World outside my window

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012


Real live people watching is my favorite thing, it’s better than Facebook as far as I am concerned :) Luckily I live on a busy block. With three salons, a preschool, a few teeny restaurants, and about a thousand dog walkers, there’s always something to look at. I especially love the building right across the street that has a bright turquoise fire escape where people smoke, get some air, and talk on the phone.

I think Alex has picked up the people watching gene. When she gets up in the morning, she runs to the window and calls out everything she sees. Then she looks for her ‘friend’. There’s a very busy flooring company across the street and the same man is always there, loading and unloading the trucks all day long. Every morning without fail, he looks up and waves to her, then she gets shy and runs away. Who says New Yorkers aren’t friendly? One day we’ll have to go down and properly introduce ourselves!

I am desperately in love with this coat…..and anything Emerson Fry does for that matter.

Fall Wardrobe

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

Now that the temps are dropping (eh, kinda), and it’s fashion week, I am thinking about fall clothes. Summer is over, and it’s time I trade in my white Levi’s cut-offs for printed silk pants, and my racerback tops for floral button-downs. I saw these two beauties on the street this week, and they will be my inspiration. I mean hello, a bright Hermes headscarf with pastel floral shirt and tweed skirt? Perfection in seasonal transition dressing. And I’ve never seen a stripe I can’t get on board with. 


Part of me wants more of a streamlined look ala Carine. Ok, I did not see Carine this week, but she’s so amazing that when I saw this pic on All the Pretty Birds I had to paint her. She is flawless!! So, which look would you go with….
