Looking for an excuse to spend the day or, better yet, a long weekend in Newport, RI?  I am, and I've found a perfect one.  Flipping through Rhode Island Monthly's March issue during lunch today I happened upon this lovely photograph on the last page.  It's of a vintage vanity case by Morabito, Paris.  Their motto?  "Luxury is not exceptional.  It is the exceptional which is luxurious."  I could not agree more.  This lovely artifact is from the private collection of Doris Duke.  If you, too, have fallen in love with this photo, then you must make your way to Newport for this exhibit:
