If Brad Pitt sells perfume Brad Pitt Selling Perfume? Truly, End Is At HandCOLUMN November 29, 2012Gina Barreca, Not That I m Bitter Forget the Mayan calendar: Brad Pitt s commercial for Chanel No. 5 is Moncler Shopping a sign of the impending apocalypse. Have you seen it? Pitt looks like Gen. George Custer right before his last stand. Reportedly paid around $7 million to gaze into the camera and intone "every journey ends," "plans disappear" and "wherever I go, there you are," Pitt says the kind of things my father used to yell at us kids when we were annoying him on a long car ride. My dad, of course, didn t sound like Hamlet saying these things and Pitt does, so that s part of the difference. The other difference was that my dad, who would have been driving a 67 Buick Skylark with a faulty muffler, had take home pay of about 78 bucks a week. So when Pitt says "My luck, my fate," he makes it sound very different from the way my father would have said it. Pitt speaks so bewitchingly, however, you sort of don t realize that what he s saying the rest of the time is nuts. "The world turns and we turn with it," Pitt declares. Well, Brad, until the end of the world was placed on this year s calendar, we really didn t have much of a choice, did we? What s the catch line for Pitt s Chanel campaign? "Inevitable." Yeah, right. Brad Pitt is a lot of things to a lot of women, but one thing he is not is "inevitable." Bunions, menopause and an increased need for periodontal care are inevitable; Moncler Branson Down Jacket Branson Navy Black Brad Pitt is not. Pitt s shilling for Chanel as its first ever male celebrity, therefore, shows that the apocalypse is heading our way. But the fact that he earned a fee in the high seven figures without even needing to part his hair is only one indication that the world is drawing to a close even faster than a Kathie Lee Gifford Broadway show. (That a musical written by Kathie Lee Gifford celebrating the life of a discredited evangelical preacher made it to Broadway could, in and of itself, be a heavy End Times indicator.) Look, between the Mayan calendar s prediction that life on earth will stop mid afternoon on Dec. 21, Maya MacGuiness prediction that Americans will step off the fiscal cliff on Jan. 1 and My Little Pony s declaration that "Princess Cadance can t wait to marry prince Shining Armor," after which "When you press her button, she ll talk and her amazing wings will move and light up!" you know December 2012 is going to be a whole apocaly lotta laughs. Yes, My Little Pony s magic unicorn horn has, by some, seemed to point increasingly to universal destruction. I m not cynical by nature, but the combination of these untoward events are enough to make even an unusually sanguine person such as me start watching "Doomsday Preppers" instead of watching QVC, HGTV, or "Project Runway." After all, if it s the end of the world, will I really care if my trousers are wondrously slimming, if my window treatments offer sufficient morning light or if tar as a fashion accouterment is the new bleached leather? If the meteor hits, if dollars as we know them are entirely debased and we are all using socks instead of stocks for currency, and if Princess Cadance reigns over international politics once Shining Armor installs her as part of his "puppet" regime, will I care about whether my sister in law s gravy is less lumpy than mine? Or whether her thighs are, for that matter? No, I won t. I ll have new priorities, like trying to build shelter out of empty CD cases (I knew they d come in handy), learning to forage for food ("forage" being a Brooklyn word for "steal") and making fine wine from transmission fluid (it s all about the horsepower). Sure, if I m going to survive the apocalypse, I ll need to get used to some changes. Like Princess Cadance, I will be probably be all "shiny" as well as "glowy" given the pernicious effect of fallout. If the end of the world happens, I just hope I m holding a martini Moncler Down Coats Men Hooded Mid-Length Military Green made with Chanel No. 5 and just a hint of Valvoline. But please, Lord: Before the world ends, if it must, can you make sure that comedian Gilbert Gottfried does a parody of Pitt s commercial?

Illume in Belleair Bluffs celebrates vintage jewelry Quality vintage jewelry, often one of a kind pieces made and signed by designers, is found in high end shops in Palm Beach, New York City, Paris and Belleair Bluffs. Susan Swander s Illume shop, on Indian Rocks Road between Belleair and Largo, is filled with jewelry displaying the history of what women wore on their necks, arms, ears and clothing from the age of Queen Victoria to the 1960s. "You walk into (Illume) and you re overwhelmed with the selections from all different time periods," said Jennifer Smith of Seminole, a shopper at Illume since it opened three years ago. "It s a museum of vintage fashion jewelry. To think we have (Illume) as a source here that can rival and blow the other places out of the water is pretty special." Helen Younskevicius Moncler Made In Romania of Largo collects vintage jewelry and buys it for herself and her two adult daughters. She said Swander "has exquisite taste and can help find pieces that are perfect for you. Looking at her collection, you can imagine what a whole era was like, how the jewelry was worn and for what occasions." "I loved her shop from the very first time I went in," said Jessica Foster of Seminole, who was driving by three years ago when it caught her eye. "There are pieces you can really appreciate they have a history, a story." "Jewelry wants to be worn," said Swander, who buys her pieces from estates and individuals. "It shouldn t sit in dark drawers year after year. The idea is to get it out and enjoy it, especially now that it s so fashionable." Vintage jewelry, she said, "is like buying antiques. It s an investment. It s increasing in value and I have customers who buy it like it s art." Her collection, she said, includes such designers as Miriam Haskell, Dior, Kenneth Jay Lane, Hattie Carnegie, Cartier, Eisenberg, Chanel, Vendome, as well as unsigned beauties. She said she is always looking to buy vintage couture jewelry. Illume s vintage collection also includes unusual pieces from around the world. Prices generally range from $20 to $300 but there are more high end pieces. Price tags carry the price, the year the piece was made and information about the designer or what the piece is made of. She also carries organic clothing and accessories. Most popular now, Swander said, are cameos, cuff and rhinestone bracelets, jewelry in marcasite, jet, ivory, coral and pieces from the late 1920s 2014 Moncler Lucie New Pop Star Women Down Coat Long Brown and 1930s. Egyptian revival is in, too, and Native American is good, she said. Andrea Layman of Belleair said she likes vintage jewelry because she is "attracted to things with historical value and significance. Susan s pieces are so extraordinarily unique and they are complete statement pieces. Moncler Pop Star Coat I love to wear a Deco piece with a modern outfit, a Victorian piece with jeans and a T shirt." Kelly Machbitz, a Clearwater based image consultant whose books on the subject include Wear This Not That, said she regularly shops at Illume for her clients as well as herself. "Susan has such an eclectic mix, you never see the same things twice," Machbitz said. "Whenever I wear any piece I got from Susan," said Jennifer Smith, "people will cross the room, come over and ask, Where did you get that? That s the magic of vintage jewelry."
