True Love

I will seriously never get sick of stripes. They fade in and out of fashion-- but I'll forever cling to them- they're a wardrobe staple for me, just as important as a little black dress. I've sailed my whole life (which might have something to do with my obsession...) and I DIE of fashion joy whenever nautical inspirations sneak their way back into style. Magic.

Wildflowers and Whimsy

Loving the J Crew look book for Fall 10--annnnd that fabulous lip color.
Makes me feel like gathering flowers and skipping with glee because of my perfect new lipstick. Care to join?

Red Alert

I'm finding myself drawn to red lately--maybe I'm craving more passion in life?
nothing a killer red dress can't fix..., it seems I may reach the limit on my imaginary credit card early this week....

wedding wednesday: meghan and mike

Last summer my dearest friend got engaged. All year I've shared peaks of the inspirations and ideas as she planned her special day--This is the girl I've been friends with since we learned to read... We've helped each other through first kisses, first loves, heartbreaks, teen angst, packing for college {if you saw all the shoes she took you'd know why were BFFs} leaving home, getting jobs, going BACK to school... and so many horrible hair cuts it isn't worth counting.
So the fact that I was included so much in the planning of her wedding really means more than I could ever say. 

And now, I am every so pleased to present the Getz-Metzger wedding- from inspiration to reality.

island camping

This weekend my friends and I took a camping trip--to the Norwalk Islands off the coast of Connecticut.
It was perfection--there was biking, boating, bonfires-- and a lot of ocean swimming. Besides making me miss summer vacation, the adventure also reminded me how awesome my hair gets in the ocean- just a quick dip and suddenly the out-of-control frizzy mess {think Hermione Granger} that is my hair becomes manageable. Or at least I think it does... {there were no mirrors around- but my shadow looked pretty sweet...}
So my new goal is to find a way to get my hair salt-water-stylish... without having to take a dip in the ocean every morning... {or- to find a way to take a dip in the ocean every morning...whichever}

Style Notebook- Jellies!

Are you ready for a blast from the past? Remember Jelly Sandals? They used to look something like this:
I would beg and BEG my mother to let me wear them, even though they gave me horrible blisters {my obsession with shoes started early...} Now Jellies are getting a seriously grown-up make over- and the 6 year old in me is squealing with joy {gimme gimme gimme!}

What do you think of the plastic shoe trend?

london 2012

Can we talk about how excited I am for the 2012 Summer Olympics? The next BIG world sporting event now that the World Cup is over... and I adore these concept posters by Alan Clarke:


He says, “My thinking behind these posters was to convey the movement and energy of the games, in a simple yet abstract way.” Perfection.

sunday best

after suffering through 100+ degree weather all week- we finally have a little break-- 90 feels cool comparatively! This Sunday's outfit has a tropical color scheme- and is inspired by a desire to wear as little as possible when the temperatures in the city soar to new heights...
