Ah, parting is such sweet sorrow. The final episode of Running in Heels has come and gone. But thank goodness that Tivo exists so we can rerun Ashley’s breakdown over and over and over. That girl is a serious bitch. She throws out any negative opinions she has about the person she is speaking with like they specifically asked her to tell them what she hates aobut them. But first, let’s get to the story. Blah, blah, blah – the girls work a party. Ashley, being her pushy, obnoxious self, makes Sam mad but it all turns out fine in the end. The next day at the office Ashley complains about having to help the staff get ready for their big swimsuit photo shoot in Mexico. Correct me if Im wrong but isn’t that her JOB? Each of the girls is given a different task. Ashley’s is to buy four duffel bags for the stylists to pack all their necessities in for the shoot. They only give her $100 though and one duffel bag, she finds out, is $65. After the salesperson stops laughing at her for wanting four for $100 he says he has some defective ones she can buy. The problem here though is her judgment because the bags to begin with are hideous. They are patterned with incredibly obnoxious animal prints. On top of that, she ends up buying defective ones because that’s the only way she’s going to get as many as she needs with the money she has. Doesn’t New York City have a luggage store on just about every block? Was this the only option? I think not. But apparently, Ashley thought so. (more…)
You may have heard about Waxing the City here, so I won’t bore you with a repeat of all the wonderful details about the shop (like the no-tipping policy!). I just wanted to back Steph up and tell you about my experience. I called first thing this morning, and within the hour I got a call back and was able to set up an appointment for this afternoon. Advantage: WtheC. My appointment was a 1:00, at which time I walked into the bright space, filled out my paperwork, and was escorted to a treatment room. Ten minutes later, voila! Beautiful brows and no ‘stache. Then to the counter, where my bill was $25. That’s right. $25 for a brow and lip wax combo. Unbelievable. I’m very happily hairless. You will be too. I wuv you, WtheC.
You’ll read more about this artist in our May/June issue of D Home. But in the meantime, my friend and co-worker—the lovely and talented Elizabeth Lavin—sends news: Paul Schneider has set up shop at Neiman Marcus. Go there now, and buy an original piece before it’s too late! His work incorporates glass with thrown vessels—the glass melts during the firing process creating dramatic colors and textures. Check out his website at www.paulschneiderceramics.com and look for his profile (and a great photograph of him! —Ed) in the next issue of our beautiful print product.

I just got word from Court Wescott over at Polished that Stiletto is their choice for the new season’s polish name. Oh, and they’re going to name a color D Beauty, after us. Aw. So congrats to ShopTalker Kate Young, who submitted the winning entry. She gets a free mani at the 2009 D Beauty Award Winner.
