Lucky Magazine Bracelet Arrived!

Well my fellow fashionistas - it has been such a long wait - I am sure that people have forgotten - hey we have a short attention span in the fashion world I understand - However the wait is over. The bracelet featured in Lucky Magazine by The Branch has finally arrived. We have only 4 left in stock already in Medium and Large - Retail $226. The back ordered earrings are on route from Foggy London town as well - but you may want to hurry in and snatch up one of these fabulous cuffs before anyone else! We will accept phone orders for those of you who don't live in LA.
Bricklane is about to go online and offer select items from the shop at it's soon to be launched online shopping site. Be on the look-out - we anticipate a launch date by early November! Cheers!

Smart House - Smart Car Launch Party on Abbot Kinney

Thursday evening I was invited to the cocktail reception of the opening of the new SMART HOUSE on Abbot Kinney Blvd. I was invited because my lovely sister Kathleen Dugan is a publicist at LaForce-Stevens PR firm in NYC and their LA office is now handling the press for the Smart House.

Now I travel to Europe a bit and have seen the Smart Car for years over there. The cutest little car that looks like you could fold it up and carry it away in your purse ..."It's a purse...It's a car..." I have always found them cute but never really delved into them more than that. Well after an evening of seeing these cars, getting to sit it one - they really are roomier then one would anticipate, and learning more about the car, the company philosophy and how much better they are for the environment - my friend Elizabeth and I started musing on the benefits of having such a little car. I mean we don't drive that much, they are so little parking would be easier - and what a great way to run around town doing your errands without leaving as much of a carbon imprint on the world! Hmmmmm food for thought.

Saturday October 13 from 11AM to 5PM SMART HOUSE will be open to the public for an Open House reception and then remain open Tuesday's - through Sunday's from 11AM to 9PM through January 2008. Stop by and learn more about the Smart Car, see the amazing design of the Smart House and take one for a test drive! Maybe it is time we all give up our SUV's and start to drive Smart!
