A “Me” Day For “You”

Des Geulasse is so excited to be introducing a new author to the team: Darina Mamelon. Darina has been a longtime friend and confidante of mine- I always find her opinions on raw poultry to be incredibly insightful.  Since she was forcibly removed from her last job and is currently in hiding I saw that as the  perfect opportunity to invite her aboard and we look forward to all the scintillating, in-depth articles she will produce.  -Phyllis   Sometimes when…

Get the Look: The PETA Vic.

As I’m sure you all have heard, Cleveland Fashion Week was out of this world this year- and I’m not just talking about designer Peiter Von Gabrielle’s martian inspired ear muffs. Thanks to my elite blogger status, I had a front row seat to 3 of the most incredible runway shows I have EVER attended and I can say with 75% certainty that fashion in 2017 will be better than it was in 1876, 1922, 1975, 1987, 1991 and 2011…

March Fashion Forecast

This post is actually dedicated to our number one fan, Mildo- who I think has really been with Des Geulasse since the beginning. Mildo, we are so happy you are out of jail again and are recovering. I know last week was hard when both my sister and I were unable to post on the blog due to Primrose being in the ice skating accident and me having to get my nails done, however we are really glad you stuck…

Red is the New Black: How to Stand Out at a Funeral

This past week I had to attend the funeral of a dear friend of mine. It was a hard loss for me and the days leading up to the service found me in a dark place. I spent most of the time alone, reflecting. See, death- for me- always brings up a myriad of questions. Like, what does it meant to be alive? What defines a life well lived? And, most importantly, what does one wear to the funeral? Like most…

Très Parfait Nails

During these cold winter days my sister, Primrose, and I have been getting TOTALLY obsessed with brunch. We let ourselves snooze in a little on the weekends, then we meet up by around 5pm and make the most incredible brunch you can imagine: omelettes, mimosas, waffles… you name it! This past three day weekend my sister and I definitely went a little overboard on the brunching, hah! We literally made so much yogurt we could barely make a dent in it (my…

Rustic Winter Chic

I think we can all agree that sweater weather is the best time of year. I swear there is nothing more cozy about bundling up in tights and a cable knit and heading out for a PSL. LA is just freezing this time of year- this morning it was down to 55 F and I thought all my limbs were about to fall off. I think most people assume true winter is only in the mountains and Russia (and I…
