Yesterday, I basically had the worst day ever. All I could think about is when I get home, I would be able to collapse into my wonderful and cozy apartment. My favorite aspect about my apartment is my huge closet, which honestly, I can't capture in one shot; perhaps I will time several pictures over time. I don't normally post anything about my actual material life in the raw but here are some pictures of my apartment on a cloudy Sunday morning. It's completely undone but this is a bit of who I am... While we're on the subject of my apartment, I have always had a strange obsession with taking pictures of my bed when it isn't made. Sigh, I still have so much to add to my place...

p.s. next post will be of my ps1. yes, i got one. yes, i can't believe it.

Julia Roitfeld

Love the simple shoe rack and amazing shoes.

I want/need that rug.

All white everything. This is the underlying principle of my apartment.
Cozy white if there is such a thing.

Here are some pictures of Julia Roitfeld's apartment in Manhattan by The Selby. I just find them so simply and haphazardly inspiring. I've been getting more into decor and organizing my clothes lately (aka. obsessed with it) since I've moved into my new beautiful space with a giant closet nonetheless!

Please click on the picture for close ups.
I feel wrong for having such small images of it.


Shabby Apple Giveaway

Hello lovely readers, I am hosting a giveaway for Shabby Apple for a Jacob's Pillow dress. I think that the print on this dress is quite quirky and I have been getting into this more form fitting silhouette recently. I think its really nice sometimes to just feel like something truly fits. All you need to do to win this dress is to leave a comment and tell me what you like most about it! Thanks Shabby Apple!

Since you all had such great answers,
I used a random number generator
and the winner is: Ashlyn! Congratulations!

I think my philosophy about blogging
(a word I hate) is how to edit.
No matter what or who you're posting,
I think what makes an aesthetic is not
what designer you choose.
It's more like what you can put together,
like a loose collage.
However, I do love Marni, and in this case,
take the designer into consideration.


Okay, I realize that my obsession is getting weird.
But I thought I'd share it with you anyways.
Thanks net-a-porter for tipping me off!

Hair envy

I was looking at some photos of women at Paris fashion week
(I don't even know if it's this year or last)
and I know that they were all so chic,
but this one girl stood out.
Not only because of what she was wearing
but how she was using her hair as her best accessory.
(Okay, let's face it, she also has a killer jacket
in the right combo colors in general.)
I've been obsessed, however, with hair lately and to be frank,
I'm tired of the straight really really really long hair
that I always see on the streets of NY.
Instead, let's get crazy with the hairspray y'all.
I also just included a random picture of Garance Doré
because I am in love with her wit and understatedness.

Pierry Hardy for Gap shoes

I don't even know why I'm tipping you off about these.
If you think you're going to get in line for them,
you ought to bet that I'll be in front of you in that line,
ready to buy all four pairs in size 7.

Isabel Marant F/W 2010

Hit or miss basically.
Her second look is her best look.
These looks are simple and wearable nonetheless.

Dries F/W 2010

If I could wear only one designer for the rest of my life,
I would probably pick Dries or Marni. (upcoming)


These two looks stood out to me.
(1) Love the pop of color of the denim shirt
(2) Looks so effortlessly French girl-esque.
They will inspire me this upcoming Fall.

Givenchy Again F/W 2010

Again, this collection speaks for itself.
Whatever you're doing Givenchy,
you're doing a good job.
Thanks again Tavi for tipping me off.

Viktor and Rolf F/W 2010

Darker, which seems inappropriate for the season right now.
I love it for the structure and draping at the same time.

Barneys: Heartbreaker

I tried to buy these Opening Ceremony boots on
They said they had them in my size,
but they tricked me.
They sent me an email 2 days later
saying something along the lines of:
"Sorry, our bad! We don't have them."
I've been coveting them for a year now.
This has happened to 2 other people I know.
So beware shoppers don't get your hopes up.


As if you haven't seen this bag before!
In order to work on delaying my instant gratification,
I'm going to save for this bag by the end of next spring.
It will go perfectly with my lifestyle as a book carrying,
paper hauling, but quite fancy graduate student.

Finsk Again

Aren't these just mindblowing?
I know a lot of people are obsessed.
I am one of them.
Architectural shoes are my weakness.
Thanks to Finsk and Finskblog for their images.
