As the Real Estalker reminds us, Knight wasn't the only Grey's Anatomy cast member with a home in Los Feliz. Kate Walsh is still trying to sell the mansion she bought in 2007 for $4.75 million. That home is on the market for $4.295 million .Katherine Heigl has been trying to sell a three-bedroom home in the same area off and on for the past year or two. That home is currently off the market.

Aside from this dial imagery (and likely some new message on the caseback), the watch is the same interesting Chronospace model that is new for this year. I did a more comprehensive write up on the Breitling Chronospace watches here. In short, the new collection uses their Superquartz COSC Chronometer movements with a range of functions, and comes in a 48mm wide steel case and mesh steel bracelet. Not sure on price, but expect a premium over the non-limited Chronospace models.

Shoe shopping is an addicting habit. There are sandals for the summer, boots for the fall, heels for work and heels for a night out on the town. Each shoe can serve a particular purpose and match an appropriate occasion. If you find yourself buying too many shoes for a particular season or occasion, try searching for shoes that can carry you from one season to the next. It sounds like a no brainer, but it can be hard to resist all the gorgeous specialty shoes that seem to call our name whenever we walk buy a store display window, look through a magazine, or surf the web.
That's why we couldn't help but feature Nicole Brudage Ankle Pumps ($734). It's the perfect transitional and almost seasonless shoe. They completely work for the Summer given its cut out and vampy leather wrap around your ankle. And for the Fall, you could still wear a dress and skirt with tights or pair with straight and wide leg trousers. Brudage's Ankle Pumps are in a warm chestnut brown color which is versatile enough to compliment all of your outfits. Heel measurements: 4 inches.
In the past we've written about the special limited edition watches created by Panerai to celebrate the annual Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge sailing contests. Now one of the nautical timepieces has turned up in a totally different setting: on Sylvester Stallone's wrist in the new shoot-'em-up action flick The Expendables (above). This isn't just another example of pricey product placement, however; Stallone is a longtime Panerai fan who's credited with introducing the brand to the U.S., and the watch, a limited edition Luminor 1950 Regatta Rattrapante 44 mm, is his personal wrist candy. The split-second chronograph is coated in Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) for durability while sailing or fighting bad guys, and only 500 numbered examples were produced.

You can dip your toes into sous-vide cooking, preparing Australian ocean trout with Kalamansi and Nashi Pear with Shaun Hergatt.

Add some ruffled flair to a basic evening gown with this Amaya Ruffled Satin Clutch by Christian Louboutin. Simple black satin gets major embellishment from two rows of over-sized ruffle details. The inside is lined in Louboutin's signature red twill and features a single pouch pocket and designer stamped plaque. Magnetic closure and no shoulder strap whatsoever. A clutch perfect for adding texture and glam to a monochromatic all-black look but just as great for pairing with a bright jewel-toned gown (a little red dress perhaps?). $895
Document scanning is not usually a glamorous activity and the equipment, no matter how high-end, is usually a bit of an eyesore but Fujitsu's newly decked out scanners are downright attractive. Two of Fujitsu's most popular ScanSnap models, the S1500 and S1300, have been given special limited-edition upgrades in honor of the 50th anniversary of PFU Imaging Solutions Europe. The scanners feature an Urushi lacquer coating applied using an ancient Japanese layering technique and a logo and special flying eagle image created out of pure gold powder. The scanners can be purchased via special order directly from Fujitsu for $3,200 (model S1500) or $2,200 (model S1300).
Alejandro Ingelmo's ($1013) bondage-like black heeled boots are ultra sexy. They feature an extreme heel (just a little over 4 inches), a platform sole and a rounded yet slightly pointed and turned up toe. What really makes these boots stand out is their leather criss cross straps all along the vamp up past your ankles against a suede backdrop. Although the leather and suede are both in black, the contrasting materials look amazing together. As a subtle but important touch, the top of the boot also has swooping edge, complimenting the criss cross straps. Ingelmo's Ankle Boots are quite vampy and can turn the most conservative of ensembles into an undercover sex kitten.
