did any of you watch oprah's interview with ralph lauren and his family at his colorado ranch last wednesday? LOVE. serious jealously over here. i was trying to get ready for work while watching the episode, and the images kept pulling me in! before i knew it i'd be sitting on the couch again, glued to the screen in awe.
in case you missed it, i rounded up some pictures of the property (and took a few shots of my tv screen while i was watching!). the mix of southwest and americana is so RL (duh) and so gorgeous in this setting.
i can't decide whether i'd rather stay in the teepee or the main house! i guess i'll wait til i get an invite to make that decision ...
i loved what ralph and oprah kept saying about how his brand is a lifestyle. it's not just clothes, it's a way of life. and when he creates, he looks for the story behind it. it's not just a fancy dress, he has to imagine who the woman is who's wearing it, what's she like, where does she live, where is she going, and so on. it's a beautiful idea.
