Pug Love

If I knitted, I'd like to knit things like these.  The knitter calls this her "pug in a sweater".  Love.

Perfectly Placed

I saw these adorable place setting paper mats from Cake Vintage at Anthro.  Wildly unnecessary, but that's kind of the point.

Bergdorf, you've done it again

The best holiday window displays are always at Bergdorf Goodman.  This year was "Wish You Were Here" featuring all different modes of transportation.  Even the wind couldn't keep me from stopping to marvel.

This year they published a coffee table book on all their window displays.  It was $500.  I'll just have to stick to admiring these photos for now.

Inspiration by the Times

I was reading this article in the Times just before Christmas about neat freaks getting through the holidays (which I can't entirely relate to) and I loved this spread of tartan, greens and candy Mary McDonald laid out for her gingerbread decorating party.  Too bad I'm too old to be invited.  Maybe I'll swipe her aesthetic for a future Christmas decorating frenzy.

I can hardly contain myself...

... but I don't have to!  I've just stumbled upon a vintage Christmas blog that will shower me with visual yuletide ecstasy all year round!  The author makes wreaths out of vintage ornaments.  See delicious specimen below:

Jelly Apple

Got mani pedis at a baby shower this weekend and got Essie's Jelly Apple.  It's the happiest shade of red I've ever seen!  Now I must own it.  Anyone know where to find Essie in Ithaca?

This rocker is perfect for cuddling up on cold winter days.

tree jewelry

This pom pom garland puts a kitchy twist on a classic.  Christmas, I can't get enough of you!

Guns n Sequins

Wouldn't this dress be the most adorable thing to wear to the business school's winter formal?  Maybe not the most appropriate, but certainly the most adorable.

short and stout

I love these mini teapot tea steepers.  I found this great action shot of one of them from Batik.

Dreaming of a Sunny Christmas

These tartan shades really put me in the mood for Christmas!  You know, for all the reflection off the snow.

oh, baby

I'm in charge of the decorations for a baby shower that's coming up.  I did the necessary research on Martha, where I found these adorable and easy to decorate cupcakes.  Then I spend a significant amount of time at A.C. Moore.  There is definitely a hot glue gun in my future.

on season shoe love

These are more appropriate for chillyness.  Not so much for snow though, so I'd have to wear them quickly.

off season shoe love

Too bad the sale price is still pretty obscene.  sigh.

Go Big Red!

I was just looking through the Cornell Store's website to get a jump on holiday shopping for the in-laws and came across this little guy.  I wonder how well it sells.  I know I'd love to snap it up!

I'm thankful for all the pretty things...

... like this necklace!  It's laser cut.  Luckily, all those frantic laser cutting appointments at school didn't jade me.

I miss crazy people

I went to NYC for a day last week.  Got a few blocks in and saw a guy walking around with a cat on his head.  This is the stuff I miss!  You never know what craziness you'll encounter around the corner.  The city never disappoints.

Paper Performance

This paper art makes me want to make things.  I love art like that.  It also makes me want to go to Japan.  I'm working on that one.

Cute Alert!

I've found it, the cutest blog of all time.  This one is about cute food, and it's called... cutest food.  It's one to keep your eye on, especially if you need a little pick me up.  Here's the cutest of the cutest:

as promised... knits

Here's my top picks of the knits from Asos.  Santa, are you reading?

Where have you been?!

I just discovered Asos (I know, I'm a little late) and don't understand why they never introduced themselves to me sooner!  Free shipping and everything!  They're right up my alley!  First the jewelry.  Tomorrow...knits.

Another Reason to go to Madrid

SpY is a Madrid based artist who likes to mess with the urban landscape.  It's even more amusing now that I'm removed from my urban roots.  I don't love to be messed with.

wall art

I love this print of Coney Island.  It's just how I'd like to think of Coney Island, bright and a little out of focus.

This vintage... blanket sewn together to be a dress?  whatever... is SO sweet!  If I end up getting it, I think I would hem off the fringe.

Getting into the season

Who can't use another pair of legwarmers?  OK, so I don't have any in my current rotation, but these would keep me cozy all winter long.

so wrong, so funny

My bestie is Korean, so she's kinda obsessed with the Angry Little Asian Girl.  Sometimes I look for things from their shop to get her, but then I decide, they're just too offensive to be sporting street style!  You never know who's gonna want to kick your ass on the subway!  Here she is in action...
