Clubhouse Closet | New Net-A-Porter Handbags & Sandals

Lookie Lookie 
I found some brand spanking new goodies

I took a trip over to one of our favorite cyber city boutiques
just to see what they got in for the spring season 
and I ran into a few fabulous handbags and sandals & naturally 
I brought them back here to share in the clubhouse 
Check. Them. Out.

The bronze baby came from Chloe
The crochet came from Dolce & Gabbana 
& the snake skin starry number is from none other then the ever amazing Miu Miu

More Dolce 

More Chloe
& bit of Ralph Lauren of course
& then there are these jazzy embellished suede sandal's by Vionnet 
More Miu Miu with a bit of metallic & cherry's embellished with glitter
Roberto Cavalli comes in with acetate flower-appliqued leather sandals
and last but certainly not least we have a crystal embellished leather ballet flats 
from the flats master, none other than 
Tory Burch

These definitely bring about
 Darling Excitement

Clubhouse Music | Clubhouse Members | Rita Ora

Hello, Hello
So I'm not sure if you've all heard of 
Rita Ora

21 year old pop artist/model 
signed to Jay-Z's 
Roc Nation 

You may or may not remember her as the
pretty face that appeared in 
'Over' video a couple years back 

or you may even recognize her from 
Calvin Klein Ad Campaigns that ran last year 

in any event I've been quietly watching her via
web windows
waiting for her to really blow

it seems girly's time has finally come
earlier this week she crept into NY radio stations 
with her boss 
Shawn Carter 

& dropped off her single
'Party & Bullsh*t'
which I enjoyed a great deal.
Fun tune, perfect for summer
 it will definitely be getting tons of play over here in the clubhouse

'Party & Bullsh*t'

Jay-Z & Rita Premiering the single @NY radio stations

I think we should all get into Rita 
I predict that she's going to leave a Darling mark on the entertainment world

Clubhouse Art | George Le Mercenaire

So lately 
I've come across the work of a French artist
by the name of 
George Le Mercenaire
who considers his work to be 
"Pop culture and graphic poetry or just stupid designs"

I found his work to be quite delightful 
funny, fresh, and a bit spunky

Take a look at a few of my favorite pieces of his

that last image is especially precious

What do you 
Darlings think

Clubhouse Icons | Maya Angelou | Clubhouse Book Club | Letter To My Daughter

Hello Guys & Gals
thank you for making your way back too
'The House Of Darling'


I want to share something about myself with all of you
I am a 

I get lost in books
I find that they activate my imagination 
and strengthens my minds abilities

One of my all time favorite people/ authors/ poet is 
no one other then the ever endearing 
Dr. Maya Angelou

Her autobiographical series:
'I know why the caged bird sings'
'Gather together in my name'
'Singin' & Swingin' & Gettin' Merry Like Christmas'
'The Heart Of a Woman'
'All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes'
'A Song Flung Up To Heaven'

have all been read by me & each of them are on my list of favorite & MUST read books

A book of hers that I haven't explored but I do have in my possession 
& I am preparing to read is 
'Letter To My Daughter' 

Here is a short video in which she introduces the book back in 2008

This book isn't just dedicated & wasn't written for any one type of woman 
It was created with love for all women
I do hope that you gals will pick it up & perhaps we can discuss it a bit later 

I will post significant points that I find in the book along the way
I also recommend that you all read her autobiographies if you haven't already 

should you never read a book by her 
at the very least always remember these words

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” 
― Maya Angelou

“A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.” 
― Maya Angelou

“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.” 
― Maya Angelou

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” 
― Maya Angelou

“I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.” 
― Maya Angelou

Pan Am On The Telly!

Who else here is as much of a
Pan Am 
addict as I am

The drama, the scandal, the love, the loss, the suspense

March 25th 
& this new
'Good Christian Belles'
situation that's gonna be airing on ABC
