Couldn't help it!

How insane is this ring, lucky lady Jane! The SeaofShoes gal included this little ditto in her outfit post today, and I'm pretty beyond myself. How amazing is this!?!?

For anyone who is wondering it is made by Antonio Palladino

"Swaying, hypnotic love cobras"

Found these trippy Säo Paulo anti-smoking ads on Adrants today. the point is to make you sick [as sick as smoking makes you sick], but I have to chuckle a little at the Copyranter's post on ANIMAL the blogger imagines what "if they were black light posters…"

Yeh I know, smoking is not funny...

"You're no Steven Meisel..."

Style just posted a quiz, which I took and was on the low end of mediocre... what can I say?
So how well do you know your supermodels?

Get this!

France is cracking down on Internet file sharers-- or at least they are trying to. After failed attempts to pass the "Création et Internet" bill, it has been resurrected yet again. Despite massive consumer protest, the bill aka the "three-strikes law" will likely be passed in May. Here is the gist: consumer copyright infringer will have three strikes, one by email, one by letter, and the third time they will be booted off the internet and put on the wifi "black list."

Intentions are to limit public wifi to "white list" users. Liberte? pff. But not to worry-- it is likely to have major opposition; the EU plans to pass an "overhaul" to make this French approach to copyright infringement illegal altogether.

Good Morning Sunshine: Somebody's Jealous

"As much as iPhone and App Store is a success for Apple, it's a humiliating defeat for the rest of the mobile industry...Twenty years of efforts from operators and vendors to create mobile applications that customers like is overtaken in a heartbeat by someone that [has] never done it before."

-Bengt Nordstrom, Chief Executive of telecoms consultant Northstream on the App store's success and the plans for it's new competitor Ovi.

It's easy to fall for the basic, the simple, the neutral pieces. They are fuss free, and they always manage to look chic. They are the non-color, the non-print. Case in point: The Nude Issue--Fashion 156 devoted a whole book to the idea of neutral. Just a little taste below: Acne heels and flush fashion editorial. Where can I get those sunglasses?!

"Please keep your hairy halitosis to yourselves"


It is the most gorgeous day in NYC today- a teaser for the glorious weekend to come. I want to go outside right now!!!

Before I do, I leave you with six clix:

1. LOVE has a floppy, hoppy contributing editor at large, meet Clara.

2. Silly, sarcastic cartoons. My favorite: "Do you like my little trees everyone?"

3. The beautiful life of NARS.

4. I was SO happy to see this on Found. Not because those creepy bugs thrill me, but because I am happy to learn I am not the only one haunted by them. Growing up, I always saw those on the walls (particularly where it meets the ceiling) in the summer time and they TERRIFIED me. they run so fast. Ah! Anyone else with me on that?

5. Overheard never fails to crack me up.

6. Holy shit. Um yes, I would say fairly tense :)

I have been busy with work and pre-occupied with my newest endeavor to read alllll of the books that have been sitting in my room.. waiting to be held and turned and to watch allll the movies I'm supposed to have already seen ie Hitchcock, Godard, the like. I'll be chitchatting about these things here soon. In the meantime, check out Bette Page, she was born today 1923! (Men.Style told me this and some other things worth knowing today).

“It’s hard to be with someone for five years and say, This isn’t going to work. But it was a time in my life where I finally just said, I can’t live for anyone else anymore. I have to be on my own.” -- Drew in Elle

Ha ha

This is so funny-- made my morning. Thanks Scout Holiday for posting.

Don't think that I am wah wah-ing that the weekend has come. It is quite the opposite! But I posted this picture because it is one of my favorites :)

Six clix I think you'll enjoy:

1. This made me sooooo happy. So did this, and pretty much anything Wes Johnson does.

2. Good luck finding an opening, but hey it is worth a shot.

3. Found something as good as Post Secret.

4. Just realized that Le Smoking, Le Fashion, Le Love, and OA are all the same blogger-- makes sense. hm, why this didn't click with me before is questionable. First and last are my faves.

5. Tilda, the fabulous

6. Spreading rumours is fun

Watching, waiting, deliberating

Intermix online has there Eyes On Christian Siriano's designs for spring. I don't blame them. But I just have to say-- Not that I didn't love him on the show, and not that his designs aren't amazing, but I am shocked-SHOCKED- that a project runway designer has come out booming. Up until now, there hasnt really been a winner who's been prominently present in the fashion world. Admittedly I am watching him as well, but waiting for a sale, and deciding if I can afford it even then :)
In the mean time it is fun to wish and peruse.

Doll Face

Miles Aldridge (son of Alan, UK artist well known for creating the Beatles trippy album illustrations) makes the everyday life a dreamy experience here in his exhibit at the Hamilton Gallery in London.

"What I'm trying to do is take something from real life and reconstruct it in a cinematic way."- Aldridge on Doll Face

Especially loving the siamese cats with the guitars...

GQ shoot about ties. Click here for more.

Claudia Schiffer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.


Gwynie's GOOP

I recently read about Gwyneth Paltrow's website GOOP in this nymag blurb about the rise in depression-era health regimens.

Before I checked it out, I was skeptical because I like eating and generally don't like people who don't.

But GOOP is more about the woman's likes and loves than her deprivations. So, Ill be regularly checking back for sure.

Way Better Than Just Guessing

Loving this forecasting website, Kurtli Weather, I saw on the always interesting Please Sir.

So very crafty and clever of the artist, you can check out every major city from Cape Town to Reno to Zurich.

Umbrella for Two

Huddling under an umbrella with a friend just got a little more roomy. Exhibit A: this spacious protector sold at the New Museum.

Currently Reading

" During the burning day when we were crossing Iowa, our talk kept returning to a central figure, a Bohemian girl whom we had known long ago and whom both of us admired. More than any other person we remembered, this girl seemed to mean to us the country, the conditions, the whole adventure of our childhood.

To speak her name was to call up pictures of people and places, to set a quiet drama going in one's brain."

Hoping the week flies by

Blog Binging: What I am Reading Today

I was about to go to the vending machine, when my friend directed me to The Token Fat Girl blog-- wasn't trying to hint at anything, she was just referring to the a posting about delicious Half Naked Popcorn.

This self-proclaimed "token fat girl" is documenting her journey to losing weight by combining techniques from the different weight loss programs she has tried throughout the years.

I think she is pretty fearless for doing so, and I am happily- starting now- a regular reader.
