Before and after

Graphic designer Louise Fili updated these logos. Her small changes make a huge difference, don't you agree?

Plums

That's all.

Reverse birds

I like reverse portraits of people, but birds are even funnier. The backwards position gives them so much personality. It's like they're rolling their eyes and thinking, Oh God, this woman with the camera again.

Have a great weekend.

Have a wonderful weekend, my dears! What are you up to? Since we'll be away next week, I've scheduled some of my favorite photographs to post every day, so please continue to visit, if you'd like. Meanwhile, here are a few great posts from around the web...xoxo

Don't you love the back of this dress?

What a gorgeous quilt.

It would be nice to work with your sister, especially if you made gorgeous clothes together.

A surprise party? No, a surprise dance!

Have a wonderful weekend, my dolls.

Plane picnics

Do you ever pack a picnic for the plane? In her book Cooking for Mr. Latte, Amanda Hesser devotes a whole chapter to plane picnics. For our flight tonight, I'm thinking: sandwiches with spicy mustard, cheddar cheese and tomato; olives; nuts; and two chocolate-chip cookies (plus a few extra to share with our seatmates).

Doesn't this pretty A.P.C. dress remind you of the night sky?

Paris in the rain

Luckily, Paris is still beautiful in the rain.

“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby." -- Langston Hughes

Paris forecast

Uh oh. Alex and I better pack our rainboots!

Gatsby save-the-dates

The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books, so I gasped when I saw these Gatsby-inspired save-the-dates for an outdoor wedding held under a tent at a Connecticut mansion. Swanky. Wouldn't you be psyched if you got this invitation in the mail?

P.S. A romantic pillow...

Makeup

I am terrible at applying makeup, so I usually just stick to mascara and lip gloss. What about you? But I'm inspired by this model, who has thick cat-eye eyeliner on her top lids, and that's about it. It's so sultry and pretty...and doesn't look too hard to copy!

Happy Earth Day

Photos by Elisabeth Dunker, whose two children must have the best summers. xo

A beautiful bride

This photo essay is heartbreaking but beautiful: "Katie Kirkpatrick, 21, held off cancer to celebrate the happiest day of her life. Breathing was difficult now; she had to use oxygen. The pain in her back was so intense it broke through the morphine. Her organs were shutting down but it would not stop her from marrying Nick Godwin, 23, who had been in love with Katie since 11th grade. Five days later, Katie died." -- Photographer Romain Blanquart.

(Thanks, Diane)

Mona & Holly

The new line Mona & Holly was inspired by "smart and tidy service uniforms of decades past," such as WWI nurse uniforms and 1950's stewardess outfits. Awesome.

My little brother


My little brother Nick held the Unemployment Olympics in April, so, last week, the BBC interviewed him about what it was like to be unemployed in New York. Thanks, Nick! It's cool to see you (and your yellow motorcycle) on camera.

What shoes do you wear on vacation?

I'm so excited for Paris next week, but I'm torn about what shoes to pack. My Converse are comfy, but all my other flats and heels give me blisters. Do you have any comfy but chic walking shoes? I'm stuck!

Peter Pan party!

When I was little, I 100% believed in Peter Pan, so my heart skipped a beat when I spotted the Peter Pan birthday party that artist Merrilee threw for her three-year-old son Atticus. How amazing is the illustration she did for the invitation?
