summer knits

This combines a few things I can't get enough of lately: knits (but for summer?  that's crazy talk!) and collars.  With the unappealing exchange rate though, I think I'm destined to love it from afar.

Jelly Fish

My Grandparents used to rent a house in Greenport, NY for the summer, where I used to go hunting for the most fantastic jelly fish I've ever seen in person.  They were enormous, exotic creatures that I would capture in pails and examine until my parents made me release them back into the water.  A few times they would sneak up on me and I'd get stung, but that's par for the course in all worthwhile relationships, I guess.

Mad Metro

Commuting into the city on Metro North from Westchester is always much more romantic than taking the subway.  This morning I came in to work straight from my parents' house and the hustle and bustle of the commute had a much more civilized feel.  Very Mad Men (before Don moved to the city).

Lacroix, ooh la la

Ladybugs are always lovely.  Side note based on the 1st dibs item description- are the '90s vintage?  Am I super old?

tool time

It's a little early for Father's Day, but I found this adorable cookie gift basket just perfect for the occasion!

Had a meeting at Saks this afternoon and was struck by the delightful chevron floors at Stella McCartney.  Good design from head to toe.

the way we were

I love looking at old photos of NYC.  There's almost a thousand images of NYC from the past 100 years that are now available to the public for the first time.  Glorious!

This last image of 40th St and 6th Ave is right where I used to work!  Oh, how times have changed since WWII.

all the good ones are taken

I'm on the prowl for a dress to wear to the hubby's graduation in a few weeks.  All the ones I like seem to be sold out in my size.  The hunt continues...

Comfort Box

How sweet just to have a little something like this in your pocket to cheer you up whenever you need it.

Collage Master

Filip Dujardin is living the collage dream.  I'd love to see him try to build any of these fantastical structures.

Urchins Reinterpreted

It's always exciting to see artist reinterpreting everyday materials in their work.  In this case, it's particularly exciting to see the form that Jennifer Maestre gave to her colored pencils.  Sea Urchins are a creature I can't get enough of!

the dumbest/awesomest thing I've seen all day

Hello Kitty Airlines!  Sometimes things are so dumb they're just awesome; (and vice versa) this is definitely one of those times!  Can't wait to fly the kitty skies.  The meals might just be the best part.

to the point

Loving the simplicity of these shapes together.  There's always a place for architectural jewelry in my heart.


This packaging is SO enticing, it's making my mouth water for strawberry juice (something I'm pretty sure I've never had, but need to try).  Who knew the juice box could be so appealing?

vroom, vroom!

This skirt would go well with a motorcycle.  And by that I mean, standing next to a motorcycle.  I road a Vespa in a skirt once, and the dismount was not so lady like.

bead the best little lamp you can

that goes for you too.
