Tiffany’s in London


It’s not the Crown Jewels but it is Tiffany&Co. The newest location is in the Westfield Shopping Centre in London. Tiffany&Co., a leader in premier jewelry, you’ll find the most elegant and vintage inspired pieces from designers like Elsa Peretti and Paloma Picasso that tell a timeless tale. Set in The Village which only houses top labels, crystal chandeliers, double-sized shopping windows and a champagne bar will not only enhance your shopping experience but will make it a memorable one.

So Who Will Dress The First Family?


Designed by Marc Bouwer, kind of matchy matchy for me but it’s probably the best move since this is such a big day for America. I do love the sketches of the dresses for Malia and Sasha. I like that they are similar in design, but Malia’s seemed to be designed with maturity in mind since she is the big sister. Sketched without the sparkle and ruffle bottom like the one designed for Sasha is still perfect for a tween.


My favorite of the sketches, I love the easy elegance of Michelle’s dress and the fresh lilac color. The jellybean colors of the dresses for Malia and Sasha are exciting and these colors I think will capture well the energy of this great night.

Designed by Leann Marshall, winner of Project Runway season 5, everything about this dress spells out elegance, but I hate the color for inaugaration night.

It’s too Late to be Salty

Oh the auto industry, the auto industry, the auto industry. When AIG executives had a lavish retreat at a California resort days after they received our tax money nothing happened. Automotive executives fly to congressional hearings in private planes and everyone’s up in arms. If the automotive industry fails it is not the CEO’s who would hurt.

Was this Henry Ford’s vision? Innovation replaced with corporatism? As the 2006 documentary was so aptly entitled “Who Killed the Electric Car?”

If you have read any of my past blogs you know I not one to belabor a point, so here is the crux of the issue. I know most people like me feel duped by the passing of the October 1st bank bail out package. However, I implore you to realize that the auto industry package is different from that debacle. The failure of the American auto industry will affect at least ten percent of workers in the United States. The auto industry accounts for five percent of the United States gross domestic product and sixteen percent of all durable goods shipments.

Understand that the effect of a failed automotive industry would extend far beyond Detroit. Do not forget the suppliers, the American factory workers and the Mexican factory workers. Can Mexico with stand another failed business within its boarders?

In 2007 Toyota’s Camry retailing at about $16,000 was the number one selling car in America. In 2008 the Honda Civic retailing at about $15,500 was the number one selling car in the country. What would happen to the price of these foreign cars in the United States if they had no competition from Ford, GM or Chrysler?

It is too late to reconcile what has happened with the banking industry but being angry with the automotive companies will not solve that problem.

Peep Kandice on the Tyra Show

Kandice was on the Tyra show yesterday, discussing race assumptions. Peep Kandice around the 16:00m mark. Kandice’s bold attitude, clarity, and outspoken nature definitely livened the set. For more of her musings look here, here, and here.
