>> Looks like the Free Kate campaign can finally be suspended -- their wish has been granted. CNN is reporting that Kate Moss is out of rehab...hopefully, things can only go up from here. (But things look promising -- her modeling agency is already has assignments in LA, Paris, and New York for next month.)

>> Yell it like Stanley Kowalski (love that play), because Stella McCartney is coming to H&M November 10. It will be interesting to see if all the stores are overrun like last year when Karl Lagerfeld's collection debuted -- I found this collection to be a bit bland. There was nothing that really hit me upside the head and made me say "Wow!"
The colors are dusty, there are some great skinny jeans, an oversized sweater -- all very true to Stella. And I do like the graphic tees. If I had to pick a favorite, it's probably this cropped trench with the bubble hem (left). Love bubble hems.
But really, for what this collection basically is -- a marked-down sample sale -- we have it pretty good.
The collection preview is up here.
>> All of us need some good solid basic pieces in our lives. Especially ones that have a teensy bit of flair to them -- because even basics need personalities. I've always thought that turtlenecks could look so elegant, and the puffy cap sleeves just cap off the look. Har har. But yes, back on topic. This top even reminds me of this Missoni top. Okay, it basically is the Missoni top. Except not cashmere. And not grape-colored.

>> It's something that I just can't explain. But I do, I have a ridiculous obsession with skulls -- mostly on accessories. So basically, when I saw this necklace, I fell. Hard. But of course, I'm a silver person. Not gold.
