Raise your hand if you've been following CR Fashion Book, Carine Roitfeld's two-year-old magazine. It's fantastic. Take this video, for example, which use Matrix-like cinematography to capture luxuriously dressed guests physically fighting at a dinner party. I particularly love the surprise ending.
Spring means bright florals and pastels to most people, but I'm keeping things colorless next season. It makes for easy matching and an overall chic, timeless vibe.
Here are a few of the warm-weather essentials I'd buy if someone dumped a bucket of money in my lap (except for the bikini top, which I already bought for my trip to Hawaii next month, yay!).

It snowed in Seattle last week and everyone freaked out. They even had me — a born-and-raised Minnesotan — worried about leaving the house while the ground was still white.
You guys, it was maybe half an inch of powder.
Granted, Seattle has crazy-steep hills and pretty much zero government recourse for snow control, but I've driven twenty miles in a two-door pickup truck during a white-out blizzard. Half an inch is nothing.
The trick? Drive slowly and avoid using your breaks, the main cause of sliding. Run red lights and stop signs if you have to (when the intersection is clear, of course) and try to keep your wheels in the clearest part of the road, regardless of staying inside the lines.
Basically, disregard traffic laws and you'll do just fine .
Your friendly Minnesotan
