Fairytale Cottage

I love this tiny cottage transformation in the New York mountains. The owner redid the entire cottage for $3000! I am so impressed by her vision and craftsmanship! She sourced all the furnishings from flea markets including the windows and porch columns. She cut the holes in the walls, installed the windows, built the porch, she really did the whole thing all by herself. The result is like a magical little getaway from dreams. One day I hope to have a little studio in the middle of the woods (maybe just a tad less on the ubergirlie side) but somehow I think i will have to make sure it's got some plumbing and a little heat source for cold wintery nights...

Out and About

I came across this super cute parking sign walking Sadie the other day.  I LOVE that people go out of their way to make something so mundane be so special! (Sorry for the poorish quality of the photos they were taken on my phone.)

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dad's out there!  Wish I could've seen mine on Father's Day but am always thinking of you.  Hope your day ended with a beautiful sunset. XO

Alexander McQueen

Here are some of my favorite looks from Alexander McQueen's last collection, Fall 2010 RTW.  I am in awe of his genius manipulation of fabrics, use of color, and extraordinary imagination.  The last shot is by Annie Leibovitz for the July 2010 Vogue.  I think it really captures the idea of each of his pieces being a work of art and the end of a rare and magnificent talent.



Top four photos by Christopher Moore. Last photo by Annie Leibovitz.

The Sopranos

I love this series of paintings that one of my favorite artists, Francesco Clemente,  created for the Metropolitan Opera. They are of Sopranos scheduled to perform during the 2008-2009 opera season. Here are a few:

Sarah Jessica Parker

From Patty Greene in Square Pegs to Janey Glenn, and forever Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica Parker has always maintained her own unique style and look. I love how elegant and beautiful she looks in these stunning photos!
