Indecision 2010

Never have I been so flummoxed by my red carpet opinion as with this year's Oscars. I have waited far too long to post my faves, possibly because they aren't actors at all - they're both part of the fashion world in some way. I wish I had an actor and actress to include here, but they were all too pretty and predictable (or atrocious) so I'm going to stick with those that hit me first:

Tom Ford - The ne plus ultra in men's grooming and style. If I could come back as someone in my next life, it'd be Tom Ford. Bonus, a nod to Coco with the camellia.

Sandy Powell - Winner for Costume Design for The Young Victoria. I don't love her accessories, but the dress shall overcome. I would have worn it plain. The low back is enough of an accessory.

These are a few of my favorite things...

Had to share these little things that make me tick on a Saturday morning; hope they bring you some sunshine (OK, I'm really ready for spring to get here):

Phillip Lim - I'm lucky enough to have a few items from 3.1 and they are my absolute favorite works of art in my closet. His stuff is RTW priced but is still pure genius. Here's a peek inside his apartment from The Times. After reading this profile, I think we're soul mates.

Jamie Cullum - Something in his songs just get me. Saw him last night in concert and he's way better live - I cried during All at Sea, what a sap (hey, 2009 was a rough year and the song was there for me). His new album The Pursuit was just released.

The Times Style Magazine - I'm pretty ticked that I ended my subscription just before this issue came out. Reading The Times on the weekend with my cup of java is transporting.

Keurig Coffeemaker - So fun to try new flavors. Today I'm having Spicy Mayan Mocha. Delish.
