Ladies' Day Gloves

I am on the hunt for a new item... I am shopping vintage to find some dainty lady's day gloves, short, soft and springy to never leave the house without. Lets bring back some class this sunny season with hats, gloves and summer dresses.

Lara Stone

All the talk is on Lara Stone, well actually her body, these days. As a size 4, Lara has found herself popularly representing women more "realistically" with her "curves". Whatever or however she is representing, Lara has found herself one of Karl Lagerfeld's favorties, on the cover of American Vogue, and working semi-exclusively with Prada for New York and Milan Fashion Week. Recently engaged to British Comedian, David Walliams, she says she although the engagement was just announced at the end of last month, and she hasn't really started to make wedding plans "because I haven't been home at all since we got engaged." She does, however, know what she'll be wearing: "I asked Riccardo [Tisci] to make my dress."
Check out this month's cover of LOVE featuring her in one of the eight issue covers (other covers include Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Daria Werbowy).

Louise Grey

I love some pieces from Louise Grey's collections.
"The emphasis was firmly on fun at the Louise Gray Autumn/Winter 2010 presentation. Models danced around the room to the funky beats of the DJ in the corner, while Louise Gray (wearing her own red patterned trousers and underwear-as-outerwear) stood around and chatted to visitors. The clothes hung like artwork from large boards set up around the room, and people were encouraged to interact with the designs by putting their faces through the holes like children at a fairground.

Louise Gray wants to let us know she has arrived, and that she is brighter, bolder and more fearless than ever. Fabric was the most important element, with unusual 3D textures created by Louise’s experimental quilting and devore techniques. Textures, patterns and shapes were clashed together in a fabulous explosion of colour, and silhouettes ranged from masculine shorts to draped, feminine dresses. Another highlight was the deep-dyed sheepskin designs which had a mad-cap, but cosy, appeal. Not to be worn by the faint-hearted!"
Thanks for the report....

Globe Lamp

Last night on Rambam I noticed in an apartment building window this beautiful little globe lamp. It gave off such warm light.

When they kick out your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
And even shoot us
But oh the guns of Brixton

Shot down on the pavement
Waiting in death row
His game was survivin'
As in heaven as in hell

-The Clash

The Rules of Attraction

Great movie....


Maynard? What are you doing these days???

Maynard from Tool (which my dear sister has sweet dreams to) is digging up the soil in Arizona to make wine.... yes that's right. In a few weeks a documentary about his wine-making is coming out called Blood Into Wine. (Check out the Trailer) More importantly check out his wine... Caduceus. I can completely understand why he would want to be in Jerome, Arizona... it's an amazing place - - .

I think it's one of the best places to grab a camera and go for the day. If you do make it there.. they have an amazing vintage store... it's almost old-eery but we found some really great treasures in there.

Hey shout out to Rachel and Julie.. maybe you guys should take a road trip up there and buy a few bottles - - just save me one.

The Piano Bar

I saw someone perform at the piano bar in florentine yesterday... i loved some of the details of the place (and the home fries)

It would be amazing if I had a camera... or an iphone to actually take pictures of the actual detail... instead use your imagination:

ornate white cast iron fencing:

A crown molding chair rail around the room

Black and White Striped walls

Accented by Red Frames

and of course some greenery... they had a loft filled with plants
