dreamy abode

how wonderful is this lil' casa? i especially love the bits of ethnic print paired with wall art framed in blonde wood and the john robshaw bed linens.
so terrifically lovely and inspiring! (if you want more, see the owner's darling online boutique bird or her brick and mortar stores in brooklyn, n.y.c.)

on a separate note, i'm starting a long overdue DIY project involving my treasured
hayward wakefield chair. the seat cushion has been in need of repair and i think i have
found the fabric. i'll be blogging my progress. yay!

that teenage feeling

clogs. they've been happening again ever since mr. lagerfeld slipped them on his models for the
s/s 2009 collection for chanel. immediately upon viewing those lovelies, i thought of the ones that i bought when i was seventeen. i wore them with these soft, worn bell-bottoms that i thrifted at ragstock for five dollars. they were spectacular. what i wouldn't give to have those again. why did i get rid of them in the first place? hindsight, right?

but, i think that i can get a little bit of that back this fall with these sweet little ladies.
at least i can pretend, right?

you can take the girl outta minnesota but you can't take the minnesota outta the girl...

off to the homeland this week. yay! the best part of minnesota is that
in the summer the lakes are divine and since it so blazin' hot, it's the place to be.
au revoir, darlings! xx.
oh and by the way, for the record, if playboy still looked like that, i'd get a subscription. isn't it dreamy? i've seen that issue in person and it's
as sunny and charming as it looks.

lonely no more

lingerie is a tricky thing. these gals at lonely hearts have pretty much nailed it.
beautiful styling and photography as well.
