Martina Arfwidson, Face Stockholm Maven

Martina looked sooooo cute in this vintage 1980s Mila Schon trench dress from Petria Boutiq.

She visited the boutique with her mother, Gunn Nowak, Face Stockholm's maitresse and Rosalyn Gershell, one of the funniest, wittiest people I have the pleasure of knowing.

Alexandra in the Country.

Understated as she conquers the style world daily, Vogue editor Alexandra is simply one of my favorite people.

Mrs. Fabulous Fiona Kotur Marin.

Handbag designer Fiona Kotur reminded me that her vintage dress came from Petria Boutiq when it was located in Norfolk, Connecticut. It's nice to see (again) that my picks go off to live exciting lives with talented women.

Macho Bag, by Anthony...Jones.

Well hey, that's some bag. Animal, all the way! The designer is Anthony, according to its keeper, pictured here. When I asked him if Anthony has a last name, he said "Jones," but Anthony prefers one name. We won't hold it against him.

Anthony's macho bag is ravishing (and looks like it could take off your arm, and some shoulder, too, with one chomp). The thick strap is alligator and the color deep blood with lots of black overtones. There's nothing girly about this big hunk of creativity.

Life in the Lipstick Jungle.

Brooke Shields needed a bit of primping for her role in Lipstick Jungle. The show set up camp on the corner of 57th Street and Lexington Avenue, in front of Starbucks.
