Hit It!

I bought a new tennis racquet today.

It's red.

It's totally old school.

It's totally awesome.

Now I just need to bribe some friends to play with me.

Down the Rabbit Hole

Starting to get really excited for this...

I love Johnny Depp and Tim Burton and everything they create. They can do no wrong.

Linda & Harriett

Beautiful new designs from one of my favorite letterpress paperies, Linda & Harriett. It's impossible to choose!

These adorable dresses are made from recycled letterpress scraps - no two are alike.

Happy Weekend!

It's the end of the first official week of summer! This weekend I'm looking forward to checking out some great artwork at the galleries in Troy, sipping cocktails on a restaurant patio with friends, a stoop sale on my street (stop by!), and the purchase of a new car!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

The Brothers Bloom

Tonight I went to see The Brothers Bloom. Overall, the movie is pretty perfect, and visually it's fantastic. The colors, locations, and fashion make it a cinematic feast for the eyes. Rachel Weisz was adorable, the men were sexy in crisp blacks and whites, and Rinko Kikuchi, well, Bang Bang was just plain awesome. It's one of those movies - like The Royal Tenenbaums -that's hard to place in any one specific time period. It looks like it could have taken place during the 60's, or 70's, or today.

It was gorgeous. I laughed and laughed. I love this movie!

I'm pretty sure each one of Rachel Weisz's outfits in the movie included at least one predominant vintage piece (or a new item directly created from an old design), like a dress or a coat. There was a pinkish-orange dress in one scene that was straight out of the 60's, but I haven't been able to find a picture of it.

Patterns & Colors on Fabric, Oh My!

I'm in the market for some fabric. Just look at these gorgeous patterns from Anna Maria Horner. Oh, I could easily spend a fortune to surround myself with such beautiful colors and prints.
