Theyskens Theory boots available here // House of Harlow flats available here

Isn't it just so heartbreaking when a shoe you love and adore...and research and hunt...and purchase and wear...ends up an unflattering dance of the Praying Mantis? There's absolutely nothing more unbecoming in fashion than a girl that can't walk in heels. And I think my day has come. I have to hang up my dancing shoes and embrace the fact that I just can't do heels anymore. Don't get me wrong - a monster platform, a thick wedge, a fat chunky heel - all day every day (just kidding maybe 6 hours and some Excedrin, but still). I'm going to need to invest in some nicer flats - first up, these!

Still dreaming.


1 . 2 . 3
4 . 5 . 6

Now which to get? I'm leaning towards 5 and 9.


If I had somewhere fancy to go.

Coming in for the steal right at the finish line, my favorite video of 2011.


After that last failed attempt at a yard sale, we gave up on purging for a while. But after some almanac studying and dodging of last weekend's rain, we won't let our closets get the better of us this time around.

There will be a few more local sellers and a bounty of cheap stuff, good stuff, designer stuff, regular stuff, basically just a bunch of stuff you might want.

Also, we'll be holding a sample sale of Brook&Lyn goodies inside Keystone Row. I know you've been sad that New York has all the good sample sales, so don't say I never did anything for you my west coast people.

Hearts and farts.


Received a curious little package in the mail yesterday...

A paper weight? A bath bomb? A door stop? I'm really curious...

Aha! Rings!

When the packaging is just as good as what's inside.

Thank you RP/Encore!


The holidays are upon us. Time to crack open those wallets and get to spending. Here are some things I'd love to receive. *ahem family reading* and psssst! They won't break the bank!

  1. Voluspa Saijo Persimmon candle - No more sweaty husband smell! Promise!
  2. Jas MB leopard clutch - REHR!
  3. Theyskens Theory boots - Can't say no to a good black boot? Me either!
  4. Marni Emerald ring - Better than socks I'd say.
  5. NARS Schiap nail polish - The most jarring pink out there.
  6. Yohji Yamamoto: Me Dear Bomb book - For all you Yohji fans.
  7. Alexander Wang Jaclyn boots - See #3 (and then go see the price)
  8. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation - Seriously the best!
  9. Tom Binns safety pin earrings - Real safety pins in ears isn't punk rock, it's tetanus time.
  10. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores - This shit's like real life Gaussian blur for your face. Truth!

(Jokes aside, you need #10 in your life. You're welcome.)

Isn't she something?

It's safe to say that the single most rewarding thing about blogging (especially for an introvert like me) has been meeting really cool people that I would have otherwise never met. Take Molly here, do you know any jewelry designer/magic thrifter/amazing dog (hi Elmer!) owner/vegetable-endowed/killer dressers that look like this?
