Wanted: a Sublet

My new obsession is eco-friendly materials and I've been doing a lot of research. So when I came across this team of designers named Sublet (who met through a craigslist ad when both were looking for roommates) with the super fab collection of eco friendly apparel I was immediately sucked in. How simple and yet cute are these??

I need these tap shorts in my life...

David Lynch has collaborated with Au Revior Simone in creating a new music video "Shadows." This video is so Lynch-esque, it puts a different spin on the Au Revior Simone's sweet music. You can watch the video here.

Best weekend ever!

Last Thursday was my birthday and a day started with Doughnut Plant Doughnuts makes turning the THREE-ZERO pretty easy.

From Thursday to Saturday, it was fun filled. But on Saturday we did something I've been planning for a very, very long time: dinner at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. whoa, and i mean, whoa... what-an-experience! The local foods, the beautiful presentation and service, eating on a farm, it was A-MAH-ZING. Blue Fin, Caviar, Chicken Mushrooms, farm fresh Mountain Magic Tomatoes...

It is truly an experience I will never forget. I am so lucky to have so many great friends and family that made this birthday the best ever.

Occult of Culp

After many, and i say MANY, months (could it be years?) of waiting, Heather Culp finally has her new site up. Its filled with new stories and beautiful and mysterious images. If there were an occult of Heather, I'd join that.

Here's looking at Yoo!

I haven't followed the new Spring lines too closely this Fashion Week, been too busy wanting and coveting clothes for fall. But my attention were averted when my friend, Patty Yoon, sent me the new Women's lookbook for Hyden Yoo. Patty has been doing the menswear design for a couple of seasons now but they've expanded to the women's line and here it is.

I'll have that mustard colored trench, the dress, the skirt... oh all the clothes in the world and such a small wallet with little money to spare...

My Safe-ty Net

Coats are a bit of my safety net, especially in the winter. My body temperature usually runs cold so I rarely take off my coat, which means I could be wearing a mixture of anything underneath.

I love these Rebecca Turbow Coats and for a low $190?! I want them all. Special 10% off with promo code: safe! Go get here!

in the woods...

Lately, I have been into this band "Woods," super lo-fi or as Pitchfork calls them "spooky campfire folk." Either way, this will be my soundtrack to this gloomy Wednesday.

Love Vigilantes

Some stuff I've finished recently... Been rethinking my nautical flags and have some changes in the future, including that of how I use my fabrics. I sometimes feel like I'm reverting back to the early 19th century, that doesn't make any sense right now. You'll see...

Anyways, hope you like these.

oh my stars

You know my love for the woods, camping, lingerie, and thigh highs. The Lake and Stars Spring Lookbook (by the talented Tom Hines) looks like its tapped into the recesses of my brain. A little creepy, a little funny, and all intriguing. Enjoy...

A-float, in the sea...

Renilde Depeuter's blog has been regularly updating her blog with the pincushions (nautical theme!) she's been making. She's also been "playing with trash," who knew trash could be so pretty? Now, I just wish I knew where to get one of those pincushions...

My Mega Wish List

Daily Candy is sometimes the death of me... Always opening up the doors to shopping temptation, things I probably should NEVER find out about. So when I opened up my morning email from them, I screamed a (silent) "NOOOOOOOO!"

Even though I can't afford any of these, I did a little window shopping at Domahoka for my fall wardrobe.

Steven Alan Dora Pant ($240) Could I ever pull this off? I can dream...,
APC Short Coat ($420) I love a good grandpa jacket,
