Neil Lane Adventures

Friday, 11:30 a.m.: I dip to Neil Lane for some diamond therapy. Neil welcomes me and I find myself standing next to Daniel Day Lewis and his wife, Rebecca, choosing some estate pieces. I fill my bags with bling. Thank you, Mr. Lane!

Quvenzhané Wallis, New BFF

Friday, 5 p.m.: I swing by the fabulous QVC Oscar Party at The Four Seasons where I chat with Quvenzhané Wallis (aka "Lil Q") about her poochie purses, macaroons (which, for the record, she doesn't like), and what she will be wearing for the Oscars.
