This week's Corner View was supposed to be wordless. But I just can't resist. I went to the Lupus Bag Lady Luncheon this morning in Beverly Hills. One of my dearest friends, C, invites me every year. And while the cause is a worthy one and I'd do anything for dear, dear C, the luncheon is so over-the-top Hollywood, Beverly Hills stereotype that it's worth going just to gawk. The top picture is my dining room, right before I left. Someone called me and I snapped what I saw in that moment.
The next photo is a bunch of paparazzi inside the hotel snapping the few celebrities that were attending.
The third photo, my favorite, is one of the bags that was auctioned. It was a chartreuse silk evening bag with a gold serpent clutch and was donated by Elizabeth Taylor. Last time I looked, it was up to $1200. Oy.
The next photo is one of the godawful ceiling fixtures at the hotel. Very Beverly Hills.
The final photo is my favorite. The front of a stretch Rolls that Jermaine Jackson got into.
Sometimes, I can't believe I live here, it's so ridiculous.
