WOW. This week sort of flew by! I think i say that every week though, huh. Out here in San Francisco we are having SO. MUCH. RAIN. I tell ya, it was sunny and in the high 80s last week and now I’m thinking about having Greg make a fire tonight so we can all cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie. Despite the rain, Sam has been enjoying walks and then coming home and hogging up the entire couch…I told you he was a big boy!
So to kick off the weekend, here are some cool things I’ve came across this week. And yes, that picture up there is me. I was 22 and kickin’ it with my groovy friend Mirka, who was renting out Chuck Berry’s mini mansion with a bunch of her Cal Arts friends. Every day a new art project/photo shoot/film shoot was happening over there. I can’t remember what all these bunnies were for, but I do remember we had FUN! K, on to the links.
1. PICTURE PERFECT LITTLE KIDDOS.
The styling on these two portraits by Stephanie Rausser are so dang cute. Reminds me I need to take some more photos of my kooky vintage boy too…..found over on Eliza magazine.
2. STICKY SWEET.
I have always loved origami. And i think I already told you I love wrapping paper….so origami tape is something I feel like i MUST have! Check it out over on the Wantist.
3. OH CHEWIE, YA BIG SOFTIE.
This little guy is Awesome with a capital A. Once again, sassy Pilgrim doesn’t disappoint! Find out how to make one over here.
4. MASKED CREW-SADER.
Have you seen these sweet little downloadable masks over on J Crew? They’re free! Download them here. You’ll be taken to the J. Crew web site, and have to look on their left sidebar for a little b&w mask that says, “BOO!”
5. HIP HIPSTER HURRAY.
I’m kind of dying over the F/W 2011 duds from Talc. These kids are cooler than anyone I know. Except maybe Wolfie. 😉
6. WHAT WERE THEY REALLY SMOKING??
These vintage print as are both horrifying and hilarious….I think I prefer the Marlboro Man as a devious marketing tool. See more crazy retro ads over here.
7. AND THEY LIVED MODESTLY EVER AFTER.
8. I LOVE THE FLAVORS OF FALL.
I’m sooo excited autumn is here…it’s my favorite time of year. I love being snuggly and bundling up….and I love the food. This post of Tracy’s had me positively drooling. An amazing collection of autumnal treatsâ€”veggie and non. See ’em hereÂ on Shutterbean.
9. CASUAL DOORWAY GORGEOUSNESS.
British designer Eloise Grey shot some really lovely lookbook photos at her friend’s West London home. I love them. See more over at Honey Kennedy.
10. TARGET NEEDS TO START PAYING ME.
I swear I go there WAY too much. But I always find cool stuff. My last trip I saw a little bear hat, a Dr. Zhivago 60s faux fur pom pom hat, this cute foxy wallet, a cuckoo clock necklace, a deer ring AND a fox purse. Nope, I didn’t buy them all….but they all made me smile. Damn you, Target.
Jessi Arrington only packed 7 pairs of undies in her suitcase to TED….everything else she wore she thrifted over the weekend. While I don’t necessarily love every ensemble she puts together (she is even more color crazy than I am!), I thought she was super adorable and smart and her message was spot on! Watch her video here. It’s not too long and really great!
