Do You Miss This Face?

Another Moment For Perfection

First it was for Kate and now it is for Miss Anne Hathaway in Alexander McQueen. I have always been obsessed with white dresses and white lace and I’m loving the moment they are having in the fashion spotlight right now. This dress is pretty much my dream and a little reminiscent of a certain jazz-age era that my girls and I got dressed up in garb from for a lawn party last weekend (pics to come), love that. Nice job Rachel Zoe.

Just Kids on the Big Screen

I just read that my favorite novel of last year, Patti Smith's Just Kids, is being turned into a feature film and Smith herself is working on the screenplay. I am totally one for a biopic, especially if it has to do with rock n' roll (which they usually do), and although I am not always into movie versions of amazing books, I think this one could be up there with my fave the Virgin Suicides. It gets me excited just thinking about it, like most things having to do with Patti Smith somehow do. Who do you think they will cast as those two icons above?

I Can Take a Moment for Perfection

For those of you who had anything bad to say about Kate Moss's wedding dress (I did actually hear some negative comments), I think this photo via the pages of Vogue's September issue will quiet those crazy voices. It's perfect, as was the wedding, as was the magazine spread. If by some weird reason, you haven't seen the extra photos online, then by all means you should. They made me tear up when I saw them last week. I am very emotional apparently.

So yes, this is all I have to say for now, well I have tons of things to say, just no time to say them. The last few weeks I have been working at a fashion magazine, so all day long I have been constantly inundated with beautiful imagery and inspiring ideas for my blog and of course my closet. Although I admit I have somehow found the time to go shopping, my little blog has been neglected now that I am in an office full-time — and there is no slowing down as fashion month is just around the corner. But as I get more accustomed to this fast-paced life once again, more of it will transfer over here, I promise
. But now, a short moment for Kate.

My Summer So Far...

At the end of June a sad thing happened: my trusty camera broke. Completely my fault, as I left it on the deck of the beach house where my family was staying the one night it rained, ugh I know. Sadly, it was an issue that a bowl of rice could just not solve. Boo. So I am not sure if you have noticed, but there has been a lot less personal stuff on the blog as of late, well this lack of a camera is why my friend. I had my little Samsung (gifted to me at CosmoGirl) forever, so it was hard to come to terms with its demise. I know it is just a material object, but it's been with me at all times, documenting my life in NYC and Berlin and my travels and so many purchases in between.

I may not be the best photographer, but I am good at always taking photos to cherish on my own and share with you. So to spend a month plus change without that ability felt like losing a limb. Okay maybe that is a little dramatic, but it was hard. Letting go is hard, forking out dough is hard. But now that I have scored a few more gigs, last weekend I was able to buy myself a new camera and begin documenting once again. But I still felt like I lost so much time, so I decided to scour my Mom's Flickr, my friends' Facebook pages and my iPhone to see if I could illustrate just how fun this summer has been with their pics and the few I took before and after the camera debacle. So here's what I came up with from the lakes of England to the beaches of California to the rooftops of Brooklyn to the Fire Island ferry to the baby pool on the stoop and beyond...
