|from my glum expression, you can see what a dull trip my brizo fashion week was...NOT! (thank you fellow traveler kathy at live the fine life for this wonderful photo)|
eleanor lambert: still here: in one of those serendipitous moments that has me thanking the universe for my good fortune, my trip to brizo fashion week coincided with the publication of this fabulous book by one of my oldest and dearest friends, john tiffany, so i was able to attend the launch party at lincoln center to celebrate its release. seeing someone i love achieve great success was another highlight to 2011, and the fact that it fell during the week i was already in NYC courtesy of brizo was the best kind of unexpected kismet!

6) joss & main: ok, this one is a shameless plug for good things to come in 2012, but i was approached about it in 2011, so for me, i'm counting it as a 2011 highlight! we are delighted to announce on january 31st, 2012 (a little over 3 weeks from now) that we are having a maison21 curated sale on the joss & main site. the theme for our sale is black, white and BOLD, and essentially it is a curated selection on how to get the maison21 look: liberal use of black and white, paired with bold splashes of color and pattern; as well as touches of glimmering metallics, and the gleam of lucite and mirror- and a maybe little something for the furkids too. selections aren't finalized yet, but i'm excited by what we've put together so far, and i think y'all will like it too!
of course, the support and continued readership of all my friends here on maison21 was another highlight of 2011, and i appreciate y'all sticking with me for these many years. i hope to blog a bit more frequently in 2012, but remember, if you can't get enough m21 in your life, you can always find me (in smaller doses) on the twitters & the facebooks! (pinterest sometimes too!)
happy 2012 to you all- i can tell this is going to be a year of good things for all of us!
