John Jasperse

This piece at TBA this year changed my life.

I think about it all the time.


They opened with Rick Ross.

Excuse me while I watch this on repeat for the next 30 minutes. And not work.

Dear Santa,

I would like this perfect black bootie to be added to my wish list.

Masculine & feminine. Tough & gentle.

It would look great with cuffed jeans or pencil skirts.

Thank you kindly,

Sequin Skirt

Mmmm. Sequins.

This skirt made an appearance at a Holiday party last week. I sort of love it and wish I could wear it everyday.

How can I wear it everyday?

Also, sort of in love with how it matches my favorite spanish juice glasses.

And how that spanish juice glass is filled with the most delicious dry riesling.

Let's live in that moment forever.

Over the knees. Rustic like.

To wear with dresses.

Like this:

Love the jacket.

Any outfit that would allow me to feel like I am working in pajamas is a win.

Tolix Chairs

I am planning a re-do of everything in my apartment. Looking at these french bistro chairs for my dining room table.

Kinda love them.

Knock-offs or second hand of course.

Tolix Chair on DWR, Stools on Overstock, ebay.

375 Square Feet of Pure Love

When I talk about moving back to NY people wince at the living conditions.

Small, cramped expensive spaces.

To me, this sounds idyllic.

There are only two places I spend about 95% of my time in my apartment. The couch and the bed. Sometimes, I have to walk from the couch to the kitchen to refill my wine glass. In a 375 sq. ft apartment I wouldn't even have to get up to do that. I could revel in some ultimate laziness.

Anyway, this space is clever and amazing. I would like to drink wine in the garden and live in it forever.

It was my first.

Choux De Bruxelles

Do yourselves a favor and make this recipe sometime this week. It gets me through the cold months.

The butter is key. I add lemon zest and ample fresh cracked black pepper right before serving.

Sometimes (like tonight) I just have that for dinner with a glass of wine.

And it is delightful.

Bon temps.


Brussels Sprouts with White Beans and Pecorino
from Bon Appétit

8 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 pounds brussels sprouts, trimmed, cut in half lengthwise
6 garlic cloves, chopped
1 cup low-salt chicken broth
1 15-ounce can cannellini (white kidney beans), drained
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter
1 cup (about 4 ounces) coarsely grated young pecorino (such as a young Pecorino Toscano)

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in heavy large skillet over high heat. When just about to smoke, add half of brussels sprouts. Cook until brown, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Transfer to large bowl. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in same skillet. Add remaining brussels sprouts, reduce heat to medium-high, and cook until brown, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Transfer brussels sprouts to same bowl.

Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to skillet; increase heat to high. Add garlic; sauté until brown, stirring constantly, about 1 minute. Add broth and brussels sprouts. Cook until brussels sprouts are crisp-tender, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes. Add beans and butter; stir until butter melts and broth is reduced to glaze, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in cheese.

surchargés de travail

I have been working like a beast lately.

The only thing that has gotten me through my long hours is an unforgivable string of dance-y beats. It mostly makes me feel like a club kid but I get shit done.

For that, I will not complain.

Sew Time

I am head over heels for this jacket and skirt on Burda Style.

Portland finally whipped into fall and it is time to start breaking out the heavy wools.

I might take this Lagerfeld patter for a test spin.

Wish me luck!

Getting the craving.

More tattoos. I wanted my fork for 8 years. I figured after 8 years basically means forever. So I went for it.

Now it just seems impetuous.

But I am thinking and loving these inspirations.

Proenza Schouler Spring/Summer 2011

I am in love with the behind the scenes shots from the Proenza Schouler Spring/ Summer 2011 fashion show over at Jak & Jil.

The colors and textures. The intricacy of every detail. The seemingly laid backed-ness of the designers. The models lined up in their leather coats.

The perfect bootie/pump.

Life decisions are hard.

Ronnie Bass

I listened to this video on loop in the background during my entire TBA 2010 stint.

I actually miss it.

Systems colliding. They've begun son.
Radius dividing. You must join them.
Almost 35 now. It's not too late son.
The morning exciting. And it's here son.

Kate & Pete

Briefly forget everything tawdry heard about these two in the tabloids and indulge for a moment in the sweetness of their touch.

A soft kiss on the forehead.
A gentle hand at the nape of the neck.
Messy hair and imperfections mixed with seemingly genuine affection.

They are by far my favorite celebrity relationship in picture form.

Pretty amazing video from El Guincho.

nsfw for those of you that work in an office. Boobs.

Any of these Manimal Moccs for the fall and winter.

With my skinny cords and sweaters. We would be some sort of textural mishmash of awesomeness.

So cozy. So great.

Love Menu

My dear friend Emily has started using her amazing embroidery and watercolor technique to document her food adventures.

How great would it be to have a series of these hanging in your kitchen?

See more at Love Menu and then vote for her to win the foodblogger competition she is participating in!

UPDATE: Emily decided to sell them as she goes. View and purchase one at her shop.

I bought these wedge desert boots in impulse this weekend. I have worn them these two ways since getting them and am in love.

Fancy for PICA's Closing Night Dinner:

Casual for meetings and errands:

Thursday, September 9, 2010


Yep. Today marks the official beginning of my favorite 10 days of the year. PICA's TBA festival runs the 9th-19th. 10 glorious days of contemporary performance art including dance, non-traditional theater, workshops, late-nights, good food, lots of friends....heart.

The next ten days go like this: wake up, work at PICA, performance, food, performance, late night at the WORKS, sleep five hours, repeat.

I can hardly contain myself.

Looking forward to:

Well everything...

I have been wearing a lot of black and grey lately and my red lipstick hasn't been cutting it. I'm thinking something a little more sultry for fall and winter 2010.

On the look out for nudes and vampy purplish hues. Of course I am starting at the YSL counter. I have converted 5 ladies to this lipstick. It is like clouds on your lips.

YSL Rouge Volupté Perle in Mesmerizing Purple. It is softer and more glossy on your lips than it appears.
