I'm dying to try Maialino, Danny Meyer's new restaurant in Ian Schrager's Gramercy Park Hotel over on Lexington Ave and 22nd street. Roman style cooking by executive chef Nick Anderer. Everything looks delicious—I'm already dreaming about the suckling pig.
The bearded man (my brother).
Chicago tea company Argo just opened it's first NYC shop in the Flatiron building (Enter on Broadway between 22nd and 23rd Streets). Tons of different teas from around the world and other healthy tea drinks, plus delish treats and pre-made lunch snacks. (The warm chocolate brownie is to die for)

I don't know what it is with me an Burberry lately, but I just saw the Red Carpet photos from the 2010 BAFTA awards. Claire Danes is looking amazing—and what is she wearing if not Burberry. I'm going to have to eat my words about not liking that brand.
A perfect black blazer.
Had a chance to view the live stream from the Burberry Prorsum’s Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear collection yesterday. It has so many highlights, I don’t know where to start. Oversized shearling coats, olive, navy and black military jackets, exposed zippers, lace. Tailored dresses mixed with oversized coats. I'm in love! Everything Christopher Bailey dreamed up is just amazing.
I’m especially crazy about the black wool coats with tons of detailing—gold buttons, zippers and cool epaulets. I think I may just have found my fall jacket. Can’t wait for this collection to hit the stores.

CBS just announced that they will be airing a TV special captioning all the behind the scenes hustle and bustle of this years Fashion's Night Out in NYC. If it will be like last year, we'll witness celebrity chaos, hysteria and traffic jams on every corner.
I'm ridiculously addicted to this show. Kelly Cutrone is a rock star! New episode was on again just last night and they already managed to fire two people working there and a third before she even started. This is priceless entertainment. (They did have a lot of morons working there though).
Pouring rain in NYC today. I had forgotten how miserable it can be—unless you are cuddled up inside, I guess.
Great news for all J. Crew fans.
New innovations in runway fashion shows. Today, Burberry will broadcast it's 2010 London Fashion Week Runway show in 3D!

Haven't done one of these for a while. Since I can only fit into about five percent of the clothes in my closet, I have to wear the same stuff a lot! At this point I literally hate all of them.
27 weeks today—in three more days I'll be entering month 7 and the third and final trimester. Whoo hoo! Just 13 more weeks to go, thank god.
I don't think I have ever gotten anything at bebe. It has always tended to look a little trashy and cheap, but the new Kim Kardashian collection actually has some great pieces for a night out. Although they were just showing it in Bryant Park the other day, the line is already available at the stores and online (a lot of stuff seem to be sold out already).
More from NYC Fashion week before it's headed off for London and Paris. Still on my Marc by Marc Jacobs kick. I found four favorites hot off the runway. I want all four! Funny enough, lately I have liked the Marc bags more than his pricier Marc Jabcobs collection.

I love these Ramona snake skin 3 snap pumps from Loeffler Randall . They are now new anymore and seem to be really difficult to get hold of.
Just decided this weekend, in typical Anna lunacy fashion, to renovate our main bathroom—in the middle of all the baby madness! Perfect timing since I'm tomorrow kicking-off pregnancy month 7. Wobbling around the house with a hammer and a paint brush, trying to get everything done. I know we could have hired someone to do it all, but what's the fun in that?! Sitting on the sofa filing my nails is not even half as satisfying.
I'm in love with these baby clothes from Swedish clothing company Lundmyr of Sweden. Adorable and comfy stuff in black, white and red—all in organic cotton.

Just tasted the most delicious tea from French tea emporium Palais des Thes at Cafe Gitane. Still haven't been able to find a US retailer that carries it, so if anyone knows, please let me know.
Let me start by saying I hate Burberry plaid. Somehow in my head it has become synonymous with low class and tackiness—typical Chav. (Sorry all you Burberry plaid lovers). I think it have often led me to totally dismiss all of the Burberry brand as a little gosh.
