antique d.c. beauties

just noticed a new section on 1stdibs.com for antique dealers in washington, d.c.

according to a report on
washingtonpost.com, 1st dibs was scheduled to list the area’s dealers and their items this month. judging by the remarkable selection that is already online, i’m certain many of the pieces will be sold soon.

although the prices are steep, the range and brilliance of the aged beauties is outstanding. from a fine and rare 18th century mirror to a pair of abstract sculptural lamps, the
d.c. selection on 1stdibs.com is extraordinary.

luxe toga look


how amazing does bollywood actress sonam kapoor look in this grecian style dress? the jewelry, however, is what really makes her stand out...it's so cool the way she has paired those gorgeous kundan necklaces together to create such a unique and stylish look.

really enjoyed looking through this editorial featured in the may 2009 pages of l'officiel brazil. the futursitic and mysterious shots well-suit moods of wondering what's next.
