A pool side fashion show was such a hit!
Oh so perfect weather for a nice outdoor event
Now let’s check out her jaw dropping dresses.
Ines Di Santo wedding gowns are always amazing. Always really high glam, really luxurious. But what I love the most about this season is the IN-FREAKING-CREDIBLE fabrics and detailing that she used. With European silks, embroidery, fabric rosettes, beading and trims…every design is a total work of art.
Gorgeous from EVERY angle, right?

I had the honor of meeting Wolfgang and got his autograph. He even gave me a bottle of champagne as a gift which I put into my wine collection. What a sweet guy! One of these days, I’m going to make some food with his recipe and open that bottle of champagne. Thanks Mr.Puck!

Wolfgang & Myself… One of the sweetest chefs I’ve ever met. Years ago, at Spago restaurant, he also came by my table to greet and give us a free appetizer. He’s a generous guy indeed.

Don’t get freaked out—they’re supposed to be wearing those maid outfits. L.A’s first “cosplay” cafe pays homage to the most extreme Japanese fashion: people who wear costumes all the time. Equal parts tea room, boutique and art space, Royal/T in Culver City, Calif. Royal/T is a Japanese pop world brimming with manga, CDs, accessories and various kawaii tchotchkes. And yes, there’s high tea and desserts to go with the French-maid servers.
With spectacular architecture and Susan Hancock’s playful and sophisticated art collection as a backdrop, Royal/T is a celebration of space that offers a truly dramatic and unique setting for parties and events.
An Exhibition Celebrating 35 Years of Hello Kitty, I was looking forward to a quiet affair with sweet scones and chamomile milk tea.
Not surprised that Paris Hilton was a Hello Kitty FAN =)
High tea set. I couldn’t eat the precious cookie though.
