This is Buckethead, who I figure deserves equal time on the blog. Buckethead is a nester. When he´s sad, or sick, or otherwise feeling low, he collects all the soft blankety things (coats etc.) in the vicinity and piles them up on a chair or sofa. Then he goes to sleep on them. In this photo, he is asleep on top of: a) Diva´s blue fleece bathrobe; b) Enigma´s velour Washington Redskins throw; and some pillows. On top of him is his beloved, disintegrating security blanket.
Meanwhile I was watching Beverly Hills Cop (what a great movie) which reminded me: who´s coming to ScentBar to play with us on the 14th of March? 10 a.m.? Franco needs a count so he knows how much stuff to buy. Attendance is free! You have three ways to rsvp: contact Violetnoir on MUA; contact the Perfume Posse group on Facebook (some of you have already done this, I´ll email you to confirm); or Contact Us on the blog is my last choice as it then has to be sorted and forwarded. I am so excited about this trip. By the way, according to Beverly Hills Cop, if I want to be chic in LA I need either a three-piece suit (male attire) or a blond spiral perm and a denim jumpsuit. Which is just that much funnier given that one of this month´s fashion rags (Vogue?) is full of similar jumpsuits, a look I never thought we´d see again. I´m not buying the hammer pants either.
So. That´s it. I am completely punting this post today perfume-review-wise. Instead I am asking a question: have your perfume-buying habits changed at all in the current economic meltdown? If that question is too depressing to ponder, answer this one: is there a particular fragrance or makeup item you are coveting for now or this spring? I am lusting heartily for this entire Barielle nail polish collection (okay, maybe not the yellow) and I also want something from Shiseido´s new Dick Page lipstick collection, as well as the drop-dead gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in Dahlia, although these are deliberately, heavily scented and I am not sure how I feel about that. Also, I´m on a spring crà¨me nail polish jag – I just got China Glaze Secret Peri-winkle and Agent Lavender (squeee! so perfectly pale!) as well as Color Club Blue Light, another gorgeous pale blue. Misa Jasmine is a lovely medium violet, but CG Shower Together was darker than I expected. I´m thinking I need For Audrey, even if it is a little warmer blue than the Tiffany box (and it is.) Any other pale blue, gray or green crà¨me recs for us cool-toned gals? Also, I´m as afraid of pink polish as I am of rose perfume, and do I need to get over myself? I feel like most pink polishes just magnify the pink tones in my skin, which is why I don´t wear pink clothes either. Is there a really flattering pink crà¨me that doesn´t look … I dunno … too Barbie or too dull?
