MAY BOOKS: After seeing these on GMA and over on Elements of Style, I couldn't help myself and created 6 - SIX!- styles that I love for myself. I have no idea which to get, do you? $17 is not a bad price for 5x8, canvas covered books with 80 pages. These self-professed paper dorks are winners in my book, haha. Bonus: you can get wedding diaries, meal diaries, and baby bump diaries. Truly covered for all occasions!
How cool are these bracelets and necklaces I discovered from vendor Andrea Bocchio at a Brooklyn Flea Market (not the Bklyn Flea, but one near Smorgasburg). You can also buy them online at her etsy shop.
My new FABULOUS header is up - do you like? It's by my friend Inslee, who has a wonderful line of stationary and prints as well as a gorgeous blog that shows off all her commissions and other fashion sketches. I've featured her before on the site, but never have I been as excited to do so - now I have my very own "me!" Also, be sure to check out her kick ass instagram. See some of my favorites of hers below and stay tuned for a studio tour with her soon! I am just DYING over my new header and clean layout and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Here, just in time for summer's end (in case you have some rainy days and nights ahead of you, or all your friends are out in the Hamptons, a la moi), are Vanity Fair's 25 Most Stylish Movies. How many have you seen? I have a lot of catching up to do! I've only seen 11 of them!
Today out in Bridgehampton I hopped into Maison 24, this amazing store on the main drag. They have an eclectic mix of perfectly curated baubles and bits - from lucite skulls to glitter art to Alexandra Von Furtsenberg glassware, there's something for everyone's sense of taste and humor.
