A Boston Globe blog on home and clothing fashion
I love Michael Jackson's music. "Dangerous" was one of the first tapes I ever bought, and I swiped my mom's copy of "Thriller" to listen to while training for cross country in high school. (I always skipped "The Girl is Mine." Too sappy for running. Sorry, Sir McCartney.)
But, I won't bore you with my Courtney-hearts-MJ ramblings. What I really want to talk about are military jackets. in style with champagne, a DJ, and deals on rag bone, opening ceremony, filippa k, fifth avenue shoe Ralph Lauren Outet Online repair, mc by alexander mcqueen, nudie jeans, acne, ernest sewn, shipley halmos, richard chai, band of outsiders, nice collective, mm6 masion martian margiela, daryl k, kerringan, helmut lang.
And for you bargain hunters, the store has a few racks of past season fashion at 85 percent off.
Here are the details. save some for me
Do you consider yourself a Serena, a Blair, a Vanessa, or even a Lil J? Now you too can dress like the "Gossip Girl" ladies sort of. The Cut reports the looks for Anna Sui's new "Gossip Girl"-inspired line for Target have leaked. Now, you too can wear Blair's high collars or Serena's barely-there necklines. The nineteen looks somewhat mimic the ladies' style, with the Vanessa-inspired outfits a confused shade of orange and the Jenny-inspired outfits an awkward mix of edgy punk rock and Catholic schoolgirl.
The line will be available in Target stores from Sept. 13 to Oct. 17. Just don't expect a run-in with Leighton Blair wouldn't be caught dead in a Tar-jay.
The John F. Kennedy Museum on Columbia Point in Dorchester has a new Jacqueline Kennedy dress on display, and it's classic Jackie. In other words, it was designed by her long-time collaborator Oleg Cassini. The pale yellow suit worn by Jacqueline during her celebrated trip to Paris with President Kennedy is now on display in the First Lady Exhibit.
She wore it, along with a matching yellow hat by Halston to a luncheon with President and Mme Charles de Gaulle at the Élysée Palace in Paris on May 31, 1961.
WWD is reporting that Oscar-nominated actor John Malkovich has started his own men's clothing line and it's not even his first foray into the fashion world. In 2002, the actor created the men's label Uncle Kimono, featuring $365 sweaters and $39 t-shirts. The new line of "casual looks," called Technobohemian, will be shown in Milan on Monday.
Hopefully Malkovich's new garments will have names as eccentric as the pieces in his Uncle Kimono line. Who wouldn't want to wear the "Nervous Breakdown Jacket" and the "Free Martha" overcoat?
For the Tokyo Lash Bar 2009 collection, Shu Uemura asked four makeup masters, Gina Brooke (aka Madge's makeup artist), Kakuyasu Uchiide, Yuji Asano, and Mina Matsumura to design eyelashes inspired by the elements of nature. The resulting collection features inspiration from flowers, forests, oceans and the sky.
These are extreme lashes. and guess what? I have a pair to give away. Act quickly, because I only have one pair to give away. Good luck ladies and drag queens!
Because I could use one about now. Oh, I'm kidding. It's not for me. The folks at Morton's Steak House are looking for a great summer cocktail recipe. The winner will receive a private cocktail party for 10 at Morton's Bar 12.21, where their summer libation will be served exclusively to their guests.
Good luck, you little Cheap Polo Ralph Lauren lushes. Your deadline is July 31. If you want to share any recipes here, pass them along or post them to comments, and I'll share them here on Stylephile.
Apologies for the lack of posts kids, but I've been at home and feeling sicker than Anna Wintour at a New Jersey outlet mall. However, thanks to a lot of orange juice and pills I'm back with our first weekly round-up of sales.

Boston has gone fashion show crazy. Seriously, I can't keep up any more and instead have retreated to my den to watch DVDs of "The Partridge Family." Now that's fashion.
But there's one show in particular that I'm getting excited about: La Primavera: Fiesta Fashion Show at District on June 19. It's a benefit for the non-profit Room to Grow. There will be fashion from Stil, Stel's, Crossing Main, Portobello Road and Matsu, with accessories from Patch NYC, hair by G20, and music by Rich LaDue. The inspiration behind the show is the flower-tastic work of Frida Kahlo. Hopefully the models will be a tad less hirsute than Frida.
Here are the details: General Admission $60
Last week I saw Alain Delon in "Purple Noon" and developed a man-crush on the spot. It's the 1960 French version of "The Talented Mr. Ripley," and Delon plays Ripley with such style, that this is a requirement for your Netflix cue. Why are the bad ones always so dreamy? [Insert audible swooning here]
Christian Dior is wisely using a 43-year-old image of Delon for the face of its Eau Savage campaign. The cigarette didn't survive photo shopping, but the rest of this tasty French actor is intact. I'll happily hand over the money for this cologne if it will help me look anything like this:
