Fall is upon something spooky

Go visit Sleepy Hollow. We did last weekend. You can tour Washington Irving's home and grave (we couldn't find the grave...ask for directions...but the cemetery is incredibly old and wonderfully creepy)


It's getting chilly

This weather makes me wish I had Ali MacGraw's wardrobe from Love Story

real music comes to Williamsburg

I was lucky enough to go to the Langhorne Slim concert last night.  Best time I have had at a show in ages. Not one bad song. Great performer, great band. No tricks, no elctro, just honest, great music.

Georgia O'Keeffe being nice and kind at the Whitney

Growing up in the southwest, you would see a lot of Georgia O'keeffe paintings and O'keeffe inspired work, but they are usually of skulls and flowers. While I could appreciate their relevance and beauty, I was never a huge fan. This was more or less what I was expecting to see when I went to her new show at the Whitney. However, I was surprised to see that the show really focuses on her often over looked abstractions and loved it. Put her life's work in a new light for me. Go check it out.

Not sure what sort of party Chris Benz had in mind for the girl who is wearing this amazing shrug, but where ever it is, I want to go. It is fantastic and I love the way it sits with the neutrals here.

my muse my hope

Clearly I am not the first to hop on this band wagon since she is on the cover of Pop and Love, but I am obsessed with Tavi. I have always feared what technology and over exposure to pop culture will do to America's youth, but Tavi Gevinson has not only given me hope, but has also become my new favorite fashion icon. I will never be as cool as this 13 year old girl from Chicago and I am totally fine with that. She has an amazing sense of reference and her style is insane for anyone of any age. Please do yourself a favor and check out her blog.
She has great shots of herself styled chicly as possible. My muse, I adore you.

Tim Burton

I am very excited about his upcoming retrospective at the Moma. Can't wait.

great source of inspiration

The Condé Nast online store is pretty incredible. They have a huge archive of beautiful images and illustrations for purchase. I am especially in love with many of the old images from House and Garden.
