AT THE BEACH //

My lovely and beautiful friend Kirk works at ODIN and we were in visiting him Saturday afternoon in the East Village location and he says to me: "try this, try this, every time I am here I wear it- it smells like sunscreen its amazing!!!" and was he ever right? And man does he ever know me. This sh*t is amazing. I have a thing for coconut oil / beach scented situations (queue the tried and true NEROLI 36 by Le Labo). So if your into beachy scents too, or even interesting scents that don't remind you of a cheap soccer mom with pearls in a food court - then CB I HATE PERFUMES are for you, try AT THE BEACH 66.

HEDI SLIMANE //

How much do you love HEDI SLIMANE? He is amazing. Beyond, I mean how can one person have such a resume? Even more amazing is the archive on his website/diary. Hours of pleasure...

FALLING FOR FALL //





Is anyone else falling for Fall like I am??... I mean it is 93 degrees and 93% humidity and I find myself drooling over these sueded, wooly, color blocked dreams ... all at La Garconne.

SECRETS //

I generally don't like to share my secrets when it comes to jewelry that looks like you spent 300 dollars on in, when in fact it was 30... but Urban Outfitters jewelry is just too good right now... many pieces strikingly similar to ETTER ELLEN and PAMELA LOVE, no??!

Oh well - the cats out of the bag now.

CAT EYES //

Last night over Bourbon 'Shirley Tempel's' (and duh, yes -I made this cocktail up) I taught my boyfriend about CAT EYES... I am still not sure he understood that it is actually more than "oh that black line" but the actual art of transforming your eye into that of a felines!? ... Anyway, it got me to thinking of Alexa, she just really just still is my no. 1 girl crush.

JENS LEKMAN //





Happy Saturday Kittens. I am enjoying the dreamy sounds of JENS LEKMAN as I do a little Saturday morning cleaning. He is really amazing, a one man show taking on the ukulele, horns and guitar on his own into a late 60's, early 70's cinematic explosion ... Enjoy.

CELINE //

I can't stop thinking about the CELINE sunnies I tried on in Florence last Friday... I should have just bit the bullet and got them. Should have. Would have. Could have.

HEARTBEATS //

My friend Kevin sternly warned me today that if he had to read "We Knit You" one more time he was going to cry... and lord knows we do not want to see that... no sir. So how is this little editorial from Rogue? I just love dreamcatchers.
