Jay star!

While cruising Rotten Tomatoes today, trying to see if anything was worth my $7 (+$8 in snacks and the post-popcorn bloat) at the theater this weekend, I stumbled across this preview for a new documentary about Jay McCarroll.
You remember him; the first winner of Project Runway. You don't? OK, well, he was. After that, for those of us outside of the wheelin' dealin' world of (new) fashion, he sorta slipped off the radar. No special guest starring rolls on Ugly Betty ala Christian "fierce" Siriano, and Amy Pohler wasn't imitating McCarroll on SNL, either.

It appears that McCarroll has gotten over that post-Project Runway high, and is ready to get out on his own...and is ready to speak his mind on what happens after the reality TV cameras stop rolling.
Gads, the pressure!!

Items of the week...Here's Lookin' At You, Kid

The Kid Fur Coat

You don't get much more boho than a coat like this!
This luxe vintage real fur coat absolutely glows with amber tones and highlights. The fur is long, and has been tailored to make a zig-zag effect as the fur lies. It comes with an optional kidskin tie belt.
Yes, kid as in goat...your friendly barnyard animal that tends to get a bad rap. Not to sound too much like the old lady in the movie Cold Mountain, but a goat can be so much to their human friends. Including an awesome fur coat!! (apologies to those who are squeamish about animal products)
