that's my sweet tooth talking.

speaking of australians, those incredibly awesome gals behind frankie magazine (my love for which is EPIC, btdubs), have done it again on the cookbook tip. as if afternoon tea wasn't awesome enough, now they've added sweet treats to their canon. talk about a perfect pair. i just want to live in these books. seriously.

on taupe of the world!

sorry bout that post title, i'm just practicing for my next career as a nail polish namer. gah! i would be so good! i got bad puns in my genes, just ask my dad. anywhoz, i have a completely fickle heart when it comes to nail color commitment (last week was "tart deco", the week before was "lucky, lucky lavender"), but THIS, this color might be around for awhile. i'm so diggin' the smokey taupe* ("over the taupe" to be exact) and it actually looks a bit darker on the nail, with even a hint of purple. perfect.

*you know how i know that this color is especially awesome? because when heather and i met up for some delicious arepas at caracas, we discovered that we were BOTH WEARING IT. out of the massive rainbow of colors at the nail salon, we both picked this one. talk about a moment. i mean, she's not my bff for nothin', right.

year of the dress.

Uniform Project Picture Book from The Uniform Project on Vimeo.


remember the uniform project? well, it's almost over. and this little vid is a pretty adorable recap. i swear, i wear something different every day and still don't look half as cute as sheena. must. learn. to accessorize. oh, and you've got 10 more days to donate to their cause: puttin' kids in school. cool.

my new favorite late-night host.

jimmy fallon, who knew you had such awesome taste in magazines?!? did any of you guys see this on friday?? i didn't, but after getting an "OMG, i just saw bust on tv!" text from my awesome friend amber i tracked it down online and completely freaked out. seeing jimmy give some love to this glossy product of my blood, sweat, and tears (ok, maybe not blood. but definitely sweat. and a few tears.) totally made my weekend. men we love indeed.

coachella, ella, ella, eh eh eh.

palm trees, sundresses, side braids, beat-to-hell brogues...seeing the ladies of edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros (the goodness of which i just discovered on my last trip to l.a.) kinda makes me wish i'd made the trek to coachella. it's been awhile. p.s. new york, what happened to spring?!?

kate the great.

when i saw this tres adorable photo of kate over on her lovely blog hello lindello, i just had to repost it here cause it's too damn cute! i hate to admit it but i might be over the top knot? and my hair isn't long enough for a decent side braid which leaves me with the most boring coif ever. so i am totally feeling the headwrap vibe for the spring/summer months and i think this is the perfect way to do it. i'm not sure i can rock a turban, or a grey gardens-esque ensemble (though lord knows i may try), but this! this is awesomely accessible. thanks for the style spark kate!

ramona west is the best.

just a few spring outfit inspiration photos from one of my fave online vintage joints, ramona west. i seriously can't wait to rock a pair of platform sandals with some dainty little ankle socks. tiny dresses, rompers, tank tops, and short high-waisted skirts? that pretty much sums up my warm-weather wardrobe.

cute overload.

oh man, did any of you new yorkers catch she & him at the bowery ballroom this week? i got to see this absurdly adorable duo on tuesday and the show was like a gigantic ray of sunshine in the midst of a dreary, drenching rainstorm. seriously, it was one of the happiest performances i’ve been to in ages. zooey bounced around with her perfect hair (which is even longer and more enviable than usual!) and made me decide i need a tambourine? they had a totally rockin’ band and the lovely chapin sisters sang back-up but the tune that truly sent chills down my spine was when zooey and matt took the stage alone and played you really got a hold on me (my extreme love for which i can trace back to one of my fave movies of the 90s…mermaids!!). i think i literally swooned. i can’t find a vid of it from the show i was at, but i found this rendition that’s almost as awesome. cutest. band. evz.
