my fashionista friend, phu put together a very cool fashion/art exhibit/show last night at the cabana club in hollyweird. she did a great job parodying the money-luvin crowd and an even more impressive job making reconstructed clothes out of thrift store finds and target bags for her one of a kind zoe winston line. made for us, by...phu.

I love the sunglasses. In the past I've always made the decision to spend 1/2 my rent money on sunglasses rather than on my, well, rent. I have several favortie pairs of Chanels, Dior and a great pair of Chloe with some Ralph Lauren, Ray-Ban and Betsey Johnson thrown in for good measure. Lately though, I've been more interested in my $5 aviators that I picked up at the Fairfax flea market. What's great about them is they are chic and classic (like a Michael Kors) but I can lose them, break them, sit on them, throw them out and still go and pick up a brand new pair for next to nothing. It's the great sunglass debate. what's your stance?

my family is obsessed with the food network. even my sister who lives in switzerland gets her daily fix of paula deen and the gang. when my dad is home in the daytime, he doesn't miss a second of mario batali. as a result, we've been to all of the batali restaurants in new york. recently the big red MB opened up his first west coast venture, mozza. being the pizza and batali fan I am, I was dying to pull a hard to get rez. last night I had that opportunity. mozza, located on highland off melrose looks similarly to batali's new york joints with the simple bold colors of tuscany and a killer wine selection. the eggplant companata and marinated peppers were a great start and the margherita pizza (despite the 12 other more fanciful pizza concoctions) was buttery and yummy and filled with basil-y goodness. a glass of their slightly overpriced red was a perfect accompaniment. buon appetito!

I had a fab time down in tampa with the home shopping network and even got to meet some very interesting and recognizable business folk. I happened to appear after master chef wolfgang puck several times so we would run into each other in the halls. that man is made of good energy and vibes (as S. says). no wonder he is a culinary whiz cum worldwide personality. also on the list of amazing star sightings was none other than ken paves, ruler of jessica simpson's locks as well as so many other celebs. he did a line of clip ons with ms. simpson and was doing an HSN special for them annnnd staying in the same hotel as moi. I approached him and the entourage at lunch by the pool and asked for a photo for my blog. I seriously asked for a photo from this guy. while he was eating. for my blog. only a die hard trendster would get super psyched over a hairstylist. what a dork I am. I did however, get the shot.
