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…

Impress Your Friends with this Easy Marilyn Monroe Halloween Costume

Growing up in the Geulasse household, my sister and I were often told by our mother that Marilyn Monroe was a starlet hussy who would burn in the fiery pits of hell because she was too beautiful. Then our mother would turn to us and say, “You both are so lucky you weren’t blessed with looks. You will live long lives. But you’ll still burn in hell.” And then she would leave the house for a week or two. Hah,…

Never Shower Again with this DIY Salt Scrub

Honestly the California drought has never looked so good on my skin- I cannot thank Los Angeles skincare guru Lili Lolla (of Lol-la Your Skin Looks Great fame) enough for her amazing recipe that she was kind enough to share with the Des Geulasse team. It’s literally the best excuse not to shower! It’s so wonderful to feel clean without the waste of water- and it’s SO easy if you’re trying to get out of the house fast and don’t…

The Art of Skinstugi

I was first introduced to the traditional Japanese art of Kintsugi by a dear friend and fellow fashionista, Miyu Topa Topa. One day, as we were both sitting outside drinking white wine spritzers and watching the sun set, Miyu said the most beautiful and profound thing I have ever heard… it went a little something like this: I see so many imperfections in the world, you know? You see this sunset, Phyllis? It is not perfect. You see this glass…
