Mad Men Season 6


Are you ready?  It's almost time for a new season of Mad Men.  The two hour premiere is April 7th.  Isn't it strange to see how much the style has already changed as we move into the late 60s?  A few thing to note:  Megan's hair is kind of crazy, Betty is skinny again, Ginsberg and Stan are still around (check out the beard on Stan) and so is Peggy, although she seems to be on her own.  Can't wait!

Even though it's still snowing here, I have summer on the mind.  And nothing says summer more than a pair of strappy sandals.  I'm sooo ready to get my feet out of boots!  Last summer I could never make up my mind about which pair of sandals to buy, so I never bought a pair.  Wouldn't it by nice if I could get my hands (er, feet) on a pair of these handmade sandals by Sandalwitch.   If you're in or around San Francisco you can sign up to take a class from the talented sandal-maker.  Oh, to be back in California!

A Night With Nick Cave


Last week Tom and I headed to the Keswick Theater to see Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.  I put on my loudest vintage dress (the print is eerily similar to the one in the new Secret South collection) and the highest heels I own.  We don't go out very often so live it up, right?!  The show was, of course, amazing.  We saw him once before in NYC so I had an idea of what to expect.  Imagine going to a southern revival where the preacher is drunk, perverted and possessed.  In other words, it was pretty amazing!  If you have the chance to see him live, definitely check it out!

Orla Kiely Fall 2013


It hardly seems right to be posting a fall collection with the official start of spring right around the corner.  But since there's about an inch of snow falling right now, I think I'll make an exception.  Also, any collection inspired by Margot Tenenbaum is bound to catch my eye. Bouffant 60s hair?  Yes, please!

Ilana Kohn S/S 2013


I don't know why I've always shied from wearing a lot of prints.  But I have.  And I'm trying to change that habit.  Ilana Kohn's spring collection would make that easy!  I love the graphic quality of her prints.  I'm drawn to the grey and black prints, of course, but I think I would even try the pastel hued geometric print dress.

The Chick and The Duck


Over the weekend Tom and I experienced a bit of cute overload.  We were visiting friends who just happen to be transferring a dozen chicks and four adorable ducklings to their new enclosures.  They were outgrowing their old accommodations and the spring-like day we were having was the perfect opportunity for the little ones to explore their new homes.  Baby chicks are awfully cute, but man, I've gotta give it up for the baby ducks in the cuteness department.  I wanted to take them all home with me.  Of course, that would not have gone over well with the cats.  For helping with the transfer, we got the honor of naming two of the ducklings.  The little yellow one with the pink bill is named... Pink!  So of course the other one (on the far left) is Floyd.

Sessùn Spring 2013


Here is a lovely collection of pastel washed images of the spring collection from Sessùn.  So many wonderful prints and textures!  We're expecting several inches of snow to fall tonight so it's a bit of a fantasy to be looking at shorts and sundresses right now.  A girl can dream, right?
