>> I saw a girl wearing these earrings today, and they are fantastic. Perfect size, perfect shape, everything. Of course, I've always been a sucker for the leafy, but when they're $9 earrings, I think that's okay.

>> That's my policy for something like this: absolutely beautiful, but totally out of my price range. Temple St. Clair's crystal egg amulet pendant, $325-$1,550 (depending on size, diamonds, etc.).
What about all these rumors about your working with H&M?
They’ve asked me. I always said no, not because I don’t like the idea, I just don’t like the idea of doing bad copies of what I’m doing. And I don’t have the time, and maybe even the ability, to do a collection with them. If you want to do a collection that costs less, you have to do it with different materials and different ideas.
Why do other people do it?
I don’t know. Because of course they’re attracted by the fame you can get. Just because you want to do something new that people talk about. I don’t know how much real interest there is in doing fashion that is not expensive but is creative.
Bummer, dude. Looks like all the hype might have been for nothing. But I can respect that she doesn't want to trade quality for affordability.
>> If you're in New York between April 19 and May 31, I've got something for you to pencil in -- an art installation of skirts at Prada's Soho Epicenter store on Broadway. The installation, "Waist Down - Skirts by Miuccia Prada," was highly successful when it showed last year in Tokyo and Shanghai -- no surprise, because it features more than 200 skirts by Miuccia Prada... animated. In the Tokyo exhibition, skirts twirled, glowed, cast funny shadows, spread open like giant jellyfish. The Soho show will be similar, with some new displays. Sounds amazing to me -- not only because of the sheer amount of Prada skirts, but because I am curious to see what the skirts will be doing.

>> First Kate Moss, now the evil Lohan has Irina Lazareanu in her clutches. What a girl to do when one of her favorite models is seen hanging out with one of her least favorite people? I'm shaken, not stirred.
EDIT: Wow, Lindsay really is trying to rub elbows with the right people -- she and Irina ate lunch with Marc Jacobs.
