The Killers performance at London's Royal Albert Hall. The elation of the crowd, the connection with the band ... it's mesmerizing and energizing on DVD and my new cleaning the house/dancing while I wash the dishes soundtrack on CD. (Take a peek on YouTube, but trust me immersion in the entire concert is a far better experience.)
What music is distracting you from dusting and making you dance these days?
The Killers Live From The Royal Albert Hall DVD/CD two-disc set is available in the Style Maniac Amazon Boutique.

Several times a year I contemplate turning my guest room into a closet. So far the guests keep winning. But a girl can dream ....

Ah, the magic of Disney. Puts me instantly in the mood for Halloween. And I always love a Cinderella story, thanks to this one my dad used to tell about how he met my mother. As for creating pretty pumpkins, that has never been my forte. Anyone have advice for carving jack-o'-lanterns?

At a High Point Market seminar I attended this past Spring, Aerin Lauder (who was launching her new home collection) predicted "Dark Florals" as a design trend for Fall 2013. Immediately I thought of this vintage Chinoiserie purse, part of my famous haul from Chicago's Couture Club years ago. Seems vintage looks always, always come back in style. (Though I wear it regardless of trends -- to me, that hand embroidery is a work of art you can carry with you.)
What looks for home and fashion are you loving this Fall?

Hayden Williams, are you sure we've never met?
Black cape, leopard heels, even the long leather gloves.
So my kind of look.
