You know the economy’s looking great when a top exec of a Freddie Mac is found dead from hanging himself… and this just one month after the Chief Exec resigned. What depression? [NYT]
At least the markets were up today. Anyway….
Happy Wednesday/Earth Day! Woo hoo! Do something green today… and preferably keep it up. And no, I don’t mean just buying an organic tote (although there are some cute ones out there, that’s one investment I have yet to make…)
Teehee. I want an umbrella like that…

Ah, reminds me of Woodstock…
Ah, there’s nothing quite like a dirty, teeming mass of humanity gathering for 3 days of peace, love, and music. If I had a time machine, I would so go there. Really. Sometimes I think I would’ve been a better 60s, 70s, and 80s kid than a… 2000s kid. Haha.

Jamie Bochart – you know, the one I thought looked like Alice Cooper on that one runway? Well, she’s back and looking very un-Cooper-like.
LOVE this! (Dazed)
World’s Most Expensive Suit retails at… $103,000.
“The world’s most expensive suit will be unveiled at a party in London tonight. Designed by Alexander Amosu, the suit costs $103,000. So it’s perfectly sensible for Amosu to arrange for extra security to accompany the suit to the party, where it will be transported in an armored Range Rover. Amosu is also launching his new luxury line for men and women, with prices starting at $7,300 and topping out at $103,000 for the suit. The illustrious ensemble is a blend of vicuña, a rare wild South American animal related to the camel which only produces enough wool for shearing every three years; qiviuk, the world’s most expensive wool, which comes from the arctic muskox; and pashmina. They call this blend “Vanquish II.” Since no six-figure item of apparel is complete without shiny embellishments, the suit is finished with nine eighteen-carat gold and pavé-set diamond buttons. The designer is, obviously, untroubled by the economic climate. “We might not be catering to everyone,” Amosu concedes. “But the people who buy Alexander Amosu want to wear the very best suits in the world.” We can think of only one person foolish enough to purchase such an item: Real Housewife of New York Jill Zarin, who spent $16,000 on a bag that looked to be made of red cardboard and thought it was an understated way to celebrate her birthday.” (NYmag)
I’m slowly becoming enraptured by LG’s outfits. That hat is killer.
Dearest Johnny Depp is using hair gel. Mmmmm.
Brit model Claire Merry. Star Trek, anyone?
OK, I’m off to read more of 1984. A great book, I recommend it.
