Random notes from a head cold

Douglas Friedman Photography.

Oh hai! Wanna know how sick I am? This morning, I was prescribed Cipro (!) and cough syrup with codeine (!!!). For a head cold. That which does not kill me makes me loopy as hell. And I'm OK with that. I'm not able to write clearly (as evidenced by my 5 typos in yesterday's post), so I'll do a little aggregating...

Diane von Furstenberg has announced a rockin' collabo with Claridge's in London. She is re-designing 20 suites for the legendary hotel to be unveiled in June.

JCPenney's offered Sandra Bullock a few ideas for an Oscars dress - they're not bad.

New York magazine's The Cut blog.

Rihanna has been thievin' from my closet again.
I had planned to wear this to a Passover seder.

New York magazine.

Artist Hunt Slonem is cray cray, but I'd lurve to go shopping with him.

W magazine.

And how cool is this parquet floor in Stella McCartney's new Milan store?

I hope you feel better soon, or at least so loopy that you don't give a hoot. I bet you have a sinus infection, they don't give Cipro out for just anything....

Rhianna should lie down on those candles and let that pantsuit? dress? flying squirrel costume? go up in flames...

That floor is STUNNING. Reminds me of a Missoni textile. Yum yum yum yum.

I do have to say, though--I'm not paying the slightest attention to the actual merchandise in that photo. Doubt I'd have any different reaction in person. Don't think I would have gone with such a commanding design element in a small retail space like that.

love this quote from Slonem: “I lost a thousand things in the moving process! I was beside myself.”

I hope you feel better...I love the floor. Great idea! Riri, looks like a modern day witch in that outfit, but then who am I to say???

Chic Modern Vintage said...

Part II, @Designers Brew,yes the floor reminds me of a Missoni print. I couldn't think of it at first and the artist Hunt Slonem, is he preparing for some sort seance or something?

Raina Cox said...

Karena - It's a wood floor, either painted or stained.

The floor reminds me of a post I did long ago... let's see if I can dig it up.

Erin - I didn't even have to click on your link. When I first saw that photo, I thought of that apartment. I would lay money that McCartney floor was "inspired" by the one featured in your post.

nkp said...

Shit, I thought that was a rug! That is the best looking floor I've ever seen. Ever. Period.

And why you gotta steal my thunder, I told you, I was wearin' that green getup to this year's Seder!

I hope your feeling better sweetie, cause doped up or not, that post was Dope. Period. ;0)

Ally @ FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...
