Weekend in the hood

Carlos Alberto’s EVOlution!

I want this with no spending limit, please?

Bah, Critter had the croup for the third time last week, so my posts were few. We did manage to attend two noteworthy events on Sunday.

My very fabulous designer friend Carlos Alberto of The Skyline Studios was chosen to create a model unit at EVO South. The much-anticipated LEED certified highrise community opened last weekend in downtown LA, just blocks from the Staples Center. To celebrate this collaboration, Carlos created an eco-friendly interior design theme called “EVOLution” which will be available as a turnkey package exclusively to EVO South residents. In the design world “turnkey” is short for “we do everything for you and you just turn the key and live there”. No doubt he will have backorders galore – simple, elegant, with interesting organic detail – makes me want to throw away all my bullion fringe and bibelots and start from scratch!

Even though it’s been two years since I was a bride, I assured my registry consultant Joseph that we would stroll by Geary’s of Beverly Hills for their bridal event, which was, in the vernacular of all bridal planners, “to die”. I registered all my china, silver and crystal at Geary’s when I married my perfect Husband, and I love to peruse their immense stock of formal service pieces along with the incredible jewelry they house, which includes modern design along with estate jewelry. Guests were treated to an informal bridal gown show from Claire Pettibone accented by jewels from Michael Beaudry, chocolate pastries event doyenne Mindy Weiss, and magical floral design from Luna Gardens. The place smelled divine and it almost made me want to get married again!

I promised the Husband that if he would buy me a full length white mink and matching hat that I would renew our vows for our tenth anniversary at the Ice Hotel. I wonder if I can bring Joseph, Mindy Weiss and Luna with me?
