• Tell Your Friends

Well aren’t I a little rebel. Just because I’m a little preppy doesn’t mean that I’m a prude. And yes, I do have a membership at a country club….a country club for filthy rich, rebellious and extremely fashion-forward intellectuals, not accepting applications right now. Or ever. All full. Sorry.

I drink Old Fashioneds while sitting in my perfectly worn Chesterfield, smoking Virginia Slims, ironically of course. I read Sartre and Nietzsche, and prefer European men and purebred dogs (Weimaraners, yes). I need modern twists on traditional forms — dark and sinewy shapes, and patterns that are unexpected and contrast perfectly against each other. I’m not playful but I am sardonic. I’m not girly, but I am sexy. I’m cosmopolitan, but I wouldn’t be caught drinking one….please, 2002 called and they want their fruity chick drink back.

(Thanks to Christopher Kane’s spring 2011 line for the inspiration.)

    So… is this oh so nose up in the air supposed to impress us? I get so tired of the pretense in TV and online. This isn't new and I am tired of the same old decorating tips being put out there with a garrish flair. Can we get Chris Madden back?

    Emily — loved the aubergine walls in your man-tique/cozy chic episode yesterday. With the light botanical curtains, and wood cornices, such a great, earthy look!

    No Secrets From a Stylist the past few weeks on Saturday nights. New Design Star winner ("Great Rooms" with Meg) has a show on instead. WHAT DID YOU DO WITH EMILY HENDERSON AND WHEN WILL SHE BE BACK, HGTV?
