A $345 cotton t-shirt? Hermes sells everyday men's garment for exorbitant price...but they are worth it!!!

A man can find a plain cotton t-shirt at his local drugstore, usually available in a pack of three for $9. More upscale versions are available for $15 at H&M or $22 at American Apparel.
So why would anyone pay $345 for a cotton t-shirt?
It's all in the H -- for Hermes, that is.
A sales clerk at the Hermes store on Madison Ave. told the Daily News that the shirts come with the brand's initial embroidered on the pocket.

Golda Meir

Golda Meir (Hebrew: גּוֹלְדָּה מֵאִיר‎‎ [ɡolˈda] or [ˈɡolda] [meˈʔiʁ]; earlier Golda Meyerson, born Golda Mabovich (Голда Мабович); May 3, 1898 – December 8, 1978) was a teacher, kibbutznik and politician who became the fourth Prime Minister of the State of Israel.

With $3.3 trillion in GDP, Germany is Europe's biggest economy, and Merkel's reforms are sparking a rebound, with unemployment falling.

Vera Wang

Vera Ellen Wang (Chinese: 王薇薇; pinyin: Wáng Wēiwei; born June 27, 1949) is an American fashion designer based in New York City and former figure skater.

A little take on Tel Aviv:

The residents of Tel Aviv are often accused of being indifferent to the problems of the rest of Israeli citizens. A Hebrew slang expression calls the city "the State of Tel Aviv" - meaning to say that Tel Avivians have their own state within the state of Israel, with its own norms, life style, and rules.

Dizengoff center, or simply "the center" - one of the largest shopping malls in Tel-Aviv.

Street murals make otherwise grayish and dull Tel-Aviv walls much merrier. Most of them (and the best of them) are made by a famous graffiti artist Rami Meiri. This one is on a falafel kiosk on Nordau ave.

This patriotic graffiti is found all over the city, on prestigious avenues and poor neighborhoods. It says "Am Yisrael chai" - "The people of Israel live". This is a traditional phrase that has been sung, danced to, and has uplifted generations of Jewish people.
Here it is, looking quite symbolic on a wall of this demolished building, in the heart of "Ha-tikva" ("The hope") neighborhood, at the corner of Etzel st. and Ha-haganah road.

       Kosher stamps indicate rabbinical approval. These are printed on every food item in Israel. Only a small percentage of the food consumed in Israel is sold without Kosher approval.


There are a lot of elements about the fashion world that wear on you, like going to eight shows a day. And every time you walk in it is like walking into a high school cafeteria: who is wearing what and who is talking to whom and who is sitting where.

iTunes 7

iTunes changed the music industry because it was more convenient than stealing


Hollywood continues to completely ignore that lesson.

in France, the French adore drinking hot chocolate. Chocolat chaud, as hot chocolate is called in France, is divine. and for some reason or another tastes better when you drink it in France as opposed to drinking it in other countries.

Vanessa Hidary
“Another jewy piece by that jewish girl/ in the poetry scene who keeps/ being all jewy, talking about being jewish, writing/ about being jewish …/ jew, jew, jew, jew, jew,” is the battle cry of Vanessa Hidary, the Hebrew mamita. She is a slam poet known for her curves and for dressing like a Puerto Rican; big hoop earrings, tight jeans, hair pulled tightly back in a glistening high ponytail, great red lipstick, high heels.

New York Diaries: 1609 to 2009 [Books]

Nice book....very insightful!!!
New York Diaries 1609 to 2009
New York is a city like no other. Through the centuries, she’s been embraced and reviled, worshipped and feared, praised and battered—all the while standing at the crossroads of American politics, business, society, and culture. Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author Teresa Carpenter, a lifelong diary enthusiast, scoured the archives of libraries, historical societies, and private estates to assemble here an almost holographic view of this iconic metropolis.

I got and
I got and advanced copy of this movie and it is so so

  While traveling for work in a city far from   their   homes, a novelist and a corporate   accountant find themselves in bed together.  Although she's married, and he's seeing someone, their intense attraction turns a one-night stand into an unexpected relationship and a respite from the obligations of daily life. Through a series of moments--some profound, some silly, some intensely intimate--we see a portrait of an evolving relationship that could become the most significant one of their lives. Chris Messina and Marin Ireland turn in outstanding performances. Each exhibits a vulnerability and emotional honesty that allows the audience to connect intensely with the two characters and every moment they share. 28 HOTEL ROOMS is director/screenwriter Matt Ross's first feature, and it is a candid, exquisitely constructed mosaic. The film adeptly illustrates how seemingly inconsequential moments and actions can often mean more than we suspect.

Director: Matt Ross
Cast: Chris Messina, Marin Ireland
In theaters: 2012
