Slim Aarons

Where is the movie that has art direction straight from a Slim Aarons shoot?

I want to watch it tonight. Maybe i'll watch A Single Man again.

The boy and I are talking about doing a Palm Springs/ Death Valley memorial day road trip. I picture it being something like this.

Excuse me while I find a high waisted bikini, caftan and some gilded flip flops.

Shoes-day Tuesday

Today's post is in honor of one of my favorite Portland shoes store finally launching an online shopping site.

I go to this store for last minute bargain Jeffrey Campbell, Biviel and Corso Comos. Most often the shoes I am looking for no one else wants.

Go figure!

Perfect Ombré, Perfect Weekend

Camped in Santa Cruz surrounded by the scents of a eucalyptus forest and strawberry fields.

Lazed on the beach and read a Vanity Fair cover-2-cover while the boy surfed.

Looked at some catamarans.

Enjoyed the near perfect sunny, high 70s weather.

I can get used to this.

Bouncing Back

I have had an intense couple of weeks. Part of it included a move to a new place. 24-hours in one of my kitties Björn got out and hasn't come home. (Hard way to learn my front door doesn't always completely latch.)

The day I posted the cat standing video me and my old roommate spent a half hour trying to teach Björn how to stand like that cat. Then we joked about making him wear a suit, tie and monocle.

Part of me hasn't wanted to replace that video.

It is time.

I have done everything I can and I think all my new and old neighbors are sick of me roaming the neighborhood at all hours looking for him.

I am about 2 weeks away from becoming a Cathy cartoon.

Back to Shoes:

and fun in life.

Making my day.

I have been sick while juggling a two moves, traveling and work. A friend sent this to me and it made me smile.

My cats were going crazy last night in the new place. I should train them to stand on their hind legs and be cute.

Thanks friend.

Dress & a Gig Poster

I love the series a Dress & a Gig Poster from The Shallow End.

It perfectly combines my two favorite loves: clothes and graphic design.

Burger Club

Hey Jess. Make me these.

That will solve 2 problems.

1.) How to continue burger club when we are b-r-o-k-e.
2.) Something useful to cut out when you go all scissor-manic next time. This looks cute. Not crazy.

Fall 2010

It isn't even warm. I haven't bought a new pair of sandals for the summer. I am still wearing tights and yet I cannot wait for Fall.

These sneak peaks into J.Crew's Fall 2010 catalogue make me want to keep wearing the tweed, thick knits and leather boots. It channels a bit of Daisy Buchanan.

Fall revival!

My New boyfriend

Jacob is moving to California on Friday.

JFP has been offering some musically inclined gems to take his place as my new boyfriend.

I hate having to choose. Life is hard.
