A huge thanks to the editors at Ocean Home magazine for including great shots of my jewelry in the December/January issue. My Marie Antoinette ring has a page all to itself!

Anyone who gets this ring for the holidays will be a happy lady!

My Marie Antoinette earrings and one-of-a-kind, rose-quartz “seashell” ring are featured too.

The earrings are in the lower right corner and the ring is in the upper left.

You can follow Ocean Home on Twitter here.

Here’s what I had on the blog this week:

Monday’s post happened to include this 2011 photo of me in a vintage Moschino dress I got from gorgeous Cherie at Shrimpton Couture.

Click for my original post.

Two days later, Cherie spotted model Behati Prinsloo wearing the same dress at the afterparty for the Victoria’s Secret runway show!

I can’t believe I’m saying this about a 5’10” woman who is young enough to be my daughter but … I wore it better! You don’t wear a dress like that only to flip your hair and do standard “sexy pose.” It’s a joke outfit, for Victoria’s sake! Look like you’re having a laugh.

Even with sexy pose, that dress blows away what appeared on the Victoria’s Secret runway. What’s with all the crap they stick on the models’ backs? Maybe someone has a furniture fetish. I’m pretty sure that if this gal got on all fours, we could use her for a coffee table.

Rihanna, who performed at the show, was the best-dressed one on the runway.

Rihanna rocks out in black and pearls.

Pearls and a garter belt? Hot. Walking tabletop? Not so much.

    Girl, you look one million times ten to the power of infinity better in that frock than the VS model. That is all.

    Just started reading your blog and love it. That dress looks great on you!

  5. amazing!! Congrats on the Mag press and you def wore it better! You are dead on about the wit factor!

  6. Congrats on the Ocean Home feature! Your Marie Antoinette ring deserves at least an entire magazine to itself, plus a stadium show, parades, fireworks and a theme song.

    Re: the Moschino dress – exactly! Given cultural immersion, developing the perspective necessary to striking that just-right balance can take time.

    I hadn’t seen that mag. feature yet! Incredible! Seriously great!!!
    Can’t believe that chick stole your dress. Bitch.

  8. The slogan holds true on the model; you wear the slogan with a wink and a smile . . . Love the Marie earrings in partic. . .
