BOYS ON THE SIDE: The Clothing Item
Embrace a little androgyny with an over-sized blazer. Dress down a short hemline or dress up a pair of slim jeans by channeling Annie Hall, or perhaps your Dad. Customise your suit jacket by pushing up the sleeves or adding a pocket square. Pictured above: Alexander Wang Spring '08 RTW.
LA VIE EN ROSE: The Perfume
Musette votes Series 2: Red Rose by Comme des Garcons as the must-have fragrance. One spritz will leave you smelling like the sweetest rose in bloom, and the aesthetically pleasing bottle will make your eyes smile. Comme's Red Rose is a light departure from the fashion house's more heady and strong scents-perfect for a gal looking for a scent to match her loveliness.
WAITING FOR MY MAN: The DVD
Get inspired by a great music documentary, like Lou Reed Rock and Roll Heart. This compelling film features footage from Warhol's factory, interviews with Patti Smith and David Bowie, and of course the beyond cool music of Lou himself. Rock and Roll Heart brilliantly pays homage to one of our greatest living legends. Get cozy with Lou Reed on a quiet night in, or play this film to get you in the mood for a night out inspired by unbeatable rock music.
I SEE RED I SEE RED I SEE RED: The Beauty Must
Musette does not see a red door and want it painted black, instead red continues to be the perfect way to amplify your look. Paint your nails red and become a sophisticate, paint your lips red and become a show-stopper. Musette follows in the footsteps of every single great starlett, and names red fingers and red toes as must-have. Pictured above: Gucci captured old Hollywood glamour at their Fall '07 RTW show.
GIRL FROM IPANEMA: The Accessory
How could Musette not feature silk scarves as a must-have? A chic scarf can serve a multitude of necessary purposes including headpiece, bag ornament, neck companion and facial sun shield for laying out. How could you get by without one, really? Opt for elegance in Hermes, trend-setting cool in Karen Walker, or vintage vixen with a second hand find, or a trip to your mother, (or grandmother's) closet.

CHAN-DO ATTITUDE: The CD
Chan Marshall aka Cat Power has returned with her second album of covers, entitled Jukebox. Cat Power's characteristically mellow vocals are backed up with a slick sounding band which adds a more polished, jazzy sound to our favourite song kitten. Keep your ears out for new spins on classics by Frank Sinatra and Joni Mitchell, as well as Musette's first pick, a tribute to Dylan, Song to Bobby. Jukebox should most certainly be your next musical investment, as this compilation of upbeat covers and wholehearted tributes serves as the perfect backdrop for entertaining, relaxing, or sweet romancing.
