A Little Remodeling has gone through some new renovations. It appears that the website is no longer home to both W magazine and Vogue. W Magazine now has its own website and Vogue is still attached to the site.

Unlocking an Hermes Kelly Bag

So we've all heard the rumor of a giant waiting list for any Hermes bag, but what's the truth. I went into the Hermes store in search of answers. How many people are on this list? How does it work? etc. etc. Well it turns out, the buyer ready to set down a few thousand dollars chooses everything from size to leather to color of the bag writes it down on a sheet with their Name Address and Phone Number and when said bag enters their local store they are called and can claim their bag. Well apparently the list is kept hush hush as well as its contents. The very nice salesman I spoke with said that they aren't even allowed to talk about their bags over the phone.

So hush hush, I probably wasn't even supposed to tell you.

"This is my Mother's house"

I just recently sat down to watch the documentary "Grey Gardens" after seeing almost every fashion magazine do their take on the film. It was extraordinary. I now find myself quoting the two Kennedy outcasts on a daily basis. Saying things such as "I'm a STAUNCH character!" and "I'm really an organized person I just can't find it -you see?"

So as I researched more about the film I ran across something VERY interesting. It's being made into a film. And who will be playing little Edie you ask? Why Drew Barrymore.

I don't know if I'm liking this or not.

The London times ran an intresting article on what is in so famous British celebrities bags -- toys, airborne and even tabasco sauce.
My favourite is my Herm├Ęs Kelly bag, in which I always carry my DVB sunglasses, my BlackBerry, a small make-up bag with a few essentials, baby wipes, some toys for the boys when they’re out and about and a spare nappy for Cruz.

I love Luella’s bags – they are beautifully made and you don’t see them everywhere. Inside is my BlackBerry, which has changed my life; Ruby & Millie Face Gloss, which gives a natural glow and stops you looking like a dog’s dinner; Airborne Formula, a fizzy vitamin thing that is amazing for avoiding bugs on planes; Oyster card; pictures of my family; and a Moleskine sketchbook.

I feel rather antilabel about handbags these days – they’re all a little too Wagtastic. I’m using an anonymous suede bag by Fratelli Rossetti. Inside is a Givenchy powder compact in Happy Sun, a Letts Ladydate diary, a tube of Colman’s English mustard, a mini supply of Maldon salt, a mini bottle of Tabasco, my BlackBerry and a digital camera for taking pictures of everything I eat.

My bag is a Chanel 2.55 that was a present from my husband three years ago. I still haven’t found anything that could replace it. Inside are my two favourite lipsticks, Amplified Orange by Mac and a shocking-pink YSL; my LG Shine mobile, which doubles as a mirror; Shu Uemura Depsea Water in Rose and Shu Uemura mascara; YSL vintage sunglasses; Flavigny Pastilles, preferably violet flavour; and my Eiffel Tower gold pen, found when tourist shopping in Paris.

I’m using a classic black leather Chanel bag. I use the same routine when it comes to packing it and follow it religiously: diary, camera (you never know when you will need one), St Tropez Bronzer, Nars blusher, Pout lip plump, YSL mascara, my own Coleen X perfume, green Wrigley’s Extra, credit cards and money in case I need to take a taxi.

Some Like it Hot

So, who doesn't love Marilyn Monroe in the Seven Year Itch and Some Like it Hot?, but new photos have recently been released showing how she looked before the glamour years, and I've got to say the transformation is spectacular. She grew up Norma Jeane but changed her name (kind of like Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's no?)
