So, remember this interview I did with School House's Rachel Weeks? Well, dropped by the School House blog recently & turns out they are posting pretty regularly these days & sharing loads of cool stuff! Would highly recommend tuning in!
Check out the School House blog here. Read the interview here. Learn more about School House here.
So, have I ever mentioned how 1 day I want to own a house in the country (& sheep!) & I want it to have a huge studio (perhaps converted from an old barn) where I can toil around making things for hours on end? Yeah, well, that's the dream. So...anyways, love studios, which is why I was excited to peak inside artist Robert Longo's NYC studio... Love dirty/messy art supplies:
Love seeing what inspires people:
Aint it grand? Check out the entire space here, on 1 of my favorite sites, The Selby
New stuff by Stella on her adidas site. Love. Go bright, go neutral...just go! Some of my faves:
Sometimes I can be...er...cheap. When it comes to what I run in, I am not. I am adamant about wearing gear that helps make a workout or run as effective as possible. Further, I think that nothing has the power to jump start a new workout routine like a great new workout wardrobe. I'm serious about this. Check out more from Stella here.
Speaking of happy, I couldn't have been more thrilled to find the work of artist, Chad Wys, recently. My favorites are his landscapes:
Very bold & stylish, but also serene, me thinks. I love them. Check out Chad Wys' Web site & his Etsy shop. Wys states on his site: "Painting, though the most difficult (and messy) of all the hobbies I've attempted, is often the most creatively gratifying." Love it.
Let's see, before going on a little blogging hiatus, I was in the process of showing how 1 dress could be worn for all 4 seasons (see summer & fall). Here's my stab at winter. Tights + heels + bling + clutch = perfect for all the holiday parties!
The artwork in my last post reminds me of 1 of my favorite Etsy shops, Janet Hill Studio. Aren't these works amazing?
I love a good portrait in the bedroom. Something so charming & classic about it, non? Janet Hill Studio portraits are a favorite of mine because they can be used in rooms designed in various styles, they are so versatile. Buy this amazing artist's work here.
I sort of imagine this simple celebration as the brainchild of a floral design-loving bride. Unusual color combination that is both easy & stunning. View all my wedding boards here.

Still insanely busy & nowhere near able to post as much as normal, but had to share some shots from the Chanel Fall 2009 Couture Collection. Since this is a hugely covered event, I thought I would just post a few of my favorite detail shots from the collection:

Wow, breezy, fresh & light. I am in love with this collection & can't wait for the rest of shows! This is, after all, the week that I practically live for. View the complete Alexis Mabille Fall 2009 Couture Collection here

PS: hopefully I will be able to blog a wee bit more this week, excuse my absence, been busy
Busy, schmisy. So a $95k home + $10k in renovations = this stunner...
Brooklyn couple is priced out of the Manhattan housing market. They buy a place in the Catskills for less than $100,000, budget $10,000 for renovations & create one of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen. Busy or not, I HAD to share this.
