The 500 series by Gucci celebrates all that is sexy about the open road with a full line of travel accessories, including driving gloves and shoes. And to take the collection to the next level, Gucci and Fiat have partnered in celebration of the retailers’ 90th birthday to unveil the ultimate machine that will bring together car enthusiasts and fashion devotees: the Gucci Fiat 500. Available in white or black, this super pimpin’ ride features the classic red and green racing stripe (which matches the bag, shoes etc.) and the GG emblem throughout. Our favorite logo spot: the hubcaps. Pre-orders can be made on 500byGucci.com. If the car is too big of a look for you, scale it down. The equally “ganza” accessories line can be found at the Gucci Store in Crystals at CityCenter. Priced around $23,000.

My Object of Affection

My most prized possessions are my cocktail and spirits books. I have close to 1,000, and they include Jerry Thomas’ How to Mix Drinks, A Bon Vivant’s Companion (1862), one of the first cocktail recipes book ever written. I do also own the first French treatise (1820) about distillation of grain and potato spirits ever written by a woman. I can’t disclose the source where I find these books; it is too precious. But for the most part I buy them during my travels from antique bookstores and private collectors.
