New blog, new era

For 2010 i am starting a new blog! I needed a new slate and I am pleased to report that my fiance Kelly is going to be joining me for this one.
I super encourage anyone who has been following this blog to switch over to the new one! I think the content is going to be really great with tons of inspiration.


Come find us here...

Mantis, Sam Francis

I'm excited to see this painting when the MOCA 30th Anniversary show opens on the 15th! I love looking at art with such an emotional use of color. mmm... blue.

rocker suede

I might be obsessed with suede. And the new vests for Fall from Hayden-Harnett are too perfect...
The second one reminds me of something one of the "band-aids" would wear on Almost Famous. So just in case you are tempted by the leather shorts that Elle says are going to be a staple for this coming season it might be good to look towards more flattering leather options!

model luv

I really love the new Miu Miu campaign for Fall. Just gorgeous fashion. And I'm enthralled with this new girl Hannah Holman. I thought she was adorable in the Summer Urban Outfitters catalogs...

but she's flawless in this ad.

Style Inspiration: Janelle Monae'

Love this girls look! The picture above of new artist Janelle Monae' is featured in the September issue of Elle (which is quite good btw, aside from a bit about leather shorts) and I was totally taken with her.
Saddle shoes!!! I love that they are back! I want to channel her with these shoes by F-troupe

Hot Acid

Acid wash jeans spotted in the fall '08 collection @ Topshop

So I originally balked at the sight of the acid wash jeans that came out last summer. They just look so... so 80's. And I still haven't gone out and purchased a pair for myself (nor am I likely to) but I have been able to reconcile myself to them and concede that they can look nice on women over the age of 16. Like almost anything else they can be made elegant and age appro with a good jacket and grown up accessories. In fact I think they will look a lot better this fall then they did this summer.

Acid wash at Balmain, Spring 2009

Elegant acid wash, street style.

So don't take that pair you bought at Urban Outfitters down to Buffalo Exchange just yet, there's still hope for them this coming season!

This makes me so happy...

This is the best thing I've seen on The Selby...maybe ever. I really want to go to London and go to this bar!

Cheap Thrills

Happy Monday!

I'm still sort of in a food coma from the most gyro sandwich I've ever had. Sure we had to drive to Northridge to get it, but it was honestly up there for the most delicious thing I've ever tasted in a pita, and also the size of two regular gyros. From this carb and lamb induced stupor I rise to give you two things that amused me this weekend...

Firstly, an amazing display of photography at the Getty by Jo Ann Callis

And secondly the winner of the Hemingway look-alike contest...

What more do you need, I ask you?

trend: cut-out wedges

I just got the new Urban Outfitters Catalog in the mail and I like that they featured more shoes and accessories. Fitting that the focus isn't on the clothes since the cover model isn't even wearing any... anyway. I love all the cut-out wedges!
Dolce Vita

Jefferey Campbell (i am especially covetous of these)

Deena & Ozzy
These are very much a trend for this summer, but will also look cute in the fall with colored tights peeking through!

I was glancing through a rather nice book entitled The Upset: young contemporary art, when i fell totally in love with this image by British artist Ray Caesar. I sort of feel like I'm floating there with her... delicious.
