Raina vs Diane Von Furstenburg

There is a new column that has piqued my interest

"Moonlighting, a new Curbed column in which the talented Raina Cox of If the Lamp Shade Fits takes a look at design players whose first job may not have been design. Some triumph, some flop, and some should never, ever give up their day job"

Love reading Raina's blog postings so this should be just as tasty.

The first column is about Diane Von Furstenburg and her sidelining for Sears.  Great read.  

Even better is that she is good - see below table seating
