Hot Lips and the Girls Party All Night Long...

In celebration of Suzy's 40th birthday party, all the girls came out... and the lips, otherwise known as Suzy's mascot!  It was an event to remember!  A lovely group of ladies all in their 40's, or close to it, looking hot and sexy, stopping traffic and getting applause from the 20-30 something crowd for raising the roof on an otherwise calm restaurant.
    Hey Ladies, we still got it!
    I for one never intend to loose it!

As you can see, a lovely group of ladies.  We met up at Weather Up on Duane Street in Tribeca, where we started with drinks and presents, and then headed up to SoHo to Cafe Falai.

As you can see I'm happily sporting my new vintage Valentino jacket, finally, and this lovely Philip Lim silk shirt.     The manager at Cafe Falai was so sweet, they helped Suzy cut the cake, and ordered a bottle of wine on the house.  Of course, when we couldn&#…

Projects, Projects, Projects!!! I need more energy!!!

Intro to Fashion : Junior Reading List
Friday is always fabulous because it is the last day of the week, and yet the beginning of the weekend.  I always look forward to sleeping in on the weekend!  Oh but to juggle it all!  Yes, life is busy here, at Lady Warfield's Brooklyn Hideaway. Just so busy busy busy!

I'm in the midst of prepping for a job that will come up in the spring!  While I'm still very sad about the loss of a fabulous job that came my way then mysteriously evaporated,  I'm very excited about this new adventure. I will be teaching Intro to Fashion to 4th and 5th graders at our local elementary school.   The challenge for me is to make sure I have the content targeted for their age... not mine!  LOL.   But I plan on having guest speakers as well, which will really be fun for them, as well as excitting projects, and lots of talks on fashion, trends and style.  Really, I want to help them understand the most important thing is to be just yourself, and be com…

It's Houndstooth, Honey! I Just Love Vintage Valentino!

I do adore a fitted blazer when I find one!   And I have been looking for some time.   This precious piece was acquired at Olive's Very Vintage down on Court Street in Carroll Gardens.  I just love the quality, and the detail in the buttons. And, yes, it's vintage Valentino.  To die for, Darlings, just to die for!!!
I'm also wearing this necklace I picked up online from Leviticus Jewelry. Massively gorgeous Lion!  ROAR!!!  I picked up two other pieces as well.  Lovely dangly dagger earrings, and gorgeously painful bear.

Loads of love,  From the freezing depths of Brooklyn.

As the snow falls down around me, I long for those long hot summer days...

This morning, after a weeks worth of errands and boring duties that involved phone calls and appointments, I finally am able for some precious me time.  That is to say, I finally have time to carve out 2 hours for a bit of writing.   I'm torn because I want to post, but I have to focus on my book.   So I'm sitting away from my home distractions in Starbucks, preparing to write, when I find myself gazing out the window at the snow falling down, and absently looking through folders on my desktop, clicking randomly on photos I took over the summer.   That's when I came across this set.

Sometime in August, I think, we had visiting friends (yes the Sullivans), and we made this really typical and yummy summer meal.   My contribution was this Tomatoe Tart.   I don't have the recipe on me, but if you want, you can email me, or leave a comment, and I'll share it when I get home.

If you didn't know it already, I follow recipes to the "T".  I guess, even th…

It's Never Too Late for Resolutions

Ah, well it's that time of year again... to sit down and think of some good New Year Resolutions. I think I skipped it last year, because I was coming off of a hard year in 2009. But I'm ready. Thankfully I've already started some of them, but I think it's time to get serious. I mix it up with easy things and hard things. So here's my list, in no particular order of importance.

1. Networking. Get out there more in my blog community. This means, it's time to go back and do some of the early things I did on my first blog, when I networked. Oh yeah... Networking. You know, leave comments, emails, read other posts, offer up something interesting.

2. Blog more consistently... again. Yeah.. I go on and off. Sometimes I do it more regularly and sometimes less so. I started this blog as a way to explore my writing, and other aspects of my creativity. So, it's time to get back into it. That is, unless something else comes up, and I have less time.…
