Friday Night Romper & Beach Chic.
Because I’ve had MORE time than usual to think about it, I’ve been thinking about what in the world I’m going to wear tonight to hear my favorite Motown band play live by the ocean this evening. Thanks to J.Crew, 75% of my outfit was delivered yesterday! Because I am vacationing in the fabulous Seaside, Florida, I knew the ring below would be positively perfect. I’m...

Jamie Hayon and one gorgeous restaurant
I have been continuing to explore the May 2010 issue of Canadian House and Home and fell in LOVE with the chair below. There are both indoor and outdoor versions. The chair is by the young Spanish artist and designer, Jamie Hayon. The chairs are part of the Showtime Collection he’s designed for B + D Home. Jamie has worked on the amazing La Terraza del Casino restaurant in his...
subscribe to NONSENSE!
HELLO! After advising a phenomenally inspirational friend last night to add a subscription aspect to her website, I thought I should probably promote mine a little more as well. Not that I update nearly as regularly, but, when I do- it will email you to let you know instead of having to check all of the time (because of my irregularity with blogging)! So, to direct your attention to the email...
I forgot how much I love this movie. Fate. Wouldn’t it be loverly to think so? ser·en·dip·i·ty –noun 1.an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident. 2.good fortune; luck: the serendipity of getting the first job she applied for.
my new favorite magazine.
Well, VOGUE aside (because you simply can’t compare VOGUE with another magazine), I have a new favorite publication. It is called: THE GENTLEWOMAN. Go ahead, laugh at its name, but wait to be in awe of its pale pink cover and exclusively raw (and real) interviews. I love its style. It’s fresh, honest, direct, and quirky. And, let me tell you, I receive A LOT of magazines. So many...
Anna Spiro's Bungalow
After loving the closet spread in House and Home, I purchased the May issue over the weekend after eyeing it at Borders. I immediately fell in love with this spread of Australian Interior Designer, Anna Spiro. I was delighted to find she is the blogger behind Absolutely Beautiful Things, which I visit frequently. Browsing through her blog this evening, I found that she of course mentioned the...
They call it spring fever?
Please excuse my lack of posts the past few days. I am in the midst of moving and do not currently have an internet connection in my new residence. Me? Without internet? Shocking I know. Anyways, I wanted to share this song with you because ever since I heard it live last week, I haven’t seemed to get it completely out of my mind! I love the live saxophone! I actually burned a CD this...
'Scuse Moi - More is More!
Clutter is BEAUTIFUL! It’s not only the fact that she used to work for Domino magazine that I follow Rita Konig’s posts on The Moment blog religiously. It’s because she gets it and I agree with EVERYTHING she says, does, and features. The very first line of her most recent post states: “I find abundance very reassuring.” Yes and yes! Look how fabulous this...
It's a HAPPY FRIDAY ... in these shoes.
I thought I’d post these gorgeous knotted-toe ballerina flats from the Prada spring collection available at Bergdorf Gooodman. I think they are so beautiful and fun for summer! Of course, they are in a peony foulard twill print! love. love. love. HAPPY WEEKEND!
Are you as amazed as I am? Trying not to think of the oil spill, I have been gluing myself to VOGUE. French VOGUE, American VOGUE, Italian VOGUE, VOGUE Living Australia, etc. A new VOGUE is my version of Audrey Hepburn’s Tiffany’s since nothing bad can ever happen to you amidst the hundreds of glossy pages. No, only good things of course! These fantastical things include the trip...
Love to the Gulf.
A roommate used to always comment on the fact that she’d never seen me cry. And no, I do not cry that often. I think it’s a matter of when it’s warranted. For me, something has to hit just the right chord and feel almost unsurpassable. So, no, I never cried over The Notebook, or a past relationship, or anything that wasn’t real and couldn’t be fixed or handled...
