anthropologie, put together a Princess and The Pea bed set-up, and I was equally smitten.
