Every once in a while, I dream of a free-standing tub that is not necessarily a clawfoot.  Something more modern, more sleek, with more oomph.  While walking by the Boffi showroom in Georgetown yesterday, I discovered the answer to anyone’s prayers – at a going rate of, oh, $30K.  I think I’ll go soak in my perfectly fine Jacuzzi, but dang if this isn’t heaven.

It’s no secret that I am a veteran Tory Burch fan and I am lucky to have a terrific and lovely personal shopper, Ann Oliver, out of the Beverly Hills shop.  While perusing the fall offerings, I found the most amazing lug-sole (read: you won’t trip) high heeled boots.  They are decidedly anti-Timberland (remember “Jenny from the Block?” – oy) and gorgeous!

Purchase at Neiman Marcus or Tory Burch.

Ah, total luxist envy of pro cappucino makers!!

While strolling to a meeting today in Old Town, I stopped for a cappucino at Fontaine Caffee & Creperie. Wow! What a gorgeous place! But what struck me was the purty espresso machine. I love Gaggia, I love copper, but this one – this was special!  It’s a La Speziale.

It was especially fun to take the shot with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. Vintagey and so chic.
