Stina Persson

I heart Stockholm-based Stina Persson's illustrations. Her new website launched today, so check out her dreamy illustrations of women. They have a great feel and an inexplicable authenticity. (Plus, look at that cute bellybutton above!) For more, see her art for Cookie's witty sex column, or check out this lovely art boutique.

Jen Bekman's 20x200

New York gallerist Jen Bekman is revolutionizing the art world. This month, she launched the online art shop 20x200, where she sells new prints every week in editions of 200 for ONLY $20. That is insanely inexpensive. She's opening up the art world for everyone. Awesome, Jen! (This week's photo, above, is by Karolina Karlic. Isn't it pretty?)

Travel Fantasy #4: Santorini, Greece

Hmmm, I think it's a nice morning for a fantasy vacation, don't you? Let's jump on a plane to Santorini, Greece, and stay at the Ikies resort, in the Fisherman's house. Apart from its breathtaking aesthetic and location, the hotel is known for amazing service; one review read, “The staff lives for nothing more than to refill your cocktail." After hiking, swimming and lounging all day, we'll go to dinner dressed in Chris Benz's resort 2007 collection. What do you say, readers? Wanna go?

Vogue Girl Korea!

Guess what?! My blog was featured in the August issue of Vogue Girl (Korea)! I can't read much of it, but I'm so excited. (Hopefully they weren't making fun of me:) Happy Cavalier, a blog I've long admired, was also featured. Yahoo!

Psst, The Little Things

Are you ever irrationally attracted to random things? For some reason, I love when Alex has messy wet hair, like when he gets out of the shower or a pool. It smells nice and feels cold when I kiss him on his head! I also love when he wears nylon windbreakers, smells like laundry detergent, kisses me on the forehead and smiles enough to show his dimples. (Oooh, cute!) What do you find yourself attracted to?

Vogue India

Guess what?! Vogue just launched Vogue India, which is slated to be more colorful and vibrant than other Vogue editions. The cover features Indian models and actresses--as well as (randomly) Australian supermodel Gemma Ward.

I'm excited to get my hands on a copy--especially since I've found Indian style so intriguing since my sister married Paul, whose family is from India. I'm sure the magazine will be stunning--and successful, since the debut issue has a whopping 160+ ad pages!

Have a great outdoorsy weekend.

What is everyone up to? I'd love to hear!

Araks

I'm really busy this morning, so I'll let these clothes speak for themselves. By Araks. (I would love to wear these with their great necklines--and the requisite awesome bangs.)

Baileys Home and Garden

A wish list from England-based Baileys Home and Garden, which offers "everything including the kitchen sink." Their pieces would fit in pretty well in my dream house...

I can't wait to see this.

Christopher Wheeldon's much anticipated contemporary ballet company will perform Morphoses in October. Gorgeous. Look at those legs. Damn.

I miss Paris.

Ahh, I miss Paris. I had an epically stressful day yesterday and would love to hop on a flight and spend the week walking through the Luxembourg Gardens and through the Rodin, Louvre and Picasso museums.

Pretty necklace

I don't wear jewelry. I like to keep things very simple, and, also, I don't have any. But I am taken by this branch necklace. What a nice way to welcome in the fall. (via Camilla)

The weather feels like fall today.

On Sunday, Alex and I rented a convertible mini (teeny!) and went to the beach to celebrate the last day of summer. It was really cool and windy, and we rode bikes and ate pizza. The only sad part was that I got sunscreen in my eye for three hours and felt like a five year old. But overall, it was a great day. Welcome to fall, everybody!

Sartorial Crushes

I have a girl crush on her. She looks so pretty and friendly.

And a fashion crush on him. He is a tailor at Duncan Quinn and measured himself for his own suit. Rad.

Spooning

This post was originally published on September 14th, 2007. I now have one nice spoon.

Now and again, a trend will take the design blogging world by storm. First, there was clocky; then there was the Eames rocker. This fall, my friends, there are spoons. (Apparently the book above was the inspiration. Here are the resulting awesome photos from Kelly, Lena and Heather.)
Sadly, I have no nice spoons (not one!) so I cannot take part.

Have a fun weekend.

Fashion Love.

From Monique Lhuillier's spring 2008 collection. Love the femininity.
From Lela Rose's spring 2008 collection. Love the prints and necklines.

Parisian Shopping

Parisian women really do have amazing style. My mom and I spotted a few widespread trends when we were there last week:
* neutral, solid colors
* pretty flats, especially ballet flats (they were everywhere!)
* dudes on rollerblades
* older women with amazing sexuality (In Paris, you get hotter with age)

I was trying to stave off temptation but couldn't help splurging on a fall jacket from Maje, my favorite designer who is hard to find in the U.S. See her gorgeous fall/winter collection here.

The lingerie store Princesse Tam Tam is also fun. I'm not sure how high quality their stuff is -- If I were a big snob, I might say the lace should be softer -- but they have flirty lingerie that still feels romantic, if you want to bring home a treat for your honey....

Go Bene!!!

Congrats to our baby bene! We just found out that we are finalists for a Folio: Ozzie & Eddie Magazine Award. We're up for Best Travel Issue, along with Budget Travel (which I love; their editor is awesome and good natured) and National Geographic. Little bene, you are growing up so nice and strong!

Two Days in Paris

Not that I'm obsessed with Paris or anything, but I loved Two Days in Paris, written and directed by Julie Delpy. She always plays such authentic, neurotic, funny, brilliant characters. One reviewer likened her to a current-day Annie Hall. I lurve her and everything she does.

Back from Paris

My mom and I just got back from a wonderful, enchanting, giggly week in Paris. Looking through the photos is hilarious since there are so many of us hanging out in restaurants and cafes...a disproportionate amount, really :)

In Paris, we relied on a handy map, a lovely email from Vic, and Jordan's friend's amazingly charming guide (downloadable here--I'd highly recommend it). This happy sharing is one reason why I love the blogging community. Thank you SO much, everyone!

The restaurant we loved most of all was actually one Josh had discovered when he lived in Paris two years ago: L'Ourcine. We had loved it back then, and when I took my mom back on this trip, it was even more delicious. A three-course meal for just thirty euro in a simple, warm and welcoming restaurant (photos above).

Hope you had a nice week! xoxo
