I assembled a quick arrangement using whatever was within arms' reach. The tulips are 2 days past their prime, but still straining to show some fading beauty. The Betsey Johnson wedges, whimsical as they are with their bow tie front and leopard print soles, deserved a place in the shot. After all, I pounded the pavement in LA with them a few weeks ago -- and who walks in LA?

A local Bay Area artist created the mixed media art backdrop. When I asked him what the colors, textures and etched writing meant, he remarked that only his psychotherapist really knew. Cue from Rorschach: we are free to assign any meaning we like to it. (I won't judge you even if it is a disturbed interpretation.)
On a serious note, for you fashion lovers: Don't we just love Richard Avedon's photography? I saw the Avedon photography exhibit at the San Francisco MoMA last year and just thought he was a genius!
