An education

Ridiculousness makes life grand. The concept (and price!) of this Rodarte pencil case is pretty outlandish and thats exactly what makes it so wonderful. Buy it for your nine year old niece. She's bound to be the classiest of her class.

A mix

Pretty, young, and all mixed up.
Our stylish and unlikely pairing of the week is
Florals and stripes.
The "right" way to pair?
Stick within one color scheme and add a solid piece (my pick was a cardigan)
for cohesion.
Happy Mixing!

Man friend

Pyfling has a mostly fem readership but for the boys that follow
(read: Tom and Yan),
I thought I'd include some man tips for this week's installation

These tips come from designer Tom Ford
via an article that is, at least, four years old.
Oh the things we find when we're clearing out our inbox.

So, without further ado--

5 things a sexy man needs according to Tom Ford


Examples above include: NY Times, Levi's 501 straight leg jeans
, How to Be A Gentleman by John Bridges,
Wool suit by Hugo Boss and finally Kiehls facial fuel.
And finally, I found a great man style blog here
Happy Hunting, handsome friends and thanks for reading!

Poison in a Pretty Glass

Dressing to my favorite tune by The Nationals, Wasp Net.
The girl he's crooning about is "poison in a pretty glass" and
this is what (I think) she'd be wearing.
She's a sassy Pretty Young Fling

Speaking of stripes

Breton stripes are all over the place but we need ours to have a little something extra.
Lets DIY some jazz on the stripes of the moment.
We're already owning the American Apparel crew neck (shown on left, courtesy of but we want to transform it to Olivia Palermo's
jazzier version (shown right, courtesy of British vogue)
But how?!

What to do with your chambray shirt?
Wear open over florals or stripes.
Pair with leopard tights if you're feeling feisty

Bad Ballerina

When I've studied enough ballet to actually wear a tutu--remind me to pair it with an over sized tee or shrunken bomber jacket for my nights out.

Beyond the Wayfarer

Gimmie Gimmies never get these Alexander Wang Cat Eye sunglasses. The Fashion Spot says the wayfarer is passe and who am I to disagree? We're moving on up anyway with these golden glam goggles.
See them on a(n) (almost) famous face here or just buy them here .

A dozen roses.

My mother always said, "Its better to be a dozen roses than a rose among thorns". Keep pretty company, it feels nice. Stylist friends, Emily Current and Merritt Elliott (of Current/Elliott) complement each other's beauty and style so well. Let us all be blessed with pretty, well-dressed and (most importantly)UNCONDITIONAL friends.
