busy, but not TOO busy to update my poor blog!



took a quick trip to chilly montreal for thanksgiving weekend (pretty, but areas look like Wicker Park) , and didn't really do any shopping... except got a skirt at Reborn (pictures later)...


ate some yummy food. this is a montreal-style bagel... which is different from a nyc style bagel... they are just different.. i can't say which one is 'better'... but the montreal style is probably easier to eat.. the outside is crispy as opposed to 'chewy' (so when you take a bite, the cream cheese doesn't go squishing out the other end) and the whole thing is a bit smaller.


we stayed at a pretty swanky hotel that was a pretty good deal.



oh and the cutest, chubby squirrel!!

glad to be back in nyc, though.

new jacket


for my birthday, i got a great winter jacket. Not one that i would buy myself, which makes it extra perfect. Moncler, with raccoon fur... sorry animal lovers... at least it isn't a poor fox...although i think that raccoons are just as cute and tortured/killed in the same horrific ways... same thing with the down feather insides... ugh. i'm feeling pretty bad now.

16 jackies



i am a huge fan of andy warhol... and it is such a treat to see works that are in private collection, and never viewed in public before... it's truly exciting... and the price! (it sold at auction for $15.6 million...)

bags

i am looking for a 'cross-body' bag... whatever they are called. My right shoulder hurts constantly from my shoulder bags... any suggestions? I came across The Bag Snob which is a great resource for finding out the coolest/newest bags.


these ones by Jean Paul Gaultier are the closest to what i want... simple and soft.

I really do like this ann demuelemeester bag though, not a 'cross-body' bag, but it looks so light and soft... and i would really like more of her stuff!!!

first look at the new flagship store... crazy packed... and everyone is buying! The wonderwall stuff, of course, looks great.

lunch at Oms/b

a yummy lunch... too bad it is kind of on the expensive side (for onigiri)... seems like it is close to home... but somewhat inconvenient to get to.... tasty though!!
