Now That's What I Call A Goody Bag...

She's the Eloise for us dysfunctional grownup girls...

If you swap out the brown loafers for Belgians, her closet could nearly pass for mine...

And, I think dressing as Margot Tenenbaum for Halloween is pure geeeniousss, ranking right up there with Little Edie Beale (both requiring Hermes accessories, natch)...

This dress, a red hair pin (in my soon to be Brazilian blownout bob), enough black eyeliner to shame a Whitesnake video, Birkin bag for all my treaties (wishful thinking), Nana's mink, a ciggy and I'd be good to go...

And, for all the other days of the year there's this to play with...

Although, does one really need a Halloween excuse to dress as Margot? Pshaw, I think I just mentally packed my T. Anthony for Paris...

Kindness of Ali Culver for the idea, the dress AND the paper doll links. Of all the finds you've sent my way Ali this one takes the cake. Dare I say, even trumping the fabulous oyster belt? XXOO

  8. I've read tht Gwyneth gets to keep the bags from the movies she films. The Birkin from "The Royal T's" and the Kelly from "A Perfect Murder. Annnd she gets paid too!

  11. That is an absolutely perfect idea. Perfect. The barrette alone would be worth the price of admission.
