If I were still writing to Dear Santa, I would definitely list these fave Fall/Winter items. Canadian brand Thieves designs forward-minded limited batches using sustainable production practices, as in the case of their Siberian top, this nubby sweater with horn shoulder detail handknitted from organic wool.

Every Thanksgiving for the last several years, we've delved into the dark cave of the Echo nightclub and and joined Moj Mahdara and dozens of other pals to assemble hot meals for those less fortunate in our 'hood.
MOCA, take note: You want to convey a sense of dangerously standing on the edge of what's next by marking three decades as champions of modern art with an epic assemblage of superstars celebrated for walking on the wild side.
Been on many shoots in my former (ok, not-so-former) life as a fashion editor. For all the fun and laughs that I worked hard in conjuring among the crews, I have to admit no experience was as enjoyable as Sunday's shoot for Martha Stewart Living magazine.

The featured image of a young Rupert Everett is so utterly beautiful that we can't wait to flick through the rest of the monograph.
Two of my greatest delights–the public library and bottomless bottles of Veuve–came together last week to raise some serious dosh to secure books and computers for the downtown Los Angeles central word temple and its 72 neighborhood branches around Los Angeles.
The sound of power saws and drills filling the house these days, with one DIY project followed by another, silenced, at least in my head, when I spotted these interior shots of the futuristic homes of fashion designer Andre Courrèges and actress-director Jeanne Moreau, circa late 1960s, early 1970s.
Diabolical, blasphemous, grotesque and debauch are almost understated qualifiers when it comes to the Tiger Lillies. The London trio are also gifted and utterly glorious, and well deserving of the oft-repeated branding as "the foremost avant-garde cabaret band in the world."
We took in the Tiger Lillie's performance at UCLA's Royce Hall Saturday night, and while much of the audience turned out in Halloween costume, the band came as they are–which can be creepy enough any time of the year.
