Madonna for HM

I was really curious to see what Madonna had
designed for her collection at H&M. Because while Madonna is
definitely an icon, and defined many trends in the 80's, her style
these days tends to be rather conservative. My favorite item in the
collection is this leather jacket. In href="">HM stores March 22.

Giesha Lamp

I saw a version of this lamp in the most recent version of Domino magazine and fell in love. I was pleasantly suprised to find a more affordable version at Urban Outfitters for only $42.00.
