facial in a bottle...

so, i was in barney's co-op doing some x-mas shopping and discovered one of the best beauty products i've used in a long time, malin +goetz's detox face mask.  this incredible mask deeply cleanses the pores and purifies the skin.  you can actually feel and see it working in less than 30 seconds.  it left my face feeling hydrated but not oily.   i'm a believer already and can't wait to try the rest of their products!

it also won allure magazine's editor's choice best of beauty award for the best deep cleansing mask.  fashionation thinks it's a winner also.  check it out...

chicago: vintage auction


The quatra-annual auctions of vintage couture at elegant West Loop auction houseLeslie Hindman are stuffed with drool-worthy, super-pricey luxuries like a Chanel three-piece skirt suit (estimated to fetch up to $7,000), a 19th-century Worth gold-silk gown for $3,000-5,000, and a Herm├Ęs black Kelly for up to $6,000. But the mere mortals among us will find treasures that even a recessionista can love: a mod Halston knit dress, a cozy Givenchy wool coat, and a number of classic Yves St. Laurentaccessories are all estimated to sell for $200 or less. The excitement of a live auction — and this well-curated selection — puts your eBay watch list to shame. So do your research, set a budget, and bid with confidence.
