Around and About

It's been particularly rainy and cool here.  The fog and ocean air make me think of the very tips of the Canadian border towns in the Northeast and Northwest.  It's not so bad to give up sun for a few days.

in my head

Bits that are whirling around in my head of late.

Dreaming of motorbikes and design. This article makes me want a custom bike and be best friends with these creatives.

This blog is stark and lovely.

An evening with Grace Coddington? Why that sounds delightful, count me in.

These will make RAD gifts because they have actual purpose! Thanks, Cool Hunting for the hint.

I'm selling these stunners on eBay as I bought the wrong size, but boy they look good.

The photo I snuck-took when I visited the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.  Bruce Davidson's street photography is raw and cutting and will latch onto you.

boots I bought and love

I think boots are the best. I wear them year around (which you can really say about any piece of clothing in LA) but I feel they are the best investment. Plus no one will no you're 3 weeks late on that pedicure.  I found the Rag & Bone Newburry's on eBay for $280.  They run very large in my opinion and/or I'm beginning to sense there is some vanity sizing thing happening in the shoe department.  I have steadily been making my way down from a 37 to a 36.5 and now a 36. So, cheers to small fair feet!

thank you for shopping

I have come off the rails.  My internet shopping spree is mostly fueled by motivation to snatch the most discounted of discounts on items I have been eyeballing through Fall 2012.  It's just an added bonus when I can actually manage to find gift items as well, because let's be frank, we online shop for ourselves, right? Dear god I hope I'm not alone on this one because I'm desperately trying to ignore-away the guilt monster sitting in the corner and I need to know I'm in the company of other internet shopping obsessors. In rapid succession I managed to grab the Alexander Wang Cato wedge boot from Net-A-Porter for 50% off, Chanel eye cream from Saks (they gave me $25 gift card for my $100 beauty purchase + it's a gift!), much needed 6" salad plates from Crate & Barrel plus some bangin' brass candlestick holders and a full sweep of ASOS (or a-sauce as my friend says) allowed me to grab 30% off a trunk load of shirts for the dude and a few pieces for myself, notably Le Catch's leather sleeve embroidered top.
