Edible chocolate couture? That sounds too good to be true! Each year the world’s largest show dedicated to chocolate, the Salon du Chocolat, is held in Paris, part of a ten-city tour of sweet fashion and chocolate goodies. Delicious!

Sequined Animals

I love how the holiday season ushers in the sparkles and sequins each year. Clothes get more glittery, the latest fashions feature more silver and gold, shoes sport shimmery rhinestones, and everything is just a-twinkle! Well fashion isn’t the only place to shine. This year West Elm, one of my favorite furniture stores, is featuring festive sequined animals, and $5 of each purchase goes to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. So decorate away with sequined squirrels, rabbits, and birds!

I had a chance to view Brooklyn-based artist Leslie Dill’s work recently as part of the “Elements of Nature” show at the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art in Malibu, California. Loved her poem dress and poem suit.
