island time

India Hick's Harbour Island home looks like just my cup o' tea. I love the dark wood floors and light as air white walls. Remind me why I live in NYC again??

happy happy joy joy

I've told you before and I'll tell you again - you must visit Happy Menocal's wonderful online sketchbook. It's a doozy.

hurricane jerk

Despite the threat of a Hurricane EARL the HURL, we are headed to Bermuda for Labor Day.

Looks like we may be indoors sipping alot of these bad boys. When the weather gets dark and stormy, you drink a dark and stormy (or two...or twelve). Here is the recipe for this nectar o' the gods.

the role of brigitte

With the apparent return of curves, T Magazine cast Laetitia Casta as Brigitte Bardot. Take a look.

made ya look

I am loving the Wilfred look book. The swashes of moody watercolors are gearing me up for Fall! See more here.

tennis anyone?

I am digging this photo essay on The NY Times about powerful female tennis players. Noticably absent? The former Mrs. Enrique - Anna Kornikouva. haha.

See more photos here.

scarf it down

Check out the new Hermès site J'aime Mon Carre, a micro site dedicated to the iconic scarf and the young hip women who wear them. I have a question Hermès. Why wasn't I picked to be on your site? If the answer is because I don't own an Hermès scarf (YET!) then I say...Touchè.

So...until then, I'll just be online, looking at this website. Cool.

danny & annie

Danny & Annie from StoryCorps on Vimeo.

I'm warning you...you'll cry. So beautiful and I love the animation style. Via vimeo.

meet your match

I'm a match collector (seriously, it's getting out of hand) so these little beauties caught my eye. Leave it to the Swedes to come up with some serious design genius! Sold at The Swedish Museum of Architecture in Stockholm. Anyone planning a trip? Buy me some!! Found here.

dieppa restrepo

I am LOVING Dieppa Restrepo's line of snazzy unisex oxfords and boots. The peach patent leather is my definite fave. FYI - they come in mint green! I'm in love.

Check out more here.

marcel the shell

I mean...I can't breathe. It's killing me on so many levels. Please love it as much as I do.

I am loving these rare, just released prints of Miss Monroe. If you got an extra $545 lying around, you can pick up a print for your humble abode! See more here.


These leather bracelets by BCBG caught my eye. Love the snotty valley girl sayings. They remind me of my youth!

mon amour

I really am dying to go back to Paris. And if I had my druthers, I'd be staying here. The Hotel Amour...If Marion Cotillard where a hotel, she'd be this place. No doubt.

Genuine Article

A while back I did a post about the chic hardware company Alice Supply & Co. Looks like the trend of pretty tools is catching on. Check out Cynthia Rowley's new line "Genuine Article by Cynthia Rowley". Items range between $10-$25. I love the staple gun!

oh marie

I love this spread for Marie Claire France. Why is it that French magazines are always cooler than their US counter parts? Last I checked, Marie Claire US was kind of a dud.

More images here.

vanessa bruno

Probably my all time favorite "fashion" video. Not only are the clothes gorgeous, but the music is beautiful and Lou Dillon makes it look like a hell of a time.

Check out Vanessa's stand-out collections here.

look what I can do...

And you can too! Just find the juiciest, freshest peaches money can buy. Cut them in half, tell the pit to hit the road. Roast them with brown sugar and butter and voila - you're in business.

Or...you can follow this easy recipe. EAT! You're too thin!!

lil lulu

I love fellow Parson's grad Lulu Wolf's collages. Makes me want to start collaging again. See more of her fabulousness here. You go gurl.
