Digging This: Lady Penelope’s Dressing Room by Christopher Peacock

This guy! Now this room is pretty as a Peacock! (Pun very intended.) Feast your eyes on this ladies dressing room in the 2014 Kips Bay Showhouse by Christopher Peacock, based on Lady Penelope, a pink, 6-wheeled Rolls Royce driving spy puppet from the 1960s UK show, Thunderbirds. This dressing room boasts pink lacquered closet doors, 24K gold hardware, pink leather-lined shelves, and a boat load of Pucci fashions! I love everything about this room, down to the Good & Plenty filled candy dish, but I think that my favorite element is the Patterson, Flynn & Martin carpet in a David Hicks geometric pattern. The avocado and pink color combo just tickles me! The vanity wall is covered in a glistening gold grasscloth by Thibaut. Kitchy Glamor at it’s finest! Happy Weekend!

Best Sundressed

At long last Mikey and I are taking a Humphrey Holiday to the UK for our 3rd anniversary next month and I’m in the market for some smart sundresses. You know, ones that I can cruise around town in feeling easy breezy but that I wouldn’t be ashamed for Princess Kate to see me in should we cross paths for tea or something. (I also don’t want to look like an LA hoochie, which can happen in my leopard print maxi’s from time to time.) Enter Boden. Where better to look for that sort of thing than a at company who’s slogan is “Great British Style”?! Upon first glance some felt a bit matronly, but as I pursued the site I envisaged Grace Kelly galavanting around in them…ok, done. Here’s just a sampling of the ones I’ve been stewing over!

            Aaand I don’t think some of these dresses would mind a trip to Palm Springs either…
