GIRL CRUSH SITUATION //





I tend to get girl crushes from time to time.... and I am ok with that. This is more of a hair crush than anything I would say...

9 1/2 INCHES //





Anna Konstantinova by Matthew Webb for Fashion Gone Rogue. Man I like her, she sure is pretty. I really love this hair. It's got that Kim Basigner thing I am ever so obsessed with.

UP COMING //

I know I have told you the boys have arrived officially in NY... so now is your time to feast your eyes and ears on their amazingness. A bit of a NY welcoming show if you will... so get it together and give them a warm welcome.

FAMILY //

I just spent 5 days with my father here in NYC. I am so lucky that he comes to visit me as much as he does and that he enjoys exploring the city just as much as I do. Not only does he love having a beer with my friends on a Friday night but he will happy tag along with me to Williamsburg to the Flea and enjoy fabulous meal at Roebling Tea Room with the best of the hipsters. I also get to teach him about things like 'gentrification' while he teaches me about the Edgar Winter Group (you have to watch this amazingness). Ha Dad your truly Rad and NYC will miss you around.

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend.

SAGE LINUS //



Why does it always work this way? Summer of 10 I buy the most beautiful IVORY LINUS ever. We have this torrid love affair with the Williamsburg Bridge and the Dumbo waterfront all summer long... Then what happens? I go into Bicycle Habitat on Lafayette to do some Spring tuning and what do I see... two new models staring me in the face... and one... one is SAGE GREEN. Why do companies continually do this to us? Make us always want more... and feel discontent with what we have? Boo.

I guess I will just keep on loving my ivory dream though, plus she goes with more outfits... and when biking in NYC, thats what is really about, no??

THE BROTHERS HASLEGRAVE //




I wanted to share with you this amazing online magazine called THE SCOUT. It's pretty much the cats pajamas. It is the what's cool, who's cool and what's happening with all things cool. meow.

These Greenpoint based designing brothers are responsible for the interiors of the Manhattan Inn and Goat Town for starters. No wonder! Goat Town is amazing... the white subway tiles booths and the bathroom... oh and that record player, don't even get me started.

It's all too good.

DREAM MASTER //

ROEBLING TEA CATS //


I had one of the most fantastic brunches at the ROEBLING TEA ROOM yesterday and found out this interesting bit of info along the way. Apparently the chef Dennis Spina is the proud owner of this very famous UNITED BAMBOO cat! Chic!

PUMPED UP KICKS //

My friends; the lovely We Barbarians, have been touring with these guys and I had the chance to see them last weekend in Williamsburg. I am so hooked on this song, it makes me feel like a teenager and I like it... It's just a good happy song. Enjoy.

BEARDS PART TWO //



Today has been a bit crazy at the office (in a good way), we are all a bit slap happy that it is Friday. In that we have done our due dillegence in beard hunting and what we came across is astounding.

There is a whole blog or 2 dedicated purely to beards. I die.

The BEAREDED RYTHM slay me, watch their dance moves here. I just love our world sometimes.

Happy Friday.
