Have you guys checked out Joss and Main yet? It’s the newest flash sale home site from our pals at CSN Stores and they kindly have offed up a $250 gift certificate for one of my readers to win! All you have to do over the next few days (winner announced next week) is join Joss and then leave a coment with your favorite find! Here are some fab things I found on Joss (and a few sales coming up!)
You can imagine my surprise and delight in receiving an email from fashionista and entrepreneur Lauren Santo Domingo last week. Especially since when said email was received, the Town & Country with her gorgeous mug on the cover sat square on my coffee table under my laptop. Lauren and business partner Anslag Magnusdottir (click to check out her closet on The Coveteur) have launched Moda Operandi, an online luxury goods retailer that allows you to shop the runways before anything even gets to the stores. So basically, you get to shop like Lauren without being Lauren! Granted, you’ll need a pretty penny to snag some fresh off the runway Jason Wu, but the ability to even have the access to do so is revolutionary. Click HERE to request a membership!
And who better to launch such a venture than New York’s fashion darling?Some shots of Lauren’s enviable style:
I asked Lauren for a few of her insider favorites and she kindly obliged:
What are your three beauty products you simply cannot live without?
What are the four items from your closet that you would chose above all others and why?
Proenza Schouler blazers- I live in them, and they are more dressed up than a cardigan
Celine sandals- very simple discreet heels- so refreshing after turbo platforms for so long!
Erdem cocktail dresses- they are perfect for getting a look that can take you from uptown to downtown.
My wedding and engagement rings.
What are your three favorite items from your home?
My Lalanne hippo bar, my bookshelves (I’m a big reader) and my baby nursery- I’m expecting my first in six weeks and couldn’t be more excited! (See more of her home in Vogue here)
Favorite items for spring 2011?
The whole Celine line- simple and chic.
What designer’s show do you never want to miss?
Proenza Schouler- always the most innovative of fashion week.

I love it when catalogs I sometime pass over suprise me when I stop to look- this happened with Grandin Road last night! Check out these great little affordable finds all available on the site!
With catalogs pouring into our mailboxes for holiday shopping, sometimes you get some you’ve never gotten before (thanks for the influx of baby catalogs US Postal System- I get it, I’m 31, I should have a BABY). Anyways, the other day I got the Chiasso catalog and I think maybe once before at an old address I had gotten it, but I had forgotten about them. To my surprise there were some killer items in there I had to share with you!
Large, stylish and only $55- this mirror is a steal!
These brass wall sculptures sure look a lot like the pricey C.Jere works– Id order a couple sets and create and amazing wall installation above a buffet or dresser!
A great array of pillows:
Cool picture frame decals can help create a unique gallery wall for a kid’s room!
These shelves looks quite a bit like my Sapien bookshelves:
Only have about $1,000 to spend on a sofa and don’t want some generic discount store look? This one is uber stylish and mid-century inspired!
A cute and cheery hexagonal rug
Lantern inspired lighting:
I adore these mirrored bird silhouettes for a nursery!
