Starr Power

Last night I watched the 1978 movie Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band staring Peter Frampton and The Bee Gees for the second time in my life. The first time I saw it I was probably 14 and thought the movie was cheesy and lame, and most people agree it's a 3 out of 10 kind of a movie. But with the right mood and a few glasses of wine it was one of the most entertaining films I've seen in a long time, truly magical. Speaking of magical—my friend Amy Keller turned me on to one of the coolest websites EVER! Hayley Starr's website is a place you could spend hours, checking out her great clothes, music and book recommendations, and my personal favorite—her line of rainbow plexi glass furniture. Sure her work brings to mind Philippe Starck, but it strangely reminds me of what I would think Peter Frampton might have had in his home in the late 1970s, especially since he was wearing TIGHT white pants, high heels and pink satin shirts. Her furniture line is temporarily on hold due to the raised market price of plexi glass—but I highly recommend checking out the website and buying a dress or two.
