oh my...

shoeslouis got pretty exited today when i collected all of my shoes from the various locations i had strewn them around the apartment and dumped them in a huge pile in the living room. i think he thought it was his reward for getting a hair cut and a bath today--no such luck lou. the goal of this project was to make my extensive shoe collection (64 pairs in all) more easily accessible on a day to day basis, to create a more organized storage system (more organized than: a few in the closet, some under the bed, a lot in the hall closet... more in the hall...) so in that sense, i was rather successful:

i chose to arrange they by frequency of use instead of color, even though the rainbow formation was rather visually stunning...  all are in one closet, and nothing ended up in the fridge. :)

foodie fashionista

imagine a soft warm breeze gently tousling your hair, the sun caressing your shoulders, the sweet smells of summer tickling your nose as you relax on the patio with a bowl of creamy strawberry ice cream, and this dreamy dress, swoon.

model as muse

yesterday kelsey and i set out to explore the museum mile festival with the intent of visiting the guggenheim for free. however, most of new york must have shared our stroke of brilliance as the line to get in stretched down and around the block. not in the mood for waiting we wandered down fifth avenue observing the sidewalk chalk mural being created by a multitude of impromptu artists and eating hot dogs, we ended up at the Met. once inside we were serendipitously led to the special exhibition: The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion. it was such a treat.

i think that i might have found the perfect strapy metallic sandal for summer. (remember that search?) i feel like the straps and the heel are just the right thickness that they'd work in the office or out on the town. what do you think? (click the shoe for more pics).

another year


monday night found me at a lovely party thrown by my wonderful friends- which clearly took me by complete surprise. there was pizza and champagne, and trick candles. it was fabulous.

now for more serious matters- i am shocked that i have reached the quarter century mark and my wardrobe is lacking all of the classic staples. we have already learned that i do not possess a trench coat, but i'm also missing the perfect Little Black Dress, i don't own a pencil skirt and my closet does not contain anything in cashmere. heartbreaking, i know. my plan for this year is to rectify this problem--with tim gunn's guide as my starting point. are you ready? this is going to be fun...
