Happy New Year!

I'm back after 3 amazing weeks full of fun, family and friendship. I'm ready to embrace 2010 with more of it. May 2010 bring you health, love, a greener planet and great projects. And most of all, may 2010 bring all of us together. You know how to reach me.
Love, Alice.

Happy Slapsgiving everyone!


I woke up this morning hoping that it would snow today, but truth is: I'm wearing a sleeveless top.  It's crazy to think that this year is the first time I'm hosting a Thanksgiving dinner and I'm very excited about it. I usually fly back to Europe to spend time with my family.
A special thought to my friend Rick in Germany: it's probably his first Thanksgiving away from home. We'll toast to you today!

This year, I'm thankful for having a caring family, fun friends, a smart-cute-funny-talented husband and great projects to work on. What are you thankful for?

A mermaid got married

Remember my friend Mermaid Audrey?

Well, she got married last July. I know it's about time I share the pictures. The wedding took place in Gers, in the south of France where one of the main attractions is foie gras. Needless to say that when she announced her engagement I booked a one-way ticket right there.

The point is: she wore a gorgeous Lanvin—right under the knee—dress. She looked as stunning as she was relaxed and fun to hang out with that day, like almost any other day with her.

Congratulations Mermaid!

Holiday wish list #1

For those of you who've been frantically asking me what I want for the holidays and for the others who haven't yet... Here's my holiday wish list #1. Yes #1. There will be many more.

1) Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag. 2) Cow rug by Maison de Vacances. 3) Champagne Flutes from the MOMA store. 4) A west village apartment in New York. 5) Casio watch in gold. 6) Bird ring by Kenneth Jay Lane. 7) Weekend luggage from Reiss. 8) Grey cape from Maje-Paris. 9) Fred flats from Christian Louboutin.

I'm cheesy

There's a reason why I moved to the United States more than 6 years ago and it didn't take me long to figure it out: the holidays!
Why? Because of how big trees are, how bright the lights are, how the stores are decorated, how good the food is, how romantic the movies are and most of all, because of the Christmas carols...Yes, I know how cheesy this sounds but it's okay: I am cheesy. The same way I cry in front of a stupid life insurance commercial, I dance watching Crispin Porter's new Gap Holiday commercial.
Nothing revolutionary but it feels oh-ho-ho so good.

Buro Beluga


Quatre Cinquieme was sent an email this week from a creative platform, Buro Beluga, based in Paris who specializes in sets and display windows. I was amazed by the talent and the level of creativity. Looking at their website, it made me want to switch career. They have done work for Les Galeries Lafayette the past two Christmas. It's inspiring, it's dreamy, it's Tim Walker-ish, it's well executed and I love the fact that they sent me an email. I hope our paths cross one day. Congratulations!

Please send your work to Quatre Cinquieme so we can all share great inspiring moments!
