Happy Nate Day!

Thanks to the gals at The Mogg Blog for creating this event for such a great designer. Being a guy who designs I have had the up most respect and admiration for Nate's work for a long time. I am so excited about his show and the platform he will have for design as a whole.

I'm new to what the gals at the Mogg Blog are doing but from what I can gather it is a grassroots movement to have an audience of bloggers for one of Nate's first awesome would that be!! I found out via Small and Chic in Cville...a great blog...check it out!

So here's to Nate and all he has accomplished and best of luck with the show!

~Sarah Jessica Parker( the epitome of style ) graces the cover of the upcoming May Vogue... here are some excerpts from the press release:

On having children with a surrogate mother: "Meeting your children rather than giving birth to them, it's as if, um, it's--suspended animation. The gestational experience is gone. It's as if everything else disappears for a moment, and the world goes silent and--I can't explain it except to say that nothing else existed. I don't remember anything but the blanket on the bed that they were lying on and my husband's face and their faces and my son's. It's literally as if sound is sucked from the room. Time stands still. It's so different, and equally extraordinary."

On the importance of keeping perspective: "We painted our patio furniture ourselves.... I make my children's food myself. We put together their high chairs ourselves; we do a lot ourselves! We do our own grocery shopping, we go to the market ourselves, you know? I do my laundry."

The upcoming Sex and the City sequel: "We four women, despite I guess what a lot of people hope, have never been better. This movie--and maybe it's because we actually lived together--it was the best! We were together all day long, at night, in the restaurants, in our hotels. It was wonderful!"

Her introduction to New York and Halston: "I came to New York originally in 1976, and then I got this part in Annie around the corner from Studio 54. I was a little girl, and for some reason they always invited the cast of Annie to Studio 54, so there I was at thirteen and fourteen, and the doorman would usher us in, literally underneath his arms. And it was 1977 in New York City, and you couldn't be alive and not know the name Halston."

Her new position with Halston: "There was every reason to say no, and there were very compelling reasons to say yes.... It's an exciting time at that company. It has had some false starts that are well documented and it is relaunching itself. It has a wonderful legacy, and I couldn't say no."
