2.26 Day 18

Love to love ya...
LOVE is the new biannual magazine from Katie Grand and Conde Nast. LOVE is more than just a fashion magazine. LOVE is a twice-yearly compendium of inspiration - for designers, for artists, for anyone looking for visual ideas; for anyone who loves fashion and design so much that they want to climb inside the heads of their heroes. LOVE doesn't follow fashion: it sets fashion's agenda.

The best peace sign in the world...

These peaches hang out in my hometown in California. Any sweeter?

2.24 Day 16

Round 2
Some oldies. But goodies...

Bittersweet, this one is...
I'm just now able to listen to this song again, after years, without the ache.

Now all these songs need are some legit music videos.
So tired. And the day is just beginning.

2.20 Day 15

So I attempt to do all the good deeds I can muster. Pick up random trash, offer a light for someone who looks like they need one, open doors, offer up seats on the subway, all the "pleases" and "thank yous". That's just how I roll. Today, a mom with a stroller the size of a mini cooper was standing at the top of the subway stairs appearing to having a panic attack. I offered to help her carry her stroller down the stairs, she accepted. I, having just picked up my coat from the dry cleaners, spilled my coffee all over it in the process. I'm sorry, but when does the karma kick in? And, my birthday is tomorrow! Shoot.

I posted a piece of art I found, and purchased from Etsy, a while back. The artist just printed a new piece of cake that I also find quite lovely...
Thank you, Hijirik, for your email.

I'm off to part-eh! Happy birthday to me.

I'll take what he's having...

But these silly kids also make me smile. So today you can find me in my apartment dancing in my underwear and knee socks...

2.12 Day 11

Keith Lissner...
RTW Spring 2009
Edgy and girlie, punk and royal. I'm a sucker for the sweets. And this was just his debut collection.

I'm hooked (literally).
Never until I came to NY did I wear a coat so often and putting it on the bench at a club or the floor of a bar is um...gross? Because of course there are never enough coat racks and hooks for everyone. So this is cool...
A portable hook, looks like a pretty little compact.

I think Spring is in the air.

2.11 Day 10

I'm guilty of not making time for some of the reasons I came to NY for. The education, the career path. I have, on the other hand, made time for the little, red devil that perches on my shoulder now and then. I'm dabbling in new and rowdy behavior too often and recouping when I should be focusing. If I were a cat...
And this just feels like icing on the cake. Maybe even just sprinkles.

I apologize, mostly to myself, for not having the time nor energy at the moment for some fun filled fashion. Tomorrow...

Ok. Good night. Be good. At the least, be better than

2.08 Day 9

I'm feeling the butterflies...
This artist, musician, and fellow blogger based out of San Francisco has me weak in the knees...

And this is just a piece of the glitter. Prints and tees are reasonably priced (averaging a 20 bill). There is great music, Tycho, to hear as well on the site. In his bio, Mr. Scott Hansen seems all too humble about his skills. Good stuff. Check it.

Only in New York...
A few amusing memories I've accumulated along the way...

I'm out!

2.02 Day 7

Monday, Fun day?

I'm just going to leave you with this today...

NY was beautiful today. I lucked out at work and was able to spend two hours in the best weather I've experienced here yet. High five.
