Cooler than me

For our latest edition of who's cooler than me:
This chilly chica who can somehow turn harem pants and a hoodie
into the world's most perfect pair.

We all have a dark side

Equal parts sweet and scary. It's the Alexander McQueen Titanic Ballerina Pump.
Are there even words for this?

Top of the week

Friday afternoon is the top of the week. We'll pair the peak of the day with the peak of Topshop's goodies right now. What do you think the age limit on the mesh polka bow is?
Have a pretty weekend, lovers.

We all need

A good soak

There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure,

but I don't know many of them.

Boys for J Crew

The NY Times says:

“Every line should be unisex. A good piece of clothing is a good piece of clothing no matter who was meant to wear it in the first place.”

Good because I want the solid utility shirt, the anderson tartan bow tie, the secret wash button down and a few other choice items from the boyboy department at JCrew. Extra small for this doll?


Today's seven beautifuls

French pastries, gold buttons, This, Ballet, Lanvin and Etro Spring 2010 RTW, seeing stars in a city and these lovely dresses by Sarah Seven.

Oh, so this is where they keep the light

The darkness of this season is dreadful
Take a peak into Ashley Ann's DIY
nursery for a quick pick me up.
See before and after here
