How old do I have to be before I can dress like this daily without it being an unbelievable reverse case of 'mutton-dressed-as-lamb'? (Answer: "Victoria Beckham.")

One thing I really love is personal style 'secrets' -- like when you read in a magazine or Into the Gloss or whatever and Sophia Coppola is offering little nuggets of wisdom that make no sense like "I rub lemon juice on my face each night before bed, and I never wear blue because it makes your veins look prominent and I only use Swedish egg white soap to remove my eye makeup" and it's like a weird glimpse into their twisted psyche. But what I really love is when that life advice and hard-earned 'secrets' to style are served up by icons in a bullet-pointed list of little witty declarative Oscar Wilde bons mots. When I was a kid, I had this book, which I used to read and re-read and love without even understanding the diva culture it was mocking:
Here's an awesome post of excerpts from it -- magnifique! Simon Doonan has good ones too -- listen up girls! Thongs are over and tattoos are trying too hard!
So courtesy of this girl's blog, here's a fab alphabetical list from Marlene Dietrich. My personal favorites:

K - Kisses

Don't waste them. But don't count them.

L - Lukewarm

When this adjective applies to your feelings, stop feeling whatever you are feeling.

M - Make-up

Too bad most of us need it.

N - Nail Polish

Dark nail polish is vulgar.

P - Pants

In Texas when you say that a man is beautiful or handsome, you simply say: "His pants fit him."

Ok, Rodarte for Opening Ceremony just captured my imagination. In addition to nude lace trousers (above) there are:
Buttonhole-peeper cotton Weimar tights,

Paisley carpetbagger Durango ankle boots,

And a tubular belt bag. Color me impressed.

Right now I'm real interested in:

dainty golden rings

weird two-layer manicures

bullet boobs

Nick Offerman

and riding breeches, the big floppy-sided kind like on the Vintage Vixen.

Also, right now, really into deep Etsying, I go on epic spirit quests on Etsy and come out the other side with stuff like this:

A vintage charm bracelet with Expressionistic depictions of the sins forbidden by each of the Ten Commandments. It's only $15, maybe I need it? The Ninth Commandment, the one about bearing false witness, is missing, which is too bad, because I'd really like to see what a depiction of someone 'bearing false witness' would be like.

Combination Out With The Old and Spring Cleaning, here's every image that I saved for my blog, but didn't use for it, in 2010.

You slags like Lula magazine? Sure you do, it's cute and stuff! I've just placed issues #3 (Karen Elson in a tree), #5 (K.Dunst is a sweetie pie pie), #6 (Siri Tollerod doing Daisies) and #7 (Audrey Marnay is a witch!) up for sale on eBay, so if you're into that kind of thing, you can buy one from me and help a sister out.
