First Snow 2009

The no-flash option on my camera makes the snowflakes look like streamers.  I’m not sure if I’m celebrating tonight, though.


Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen Celebrate Fashion’s Night Out @ Barneys

Promoting the launch of their new mens line for The Row, these two darlings served drinks on the 3rd floor of the men’s department at Barneys as part of the greater festivities that comprised Fashion’s Night Out.  Oh how I wish I had been there…these two girls are totally my style icons…

We go for the animals:
