My Favorite Things in 2009

Julie Andrews sang about “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” as some of her favorite things; I must admit that my faves are a little less esoteric and a little more materialistic than Ms. Andrews’, but here are the top 10 things I fell in love with this year – please don’t hold it against me!

  1. My Kindle; I love to read and carrying my library with me wherever I go is an absolute treat.
  2. The heart-stopping sparkling diamond jewelry at Kwiat.
  3. Rosewood Mayakoba, Riviera Maya, Mexico – hands down, one of the most wonderful resort experiences I’ve ever had and the folks at Travel&Leisure agree too!
  4. My YSL Gold Tribute Shoes; they’re killer but they make my legs look great.
  5. Frozen yogurt with lychees and almonds at Pinkberry.
  6. Cashmere leggings from Kier+J – they’re oh so warm and definitely downtown hipster chic.
  7. Falafel sandwiches from Maoz Vegetarian - good quality and great prices.
  8. Marie Jasmin’s SWEAT Cardio Sculpt classes at Equinox are fabulous; she’s a wonderful trainer and whipped my butt into shape this year.
  9. I’ve been dreaming about owning one of Kristen Farrell’s Mystical Talon pendants, they’re absolutely to die for!
  10. I fell in love with Mara Hoffman’s beautifully patterned clothes, bathing suits and beach coverups.

I’d love to hear what some of your favorite things are  … LMK.

Happy New Year!!!!

London Calling …


Topshop SoHo

Topshop SoHo

Kate Moss’ much anticipated Topshop opens today in SoHo. By all accounts, having Topshop in NYC will help to satisfy the hefty palets of New York’s Recessionistas.  Their British counterparts are dumbfounded by the mania surrounding the opening of what many consider to be a mid-budget fast-fashion chain store that can be found on most London high streets. Young fashionistas on this side of the pond , however, are clamoring to buy the unique London street clothes the waif-ish Moss and her designs for the store have helped to make more popular than ever.  Just a little FYI, a credible UK source told me that the prices in the US will be higher than in the UK.

Of course the queues will be long (i.e., lines for those of you not up on your key British phrases), with this kind of hype what else do you expect?  But, rumor has it that Pinkberry will be served to those waiting in line.  Queue up I say!

Topshop, 478 Broadway btwn Broome & Grand.
