feather your nest.

pretty sure my wall needs one of these way pretty prints from the wild unknown that heather recently alerted me to. also, any site called the wild unknown gets immediate love from me.

just dreamy.

my snoozer loser winona dress has been on heavy rotation this summer so i can't wait to add a few of their fall pieces to my wardrobe. i mean, these prints!!

and what about this necklace?!? it's epic.
this blouse might be my fave.
but i am a SUCKER for a jumpsuit. true story.
the best part about snoozer loser is that a couple of months ago i had the good fortune of interviewing sonia, the gal behind the line, and she is rad as rad can be (and by rad i mean she spends her weekends on a commune upstate, does a ton of the dying and printing herself, is super sweet, quick to laugh, and tends to send you home with gifts like a crazy bananas necklace that she took right off her own neck and put on mine. i died.). don't you love knowing your favorite outfits were made by someone with talented hands and a wonderful heart? yeah, me too.

a kiss about palm trees speeding by...

i'm kind of obsessed with francesca lia block's weetzie bat. and i have been since i devoured it way way way way way back in 1990. i remember reading about the book's awesomeness in sassy magazine and making my dad take me to the library so i could check it out. it has stayed with me ever since. so it goes without saying that i am also kind of obsessed with this weetzie-inspired photo shoot that the wildfox girls just did. (which totally has flb's blessing, btw.) i have the sudden urge to drive down sunset in a 1965 t-bird and eat an oki-dog and dig my toes in the sand by the sea and have magical shangri-l.a. adventures. soon. soon!

the city of letterly love.

i love words. and that means i also love letters. and the letters i love the very most are those created by jessica hische, the gal behind the daily drop cap phenomenon. if i were in philly right now, i'd be heading straight over to my very favorite old city shop (art in the age!) for the opening of her letterpressed drop caps show. if you're not in philly either, you can get a little peek at the show above, or just feast your eyes on the letters below. i want them all.

good wood.

oh, hey, wow, it's been awhile, huh? i'm pretty sure time moves at warp speed during the summer, but that may just be due to the brain freeze a constant diet of popsicles, shaved ice, and soft serve has afflicted me with. plus, my laptop burns like the dickens which i truly appreciate in the cold winter months (it's like a little lap warmer!) but is the last thing i want near me during this nyc heatwave. but aaaanywayz, leave it to a shoe to resurrect my inspiration. i have yet to jump on the clog wagon (don't get me wrong, i love me a hasbeens and a no. 6 as much as the next girl, i just don't love the pricetag), but these swedish beauties (brought to my attention by my boss, the queen of clogs) might do me in. pretty, no?

many, many years ago, when i was a wee young thing, prone to wearing flip flops with socks and posing particularly unladylike for photos [that's me on the left, obvz], i met an awesome girl [right] who, it turns out, would be a friend for life. there may be an entire country between us, but that don't stop the love. today is her birthday, and when she arrives in new york later this week we are going to celebrate like friends who have known each other nearly their entire lives should: with good food, good wine, and the very best company. happy birthday, jeanette!! i can't WAIT to see you.
