Whoa. Von Furstenberg's mirror is too cool.

That's it! You must get a caftan. As you progress on your home reno, you can post photos of the glamorous you.

Mmmm, I like old time-y. And I really like-y Ms. Moreau's sofa. I agree with Susie, a caftan-clad you would be sooo glam posing in and amongst your ostrich papered, smoked glass, groovy-vibed abode!

Susie and NKP - I already own several. I collect vintage ones. ;)

Those names are the eptiome of chic, hands-down. I love the pic of KJL.

How did I not know Gloria Vanderbilt was the Silver Fox's mother?!?

In love with that plant in the picture with Yves St. Laurent.

When we retire to Palm Springs I plan on wearing nothing other than caftans!

I can totally see you in a caftan. I have alwys wanted one, even before the post-baby gut that I own. I had NO idea Cooper's mom was Gloria!

sherri said...

oh - and lest I forget - have a BLAST on your trip!

holy god that's a good roundup. I could never ever ever pick a favorite. I mean, Gloria gave me the silver fox but Diane, oh, Diane, everything she makes was made for me. Seriously, you should see all the wrap dresses in my closet.

so cool... but WTF with the sheep??

Does DVF make caftans? That would be heavenly.

YSL is killa!

Jill said...

I just adore DVF! And I'm lusting for the caftan. My husband makes fun of my caftan addiction.

Diane von Furstenbeerg's facial cleansing or makeup applying technique is rather unique. I might try the mirror perching myself to see the benefit!!
